    Pool: Guess Dice K's Return Date

    We're reading a lot of optimistic reports about Dice 's progress. He's on the second leg of his rehab. Many are projecting that he will be back in the rotation by June 1st. I am on record as not being that optimistic about his return date. Our resident TalkSox physician has opined that it takes more than 12 months for a starter to return to effectiveness. Let's try to guess the date of Dice K's first start. Whoever comes closest to the date of his first Red Sox start will win $20. The prize will get bumped up to $50 if you guess the exact date. The selected dates will be posted here for everyone to see. The date of his return to the roster is not what we are guessing. Also, an appearance in relief doesn't count. We are guessing the date of his first start. There are only a few conditions:

    1. Eligibility is limited to members with at least 100 posts
    2. Only 1 entry per member
    3. You can't duplicate someone else's entry
    4. You can't edit your post that includes your entry. That will invalidate your entry.
    5. Your entry must be submitted by midnight EDT this Friday (4/27).

    Good luck!

    Selected Dates:

    May 15 Palodios
    May 18th Divinity
    May 23 MannyHOF24
    May 25 ORS
    May 28 WhiskeyBreath
    June 1 VA Sox Fan
    June 6 Laser Show

    June 6. Winnable home game against the Orioles.

    In accordance with the rules, the Sox rehab assignment to the minors expires after 30 days, and that started on 4/23.......so, Friday 5/25 vs the Rays at home.

    I'm sorry SFoC. But this is what is happening with my PayPal account. They told me that this should've been resolved 2 weeks ago but it hasn't. I've been calling and this is the last mail. I understand. I can't compete without a payment. My bad.

    US Postal Service? mmm... As you probably know, I'm in Mexico. Let me see if our Postal service allow send money to US. As long as I know, they do not allow but let me double check. What about DHL or FEDEX? let me find out if they allow.

    Either way the PayPal Executive gave her word that in the next 72 hrs they will give me a final answer. In the meantime I will try to find a way.

    I'm really sorry with you and the members.

    Regards.

    I'll take the under. May 15st. I could very easily see a player getting hurt, and the Red Sox getting desperate for someone, even just to pitch 60 innings.
