Indoor Four ’14: May

What an opening month!

2014 represents the fifth edition of the Bugs & Cranks Indoor Four Contest, and while no one made the Splendid Sprint, we have never remotely approached the number of contestants that picked up at least one point for a triple in a single month, let alone the opener.

Fourteen players picked up three-baggers in April, which means the overall leader board is littered with contestants who, to take one from Vin Scully “are not only alive, they are well” and neck-deep in the year-end running for the $100 Best Buy gift card.

Some of the usual suspects collected points for their players — Carlos Gomez, Mike Trout, Andrew McCutchen — but as I always do, I’ll remind you that we’ve given out grand prizes because contestants have picked Kevin Youkilis and Joe Mauer — so anyone can do it.

Which begs the question: Why aren’t you playing? Who couldn’t make use of $100 at Best Buy?! Enter and maybe you’ll go on a shopping spree 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.
