Excerpt from the prior Blog
“I have him higher on my list than anyone else.”
It would seem that statement was made in error, as PECOTA ranks him at #13. I suppose I should try and spin this and now refer to myself as “The Machine,” hoping it catches on, but frankly couldn’t think of a more unlikely scenario than PECOTA and I agreeing on prospects. I don’t have Barfield ranked quite that high on my list, but think this is at least partial evidence that my revised methodology on second base prospects is sound from a statistical standpoint.
At least that’s the story I’m telling anyone who’ll listen.
