Math Nerds love the Yankees

At least, this one does.

He predicts 110 games based upon a mathematical model that he's created. 109 more to go to prove him right. You can see the full predictions here.

It is far more likely, in my opinion, that the model accounts for injuries, complacency or A-Rod screwing it up, i.e. things that might derail an extraordinary acheivement of winning 110 games.

I do find it interesting that his model does find very few other exceptionally good teams. That would support Toast's assertion that the Yanks will win it all this year.
