2010 Pecota Projections!!!

Pecota Projections are upon us http://baseballprospectus.com/fantasy/dc/. To my surprise our white cleated beauties are projected as front runners in the AL West finishing with a record of 87-75, one game ahead of the Seamen (86-76). The A’s are projected to have the third lowest runs scored (737) and the second lowest runs allowed (737) in the AL. The teams triple slash line is projected to be .263/.342/.418. Other notable projections have the Angels in last (76-86), the Yankees in third (93-69) and my personal favorite the Giants (81-81) finishing third in the NL West.

Interpret these projections how you like. Of course there are a variety of things that could happen to any team to change the course of their season, especially the A’s (Sheets, Duke).

With the standard deviation in these projections to be around 9 (not positive), the A’s have a solid chance to be an above .500 team.

 

Do you think the A’s can make a run at the division this year? Will Beane ship players at the deadline or go for a playoff birth?

Analyze, criticize, and argue
