Davis, Chris.

I like the projected rebound for Markakis (I'll believe it when I see it).

But, uh, did PECOTA over-weight the Brady Anderson comp in projecting Chris Davis? I'll take the over.

Aaron Laffey? Really?

I love seeing PECOTA perpetually fail at projecting Orioles players for the past couple of years. This one will be no different.

Seriously, those numbers for Davis are hilarious.

So, here we are on the verge of August 2014.

Turns out Orioles fans would be thrilled if Chris Davis met some of his projected numbers.

But, the main point has to be that for the third straight year, and more than 430 games, PECOTA has substantially underestimated the Orioles on-field performance. By a lot.

At this point, it does not seem logical or reasonable to talk about "regression to the mean."

What is up?
* Is Buck Showalter a lot better manager than the average manager?
* Is PECOTA missing something significant?
* Something else?

I think Baseball Prospectus readers would like to see an analysis of this issue.

We can now throw out all the small sample size and regression to the mean dismissals...we've reached the point where there is significance to the error of PECOTA's projections during the Duquette/Showalter era.

Is there a lineup / bullpen usage component missing? Perhaps Showalter is optimizing that.

Is there a sustainable FOT skill component missing? Perhaps Duq really is having a material impact on the teams record by optimizing the roster turnover and composition.
