CONTEST TIME – The Battle For The National League West
The battle for the lead in the National League West is the tightest race for division supremacy in baseball.
Not surprisingly, it is the San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers who are fighting it out for the division crown.
These two teams will battle each other in a 3-game set that starts on Monday, the 20th.
And since I pay attention to both teams. And since I really like the pitching staffs from both, I thought this would be a great opportunity to hold another contest at ’30-Year Old Cardboard’.
So, here is how it will work – Guess the total number of strikeouts from this 3-game series.
Yes, it is that easy. Simply leave a comment on this post with what you expect to be the total number of combined strikeouts from both teams. And after the three games are over, I will tally up the final number and the person that is closest to the actual number, without going over, is the winner.
And with pitchers like Kershaw, and Cain, and Billinglsy, and Linceum, and Bumgarner taking the mound, there could be a lot of K’s!!!
The winner will get this prize – a lot of baseball cards featuring a Hall of Famer from each team, Juan Marichal and Jackie Robinson!!!
So, get going. Make your pick right now. I will keep the entry window open for this contest until Sunday night at 8PM. And on Monday morning, I will recap all of the players and their picks.
Good Luck everyone!!!
