I don't mean to complain, but the PTC scoreboard shows I have 3 correct picks. I thought I had 5, so I waded through all of Daver's old posts as well as my own. It turn out I was right.

4/5 Buehrle
4/13 Colon
4/16 Thomas
4/17 Lee
4/21 Lee

I have five correct. I'm pretty sure that 4/16 and 4/21 were the days I didn't get credit for. Why didn't I get credit? The times on my posts are showing Eastern Time. The 4/16 Thomas pick was at 7:59 which was six minutes before the 8:05 PM ET start, and the 4/21 post shows 1:21 PM which was before the 2:05 PM ET start. As you see, I got the picks in on time, so why didn't they count?

It's probably just a backup in updating the scoreboard. It isn't done every day...

BTW, if anybody else wants to double check their picks, I've written all of them down except for 4/20. I didn't check 4/20 because I wasn't home to make a selection that day.

4/21 Lee
4/19 Jimenez
4/18 Valentin
4/17 Lee
4/16 Thomas
4/15 Rios
4/13 Colon
4/12 Crede
4/11 Loaiza
4/10 Alomar
4/9 Konerko
4/8 Koch
4/6 Jimenez
4/5 Buehrle
4/4 Crede
4/3 Valentin
4/2 Crede
3/31 Crede

BTW, I realize that Daver's job is difficult, and I appreciate the time and effort. I posted the above list so that we can help Daver out as I'm sure it's easy to miss some. Keep up the good work Daver.

Also, if anyone else wants to check the past winners later in the year, you can click on Daver's name, then click to search his posts, and finally click on the posts that say PTC winner. It's a piece of cake.

Two ways that are even simpler is to simply do a search for PTC in the Sox Clubhouse (bottom right hand corner) or look back through the TBGR's. It is listed in every story...

BTW, CLR updates the scoreboard, not Daver...

The board has not been updated yet tonight, so you will have 4. You did get credit for the 16th, that was your thrid correct pick. On the 17th, as you said, Lee was the PTC you took Thomas and Crede as the backup. Where is the problem?

Your right, sorry. For some reason I circled 4/17 on my list, I'm not sure why I did that. I appologize for my mistake. Keep up the good work. I'm sure everyone appreciates your effort.
