That they're publishing the PECOTA projections?
First, if you actually go to their site, you'll see they do list RS/RA in the projections and second, what point would be served by not just doing the computation? Anyone with a 10-cent calculator can turn RS/RA into Pythagorean W-L. It's a very simple formula.
Obviously. They are also obviously publishing W/L projections. Noting that fact does not make someone anti-intellectual or anti-BP.

And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country." Jim Caple, ESPN (January 12, 2011)
