On his blog last week, Joe Posnanski joked that the text polls run during baseball games should have questions like "Which Royals player do you think could eat the most hot dogs without getting sick?" or "Which Royals player do you think has an actual superpower?"
I'll admit it: I'm running empty on poll question ideas right now, so this seems like as good an idea as any. Inspired by Mr. Posnanski, we'll nod toward Cool Hand Luke and its famous egg-eating contest for this week's poll question:
Could any Tiger take down 50 eggs like Paul Newman's character did? ("No man can eat 50 eggs!") The choices in the poll are a bit arbitrary, so if you feel that I wrongly left someone out, please speak up. And though Gene Lamont isn't a player, I feel he could compete in this feat of gluttony.
You can find the poll on the right sidebar below the FanPosts block. Or you can vote here. And if you have suggestions for future poll questions (which I clearly need), shoot me an e-mail. Please add your thoughts in the comments.
How did our last poll go?No one liked the Putz, eh? Yeah, this season would likely be much, much different if the Tigers had traded for J.J. Putz instead of Edwin Jackson. Possibly the best consolation prize ever.
What's the best move the Tigers didn't make this offseason?
19% Sign John Smoltz
42% Trade for J.J. Putz
29% Sign Kerry Wood
8% Trade for Jack Wilson
