The fine folks at A&E Home Video have provided me with three copies of the complete World Series DVD set — that is, the set with all five games — to distribute to you folks, the fine readers of OYNAG. So here’s how I’m going to do it. Please read the rules and guidelines carefully. And in the event of any dispute, I am the sole arbiter of who gets the sets.
I have three prediction questions. Each prediction question will yield one winner of the DVD set. The first correct answer for each question that is posted in the replies to this post AFTER NOON CENTRAL TIME ON MONDAY JAN. 8 will win one set. You may only enter once, and you may only win one set. So if the first person to post after the designated time gets all three questions right, then we will go on to the next person to get question 2 for the second set, and the next person to get question 3 for the third set.
The questions are as follows:
1. Who will be the first five pitchers to start games for the Cardinals in the 2007 regular season? It does not have to be in order. I just want the five names. Not necessarily the first five GAMES, since with off days there’s a good chance somebody will go more than once in the first five games. But the first five pitchers to start one game in the 2007 regular season for St. Louis.
2. Who will record the first save of the regular season for the Cardinals?
3. On Opening Day, who will bat in each of the following spots for the Cardinals: second, sixth and seventh? Name the player AND the spot. Just having the right three players is not enough. You must have them in order.
Please DO NOT POST YOUR ANSWERS until after noon Central time on Monday, Jan. 8. You may only post one set of answers. I will contact the winners seeking their addresses. Good luck, and have fun.
