The Eastern Division’s Strengths and Weaknesses

With the shortened 2020 season rapidly approaching, it’s time to dive into the strengths and weaknesses of all 30 MLB teams in their updated divisions. The first article of this three-part series will focus on the teams playing in the Eastern Division. Check it out!

"Log-5" is a method introduced by Bill James to predict the probability of victory when two teams of a given winning percentage play against each other. The formula is:

WPct = A - ( A x B ) / (A + B) - ( 2 x A x B )

Where "A" is Team A's winning percentage, and "B" is Team B's winning percentage. In the simplest terms, this formula indicates how often Team A should beat Team B.

Imagine that Team A wins 50% of its games and Team B wins 38% of its games. Inputting these percentages (as a decimal) into the formula above would yield:

WPct = 0.31/ (0.88) - (0.38) = 0.62

Or, in other words, Team A should beat Team B 62% of the time.
