BP Unfiltered: New Season, New Cards
by
Dave Pease

<< Previous Author Entries Next Author Entries >>

Baseball Prospectus' long-running pick-the-worst fantasy game returns for 2010.

HACKING MASS, our competition to pick the least dangerous hitters and least effective pitchers in the majors, is back for 2010.  You can field your team and put yourself in the running for $399 and a Bud Selig photo by clicking here.  We're extending the entry period through Friday, April 16, 2010 at midnight Pacific, so please get your rosters locked in by then.

Here's why we're not putting the link to the DT cards back in the PECOTA cards.

Since we released the new PECOTA cards, I've gotten several requests for a link back to the DT cards like the one we used to have.  Instead of doing that, we're going to throw the DT cards away entirely, because (as we've both known ourselves and been reminded of by people for a while now) it's silly to have two sets of cards.

BP Beta Blog: Unified Player Cards

3

Dave Pease

Here's why we're not putting the link to the DT cards back in the PECOTA cards.

Since we released the new PECOTA cards, I've gotten several requests for a link back to the DT cards like the one we used to have.  Instead of doing that, we're going to throw the DT cards away entirely, because (as we've both known ourselves and been reminded of by people for a while now) it's silly to have two sets of cards.

Here is the beta release of the new "unified" player card, with career, translated, and PECOTA data all in one place.  You can navigate these cards through the index page and find individual players by typing in the "Search" field at the top right of the index.  This will filter based on what you type, so type "Gwynn" to see the Gwynn family hitters.  Once you are looking at a card, you can also click the year or team columns to get to that team's page and see other players on that year's squad--here are the extremely entertaining 1991 Detroit Tigers, for example.

The server's been right pokey lately.

You've probably noticed the slowness on our server over the last week or so. It turns out we've been doing a ton of Player Forecast Manager business this year--we're at about 250% of the usage that we've had in any previous year--and the system just isn't scaling well. We've made a couple of changes tonight and we're hoping that'll keep things rolling until we get past everyone's late fantasy drafts and the usage tails off.

BP Beta Blog: The Pitchers are Coming

Dave Pease

We have pitchers for you to look at.

We have a few pitchers now available in the beta testers only cards.  Every pitcher with last name starting with A is up.  Here are our known issues:

Here's this week's quick PECOTA roundup.

Here's a quick roundup of PECOTA news for the week:

The final version? We sure hope so.

Welcome to our hastily-implemented beta tester program.  If you can read this, you've been vocal about quality in the past, and we want to know what you think, so I've added you to our beta tester user group, and you'll have access to data early.  (Please pardon my presumption if you aren't interested; you can either ignore this whole thing altogether, or shoot me an email at dpease@baseballprospectus.com and we'll remove the designation on your account.)  Thank you to dianagram and other users for suggesting this program.

The first order of business is the PECOTA cards.  As I said last week, we're generating the pitcher cards and we should have them out in the next couple of days.  In the meantime, we've got the third and hopefully final revision of the hitter cards ready for you to look at.

BP Unfiltered: The Untitled Joe Sheehan Book

47

Dave Pease

Announcing Joe Sheehan's upcoming (as-yet-untitled) BP book project.

As you may already know, we tried self-publishing on for size last year with Pro Basketball Prospectus 2009-10 and College Basketball Prospectus 2009-10. We had a positive experience with those books, and we’re moving into self-publishing baseball material this year.

The remainder of this post cannot be viewed at this subscription level. Please click here to subscribe.

The last round of competition puts our final three on the spot with everything at stake, and all three gave us something special.

Ladies and gentlemen of the judging pool and everyone else besides, we hope you had a great weekend. It's Monday-one day later than we normally meet, but we had some extra work to do to get things squared up for our competition this week. As always, I'm Dave Pease, and this is the Prospectus Idol finale.

This time around, the remaining quartet gives voice to their observations and analysis.

Happy Sunday, and if you're reading this from the USA, we hope you had a wonderful Fourth of July. Actually, no matter where you're reading from, we hope you had a great Fourth! This is Prospectus Idol, I'm Dave Pease, and I hope you saw all the fireworks you wanted to yesterday.
