Welcome to Bronson Baseball '10

I've decided to blog during the 2010 season on my quest to defend the Roto Championship. I will be making comments on everyone's season, transactions, and ups and downs throughout the year.
On an entertaining note, Ravishing Rick Bo, Mannywood, and myself have a $100 side bet on who finishes higher in the standings. The team that does receives that amount from each of the losers. I took the liberty (and painstaking time) to project their current rosters based on the 162 game season. Findings posted below:

Ravishing : .273 729 215 734 140 84 102 1053 3.71 1.27
Mannywood : .288 700 191 735 70 96 50 1144 3.82 1.29
Franchise : .295 814 162 687 158 73 107 1070 3.72 1.25

Under this scenario, in a three team league, the final standings would be:

ravishing: 1 2 3 2 2 2 2 1 3 2 = 20
(scouting report: Ravishing can mash (HR) and run (SB). He'll need to address that horrible AVG.)

mannywood: 2 1 2 3 1 3 1 3 1 1 = 18
(scouting report: The 'woods should be in the top 5 in hitting (AVG). Unless changes occur, it appears they already punted two positions in a twelve team league. (SB and S). These areas, in particular SB, need to be addressed.)

fear franchise: 3 3 1 1 3 1 3 2 2 3 = 22
(scouting report: Should lead the pack in AVG, R, and SB. As per usual, FEARs team is loaded with WTP.(warning track power). He'll need someone to set up and mash or he'll be getting less than 4 points in both HR and RBIS.)

These predictions do not take into account a few factors like: unknown injuries, huges seasons, hot waiver wire pick ups, or great trades.

It will be interesting to see the final results in October. Looking forward to opening day on Sunday night!



  1. If your going to run a comparison you need to run it based on the entire league and not score points based on just the 3 teams...poor methodology.

  2. totally disagree! The point was not to see who would win the league, but who would win the bet! This methodolgy works for that purpose!

  3. I am going to have to agree with Parkie on this one, the methodology doesnt take into account what will happen if someone gets 12 points for one category compared to someone else getting one point, the point differential will skew the overall standings greatly, thus affecting our bet.
    Plus I am expecting Ortiz to hit .330, 35, 100, 100, which should be taken into consideration :P

  4. fair enough! I will plug in all of the stats later today to prove my point. :) stay tuned.
