And 14 of the 20 are on the road. Also, the final 17 are played on consecutive days.
How many wins do you think we'll get? And as a tiebreaker, how many runs will we score in the 20 games?
The competition:3 at CLEoff day3 vs MIN3 vs MIL4 at SF3 at LA4 at SD
I predict 12 wins and 85 runs.
By the way this 11 game west coast trip is a rarity...we haven't even had a 10-gamer since 2006.
And the most recent time I could find where we played 11 straight in California was 1990. We went 3-8 on the trip.

Well I only see one team there that scares me: the Dodgers. I'll be aggressive and say 14 wins and 87 runs scored.
It all depends on which pitchers we face. Doubt if we sweep Cleveland again, but I won't be surprised if we get sweeps against the Brewers and the Twins, and it would be great if we swept the Padres too.
If we can win 2 against the Dodgers it will make a statement
I hate making predictions, but I'll play anyway. I prefer talking about what I see rather than what I imagine.
I'll go with 10 wins 59 runs. A .500 roadtrip would have to be considered successful.
