2010 Graphical Player

Throughout last season, Squawker Lisa and I contributed fantasy baseball analysis to Heater Magazine. After the season, Heater editor John Burnson invited us to write individual projections for each Met and Yankee player for the Graphical Player 2010, which has just been published.

While the book is aimed at fantasy baseball players, non-fantasy players will also find plenty of interesting analysis and projections. For example, here's what the Braves' writer thinks about Javier Vazquez:

One of the best pitchers in the NL, where he seems to be more comfortable. If Vazquez stays in Atlanta, he should repeat his great year, as he found a situation that suits him, but all bets are off if he is traded.

For the statheads, features of the Graphical Player include:
  • Projected 2010 stats and historical dollar values for single and mixed Roto leagues, as well as tallies for points leagues.
  • Four years of career stats, including splits for RH/LH and 1st-half/2nd-half.
  • Support for a variety of fantasy categories, including Caught Stealing, Complete Games, Blown Saves, Holds, Quality Starts and more
  • Minor-league stats down to Single-A for 2009 for every player.
  • Profiles of more than 100 prospects, with independent rankings from three experts.
  • Speculative rosters for every MLB team for 2010, 2011, and 2012.
  • Metrics like xFIP, wOBA and Wins Above Replacement

This is a great sports blog you have here man. It’s a very good read. I have a sports blog myself but I specifically cover the New York Giants. I’ve been a fan all my life and it’s great writing about them. I would like to exchange links with you to help spread some traffic around. It can’t hurt us, it’s a win/win on both sides.

Please let me know if this is possible. Take care and keep up the good work.
