Fangraphs chat answer on projections and enjoyment of the game
11:06
Comment From Kinbote
Can you articulate your philosophy on projections. We can’t (and wouldn’t want) 100% accuracy, so what is the point? Does it lead to a deeper enjoyment of the game for you?

11:07
Jeff Sullivan: It does lead to a deeper enjoyment, and if it weren’t for the projections, we wouldn’t have any idea of what to expect. Much of the time, the projections provide a good-enough idea, and that informs our thoughts on players and transactions. But the projections are also off often enough to keep baseball mysterious, and that unpredictability gives us something to keep working toward. It’s the carrot that drives us forward — how can we get incrementally better? If you always have something you’re working for, you’ll have fewer issues feeling motivated.
