A question I have is how do these projections equate with leageu average stats. For example (and please correct me if I am wrong or off base as I am still relativeley new to all this) Andrew Miller had a far below average LOB% and a high BABIP (.346) yet his ERA is suggested to stay at nearly five, despite his skill set suggesting it should be much lower. Now I know the defence behind him will not be improved, so do the projections factor this in? Thank you for any help you can provide.
