Phillies 2010 Over/Under/Never Events: Time to Play!



Now that I've procrastinated, now is the time to prognosticate. After Juan Castro's extra-base hit during Monday's opener, and now that my taxes are done, it's clearly way past time to get this baseball party started. Fortunately, some late feedback helped make this a better-designed contest (thanks all), so here goes:

For each of the in-game events described below, guess if it will happen before (under), after (over), or not at all (never)  during the regular season of 2010).

One entry per screen name. Enter in the comments below (copy and paste the table, and fill in your guesses in the second column). Tastykake reward (of some kind) for the best prognosticator come October 3. 

Update: Entries were accepted up until April 15, when Ryan Howard threw the ball into LF. June 1.5 was the over/under. Really, what was I thinking? Anyways, like the IRS, if you wanted to enter, you're now too late, and if you did, good luck waiting for your return.
