Sean Forman: Using Monte Carlo to Predict Wins and Losses

Sean Forman of Baseball-Reference is the DH at Baseball Analysts today. Sean uses Monte Carlo simulation to tackle an issue that’s been very much the it topic amongst the online sabermetrics community: Pythagorean Win-Loss predictions (see here, here, and here).

Sean does a great job, which is not surprising coming from one of the most meticulous internet publishers around. I’m not sure we’ve been good enough to deserve the site Sean provides. And if you’re looking for a way to search Baseball-Reference even faster, checkout the Fifefox search plugin for the site.
