*1972 A's (93-62), 1981 Dodgers (63-47), 1995 Braves (90-54) played in strike shortened seasons; adjusted win totals based on W-L% over 162 game season

With their division-clinching win today, the Giants moved into the most prevelant win slot on this chart with 92 wins.  The Phillies (97 wins) are also in a good position, but that position is slightly worse than the Giants' based on one of those teams (1972 A's) having their W-L% adjusted in a strike shortened season and the fact that it hasn't happened at 97 wins since the early 70's. 

It's not much, but the Giants need everything going in their favor to win their first World Series since moving to San Francisco in 1958.
