SG over at RLYW released his updated CAIRO projections last night, so I thought it would be interesting to look at the wOBA projections for the Yankees’ and Red Sox’ lineups, being that both teams are pretty much set from 1-9. For those who are unaware, wOBA is a catch-all measure of offense. It does not adjust for ballpark or position, and it is just trying to give a raw estimation of production.
Here they are lined up without names:
It looks like the Red Sox might be a smidgen stronger in the middle, while the Yankees have the advantage at the bottom. If you unscientifically just tally up the wOBA’s on each team, you would get a gap of 14 points in favor of the Yankees, a minuscule difference across 9 spots. In all, these are two excellent lineups, with the Yankees possibly having the slight advantage of being a little deeper. Now it is up to Brian Cashman to build a pitching staff that can hang with Boston’s and contend for a division title.
