Very nice, now answer the question.

 

Most Over/Under attempted:

 

23 Darth Wicket

22 Primbud

11 Nomaa Jedi Piarra

 

*uses simple Math to steal some superstatistician thunder*

 

Yours should be 25 ... you forgot to add the 3 in your ties column.

 

I'll say over for the Major League leading HR hitter.

 

RBIs for Major League leader in the coming year - 150

Under. The Bears defense has proven time and again to be overrated. They're so obsessed with the Monsters of the Midway, some people think just because the Bears are successful, it must be the defense riding the charge.

 

Rex Grossman incompletions @ 15

# of 20 game winners = 0

DW (1-0)

Prim : Over. That's tougher than I thought. What did you have in mind for that one, the AL dominance??

Number of World Series games - 5

Prim (0-1)

Jeter RBI = 97

DW (1-1)

DW : O/U - Number of pitchers with 250+ K's this season - 2

No of pitchers with 250+ K = 0

Prim (1-2-1)

DW : O/U - Palpebon's ERA this season - 1.00

Prim : Over. I can't trust any so-called superclosers unless I see them in action for a long time.

The Trevor Hoffmans and Mariano Riveras are few and fare between but the Brad Lidges are not.

Palpebon's ERA = 0.92

Prim (1-3-1)

Prim : Mark Texeira home runs this season O/U 23 - he's at 9 right now.

DW (1-3)

DW : Teams under .500 in NL East O/U 3

Prim : Under. I think everyone except Washington will do some good and approach

the mark in their own gutless way.

Teams under .500 in NL East = 3

Prim (2-3-3)

Prim : Aubrey Huff home runs as an Astro thru 2006 at 14

DW : Under...but just barely.

DW : Number of awards won by NL East and AL East teams this year

(out of 8 total - MVP, Cy Young, ROY, and Manager of the Year) - 3

Prim : Under, but only a little over half the regular season's over so my

decision isn't as solid as it could be.

# of awards by East teams = NL MVP, NL ROY, NL MOY (3)

Prim (2-4-4)

Prim : Ichiro Suzuki O/U 225 hits this year

DW : Over.

Suzuki hits = 224
