This was a rousing success last season, so lets give it another shot.

Lets have everybody chime in here, and lets hold off on the "If so an so is healthy" or if this/that stuff for this one thread.

We'll have 50 other threads were you can guess 162-0 or 110-52, so Ill ask very, very, very nicely to please give a simple range of Ws for a regular season record prediction. Not your hope, not a best/worst case scenarion, not your "optimistic", "pessimistic", or "realistic" slant, but the number you'd put out there if you had to bet your house on being right.

Max range of 5 Ws, and not give or take 5 (a 10 W range).

Gonelong predicts: 81-86 Ws

Lets see if I am homeless by the end of the season. :)

Well, at our vintage base ball meeting I predicted 88 wins. But I think I may have been to optimistic. I'm predicting 78 wins now. And I'm usually pretty optimistic. I sure hope I'm wrong.

I say they win 91 games and a wild card.

I said roughly a month and a half ago--89 wins. I now predict 89 wins, and a possible wildcard.

What's with all these 10 game ranges people are giving? Predict a single number, darnit.

Ravenlord
03-28-2003, 07:29 PM
ok, 79 wins

Edskin

Yeah, c'mon folks, grow some ^&$&^$'s!

87 wins-- and it may be enough to win the Central!

I said at the beginning of spring training that I'm seeing 92 wins...I'll stick with that:thumbup:

86 wins....Because somebody already guessed 87.

This is going to be a very FUN year.

87 L's :thumbdn:

If nothing else, it'll be neat to see the new stadium this year.

80 wins, but if Boone gets fired during the season I'd like to revise it to 88

Ravenlord
03-28-2003, 10:27 PM
oh, if we're including Boone getting fired i'll move it up to 86 wins.

I know it's less than 24 hours since I made my predicition, but I thought about it, and I realized I made that 87 wins pick with HUGE Red colored glasses on. That's my pick if EVERYTHING falls into place--- but it almost never does.

And I simply can't shake my pessimism about Bob Boone.

Maybe it's just season-eve jitters, but if you REALLY want to know how many games I think we'll win:

79

I think we'll "hang around" in the playoff race for most of the year, but never really be a threat. Boone will be axed after the season, if not sooner. But I do think Junior, Kearns, and Boone are all going to have big years.

Speak now, or forever hold your peace, gang. This one's going to the archives soon, so it's time to ante up.

I'm sticking with my 162-0 prediction of a few months ago.

I'm going to go with 85-77.

15fan, that's a pretty gutsy prediction! :thumbup: ;)

Red Leader
03-29-2003, 04:53 PM
My exact record prediction 83-79.

If I had a 5 win swing, it would be somewhere between 79-84 wins, basically I think this a .500 team.

I do think 2004 will be better.

Red in Chicago
03-29-2003, 05:31 PM
i'm going with 78-84. unfortunately, the pitching isn't good enough to carry us any further. not quite the team we were promised at the opening of gab. to quote a cubs fan..."wait 'til next year".
