Hold off on that BP coronation
Remember a few days ago when Baseball Prospectus' PECOTA projections tabbed the Rays to win the AL East with an MLB-best 96 victories?
Turns out even the stats experts make mistakes. And after discovering and correcting some errors in computation, they've put up adjusted standings - and the Rays don't fare as well this time.
With the corrected numbers, the Red Sox and Yankees both finish at 93-69, and the Rays just miss the playoffs at 92-70.
The projections will be adjusted throughout the spring based on developments such as trades and injuries.
