Predicting The Season

We look at where teams will finish this year and

For this year's predictions on how each team will finish, we've turned to our friends at FanGraphs, who have used their proprietary system to break down the batting, fielding and pitching of each team. This data is the aggregation of thousands of projections of individual players, and for each category it's expressed as runs above average.

All those projections are then used to predict win totals for each team based on those numbers. Like any set of projections, they shouldn't be treated as gospel, but they do give you a good breakdown of a team's potential strengths and weaknesses.
