  1. That is some serious Beckett love. His likely increase in BABIP could increase his K rate, but wont it certainly increase is runs allowed?

  2. -The dollar values listed are what the pitcher earned in 2011, not my projected 2012 value.
    -Rankings are solely based on my projection for next season (this is not a ranking of what already happened in 2011), with some small extra weight given to future seasons beyond next to factor in the keeper aspect.
    whats the point of including the “2011 earned dollar values” if they are of absolutely no use and only cause confusion? the dollar values are not referenced in any of the player write ups, so why are they even listed?

    Similarly, if the rankings are based on your projections for next year, then why not provide a projected value right here?

    Seems like either 1) theres going to be a really redundant series coming up soon, or 2) this series is not really providing anything useful and its only purpose is to fill some space until the real rankings are published.

    Also in the future can you PLEASE used mixed rankings for all the positional series.
    – A vast majority of fantasy players play in mixed leagues.
    – It is much easier for AL/NL only players to filter out guys form the other league, than it is for mixed players to look at 2 different write ups simultaneously and make any sense of it
    – the argument that mixed ranks would require “too much work for one person” doesnt hold water, because its pretty simple to split up the articles in a way that is feasible. split up each tier into a separate article, or have a couple different authors working on the series. the fangraphs staff is full of very bright minds – there has to be a better way than current split, which unfortunately is mostly useless for mixed leaguers.

    these are just ideas and not personal criticisms of the author, and i dont mean to single anyone out. I realize its very likely not your call, but i think the readers would be much better served if some of these suggestions were taken seriously.

  3. Yes, of course, he’s not going to post another sub-3.00 ERA. But his SIERA was 3.43, and generally in that range in previous seasons.

  5. I know FIP, BABIP, LOB% are all going against Jered Weaver for 2012. He can go deep into ball games, and as mentioned above, has excellent control. He’s basically the American league version of Matt Cain, always beating the stats working against him. Would you guys still have him as a top 10 SP going forward?

  6. It’s going to be close. I hate to give a non-answer, but it’s very difficult for me to rank pitchers so specifically before I actually project everyone and then calculate my dollar values. I would venture to guess though that if Weaver does make the top 10, he’s 9 or 10 at best. But I’d think he’ll end up in the low teens. The Pujols signing obviously helps as he’ll likely have better run support.
