Thread: 2017 Season Red Sox Wins Projection

    2017 Season Red Sox Wins Projection

    Now that the roster is mostly finalized. How do you think the Sox will perform this season?
    Fire Farrell - fucking check mark!
    Trade Pedroia
    Sign JD Martinez to play 1B/DH
    Sign Alex Cora for MGR

    I put 92-95, but I would have gone 96+ if we were in any other division than the AL East.

    Obviously injuries could be a factor, if we are not devastated I will say 95.

    Incapable of independent thought, I will go with the FanGraphs projection of 92 wins:

    88-92 wins with good health.
    "Hating the Yankees like it's a religion since 94'" RIP Mike.


    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    I'm going to be surprised and disappointed if it's not at least 92, a division championship and an appearance in the ALCS.
    Any owners who sign previously suspended PED abusers to a big $$ contract are as guilty of perpetuating the PED problem as are the players.

    With Price for 5 months, 93 wins.
    Without price for the season, 87 wins

    Interesting... You think Price is only worth 6 wins over a replacement pitcher? I'd think at least 10.

    David Price has averaged 5 Wins Above Replacement over the past seven seasons, including 4.5 fWAR last year:

    after a brief stint on the DL at the start of the year - he will pitch this season. I am a brain surgeon so i know a bit about elbow injuries.

    this i 100% believe: after a couple of "feeling his way" starts - he will pitch well the rest of the season. and by well i mean ACE like. He's going to tell 2016 Slasher to STFU. bigly.

    Aces are worth more than their WAR indicates, but you have Sale and Porcello who were aces last year too. Price's worth isn't just his effectiveness, it's his durability. Being able to throw 200+IP for a team with a suddenly thin pen (Thornburg hasn't thrown and Smith is returning from surgery) is really important. That being said, your offense should manhandle a few bad starts where Price is out and league average replacements with that offense should do "ok".
    How many more years left in ARod's contract?
