The first person that predicts the right date, when KW will make a major trade. I will give them 2 free tickets to the Sox vs Tigers game on Sept 17th.

Good luck to everyone.

If the Mods need me to do anything about this contest.. Let me know.

The predictions will end in 48 hours from now.

I love this idea and thank you for doing it .. I'll take the 17th since my first choice was taken .. maybe you should use time of day and then more people could play .. also, i have season tickets but i love this idea so i had to play .. if i win please give it to the next fan .. if it is a problem that i don't really want the tickets then just cancel my choice .. anyway .. good show :)

If others want to do time of the day.. Than we can do that.. I thought this way there wouldn't be no arguments of who wins..

If the Sox were to get Fielder, Dunn, Oswalt, Haren, Lilly, LaRoche or any star quality player.

Good luck with this one. With no clear cut definition of "major trade," you're going to get killed by everyone who "loses." I know you listed some players who could be considered as being part of a "major trade," but there is still too much subjectivity in that. Was getting Geoff Blum a "major trade" in 2005 at the time it happened?

I can see your point.. What i mean by a major trade is someone who is traded here to be our 5th starter, RF, LR or DH.

If a back up player is the only trade that KW makes. than the person who predicts that date of the trade, will win the tickets..

Also if KW was to pick up Dye, Pedro, and Washburn. What ever date they're sign will go to the person who predicted that day..

If that happens (and it's a big "if"), it would be after July 31st.

So people who aren't voting anymore because all of the through July 31st are taken should come back in and pick some dates in August.:redface:

Bummer, I'm pretty sure I missed the dates! But on the issue of defining major trade, would it be possible to have a "board calls" kind of format? Kind of like in poker and "table calls?" I'm pretty sure the majority would figure it out. Cool idea BTW thanks Rockabilly

A few days left until the trading deadline. If the Sox don't make any trades, then I decided to end this contest on Aug 1st.

The new contest will be whoever is the first person to predict or come closest(without going over) to the final score on Aug 1st. I believe Floyd is pitching on sunday. The deadline for the contest is at 1pm on sunday

hopefully the Sox will make a huge trade.


So tell me your final scores for sundays game. Just in case the Sox don't make a trade by the deadline

I assume with these blowouts that Bobby is going to get an inning of work in the 9th...my guess assumed Floyd would throw 8 scoreless
