March 15, 2014 - John Mehno
The annual Guess How Many Games The Pirates Will Win contest will begin next week.
We'll open for entries on Thursday, March 20 at 3 p.m. The date is somewhat random; the time reflects the fact that I don't like to stir before noon unless it's absolutely necessary.
You know the drill by now: You need two numbers. The first is your guess of how many games the Pirates will win. (They won 94 last year). The second number is the tiebreaker, the number of home runs they'll hit over the 162-game season. (Last year's total was 161).
Think about it. Then check back next week for instructions on how to enter.
As always, the prize is a box of leftover Pirates stuff.
This advance notice gives you a chance to run all the statistics through the computer, and to notify your family members and friends that the contest is about to begin.
It doesn't cost anything to enter, so there's no excuse not to play.
