I got seven out of 10, missing Nos. 5, 7, and 8. But that is admittedly with some educated guessing on a few, rather than knowing for sure the exact rule.

What's amazing is the wide range of scores for some of the players, coaches and ESPN analysts, which you can see here:




    Number of correct answers on our 10-question quiz:

    Players

    Brad Ziegler (D-backs), 10
    David Ross (Red Sox), 9
    J.J. Putz (D-backs), 8
    Andrew Bailey (Red Sox), 8
    Justin Morneau (Twins), 7
    J.J. Hardy (Orioles), 7
    Evan Longoria (Rays), 6
    Daniel Hudson (D-backs), 6
    Glen Perkins (Twins), 5
    Chad Durbin, 5
    Jayson Werth (Nationals), 5
    Adam Dunn (White Sox), 4
    Jimmy Rollins (Phillies), 4
    Greg Burke (Mets), 4
    Jeremy Guthrie (Royals), 4
    Elliot Johnson (Royals), 4
    Skip Schumaker (Dodgers), 4
    Josh Collmenter (D-backs), 4
    Michael Young (Phillies), 3
    Sam Fuld (Rays), 3

    Manager/coaches

    John Farrell (Red Sox), 9
    Bob Geren (Mets), 8
    Terry Steinbach (Twins), 6
    Tom Foley (Rays), 5
    Derek Shelton (Rays), 5

    Media

    Dave Schoenfield (ESPN.com), 7
    Jayson Stark (ESPN.com), 6
    Tim Kurkjian (ESPN), 5
    Doug Glanville (ESPN), 5
    Dan Gladden (Twins), 4
    Jerry Crasnick (ESPN.com), 3
    Aaron Boone (ESPN), 1


I would have really loved to see an umpire or ex-umpire participate, but I have to believe ESPN would have difficult time convincing any to do so. So how'd you do?

Why not fire him after the doubleheader? Because it's FATHER'S DAY. They wanted to wait until after Father's Day so they waited until Monday and as it's been pointed out, they were on the west coast and the game wasn't over until later.
