Random Thoughts: Projections 

John Sickels has a "Young Pitcher Symposium" on Brandon Webb. He doesn't give his projections for Webb (these are more of a "Discuss" entry), but mentions the weirdness that is Webb. As one of the commenters points out (and Webb himself has suggested), it's possible his K/9 and BB/9 ratio failings in 2004 were due to a lack of confidence in his cement-gloved defense. We shall see, no?

After repeated checking of the UPS tracking page on my part, my copy of Baseball Prospectus 2005 arrived yesterday. I've only skimmed through the front of the book (oddly enough, Scott Boras is thanked twice in the acknowledgements) and haven't had a chance to read the player sections or essays in the back. I'll be using the book to aid in my player reviews which, though not terribly enlightening, should hopefully be slightly entertaining. You shall see soon. Also, Jonah Keri will be at Changing Hands bookstore in Tempe this Sunday night. Your intrepid blogger will be unable to attend, as he has other social obligations that evening that are impossible to wriggle out of (namely, we're having people over for dinner).
