Contest Time!

The Thunder Top 10 series has concluded, but there's still a bit of time before spring training, so I figured it might be fun to do a contest on the blog to keep you warm while the hot stove cools. So, without further ado, here goes.

THE CONTEST: Baseball America has already given us their Top 10 Yankees prospects. For those who need a refresher, those 10 were:

1. Jesus Montero
2. Gary Sanchez
3. Dellin Betances
4. Manny Banuelos
5. Andrew Brackman
6. Austin Romine
7. Hector Noesi
8. Eduardo Nunez
9. Slade Heathcott
10. Brandon Laird

Here's what I want you, my readers, to do: I want you to give me, in order, your guess for how BA will rank the Yankees' 11th-30th best prospects. It's as simple as that. In case there are multiple winners, here are two tiebreaker questions I'd like you to answer:

1. Off of whom did Jesus Montero hit his first Thunder home run?
2. Against whom did Jesus Montero record his first Thunder strikeout?

HOW TO ENTER: Below are the steps you need to take to partake in the fun and games. They're very simple.

1. On Twitter, follow @trentonsports, the account for The Trentonian's sport department
2. In the comments of this blog post, give me your guess for next 20 prospects on Baseball America's list, as well as your answers to the tiebreaker questions.

Entries will be accepted until next Friday, January 21. At that point, I will announce the winner and mail him or her the prize, which is detailed below.

FABULOUS PRIZES: The winner will receive Thunder bobbleheads of the following Thunder players - Brett Gardner, Francisco Cervelli, Mark Melancon and ... Jesus Montero, as well as a Bowman Chrome rookie card of Corban Joseph.

I was thinking 50 IP is their cutoff (re: Nova at 13) but it's probably 30. Given that, I would take Nova out, slide everyone else up on and add Tommy Kahnle at the end.

Will, Nova is eligible. Also, I need some contact info from you, if you win.
