As a ballpark, what share of your clients come as referrals and what share come from scouting? Also, do you generally have a higher hit rate with the referrals or does it matter?

Will you be doing a top 100 overall at the end of this series?

Back in the day, the player cards had pecota 10%, 25%, 75%, and 90% projections. I really miss that. Is there a reason y'all removed them?

After checking Joe Carter's player card, I only see 2 "yuni" seasons, both late in his career. What am I missing with Joe?

Interesting analysis. I liked what you did with the contracts you evaluated. It felt like you rushed through the second half of the analysis (players closer to free agency). Has that portion been covered in a separate article? If so, could you add a hyperlink?

10 years for a catcher seems like a risky commitment, even for one as talented as Posey.

Is Blackly still a 2 start pitcher this coming week? MLB shows Millone and Parker going Monday and Tuesday for the A's.

Read the OV piece on SI. Thanks for both of these; well done. At first, I found the SI comments hilarious. Unfortunately, I didn't quit soon enough. It was so bad by the time I quit reading (couldn't make it through the whole list) that I was quite revolted. I have no tolerance for the whole "science = bad" BS, which is how much of it came off.

Informative and entertaining. Thanks!

I don't think it's that easy to dig up a 3 win player. If it was, replacement level would be 3 wins higher. Seems like a reasonable deal. Probably a bit more than he'll be worth, but the combination of price and length seems reasonable, given the player. Besides, as good as Hamilton is, I don't know if I'd expect him to give a lot more in terms of total wins than Ethier over the next 5-6 years, given the potential for injury. This seems like the lower risk option.

Funny how time flys. My first reaction to the 25 and under was "where's Scherzer." I guess the answer is over the hill at 27.

I remember reading this (and enjoying it) when it was first published. Nice to see some entertaining old pieces getting brushed off. Will y'all be putting up some of the seminal pieces such as McCracken's BABIP article (I assume you will)?

Methinks Riccardi needs a better options pricing model.

Heh. Isn't "Thou shalt use a WACC of 10%" the 11th commandment? I think it gets left out sometimes because of the popularity of top 10 lists.

There's also the fact that any comparison of multiple similar players would tend towards "average," even for all-time greats. What 10 comps could he have that would end up with an expected HR total over 700?

Me too. I bet many of the people reading this article drafted them.

The Helton walk in the 1st inning would have been a foul-out, if not for the sun. It would have been a 17 pitch inning - not bad.
