Playing Fact or Fiction with All 30 MLB Team's Early-Season Records

As a fun way to put each team's early-season records into perspective, I extrapolated their current winning percentage out over a full 162 games in order to see how they would be projected to finish if they kept up their current pace.

From there, I decided if each team's start to the year was fact or fiction, based on whether their projection was plus-or-minus eight wins of where I think they'll finish the year.

Why eight games? Because eight games gave me roughly a five-percent margin of error in either direction, allowing for a clearly defined range with which to work.

Obviously, it is still very early on in the season, and at the end of the day this was not meant to be anything more than a fun look at how things would shake out if everyone kept winning at their current rateso hopefully you will treat it as such.
