Cubs Free Agent Contest Update

In Major League Baseball by dmick892 Comments

The World Series ended and so did time to enter the OV Cubs free agent contest. Since I can no longer do math in spreadsheets, I handed the job off to GW who was politely agreed I'm useless. He did the work and here is who we bet our points on, in order.

I'm not really surprised by the top three. They're the best free agents and we're Cubs fans so we're all hopeful. But Curtis Granderson? I did not see that coming. The same goes for Bronson Arroyo. 

GBTS had the best submission by far.

Gimme 5 each on

Chad Gaudin
Rich Harden
Ted Lilly
Carlos Marmol
Jason Marquis
Henry Blanco
Geovany Soto
Mark DeRosa
Mike Fontenot
Reed Johnson


Still makes me laugh.
