Baseball Prospectus AL Predictions

The twelve main writers for BP made their American League predictions today (free article). The Rays were predicted to finshed last with an average finish of 4.58th place. The only other Rays-related prediction was for ROY where Kazmir was named on two ballots.

In a stark contrast to last year's BP predictions, when I believe the Rays were universally picked to finish last, they had some optimism from three writers. Nate Silver picked them to finish fourth, ahead of Toronto, while James Click and Keith Woolner both picked them as third.

Kazmir was third on Jay Jaffe's ballot and second on Woolner's.

Chris Karhl named them the Devil Fishies on her ballot, a nickname obviously meant to be condescending but one I actually like.
