The only projections people don't laugh at are their own, and since most people don't do their own projections that means they laugh at them all.
Experience tells me that those who are laughed at the least are the most worthless because alls they do is mimic last season's statistics, and it is obvious that that is what most of you people want. The projections who are most laughed at are probably the best because they understand the realities of players' statistics; which is there are no constants but change from year to year.
Most people are just looking for confirmation for their own beliefs anyway, and if they read something that goes against it they mock it. I wish I could have a buck for every time someone picks Nomar/Sosa/Blalock 1-2-3 in a draft because I'd be a very rich man.
