We Have a Winner

October 4, 2009 - John Mehno

The Pirates wrapped up the season with a 6-0 loss in Cincinnati, which gave them a final record of 62-99 and made a winner of Lisa Lynch.

Her entry was the first to be received in the annual "Guess How Many Games The Pirates Will Win" contest. She will soon be receiving a big box of leftover Pirates promotional stuff.

She was the only person to project 62 wins, and hers was the low guess. The 60s were lightly selected as most guesses were in the 70 to 82 range. Whether it was dumb luck or skill, LIsa nailed it. She should now get busy clearing shelf and closet space for her Pirates swag. And doesn't any home look nicer with bobbleheads bobbling?

Thanks to everyone who entered, and hope you'll give it another shot next spring.

BTW, honorable mention to Alan Bellomo, who came close. Again. No prize, but at least some blog recognition, Alan.

I am looking for:
