Thanks to Evans Clinchy, I saw that Baseball Prospectus has released their annual Player Empirical Comparison and Optimization Test Algorithm (PECOTA) projections for the upcoming season. And, while I was looking at the PECOTA standings, and clicked on the Yankees, this question popped up:
Why does PECOTA have the Yankees projected to slug .424 as a team in 2009?
Could the reason be the fact that the Yankees, as a team, slugged .427 last year? I dunno. What do you think?
