It's because every-****ing-body knows that how they do it. It's why RS/RA are the 3rd and 4th column. How the **** else do you guys think you win and lose games? It's based on runs.

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.
