Bill James On Mike Piazza

MMO reader Pete Sinapi, sent me a link to an article written by Bill James about a year ago in which he stated his case for Mike Piazza as a Hall of Famer. It was very compelling and worth sharing with the MMO community. He uses Runs Created which he invented and has since evolved into other popular stats such as wRC. In his Baseball Abstract, James explains that it is essential...

Your Morning Dump...where Bill James knew all along

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump But when it came to projecting Sox players last season, James had a very good year. He was too high on Will Middlebrooks and too low on Daniel Nava, but close on many of the team’s other key components. He...

Geddy Lee Says He Checks Box Scores During Rush Shows, Studies Bill James, Sabermetrics (Video)

Is Rush Canada’s most popular export? As much as we love maple syrup and moose, it’s probably true. Well, singer, bassist and frontman Geddy Lee is sticking with his home country, and has been a Toronto Blue Jays fan for years. In fact, he’s often been spotted hanging out at Rogers Centre, cheering the team on. Likewise, with the Jays having completed an impressive offseason...

Bill James Projections For The Yankees Starters

These are the type of posts I absolutely dread writing. Projections, predictions, prognostication, life-line reading, forecasting, reading the smoke from a burned sacrifice; they all have their place, but often rely so heavily on things out of personal control, or flat out guessing, that indulging in them is largely a time wasting exercise. You can [...]

Examining Bill James 2012 Mike Stanton Projection

I love me some Mike Stanton. Anytime there is a power hitting corner outfielder with youth on their side, there’s a good chance I’ll feel the exact same way about them as I do Stanton. The tape-measure video game bombs, the build, he’s got it all right now. It could be said that Mike Stanton makes our world a better place. I knew that I was onto something with Stanton about...

Alex Gordon - Sudden Superstar

Long before there was Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas, there was Alex Gordon. And while the former two along with Lorenzo Cain (and others) form the core of the hopes of Kansas City fans, Alex Gordon finally took his rightful place as a star in Major League Baseball. And Gordon did so far out of the spotlight accorded the two young phenoms. And it was totally unexpected. The only...

2012 Bill James Projections

It’s the offseason. That means hot stove rumors. That means prospect rankings. And that means projections. Bill James’ projections, which he publishes in his yearly handbook, were added to Fangraphs player pages about a week ago. As far as I know, they’re not all published in one place, so it’s hard to just look at all the Giants’ projections unless you want to dig through...
