2014
As Opening Day rapidly approaches for most Major League Baseball teams, NJIT Associate Professor of Mathematical Sciences Bruce Bukiet has prepared his annual MLB projections for the upcoming season. And, to the chagrin of loyal Mets fan Bukiet, New York's National League club looks to be in store for a disappointing year. >>
2013
Now that the World Series is about to begin, NJIT math professor Bruce Bukiet has announced the probability of each of the contenders winning the best 4 out of 7 game contest. “The Boston Red Sox have a nearly 70% chance of winning the series”, says Bukiet. But he gives the caveat that the St. Louis Cardinals have defeated both the competition and his mathematical model in each of their previous series. >>
Tune in to hear NJIT math professor Bruce Bukiet discuss baseball projections and his mathematical model in a live interview on NPR's public radio program “Science Friday.”  >>
Now that Major League Baseball's regular season has ended with the exciting one-game tiebreaker that got the Rays to the next round, and with the Rays and the Pirates winning the one game playoff for the wild card team, NJIT math professor Bruce Bukiet has once again begun analyzing the probability of each team advancing through each round of baseball's postseason.  >>
It looks like 2013 will be a thrilling season for baseball fans as four of the six divisions can be expected to deliver tight races, says baseball guru NJIT Associate Professor and Associate Dean Bruce Bukiet.  Over the years, Bukiet has applied mathematical analysis to compute the number of regular season games each Major League Baseball team should win.  Though his expertise is in mathematical modeling, his projections have compared well with those of so-called experts. >>
2012
The Philadelphia Phillies, St. Louis Cardinals and Arizona Diamondbacks should win their divisions, while the Atlanta Braves and the Cincinnati Reds will make it to Major League Baseball's post-season as wild card teams in the National League (NL) in 2012, according to NJIT's baseball guru Bruce Bukiet.  >>
2011
With Major League Baseball's World Series set to begin tomorrow, NJIT math professor Bruce Bukiet has once again analyzed the players most deserving of winning baseball's most important awards for the 2011 season. >>
The Major League Baseball Division Series is underway and NJIT math professor Bruce Bukiet has once again analyzed the probability of each team advancing to the World Series. >>
Philadelphia Phillies, St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants should win their divisions, while the Atlanta Braves will take the wild card slot in the National League (NL), according to NJIT's baseball guru Bruce Bukiet>>
2010
There's a 65 percent chance that the Texas Rangers will beat the San Francisco Giants in the World Series starting tomorrow, said NJIT's Bruce Bukiet, an associate professor in the department of mathematical sciences.  >>
So far, so good for NJIT's Bruce Bukiet, who's been calling the cards right when it comes to winning baseball teams. In the first round of the Major League Baseball Division Series last week, Bukiet, an associate professor of mathematics at NJIT, said the Phillies, Rangers, Yanks and Giants would be ahead. And, they are thanks to his mathematical model. >>
Bruce Bukiet, PhD, of West Orange, an associate professor in NJIT's Department of Mathematical Sciences who applies mathematical modeling techniques to elucidate the dynamics of run scoring in baseball, has won the 2010 Major League Baseball Predictions contest sponsored by Baseball PhD. >>
2009
NJIT's Bruce Bukiet, a mathematician who has applied mathematical modeling techniques to elucidate the dynamics of run scoring in baseball, has computed the probability of the Yankees and Phillies winning the World Series. He also has computed the most deserving of Major League Baseball's prestigious 2009 Most Valuable Player (MVP) and Cy Young awards. >>
The New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Cleveland Indians and Los Angeles Angels should make the playoffs in the American League (AL) in 2009 with most other teams lagging well behind. >>
2008
NJIT's indefatigable math professor Bruce Bukiet is once again opining on outcomes for this season's Major League Baseball teams. His picks are based on a mathematical model he developed in 2000.  >>
2004
Bruce Bukiet, PhD, an associate professor of mathematical sciences at NJIT, has issued his baseball playoff predictions for 2004. The series between the Minnesota Twins and the New York Yankees should be the most hotly contested, with the Twins having a slight edge of 51 to 49 percent. “The Twins' edge in pitching makes up for the Yankees' dominance in hitting,” says Bukiet, an expert in numerical methods and mathematical modeling. >>
