    Would be cool, but I doubt it. They are going to start resting guys.

    HFA throughout is probably important to them, but it's not gonna take 100 wins to get there. 8-3 is not out of the question, but don't forget that we have to play the O's 6 times and they are the only team this season that has a positive W-L series record against us. Resting players in Colorado is another possibility. I predict them to finish with 6 more wins.

    We have been on a pretty long hot streak, and Farrell has also stated we are going to rest the starters as much as possible. Common sense would tell you we aren't going 8/3 to finish out the season.

    That said I hope we spank the O's, hard. Showalter is the grinch that stole the playoffs, and it would be nice if we could deal out some payback. If we go 6/5 those are the 6 games I want to win.

    I also agree that HFA is important. It's great for the Sox to be able to play any game 7 at home, if necessary. And 100 wins would be great and an 8-3 finish definitely doesn't seem beyond this team, even while resting some players.

    Could they? Yes. Will they? No

    Just win 99, and get the HFA throughout.


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    I think that the total is right. The more significant aspect of the Orioles games is that they are still in the WC hunt. They will be working HARD to win games in the first series and could still have incentive in the season finale. Losing 4/6 in those series would not surprise me.

    Magic number for HFA is 9.

    What Pittz said I agree with... but Farrell seems to make borderline unexplainable lineup decisions every week, so I wouldn't be shocked to see surprise benchings during the Orioles games.

    For the record:

    We play 3 games this week vs. Baltimore
    3 games this weekend vs. Toronto
    2 games next week vs. Colorado
    3 games next week vs. Baltimore.

    The schedule's easy enough for us to get 100 wins but I think we fall short and get 98 wins.
    Favourite Teams:

    Boston Red Sox: 5-8, games this week vs. Chicago White Sox (3), Baltimore (3)
    Indianapolis Colts: 11-5, 2013 AFC South Champs, great season guys.
    Looking for new NBA team to cheer for
    Ottawa Senators: 37-31-14, season over, good effort guys.

    i don't see us reaching 100 wins. i think if they clinch they are just going to rest some key guys. Also Facing the O's won't help either since they are still in it in the Wild Card race.

    I'm not sure I want HFA. Facing the Rays and potentially Price twice in a short series would suck. I'd rather face Oakland.
