2011 ZiPS Projections, 3/25 Build
The ZiPS download can be found here.
The contents of the .zip archive are:
- ZiPS Projection Spreadsheet for Excel 2007, Consisting of just under 2200 projections, including defense.
- ZiPS Projection Spreadsheet for DMB, consisting of the above plus DMB-specific ratings (like ratings for speed, jump, etc)
- CSV files of batters and pitchers for people that do not have Excel 2007 or higher.
I am no longer uploading in Excel 97-03 format as there have been some compatibility issues when Excel 2010 saves into that format, at least with these spreadsheets.
Splits are not here, but they are on the DMB disk and will be in a final update here, for which I’ll leave a note.
This is the last chance, if you are a DMB player, to request additional players (there will be a fairly high threshold, the missing player has to be fairly significant for 2011) or to ask for a ruling on things like additional positions for the DMB disk. Make these quickly, because one Luke Kraemer and I have the disk finalized, it will be impractical to make minor changes.
If the ZiPS projections have provided you value, I encourage to leave a tip with the donation button. However, as Diamond Mind is releasing the disk this year, please do not include any donation for the projection disk itself.
I apologize for the relative lateness of the final disk for sim league commissioners. Given that I do not have the ability to release rough drafts, I needed rosters to be as close to the start of the season as possible. There can be quite a bit of difference between player rosters/lineups in mid-February and those in late-March (for example, the Mariners did not finish first on a later updates).
For those curious about team win projections, there’s a 13-page ZiPS feature in the 4/4 issue of ESPN the Magazine, which should be available on shelves now (the digital edition went live today).
If the ZiPS projections have provided you with value, I encourage to leave a tip with the donation button. However, as Diamond Mind is releasing the DMB projection disk this year, please do not include any donation for the projection disk itself as I cannot put any donations towards the purchase of a disk.
Please remember the usual caveats - I project players for their most recent team where possible and ZiPS is not a predictor of what level players will play at, so many of the players listed will not get a single game in the majors (and some never will).
