Introducing…Consensus Baseball Projections

Feb 15, 2012

On the heels of our Consensus Rankings launch, we’re happy to unveil a new product today that has been a top suggestion from readers: Consensus Projections. That’s right – You can now pick & choose your favorite projection sources & view their consolidated output (for free!).

In the spirit of naming projection systems after players (e.g. CAIRO, PECOTA, etc), we’re labeling our output “Zeile Projections” in honor of the immortal Todd Zeile. At least, we think Todd’s immortal considering he survived 16 seasons across 11 different teams.

So why exactly are we naming projections after Todd Zeile, you ask? Consider the following:

    • The variety of teams Zeile played for is a model of inspiration for us. Similar to our consensus rankings, we plan to incorporate projections from many sources.
    • Zeile was a versatile player. He suited up behind the plate and also played both corner infield positions. We aim to match that versatility by letting you create your own set of consensus projections, albeit with fewer errors than our namesake.
    • The backbone of any good set of projections is solid technology. As the above photo (from the ‘90s) suggests, Todd Zeile embraces technological advancement.
    • Zeile is reportedly a direct descendent of Founding Father, John Adams. This can only be good for credibility, right?

With all that said, Zeile Projections are initially pulling in data from Marcel, RotoChamp, FanGraphs, CBS Sports, & KFFL with more sites to come. The projections are also fully sortable by stat category, including the option to see high/low values for each player.

Feel free to let us know if there are projections you’d  like to see added into the mix. Any other feedback is appreciated as well. Thanks!
