Finally, the hitter projections
Download away here:
Last year I projected every major leaguer, and selected a group of top minor leaguers. This year I started to sort out the minor leaguers to project, and decided to not to take the time to select them. Instead, why not see if my computer can handle them all?
And it did, I have every batter who played in a full season league in 2007. Maybe not everyone, I probably went with a playing time cutoff to knock the pitchers out somewhere along the line, but I've got over 2000 players here, including the return of Dallas McPherson and the latest Japanese star, Kosuke Fukudome.
Playing time estimates for CHONE are intentionally optimistic, I have a few variations of playing time estimators for every player, and in the end CHONE selects the one that gives a player the most playing time. So there's more playing time projected for all these players than can actually be had, scrubs are more likely to be projected at 350 PA than 50, but durable players like Rollins and Tejada will be projected for more time than injury prone types like Nomar or McPherson.
Its a csv file, for you internet explorer users it will open up in excel for you, assuming you have excel. For firefox users, you are probably computer savvy and this will seem painfully obvious, but if not it will open into a text file, just copy into excel, paste, and use the text to columns feature to use this. I tried uploading this into excel but for some reason the file kept getting corrupted. I tried CSV and it worked, with the added bonus that CSV files are 1/3 the size.
