I'll make some predictions.  It's not like I can jinx my team any more than they already are (by having me as their owner):


$70M Theme - BRAVE STRANGERS - 70 Wins


$80M Theme - A WING AND A PRAYER - 75 Wins


$90M Theme - 2009 ST. LOUIS CARDINALS - 75 Wins


$100M Theme - 2002:  BOS / TEX / LAD / MIL / MON - 82 Wins


$110M Theme - THE SILVER BULLETS - 42 Wins

 
$120M Theme - FOUR-LEAF CLONER (Mordecai Brown, Mariano Rivera, Rogers Hornsby and Bill Dickey) - 87 Wins (and my only possible playoff team)


(and to think - the above predictions are me being hopeful...lol)

 

 
 

REALITY:


$70M Theme - BRAVE STRANGERS - 76 Wins - Not too far off.

$80M Theme - A WING AND A PRAYER - 64 Wins - Much worse than I thought.

$90M Theme - 2009 ST. LOUIS CARDINALS - 67 Wins - Worse than I thought.

$100M Theme - 2002: BOS / TEX / LAD / MIL / MON - 86 Wins - Again, not too far off (my only team to make the playoffs).

$110M Theme - THE SILVER BULLETS - 81 Wins - A heck of a lot better than I thought - but still not even close to sniffing the playoffs.

$120M Theme - FOUR-LEAF CLONER (Mordecai Brown, Mariano Rivera, Rogers Hornsby and Bill Dickey) - 65 Wins  - possible playoff team, my butt.  I consider this team to be fortunate to have won 65 games.  My Mordecai's were pitching on fumes for the entire second half of the season.


Overall, not too far from what I thought - I've got a long way to go before I can ever see myself getting near the "Cage"...
