Don't pay for projections, look at the information and make up your own mind. ;-D

Pay for information (e.g Baseball Forecaster) = WIN
Paying to regurgitate someone else's opinions = FAIL

Just last year we had OVER 30 guys who had 30+ HR's and 100 + rbi's in reality..I prefer seeing Bill James,HQ or Rotoworld where they are more realistic to me and don't just project 8-10 guys to go 30/100..Just my thoughts.


You have to look at the plate appearances or innings pitched, which is what BP uses as injury risk or playing time hedging. Blow those up to what you think or hope a guy could potentially get and you get closer to what you'd probably expect. But yeh sometimes the way they do that causes weird issues and such.

No, they preach "figure it out for yourself" a lot.

They should look into a name change.
