It’s mid-January. What does that mean for me?
It means spreadsheet time.
I love playing fantasy baseball, and the people that succeed at fantasy baseball tend to be the ones who find some sort of statistical edge over the other guys in terms of figuring out who the best “bang for the buck” players are. As baseball has gotten better and better at statistics, this has become harder and harder.
Each season, I start off in January by trying to find patterns in the last few years of data. Is there anything I can find that indicates a jump or a dropoff in performance between players?
I sometimes find new things, but the search actually gets harder (and more interesting) each year.
