2014 over/unders: Arizona Diamondbacks
How many homers will Paul Goldschmidt tally? How many innings will Brandon McCarthy pitch? All of that and more in this D-backs edition of over/unders.
Time for another round of team over/unders. What's this, you ask? Here's the explanation:
As part of our preview of the 2014 season to come, let's roll out a few "over/unders" for each team. That is, we'll assign a number to 10 different categories that, in their own way, will predict one facet of the season ahead. In turn, you, the loyal commenter, will let us know whether you take the "over" or "under" for each category. Stated another way, will the actual figure be higher or lower than the one we've presented? Remember, we're talking 2014 season and 2014 season only.
