On Wednesday, Randy Johnson goes for his 300th win against the Nationals in D.C. The big question: how many people will show up to watch?

Umpbump is giving away a free copy of Ron Darling’s book “The Complete Game” to the person who can come the closest to guessing tomorrow night’s paid attendance without going over.

Some things to consider:

1. There is a 60% chance of thunderstorms.

2. The Nationals are on pace to lose 99 games.

3. Randy Johnson plays for the Giants, who are pretty bad themselves.

Leave your guesses in the comments section. And remember folks, “The Price is Right” rules are in effect.

UPDATE: I’ve closed the comments on the post, because we’re now T-minus 30 minutes to game time. For what it’s worth, I can’t believe nobody guessed 1 person.

    32,500. And I swear to god, if any of you do the 32,501 crap, I will… Umm… I will do something. Maybe bake a cake. I don’t know, I’ll have to think about it.

  2. I don’t know why anyone would go 32,501. You think 10,000 more than their average attendance is gonna show up on a Wednesday night, for the Nationals vs. Giants in Washington? I’ll say 23,519.

  3. Robert Tyson says:

    I’ll go 20,750 here. Those average numbers are a little inflated. Phils and Mets fans come in droves when they are in DC.

  4. Alex Riley says:

    21,549 was the first number that came to my head. I’ll go with that.

  5. I’ll go with 22,525.

  6. How about 24,472

  7. Jonathan Strand says:


  8. 14,700 just like when I used to go see him at the Kingdome, some 280 wins ago.

  9. 13,000

  10. Kirk Miller says:


  11. 22,365

  12. Nick Kapur says:


  13. 15,550

  14. 13,480

  15. 12,572
