Yikes. Vegas has the Baltimore line at 103 losses.

The Brewers over/under odds for wins via Ceasers have gone from opening at 83.5 to now reportedly up to 88.5 wins in less than a week.

The projections on the Fangraphs site show Arcia as being a below average defender.

The Brewers are projected to have fewer wins than the Twins but are 4 times more likely to win the World Series. That tells you about the impact of difference in quality between the NL Central and most other divisions.

I like fan graphs but they can be a bit “behind the times” sometimes. They never really figured out how to value high leverage relief like most of the league did several years ago. Anyway, it goes to show you how unconventional the brewers actually are with their pitching.

They are stuck as long as Angelos is alive.

Latest odds have 9 of the 13 most likely World Series champions coming from the NL (with the Brewers tied for 9th overall and tied for 5th in the NL). It's going to be a wild year, especially in the NL Central and NL East.

As others have noted the Fangraphs projected standings do not yet have the ZiPS projections factored in. The current standings are based on Steamer projections, but will eventually also include ZiPS.

Dan Szymborski is the proprietor of the ZiPS projections. ZiPS data has not yet been released for the Brewers. In his Fangraphs chat today Dan added the following:

tim
The brewers are currently projected to finish last in the NL Central in 2019, according to the projected standings page. Do you buy that they will be closer to the Reds and the Pirates than they will be to the Cardinals and the Cubs?

Dan Szymborski
I think they'll be closer to the Cardinals and Cubs.
Like last year, ZiPS likes the Brewers more than Steamer.

Are there any of the other teams who won their division in 2018 projected to not win their division in 2019? Let alone go from 1st to last in their division??

Once you factor in the recent adjustment for fangraphs projections of being biased negative by at least 15 wins, the brewers probably fall right where they should in terms of a 90ish win team projection in a very competitive yet hardly wart-free division

The projections hosted at FanGraphs currently have the Braves at 82 wins, 10 wins behind the Nationals & 3 wins behind the Mets.

I find those projections to be a bit insane considering the young talent the Braves have. I know the Nationals have an elite rotation and are solid overall, and the Mets have improved...still seems crazy to project the Braves that low.

Projections typically struggle the most with young players (less of a track record to draw from) & defense/relief pitching (higher year to year variation).

Teams who are counting on a lot of value coming from those particular areas will generally be under-projected.

Earlier in the thread I talked about Steamer, projections in general and how ZiPS and PECOTA would be interesting to follow. I also expected those systems to like the Brewers more. But now with PECOTA projections out, I'm a bit surprised at how much more positive they are. Win totals are down, but that's more to do with the entire division projected at .500 or better, it's going to be a real bloodbath!

The interesting thing about the Brewers individual projections is that none of them seem unrealistically high. The pitching ones are, as they tend to be, fairly conservative. Interesting to see that they expect Brandon Woodruff to be our most valuable pitcher in terms of WARP. Also noteworthy that they project the Brewers to have the 2nd best defense in the majors (Behind Cleveland) in terms of FRAA.

My personal favourite baseball writer of all time Jeff Sullivan leaving FG for the Rays.

Follows Cistulli to the Jays, Cameron to the Padres, Fagerstrom to the Brewers & other FG contributors to score MLB front office gigs.

Great for Jeff but really stinks as he was a terrific writer. Was one of the first (only?) to see a change in stats and then look to the film to see if there was a mechanical reason behind it. Perfect blend of scouting and stats. Hope he does well for the Rays.

Jeff was excellent at covering baseball with the perfect balance of analysis and lightheartedness. I’m sad to see him go. Very happy for him, but really going to miss his articles and Effectively Wild co-host appearances.

FanGraphs Staff Predictions are out & they have us ostensibly tying with STL for the division, so I hope they are a reliable website (though an outright division win would of course be preferable)

Their projections on the brewers last 2 years haven’t exactly been stellar.
