I'm mystified by the Carl Crawford projection. He's still only 23, is developing more natural power and improving overall as a hitter, but ZiPS has him losing .023 off his IsoP. I could understand somewhat of a dropoff if it had him not hitting so many triples again but it has him at 17.

Great work on your ZiPS. I have really found your projections very insightful and useful in my own player evaluations. A couple quick questions . . . did you ever post the Cleveland pitching projections? It doesn't seem to be included in the overall Cleveland projections. Also, what does ZiPS project for Pierzynski now being in Chicago and what kind of projection does Kendry Morales receive? Thanks!!!

I gotta ask - XLS file? It would be huuuuge.

Great work, Dan.

I have a question in regard to defensive ratings. I have been in a simulation league using DMB software for the past 3 years. In that time I have noticed that a player is usually only rated to play positions in which he played the previous season, or is projected to play in the upcoming one. But in your projections, you have (for example) Albert Pujols rated at all corner infield and outfield positions. What is the logic behind rating him at positions (especially third) that he hasn't played in 2 years or more?

Are you involved with DMB and their defensive ratings, or are your ratings your personal predictions for players in 2005?

Thanks

I'm pretty sure this has Soriano's age as 2 years too young. Perhaps you didn't account for the fact he was one of the players that was realized to be older due to shotty birth certificates before the start of last season.
This might have affected his projection. I'm hoping for a bounceback, but with him 29 it could be a little less likely.

Why do your projections not include saves for the relief pitchers?

Spivey's correct.

I was surprised at the Soriano projection, but it makes sense if you think he's turning 27 rather than 29.
