Re: 2007 Reds Armchair GM
I actually did a bit of forecasting to see how my constructed team would fare.
Anyway, here's my forecast for the team I dreamed up. It's not perfect or professional by any stretch of the imagination, but I think it's actually pretty solid.
Here's a fairly conservative look at the production I would expect:
Given this level of production by the players, by my calculations, the team that I "created" would score 755 Runs and, when you factor in the defense, they'd allow 688 Runs. Which, when you plug it into Bill James's Pythagorean Theorem, gives you winning percentage of .546 and a record of 89-73. So, take it with a grain of salt, but I don't think it would be a bad team by any stretch of the imagination.
