SoSG Contest: Dodgers Keychain / Home Run Derby

Okay, this Dodgers run (15 losses in our last 20 games) needs a bit more cheer, so no better time than to give away another Dodgers item. Let's spruce up the excitement around Bill Plaschke's favorite event, the Home Run Derby, starring our very own Matt Kemp!

Winner gets the lovely pewter Dodgers keychain pictured above, retail value of $10, which was donated courtesy of wholesalekeychains.com.

Here's the contest rules:

  • Post a comment in this thread predicting the number of HR Matt Kemp will hit, aggregate across all rounds, in today's HR Derby (5p PT start time). (As a point of reference, know that no one from ESPN thinks Kemp will advance very far.).
  • Final guesses must be recorded before 5p PT today (as per the date stamp on your comment.)
  • One guess per person, please. Multiple guesses will disqualify you.
  • If there is a tie (i.e., multiple people with correct answers), we will do a runoff in the following week.

All award decisions are at the discretion of the Sons of Steve Garvey. If this whole contest goes to crap, too, we also reserve the right to kill it altogether and try another method of giving this keychain away.

Make sense? Good luck!

Oh, and one more thing: the Dodgers Scrapbook that Mr. LA Sports Czar won earlier this month? MLASC has bequeathed it to Fred's Brim! FB, send us an email with your address!

I should have indicated Price Is Right rules. Okay, since Kemp is on deck as of this comment post, we'll say that it's Price Is Right Rules.

Go to it, guys!

Eugenio's Streak said...

Do I win?

Fernie V said...

I would of taken 10, but 1, come Kemp, who is he Chris Rock ordering a rib.

Fernie V said...

Hey, KnapS won he guessed 1. One come on Kemp, he must be dating beast mode career killer Rhinna again.

Fernie V said...

1 dollar bet we all laughed at that comment by KnappS. Now predict we are going to win the world series KnappS. One home run, come on, I guess one is the loneliest number.

Hideo Nomo said...

Wait, if it's PiR rules, everyone went over.

But Sax's word is law.

Steve Sax said...

Oh shit, you're right Gnomes. kC, you went over too! Oudidnt win.

Guess we will have to run a new contest for this keychain. Thanks for the catch Gnomes
