What A Dumb Idea

Want to forecast the upcoming MLB season? The hell with those new-age stats, let's use fantasy baseball player rankings!

The results here are pretty predictable: the Reds, who play lousy defense but will get lots of steals from Willy Taveras, are now picked to finish second in their division; the Tigers, with a slow baserunning corps but very good defense, are mired in last place.

Other notable outliers: the Twins apparently won't be affected at all by regression to the mean in 2009, and the Brewers somehow finish behind the Astros (this one has me stumped).
