2007-2010 team win totals vs. Pythag record and PECOTA preseason predictions

Decided to look these up out of curiosity, prompted by the insane amount of hatred aimed at Ron Washington by Rangers fans lately.  

Win differentials versus the prediction systems and pythag records obviously leave a lot of room for debate as far as their being indicators of managerial performance goes, but one has to wonder why the team of a supposedly awful and unintelligent manager is currently in its 3rd straight season with more wins than both the preseason prediction systems and pythag records say it should have.
