Unfortunately, you cannot pick Jose Bautista.

The "Pick the Stick" Challenge: Blue Jays at Twins edition.

Last week's winner was Brandon Brooks with 14, can you top that?

How it Works:

Pick two hitters on the Twins and you'll score points based on how they do in the game. Naturally, your two picks should be different players. Points from the two picks will be added to create the total (warning: math involved, which I will be doing).

I only have one last rule and that is to have fun pick your players before the game. Comments will close on this once the game starts. Also, a good idea would be to wait until lineups are out to pick your players. I'll post lineups here as soon as they become available.

The point breakdown:

  • 1: Singles, walks, stolen bases, runs, RBI.
  • 2: Doubles.
  • 3: Triples.
  • 4: Home runs.
  • -1: Strikeouts.
  • -2: Double plays.
