Man Versus Machine, Year III...Get Your Picks In! (March 24, 2013)


It’s that time again:  for “Man Versus Machine III” – the annual competition to see if you, mere mortals, can out-forecast me (“The Machine”), armed with my sophisticated self-created regression-based statistical model, in predicting how many wins various baseball teams will achieve in 2013.

So, come on.  Hit me with your best shot.

Take five minutes and, more or less off the top of your head, predict how many wins various MLB teams will have in 2013.  (Obviously, if you want to take more time, or even build your own regressions, go right ahead.)

You can pick as many teams as you want – a minimum of 5 or up to all 30 MLB teams.

So, simply put your predicted number of wins next to each team – using your own spreadsheet (preferably) in a format like the one below – for a minimum of FIVE teams, up to ALL 30, or anywhere in between), and send them to me at:


Get your predictions in by this Sunday, March 31, 8 PM.
