A Bit of Dodgers History

The 2017 Dodgers will probably set a new franchise record for regular season wins. The Dodgers are one of the few great NL franchises, and yet they have won 100 or more games only 6 times in their history, never more than 105 in a season, and only once (1974) have won 100 games in a 162-game season. They have never won the World Series after a 100-win regular season. To me, this clarifies how hard it is to get to 100 wins: a storied franchise with 133 seasons and 22 pennants at the close of 2016 has reached 100 wins 4.5 percent of the time.

The Yankees have 19 100-win seasons, by the way, but even they got past 105 wins only 3 times before the start of the 162-game schedule.
