AL projected Standings
Using the CHONE projections, and what I currently assume will be each team's lineup. All trades, signings up to today are considered.
Red Sox 92-70
Blue Jays 83-79
Right now I'm assuming that Curt Schilling does little for the Red Sox in light of his injury concerns. If Schilling were 100% they'd be 94-95 wins. They are unlikely to push Buchholz and Lester for 180-200 innings each, so I'm assuming significant innings for some not so good pitchers. Devil Rays? WTF? My projections are kind of boring for the AL, not much different than last years, except for this. I'll have to explain in more detail in another post sometime. Orioles are the worst team in the league, I have little doubt about that.
White Sox 76-86
Nothing to see here, looks like last year. Should be a pretty good fight with the East teams for the 3 available playoff spots.
Here's hoping nothing unexpected happens.
I hope the National League has a few more bold prediciton opportunities.
