REGULAR SEASON RECAP

Their 91 regular season wins did not meet expectations. It was -8.8 below what oddsmakers' money line projected. The season went worse than expected. They didn't meet expectations on the road and at home. They went 42-39 on the road and were expected to win 47.7. Their 60.5% home win percentage was worse than expected (64.3%). Our projected record for next season is similar. They are averaging 92 wins per sim and are projected to finish fourth in the American League.

TEAM STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES

This is a relatively better home team than a road team. They are the #2 ranked team in run differential in home games, vs #5 in road games.
