It's time for the Second Annual Joy of Sox Prediction Contest -- where ten seconds of thought can win you wonderful prizes.
As before, email me with your guess of the Red Sox's record. In case of a tie, also tell me who will have a lower ERA, Schilling or Johnson, and by how much. Example: If you think Schilling's ERA will be 40 points lower than Johnson's, write in: Schilling -40. If you think Schilling's ERA will be 15 points high than Johnson's, write in: Johnson -15.
Deadline is Noon on Sunday, April 3. All entries will be posted shortly thereafter.
Prize: The winner receives a copy of "Joy of Sox" -- the imaginatively-titled collection of posts from this blog from October 16, 2003 to October 31, 2004. I put this book together mostly for myself, although I'll be selling it through Cafe Press as well, so if you're an insane person snapping up everything associated with the 2004 Red Sox (like me), you may want to check it out.
Also: The winner will receive a CD-R with the WEEI broadcasts of ALCS 3-4-5-6-7 and WS 1-2-3-4 and several video/highlight compilations (including some home video from the upper deck of the final out in Game 4 in St. Louis).
