Earlier today we looked at some hypothetical 2011 Yankee lineups using the recently released 2011 Bill James projections, and this afternoon we’ll take a look at some of James’ pitching projections.
Not quite sure how I missed this, but Fangraphs added the 2011 Bill James projections on Monday. In the vast wasteland of offseason nothingness that has enveloped my baseball-obsessed soul, this is like manna from heaven.
This will be the first in what [...]
Murray Chass took a shot at the sabermetrically inclined on his blog this morning:
Is there something about baseball’s fad statistics and their devotees that turns that group into people who cannot be civil and use the English language to express themselves intelligently? I don’t know what it might be, but there seems to [...]

Nick Swisher, by all measures, had an excellent 2009. After a terrible 2008 in Chicago that lead to him being traded for practically nothing, Swisher bounced back in a big way and helped the Yankees to their 27th championship. The question now is whether he can repeat his [...]

As the data shows, teams have been placing players with below average on-base skills in [...]
The headline is an obvious statement, but I had yet to see an actual number put on the gap between starting and relieving until now. Tom Tango said the following:
The replacement level pitcher as a starter has a .380 win%. Move that starter to relief, and his win% goes up by about .09, [...]
