This weekend is your last chance to enter the W-L contest.
Prize: A mini Pedro Martinez DVD library.
Where else are you going to get a copy of Pedro's near-no-hitter against the Devil Rays in 2000 (on a night when several Tampa pitchers took target practice at Brian Daubauch's head)? Only here, that's where.
And what about his 17-strikeout performance against the Yankees in 1999, when none of his last 52 pitches were hit into fair territory? Yep. Here.
There are other classics: The Sunday night duel with Fat Billy that Trot Nixon decided with a two-run dong, his nine perfect innings against San Diego for the Expos way back in 1995, those days when he seemingly rolled out of bed and tossed up a 9-4-0-1-14 line...
At least six games will be included. I'm going to try to nail down exactly which ones by Monday. But make no mistake: They will all kick ass.
So email me with your W-L guess (along with the two tiebreakers: Ellsbury's SB and Varitek's OBP) before 9 PM on Sunday. It's free.
As I said before, all entries must be emailed to me. There are two people out there who believe they have entered the contest, but they have not. Any entries that were posted only as a comment will not be considered. I repeat: If you did not send me an email, you are not entered.
Starting on April 7, and continuing on every day during the season the Red Sox do not have a game scheduled, I will emerge from the JoS Cave of Musical Delights for some Off Day Outtakes. This will be similar to last year's "Something Else" series, but this time it's studio demos, alternate versions and unreleased material. I'll take requests, but make no promises.
