Well, this is encouraging, Phils win the Division in simulation!!!

According to this, the Phillies win the Division about 1/2 the time, and make the playoffs 60% of the time. This guy took three different simulations of the 2006 season and played the season out.

A few facts I found to be particularly interesting: Although the Phils drop a few runs from their actual scored in '06, they are still projected to pace the NL, along with Colorado. Also, they are projected to give up a scant 710 runs, which would be third in the NL behind St. Louis and LA.

I guess our pitching staff might be all right after all.

Thank you, Tom. I appreciate all links. I believe the blogging community to be far superior to the newspaper and radio coverage, and the more we are linked to each other, the better we all are. It's not competition, but synergy.

We all have our niches. I like to think mine is that of a contrary question raiser. Hopefully, I give folks like you something on which to chew now and again.
