In recognition of the fine posters of this board, past and future, and recent discussions here about the state of the community, I am instituting a contest for the summer of 2009. For the best message board post in each of the months of June, July and August, the three winners will receive a copy of the new release, “Tony La Russa: Man on a Mission”, from Triumph Books. Each book is autographed by author Rob Rains.
To participate, here is what you need to do. Make a strong post AND ensure it is called out by someone (the poster or another community member) on THIS designated thread. Included should be a clear explanation of which post, the poster, the thread, date and time. A link to the post would be even better. The easier I can locate the post at month-end, the better chance it will have to be selected.
The winning post I will choose from your nominees can be the start of a new thread or a contribution of an already-open discussion. Scout.com subscribers and non-subscribers are equally eligible. Good luck to all!

Not trying to rush you though, Brian, it's just that I haven't been able to sleep for days awaiting the winner.....I hope I didn't just blow what little chance I had right out of the water.
