What was that about the Yankees coming in third?

Oh happy day. SG’s 2010 Diamond Mind Projection Blowout for both the AL and NL was posted yesterday. For those unfamiliar, this is an aggregate of five noteworthy projection systems, run 1,000 times each for a total of 5,000 iterations.

The Yankees unsurprisingly project to be the best team in baseball, averaging 96 wins and 66 losses. Eat it, PECOTA. They also project to score the most runs in the Majors — 895 — and should have a 63% chance of making the playoffs.

Is it Opening Day yet?

  1. NICE! I feel bad for folks that pay for PECOTA. How many times can you change your results and still be credible? And don't they release a print book of their numbers? what version of their results are in the book? Just terrible; but I think we've slammed them enough off season.
