I'm stealing a page -- no pun -- from J.C. Bradbury and holding my own off-season competition with an e-copy of LaMaritis as the prize.
The contest is simple: predict the 2008 opening day payroll for our very own Rays, the closest wins.
Example of how to post your guesses:
If you must get specific you can go to the first decimal point, but in the end I get the final vote; a la if we have a 35.5 and a 35.7 and somehow it winds up 35.65 I'll go to the one who was the closest, in a pure tie I may send out two copies, we'll see.
Consider this the prediction thread and it's all first come, first guess.
