Happy Friday. Here’s a look at the AL East, courtesy of Rankometer. I decided to display all 5 of the teams in the division on one page to make comparisons easier. (To zoom in on a particular team’s Rankometer, just click on it and it will zoom in.)
When I look at the AL East offenses (measured by OPS) and starting pitching (measured by FIP), Tampa Bay looks surprisingly average, while Toronto looks pretty strong. In the future I’ll use Rankometer to examine other important aspects of a team, such as bullpen, defense, and perhaps even break down offense a bit more (on base percentage, power, base running).
