Team Outlook and Scouting Report

REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND 2019 OUTLOOK

The regular season went worse than expected. They won 80 games vs an expected win total of 82.4. Home field was not an advantage, at least not in terms of meeting expectations. They were OK on the road. They went 38-43 on the road and were expected to win 38.1. They won 42 at home and were expected to win 44.3. Based on the latest simulations, expect a slight improvement on last season's record. They are averaging 82.9 wins per simulation and are projected to finish seventh in the American League. There is a sizable gap between them and the #6 ranked Athletics who are projected for 89 wins. They are a longshot contender with a 0.7% chance of winning the World Series based on simulations and a 1.6% chance of reaching the Series. They are not a good futures betting value with championship odds of 40/1, 2.4% and odds to win the AL at 20/1, 4.8%.
