11-8 needed to get 100 wins now.
But where are those 11 coming from?
All of them teams fighting for survival. Playing with a sense of urgency. I'm sure we will play every game hard, and every game to win. But there really isn't a sense of urgency. Winning 100 is not the same motivation as making the playoffs. Neither is best record, when in many peoples' view that will be a disadvantage.
So if we are going to win 11 games, tell me where they are coming from.
I would say the best we will do is:
of the six with Atlanta and LA: 3 wins
Brewers: 2 of 4
Phillies: 3 of 6
Cardinals: 1 of 3
9 of 19, best. That's 98 wins, still a great season.
