NJIT Math Professor Bruce Bukiet Predicts The Mets Will Win 98 Games in 2016

Bruce Bukiet, seen above is a Professor of Mathematics at NJIT and an avid baseball fans.  He told me that he is a member of SABR.  He just announced his predictions for the baseball season using a mathematical model as he has done for many season.  He predicts that the Mets will win 98 games and win the National League East.  His model predicts the Yankees will finish at 78-84.

Mathematical models are obviously not perfect and sometimes players under or overachieve.  It can not predict injuries to significant players which change the picture.

I certainly hope he is correct.
