If you look at the entire season in nine (9) game segments you would have what is considered eighteen (18) series. As a ball club you would look to win those 18 series (5W-4L) and this would give you a total of ninety (90) wins and a legit shot at the playoffs.
Of those 18 series (of 9 Games), eight (8) ( 72 Games) will come against the AL East. Wins and losses do not come in a vacuum so some of those wins would also bring the "Elite" east teams back to you.
