Help us write our ultimate ad for Jim Traber’s BaseballReference.com page”¦

For the past year or so, The Lost Ogle has been the proud sponsor of the Jim Traber stats page at BaseballReference.com. The original ad only cost us $10 for the entire year.  Here it is:

This is the best $10 ever spent! Read all about Jim Traber (and the more popular Cardboard Jim Traber) at TheLostOgle.com. While you’re there, you can even play the Jim Traber Drinking Game! Don’t be a yardbird, visit today.

Even though we’ve only received a handful of site visits as a result of the ad, we decided to renew it!  We’ve done this for a couple of reasons.

  1. It has to irritate Jim Traber that we are sponsors of his stats page.  Especially when you consider he is probably the only person visiting it.
  2. The price lowered to $5 a year.  Seriously.

Well, since we are now the proud sponsors of Jim Traber’s pathetic stats for another 12-months, we figured it was time to update our ad.   And we want your help in getting it done!

Over the next week, leave your suggestion (or suggestions) for our ad.  The suggestion we like the most (a.k.a. funniest) will be determined the winner, with the winning author receiving a $50 Gift Card to Iguana Mexican Grill.

Here are the rules:

“¢ Contest runs from today through Sunday, May 22nd.

“¢ The ad must be 255 characters or less and meet BaseballReference.com guidelines.

“¢ Entries can be submitted either through email or by placing a comment.

Well, I think that’s pretty simple.  Good luck!
