SABR - BBTF Chapter: SABR46 Recap
By Mike Webber
SABR 46 in Miami will always be remembered as the year we had “The Greatest Ballpark Experience of All-Time”. We’ve had good seats before at SABR conventions, but this year we were 40 rows from the field, between home plate and the first base dugout. The Cardinals pounded the Marlins 11-6, so it wasn’t much of a game, but Ichiro was just two hits from 3,000 yet as I write this a week later he’s still just two hits away.

Gonfalon Cubs: Screw the Closer
I’ve seen a couple of joking references to this on Twitter during various games, so I found it pretty amusing the Cubs actively talk about it:

Gonfalon Cubs: As I Was Saying…
Where were we…oh, that’s right. It’s good to be back. My goal is to have something up at least once a week, but I’m sure we’ll have plenty to talk about this year.
Since the last post on this blog, appropriately titled “I Am Fine with This”, a lot has happened. And then it’s been rehashed, and rehashed, and rehashed yet again. Regardless of your opinion on *how* we got here

Sox Therapy: We Still Know Nothin’
No I didn’t go anywhere, why do you ask?
So the Sox are a couple weeks into the season and so far…I don’t think we know anything particularly new. When the season began I felt this was an 83-79, third place team. I like the offense but I had concerns about a few of the down order hitters and I was more troubled about the bullpen than most people.

Edit: The linked spreadsheet should be useful if you have a minor league draft coming up.
John Sickel’s Top 150. It came out a few days after my simulation league’s minor league draft so it didn’t help me this year. If you haven’t had your draft yet check it out. Also, here’s an Excel sheet of most of my prep work. If you haven’t had your draft yet, I’m positive it can help you.
