    Gonelong's 6th annual Season W/L prediction thread ...

    Lurkers, not a better time to make your first post!

    Ok, time for Gonelong's 6th annual Reds Win prediction thread. Similar to years past my requests are minimal:

    1) Lets scrap the "range" idea we have been working on and just post a number of Ws.
    2) Lets make our prediction as if your house was being bet on it. (Please no 162 Ws, etc ? we have other threads available for this)
    3) I will be **AT** the game this year, thanks to my brother! Once I return from the game I'll compute the average and post it as the "Redszone consensus".

    Here are the historical prediction threads, if anyone wants to check on their past performance:
    2007 - RZ Ws: Acutal: PTHG:
    2006 - RZ Ws: 76.66 Actual: 80 PTHG: 76 - Slightly Pesimistic
    2005 -
    RZ Ws: 84.67 Actual: 73 PTHG: 75 - Wildy Optimistic
    2004 -
    RZ Ws: 76.82 Actual: 76 PTHG: 67 - Right On
    2003 -
    RZ Ws: 87.88 Actual: 69 PTHG: 63 - Wildly Optimistic
    2002 - RZ Ws: 79.71 Actual: 78 PTHG: 75 - Slightly Optimistic

    I realize there is a VERY similar thread on the board at this time. Feel free to ignore this one, I won't be put out either way.

    My prediction for 2007 prediction of Reds Wins is 82 Ws.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    77 Wins
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
