Sexson projection sent out

The community projection for Richie Sexson has been emailed to those on the list. It will be open until tomorrow afternoon. If you’re having problems editing the sheet and find yourself in “view only” mode, make sure you are signed into Google Accounts – you don’t have to use a gmail address to receive the spreadsheet, but you must be logged into Google to perform edits.

Also, if you’re interested in helping the guy who runs Hit Tracker Online, he’s looking for some extra eyeballs this year. Here’s his blurb to attract volunteers:

So, here’s how a volunteer could help. First of all, to become a volunteer, a person has to be willing and capable to accurately make “observations” of batted balls. This involves having access to MLB video (via MLB.TV and/or MLB EI, Directv says hello), owning a stopwatch and some spare time. Needless to say, it also helps if you are a baseball and sabermetric fanatic…

To the volunteers I have provided an observation program (in Excel), and then checked them out on some homers to make sure they were doing an acceptable job of timing and spotting. Closer to the start of the season I am going to provide each volunteer with some additional programs to pull weather and box score data, and to put the observation data in the right format for upload to the site. Once the season starts we’ll figure out who’s going to cover which games, and hopefully we’ll all be able to take time off when we need it .

I would be delighted to have anyone who’s interested contact me about volunteering! You don’t have to do any set amount of games; if you’re able to make solid observations, I’ll be happy for any contribution you can provide.

If anyone has suggestions, questions or comments about Hit Tracker, please send them to

    There might be people like me that have multiple Google accounts. You need to be signed in with the same email address you provided Dave.
