re: The ATL Thread Offseason Edition: Baseball America releases Braves Top 10 - volfan30
The top 9 (10 of you include Maitan) seem to be pretty consensus, with the order varying depending on who is ranking them. 11-20 is another tier and then you have about 20 guys pretty close imo. Last 10 guys on your list are org types at best imo, although Herbert, Parsons and Hursh are interesting....

re: 247 Article - volfan30
Daniel Hood is beyond naive. It is an absolute joke that two players on the team got Dave Lawson fired, which is exactly what happened. Maybe he should have been fired, but allowing players to dictate staffing decisions is very backwards. The part about allowing certain players to dictate ...

re: KenPom SEC Hoops Update (Quality Wins and Bad Losses so far) - volfan30
I am coming around on him, though I still think he needs to find a way to land a stud or two. This gigantic freshman class is much better than I anticipated. No one on the roster who is totally outclassed at this level like you saw with Martin's lower tier guys and Tyndall's lone freshman class. ...

re: KenPom SEC Hoops Update (Quality Wins and Bad Losses so far) - volfan30
[quote]So KenPom is still heavily reliant on preseason expectations, is that right? Meanwhile, in our example, AU went from like 200 to 20 something in RPI because it's focused on where we stand today (at least how RPI gauges it). I'm not arguing for RPI over KenPom, as it makes no more intuitiv...

I would encourage you to read this. [link=(http://kenpom.com/blog/ratings-explanation/)]LINK[/link] As I said it is dynamic and if AU continues to surpass the formula's expectations they will continue to rise. The portion of the formula that is predictive decreases each day until it has no imp...

re: KenPom SEC Hoops Update (Quality Wins and Bad Losses so far) - volfan30
KenPom is predictive (whereas the RPI is not) thus it is much less prone to fluctuations. By February though KenPom is straight data with no predictions or other weights. For example the top 10 in KenPom is Villanova Duke UNC Kentucky Kansas Virginia Louisville Wisconsin West Virginia ...

KenPom SEC Hoops Update (Quality Wins and Bad Losses so far) - volfan30
This is a far better methodology than RPI until about mid-February. The two usually get pretty close together by the end of the season as the RPI normalizes. The SEC has done a tremendous job of avoiding losses to sub 100 teams (Only 3 so far). Some good chances to get top 50 wins here in the ne...
