The Over, the Under and my Prophecy
So many numbers to go through, so many stats....it's fucking awesome wouldn't you say? I could probably make this the longest most drawn out blog in history, but don't want to completely bore everyone who may come across it in their lifetime. I've gone to the trouble of setting what I believe are some interesting over/unders relating to the upcoming MLB season. Sure, you may disagree with my genius but isn't that what makes this game so grand? So here they are, I'd accept your wagers, but am quite confident my broke ass wouldn't be the most prompt in paying out.
Toronto Blue Jays - Wins - 89.5 - Not good enough for the east, Wild card??
Roy Halladay - Wins - 17.5 - I know what I'd be taking here.
Alex Rios - Home Runs - 26.5 - Last years first half showed what he's capable of.
Aaron Hill - RBI's - 84.5 - He's only going to get better.
Scott Rolen - Games Played - 119.5 - Still a question mark durability wise.
B.J. Ryan - saves - 17.5 - Again, another question mark, but we're hopeful.
Gustavo Chacin - Innings Pitched - 102.5 - I'm being generous.
Team Stolen Bases - 60.5 - Check what they had last year.
Scott Downs - Games - 77.5 - Every other day last season.
Team AVG - .2675 - Gotta be better than last season.
Combined wins between Burnett, Marcum & McGowan - 33.5 - It better be over.
Gibby gets tossed from how many games - 8.5 - Light that fire GIBBY.
Times throughout the season JP says, "We like our team" - 235.5 - Enough said.

Those are Jays Specific, let's check out some other shit from around the league...
