Additions to the StatSpeak Team

Instead of my regularly scheduled post for today there have been some developments behind the scenes here at Statistically Speaking that Pizza Cutter and I are very happy to bring forth to the public.  We had a good talk about the future of this blog and decided to expand!
It is important in managing a blog to put out quality content as often as possible in order to keep readers coming back for more–how many times have you stopped going to a site because the main headline doesn’t change for three days at time?  We’ve spent this entire season attempting to build up and sustain our reputation as a premiere sabermetrics venue, and want to thank all of our readers for helping us get to that stage.
With that in mind, we are extremely happy and excited to bring onboard both Brian Cartwright and Colin Wyers.  Brian and Colin will be joining our team perhaps as early as this week.  They are both extremely talented statistical analysts who have been blogging or researching for quite some time.  Brian’s writing can be found at Seamheads.com while Colin runs his own blog, titled The Other Fifteen.  Both are also frequent commenters at The Book: Blog.
So, welcome Colin Wyers and Brian Cartwright to the StatSpeak team!

    Sweet… I love those guys (in a purely non-weird sense). Welcome… we don’t bite.

    Thanks for the kind words, folks.

    I was hoping we could get some more stuff from Colin. Nice. Brian, looking forward to see what you’ve got.
    Colin, any chance that we’ll be seeing combined fielding projections soon? Including regression to speed scores? Regression towards Tango’s Fans Scouting Report?

  7. Colin Wyers says:

    As far as fielding projections with the FSR, that’s incumbent upon Tango actually doing the FSR. I have historic FSR data that I can use to build the model off of.
