THT Projections and Fantasy Roundtable linkPosted by Derek Carty at 9:38am
A couple tidbits today:
In case you missed it, Dave Studeman announced yesterday that THT's Projections will be on sale for $10. Click here if you'd like to buy them, or for $10 more, you could buy the entire THT 2009 Season Preview. Either way, you'll continue to receive updated projections throughout the off-season. In fact, there was an update just yesterday for those who've already purchased.
Fantasy Baseball Roundtable
This week's roundtable was hosted by the guys over at Razzball. Click here to read. This week's question:
What sabermetric or alternative statistic (e.g., Ground Ball ratio, Contact Rate, etc.) do you find to be highly over or undervalued for fantasy baseball player valuation purposes?
There's some interesting stuff in there, although it would have been nice to see some answers besides "BABIP." That might make a nice question when it comes to be our turn. "What advanced stats are overrated, and you're not allowed to mention BABIP". I don't agree with everything that was said (I conveyed those feelings in the comments section of the article), but again, it's definitely worth reading.
Don't forget today's THT Fantasy articles
