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

    I thought the midseason point might be a good time to bump this thread. The Reds stand at 40-41, on pace for 80 wins. I'm not sure what the protocol is like for this thread in the past, but I certainly enjoyed reading it today.

    My pessimism appears to be off the mark a decent amount. For some reason I had in my mind that i predicted 74 wins for this team this season, but I guess I predicted 72. I now think they'll win 76-77 games.

    Fun thread!

    I'm starting to regret my adjusted prediction, and wish I would have just kept my original one! Anyone else want to make a revision?

    I think I said 85. What was I thinking?

    I'm feeling more like 73 now.

    I said 74.....and they ain't gonna make it. They'd have to go 29-32 just to reach that.

    They'll be lucky to go 20-41 the remainder of the season, just to finish up at 65-97. I say they hit the 100 loss mark.

    Geez! What a goal for '09..... avoiding 100 losses.

    101 games down, 61 to go.

    The race for 70 wins is on!

    I said 81 wins +/- 10 games. I might be off, even within my margin of error!

    No way this team's got 25 more wins in it. I'd be stunned if they win 20 more the rest of the way.

    I'll defer to your cave-in vision (proven out in previous seasons), though 25-36 from here on out strikes me as plausible.

    I suppose they COULD pay off some umps or something.

    I predicted 72 and with a bunch of luck they can still reach it!
