Personally I have him higher than the source average. I can see him besting 25 HR and 100 RBI with an average in the .290's
Which sources do you compile? How many factor into your line for Cabrera? Do you inlude yourself as a souce
? I'm just curious.
Thus far I have 7 full sources and a couple partial ones. I think last year I had 10 or so and a couple old ones I eventually threw out. Just like last year, I normally hear they have projections up, right on this very forum
Maybe once or twice a week I add any new stuff or updates to the stuff I have.
So I don't bias the results, I keep my own projections out of it. I just want to know what the consensus is. As for particular sources, most are the usual (free) suspects. Rototimes (which is identical to USA Today BTW), Rotochamp, fsru, the data files from xiefrank's excellent program, Zips, and TSN (when they were running their free 3 day trial peek) I did scan projections from the one magazine I buy as well. I'm not sure if it's cool to name names on the paid for sources? The two partial sources are drafthelps projected stat leaders and Poulliot's partial position breakdowns on rotoworld (thus far about 15 each of C, 1B, 2B and 3B)
If I knew how to upload tables I considered posting the "average projections" in the Cafe. (something similar to the excellent compilation of rankings done here a few weeks back?) Was thinking I could update it periodically and was even considering the possibility of including any "premium" sources members might email me? Im sure their liscensing agreements might be an issue so i would definately NOT name those premium sources here.
A good idea?? Altho I don't often post, I get so much from this board, it'd be something I could give back?? One thing to realise about a compilation like this. Any real "outside the box" insight from any one given source will be watered down, but then again you get a "safe" guesstimate to use as you see fit .
