Per BP - the Bucs project to win 79 games and have a 17.0% chance of making the playoffs. That's not terrible.

Fair enough.

Seems like they're more or less using last season as a 'floor' for this season.

That said, not sure their estimations are so great...

88 wins for the Yanks, 83 for the Sawks, but only 82 for the Jays?

Pirates only 1 more win than the Cubs???

67 wins for the 'Stros?!?!?!?!?!?!11///1111/1/11

:lol:

Vegas also has us at 79 wins per the sports book. Personally I say 83, its time for the annual prediction contests.

Which Casino?

And is that the over/under or the prediction?

For me they need to be going in the right direction, and I feel they are. 2011 they played well until end of July. 2012 they were in it until end of August. I think this year we are looking at 85 wins, and are in Wild Card until the end. 2014 we make the playoffs.

I could live with that.

Welcome to the boards. :D

Meaningful baseball in September is what I view as a successful season. And that means a winning season. So, yes a .500+ season would be satisfying to me and I'd call it successful.
