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:
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.
