Favorite Marlin Contest: Round Two, Day Four

New, 6 comments

We're almost through the second round and once we are, the matchups promise to get better. That said, we've had a few really good ones so far (including a close one yesterday), and I think we might have another today.

If you're just joining us, check out the entry from Day One, which gives something of an overview for the whole process.

Yesterday's Results
All advance to the Sweet Sixteen: Cliff Floyd, Luis Castillo, Derrek Lee, Preston Wilson.

Today's Matchups

Number One
Josh Beckett - vs. Brad Penny - The ace or the almost ace?

Number Two
Dontrelle Willis vs. Juan Pierre - Two good friends who were both key contributors to the championship team.

Number Three
Mike Lowell vs. Luis Castillo - Arguably the two most under-rated and under-appreciated players on the 2003 roster.

Number Four
Miguel Cabrera vs. Ivan Rodriguez - The man-child, who played like a future Hall of Famer and the mortal-lock Future Hall of Famer, who played like one?

Who is your favorite Marlin?

Number One: Josh Becket vs. Brad Penny
Number Two: Dontrelle Willis vs. Juan Pierre
Number Three: Mike Lowell vs. Luis Castillo
Number Four: Miguel Cabrera vs. Ivan Rodriguez
