In fact there is a correlation between the amount of wins a team has and the amount of save opps. a team has. There has to be.
If there is a correlation, you are going to need some crazy math to figure it out.
2007 MLB Save Opportunities leaders
5. San Diego
7. Chicago White Sox
2007 MLB Wins leaders
3. LA Angels
4. NY Yankees
8. San Diego
2006 MLB Save Opportunities leaders
2. San Diego
8. Kansas City
2006 MLB Wins leaders
1. NY Yankees
2. NY Mets
6. Chicago White Sox
7. LA Angels
8. LA Dodgers
9. San Diego
Might better have a pencil with a big eraser on it to figure that correlation out.
Well looking at 2007 I see a major correlation already.
5 of the Top 9 teams in wins were also in the Top 10 in save opps.
I agree that there isn't a major correlation but there simply must be one.
RUMP, I will pick three teams who I think will have the most save opps for me and then I will pick three that I think will have the least save opps for you. I will give you odds of 6/4 that my three beat your three. If there is no correlation as you suggest then those odds are astonishingly good and you would obviously be prepared to stake a great deal on it. I did the same a few years back with Lofunzo and my three Boston, New York and Anaheim blew his three Tampa, KC and Pittsburgh out of the water.
What say you?
