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....
GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY PREDICTING!
