Morning Bits: WS Trophy, Wang, Damon, Swisher, PECOTA
Ah, finally–the end of a busy week.
Let’s kick off the day with a few noteworthy news items:
- The Yankees will be bringing their WS Trophy on a “tour” through Asia beginning in Tokyo.
- Chien-Ming Wang could sign soon as there are currently “four or five” teams in pursuit of the righty.
- The Toronto Blue Jays, who could use another corner outfielder, have checked in on Johnny Damon.
- Nick Swisher, Damon’s lockermate, wishes he could have been his “road dog” for a few more years.
- PECOTA projections are out (seen above), and the numbers have caused somewhat of a stir.
Baseball Prospectus’ system projects the Yanks to win 93 games in 2010–good for 3rd in the AL East.
