He is a Tigers fan. And he hasn't written for BPro in, what, four years? And they've completely overhauled PECOTA since he left.
Did they outperform pythag?
Colin Wyers, however, is a Cubs fan.
but I really can't figure out what this guy thinks "Nate" (or me) would get out of cooking the books to slant the numbers against the White Sox on purpose.
Didn't we discuss this a week ago?
So he wanted to get back at notorious homophobe Ozzie Guillen.
+20 wins over Pytahg from 2005-2011. Only one season under pythag, and that was just -1.
Thats actually pretty impressive. Kevin Towers/Kirk Gibson, eat your heart
If you want to outperform your Pythagorean record, the best thing to do is to find a really crappy pitcher and put him in the game whenever you are down by a bunch of runs. That way you add to your runs against without changing any outcomes.
This explains why the Dbacks have Adam Eaton on the roster. But in typical wacky Dback style they hired the wrong Adam Eaton.
What if you eliminated blowouts (say, 6+ runs) from the Pythag projections? Would there be a significant difference?
