Hey, why didn't someone tell me that Clay Davenport's stuff is back?
EQA report, Playoff Chances, Adjusted Standings -- excellent.
I don't really have anything to say about it, other than I'm a big fan of Clay and his work. I could tell you stories about the long-ago days of rec.sport.baseball, but all I'll say is that it was one of those nice communities that comes around every once in a while, and I very much appreciated the friends I made there, and the chance I had, back then, to talk baseball with a whole bunch of people who (I soon found) knew quite a bit more than me, but were interested in talking about exactly the same sorts of things that I was interested in. And were, almost down the line (and certainly Clay included) just a bunch of nice, fun, people to talk with.
Anyway, I remain a fan of Baseball Prospectus, and I guess Clay is still attached to it, but I had missed his version of the stats there, and I'm glad to see them back.
And I'd start diving in and do a little talking about the adjusted standings, but I think I've had enough blogging for one day.
