Computers Project Phils to Win NL East
Hey, programs don't lie. Then again, they don't exactly know what's truth. But according to posting on a Yankees fans' blog" by Stat Dork" (his picture's a hoot) , the Phillies are projected to win their division by THREE different programs. That's 3 for 3 -- a perfect batting average! The average of the results appears in the table at left. The chances of making the playoffs: 60 percent! The Diamond Mind program was run 1,000 times, and in its best-case scenario, Philly finished with 106 wins! Now, Stat Dork, did you have to add this comment: "Philly's probably too high, and the Braves are too low"? Never rain on a frustrated town's dreams of a parade.
