We've changed the scoring system for the HACKING MASS contest.
It's been a few years since we last ran a
HACKING MASS contest, and we're excited to see all the enthusiasm for the concept out there... despite our late announcement of the contest this year, over 800 teams have already been created. I heard from BP co-founder Rany Jazayerli last week, and based on his recommendation, we made a scoring rules change. While we already updated the original announcement with the details, I wanted to post separately about this to make sure you're aware of the change, so you have time to make any adjustments to your HACKING MASS roster before Monday, April 14, at midnight PST.
Read the full article... Baseball Prospectus' long-running pick-the-worst fantasy game is back for 2014 after taking a few seasons off.
UPDATE : We've upgraded the scoring logic of HACKING MASS to better fit the times, and changed the deadline to give you more time (April 14). The new ESPN calculation is below.
HACKING MASS, our competition to pick the least dangerous hitters and least effective pitchers in the majors, returns for the 2014 season! You can field your team and put yourself in the running for $100, a lifetime Baseball Prospectus Premium subscription , or one of nine one-year BP Premium subscriptions by clicking here . Registration is open to anyone with a Baseball Prospectus account, including Basic accounts, which are free to create. You'll have a full week to enter (the deadline is April 14, 2014, at midnight PST), but it's easy to change players, so feel free to go all in on Goins on the entry form today, then switch to Ryan Darwin Barney Monday morning. But once the deadline arrives, partial teams will be dropped and new entries and changes will no longer be allowed. Read the full article... BP Visits Arlington to kick off the 2014 ballpark tour

Max joins the analytics department of the Cleveland Indians.
You should be accustomed to this by now. Words similar to the ones I’m about to write have been published on these pages by
Colin Wyers. And Mike Fast. And Dan Fox. And others, all the way back to Keith Woolner. And elsewhere, readers (myself included) have had to adjust to living without the analysis of Josh Kalk, Joe P. Sheehan, and Sky Andrecheck, to name a few.
