Boy I'm going to have to see how the offseason goes but at this point I'm sure not projecting an 88 win season.

Jones is what he is. He is a very good hitter.

While it would be nice to win 80, we will spend the whole winter agonizing over that 1 game that got away that could've ended this cursed streak. :x


Not me. Seeing my sports teams lose is like water off a duck's back. The Pirates made me that way.

I can live with 79. That is, over 80.

80 would have been haunting.

The A.J. injury
The J-Mac meltdown
The Chaz-Mo/Karstens injuries
The Walker injury
The numerous blown leads
Etc.

There are at least 3 (more) wins lost this season.

If you aren't confident that they (and more) can be found next season, come with me to the merry ole land of Oz and we'll get that courage together. We'll get this 'tin man team' some heart for the 2nd half and Clint Hurdle some (don't start Barajas/Barmes every game!) brains, too! :D

Remember 2012---that needs to be the motto. This team needs to remember it so it can use it as motivation to overcome and then forget it.

2013 will not be lucky number 21.

They obviously weren't a 15+ games over .500 club, but there is regressing to the mean and there is outright historically collapsing.
