The Daily Prospectus

Prospectus Potpourri

by Dave Pease

  • As you've probably seen, the Player Cards are back. We'll be working with this feature as time permits during book-writing season to make it more useful and user-friendly, and we'll gladly consider any thoughts you have on the matter. Please see Clay's article for more details and contact information.

     

  • Now for the bad news. I've looked several times over the last few weeks, and I've been unable to locate the Hacking Mass entries for 2002. Unfortunately, we had numerous server issues during the year, and somewhere in the confusion, the entries hit the bit bucket. I feel terrible about this, and apologize to everyone who entered. For HM2003, we expect to have a daily update of the contest standings, which will both keep you up to date on your team's progress throughout the season and make it much, much harder for me to lose the important stuff.

    We still have a few copies of BP2003 earmarked for the winners, so let's try this instead: send us what you remember your roster being, any corroborating information, and why you think you should win to info@baseballprospectus.com. We'll pick the best, funniest (without pushing the limits of publishability) entries and run them next month, and our three favorites will win copies of the book. Please be sure to include your mailing address (as of February 2003).

     

  • We've got a roster change here at the Prospectus, as Derek Zumsteg hands off The Week In Quotes to Ryan Wilkins. You'll see the same great quotes every week, but if you've got something to submit, you'll want to send email to Ryan instead of Derek.

     

  • The baseball season's over, the weather is getting colder, and the days are getting shorter, which sends a signal to our staff that it's time to go into hibernation. Unfortunately, most of us have financial obligations that preclude months-long naps, so we're instead working on Baseball Prospectus 2003. During the first couple of months of the offseason, site updates will be less frequent as the book moves towards completion and the printer. Please bear with us during this time; we've got some good stuff on tap for the end of the year, and we think you'll enjoy it.
