OK, now we have something interesting.
The Community Projection is more optimistic than what other systems are showing, particularly in the slugging percentage department, although curiously it is less optimistic about his steal totals. Note that I have adjusted the steal totals per rate at the projected 500 at-bats.
My projection, PECOTA/Prospectus, Shandler's Forecaster, and James are all fairly close to each other. ZIPS is a bit more optimistic.
So, is the Community picking up something that the other systems are missing? Or did we just have a lot of Mets fans post yesterday?
