PECOTA Talk

PECOTA has the Twins projected for 93.4 which is 4th highest (LA, NYY, and HOU ahead of us) and has us handily winning the division, beating out Cleveland by 7.3 games and Chicago by 10.9 games.

 

I have two main questions. First to other Baseball Prospectus subscribees. When do individual projections get released. I've just been subscribed for 8 months or so, so this is my first PECOTA day. I assume all the projection stuff is behind the paywall, or is some of it public access (side question: do different BP Subscription levels get you access to different amounts of projection data?)

 

And this leads me to my second question, which is for the moderators....

 

Is the stuff I've shared so far acceptable? I made sure to only share stuff that's super findable on social media. I assume it's a nuanced discussion about sharing enough to have discussions about the info, but not so much that the paywall gets compromised.

What you've shared is totally fine. We mostly draw the line at copy-and-paste of extended content from behind a paywall, not discussing the results/merit of that content.

 

Discussing this kind of thing only brings awareness to the extended content behind the paywall, which encourages more people to check it out.

While the spreadsheet still has Maeda on the Dodgers, they have him as a far more valuable player (WARP) than Berrios.

 

50th percentile results:

Maeda - 3.6 WARP

Berrios - 1.6 WARP (Basically the same as Pineda and Odorizzi)

 

So obviously PECOTA is pretty down on Jose. 

Worth noting that WARP is really high on Kenta Maeda, far beyond even FIP / fWAR, and has been for some time.

 

Maeda's career marks to date

 

WARP: 15.4

fWAR: 9.6

bWAR: 5.2

 

I'd be interested to know what components (park, league, defense) are most responsible for that discrepancy.

 

Also, Berrios has been worth 2.9, 2.4, and 2.1 WARP going back the last 3 years -- how do they project him to only 1.6 for 2020, his age 26 season? Fangraphs projects him to 3.1 but that's based on the last 3 years of 4.4, 3.1, and 2.7 -- so they're not buying on 2019, but they're not expecting him to go backward from 2018 or 2017 either.

Then I guess I was also.   I like Berrios but his value seems to be that he can go an inning or so more than the other two.   Not that the innings he does pitch are better than the ones Odo especially but also Pineda pitch.   That ability to go 7 instead of 6 just doesn't have the same value it used to especially when we have a good bull pen.   The value of Berrios maybe went up a tick when we lost Graterol because I had a good feeling about him coming in for an inning or two and doing better than average for both a major league reliever and more specifically better than our bullpen average.  If anything I am more confident in Odorizzi shutting someone down.    All this to say I am not surprised he is lumped with Odorizzi and Pineda.   I am shocked to see how highly rated Maeda is.

That is interesting.What is their prediction for Odo??

I was most interested to see where the White Sox fell when these win projections started coming out. 

 

82.5 for them this year seems about right but I'd probably still bet the under on that one. 

 

Also, Detroit at 69.5 seems insane to me, I'd be shocked if they hit that.
