Back in the pre-season, we launched a new player rater methodology called Point Shares to estimate fantasy baseball player value. There aren’t a lot of Player Raters to be found other than ESPN (Y! and CBSSports.com don’t have ones) but we feel ours is better because it factors in variables like a player’s position (e.g., Hanley Ramirez’s 33 HR is worth more than David Wright’s) and the point totals actually represent something. Please, blog, may I have some more?Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’m wondering why there’s such a huge gap between BaseballHQ’s value for Dunn and yours. HQ has him 72nd and your player rater has him 22nd for batters in mixed 12 team regular 5×5. HQ assigns $ values but I think it’s effectively the same thing. Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’ve got 8 of 10 slots filled in for our inaugural Fantasy Razzball league – where the basic objective is to compile the worst roster of MLB players. That’s right – the worst team.
The blogs set to participate are:
Razzball.com (Rudy Gamble)
Razzball.com (Grey Albright)
Greener on the Other Side
Mop Up Duty
Cards in the Attic
Lou Poulas (Fantasy Insider Online, Sweet Lou’s Baseball Lab, Razzball.com)
We need two more participants so if you’re interested in joining, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please, blog, may I have some more?Please, blog, may I have some more?
Like a Scotch drinker, I’ve found my taste for baseball projections has matured over the years. Where my initial taste was weaned on Dewar’s-quality projections like ESPN, Yahoo!, or some $4.95 magazine off the newsstand, I now hold out for premium, single-malt varieties like PECOTA/Baseball Prospectus and Ron Shandler.
