2010 Central Division Projected Standings

Both defensive and offensive projections were obtained at baseballprojections.com.  CHONE is the name of the projection system.  I then added in the team baserunning totals found at BP from 2009 to the WAR for position players.  I gave starters 600 AB and reserves 100.  I used innings projections from CHONE for starting pitchers.  

This is only an estimate of each teams true talent.  Teams are usually within 7 games, plus or minus, of their true talent.  I also realize that the offseason has just begun so every team has the opportunity to improve.  I'd have posted the excel documents but I can never get them to format correctly.      

Twins 87.9 Wins.  Position players: 22.4 WAR, Starting Pitchers: 12.3 WAR, Bullpen 4.8 WAR.  Biggest hole: 3B/LF at 0.6 WAR.

White Sox 84.4 Wins. Position players: 17.0 WAR, Starting Pitchers: 13.5 WAR, Bullpen 5.7 WAR.  Biggest hole DH at 0 WAR.  

Indians 82.7 Wins. Position players: 20.4 WAR, Starting Pitchers: 9.2 WAR, Bullpen 4.8 WAR.  Biggest hole 1B at 1 WAR. 

Royals 78.3 Wins. Position players: 14.2 WAR, Staring Pitchers: 11.1 WAR, Bullpen 4.6 WAR.  Biggest hole RF at 0.4 WAR. 

Tigers 78.0 Wins.  Position players:  16.1 WAR, Starting Pitchers: 10.1 WAR, Bullpen 3.3 WAR.  Biggest hole at CF at 0 WAR.
