Indoor Four ’14: July

Indoor Four logo
Last year’s overall winner, Paul Van Beek of Winona, Minnesota, ripped it up in June with his Dee Gordon selection. The Dodgers’ speedster collected five triples to coast to victory and once again place Beek atop the season standings.

But remember, folks, anyone can do it. And has. I’ll never let you forget that we have given away Best Buy gift cards to contestants who have picked Kevin Youkilis and Joe Mauer, so pick a player — any player — and they may be the one who helps earn you a $100 Best Buy gift card at year’s end.

Now, Gordon, Yasiel Puig and Billy Hamilton have been hot commodities in 2014, but there have been some solid guys flying under radar to this point, including Jose Altuve, who not only leads the American League in batting, but has stolen 36 bases to go along with his pair of triples. The Magnificent Midget can hit and he can fly, so that’s a combination worth your attention. And what about Brandon Crawford out in ‘Frisco? He may only be batting .252, but his eight triples are good for second in the majors (tied with Alex Rios) behind Gordon. Or what of Brandon Barnes, who already has a pair of inside-the-park home runs not to mention a pair of three-baggers as we embark on July?

So what are you waiting for? Make your selection, then  sit back and enjoy watching your pick strive to make the Splendid Sprint that could send you to Best Buy on B&C’s dime!

The obligatory rules:

1. You may select one player per month. Once any single contestant has chosen a player, said player is designated for that month and cannot be chosen again until the following month. Selections can be made at any time throughout a given month but in order to be eligible for that day’s games, must be done before 1 p.m. eastern standard time. Any selections made after 1 p.m. EST will be eligible for the remainder of the month beginning with the following day’s games. Please note, some contestants will choose the same players – this is a first come, first served contest – whichever contestant submits his / her choice first will be awarded that particular player for that particular month. Contestants will receive email confirmation of the player successfully selected, and we will update this post daily, so be sure to come back to check the bottom of the post with the latest list of players chosen to better make your monthly selection. Any efforts to submit more than one entry per month will be disregarded and disqualify you for that given month.

2. This contest is based on all MLB official scorers rulings. Only officially scored inside-the-park home runs will be eligible. No triples with a one base error or any other creative score keeping.

3. If your player selection is placed on the disabled list, you may choose another player for the remainder of the month, but your original selection becomes a free-agent, so to speak, and can be chosen by another contestant once they return from the DL. Whichever player you choose as a replacement must be kept for the duration of the month.

4. Bugs & Cranks writers and staffers are not eligible to participate.
