    Which teams over/under achieved in 2013

    Which teams do you think over or under achieved this season, and what was responsible?

    I'd say Pittsburgh and Cleveland were the biggest overachievers. Washington gets my vote for biggest underachievers.

    I guess with the Red Sox going from last to first, you'd have to say they overachieved, too.

    I remember a lot of Toronto hype. Most everyone had them finishing 1 or 2 in the east.

    So you projected the Red Sox to win 84.2 games? I guess I am confused on why they aren't all whole numbers.

    I projected WAR for each player and did it quarter of win intervals. 18.3 is actually 18.25

    Nationals pretty well under achieved what they should have done.

    Braves overcame quite a bit I feel, they won in a different way than most of us thought they would.

    I feel like the Reds and Brewers underachieved, and that the Pirates overachieved

    Indians were a nice surprise, White Sox and Jays were worse than people thought they would be.

    I completely forgot about the Blue Jays preseason hype. It seems like ages ago, but they were going to set the world on fire with all their additions. Kind of like Florida last year.
