Seattle has a red rotation! Yikes! Good thing they have depth. I expected both Peavy and Lincecum to be red, also. Who has the healthiest team, Milwaukee?

Take a look here (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=5836) and scroll down to the \"All About Upside\" section. That might help you understand what PECOTA\'s \"Upside\" score means.

PFM will take projected playing time into account. This iteration of PECOTA does not.

The Player Forecast Manager is the only tool you\'ll need. You can input your league settings in at the front, and it will create a set of dollar values that you can use in either auction form or in a straight draft. You can also tell it mid-draft who is on your team and who is on everyone else\'s team, and it will give you a list of the best available players according to what it projects your players\' statistics to be.

He\'s on there - line 221 on my sheet after sorting by VORP.

The first version of PECOTA basically says, \"If Player X is in the majors all season (even guys who were in A-ball all last season), here\'s the number of at-bats I think he\'ll get, and here\'s how I think he will do in those at-bats.\" Later iterations (and things like the Depth Charts and Player Forecast Manager) take things like playing time and likely level of play (AA, AAA, MLB, etc.) into account.

You can see a preliminary view of this on each batter\'s PECOTA card - scroll down to the lefty-righty splits bar graph near the bottom.

My top wish is WARP3 (hopefully updated on the site according to the latest BP) and FRAR to be included in sortable statistics.

That Bison is quite reminiscent of the Durham Bull.

Not sure what you\'re going for...how many commenters know who Crosby is, or about his \"soft\" and \"injury-prone\" labels? Perhaps a \"get yer hockey news off my baseball lawn!\" For the record, Crosby is one of perhaps three NHL players I can name (the other two being Brind\'Amour and Satan).

I\'m totally with the doctor on this one. A stat report with FRAR or some fielding equivalent for individual players has been a long time coming.

Kevin, do you see a mid-2009 debut for Holland, or is he more likely to make the rotation coming out of camp in 2010?

Isn\'t it \"Yovani\"? How\'d your draft go? I joined the Rog Reviews football league and kind of destroyed in the draft.
