9th Annual Almost the Easiest World Series Contest on the Web - Winners!!!

My apologies for the delay in getting the Championship post up, it's been a busy week.  But man what a great series and holy moly what a great game 7.  Well if your a Nationals fan, and it just so happens that our Grand Prize winner is!  One man picked the Nationals to win it all, so all the tie breaks are moot, unless those of you who picked the Astros want to figure out who came closest.

Anyway the correct prediction and tie breaks would have been

Nationals over the Astros, in 7, 22 Home Runs!  And other than missing the opponent Kirk came damn close to a correct prediction to the outcome.

CaptKirk42 - Nats over Twins 7 games 24 HRs

Vrooomed - Astros over Braves, in 6, 18 HRs

Sportzcommish - Astros over Dodgers in 6 with 20 homers between them.

RAZ - Astros over Dodgers, 7 games, 21 HRs.

Ben Morris - Astros over Brave, in 7, 18 HRs

Fuji -  Astros over Dodgers, in 6, 17 HRs

Matt - Astros over Dodgers, 5 games, 12 HRs - PIMP

FiresNBeers - Astros over Braves, in 6, 15 HRs

KMack - Astros over Dodgers in 5 games. 13 HR's.

Scribbled Ink - Astros over Dodgers in 6, 30 HRs

jlcre2003 - Astros over Dodgers in 7, 14 HRs

Nachos Grande - Astros over Dodgers, again. 7 Games, 28 HRs

Ray - Astros over dodgers in 6, 15

defgav - Astros sweep Dodgers, 10 HRs

It's clear from the entries that the favorites to make it to the end were the Astro and Dodgers.  Had the Astros won RAZ would have taken home the prize.  Besides getting a full set of 1990 Classic, Kirk will also get a nice selection of Nationals cards I can find laying around.

But let's not forget that if you remembered to submit an entry you've still got a shot at the door prize which was more Classic cards and a nice stack of cards from your favorite team.  As in previous contests I added all the names of those who entered, people that promoted the contest and remembered to tell me get an extra entry, into a list randomizer over at and then randomized the list 3 times.  Let's see who won.

Dion who writes Dion'sIPAutosOnly blog, an Angels fan that will get a nice stack of Angels as well as the complete 1990 Classic Travel set.  I'll be sending out emails to both our winners later to get make sure I have current address for both of them and hopefully get prizes out in the next couple days.

Thanks again to everyone who played this year.  Don't forget I'll have my 10th Annual, yep it's a big one, Super Bowl contest later this year!!  Also I've got some plans for the blog, not big plans, but plans to get back to blogging on a more regular basis, so stay tuned.

Again congrats to the winners!!!
