Predict the AL All-Star Team - $25 to Winner

Unread postby swerb » Thu Jun 28, 2007 9:24 am

Predict the AL All-Star team and win a $25 gift card to Amazon.com, Best Buy, or any other retailer/restaraunt of your choice. Contest closes as soon as the reserves and pitchers are announced, which I believe is in a couple of days.

Everyone gets the fan starters, which will be officially announced tomorrow. However, these guys are pretty much locked in.

C - Ivan Rodriguez, Det
1b - David Ortiz, Bos
2b - Placido Polanco, Det
ss - Derek Jeter, NYY
3b - Alex Rodriguez, NYY
of - Vlad Guerrero, Ana
of - Magglio Ordonez, Det
of - Ichiro Suzuki, Sea

Manny Ramirez is still evry much alive. Here's the current AL outfield voting, which ends tonight at midnight:

1. Guerrero, V. Angels 2,043,824
2. Ordonez, M. Tigers 1,445,899
3. Suzuki, I. Mariners 1,409,762
4. Ramirez, M. Red Sox 1,386,522


What this contest is for is picking the pitching staff and the reserves. Remember, every team must be represented. Rosters total 36 players, so everyone will be selecting 28 players after being given the 8 fan selections. Initial rosters total 35 players, then one guy is added in th MLB.com snub fan vote for a total of 36.

Good luck.

Son of a..... the Braves game is only in the bottom of the 6th so the All-Star Selection Show is a good hour away.

Hideki Okajima wins the fan vote.

So we have a tie. Jumbo, Tribefan24 ... email me or PM me your addresses. I will send you each out a $15 gift card to the retailer of your choice.

(NO Red Sox Team Shop gift cards though Jumbo!)
