REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND 2019 OUTLOOK
The sum of all of their money line implied probabilities (adjusted for the juice) projects to 69.9 wins. Their 67 actual wins was below expectation. Home field was not an advantage, at least not in terms of meeting expectations. They were OK on the road. They went 33-48 on the road and were expected to win 32.3. They won 34 at home and were expected to win 37.5. In the latest simulations for next season they are averaging 71 wins per sim, which is a solid +4 improvement and are projected to finish eleventh in the American League. There is a sizable gap between them and the #10 ranked Mariners who are projected for 74.4 wins. They are definitely not World Series contenders (less than a 0.1% chance). Their odds of winning it all are 1000/1, 0.1%. Their odds of winning the AL are 500/1, 0.2%. Their chances of making it to the World Series are also basically zero.
