The Hardball Times graphical reportPosted by Dave Studeman
As some of you know, the Hardball Times posted team stats and graphs the last six years, a practice we had to cancel this year when our economics could no longer support purchasing the data. I've been trying to figure out a way to get them to you ever since, and I think I've hit on a format that might work for you and me. (Readable for you, manageable workload for me).
Announcing...the Hardball Times Graphical Report. It's a nine-page Adobe Acrobat file that consists of a cover story (stolen from THT's pages this week) along with division standings and twelve different awesome graphs. Download it here:

All the information is current through yesterday's games. I haven't added any commentary to the graphs—perhaps I should. They're not exactly intuitive, but I do think they're very useful and worth a little work.
Anyway, what do you think? Is this download worth it to you? What would you like to see added or done differently? Gimme feedback.
