Alright, I'm all moved in, getting unpacked and all that, and I'm ready with some pretty cool ideas to get us through the next (last) boring month of the offseason.

Here's my first idea (inspired by this): we're going to guess a few things about the beginning of the 2007 season. Winner will receive a $50 MLB.com gift certificate, so this is a good opportunity for lurkers to sign up and start posting.

Here are the predictions I'm asking for, which must be in by next Sunday, February 11.

  1. Who will be the first five pitchers to start games for the Cincinnati Reds in 2007? Not the first five games, because who knows if they'll use a fifth starter right off the bat with all the off days, the first five pitchers. (One point for each pitcher)
  2. Who will record the first save for the Reds in 2007? (one point)
  3. Predict your opening day lineup 1-8. (one point for each correct slot)
  4. Name the final reliever to make the team. (one point)
In case of a tie, post your predicted April record for the Reds (25 games in April, closest prediction wins tie breaker).

Good luck!
