As you know, injuries to Jeanmar Gomez and Wandy Rodriguez have resulted in the Pittsburgh Pirates calling up 2011 First Round draft pick Gerrit Cole to make his Major League debut on Tuesday against the San Francisco Giants.
Fortunately for you, the recent trip by Cocktailsfor2 to Indianapolis netted not only a great chat with Tony Sanchez the 2009 First Round pick Tony Sanchez (also due in Pittsburgh soon), but this baseball autographed by Gerrit Cole himself – a baseball that will look great on the mantelpiece next to your Richie Hebner bobblehead, or in your Pirates’ trophy case!
But HOW can I win this fine piece of memorabilia, you ask? Well, it’s as easy as 1-2-3… well, almost. It’s a matter of simple prediction. By you.
In the comments, just predict Gerrit’s final line against the Giants:
Innings pitched (IP) (measured in .1, .2, .0 form – i.e. 5.2, 6.1, 7.0), Hits (H), Strikeouts (K), and Walks (BB).
So, your prediction might read: 6.2 IP, 3 H, 4 K, 2 BB
Got it? IP/H/K/BB
Then as the tiebreaker, guess the number of outs by Ground ball (GB) and Fly ball (FB) – example 6 GB/5 FB
So your final prediction might look like this: 6.2 IP, 3 H, 4 K, 2 BB, 9 GB/4 FB
The person who predicts Cole’s line the closest wins the pictured autographed ball – sent FREE right to your door!
