BP just released this year's PECOTA projections: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/ar...rticleid=19602
According to their team depth charts
, they have the Reds down for 92-70, tied for the 2nd best record in MLB with the Yankees and Tigers. The Dodgers come in #1 at 93-69.
The Cards come in 2nd in the NL Central as just 84-78.
I found the visual depth chart
a really cool way to quickly compare teams.
When I put their mean projections in to my projection spreadsheet, I came out with 89 wins.
Here are some fun comps that I noticed:
Devin Mesoraco: Matt Wieters, Joe Torre & Miguel Montero
Joey Votto: Norm Cash, Miggy Cabrera & Mark Teixeira
Todd Frazier: Chase Headley
Jack Hannahan: Brook Jacoby
Jay Bruce: Frank Robinson (Jay is an old 26...)
Mat Latos: Jered Weaver & Felix Herandnez
Homer Bailey: Matt Garza (Cueto also got a Garza comp)
Aroldis Chapman: Herb Score
Sean Marshall: Ryan Madson
Tony Cingrani: Briad Matusz & Scott Kazmir
Manny Parra: Casey Fossum & Steve Carlton
