I'm not offended, just not the baseball insight I am looking for. I skimmed this article, and that is becoming a much higher percentage here than I wish.

Mike, Great article, keep them coming. I find myself skimming more and more BP articles, that is not the case for the fantasy beat.

Gallardo is not a start right now. He has been terrible over the last few weeks, and I anticipate a shutdown coming shortly.

Suppan is terrible. This is realistic. He is on the verge of walking more than he strikes out, that smells like a 6+ ERA to me even at the 50 percentile.

Aren't good fantasy owners supposed to look at projections, add in their own conclusions and make their calls accordingly? Before all this noise, I had my PFM set to my league rules, and I draft according to the projections and my assessment on which ones I am on board with and which ones I am not. The fact that PECOTA has some kinks is not ideal, but who here is drafting blindly with these projections? Marc's guidance, Will's THR's and damn near every article on this site should help all of us form opinions and make the calls. The book is great, the site is great, the BP team is being upfront about the issues. Let's roll with it and move on.

Suppan had a 5.78 ERA in the 2H and his K/BB was 0.9. His line drive rate was 20 percent. Also his hit rate actually dropped by a percent from the 1H. It was BP out there after the break, and I had to sit through it. In his age-35 season projection of a 6 ERA really out of the question?? Zaun batting 2---come on guys.....

Can we add Zach Braddock and hope the Crew will not need Burns? Braddock out of the bullpen seems more probable than Burns as a spot starter unless all heck breaks loose.

Can we assume with the second removal of bone chips and the number of innings logged that Santana is a "high green"?

Kevin, In Wisconsin we begin to talk this time of year about spotting your first robin as a sign of spring---for me its my BP sitting on my front porch when I arrive home from work. The sooner that happens the better!

I think Nolasco is becoming so hyped as a sleeper he will be overvalued. You did well on Bailey and Heyward. The ghost click in online auction drafts need to be fixed. I have lived with a slow .001 second click and paid 4 more bucks for a guy too often....

Will-Thank you for mentioning that Hamels is a "high green". That note, along with his peripherals being stronger than his 2009 output really solidfies him as a guy that I will be targeting in all of my auctions/drafts.

As a Brewer fan, I can firmly state that Jeff Suppan does suck. Colors have worked for me all along. It is a guiding tool for me during fantasy when I have a green and a yellow dancing in my head before my next pick, and it works for me as a fan when I see Rickie Weeks wearing red when I hear local reports each spring that he is in the best shape of his life, he gets compared to a young Paul Molitor who had injury problems early in his career and THIS is the year he is going to stay healthy.

Will there be an update before teams report to ST? Counsell and Edmonds need to be added from my point of view. I also see Heether as our righty ultility guy, there's no room for Irabarren (and most likely Inglett) at the inn.

Weeks will be the leadoff hitter. Suppan will not get 23 starts assuming his production is what we think it will be. He will get the "Bill Hall" bad contract pink slip in late summer. Also, Oeltjin is the left handed version of Gomez so here's hoping Edmonds can take those AB's and give us some pop off the bench.

Will BP continue to contribute to ESPN.com? The reason I ask is Neyer, Law and Grey are a pretty good 3, 4, 5 in the lineup and with BP articles sprinkled in, how is that not a better option at the same price? I am debating making a switch, not enough time to keep both and isn't this setup the best of both worlds?

This really gave a clear explanation of Ruth's effectiveness as a pitcher. I was under the impression he was much better than this. Brian did a super job of clearing up that misconception for me and I assume many others.

The Beloit Snappers going from the Brewers farm team to the Twins is a good example of proximity to the big club hurting attendance. The ballpark's quality helps as well. Parks with aesthetic issues can drag down attendance.

This article gives no new insight to anything I have read on the trade. Calling last year's Pittsburgh outfield, "one of the best in MLB" is a real stretch.

As a Madison area baseball fan, I can say people go to Mallards games for the social factor and the all you can eat Duck Pond over the players in the game. The Timberattlers (Appleton) gaining Brewers affiliation this year will affect attendance of local baseball fans. I live 30 minutes from Warner Park and have not set foot in the stadium in several years.

My style has been to combine PECOTA, Bill James and Ron Shandler's projections. If all three models are saying breakout, I feel I am on to something. PECOTA is an awesome tool, and Matt gave a great breakdown on how to utilize it. Tremendous article.

The was nothing new brought to the table in this piece. The Red Sox rumors are common knowledge, and most of us have noticed Porcello and E.Jackson's starts to 2009. Ryan Ludwick getting picked up in June is her weakest fantasy note. He was rostered in most leagues well before that.

Looking forward to the book. My concern is the team writeups considering the offseason moves have been behind the normal offseason timeline. What a tightrope the authors had to walk to talk about 2009 when players such as Manny, Sheets, Abreu and Dunn are still floating out in FA never,never land. Will there be updates at BP.com on some of the team projections based on later FA moves??

When does baseball decide to take a hard look at creating competive balance in baseball? As a long time Brewers fan, it was clear to me CC would rather have stayed in Milwaukee or gone to California, but the Yankee money talked. After the Texeira signing today, it is hard to not look at the NFL and wish for that balance that lets me enjoy the Packers knowing they have a chance each season.

Sharky, Salome is shorter than 5\'7\" according to my eyes and Lawrie is no sure thing defensively so we need to give them a year to progress before we make a move on either one. Lawrie may not be behind the plate after a year in A ball.

Wisconsin fans are giddy about the move of our Low A team back to the state. With our ground ball pitchers, Bush and Suppan in particluar would not be able to survive with Gamel. A move to 1B seems most likely, and if Prince is traded for pitching this would make sense.
