2009 AL MVP Showdown: Greinke vs. Mauer vs. Mr. X, or, the Race for Second Place, or, Ken Rosenthal, Avert Your Eyes

Joe Mauer is a great candidate for AL MVP... runner-up.. right behind Zack Greinke. But he's got competition even for that.

Jason Bartlett, for Real?

Jason Barlett's surprising season with the bat might be viewed as either a "breakout" heralding a new level of performance or simply a fluke. In reality, it's neither. But exactly how good a player overall is Bartlett? And how can we estimate it?

Lousy Lineup Optimizer: Pittsburgh Pirates

An optimized batting order only gains a team 5 to 15 runs a year, but to buy those marginal runs on the current free agent market usually costs a team from two to seven million dollars.

Choose your own projection

I did a little Fanpost at Royals Review... I originally was just going to do a generic WAR projection for the position pl ayers, averaging CHONE, PECTOA, and ZiPS, but then I came up with the idea do break it down into components by projection system so that people could "choose their own projection." Kind of a funny take referencing the old "choose your own adventure" books from my childhood or whatever. I thought it was a fun idea, anyway, to get people to understand how intuitive the notion of WAR really is, as well as letting them pick each projection they think is better, or to leave out parts they don't like (say, if they hate defensive stats). Would have been better with multiple choices for defensive projections or baserunning, of course, but given that I had to do the baserunning myself, I feel okay about it. I'm not an "official" Royals blogger or anything, but I thought this was sort of an entertaining twist on the usual projections post that other people might get a kick out of and maybe run with.
