BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2007 Tuffy Gosewisch threw out 43 would-be basestealers last year, the third-best total in pro ball. The two players ahead of him were lower in the minors, caught more innings, and allowed more stolen bases. He started hitting the ball with authority in the second half, but that`s probably a fleeting thing; he still profiles as a defensive backup.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-04 12:00:00 (link to chat)Harry -- you're just the man I want to talk to: As Director of Technology, can you do something to improve BP's player search site? For example, if I'm looking for Carlos Garcia, your search engine takes me to a list of 12 Carlos Garcias, with the distinguishing characteristics being DOB, handedness, playing time, etc. Often, this is the kind of information I'm seeking, not information that helps me find the player. I end up clicking on half of there links before finding the Carlos Garcia I'm looking for. (Obviously this is not a problem when I'm looking up Tuffy Gosewisch.) Any thoughts?
(gerrybraun from San Diego)
yes, and I agree. One of the challenges of our exhaustive player db is making it easier to find guys. I think the first improvement we could make is to try and group the players by active/mlb/milb (in other words, rip off Sean Forman's bb-ref search results). Major overhauls won't happen quickly, but perhaps that's an idea we can implement sooner than later. (Harry Pavlidis)
