    Great job with it and its definitely, definitely worth the price! Two issues – the WHIP projections are all too high, similar to the fan projections on here. And – relatively minor – there are typos all over the place, be sure to have someone review the whole thing before making it available next year.

    • Right, WHIP…. yep, we’re using the fan projections in the book, so that is an issue… I completely forgot that WHIP was broken for that.

        If you can make fixes to the PDF before others download it, you have Uehara’s 2010 outlook as “IP” and “Jorge Posado” on page 31. Those are a few examples of the typos.

        “the Angels also have good depth, with Matt Palmer, Sean O’Sullivan and Shane Loux, who combined for 29 starts last year.”

        Relatively small detail, but Shane Loux is no longer with the Angels, he signed with the Astros. With that said, great job putting this together!

    Love it.

    One quibble: my Cubs might shock me somehow, but they have “starting” players, not “startling” players.
