2013 FAN Projections Now Open!

The 2013 FAN Projection ballots are now open!

Before you can project any players, you’ll have to select the team you follow most closely towards the top of the screen. If you really don’t follow a team, just pick one. You’ll only have to do this once.

After you’ve selected a team, there are 9 categories for pitchers and 10 categories for position players. Pick the values in the drop-down boxes closest to what you think the player will do in 2013, hit the submit button and you’re done! If you made a mistake, you can always go back and change your selection at any time.

Please note that everything this year is a rate stat. You’re projecting 2B+3B, HR, SB, and Fielding as a measure of 150 games (basically a full season). The player’s previous stats are shown per 150 games in the projection ballot too. This will make changing playing time projections much easier as you’ll only have to change the games played portion.

That’s really all there is to it. You can filter players by team, or if you go to the player pages, you can project players individually. If you want to see all the players you’ve projected, you can click on the “My Rankings” button which will show you only what you specifically projected a player to do.

Fan Projections will show up on the player pages after there have been 15 ballots submitted.

If you do notice any issues, please let us know.

      They’re coming out one at a time per Carson, similar to how Dan did it in the past. So far I think four teams have been published, although they are missing pitcher wins in the articles.

    You know what’d be awesome. If instead of projecting batting average we projected BABIP.

    You know what else would be awesome? Instead of the drop down boxes. Slider boxes so that the users can center their predictions where they want.

    For example, if I think a player will K 10% of the time, now I can only pick 9% or 11%.

    So keep the range of 2% but let me center it at 10%

    Umm…. You might want to rethink your bins for each of the stats.
    For something like BB%, you have bins like: 5-6%, 7-8%, and 9-10%.
    Well what happened to 6-7% and 8-9%? If I decide a player will BB 8.5%, I don’t know what bin to choose.

    • You should just choose the one you think he’s most likely to hit. In the end, the slightly larger bucket sizes do not make much of a difference when computing a player’s final aggregate FAN projection.

      This. Exactly this.

      So many times I want to rate a guy exactly at the cut-off value.

      That’s why the sliders would work so well
