I suggest cut and pasting when providing the lineups. I will put my guess in the first comment you have an idea of the format.
Looking at the rosters we have only two open spots. If Hawksworth and Belisario were not starting out the season on the DL and Suspended list we would probably have 24 locks. Last year we had 21 locks, but injuries quickly made this a wide open contest with Padilla being the first to go down. Who will tweak something this spring? Remember this is the opening day roster, so even though Ivan DeJesus did not stick around long he made the opening day roster and thus the victory to those who went out on the ledge. You can play it safe and probably tie with ten others or you can shoot the moon and dance in the glory of mayhem. You make the call.
The winner of this contest will be announced on opening day. The choice of prize will be:
1. Two Free Tickets to First TBLA Game Night
2. Two Beers on TBLA Game Night
