Enter the Contest, Win a Prize

March 31, 2009 - John Mehno

We did this last year with a degree of success, so it's back again.

Blog readers are invited to take a guess at how many games the Pirates will win this season. There are 162 games on the schedule and here are the Pirates' records in last eight seasons:

*2008: 67-95

*2007: 68-94

*2006: 67-95

*2005: 67-95

*2004: 72-89

*2003: 75-87

*2002: 72-89

*2001: 62-100

Here's how it works: E-mail your prediction to me at: You are predicting the number of games the Pirates will win in the 2009 regular season. In case of duplicate entries, the earliest entry wins. Only e-mailed entries are eligible. Do NOT post your entry in the blog's comments section.

The winner will receive a bunch of leftover Pirates promotional stuff, which will be mailed to you. There are no guarantees on what might be included. It depends on what I can find and whatever fits in the box. The regular season ends on Sunday, Oct. 4, and the winner's prize will be mailed soon after that date. The winner's name will be announced in the blog after the Pirates' last game is concluded.

The deadline for entries is 4 p.m. Monday, April 6. Please, just one entry per person. Good luck.
