    If you were able to get a straight answer, I think the number would be closer to 70 wins. (68-75 wins)
    71 wins would be .438
    I see the Jays losing 100 or more games this year. Pitching is at best suspect, apparently Vlady jr. will be ready for the majors in May sometime, and when they bring him up will they have anyone in the lineup to protect him? I hate what I am seeing as it looks to me like they have created a team designed to lose. Smoak and Morales plus possibly Pillar may be the leaders on this team. Hope I am wrong but it looks like a long year to me.

    You mean like they will be going deep into the playoffs.

    62-100 is .382 ball, a significant stretch from 49-113.
    As bad as the Orioles are slated to be this season, I'd be surprised if they lost 113 games.

    Exactly LOL I guess the good news is I won't be spending a lot of money buying tickets and travelling to Toronto. Would like to see Vlady jr play a game or two but other than that, barring a miracle, wont be much to care about!

    I think Baltimore will have a better record than the Jays this season. Both will fail to win 65 games.

    I shine and rise at the same time.

    Oddsmakers have pegged Baltimore's win total this year at O/U 58.5, Toronto's O/U 75.5
    An opportunity to make some money for you there, K Douglas.

    Lol - you are not the only one who made that prediction!! I just wish I was the guy who placed the $85,000 bet that Tiger would win this years Masters and won $1.2 million - not a bad return.

    As the maxim goes, do not bet more than you are willing to lose. Unlike most of the posters here, I am not in a position to risk $85,000.

    And to think I agreed with him.
    When I die, I hope I have enough time to point at a complete stranger and whisper "You did this."

    Given how well he played on the tour last season I never would have made that prediction. Did I think he'd win the Masters? No. Could he have won the Bridgestone or the Arnold Palmer? Heck ya.

    If I were a betting man I would have pounded the under on the Blue Jays win total.

    Now that I think of it, strictly speaking I am not yet wrong with that prediction.

    This week's PGA field has 132 players which is more than 50% more than the 84 that teed off at Augusta. Super talented field obviously, but not close to a full field which was my criterion.
    Which pga tournaments are full field events?

    Almost all of them. Masters has a limited field.

    As for the other majors: U.S. Open has 156, British is also 156, and same number for PGA Championship.

    Even when Tiger won the Tour Championship last year, there was only a field of 30.
