I agree with the hated Red Sox fans and the bitter Dodger fan...J35J's spreadsheet is great.

Any chances of putting in a draft tracker including projected team stats from the draft? I think rookies and Yoda were in on that last offseason and it would be a fantastic addition. Not sure if you added that capability in your later revisions of your sheet, but just asking anyway.

Keep up the good work, J. ;-D

I found Jason's spreadsheet to be very helpful this past year and definitely will be requesting it again next spring, Keep up the great work, it's much appreciated!
Jason, I know we're not even through the 09 season yet but I'm wondering your thoughts on a few pitchers for next year. What kind of numbers (roughly, before you put a whole bunch of thought into it) would you expect out of Chris Tilman, Brian Matusz, Tommy Hanson, Andrew Bailey, and JP Howell?

More links...to fangraphs and thebaseballcube. I'll be putting in more stats, both from the year before and more stats that I'll be adding to my predictions/projections. I'll also be adding in alot of comments for the majority of every player, so not only do you get my #'s but my thoughts as well.

I've been going back and forth with this...not sure yet.

With the extra stuff I'll be putting in it already I'm not even sure I'll have time to put something like that together....unless Yoda/Rookies just wants to combine theirs with mine....now that might be a plan! ;-D



Thanks guys...keep the comments coming. And I realize this probably isn't the best time of year to get alot of thoughts as the boards have really died down recently...but anyway....

I haven't even begun to look at things for next year yet but I really like Hanson and Bailey quite a bit. The other 3 are behind them.

You should set up a paypal account so people can donate. Seems like a fair compromise.

I've requested your spreadsheet or the past three seasons. I use my own series of workbooks that I have put together over the past 5-6 years, so I don't actually use this to draft with. Plus, I am pretty much set on my ways. I do however greatly respect your opinions & I feel like your projections and analysis are spot on, at least most of the time. So I like browsing your numbers. Seeing what you're thinking would be a nice addition. I personally would not pay for it, but I'm sure that it would be very helpful to others. You may be able to pick up a few bucks for your hard work. I think to make it really legit though, you would need to add the draft tracker as well as allowing it to become customizable to league size and scoring. I don't think that they still do it, but there used to be a place that had the mother of all baseball spreadsheets (I will not name them here). It was very flexible (standard/auction, one click updated projections, draft clock, etc). They charged $17. There is a free copy of their 2007 on the site now. But that could give you a bench mark to shoot for. I think you could market something like that much better here than where they had it.

Keep up the awesome work though. This is one of very few things that I always look forward to looking at every spring. ;-D

I have this on my sheet if you want to use it as a framework.
