Spot the Sig - 9th Inning

We are down to the 9th and final inning of the 2011 edition of Spot the Sig!.  I sincerely hope that everyone has enjoyed the competition.  I apologize that the Autos were not quite as challenging as years past.  I think I snuck in a few too many of the easy ones this time around, but I also believe the competition level has risen since the first STS! clear back in those innocent days of 2008-2009. 
Going into the 9th inning, Plaschzke thy Sweater is Argyle has a two run lead but there are at least six competitors that could take the game.  Anybody that has the bases loaded has a shot, unfortunately Card Buzz - one of the All-Time Great STS! participants and reigning champ cannot win this game despite being in 3rd place and having 2 runs accross.  Buzz simply doesn't have enough runners aboard to claim a victory with one big hit.
The Auto is open to anyone, even if you cannot win the 2011 STS!, you can still be a spoiler.
Here it is - Good Luck to all 
This is the last inning and there is no bonus competition.  The Final Auto is either a Walk-off Hit or a Final Out.
Thanks to all the participants.  According to my records we had 19 teams enter this years STS! which is a new high and I am very happy about that.  I hope that the game gave everyone a taste of baseball duirng the course of a rather long winter and has everybody ready for the upcoming real Major League season.

Paul Blair?

Gosh, it looks like Pavel Bure, but I don't remember his signature looking like that. But that's my guess.

Jim said...

I'll guess Paul Byrd . . . although I doubt he actually has an autograph cards.

Just wanted to throw that out there since this is the first time in forever I've remembered to play.

The Dimwit said...

Dang it Laurens, as soon as I figure it out and get back to the page, you posted the answer... Aaron BLEEPIN' Boone...

mmmrhubarb said...

oh, night owl already guessed that. And it DOESN'T look like his auto.

night owl said...

Aaron's signature sucks ...
