I've been very busy with another baseball project (which you'll find out about later) but I'll get back to my off-season sabermetric analysis shortly. I have done a few analyses of the batting already. The pitching data is now ready and I'll start those analyses this week. As I did the last couple of years, I will rank all the players in baseball using a system that combines all the fielding metrics. I still have a lot of data entry to do though. Finally, I'll look at base running once the retrosheet play by play database is ready.
For today, I'm including links to do great analyses of the Tigers fielding in 2007 versus 2008. Bill Ferris and Mark Anderson both think that the Tigers have improved their defense significantly this off-season and I agree.
