Home Run Derby August 11

Unread postby Pabo » Sat Aug 11, 2012 2:18 pm

Okay gang…here’s a little game we can play tonight: Home Run Derby. Pretty straight-forward. Pick one player from either team that you think will hit a home run in tonight’s Indians-Red Sox game, and post it in this thread. You get one pick. So just pop in here and post a name. No commentary required, although smarmy remarks about the Tribe’s hitting prowess will be accepted. If your guy homers, you get 100 points. Each additional homer nets you another 100 points. And like the old TV show “Whose Line Is It Anyway,” points mean nothing. Winner need not be present. Your mileage may vary. No purchase necessary. It’s just a little exercise to try to make this god-forsaken baseball season end. Entries close at 6:05 p.m., which is tonight’s start time. Plenty of good seats still available.

Tonight’s starters: Franklin Morales (L) for them, Zach McAllister (R) for us.


My pick: Jarrod Saltalamacchia

So have at it. Good luck, and please play responsibly.

Entries are now closed. This has been such a raging success, we'll try it again tomorrow. Real dark horse you went with there, m'scratcher. Good luck everyone.

Un.Be.Lieve.Able. Lillibridge hits a home run. Wow! Again, the "blind squirrel find nut" in action.

Actually, StewieG did! And he's the grand winner of...nothing? Brownie points are sooooo tasty! :salute:

Can you recommend some good stocks to invest in? Or perhaps some winning lottery numbers?

I'm the Goddamn Batman.

Dump everything you have into facebook stock. That shit's going places.

Winning lottery numbers: 1-2-3-4-5. The same as the combination to my luggage.
