Win a free shirt by the participating in our #yinzerguess contest. Correctly predict a player and the inning that he will hit a homerun. This is for the 1st homerun for the Pirates. So if Pedro hits 1 in the first inning, the contest is over. The winner gets a free shirt from our store. If more than 1 person correctly guesses the player and the inning that the player hits the home run, the person that tweets it first will win. Obviously, this is only for Pirates games and only Pirates' players can be guessed. All tweets must be tweeted before the first pitch.
Must use hashtag #yinzerguess
Example Tweet: Alvarez in the 3rd #yinzerguess
Congrats to @laclips for winning 6/19, 6/20 round is open for predictions

Round 1 had 80 people vote, and the top 4 write-ins in each category moved on to round 2. There were a couple categories where there was a top 3.
Round 2 had 96 people vote. I set my expectations a little low for this first attempt. 96 people isn't bad, but we will do better next time. I am planning on a new contest starting week 1 of the Steelers' season.
So the winners for each category.

Yeah, only live TV, nothin big lol. Royals catcher Humberto Quintero mocks pitcher, Bruce Chen, during an interview on Fox during the game Saturday night. The announcers tried to play it off during the live feed, but they never changed camera shots haha. Leave links to stories about this in the comments section. I haven't found anything.

Now although Mike Wallace might read this title and automatically agree that the Steelers should be kissing his ass, I will specify and say it is HIM that needs to be sucking up. I think we can all agree- Mike Wallace is a quick guy. He ran his 40 at the combine at a 4.28 which is one of the fastest in recorded history. And yes, I will agree- for me at least- an advantage of Wallace is that he has to be double covered and it opens other players up, but at this point he's comical. To be specific Larry Fitzgerald is making 120 million dollars over an eight period year. I will be the first person to admit Larry deserves the money- the guy is a beast. Does Wallace deserve the money? Absolutely not. Shoot 30 million his way over six years or so and you'll be more accurate. Mike- you aren't that good. Did you see your playoff appearance in Denver? You dropped enough passes your boy Larry would have been sure to catch. Reality check bud, your fast but you don't have great hands. Finally. My most annoying point in this blog piece. I think if I were demanding an awful lot of money I would show up to OTA's to show how serious I was. First of all- Mike you have a new offensive coordinator who goes by the name of Todd Haley and from what I have heard he's a pretty serious guy. Something tells me he won't take partying in Vegas as an excuse. Also Mike you have a brand new playbook to learn. I would be thinking that's more important than alcohol and strippers but what do I know. And most important. Don't you think the Rooneys are aware of where your priories are or well aren't? And do you really think they find your diva attitude funny?! You're kind of an idiot. And to close. Mike- your boy Ike isn't kidding- football doesn't need you and neither do the Steelers
