I’m giving away MLB Stuff every week on this blog to reward my readers.
I’ve given away a Matt Wieters shirt to Joey Orr,
a Brandon Phillips shirt to Matt Jackson,
a Dustin Pedroia shirt to Stephen D,
a Phillies shirt to Connor,
a Dodgers shirt to Matt Jackson,
a Ryan Zimmerman shirt to Big Brown Fox
a Nick Markakis shirt to NYBisons,
and this CC Sabathia shirt to Teen Reds Fan.
This week, I gave readers a chance to pick this shirt, and then the player.
Here’s how you win the shirt:
I post blog entries every day. All you have to do is leave a comment or retweet my blog link on twitter.
So, again, to enter:
1) Leave a comment.
You can enter up to seven times per week simply by leaving a comment. Non-pertinent, spam, or inappropriate comments will not be accepted. If you comment multiple times on the same blog entry, it still counts as one entry. For example, if you commented on three different blog posts from this week, you’d have three entries. If you’d comment three times on the same blog posting, it would could as one.
2) Retweet (RT) my posts on Twitter
You can find me on twitter under 333greystreet. Simply retweet my daily posts of my blog link and I’ll count that as an entry. My blog is connected to my twitter so that I automatically tweet once I post a new entry. Each day, I’ll search who’s retweeted me and enter those users into a hat along with the commenters. By the way, you do not need to retweet my every tweet, only the tweets that announce a new blog post and url. For example, if I tweeted, ‘I’m going to bed,’ and you retweeted it, it wouldn’t count as an entry, only RT with blog links count.
At the end of the week on Sunday, I’ll have Olivia, Amy or myself choose a name from a hat and announce the winner.
So, what’s everyone think of the Mets’ chances in 2012. In my NL East preview, I buried the Mets in last place and predicted them to lose 100 games. By the way, Spring Training isn’t really a good indicator of how a team will do in the regular season due to the amount of minor league players involved, players just getting their work in, regardless if they’re struggling, etc… but the Mets are 3-11 this spring – worst in the MLB.
As far as David Wright in 2012, things aren’t getting underway well for him. He has a torn abdominal muscle and may not be ready for opening day. Hopefully for Wright, he can recover without surgery. Ryan Zimmerman had surgery for a torn abdominal muscle last year and missed half of the season.
How do you think the Mets will fare in 2012? How about David Wright? Will the moved in fences at Citi Field help him? He hit 30 homers in 2007 and 33 in 2008 – while only hitting 14 last year and posting a career worst .771 OPS and .254 average.
On another note, there’s only 17 more days until Opening Day. And it’s been in the 70’s for about a week here in PA with highs forecast at about 80 for the next three days. Olivia and I are loving this. We can sit on our deck at 7:30 PM and enjoy the birds singing and the sunset behind us.
There’s just one thing missing – baseball games. Soon we’ll be listening to the crack of the bat. Almost there…
