Projections are fun, but projections can both be very biased and very difficult.
Today was the first iteration of the PECOTA major league standings, and the Rays are one of only five teams projected to 90-wins next season, joining the Indians, Mets, Cubs, and Dodgers. Don't get your hopes too high, but that's a wonderful early sign.
Just as important than one systems projection, however, is what you think. How close did PECOTA get? Would you rather trust Steamer? Did you notice the PECOTA standings are 12 wins above .500 across baseball? Projections are hard!
Corey Kluber says no one gets any awards for projections, but you might! At the behest of Jason Hanselman, we've decide to host a little competition.
