Team Outlook and Scouting Report

REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND 2019 OUTLOOK

The regular season went better than expected. They won 88 games vs an expected win total of 85.3. Their strength was in road games. They went 45-36 on the road and were expected to win 40.2. Their 53.1% home win percentage was worse than expected (55.8%). Our projected record for next season is similar. They are averaging 87 wins per sim and are projected to finish fourth in the National League. There is not much of a gap between them and the #6 ranked Phillies who are projected for 84.6 wins. They are a contender with a 3.6% chance of winning the World Series based on simulations and a 8.7% chance of reaching the Series. They are not a good futures betting value with championship odds of 12/1, 7.7% and odds to win the NL at 6/1, 14.3%. They are -110 to make the playoffs and -110 to miss the playoffs. This is pretty much exactly what the simulations have which is a 51% chance of making the playoffs.
