2008 ZiPS Projections - In-Season Projection Tool

2008 ZiPS In-Season Projection Tool

Just a little tool I give out every year to make estimated recalculations of projections for the rest of the season.  As usual with my spreadsheets, green cells are ones you put stuff into.  Someone more clever than I might be able to figure out how to data-mine a few of those cells automatically.  Remember, it’s really early in a season, so I probably wouldn’t use this too much, especially for starting pitchers, for another couple of weeks.

Dan just curious are you going to have a second build of the ZIPS for DMB? And thanks for this tool as well.

Thanks for that Marksist but I was referring to an .exe build of the data itself to be used with the DMB engine.

I'm in the habit of doing an early build and (when I have time) a later, April build, at different times than the DMB official releases, simply because Tippett isn't getting rich off of this and I hate to present something with the potential to divert at least a small part of his income. With the Simnasium takeover, I'm less inclined to worry about that in the future, unless, the owner, say, Bob W. Simnasium Jr. starts providing lots of free research and interesting SABR presentations.

So is that a yes to an April update? I have a large number of deadlines I'd like to procrastinate.

Thanks very much Dan for all your hard work. And I completely understand what you mean with Simnasium. I was just curious is all. Thanks again. Bob

I'm getting some errors when projecting hitters on the Dodgers, but I don't know enough about Excel to figure out what the problem is. Do you know?

Vlad, on the projections spreadsheet, dodgers players have the abbreviation "LAD" but it needs to be "LA" on the other part.

Yep, that fixed it. Thanks, Dan.
