  1. He’s not a rookie, but since you’ve been looking through the data, do you have any idea where to find Rafael Soriano’s ZiPS projection? He’s not listed under the Yankees or the Nats for some reason.

  2. I’m very skeptical of the Zunino projection; it seems far too optimistic.

  3. If Ryu is not advertised as having a Hadouken-style pitch, then the Dodgers’ marketing department should all just quit now.

  4. 3.3 WAR not enough to displace Kelly Shoppach.

  5. Where are the full ZiPS spreadsheets??

  6. Projections off an advanced college hitter’s performance in 29 games of A ball are probably about as accurate as predicting how I would do off my MLB 2K9 statline. I don’t think anyone would argue that that is a projection to put a great deal of stock into.

  7. I’d be just as interesting to see how the ZIPS projections fared against real life rookies from last year.

  8. Thanks! Any ETA on when the ZIPS data will be available in one spreadsheet, under the “Projections” section?

  9. Can you tenderly caress the “Authors” and “Categories” columns to the right of my screen with your talent? It’s unseemly for this website, above all others, to provide only raw “Post Count”– what of wPC? WWBJS? Adjust for “Competition” (-25% Off-Season PC, the minor leagues of PC), “Home Park” (+10 for infant, +15 real-job, +25 wife), “Injury” (+10 for hangover, carpal, +25 for Indian food), and “Luck” (-10 no one else answered phone during Eno’s DL trip (hair accident), -20 when Cameron/Appelman not minding the store); or regress for Posts Submitted, Posts Requested, Authors Posts/Total Posts w/in Period of Service?

    Having read your work, I foresee a SCOUT Leaderboard of Obscure Authors, offering the wPC of Graham MacAree, Lucas Apostoleris, Frankie Piliere, Pizza Cutter, Dayn “the Platypus” Perry, Sky Kalkman, et al.

  10. Nothing between -1 and 4 would surprise me. I was going to avoid him completely in the 2013 projections, but I was peer pressured by a pack of Mariner fans. I have very little faith in that projection.

  11. Is Rosenthal really still rookie eligible? Fair enough.

    Comment by All Balls No Brains — February 14, 2013 @ 2:40 pm

  12. Yes, per Peralta’s not! What gives Carson? How is Wily on this list with 146 innings last year? I didn’t double check, were the innnigs listed a misprint?

  13. Continued high-quality work with the links in your username, Brazen Reader, and in this case exceptional quality of username as well.

  14. Pressure from sabermetric minded Mariner fans. I’m Not buying that for a minute.

    Comment by Spit Ball — February 14, 2013 @ 3:46 pm

  15. Is Jon Jay really, really blocking Tavares? I would not be suprised at all to see Tavares go all 2001 Pujols in spring training and forces himself onto the Major league roster by May 1 at the latest. Hold back the service time if you must but this kid can hit and likely handle Center for a couple years at least.

  16. 146 IP in AAA. 29 in MLB.

    Comment by Cecil Cooper's Love Child — February 14, 2013 @ 4:52 pm

  17. No, Jon Jay and his 4.1 WAR in 117 games are not blocking Oscar. Carlos Beltran and his wobbly knee is. It’s only a matter of time.

  18. Thank you for the compliment.

    I will bet you a bottle of your state’s finest that the Angels win the season series vs. your Houston Astros.

    Comment by King of the Byelorussian Square Dancers — February 14, 2013 @ 6:50 pm

  19. Why? Seattle is full of software people and Lookout Landing is full of sabermetric fans? Although there is something weird of being a fan of a team that doesn’t seem to share your philosophy…

    Comment by baycommuter — February 14, 2013 @ 11:13 pm

  20. Zunino’s triple slash numbers are low but the WAR is about right as he probably won’t join The Show until June or July.

  21. pujols didn’t force himself onto the roster (he had a great spring, but everyone knows TLR LOVES his veterans), bobby bonilla got hurt and thats how pujols ended up going north with the team

  22. How bout you amend that challenge and pick on someone you can’t beat? Rangers vs. Angels. What is your state’s finest? Overpriced, overhyped wine? You put up a bottle of 1994 Cain Five, and I’ll thrown down enough Cooper’s Old Town BBQ to feed a family of 10. Deal?
