We Project To Be In The Half Which Will Make The Top Half Possible

According to Dan Szymborski of Baseball Think Factory (based on ZIPS projections and relayed in the 12/18/11 issue of ESPN the Rag), the Dodgers will finish fourth next year in the NL West.

But the good news is, if for some crazy reason they flip to a two-wild card system in 2012, our playoff chances go up from 18.4% to 23.5%!

Actually, the good news is that the projected division leader for the NL West has the lowest playoff percentage of any of the six divisions. So in theory, we are the most winnable division for us. And in this off-season, I'll take it.
