Updated park factors for all teams through the first 30 days of the season.
I use a weighted mean park factor for all teams – a five year moving average, weighted 3-2-1 for the one-year factors. So the park factors for 2010 use (3*2010PF + 2*2011PF + 2*2009PF + 2008PF + 2012PF)/9, assuming they are […]
Debut: April 3, 2016. Pinch-hit for Adam Wainwright in the top of the 7th; struck out.
Hazelbaker is a 28-year-old rookie, who parlayed a .304/.373/.543 (.334 EqA) spring performance into a spot on the Opening Day roster (thanks also in part to a late injury to Ruben […]

Changes since last weekend:
Chase Anderson traded from Arizona to Milwaukee
Joins a Brewer rotation with nine potential starters and it isn’t completely
obvious who the best 1 is, let alone the best 5. FWIW, he rates as the […]
My first run (that I’m willing to talk about) of projections for the coming season is now up on the 2016 Projected Standings tab. They have also been used to create a new Playoff Chances Report. And, of course, the individual projections that go into are available, again on the Projected Standings page.
In 2015, Jung-ho Kang became the first hitter to jump directly from the Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) to the major leagues. This year, two more hitters – Byung-ho Park, for Minnesota, and Hyun-Soo Kim for Baltimore – will attempt to make the same trip.
Here’s a a draft that I worked on last January but […]
Those who have known me for years may remember that I have my own Hall of Fame method set up, which works something like this.
Each player gets a score that is a modeled on the MVP ballot. It is a weighted average of his career WARP3 – your best season in WARP counts 14 […]
2015 was a bad year for stats.
I had intended to write this as a review of my 2015 projections – and I will get to that – but I ran into something else while working them and decided that this was actually a bigger deal.
I’ve got a program here which it seems I […]
On August 14, 1910, the Chicago White Sox lost to the then-New York Highlanders 5-1. Making his debut in centerfield that day was a 21-year-old outfielder by the name of Edward Harrison “Dutch” Zwilling.
Zwilling had an odd little career. He played four seasons, for three different Chicago teams – the White Sox in […]
