    2009 - Gonelong's 8th annual Season Ws prediction thread ..

    Ok, time for Gonelong's 8th annual Reds Win prediction thread.

    1. Give a number of Ws you project.
    2. Make the prediction as honestly as you can. It's a prediction, not a hope.

    Once I return from the game I'll compute the average.

    Hopefully the Sundeck will organize a thread and take up a friendly challenge from the ORG group. Last year ORG was a bit closer that the Sundeck.

    My prediction for the Reds is that they will win 78 games.

    Go Reds!

    GL


    Average of ~7 wins too optimistic as a group.

    I've been looking forward to this thread!

    I'll say 77 wins...

    I said 76 last year and was "optimistic" by two wins.

    I'm upping the ante this year: 80 wins.
