Busy Schedule

As many of you know, I spent the winter finishing my book Beyond Batting Average. Hence, I didn't do as much analysis on Tiger Tales as I usually do in the off-season. Along with promoting my book, I now have two other projects which will take priority over my blog this season.

First, I am covering the Tigers for John Burnson's Heater Magazine. Heater is a subscription fantasy baseball news site. If you are just looking for news on the Tigers, then Heater is probably not for you. However, if you are into fantasy baseball, I would recommend checking it out. You can see a sample issue or purchase a subscription here.

My newest project will be writing about relief pitchers from a fantasy baseball perspective at Baseball Prospectus. This is a collaboration between Heater and Baseball Prospectus. It will be part of BP's premium content. You can read more about it here.

I will continue to post at Tiger Tales but, for the time being, it will be difficult for me to continue the volume of analysis I have done in the past. I will comment on all the big news and will do an analysis here and there but it won't be as regular as it has been in past years.


  1. Lee, I wish you well in the new endeavor.
    It will be however, a little disappointing that there will be less of your great Tigers' analysis, charts, and graphs.

  2. Hi Lee:

    I too am sorry to hear you're cutting back on your fantastic postings here, but the BP gig sounds like an exciting new opportunity too :)

    I got your book yesterday from Lulu. Read the first forty pages or so. Very impressed so far. This appears to be just the kind of book I've been looking for for a long time - a book that explains SABR stuff at a relatively high level - but not so advanced that you need a PhD in stats to understand. Clear and insightful.


  3. Glad you will be able to reach a wider public, Lee. Good luck in this.
