Thank you Chris.
Any thoughts on <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=105665">Willie Calhoun</a></span>?
Or perhaps as the Cubbies DH once the league reacts to the Wainright/Scherzer injuries. It's coming gents, a little faster after the happenings of the last week or so...
It's Christmas in February! I feel like I am five years old and waiting for my parents to give me the go ahead to come downstairs and see what has been left for me (maybe a bit of an exaggeration but conveys the excitement well). I think I may be late for work today! Thanks guys.
Thank you Ben.
I may have missed this somewhere, but can you give us a rough estimate of when PECOTA, etc. will be running including if possible any planned updates. It is time consuming to prepare for a draft, and then discover 2 days before the draft that an update to PECOTA has taken place and then all of the sudden, I've got to re-prepare. This is not a huge concern really, but the wife only gives me so much time to devote to this, so it does become quite precious around this time... Thank you and I continue to enjoy the work you guys do...
Personally, I think if they put resources into turning it around, they should be applauded for saying we stink and we need to get worse before we can get better. This is much preferrable to things that happen in Miami for instance. If I were a fan of the Astros, I would understand this and would also prefer it to the team that is mediocre and keeps adding a piece or two here that keeps them mediocre but never gets them into real consideration for a championship. As far as tanking for a better pick, the question is why? How often does the best player in the draft turn out to not be the #1 overall selection? Quite frequently I'd guess so moving up to #1 really doesn't help unless there is a once in generational talent available. I would guess the gains of moving up to 1st is far outweighed by the loss of revenue if you intentionally tank games at the major league level.
Variety: early in draft high ceiling no doubt, you need to find those superstars/difference makers and as the draft progresses move towards higher floor talent to increase odds of making a contribution. Although, really, there are easily defendable and justifiable scenarios where both ways are appropriate, I guess it depends on the state of your team, farm system and the talent in the draft too.
It's like Christmas in July, err, February
Thanks, it helps to put some kind of picture in my head instead of just a name.
Would the following comps be appropriate in a best case scenario:
Hanson = Poor man's Jose Reyes
Polanco = Poor man's Eric Davis???
no, he would slug 1.212
