1. Hughes was a better choice than Joba for the 5 spot.

2. I'm hoping Hughes can build on this season and continue to progess as a starter.


Did Hughes make progress?? Im not being sarcastic, I am really curious...

Please, elaborate? All I say was major regression this year.

And with an attitude like that you never will. Hubris will get you a lot further than humility around here. What you know isn't nearly as important as how adamant you are that it is correct.

Do you mean their three year weighted average projections??? :*)
When it comes to exaggerating, I always give 110%.

when cbs asked for opinions on how to improve their product, I mentioned that 3 year stuff they are so fond of needs to be done away with. Maybe there will be something new to look at anyway

Nothing terribly wrong with a 3-year weighted average with some insight sprinkled in. Might not be the most time-intensive projections, but Marcel consistently has some of the best projections every season. Personally I like ZiPS and Chone (both free, both very good). Great for rate stats, while there are other sources to combine them with to factor in lineup/playing time. Projections are a hell of a lot better than rankings since there are a million and one different formats and strategies which makes rankings subjective and inaccurate in so many ways. It's pretty simple to do it yourself once the hard part (projections) are done.
