2009 ZiPS Projection Disk for Diamond Mind 9c, Build 2
2009 ZiPS Projections for Excel 2003, Build 2
The next, final build, mainly for “real” season players, will be released in about 2 weeks with 25-man rosters and depth charts and any outstanding bugs fixed.
As always, I encourage anyone using these projections to utilize them in any manner they feel is appropriate, be it entertainment or experimental, with the exception of turning around and selling these projections elsewhere.
Calculating projections and making the projection disk are very time-consuming projects that I have always released for free. There’s no easy utility that dumps my projections simply into Diamond Mind; rather, I have to create players one-by-one. While I believe in making these available to as wide an audience as possible, I appreciate donations from anyone (made by clicking the button below) who feels that these projections or game disk have provided them with something of value (and have the financial means, obviously). I thank the regular BTF readers for their support and criticisms over the years, both of which have helped me make improvements in my work.
The uploaded spreadsheet and disk have been uploaded with bug fixes and new players.
The new players are Darrell Rasner, Paul Abraham, Steve Bray, Dallas Buck, Jose Ceda, Chris Cody, Vic Darensbourg, Fautino de los Santos, Gabe DeHoyos, J.D. Durbin, Justin Germano, Deolis Guerra, Brad Halsey, Justin Hedrick, Rodrigo Lopez, Mark McLemore, Tomo Ohka, Sean O’Sullivan, Mark Prior (sigh), Tyler Robertson, Brian Rogers, Jorge Sosa, Oswaldo Sosa, Mike Stanton, Will Startup, Madison Bumgarner, Jhoulys Chacin, Joseph Martinez, Ryan Perry, Pete LaForest, Raul Casanova, Adrian Cardenas, Brady Clark, Tony Graffanino, Toby Hall, Wes Hodges, Luis Jimenez, Brennan King, Corey Koskie, Jason Lane, Pablo Ozuna, Ryan Royster, Randy Ruiz, Jonathan Still, and Mitch Jones.
The disk includes some big fixes and updates, including but not limited to UID dupes fixed, Bogusevic becoming dual-role player with hitting projection, 3B rating for Joe Mather, 2B rating for Skip Schumaker, LF rating for Ian Stewart.
This update includes the last of the “official projections.” If a league still really needs a player, I’ll be happy to give a projection to their commissioner for entry into the league’s disk, but after a month of asking for requests, I really have to cut it off now so that people can get on with their league business and not have to worry about me randomly adding another 20 players in a week. Now, there may be a few extras on the final “simmable” disk depending on how depth charts turn out (though we have pretty good coverage now), but for the purposes of DMB Projection leagues, I consider this a complete player list for 2009. I regret not being able to do projection for Viciedo or Tazawa, but I literally have nothing to go on.
The depth charts and lineups are courtesy of SG, ZiPS Best Friend. I will be tweaking those depth charts and lineups to be consistent with the way I do them and incorporating manager profiles kindly donated by Derek Zumsteg and Chris Needham, for a 25-man roster depth chart/lineup release sometime between the 20th and 30th of the month.
I hope you all enjoy the disk. There are issues where there will be philosophical differences, such as the predictive value of platoon splits, but I hope the sum creates enjoyment for as many reading this as possible. And don’t forget that obnoxious donate button - I’ve gotta spoil the g/f after the number of weekends I’ve spent nose deep in Excel and Statistica. Consider this the Dan Szymborski Pledge Drive and you won’t have to hear it again until next year!
