How far over 100 wins will the Tigers finish?
How silly it sounds to ask that question. Afterall, this is the Tigers we're talking about. The team the holds the record for most losses by an AL team, only a few seasons ago. But if you break it down it would seem highly unlikely that this team wouldn't top the century mark. And top it easily.
A team that for so long was a benchmark for futility has so turned around it's fortunes that is has led to a 72-36 mark. Play .500 ball from here and end up with 99 wins. Unbelieveable as that sounds, it is more likely that they will play over .500 ball from here. I say 100 wins is a lock, the real question is how many more than 100 will they win?
I'm guessing 106. A heckova lot more than my original 83 win prediction.
