Another Awesome New Stat Site
Sean Smith, the creator of the CHONE projection system, has built his own site to house his projections, and he’s made it remarkably cool in one week’s time. For instance, check out Raul Ibanez’s expanded player page.
At the top, there’ his offensive projection for 2009. His total line comes out to +7 runs per 150 games played, compared to an average hitter. Below that, he lists the confidence level percentiles, showing a range of potential performances. Below that is his six year forecast. And, my favorite part, his user selected defensive ratings – you simply pick whether you think Ibanez is going to be an Excellent defender, a Good defender, an Average Defender, a Poor Defender, or a Putrid defender, and the corresponding win values and dollar values are listed for you.
Anyway, check it out. Sean’s site has a bunch of cool stuff on it.
