The Sox have overperformed something like 50 games over the last 4 or 5 years according to BP forecast. The Sox would have been in last a couple times and fourth a couple times if these projections were even remotely accurate. The BP machine says the Sox will not have 1 starting pitcher with a winning record this year, this after a year with a winning record, Danks coming back, not too many lineup changes, etc. Maybe the big predictor machine is broke is all a lot of us are saying. If they are so accurate , according to you, on individual player projections, why does the big computer suck so bad at predicting records?

This must be what talking to a wall feels like
