CONTEST TIME!!!

Here is how this is going to work. All you have to do is predict what Zack Grienke's ERA is going to be after his second start of this month, which should come on the 10th or 11th. Right now, he is sitting at 1.10. Whoever comes the closest gets to choose between these two prizes.

Sports Illustrated signed by Zack Grienke.


Or a 2009 Topps Heritage black refractor from David Price, #51/60.



The winner gets the pick of the two and the runner-up gets what the winner didn't pick.

So, to enter, leave a comment guessing Zack's ERA after his second start of the month. Then for a tie-breaker, guess how many strikouts he will get in his next two starts. If there is still a tie after that, who ever posted the comment first will be the winner. Once an ERA is picked by a contestant, no one else may pick that number; everyone must have their own number for the ERA. Repeats of the strikeouts are fine. Lastly, list which prize you would choose if you were to win.

For example:
ERA 0.98 (this is for the season)
K's 15 (this is for the two starts)
Zack Grienke, since he has a cool first name that he spells wrong.

Too easy, right? If you have any questions, feel free to email me or ask it in the comments. The cutoff for this contest will be 7:07 ET on Friday, June 5th.

GOOD LUCK!!!

I think he's going to get hit a bit since it'll be his 2nd start vs. Toronto and 3rd against Cleveland.

My guess:
1.51 ERA
14 ks
I'm going for the David Price card.

Great contest. Thanks.
