33 teams have been 50-22 or better (not including the 2005 White Sox) in the history of MLB.

29 (88%) appeared in the World Series that year.

15 (45%) won the World Series that year.

Only 2 did not make the playoffs.

Interesting...

I emailed that to Hawk hoping he would read it on the air, except I did not include the data on World Series winners, as it is not as impressive as you would expect.

But since WW II, 15 teams have won 50 or more in their first 72. 14 have reached the post-season (the exception being the 1978 Red Sox, unless you count their 1-game playoff loss to the Yankmees "post-season").

I also saw this morning that of the 26 teams with a 10+ game lead at some point in June, all have gone to the playoffs.

Just curious, anyone remember the record at this point in 2000? I remember the Sox were hot in June that year.

46-26 through the first 72 in 2000. They went 49-41 over their last 90, to win only 95 games.

Here's a better stat I heard on ESPN 1000: Acccording to the Elias Sports Bureau, every team that was 10 games in first place at the point in the season we were the other day since 1900 has made the postseason.

I believe they said there were 27 such teams.:cool:

I'm more interesting in winning the World Series than just making the postseason right now. I don't even care if this team wins 110 games or 92, as long as it knows how to win in October. This is an incredibly balanced team and is able to win in so many different ways. Pitchers' duels. Slugfests. Blowouts. Come from behinds. Stake a lead and hold. Anything. The question is how successful will they be in the post-season against the Angels or the Red Sox or the Twins. Those teams also play solid fundamental baseball, know how to eek out wins in close games, and can dominate an opponent on any night. As long as the lineup stays balanced and doesn't veer toward a power-or-nothing offense then I'm confident they can succeed in October. If Pods and Iguchi seriously falter and PK, Frank and Dye have to carry the team with home runs then we are looking at a potential 2000 scenario again.

It don't mean a thing without the ring. THANK YOU. I don't care how many wins we get for 162 (as long as it's enough to get in) as long we get 11 in the playoffs.

After the Chicago Bulls won 72 games in the regular season, Scottie Pippen, IIRC, coined the phrase "It don't mean a thing without the ring." What he was saying was that the 72 regular season wins was nice and all but winning the whole damn thing was the goal of the team.
