At the end of February we held a “Guess the Opening Day roster” contest. Many participated, and one emerged victorious: long-time reader Bruce K. nailed 22 of the 25 roster spots, missing only on Justin Huber (which all 20 of us missed for obvious reasons — the contest closed on March 9, and Huber didn’t join the Padres until March 26), Wil Ledezma (only one person had him on their list), and Paul McAnulty (four people had him listed).
Congratulations to Bruce! For his efforts, he will receive a copy of the Ducksnorts 2008 Baseball Annual. Thanks to all who participated, and special thanks to reader Colin, who sponsored this contest. Go Padres!
