Always interesting when Baseball Prospectus uses their PECOTA system to project the standings. Click here to take a look, and consider subscribing if you haven’t.
PECOTA sees the Yankees winning the AL East and the Angels taking the AL West. They have the Indians and Tigers playing a tiebreaker for the AL Central and the Red Sox as the league’s wild card entry.
As for the NL, the Mets take the East. The Cubs win the Central, while the D’Backs and Dodgers tie for the West. The wild card would be the Brewers. BP’s Nate Silver discusses the standings a bit more here.
Will Carroll and I recently chatted it up on Baseball Prospectus radio. As you might imagine, we talked hot stove and things of that nature. You can get the mp3 here.
