Hey everybody, this is going to be short and sweet (unlike my typical monstrous previews) because I have to devote most of my blogging time to the site that's actually paying me, but I thought I should keep the streak going and, for the 4th straight year, record my surely-wrong projected MLB standings for posterity. As always, these were generated using computer-projected stats for every player, so it's not like I'm biased against any team or anything (Die, Yankees, Die!!!)... And this means that if your fave team looks bad, it's the cold hard numbers talking and you can feel free to write it off as such -- sometimes they get it right, sometimes they get it wrong, and there's always something to disagree with. Anyway, here are the projections:
