The Steve Phillips Challenge

So this all started after I was trying to explain to one of my good friends that ESPN baseball analysts are terrible and I showed him the USS Mariner article about where Vegas evaluated all of the ESPN and Pecota analysts and only Pecota, Rob Neyer, and Keith Law beat a projection where every team went 81-81

So last night him, a couple other of my fraternity brothers and I went through all of the major league teams and projected their wins for the coming season and wrote them down to evaluate at the end of the year to see if A: we could beat the null projection of everyone at 81-81 and B: to see if at the very least we could beat Steve Phillips.

I figured this was something the Lookout Landing community could get behind too so if you want to submit your projections on teams for the coming season in this thread I will record them in excel and we can play against Steven Phillips and ourselves to see who had the best projection come the end of the season.

I will put my projection in the comments but one quick note of advice is that there are 2430 wins up for grabs in a normal season so you might want to adjust your projections to meet that number

Good Luck on the Steve Phillips Challenge!!!!!!!!
