This is an over under game i stole from ESPN. I thought this might be good to see what everybody around here thinks.

1.Over or Under, 1 1/2 teams make the playoffs from the AL East?

2.Over or Under, The Mets will eliminated from playoff contention on September 30th?

3.Over or Under, Cubs playoff wins.2 1/2?

4.Over or Under, 16 wins this year for CC Sabathia?

5.Over or Under, 30 Homeruns for Alex Rodriguez?

6.Over or Under, Manny Ramirez plays 143 1/2 games this season?

7.Over or Under, 85 1/2 wins by the AL Central Champ?

8.Over or Under, The Angels win the AL West by 3 1/2 games?

9.Over or Under, 3 1/2 names leaked from the steroid list?

10.Over or Under, 2 1/2 managers fired by the end of the 2009 season?

Now for what i think.

1.Over or Under, 1 1/2 teams make the playoffs from the AL East? Over.2 Redsox and Yankees(Rays just miss out).

2.Over or Under, The Mets will eliminated from playoff contention on September 30th? Under. I think this will be a poor year for the Mets because of their weak rotation.

3.Over or Under, Cubs playoff wins.2 1/2? Over. I suprised myself with this one but i think they make it to the NLCS and lose there.

4.Over or Under, 16 wins this year for CC Sabathia? I can't go over or under on this because i have him winning 16 games this year.

5.Over or Under, 30 Homeruns for Alex Rodriguez? Over. With all the steroid stuff he needs to come back and prove him can still hit. I think he will hit around 32-35 this season.

6.Over or Under, Manny Ramirez plays 143 1/2 games this season? Under. He will get injured and probably only play 130. He makes it back in time though for the playoffs.

7.Over or Under, 85 1/2 wins by the AL Central Champ? Under. I think the Twins win it with 82 wins.

8.Over or Under, The Angels win the AL West by 3 1/2 games? Over. I think they win it by atleast 5 games.

9.Over or Under, 3 1/2 names leaked from the steroid list? Under. I don't think any other names will get leaked this season.

10.Over or Under, 2 1/2 managers fired by the end of the 2009 season? Over i think Jim Leyland will be the first to go.

1. Over
2. This one is meant as a joke ...
3. Under
4. Over
5. Under (no juice, injury, no 30)
6. Under (he will be injured before May 31)
7. Over
8. Under (pitching woes)
9. Over (the list will be released at some point, all 100+ names)
10. Over. Several teams will be disappointed at their record after 80 games and will make a move.

OVER... Tampa and NYY will make it. Big Papi's decline will hurt the Bo Sox this year. As much as I hate to say it (Not a Sox fan, but I like Big Papi)


2.Over or Under, The Mets will eliminated from playoff contention on September 30th?

No. Mets and MArlins are comin' out of the NL East.


3.Over or Under, Cubs playoff wins.2 1/2?

Under. 3 years, 3 sweeps. The 2 NL East teams will meet for the NLCS


4.Over or Under, 16 wins this year for CC Sabathia?

Over. He'll find his groove



5.Over or Under, 30 Homeruns for Alex Rodriguez?

Under. Too injured.



6.Over or Under, Manny Ramirez plays 143 1/2 games this season?

Under. Too old. 130-140


7.Over or Under, 85 1/2 wins by the AL Central Champ?

Under. Any team could go 84-78 and take that division


8.Over or Under, The Angels win the AL West by 3 1/2 games?

Under. The Angels have an off year every so often. One of the other teams will make the playoffs.



9.Over or Under, 3 1/2 names leaked from the steroid list?

I'll steal an answer from Mike and Mike (though I can't remember which analyst). Over--too many good reporters are digging into this one for names NOT to come out.



10.Over or Under, 2 1/2 managers fired by the end of the 2009 season?

Under. Too many decent teams. 2 max. More in early October.

3.Over or Under, Cubs playoff wins.2 1/2? Under.

4.Over or Under, 16 wins this year for CC Sabathia? Under.

5.Over or Under, 30 Homeruns for Alex Rodriguez? Under, if his injury is as bad as I heard it was.

6.Over or Under, Manny Ramirez plays 143 1/2 games this season? I will always take the under on this for players over the age of 35.

7.Over or Under, 85 1/2 wins by the AL Central Champ? Over.

8.Over or Under, The Angels win the AL West by 3 1/2 games? Over.

9.Over or Under, 3 1/2 names leaked from the steroid list? Depends on whether or not Bud thinks that Congress might take away baseball's antitrust exemption this year.

10.Over or Under, 2 1/2 managers fired by the end of the 2009 season? Over.
