Predict the Degree of Futility, Win a Prize!
Completely unrelated to my newfound interest in Insurance is that the Mockingbird now has a $50 mlb.com gift certificate to give away. Keeping with the theme of home runs, but altering it more suitably for the Jays to the total @#$@#$!! lack thereof, (49 in three months = 27th in the league) here’s what we’re going to do:
Guess the longest home run drought, in innings, for the next three series. Starting on Tuesday, the Jays face Cincinnati (2nd in the majors with 98 HR allowed), Atlanta, and Seattle. Whoever comes the closest to predicting the longest powerless stretch between then and their Thursday day off wins the fifty. You can send me an email if you don’t want to get scooped/squeezed, or just drop your guess in the comments.
Come to think of it, I could use a new hat. My guess is a cool 81 innings…
