RotoSpin using ZIPS projections

Postby ironman » Wed Feb 21, 2007 10:48 am

Is anyone else failing to see how their value calculations with these projections are even remotely helpful? The pitchers don't seem as bad, but I can't honestly use the hitters values and feel comfortable with it.

The zips projections for hitters just suck, plain and simple. However, they're the most accurate for pitchers according to BP.

ironman, I put out a request for projections to publish on rotospin but there were no takers.

We just don't have the time to do a full set this year and a halfass attempt would have been worse.

ZiPS is a nice baseline for shallow leagues since the playing time won't matter as much. In a deep league it is an issue.

Don't forget, you can still customize each and every projection for yourself...

Usually ZIPS is right around the top for hitters as well. You just have to pay attention to depth charts to make sure the projected player will be playing. I don't think they're as good as PECOTA but they are close.

Most baseball statisticians agree that pitching can't be accurately projected.
