2007 ZiPS Projections and Disk for Diamond Mind 9, Build 1
The spreadsheet for the entirety of projections made to date can be found right here.
The DMB projection disk made using the 2007 ZiPS Projections can be found right right here.
Since this question comes up every year, to use the ZiPS projection disk with DMB 9, create a new empty database, select “Restore” and then select the zip file.
What’s been done so far?
- Projection for every player I’ve done to date.
- Every player is listed on their current team, to the best of my knowledge. As I’ve said before, minor-league transactions are reported very inconsistently and even people in the team’s PR department generally won’t be made aware of a lot of them, especially the very minor ones. Any mistakes made or any signings that I’m unaware of should definitely be brought up so that I can make the changes.
- On the DMB disk, I’ve made players on the 40-man roster active and players not on the 40-man roster inactive. While theoretically, this would enable one to actually do a quick 2007 sim, the results will be really goofy because I simply let DMB pick lineups and rotations and have not entered real ones yet. DMB sometimes does some really wacky things and some things that won’t happen, like Ryan Theriot starting at 2B over DeRosa, moving Dunn back and forth between a 1B/LF platoon of Votto/Denorfia, benching Griffey Jr., and refusing to play Horacio Ramirez.
Also, this is the best place to request new projections so that I don’t have to comb over each individual team projection post. All reasonable requests will be honored - for example, I’m not willing to attempt to project Max Scherzer and I have no idea how to even start projecting a Cuban defector. I will however, project Japanese players to a neutral park, so long as the request isn’t “Dan, you could project all of NPB?” I will also consider disputes on DMB ratings and will make adjustments if I find the argument compelling. “Jeter, FR rating? You suck!” is not an example of one such.
