I have a couple Cubs/Marlins bleacher tickets to next Thursday’s game (July 19 at 1:20 CT), but, unfortunately, I won’t be able to use them. Rather than sell them, I’d like to give them to one of you. So, here, catch.

Naw. Wouldn’t that be crazy?

Instead, here’s how I’m going to do it. See that there picture of Matt Garza? It’s begging for a caption.

So, to win the tickets, this is all you have to do: head over to the BN Facebook page, “like” it, and drop a comment on this picture on the wall offering your caption. The comment with the most thumbs ups by Sunday, July 15 at 4pm CT wins the tickets. It’s kind of like a democratic way of settling which caption is the best. (Or, which commenter has the most friends they can cajole into a thumbs up).

I’ll leave the tickets for you at will call, but make sure you respond to my Facebook message promptly if you’re the winner.

Because of the mechanics of this contest, you’ve got to be on Facebook to enter and win (my apologies). You can still offer your caption in the comments for fun and posterity, but you won’t be entered to win.

      I don’t think there is any way Szczur makes it here before Jackson.
      However, I think he could be the better player.
      His line, aside from the slightly down power numbers, is quite impressive at A+ right now.
      He has a fairly low amount of K’s, which is usually not typical of 2 sport guys. But what is even more impressive is the amount of walks he has. For a guy that low in the minors, with so little baseball development, to be walking like that….awesome.

  • Vladimir
