Revised PECOTA Puts Yankees in 1st.

The PECOTA predictions that we looked at yesterday were apparently wrong. They had the Yankees in 3rd in the AL East while the Rays held down 1st. Baseball Prospectus released a revised version of PECOTA and here is how it looks now.





I really don't expect a tie to be the outcome; a close race with the Yankees coming out on top, perhaps.

PECOTA Puts Yanks in 3rd

Baseball Prospectus has come out with their annual PECOTA projections and Yankee fans will not be pleased. Here is the AL East:






You could just say the nerds who live in their mother's basement have no idea what the hell they are talking about but here at the Chuck Knoblog we love and appreciate stats. PECOTA still has the Yankees churning out the most runs score by a lot and the highest OBP and slugging. So the offensive juggernaut that is the Yankee offense is projected to keep on kicking ass.

With only 20 days until pitchers and catchers report, baseball can start to take hold of our mind yet again.

Hmm...

Baseball Prospectus' PECOTA projections came out today, and the Yankees are projected to win the AL East with a 103-59 record, with the Red Sox two games back at 101-61. Now, these projections are in an ideal season, and no season is ever ideal. Also, it is highly unlikely that two teams in the same division win over 100 games, but PECOTA is still a valid projection system, so this does mean something.
