Yesterday, we asked readers to guess how many people would show up to watch Randy Johnson attempt to win his 300th game.

At stake was a copy of Ron Darling’s new book, “The Complete Game.”

But the game got rained out.

So here’s what we’re going to do. We’ve got four hours before Johnson tries for a second time to win his 300th game. If you already guessed yesterday and you don’t want to change your guess, that’s cool. The old guesses will still count. If you want to change your guess, leave a new one in the comments. If you didn’t guess before but you want to join the fun, now’s your chance. Again, just leave your answer in the comments section.

I’ll close the comments a few minutes before game time, so get your guesses in now. And remember, it’s “The Price is Right” rules. The person who is the closest without going over wins.

  1. Oh my god, I hope somebody out there is a big enough dick to guess 2.

  2. I’m going an even 20,000

  3. I can’t believe the game is delayed. Again. I wonder if this is God’s way of saying, “Hey Randy, maybe in your next life you should be less of a surly jerk”?

  4. 17,321

  5. 15,550

  6. This game is on MLB Network right now – there are about 23 people there – and I am counting Randy Johnson’s son.

    On a positive note – 3 dudes showed up and painted ‘300’ on their chests – so it is a small, but enthusiastic crowd.
