Win something would ya?

Third Annual GET SOME Pittsburgh Pirates Gear Contest

UPDATE:  Two confirmed prizes in the mix will be an autographed Andrew McCutchen baseball and your pick of a Pirates authentic jersey. For those who have played in the past, you know the drill.  The deadline is before the Pittsburgh Pirates take the field at Wrigley on opening day.  Get your picks in early and you won’t be bounced like JackWRox was a couple years back.   Be sure you stay alive until baseball season ends, so we can reach out to you for your prize bonanza.

Here are the 2011 GET SOME requirements:

You will be picking the NL Central Division winner, the last place team in the NL Central Division, and naming the team that will win the 2011 World Series.   You will also predict the Pirate player that will have the most homeruns,  and the pitcher that compiles the most strikeouts.   Tiebreaker:  Number of saves by Joel Hanrahan.

It’s very easy…a sample (loser) ballot would look like this: 

Reds (NLChumps), Astros (NLCellar), Phillies (WS), Ronald Cedeno (Most PBC HR), Scott Olsen (Most PBC K), 45 (Tiebreaker:  Joel Hanrahan saves) 

The point system for GET SOME will be as follows:

10 points for naming NL Central Champion.

10 points for naming the correct cellar dweller in the NL Central.

20 points for naming the World Series winner.

15 points for naming the Pirates player with the most homeruns at the end of the season.

15 points for naming Pirates pitcher that leads the team in strikeouts at the end of the season.

You get one entry.  One shot. One opportunity.  Got it?  Great. 

The prizes are autographed balls, clothing and other cool items that we collect throughout our travels this year. 

The overall winner gets their choice of two items.  We will email the winner their options probably in November after the Pirates championship parade is over.  Once the winner picks, the second place winner…and so on pick until all the memorabilia is gone.  Usually the top three or four get cool stuff.  The rest of you get a magnet.    Heh, you all can’t be winners dammit.  Ready?  Go.  Drop your pick below.
