Default The 2018 Dinger Whiff Derby Thread Sweepstakes

This thread will be the ultimate delight for all you Yankee fans.

There are three choices in this year’s Dinger Whiff Derby. Until opening day you may choose any of the three choices

1. Giancarlo Stanton
2. Aaron Judge
3. The Field (meaning anyone else on any major league team who scores higher will win for The Field)

The rules

1. Each entrant gets 4 points for each regular season home run.

2. Each entrant gets -1 point for each regular season strike out.

3. The highest total by a single player at the end of the season is the winner.

4. To enter the sweepstakes contest, simply guess the winning player in the Dinger Whiff derby and his winning Dinger Whiff number at season's end.
A prize to be determined related to the winning player will be awarded. To qualify for the prize you must guess both the player and the number on the nose.
The deadline for sweepstakes entries shall be the "All-Star Game break".
You may make a single revision of your entry until September 1 to change the Dinger Whiff number, but not the player.

The Scoreboard below will be updated periodically during the season. If I am incorrect about the leader in the Field, please let me know.

Current standings including games played on 7/27

71 . The Field Leader Ramirez (30 HR, 49 K)
50 . The Field Runnerup Betts (25 HR, 50 K)
-33 . Judge (26 HR, 137 K)
-43 . Stanton (23 HR, 135 K)
-87 . Last place ?? Moncado (13 HR, 139 K)

Enjoy the season and please note that you can easily follow this thread by simply googling “Dinger Whiff”


To become a member of the Dinger Whiff Hall of Fame you must have over 1000 Dinger Whiff points.

Currently there are only 10 members of this exclusive Hall of Fame

1. Hank Aaron. 1637
2. Babe Ruth. 1526
3. Barry Bonds. 1509
4. Ted Williams. 1375
5. Albert Pujols. 1312. Still active so his number could go up or down.
6. Stan Musial. 1204
7. Lou Gehrig. 1182
8. Mel Ott. 1148
9. Willie Mays. 1114
10. Joe DiMaggio. 1075

If I missed one, please kindly let me know.

Will Stanton or Judge make the Hall?

All my cards are centered, some are just cut incorrectly.

Only 37.10% crazy based on recent polling data, but still a weird dude.

Great Idea, Frank.

I'm not a Yankees' fan (though I don't hate them), so I'll take the field.

For all we know, both Stanton and Judge peaked last year.

I realize they both have plenty of opposite-field power, but if they were left-handed in Yankee Stadium, I may have chosen one of them instead of the field.

We’re off and running.

Currently Stanton leads Judge by 9 points, but trails the Field (Davidson) by 6.



Still time to enter due to lack of enthusiasm.

I think Sano has a chance to have the highest negative number this year. He is amazing in his ability to strikeout almost every at bat.

Judge has tied Stanton at -3 but they remain 15 points behind Harper and Dozier at this point.

It also looks like Ohtani could be the Dinger Whiff Rookie of the Year with 8 points so far. Time will tell.

Ian Happ has struck out a mind boggling 20 times in his first seven games, making him a bit hapless at the plate.

Actually a mere 27 points behind Harper the leader with 19.

Did you know that Joe DiMaggio is in the Dinger Whiff Hall of Fame with a career Dinger Whiff total of 1075?
