Pythagorean winning percentage is an estimate of a team’s winning percentage given their runs scored and runs allowed. Many believe that the difference between the team’s actual wins and the team’s pythagorean wins is a matter of luck.
The difference between the Yankees actual wins and their pythagorean wins, right now, is minus six.
So, in your opinion which 6 of the Yankees 39 losses, to date, were because of bad luck? Please list them in the comments section below. Thanks in advance for your help with this exercise.
