In honor of the Padres’ first Cactus League game (a charity event against the Mariners @ 12:05 p.m. PT, XM 180), and to celebrate the release of the Ducksnorts 2008 Baseball Annual, it’s time for the second annual Ducksnorts “Guess the Padres’ Opening Day Roster” contest. Here’s how it works:
- Submit your guess via the handy contact form or leave it in the comments. Identify the 25 players you think will break camp with the big club.
- Include the name of the player you think will score the Padres’ first run of the 2008 season; this will be used in the event of a tie. If the tie still cannot be broken, my wife will pick names from a hat. I know it’s not the most scientific method, but I want to keep this simple and get as many people involved as possible.
- Entries are due by Sunday, March 9, 2008, 11:59 p.m. PT. There is no fee; anyone is welcome to play. One submission per person, please.
- Results will be tabulated on opening day; whoever gets the highest percentage of correct names wins a copy of the Ducksnorts 2008 Baseball Annual.
- I’ll be participating for fun. If I should win, the book goes to our first runner-up.
Any questions? If not, start sending your guesses and we’ll go from there. Have fun, and good luck!
