Traded Sets Baseball Challenge: Week 5

Changing it up with a new contest this week.

All you need to do to win is pick ONE PLAYER who will have the most RBI on Saturday May 8th.

To enter, add a comment below with the name of a single player. Whoever picks the player with the most RBI on that day wins some free cards. If you are the winner AND your player has at least 8 RBI, you also win the jackpot.


1) I'm talking about only MLB players here.
2) Make sure your guess isn't repeating someone else's.
3) Your first post only counts. No changing.
4) The first game your guy appears in on May 8th is what counts. If there's a double header and he plays both games, only the first one counts. (OK wise guy, I mean any game starting on May 8th, not a late game from May 7th that ends after midnight.)
5) Ties are decided by the earlier poster. In other words, if two guys hit 7 RBI, whoever picked their guy earlier wins.

Here is the jackpot:

Here's what's in the jackpot:
  • 1988 Score Rookies & Traded set
  • Two packs 2009 Topps Heritage baseball
  • Six packs 2009 Upper Deck Series 1 baseball
  • Five packs 2008 Topps Series 1 baseball
  • NEW: Four more packs of 2008 Topps Series 1 baseball

  3. Andre Ethier is going to go ballistic on Saturday. L.A.'s playing the Giants.

  4. mark teixiera. just because it will help my primary fantasy team.

  5. Chipper Jones. He's on my fantasy teams, I need him to produce.

  6. David Wright. I can dream, can't I?

  7. Ouch, Dave. Manny's not gonna win it, I guess.

  8. Yup! - I cannot beleive I took Manny. Just a case of Manny being Barry!

  9. you gotta be kidding me!!!! Red sox explode for 12 runs-4 of them from bay- and the contest doesnt start till tomorrow? (deep sigh) Brings a tear to my eye. oh well, hopefully he has similar production tomorrow.

  10. Contest starts Saturday actually

  11. ah, I see. I just saw May 8th, so I assumed it was today. Silly me.

  12. Oh yeah, I screwed that up nicely.

    I'm going to post a correction in a new post--but nobody has to do anything to keep the contest going.
