Big League Stew's Mascot Madness bracket is underway! Check out the matchups below and click on each matchup to head to the BLS Facebook page to vote. Your mascot is counting on you. Today, the final first-round matchups.
#1 Pirate Parrot (Pittsburgh) vs. #8 Baxter (Arizona) (VOTE HERE)
The Pirate Parrot steps up against Baxter, which is a bobcat, which is weird because Arizona's team name is a snake, but then perhaps a diamondback isn't exactly the cuddliest mascot you can imagine. Anyway, Bird v. Cat. Who ya got?
#4 Slider (Cleveland) vs. #5 Sluggerrr (Kansas City) (VOTE HERE)
Slidin' versus sluggin'! Which one you like in this Midwest showdown? And why does Sluggerrr have so many R's when Slider only has the requisite one? What's up with that, huh?
#2 Billy the Marlin (Miami) vs. #7 Orbit (Houston) (VOTE HERE)
[Baseball 2013 from Yahoo! Fantasy Sports: Join a league today!]
A couple of franchises heading in the wrong direction could be salvaged with a mascot victory! Really, they could! So give your pity vote to one of these poor sad fellows.
#3 Swinging Friar (San Diego) vs. #6 Captain Jolly Roger (Pittsburgh) (VOTE HERE)
Good versus evil! Friar vs. Pirate! You can mock if you want, but this is going to be the plot of Pirates of the Caribbean 5.
