The Nationals comment should have Jordan Zimmermann, not Ryan.
How about Felipe Paulino?
At this rate, Altuve will be 5' 10" by the time he reaches the majors.
I think he's ranked #3 because the best case is that he hits like a top 5 first baseman every year while playing catcher, and the floor appears that he's *only* one of the top 5 first baseman every year.
And one day late for me to decide on Seth Smith vs. Andres Torres.
The graphs aren't showing up in my browser? Are they working for everyone else?
Ditto. I found this to be a very entertaining new way to look at an old-hat subject.
I loved the article. However, I have to agree that I wanted more. The stories here seem interesting and deep enough to fill out several book chapters.
I've got Harang on my Scoresheet team, so you just made my day!
Free Kiko Calero? The Mets inexplicably have him stashed in a shoebox somewhere and the Cubs could probably get him for next-to-nothing.
The tiers are great. I like it better this way than last year.
I think it would be worthwhile for you to do a final update and summary spreadsheet at the end after running through all of the positions. It will give you a chance to incorporate the feedback you get through the comments (such as you could add Pablo Sandoval to the 1B list since he is eligible there in most leagues). My league doesn't draft for at least 2 more weeks, and I would like to use the final summary spreadsheet that includes any corrections for drafting.
One other suggestion is to do a mid-year review and update around the all-star break instead of waiting for the end of the year. I think it would be interesting and could help you by shortening the feedback cycle to see how you did with your predictions.
Great comment. I think a full-length article about Albert Pujols would be interesting. I never realized what he has done is so amazing. Since PECOTA projections have probably regressed his stats to the mean each year, I wonder if he has exceeded the PECOTA projections every year from 2004-2009.
Ugh. My fantasy team must have been hit by the same injury curse:
My 1st pick in the draft was Jose Reyes.
My only outfielder who has been producing is Justin Upton.
The 1st pitcher I drafted was Jake Peavy.
Oh, and I also have Lance Berkman.
There's always next year.
I would enjoy reading similar in-depth analyses of other pitchers, both the successful ones and ones who haven\'t been so successful of late. What makes Lincecum so good? What happened to Fausto Carmona? etc.
Resign Furcal, Manny & Lowe; build pitching from within; repurpose Nomar & Kent salaries to sign O. Hudson; long term plan is draft 1B and 3B superstars.
I found it:
