In this case the Community is dead-center of expectation, with an identical OPS to PECOTA, and just four points higher than my own projection. As is frequently the case, James is the most optimistic. Shandler is the most pessimistic in this example.
I have some thoughts I'm going to be laying out about how to look at all these different systems. I'll have that up later this week.
