Not really. Not even close, but I think I have the next best thing. I finally have a semi-easy spreadsheet to fill out that predicts a team's winning percentage knowing the underlying talent on the team. I have been wanting to do this for a while and now I think I have it ready.
Knowing the projected stats for the pitchers and hitters and their possible playing times, the number of wins the team is expected to win will be calculated. I would love to give a big thanks to The Book Blog for supplying the needed information for the calculations.
Here is the LINK to the spreadsheet and it is filled out with a basic predicted Royals lineup for reference. The spreadsheet can be downloaded to your computer by opening it, selecting File → Download and selecting the format you prefer to use.
I am sure I have an error or two or haven't explained everything in the instructions so let me know when have any questions.
Here are the instructions
- The formatting, by going to Google Docs and back, gets stripped off (e.x. The wins go to 10 decimal places, 1 would probably do). Feel free to format all the columns for easier readability.
Have fun and try not to get to depressed about next season already.
