"POFF"



If you look at the standings on the ESPN page, they have a statistic
called POFF which is the percent change of a team making the
playoffs.

While most the numbers seem reasonable, they show that the A's have
about the same chance of making the playoffs as the Angels, even
though the Angels are 4.5 games ahead.

Does anybody know how these calculations are made?
Maybe the A's have more home games left or games against weaker
opponents?
