Big Trade for Yankees

Baseball Prosepectus figured the odds of the Twins making the playoffs at about 20%. This is based upon their current record, upcoming schedule and educated projections. They ran a simulation a million times and have the Twins averaging 91 wins this season. Good, but not good enough.

The trade for Abreu boosted the Yankees chances over 14%. He is a heck of a player.

That is a bigger increase than any other scenario ran by the simualtion. Higher than even if the Twins had acquired Lee or Soriano.

20% isn't bad. It is much better than the 4% chance the Twins had at the beginning of June.

Maybe the two Sox can start choking.

What are you going to do with your free time once baseball season is over? Do a blog for the Vikes? Or how about the 'Wolves? Now that is one I would read.
