Most years it would but this year the second wild card winner won 96 games, last year the second wild card winner won 97 games.

And while I know you are not advocating for this (and I'm not sure anyone here is) I think the idea of building a team that can win 80-85 games and hope for some lucky breaks is a bad idea and what led to the disappointments of 2015 and 2016.

Jim Margalus had a great post this morning about the season and where things stand with the rebuild (the positives, the negatives and why some people are anxious). https://www.soxmachine.com/2019/09/3...ier-heres-how/
