I just looked over the schedule and figured it all out. Mark me down for 98 wins.

March/April: 21-6 The first four weeks of the schedule are the weak sisters of the division. We absolutely must jump out quickly if we are going to take this division.

May: 14-14 A west coast trip and away at Minnesota make this a tough month.

June: 15-13 Away at Arizona, Minnesota and the Cubs could cause some problems. Home series with San Francisco, Boston and the Cubs make this a month in which a championship season is forged. If we come out of this month above .500, expect good things.

July: 18-7 Lots of Tampa Bay, Detroit and Cleveland. Along with April, this is the month that it is absolutely essential to dominate.

August: 16-13 Another West Coast swing (love falling asleep to games, hate waking up to losses). 4 at Anaheim and a trip to New York pose some problems here.

September 14-11 Definitely a playoff tuneup month. Boston home and away, Minnesota home and away and the Yankees at home. We need a lead heading into this one because we are not going to make up ground in September.

98 should be enough to get us some sort of playoff action.

I agree except for I feel as though they might go 17-8 in July.

I have them losing a game to Tampa Bay because of Manuel's tinkering. They will finish at 97-65.

Actually, the century mark of Cubs ineptitude will be reached 2008, the last year they won the World Series, defeating the Detroit Tigers, IIRC.

My God, 100 years. Just thinking about that is amazing. Just like the White Sox with 85 years. It's absolutely shocking how both Chicago teams can have such a long, long, long, long period of nothing but losing.

Really makes you appreciate life a little bit more, huh? :smile:

If the White Sox don't win over a 100 games with the pitching and the offense that they have I'll kill myself by becoming a Cubs fan. Alright I went too far, but this team has the look of a World Series contender!

I like the optimism, but don't set goals that we can't reach.

90 wins, a close second and call it a good year.

Yeah, you made a good prediction for the Twins.

As for the White Sox, 96-66 is good enough for me. :)
