  1. Confused about why the 2013 ZiPS projection is given if this is a list arranged by Steamer projections?

  2. My dear Mr. Cistulli

    You have accidentally written “2013 ZiPS” where you clearly intended to write “2013 Steamer.”

    Despite this I and my fellow Fangraphs readers still love you.

  10. Do any projections systems generate FPCT as a category? Our league uses that as a (poor) measure of fielding prowess. These hitting-only projections overprice guys like Miguel Cabrera and David Wright who generate terrible FPCT, historically. Obviously Wright had a flukey good FPCT year last year, but his career #s are somewhere in the .950s. The Fld stat only applies to a positional basis, as far as I understand, and not apples-to-apples across positions like FPCT does.

  11. Traded to Philadelphia and fans thought they traded for broccoli rabe for tony Luke’s roast pork

  12. FPCT has an inverse relationship to skill in many cases (Derek Jeter), because the inability to get to a ball saves the fielder from a potential error. Fielding prowess is much better measured by the plays made than the plays not made. It also has a very low year-to-year correllation

  13. Really curious how the Indians are being projected this year…

    Does anyone know where I can find the Cleveland Steamers?

  14. Um… Myers?

  15. Both of which make it more entertaining as a Fantasy stat, arguably, since it makes certain players more valuable than they are in real life (and more likely to pop up with that value “out of nowhere” to save the unlucky and inept, not to mention validating the superstitious).

    But none of that actually answers the question (and he acknowledges the poor quality of the stat, so I’m not even sure why it is necessary); alas, I am unable to answer it either. Perhaps someone over on the RotoGraphs part of the site can help.

  16. Where’d the most searched list go? I lost it in the re-design.

  17. playing time related. Service time related. Assumptions.

  18. Steamer’s projecting him for 462 PA, which is more than it’s projecting for Bradley or Martin. It just projects the other two to be slightly better. Of the three, he’s got the lowest projected BA, OBP, and wOBA. He’s got a higher projected Slugging than Bradley, which probably makes him a better fantasy player than he might be in real life.
