My first post on OTM, last September was a fun game of "Over-Under". It was a way to sit back, relax and enjoy the end of the Twins first losing season since 2001. There were things like
-Over/Under 8 times Dick Bremer says “Nick Punto has had a tough year"
-'Over/Under 8 times' Dick or Bert mention some sort of streak, and it is subsequently broken on the next pitch.
So now, we have a brand new season, and 162 chances to Guess whether Dick and Bert will go over or under. Now don't get me wrong, I think we are blessed to have Dick and Bert broadcasting our games, especially when we turn on the Radio and hear Dan Gladden mumbling. These guys give great excitement and energy, and I love listening to them, but sometimes they just mention the same things over and over. Give me some predictions here, and we'll just have to watch and see. Rule: They don't have to talk a whole game about it, just mention it in the broadcast. I hope to update this, but right now most numbers will be about 50% or 80 games.
