...the Sox are 25-25. Can they sustain a .700 percentage the rest of the way to reach the 95 wins (some say) they need to take the division?

You may want to check your math, along with the fact that this same thread was done a couple of days ago and the fact that the Sox are 1 game in the loss column out of a playoff spot.

Assuming your arithmetic is correct, you're asking the question after the sox have gone on a losing streak. Ask it a week ago, and the answer is probably .600.

.550 ball, plus 3 7-game winning streaks sprinkled in, will do the trick.

.700 is foolish, no. One of these 4 teams in the Central is going to go on a run and win the damn thing. Any of the 4 can (not KC). One of the remaining three will win the Wild Card. Again, any of the 4 can.

Slice and dice the potential wins all you want, one nice streak over 10-15 games and we're probably in first.

Keys:

.550 to .575 ball from here on out.
Couple hot streaks.
We have to obliterate the competition in June during the "easy" stretch.
Win inter-division series, especially against Cleveland/Detroit.

What others said...but .700 ball the rest of the way would be acceptable.:cool:

62.50% winning percentage over the remainder of the season will get us 95 wins. That means only 42 more losses.

Yes. Yes they can.

Sox won't be able to sustain an above .600 winning percentage with the shaky bullpen. They will be lucky to go .500 the rest of the year.

What are the chances we'll get rid of Aardsma, McBrutal, and Logan? Or at least 2 of them. We have no chance with these guys in the bullpen.

Currently 25-26. 111 games left.

To reach 95, we must go 70-41. That's .631 baseball. For the record, the Indians are playing .642 baseball.

You forgot one thing, drop Aardsma and MacDoodle on a remote Pacific Island without a boat.

With this bullpen, it will take a miracle.

I think the lineup will get going. The starting pitching has been pretty solid all year. But we are about three arms short in the bullpen.

We mocked Cleveland's offseason bullpen acquisitions. We were living in a glass house.

And pick someone up from that remote Pacific Island, perferably two righties with good arms that can throw strikes and get batters out.

Sorry dude. We already have enough problems with the Others and the Hatch and the Looking Glass and all. We don't need a washed up Cub and Ichobod Crane, too Dude.

Biggest key there, for momentum more than anything else, is get some wins vs. DET, CLE, and MIN.

We're far from out of it, but something needs to change.

Heck, anyone in the AL as far as the Wild Card goes. While the Interleague games should be a cakewalk, you're not adding a loss on an AL team.

Is anything a cakewalk for the 2007 Chicago White Sox? We are 51 games into the season, and we only have three victories that have come by four or more runs.
