    The 11th Annual NYYFans.com Prediction Contest - 2012 Edition

    For the 11th straight year we are please and proud to present the NYYFans.com Prediction Contest - the 2012 edition.

    A contest that begins in the beginning of March and ends (hopefully) in early November...


    This year's contest is ready and Lou's site has been updated.


    Here is the link to the contest:
    http://rltranstech.com/nyyfans/



    Before you begin, please be aware of the following rules:
    1. You must be a member of the NYYFans forums to participate in this contest. (Fans of any team may particpate.)
      1. If you are not already a member, please sign up.
    2. You must remain a posting member of the forums from now through the end of the 2012 baseball season.
    3. Here's how the contest works:
      1. The first section of the contest is a set of simple yes-or-no questions on whether a player will be on the opening day roster. (Note: If a player is on the disabled list to start the season, he will be counted as a YES as part of the 25 man roster.)
      2. The second section involves Yankee firsts in 2012. Choose the player you feel will attain each first.
      3. In the third section, you'll see a Yankee player and a target amount for a particular stat. Simply pick whether the actual value for that stat will be over or under that target.
        • If the target stat is reached exactly, the choice of Over will win.
        • Note: The stats for each player are only stats compiled as a Yankee, so if you feel that a player will not remain a Yankee all year, keep that in mind when predicting.
      4. In the next three sections there will be a few questions about the Yankees in general. Answer those questions in the space provided.
      5. At the end are several tiebreaker questions that should be filled out and will only be used if there is a tie for first place. If players are still tied after the tiebreaker questions, the winner will be determined based on whose responses are as closest to the correct answers.
      6. Many of the questions ask you to enter the name of a player. To make the lives of the contest moderators much, much easier, please avoid nicknames and misspellings, typing the first and last name of the player exactly as it would appear on baseball-reference.com (except please leave out accents on vowels). Here are the correct spellings of a few commonly entered, commonly misspelled players:
        • Alex Rodriguez (not ARod, A-Rod, etc.)
        • Mark Teixeira (not Tex or any of the many mangled variations)
        • CC Sabathia (not CC, Sabbathia, etc.)
    4. The deadline for entry is midnight Eastern time on the night of Friday, March 16, 2012.
    5. Please feel free to direct any questions about the contest itself to JDPNYY on NYYFans.com.
    6. Technical questions about this web site can be directed to sweet_lou_14 on NYYFans.com.

    You must use your exact NYYFans.com User Name and if you have signed up for any past Contests you must use the same password.

    Write down your password.
    Please write down your password.
    I implore you to write down your password.
    After you write down your password, put it in a safe place, perhaps in a safety deposit box or something.
    If you are signing up for the first time, please pick a password other than your NYYFans.com password.

    Don't let that confuse you... You MUST use your exact User Name for the contest... (just choose a different password... then write down the password and put it in a safe place).

    I'm frantic... Jeter Ceremony Date - when will this be announced????


    Thank goodness we now know.

    Question 3.4 Martin: Caught Stealing %

    I assume that's his "runners thrown out" performance? (and not how many times he personally gets caught stealing)

    But there can only be one winner.



    I'm (will be) in....win or lose. Most likely the latter.
    If they ask who was our star, give them 25 names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.
