By OPS

Community: .772
Sickels Exp: .747
ZIPS BTT: .736
Bill James: .733
Forecaster: .731
Prospectus: .716

I have to admit the Community result surprised me a bit; we had quite a few optimistic projections. My own projection is fairly optimistic, but still 25 OPS points down from the Community. ZIPS, James, and Forecaster are all clustered together, with Prospectus being the pessimist outlier. Their PECOTA system, in fact, estimates a 46% chance that Burroughs will "collapse" this year.

Burroughs is still only 24, and the age curve should work in his favor. "Should". . .it's not a guarantee.
