September 17, 2008 question

People are searching for Britney Spears. That's what the Guinness Book of World Records says, anyway, naming her the Most Searched Person in 2008. This boggles my mind . . . not that people are interested in Britney, but that any searching whatsoever was required to feed their curiosity. Searching for Britney online is like searching for stink in a county fair port-o-potty.

But facts are facts, so let's move on to them. The last Cubs no-hitter was thrown by Carlos Zambrano on Sunday, which Steve T (the T stands for Too Easy), Paul C (the C stands for Captain Carlos), Larry, Andrew, Mike K (the K stands for Strikeout), Nancy K (the K stands for King Z), Cindy, Karen H (the H stands for Hitless Wonders), Heidi, and Robbie. They get 7 points for scoring that touchdown, while H. E. and Mathias tack on a field goal by naming the previous Cub to throw a no hitter, Milt Pappas. So there are a lot of you with seven, a couple of you with three, and a wide-open opportunity right now to rack up more points. Here's today's question:

The AL East-leading Tampa Bay Rays have won 89 games this year; how many did they LOSE in the 2007 season?
