The 2012 MLB Projection Blowout - PECOTA Edition

Originally developed by Nate Silver, who’s moved on to bigger things, PECOTA from Baseball Prospectus has in the past been considered one the best projection systems.  Since Silver left they have had a few issues, but it’s now in the hands of Colin Wyers who is one of the best baseball analysts around, so I’d expect it to be pretty good again.  Baseball Prospectus runs their own projected standings, so these should NOT be considered what PECOTA is projecting.  It’s more what PECOTA is projecting using my depth charts for all the other projections.  The difference shouldn’t be more than a couple of games in either direction for the most part.  Also, run environments and park factors may not match up, which means the runs scored/allowed here don’t line up with the official PECOTA version.  So these should not be construed as anything other than unofficial.

Here’s how this version of the projected standings shape up.

PECOTA really really likes Pac Man, I mean the Rangers, more than any other projection does.
