2013 Community Projections Results: Robbie Ross

Rick Yeatts

Reviewing the best and worst of the pre-season community projections.

For the second straight year Robbie Ross provided a quality year out of the bullpen. And for the second straight year he was lights out in the first half and scuffled a bit as the year wore on.

On a neat note, he struck out way more than he did last year and far more than anyone projected, while also lowering his walks. That's always a good thing.

While Ross was very good in 2013, he was eventually passed on the depth chart by Neal Cotts as the primary left handed reliever. Cotts ended up with a minuscule 1.11 ERA in 57.0 IP despite not appearing in a game for the Rangers until May 21st. So good job Robbie Ross and holy crap, amazing job Neal Cotts.

Congratulations to AceJC for having the lowest score* with his projection. Here is a spreadsheet with how everyone did.
