CONTEST TIME: Who From The Expansion Era Ballot Gets Elected To The HOF???

CONTEST TIME: Who From The Expansion Era Ballot Gets Elected To The HOF???

The title of this post says it all.

And on Monday, December 9, we will know the answers to the question.

But, in the meantime, we can make our predictions and have a prize for the players that guess correctly, can’t we??  I think we can!!!

So, here is how this will work.  Review the 12 names on the ‘Expansion Era Ballot’ and submit your picks for who you think will be selected from this list and elected into the Baseball Hall Of Fame with the class of 2014.  You can pick as many players as you wish, or if you don’t think anyone will be chosen, you may state ‘none’.  Either way, if you get the picks correct, you can win.  Each correct selection will earn you 1 point.  UPDATED RULE SUBMIT AT 10:33PM – Be careful with your picks, because a wrong selection will deduct one point from your tally.  And if we have multiple players with the same number of points after the positives and negatives are counted, those names will be thrown into an online list randomizer and a winner be selected from that smaller group.

Sound like fun?

Sweet!  Here is the list of eligible entrants:

  • Dave Concepcion
  • Bobby Cox
  • Steve Garvey
  • Tommy John
  • Tony LaRussa
  • Billy Martin
  • Marvin Miller
  • Dave Parker
  • Dan Quisenberry
  • Ted Simmons
  • George Steinbrenner
  • Joe Torre

Ok, now get going and make your picks.  To be eligible for this contest, all picks must be submit as a comment on this post.  All picks must be posted by Sunday at 8:00PM and I will provide a list of all of the players and their selections on Monday morning.

  1. I’m guessing all twelve. Playing the system. ;)

  2. Bobby Cox
    Billy Martin

    Joe Torre

  3. Joe Torre and Bobby Cox. And may I suggest subtracting one point for each pick that did not make it? Otherwise, picking all of the names on the list would guarantee being on the short list.

  4. cox, larussa, torre, garvey (a guy can dream, right?)

  5. Tony LaRussa, George Steinbrenner, Bobby Cox

  6. DJ- I think your suggestion is an excellent way to cover both sides. I will amend the contest rules. Justin, Jason, DJ, GCRL, SuperDuperMan99 – Feel free to make adjustments to your picks if you’d like.
