    With 60 games I put the Over and Under break point at 31 games. I'll take the over.

    I'm liking the over too, but not by much. 32 wins, 33 tops.

    I think the Sox can get into the high 30's --37, 38, 39

    The White Sox are young enough this 60 game schedule is like playing in a summer league - for the scouts to notice you.

    I won't believe over .500 until I see it. However, only one decent winning streak should be all that is needed to get there in such a short schedule. We'll have a good idea a few weeks from now.

    Depends on what you mean by being optimistic. 32-33 wins pretty much prorates to the my original preseason prediction of 87 wins when we all thought there would be a 162 game campaign. I stated back then from the getgo that I felt the Sox would not make the playoffs, even when it was assumed to be a full season. As in close, but no cigar. I haven't changed that opinion, but I also feel this is really going to be a year where anything goes. We could end up dead last, we could win the whole enchilada. I honestly have no pulse on this season at all.

    40 is asking a ton out of this team...

    We have 33 games this year vs teams that were over .500 last year (10 each against Minny and Cleveland...and then 13 spread between Cubs/Brewers/Cardinals)

    27 games against some really dog teams...which is big for us. (10 each vs KC/DET...then 7 split between Pitt and Cin)

    Let's say we go over .500 vs. the better teams listed...17-16.

    We'd have to go 23-4 vs. the dog teams in that scenario........as a young team that is going to be streaky.

    I'd be surprised...but yeah...Having 20 games vs. Detroit and KC alone is a huge advantage for record...but it's one shared by the Indians and Twins as well.

    16 of our first 22 games are vs the winner teams (Minny/Cleveland/Milw/STL). We'll know within the first few weeks where this is going.



    Of course, these numbers may be skewed by the Grandal factor...because Milwaukee is probably utter sh*t right now after losing that juggernaut. Their locker room is probably full of piss and vinegar. Probably have a new manager by midseason with the fallout.

    Cincy is good. So, definitely not including them. Pretty even split, though. I think our schedule is pretty damn average. I don't know how good Cleveland or the Cubs are right now relative to past years.

    Cincy has the best starting rotation in the NL Central and their 1-9 lineup has improved during the offseason. A number of predictions out there have them taking their division. So I agree, I definitely wouldn't label them whatsoever with the Royals, Tigers, and Pirates.

    I never bet against the Cardinals. But if Cincy is good thats not helping a case for anywhere near 40 wins

    Thaaaaaank yoooouuuuu. You know many damn posts i had to read before i figured out which sox? The white sox are the biggest wild card in the division. I could see them winning anywhere between 15-40. Seriously. Cleveland will be around .500. Detroit will suck hard. You guys could contend for the division or chill with the tigers.

    We will not be as bad as the Tigers. I am one of the bigger skeptics on this board but if we’re that bad I would be shocked.
