Expected Wins by the Baltimore Orioles using Five Projections (6/25/2013)
It has been over a month since I last reviewed the different models. The models using preseason projection models (mJS and BP) are slowly moving upward in the 80 wins territory while the other models as rolling backwards. They all appear to be converging into the mid 80s. One thing to note that since May 13th, the Orioles’ pitching has been near replacement level having only earned 0.2 fWAR. Their past month and a half has been fully on the shoulders of the team’s bats.
Baseball Prospectus‘ playoff probability of the team continues to increase: 5% -> 6.5% ->7.9% -> 11% -> 16.4% -> 22.9% -> 28.1% -> 30.9%.
