The 2012 MLB Projection Blowout - ZiPS Edition

Dan Szymborski’s ZiPS projections are generally considered one of the best around.  Dan does a lot of work with his own projected standings and other things at ESPN.  You can see his AL and NL projections there if you’re an Insider.

Projecting the National League

Since I’m not an insider, I used Dan’s projectons to run my own standings.  As with PECOTA, these should be considered unofficial.

Hey, check it out -- nobody's commented yet! You could be the first to comment on this AWESOME post! Hurry up and think of something to say! And not "First!", or anything like that, because that would be lame, and you'd be lame for doing it. Especially if someone beats you to it.

Well, since you spent so much time reading this, you've probably missed your shot to be first, but go ahead and post anyway. Someone might read it. Not ME, but someone.
