Taking The A.L. East

Here are the amount of wins that were required to win the A.L. East the last nine years:

1996 - 89
1997 - 97
1998 - 93
1999 - 95
2000 - 86
2001 - 83
2002 - 94
2003 - 96
2004 - 99

The average here is 92. The average for the last three years is 96.

I think this season is going to fall in between the 92 and 96. To make a prediction, I'm going with 95 - that's how many wins it will take to win the A.L. East this season.

The Yankees will have to go fourteen and five in their remaining games to reach 95 wins this year.

I have to stop looking at this stuff now. It's nerve-racking.

Steve, you're really fixated on the number 5 lately, huh? =)

Kinda ironic, as it would be ring # 5 for Mo, Jeter and Bernie.

It's also been 5 years since they've last won a ring.
