Looking back at PECOTA

About This Episode

We start by talking about projection systems in general, then dive into 2017 PECOTA team projections. We look to see how adding in actual playing time affects the team totals. Then we talk about individual players that out-performed and under-performed their PECOTA projections.

This Week I Learned:

  • Harry learns that "bullpenning" is a thing, sort of, maybe, kind of. (h/t Matt Trueblood)
  • Kendall learns to make adjustments in parenting, just like hitters like Mike Trout have had to make adjustments to high fastballs. (h/t to Jeff Sullivan)
