96 - 1925 [pennant winner], 2012
94 - 1930
93 - 1932
92 - 1924 [World Series winner], 1931
91 - 1912
90 - 1913
87 - 1945
86 - 1969

THIS DAY WITH THE '05 OVERACHIEVERS: Thursday 29th September 2005 was a travel day, heading home for their final homestand against the Phillies...record 81-78.

For some reason, that number 96 (as in 96th win) has brought back an old '60's song, now running inexorably through my head:

You're goona cry 96 tears
You're gonna cry 96 tears
You're gonna cry, cry cry cry now
You're gonna cry 96 tears...
