Percentage of 2012 plate appearances that ended with a strikeout, and major league rank

BY HITTERS | 21.3% | 26TH

BY PITCHERS | 18.8% | 23RD

Best Case

2012 was not a fluke! The O's win their first division crown since 1997, Jones makes an MVP run, and Machado and Bundy shine.

Worst Case

2012 was a fluke! The bullpen doesn't prove as fortunate as it was in '12, and a below-average OBP catches up to the O's.
