Look at his predictions, theres no way we win 95 games if we hit the amount of homeruns he says we will, with the ERA he predicts we will get. No way no how.

Do you realize that there was only one team in AL with an ERA under 4? A team ERA of 3.84 would probably be the best pitching in the AL in 2010.

No I didnt, but look where that went for the Mariners, only 85 wins, with 160 HRs. Not to mention their defense is galaxies better than our defense. No way we win 95 games with what he mentioned for the over/under.

You can score runs without the homerun, and this offense is going to have to do it if it wants to win. Plus that's a team ERA, which means the rotation could be very good with some bullpen blow ups.

Uh...no, the M's defense was awful. I bet our defense in 2010 is much better than the 2009 Mariners.

Just for kicks, care to make a wager that most of these predictions(atleast 6 of 11) will be wrong?

We can meet at Grandstand after the season and settle up on a Sox hat of choice or something. Ok ?

Since it's the All-Star break, I thought I would revive this thread and see where we pegged all the players and their over/unders this far into the season.

Well, back in April in Vegas I locked in the White Sox at over 82.5 wins....so I put my money where my mouth is. I had given up on that bet around mid May but now it's looking pretty solid. My bet for the Sox to win the divsion at 13/2 doesn't look too shabby either. Only one I'm regretting not pulling the trigger on was Paulie on over 27 home runs...ugh, what could have been.

Mods...I didn't see anything in the Code of Conduct that precludes me from reference a legal sports bet, but if this is an issue, I apologize and feel free to delete.
