1st Official Let's Go Bucs Contest Winner is....

The Pirates were able to defeat the Arizona Diamondbacks in Arizona today which means they took the series winning 2 of the 3 games.  After watching the first game, I had concerns that Arizona was going to just run over the Pirates and completely embarrass the majors worse offense.  Despite not scoring a lot of runs though, the Pirates bullpen has been extremely good ranking in the top half of all baseball.

Little know fact, not since the 1964 Pirates has a team not allowed or scored more than 5 runs in a game through their first 10 games to start the season.  Go Bucs!

Since the Pirates won the series, somebody is getting free cards which include a Trevor Bauer rookie, Dan Haren parallel, and Curt Schilling jersey.  There were a lot less participants for this round than the Dodgers and Giants entries.  This time around only 9 people said Let's Go Bucs prior to the D'backs series after the Giants series had started.

I entered the entries into Random.org
Dan Wilson is a D'backs fan so he gets entered twice
 I randomized it 3 times because it's a 3 game series
 2nd time around

Our winner is Brian from Play at the Plate

 These cards above will be going out to Brian later this week.



Now...who wants to root for the Bucs to win a 2012 Topps Yadier Molina Black Parallel numbered 49/61?
It's easy to try and win it.  Cheer on the Pirates this weekend as they host the 2011 World Series Champions St. Louis Cardinals.  I'm really hoping they can gain some ground in the standings by taking 2 of 3 from the Cards.  If you want the card above along with some other random goodies.  Root for the Pirates by leaving a comment below saying:
Let's Go Bucs!!!!! Beat the Cardinals!

Now...Time to show off some more cards I've recently purchased
 My very first Jason Bay printing plate
Jason Bay Triple Threads AUTO/Jersey Rising Stars numbered 29/225

    1. well since you brought it up, there is the off chance that both Upton and Young could be headed to the DL.
