Right before the free agency period began, I let you guys chime in on your free agent picks. Unfortunately I can't link up to it at the moment as they haven't imported all of our archives quite yet, so you're going to have to trust me on this for now.
Each free agent has signed that was on the list sans Zito, so I added up the totals so far
and here are the current results:
Jackie T 58
Sweet Lou 54
IM Slacker 53
Green Lantern 52
Dallas Green 52
Aaron B 51
Karl H. 49
Rob G. 46
The E-Man 41
Real Neal 41
Bleeding Blue 39
Tom C 26
There's also a fella named Ernie who entered but he had three guys at a 12 confidence level and another two at a 10 confidence level, so I didn't feel his picks should count nor was he that close anyway. Manny picked the Cubs for every free agent as a joke, so don't rag on him too much. Chifan3887 successfully chose Bonds to the Giants at 11, Lee to the Astros at 13, Lugo to the Red Sox at 12, Matsuzaka to the Red Sox at 15 and made his big push with Matthews Jr. to the Angels at 3 and being the only one to correctly guess Maddux to the Padres at 10.
With only Zito left, I believe here are the possibilities.
- If he signs with the Yanks, Vorare will tie with Chifan3887.
- If the Padres surprise everyone, then Junior will win.
- If he signs with the Rangers, WPZ wins.
- If he signs with the Mets or any other team, Chifan3887 is the winner.
And the winner will get a $15 gift certificate at MLB.com (although you could probably talk me into a gift certificate somewhere else baseball related) OR a $15 donation to a Cubs charity. I'll also give you a free post, preferably Cub related but at the very least baseball related.
