Traded Sets Baseball Challenge: Week 7

OK, time for something a little different this week.

All you need to do to win is guess which team will score the most runs in their game on Saturday May 23rd.

Check right here for a list of games and pitching matchups.

  • Put your guess in a comment on this post.
  • Once a team has been guessed, nobody else can guess the same team.
  • Only the regularly-scheduled games for Sat May 23rd count. Games added from earlier postponements do not count.
  • If a game gets suspended, it's my discretion whether to wait for it to be completed or made up.
  • Ties are broken by the earlier time of the comment.
  • Your guess must be made before all the games start on Saturday, even if the team you're picking hasn't started playing yet.
If you are the winner and your team scores 16 runs or more, you also win the jackpot. (This has happened 3 times so far this season already.)

Here's what's in the jackpot:
  • 1988 Score Rookies & Traded set
  • 2 packs 2009 Topps Heritage baseball
  • 6 packs 2009 Upper Deck Series 1 baseball
  • 9 packs 2008 Topps Series 1 baseball
  • 4 more packs of 2008 Topps Series 1 baseball
  • 3 packs of 2009 Upper Deck Artifacts
  • NEW 4 bonus insert T-205 design packs from Target Topps 2008 Series 1 Baseball blasters

All the teams are playing this Saturday, and with the exception of Cubs/Padres, all teams are playing an interleague matchup!


  1. I'm taking the Rays.

    Again, post the team you think will score the most runs.

  2. I'll go with the dreaded Cubs.

  3. I'll take My Hometown Florida Marlins on my birthday!

    Will be at the game, so I hope it comes true!


  4. I pick late and I get the Cardinals?

    Gee, thanks guys. Opposing pitcher:
    Hochevar (0-1, 16.88 ERA)
