Hit rate is Hits Allowed per Balls in Play. You exclude hrs obviously. It is in Shandler's Forecaster. It's not a magic formula for hitters, as you need to establish 3 year trends to follow it closer. But in looking, he had a 30% rate in AA, and 31% in AAA, so i think 38%, is probably not the trend.

I will assume that that was meant to be 15-20 right DHC...

definetly I drafted him in one of my keeper leagues :-D

Don't get caught up in the hypnotic powers of the Forecaster, Hootie. I find it leads you down the wrong road more often than the right one.

Pretty much lol. What's $24? Consider it a extra XMAS present.

Why you buy it is a mystery to me, since you always slam it? The road only goes where the driver takes it.

SWINGER If you are interested in books, check out Amazon.com. They are much cheaper then in stores, about 25% to 30% savings, plus free shipping over $25 order. The Forecaster isn't discounted however, but Bill James Handbook and The Scouting NoteBook are. ;-D

Yeah, I've checked at amazon, and I'm considering it. But FB is still just a pasttime for me right now, and I'm not in any pay leagues.
