i will take it one game at a time and hope for the best outcome.

]]>1995 = 100 wins

1996 = 99 wins

1997 = 86 wins

1998 = 89 wins

1999 = 97 wins

2000 = 90 wins

2001 = 91 wins

2002 = 74 wins

2003 = 68 wins

2004 = 80 wins

2005 = 93 wins

2006 = 78 wins

2007 = 96 wins

2008 = 80 wins

2009 = 65 wins

2010 = 69 wins

2011 = 80 wins

2012 = 68 wins

Since 1995, the Indians have averaged 86.22 wins per season in odd-numbered years and 80.78 wins in even-numbered years. That is worth about 5.5 additional wins. So if you analysis holds, then I think the Indians will win 86 games. I have said before that with this roster looks like a 77 game winner so adding in the odd-numbered year differential and the Indians win 82.
