TCR Free Agent Frenzy Contest

Once again, it's time for the TCR Free Agent Frenzy, which really is the MLB Free Agent Frenzy and we just piggyback off of it. This year's winner will likely receive the Chicago Cubs Legends DVD Set although I might switch it up on you to something of equivalent value. Whatever it is, it'll definitely be Cubs related and something any true Cubs fans would want. So just follow their contest procedure and post your guesses in the comments but with one minor change. They have Joe Torre as the final option, we're going to switch that to Kosuke Fukodome for our contest since Torre has all but agreed to go to the Dodgers. Also, if you want to choose retire for someone like Bonds, go right ahead. Please ONLY use the comments for your contest entries, save the rumor mill for the previous thread if you can. Finally, please submit your picks in the same order that they appear in the MLB.com contest, but of course switching Torre for Fukodome. My picks after the jump...

michaelweaselo,

maybe you were kidding around since you basically just counted upwards, but you have 2 #10's and no #15.

resubmit it if you wish and I'll delete that one...

lot of Fukodome to Cubs love for a rumor that hasn't even happened yet. I imagine you all were just swayed by my immense influence.

Does that mean that Bonds will be playing for the Chicago Wolves?

Sorry if I missed a previous posting but I tried searching the archive, but at the beginning of the year we had a contest based on predicting the cubs and players seasons- stuff like W/L, team leaders in HR, W, , cubs all-stars, etc. Were the results ever published?

it does make it easier for me to input into a spreadsheet if they're all in the same order.

I'm not Rob... but yes, you could. Though by the time you entered everything in it may not be any faster.

Rob, I'll be submitting my entry in .gif format. Enjoy.

dave, hmm? doesn’t ring a bell. you new here?

Yup... a little about me. I am a conservative Republican, who at times admits he has fascist tendencies. I think men are vastly superior to women, white people can't be good wide receivers, and that Sammy Sosa was the greatest baseball player to ever play the game. And I think that statistical analysis is the most overrated tool ever used to look at baseball players. Give me dave-ball, not money ball.

Looking forward to getting to know everybody!

re 39

I think this is the beginning of a long friendship.

You like nachos?

how come Chad and Crunch never enter our contests?

you too cool to play with us?

They're afraid their cred will take a hit if they finish last in a contest.

"how come Chad and Crunch never enter our contests?"

i just rarely get into formalized guessing contests. i'm not gonna tear them down as useless...they're fun. it just doesnt interest me much.

and about "my cred"...i think its established (good or bad) whether i enter a contest or not.

They’re afraid their cred will take a hit if they finish last in a contest.

Chad has cred?

And yes Chad... I like nachos. We should hang out sometime and watch home videos of Ronald Reagan speeches.

I don't think you would like my answer. Let's just say, I am not interested. Fair 'nuff?

I don't like most of your answers Chad, why would this be any different?

the contests are mostly mindless fun, I don't recall anyone ever using them to rate folks around here about their baseball acumen.

We all know it's just a guessing game...

That's not the case Rob. I'm just not interested. Let's just leave it at that. I am not about to rain on anyone's parade over this.

Chad was touched inappopriately by a contest when he was young I guess. :)

And I'm not new here....just a lurker:-)

Geoff,

Please re-read the post and resubmite your answers. We modified the contest and are replacing Torre with Fukodome.

Thanks. I'll just delete your old entry if you submit another one.

Fukodome? I thought they closed that place down!

My bad...I definitely saw that I was supposed to do that....but didn't.
