    After all the pre season hype the sox are in fact poised to win 100

    Theo, Tito and the sox would love to accomplish something that has not happened since 1946.  Don't be fooled by the nonchalant aw shucks talking points uttered by sox management, they want this!  If they can go 17-10 the rest of the way it will happen.  I put the odds at about 75/25.  Your thoughts?

    Not going to happen this year.  very tough schedule for the Sox for the rest of the regular season.  standing at 83-52, 27 games are remaining.  13 of them away againt east division teams. (Blue Jays 4 games series, 3 each against remaining east division teams)  Red Sox has been very good on the road but those 13 road games are very tough games especially postseason getting near and with the roster expansion, once the Sox clinches wild card, Tito will try to protect his best players for the playoff by getting them some rest and play call-ups and bench players.  Actually, except playing Rangers at Fenway for 3 game series, 24 games are against AL east teams which are over .500 winning % except O's. 

    TEX HOME3
    TOR AWAY4
    TB AWAY3
    TOR HOME2
    TB HOME4
    BAL HOME4
    NYY AWAY3
    BAL AWAY3

    I see the Sox winning 98-99 games this year.

    I don't think that 100 wins is the target, winning the division means a lot more than winning 100 if they can do both, all the better...Much depends on how the schedule breaks from here on...17-10 is certainly doable even with thier current schedule...

    Let's just for gigges assume we go 7-0 vs the Orioles, we then would only have to play .500 agaisnt the rest...

    After starting out 2-10, the Sox are poised to win 100.  That'll be a winning percentage of .653 over 150 games.

    The sox own the east.  They get 100 wins if ny keeps it close.  If they wrap up the division early they will rest and coast to the post season.

    Maybe if they hadn't started the season so poorly, it would be a lot easier to win 100 games.  Hopefully, next season they will have a better start.

    They will still possibly win the most games in the Theo Epstein/Terry Francona era regardless of whether it is 100 or not.  I believe the high water mark is 98 wins since 2002(2004).  in order to accomplish this they would need to go 16-10(to finish with 99 wins the most since 1978) which is a winning percentage of .615.  Even assuming extra rest for the starting position players and less starts for Beckett, Lester, Lackey and Bedard, this is definately doable.

    Hate away, any "jinx" garbage was excised in 2004, if you don't get that I have the names of several great therapists!
