Bold predictions for 2017 … part I

Here is what my simulator thinks is going to happen in 2017.  Based on the lineups posted at rotochamp.  2430 games x 1000 seasons.  Same assumptions as last year:  constant, uninterrupted 5-man rotations (haha), starter pitches the whole game (bwahahaha) and, everyone performs the same way this year as they did last year (equally hilarious) … however, you have to start somewhere :-þ

Next up … adding in provisions for starters pitching 6 innings and considering bullpens …

After some experimentation with pseudocounts … I like this better … not so great a spread between highest and lowest win totals.
