As I noted earlier this week, the AL East has become a division dominated by pitching. Dugout Central took a look at the projections for the rotations of the three contenders in the division, and reached an unsurprising conclusion:
Team Projection IP HR BB SO FIP
Yankees Total 840.3 72 265 696 3.60
Red Sox Total 808.7 83 292 638 4.04
Rays Total 769.3 88 232 637 3.94
We can see that even here the Yankees reign supreme, and quite significantly too. They get the most IPs out of their starters, they give up the least home runs and strike out the most batters. Injuries can, of course, change things. But if they stay healthy, the Yankees rotation is a force to be reckoned with – at least this is what the projections say.
There you have it. Bookmark this post, so that when you get into arguments with Red Sox fans about this, you can point out that past performance suggests that Boston has the third best rotation in the division, with the Yankees being comfortably in the lead. If all three teams stay healthy, the Yankees should be carried by their pitching to a division crown.
