Our 2015 Pre-Season Dalton Jones Reading Is In

We have received our initial 2015 preseason score from readers worldwide on FenwayNation's Dalton Jones Industrial Average. The results show a "raw score" of 67.2—6.2 points lower that 2014's initial reading of 73.4. This raw number is out of a maximum possible score of 100.0. The 67.2 raw score will be normalized and set to 100.0 as the benchmark reading for the remainder of the 2015 season. Readings higher or lower than the benchmark will be reported once a month through September. This year's individual raw scores were: starting pitching—46.2 (compared with 73.8 last year); relief pitching—66.6 (compared with 79.2 last year); total offense—84.7 (compared with 69.6 last year); and total defense—71.2 (compared with 71.1 last year). Look for our updated scores at the end of each month.
