    What is pythagorean winning percentage?


    (Runs Scored)^1.83
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    (Runs Scored)^1.83 + (Runs Allowed)^1.83

    The traditional formula uses an exponent of two, but this has proven to be a little more accurate.
    Can't win with 'em

    Can't win without 'em

    Oh Pyth, it's just a theory. Reds grab Tim Redding on waivers at the end of spring training. The light finally goes on in his head. Cincinnati laughs all the way to the bank depositing a 92-70 season and collecting a receipt for one brand spanking new 2005 Central division title.

    83 - 79, even though I am less optimistic after watching the pitching at ST.
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.

    I was thinking 68-94 for most of the winter, but I got all spring fevery the past few days and went with 74-88. Honestly, I'm feeling a little light-headed from the experience.

    Big offense this spring and questions from other NL Central teams swing a few W's our way IMO.

    Out of sincere curiosity, are those determining their record prediction on Pythag expecting the Reds to perform at, below or above like they did last year. It is one thing to say Pythag predicts about a 76-86 record, another thing to say that Pythag is not precise, there IS a margin of error, and the Reds have outperformed it in the past... precedents out the wazoo!
