    John, you deserve better than this for a turnout. I realize that, like many of your Yankee friends here do. Thanks for keeping this contest going for those of us that appreciate your doings. This is the most fun around. Fools all for not taking the time to partake in this. They know not what they miss.

    Maybe they just realize that a Red Sox fan could win this baby once again!

    Thanks to all who entered the contest.


    My hope it that the winner correctly guessed that the Yankees would win the World Series this year.

    Thanks for keeping the contest open late. As usual, I submitted this at the last minute. I think because I knew how clueless I was with all of the latest twists & turns for the Yanks, something I was reminded of yesterday when I went to see them play (I'd like this kid Pirela on the team to hit triples, please ). I didn't have the heart (or the time) to review my possibly ridiculous guesses and have decided that's a good thing. Still glad I made the effort. It's a great contest!

    I hope so, too, even though that means I wouldn't be the winner!

    With 2 people getting their entries in at the wire... We end up with 53 entries.

    Some notes:

    3 people think Eric Chavez will be traded to the Yankees before opening day.

    18 people think Matt Diaz will make the team, oh, sorry, he was sent down late yesterday.

    Mixed feelings on the MessMan. 25 think Melky will make the team, 28 say he won't.

    Performance Over/Unders? There are only 3 categories (out of 88) that all 53 people agree on:
    1) We all agree that Curtdog will get less than 42 HRs (the contest was written before he got hurt)
    2) No one thinks CC will be called upon to get a Save.
    3) No one thinks Phil Hughsie will get 2 Saves.
    The rest all caused a difference of opinion.
    I'm surprised so many thought MarkyT would get 500 at bats. Him being out a month or two (again announced after the contest was written), I went with all the unders for our fast fading expense.

    And lastly, we clearly have a few liars in the Gimme Question section. You know who you are.

    UGH...

    My last-minute technique did not work this time. I went to print out a spring training roster to see how everyone was doing before I made my picks.... got sidetracked by a phone call, and missed the deadline.

    Oh well. Good luck to everyone who entered.

    Darn. No monteraler and Tifosi in the contest this year. I always figured with those two in the contest I was guaranteed to not finish worse than 3rd to last.

    I have already known that I won't do well. Forget that the Yankees still have an option on Boesch and now Tex won't come back until June...

    Is there any way you can extend the deadline?

    I just assumed we had more time, closer to opening day, so I was waiting to submit my sheet.

    Admittedly I did not follow the updates in this thread, so if it has to stay locked I understand, its my fault.

    We can't change the deadline this year, but next year the deadline is going to be September 1st.

    I don't understand why every year people make the same requests about not knowing when the deadline is.

    Don't they know you're supposed to enter your picks right away, promise yourself you'll go back and edit them closer to the deadline, forget to do that and wonder why your picks are so bad later on?

    LOL - that's the strategy I've used for years. This year, I waited too long and LITERALLY got in with like 2 minutes to spare. However, I had to TBD a few free form questions just to ensure I got my entry in. When I went back to edit/update, I was out of time. So unless there are rookies named "TBD" that come in and dominate, I'm thinking I'm getting none of those questions right.
