    I thought the 2008 Phillies did it but this sounds like a trick type of question.

      Not the Phillies (92 wins) and not a trick question. Just a much longer time ago than I would have reasonably thought.


      The only "tricky" part is that the Braves would likely have surpassed 95 wins in a full 1995 season (90 wins with 18 games to go).

            Correct. Nine straight NL World Series Champs have won 92 games or less. Since the 1979 Pirates, the 86 Mets are the only NL WS winner with more than 94 wins.

              even without the years just hearing the names of the franchises tell you how long this was ago (no offense to those teams fans I hope you will do better soon)
              I now have my own non commercial blog about training for batspeed and power using my training experience in baseball and track and field.

                Well, if not for the short season the 1995 Braves would have won more than 95 games.
