I found his statistic about the first 10 games of the season as a prediction of making the playoffs interesting. He said there is an 80pct chance of making the playoffs if a team wins 7 of their first 10. If a team loses 7 of their first 10 there is a 20% chance of making the playoffs.

Here's one just for us:

Who would you rather have: Hunter, Rowand, or Swisher? (http://actasports.com/sow.php?id=161)

Meh, I don't see a big deal. It's not to say that your team starting 3-7 means they'll miss the playoffs, but that good teams tend to have good starts and bad teams tend to have bad starts. Not exactly a revelation.
