wow slant, looks like your cover has been blown.

should at least credit the source like guest said. do you have any predictions of your OWN? how can u rank those outfielders like that(or should i say baseball notebook). they are pretty far down in outfielder rankings. andruw jones, top 13? even top 30?

Wait a minute. Does this mean that those statistical analysises that he signs "Rob Neyer espn.com" are stolen too? How about his in depth Spring Training report. My whole world is falling apart.

WOW!! Stealing really poor rankings and then calling them your own!! That takes brass ones! I'd be trying some SERIOUS trade work to improve the team. See, ranking Jimenez as the #6 2b is poor at best, Jones, Gonzalez, etc. in the top 15? Maybe in 1999 or 2000 but not now! If you are gonna use someone else's rankings just tell where they came from. There's no shame in that. But taking them as your own - that's not good - oh yeah - one more thing - I'd try to get a refund on the subscription because that David Luciani isn't getting it done!

I had access to this site last year. I thought the projections were interesting to look at, but I didn't put a lot of faith in them. I subsribed this year, and while I'd never be able to bring myself to completely trust somebody's season projections, I've found it to be a useful tool. For what it's worth, he projected D. Lowe to have the second best ERA in the AL last year.

They have A. Jones projected at 99R, 38HR, 102RBI, 24SB, .283AVG.

Ron Shandler's Baseball Forecaster has A.Jones at 100R, 42HR, 122RBI, 2SB, .283AVG. (ranked as the #16 OF in a 4x4 roto)

Has anyone seen old "slant" around lately? I'd love to know how his team turned out...

Ok, this post perked my interest, so I entered your roster into my 2004 Draft Software Program, and let the computer draft for the other 11 teams. The computer picked it's players off of the ESPN Live Draft average list (with some randomness added), to make it draft more like a real person would for the other 11 teams. A strong team should finish at or near the top of this projection. I also keep track of a top 10 of all the teams I run through this program (public leagues only, for verification purposes), currently the #10 team got a score of 88... let's see how your team fared, shall we!?

The results are in.... drum roll please!

HRs - RBIs - Runs - SBs - AVE - Wins - Ks - Whip - ERA - Saves - Total
YourTeam 12 - 11 - 9 - 8 - 2 - 11 - 12 - 10 - 8 - 1 - 84
Rangers 8 - 12 - 11 - 4 - 6 - 1 - 1 - 12 - 12 - 12 - 79
Expose 5.5 - 8 - 12 - 9 - 12 - 5 - 4 - 8 - 4 - 7 - 74.5
Thunder Sticks 9 - 6 - 8 - 6 - 7 - 7 - 6 - 6 - 6 - 9 - 70
Mashers 7 - 7 - 10 - 11 - 11 - 2.5 - 2 - 5 - 10 - 4 - 69.5
D Cups 11 - 10 - 6 - 5 - 5 - 6 - 3 - 2 - 7 - 8 - 63
Runnin Turtles 4 - 4 - 7 - 3 - 3 - 2.5 - 7 - 11 - 11 - 10 - 62.5
Pink Steel 10 - 9 - 5 - 1 - 10 - 8 - 9 - 1 - 2 - 5 - 60
Cathederal Cakes 2 - 2 - 3 - 10 - 4 - 12 - 11 - 9 - 3 - 2 - 58
Pot Heads 3 - 3 - 4 - 7 - 9 - 4 - 5 - 3 - 5 - 11 - 54
Washed Up 5.5 - 5 - 1 - 2 - 1 - 10 - 10 - 7 - 9 - 3 - 53.5
Just Awful 1 - 1 - 2 - 12 - 8 - 9 - 8 - 4 - 1 - 6 - 52

Just Awful 1 - 1 - 2 - 12 - 8 - 9 - 8 - 4 - 1 - 6 - 52

A score of 84 is pretty good, but like others said nothing to wet your panties over. You only listed 4 bench players, yahoo public leagues have 5 bench slots, so I ran ALL teams with only 4 bench slots. Bench player stats are counted in this projection by the way. You obviously have tons of power, your average will suffer with Dunn and Batista. You need to get another closer besides Foulke.

Good luck,
