Opening Day Lineup Contest

Can you believe it?  Only 105 more days until opening day!  It does seems like that's quite some time, but with so many questions left on the Braves -- 1B, LF, RF, which of our 6 starting pitchers get traded, bench, etc. -- there's no doubt there will be plenty of stories to develop over the next 3 and a half months.

As of right now, this contest is just for bragging rights and a big air-five, but maybe someone will be able to round up a prize package or something.  I think it would be great to see everyone's predictions for the upcoming season...and heck, this is almost like rosterbating, so I'm sure we'll have a ton of participants. :)

All entries are due by 11:59 PM (Eastern Time) December 31st, 2009

1.  Name the Braves batting order on Opening Day.  1 point for each correct name in the correct batting slot in the order. (9 points possible)

2.  Name the Braves positional starters for the game.  1 point for each correct name in the correct position during the 1st pitch of the game. (9 points possible)

18 points are possible.

In case of a tie:

Tiebreaker #1: Who strikes out first for the Braves?

Tiebreaker #2: Who hits the first double for the Braves?

Tiebreaker #3: Who scores the first run of the game/season for the Braves?

Here is an example of what it should look like (or close to it):

McLouth - CF

Prado - 2B

Chipper - 3B

FUGA - LF

And so on....

And then for the tiebreaker questions: 1. Greg Norton  2. Diory Hernandez  3. Albert Pujols

GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY PREDICTING!
