I personally like BP, but don't take these projections too seriously. If you go back, some are accurate, others are not. They get a couple playoff teams right. A couple of last place teams wind up in the post season. People should just take them for what they are.
Oh for the love of God. I don't think the Tigers are going to win 116 games. But they CAN win that many. I do feel 92 is awfully low. But the idea is there. I'm less concerned with the totals than I am where they are in relation to other teams. For instance, they have the Tigers 15 games better than us. I think that's pretty fair.
