SoSG Contest: First May Win


After a so-so April, May has been completely dead for the Dodgers. Since actually watching the games is getting kind of tedious, we thought we'd spice things up with a little contest.

The rules are simple: Predict which date the Dodgers will get their first May win.

Leave a comment with your prediction in THIS THREAD. One date per person. First one to claim a date gets it. The winner will get something fabulous* from the SoSG Prize Closet.

Entries close at first pitch tonight. If no one claims May 7th, and the Dodgers lose tonight, entries will reopen through first pitch tomorrow (and so on). May 7th has been claimed!

Claimed Dates
May 7th: Paul
May 8th: Mr. F
May 10th: EricoPerico
May 11th: QuadSevens
May 12th: Cliff Beefpile
May 15th: Dusty Baker's Toothpick
May 27th: BJ Killeen
June 1: Gagne's Lucky Glasses


*Fabulousness may vary.

May 7th!

Paul said...

I am a true believer. Wait is it raining down there?

MR.F said...

Tomorrow!

EricoPerico said...

May 10th I guess, but I'm counting on a win today. Go Doyers!

MR.F said...

I actually was going to say today, but Paul beat me to it. Also, tomorrow = May 8, in case I need to clear that formality.

EricoPerico said...

Same here, Mr. F. Then you edged me out with your prediction for a win tomorrow. I'll happily forgo my prize rather than see the Dodgers lose 7 straight.

QuadSevens said...

May 9th! Not losing is as good as a win right?






I'll take May 11th.

karina said...

may 7th! i don't want a prize, i wanna a win!

Jesse Vela said...

I have a feeling that tonight is the night, so May 7th.

May 8th

Hideo Nomo said...

GLG: Mr. F has May 8th.

MR.F said...

We are all optimists! At least before the game starts.

Hideo Nomo said...

Claimed:
May 7th, 8th, 10th, 11th.

MR.F said...

Elian Herrera is back in the bigs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hideo Nomo said...

Jesse: I like your optimism, but May 7th has been claimed. If you want to win a prize, at the expense of the Dodgers' dignity, you have to pick another date.

Steve Sax said...

May 16: the off-day (which is effectively a "win")

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

@MR F, Ellian Herrera was called up? Then, I'll take May 15th

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Addendum:

Mattingly gets fired on May 14th,

Dodgers win on May 15th.

Steve Sax said...

@Gnomeo: nice call on the Spider-Man panel, btw (though Peter Parker's contorted torso is inhuman)

Hideo Nomo said...

It's the tiny legs and skinny jeans that are disturbing to me.

BJ Killeen said...

Since all the good dates are taken, May 27. But Scott has yet to receive his goodies from winning the poster contest!!

Orel said...

I'll check with Delino, BJ.

MR.F said...

Also, I don't really get the comic choice. Aunt May is.... dead?

BJ Killeen said...

Thanks Big O

Steve Sax said...

@mr f: read the first line of Nomo's post

MR.F said...

Oh, duh.

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

June 1st

I'll take the 12th. Makes sense...I'll be there on the 11th.

Steve Sax said...

Can I pick up May 14?
