Spot The Sig!- 3rd Inning

It's time for this weeks Spot the Sig! We are up to the 3rd inning, and here is the Auto:


Yeah this weeks slop is a Double - All runners score.

And for the bonus we are turning back the clock with a straight trivia question. We are going back to 1993.

To get the bonus name any one of the top Three pitchers in either league for Number of Pitches Thown during the season.

Each team is only allowed one guess, and only the first person to guess each player will get the bonus.

I did some quick searches and didn't find this nugget out on the net - so either take a guess, or start looking through those old stat manuals. If you get any one of the six pitchers in this group you will get a single all runners advance a base.

The current STS! standings going into the 3rd inning:

PTBNL
- repsresentin those Fightin Phillies - 5 Runs - Man on 2nd.
Night Owl - Dodgers - 1 Run in men on 2nd and 3rd
Stats on the Back - Mets - 1 Run in - Man on 3rd
Cardboard Junkie - Braves - 1 Run in - Men on First and 2nd
Cardboard Addiction - Bosox - Man on First
A Cardboard Problem - Yankees - On Deck
Covered in Wrappers - Cardinals - On Deck
Nachos Grande - Reds - On Deck

Schmidt is correct!

Tough one - Maybe should have been a triple but I left a portion of the card beyond the sticker on as a hint to the card type. Perhaps that helped Laurens.

Laurens let me know what team you would like to represent. I know I have seen your comments out there, but not sure that you have a blog I can reference.

I will have info up on the bonus later.

Laurens said...
