- All players are projected to their current or, in the case of unemployed players, their most recent teams.
- To install, create a new empty database in Diamond Mind 9.0 by selecting File—>Create New Empty Database. Name the new database anything you want it to and then hit File—>Restore and select the ZIP file that you download.
- Players with long enough sample sizes now have their actual platoon splits programmed in.
- Teams have simmable depth charts and lineups for season sims.

Short of any emergency fix (there was one with Randy Johnson last year), this is the last 2010 ZiPS product.
For those interested in more ZiPS, please check out ESPN the Magazine’s baseball preview, with 7 pages of team simulations and commentary by Buster Olney and Tim Kurkjian. There will also be a few more small things utilizing ZiPS on ESPN Insider before the start of the season (leader probabilities, 40/40 club, Triple Crown odds and so on).
