Contest: Predict the Orioles' 2013 Opening Day 25-Man Roster

Contest: Predict the Orioles' 2013 Opening Day 25-Man Roster

PostPost #1 by Jordan Tuwiner » December 20th, 2012, 2:05 am

This is all for bragging rights. Contests like these are hilarious to look back on. In the future we'll have more contests here with some great Orioles prizes.

Rules:
- FA is an acceptable answer
- Simply list the 12 pitchers you think will make the roster. If you list a pitcher as a SP and he makes the roster as a RP, it still counts.
- If you list Matt Wieters as your catcher and he ends up on the DL opening day you don't get the point.
- You must submit your entry by next Tuesday.

Here's a template you can use:

This is a fun topic, but I think we should revisit it again about February 1st. I honestly believe there will be some trades that will subtract some of the pitching and adjust the position players.

I wanted it to be far away from ST so it wasn't as easy and also to see how much things change by then.

On February 1st, perhaps we'll have a contest to predict the opening day lineup.

I get the impression that this season's lineup will be constantly evolving.
