Predicting the World Series with a Topps Series 2 blaster

22 10 2008

Head to head, most cards wins.

Pack 1
Carlos Pena, Tampa Rays.  Hitting .333 with 3 HRs so far in the post season.

Rays 1, Phillies 0

Pack 2
No Rays, no Phillies

Rays 1, Phillies 0

Pack 3
Joe Maddon, Tampa –  Manager of the year?
Willy Aybar, Tampa – .421 in the ACLS with an all important HR in game 7.
Cliff Floyd, Tampa – Not everyone can be a hero.

Rays 4, Phillies 0

Pack 4 & 5
No Rays, No Phillies

Rays 4, Phillies 0

Pack 6
Tom Gordon, Phillies – On the DL and yet to play. Worth .5, I think.

Rays 4, Phillies .5

Pack 7
Charlie Manuel, Phillies – Both managers represented.
Brad Lidge, Phillies – 7 innings, 10 K’s, 1 run. Tough to argue with that one. However, the card itself is damaged. .5 point deduction for that one.

Rays 4, Phillies 2

Pack 8
Topps All Rookie 50th Anniversary Carlos Ruiz, Phillies – Hitting .200 so far in the playoffs. Extra credit for the insert closes the gap.

Rays 4, Phillies 3.5

Pack 9
Jamie Shields,Tampa – 1-2 with a 3.72 ERA in the post season. Decent enough

Rays 5, Phillies 3.5

Pack 10
Adam Eaton, Phillies – Not on the postseason roster as far as I can tell. .5 points

Final Score Rays 5, Phillies 4.5

Well, if the blaster is to be trusted – wait, what’s this tucked in the side…

PAT THE BAT GAME USED!!!!11!1!1 Phillies MOJO!!!!!11!1!

Sorry Rays fan, the blaster has spoken.

And I vow never to use the MOJO again.
