Some Twins OVER/UNDERs

I sort of feel like writing Twins crap, but I'm not really sure what to write.  We're sort of in a dead period here.  The roster is pretty much set, but with Spring Training not even started yet we have nothing to really chew on, short of reports on Liriano from the Caribbean World Series which is apparently real and not made up.

So here are some OVER/UNDER numbers I just made up for each our our hometown heroes.  Get to know 'em.

MAUER:  Over/Under 21 Home runs
MORNEAU:  Over/Under .280 batting average
KUBEL:  Over/Under 88 RBI
CUDDYER:  Over/Under 110 Strikeouts
SPAN:  Over/Under .303 batting average
HARDY:  Over/Under 17 home runs
HUDSON:  Over/Under .288 batting average
PUNTO:  Over/Under .245 batting average
DELMON:  Over/Under 36 extra-base hits
THOME:  Over/Under 350 plate appearances
BAKER:  Over/Under 3.92 ERA
BLACKBURN:  Over/Under 13 Wins
SLOWEY:  Over/Under 25 Home runs allowed
LIRIANO:  Over/Under 23 games started
PAVANO:  Over/Under 186 innings pitched
NATHAN:  Over/Under 39 saves
GUERRIER:  Over/Under 72 games
CRAIN:  Yes/No on Major League Roster on July 15th (DL counts as No)


Once again, I just made these up.  They aren't from Vegas or anybody who knows anything, just from my dumb head.  And I'm pretty rattled right now because I watched LOST last night and honest to god I love that show but trying to figure it out is like hitting yourself in the cubes with a pillow case full of door handles.  And then doing it again every Tuesday.

If enough people actually give their picks in the comment section here below to make it interesting I'll come up with a prize at the end of the year for the winner.  If I remember.

What, No OPS+ over/unders?????

The only thing Kubel beats Cuddyer in is a pancake eating contest and gayness!

That is awesome that Helton is there early leading some warm-ups. You know who else does this? Retarded kids for the make a wish foundation, which he is not far from.
