85 wins...

Not sure it's worth a diary post in and of itself but I started looking at the rest of the season's schedule and came up with what seemed like a realistic 25 additional wins - putting our boys at 85 by year's end.

Boy, I'd sure like to have had a few more back from this road trip. Moving from 85 to 88 would be a hole lot more comfortable, but again, the 25 I'm hoping for is still many days away.

In looking at the Brewers schedule they could easily have another 24 wins left, putting them at 86.

I'm not a doomsday kind of guy, heck I cheer for the Cubs, but it'd be great to see our boys in blue show me that they've got some fire in them and beat some folks up on this upcoming home stand.

Quick notes: glad to see Ward back, my heart goes out to the Floyd family, very nice defense JJ, and stay away from thin air Rich and Kerry.
