BIG TIME NEWS! 2/18/03:First off I'd like to apologize for the long time between updates. Other projects have dominated my time, and then another bigger project monopolized the rest. Not a good excuse but an excuse nonetheless and the best I can come up with since it's the truth.
More bad news. There will be no projections released this season. I feel real bad both in the timing and the nature of the announcement, but the fact is, that they aren't coming. Why?
Because since last October I've been working as a consultant to baseball operations for the Boston Red Sox. It's a dream come true and has already been a tremendous experience for me, and I'm thoroughly excited about the team and the nature of my work with them. The upcoming baseball season as undertaken a whole new dimension for me and I can't wait for it to begin.
Of course, this does mean that the Red Sox would like to receive sole benefit (or harm as the case may be) from any player evaluation or analysis I undertake, and unfortunately projections fall into that domain. The end result is that for the first time in the last four years, I will not be releasing projections.
I will try and keep some regular updates on the site, and provide any links to content you might be interested in. I know that I'm affiliated with them, so take this with a grain of salt, but I am highly impressed with the quality of the Baseball Primer website and find it a virtually critical starting point for finding out about baseball news.
In a week or so, I will publish the results of how my projections did last year with comparsions to a few other sources.
Feel free to contact me via e-mail with any questions regarding baseball and I'll be happy to answer as many as I can.
Thanks for stopping by and let me know if you have any comments or questions. My e-mail address is below as well. Enjoy.Vörös McCracken
