We wanted to do something fun for the 2011 season. So we decided to run a little over/under contest. Below you will see several totals for the 2011 season. Your job is simply to predict whether the actual number at the end of the year will be OVER or UNDER the predicted number.

Just submit your entries to our TIPS address (tips at raysindex.com). If you prefer, you can leave your answers in the comments below.

The winner will receive a $50 gift card to the online shop of your favorite baseball team…
