MLB Handicapping: Despite busy offseason, Diamondbacks may not improve

02.26.2016     08:22 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Interesting article on FanGraphs’ lukewarm projection for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Last season, the D-backs went 79-83 (82-80 pyth W-L) which is the exact record FanGraphs has projected this year despite the acquisitions of Zack Greinke, Tyler Clippard, Shelby Miller, and Jean Segura. The betting markets are a little more bullish with the Westgate opening Arizona's season o/u wins at 81.5.


And if you make all of those assumptions, then yeah, the D’Backs look like a team that should win something like 85-95 games, depending on health and what kind of midseason acquisitions they make to bolster themselves for a playoff run. But let’s be honest; we could do that kind of best-case-scenario wishcasting for almost any team in baseball. If everyone’s best players repeat their career years, and all the guys who sucked last year get a lot better, and no one gets hurt, then every team in baseball is a legitimate contender.
