The White Whale

Call me Grant Desme.

Some years ago-never mind how long precisely-having little to no analytical or writing experience, but nothing particular to do in my downtime, I thought I would start a baseball blog and see the nerdy part of the world.

However my ship has sailed, life has changed and I will no longer be providing baseball analysis on the internet. I am now a licensed Pentecostal minister and the youth pastor at my church. That, combined with a new job with increased responsibilities have taken away much of the downtime I previously used to analyze statistics.

The next few paragraphs are the reminiscences of an amateur baseball blogger, so please indulge me. Toward the end of this post, I provide a challenge to the sports analytical community at large.

I started on Blogspot in September 2010 with a poem about Stephen Strasburg’s injury that not even my mom read. Four years later, I was blessed to get an article in the 2015 Hardball Times and well…I don’t think my mom read that either, but she is a proud owner of the book!

Over the years, many people were instrumental in getting me greater exposure to the baseball world. In 2011, R.J. Anderson and Tommy Rancel at The Process Report took the first gamble on me. Unfortunately this also led to a lifetime of Rays fandom and disappointment.

A month later, Justin Bopp brought me on at Beyond the Boxscore after reading a community post, Full on Double Wildcard–still one of my favorite titles–and getting to know me through the now-defunct baseball MMORPG 2 Out Rally. Bopp also brought me on at MLB Daily Dish, allowing me to expand my writing horizons into a more journalistic style.

One month after that, David Pease approached me about working at Baseball Prospectus, an offer a baseball writer can’t refuse. My time there was short-lived, mostly because my life was changing at that point just as it has been for the past few months. I started dating my future wife and spending time with her won out over running SQL queries on baseball statistics. I made the right choice ;). However, in that short period and only nine months after my first attempt at baseball writing, I was able to get published on ESPN.com, definitely a highlight in my “career.”

A month after that, I achieved international fame (where’s the sarcasm font when you need it?) by calling out the White Sox as the accusatory team in the “Man in White” incident.

I spent most of that year writing odds and ends here on my personal blog, reappearing in February 2012 at the Platoon Advantage, thanks to the invitation of “Saberboy” Bill Parker and Michael “The Common Man” Bates.

Finally, Bryan Grosnick asked me back to Beyond the Boxscore in 2013 and that’s where I stayed until finally hanging them up this year.

Many people helped me throughout the four-and-a-half years of on-again, off-again writing in addition to those already mentioned. I’m going to list a bunch of names and if I leave anyone off, I apologize as it was an honor writing and working with everyone. I’m also grateful to anyone who ever spent some of their precious time reading one of my articles.

So thanks go to…Chris Adragna, Cee Angi, Andrew Ball, John Choiniere, Carson Cistulli, Bryan Cole, JJ Cooper, Mike Fast, Adam Foster, Steven Goldman, Jordan Gorosh, Joe Hamrahi, Sky Kalkman, Sean Lahman, Keith Law, Mitchel Lichtman, Ben Lindbergh, Scott Lindholm, Stephen Loftus, Christopher Long, John Manuel, Rob McQuown, Jonathan Mitchell, Alan Nathan, Marc Normandin, Harry Pavlidis, Bill Petti, Jon Roegele, Eno Sarris, Ronit Shah, Mark Simon, Paul Swydan, Tom Tango, Lee Trocinski, Dan Turkenkopf, Stuart Wallace, Neil Weinberg, Daren Willman, Jason Wojciechowski, Colin Wyers, Jeff Zimmerman…and of course no list would be complete without a massive thank you to Sean Forman, Bill James, Pete Palmer and many of the legends upon which all future work is built.

And future work is where the challenge lies.

The online baseball community as a whole could grow in understanding by leaps and bounds if it was more well-read and stopped redoing the work that others have already completed. There can be a good side to repeat work as it helps the individual writer understand the underlying parts of various concepts but there must be links and attribution to previous work.

I believe part of this inundation of repetition comes from the monetization of websites and the focus on page views. This allows for higher quality work where writers can go full-time and focus on baseball, but also waters down the pool of information. It is exceedingly difficult to take analysis seriously when the reader must scroll through clickbait about Chloe Moretz’s dress or how switching to Geico is as easy as pie before getting to the comments section. It also means the writer has to pump out articles in order to get paid, regardless of if the work is novel or necessary. This has led to the availability of data and information like never before, but it has also led to a lot of reproduction of work. Again, this is not always bad, but if work is to be repeated, previous or similar work should at least be cited.

This is actually a fairly easy problem to make an impact on, though. Of course if you are a baseball writer, you should be reading work from everywhere as it helps you make connections in your mind and come up with more writing ideas. Furthermore, if you have an idea for an article but can’t remember reading anything about it, visit your favorite search engine first. It could be Google or Bing or even DuckDuckGo, but at least do a cursory search on the topic before you even start to pull the data or write the article. If you find someone who did this work already, great! You have a starting point! Reach out to that writer, see if he or she has any ideas on furthering the research or anything he thought to add later. If you don’t find anything, at least you’ve covered your bases. Finally, the Saber Archive is an amazing opportunity to build a public wealth of knowledge of baseball. But please, if you know of previous research that has been done on a subject that you write about, link to it! It’s the proper and kind thing to do, particularly if you are writing for a top site and similar work has appeared on other top sites. It’s also a wonderful opportunity to shine light on great work that not many people have read. If you are unaware of the other work–read more. It’s your job.

But it’s not mine anymore! You will still be able to reach me on Twitter if you have any questions on research I have done or just want to chat. I realize that I am but a pawn in the grand scheme of the baseball community at large and that time will pass, new writers will arrive, and my name will be (and is already) but a fading memory. But hopefully, whether through home run damage or JAVIER or some other work, I made some kind of an impact–no matter how small–on our understanding of the game we all love so much.

Now small fowls flew screaming over the yet yawning gulf; a sullen white surf beat against its steep sides; then all collapsed, and the great shroud of the sea rolled on as it rolled five thousand years ago.


Taking a look at 2015 pre-season prospect rankings

What follows is a thorough analysis of my consensus top 184 prospects. I have done this in 2011, 20122013, and 2014 and have always received extremely positive reviews of it, so here we are for a fifth time!

Likes: The list places a prospect at least two standard deviations below the compiled ranking. A prospect must be on at least five regular or four fantasy lists to qualify.

Dislikes: The list places a prospect at least two standard deviations above the compiled ranking. A prospect must be on at least five regular or four fantasy lists to qualify.

Surprising Inclusion: The list includes a prospect ranked better than 80 which is only included on at most four regular or two fantasy lists.

Surprising Exclusion: The list does not include a prospect that is ranked anywhere on at least eight regular or six fantasy lists. For Royals Review this includes players only in the top 70 compiled. For CBS Sports, Dynasty Sports Empire, Razzball, and Sporting News, this includes players only in the top 50 compiled.

Compiled Rank: To determine overall rank, I gave each player a certain total depending where he was ranked on each list. a #1 ranking equals 150 points and a 150 ranking equals 1 point. These are all added together and the prospect with the highest total is ranked first.

2015 Top 184 Compiled Prospect List

Finally, the overall compilation of top prospects! What’s better than a top 100 prospect list? Twenty-one of them! Every time a player appears on a list, he is given 151 minus his ranking number of points (A ranking of No. 1 gives 150 points). All of the points are added up and the player with the highest total is ranked at the top. The reason I do this instead of taking the average ranking is very simple: It’s better.

Take Mike Foltynewicz for example. He appears on seven lists with an average ranking of 69. However, his total points ranking is 90. We must take into account the fact that not all players are ranked by all lists, so an average ranking is misleading.

I split the list into two – regular and fantasy. Each type of list focuses on different parts of a player and they should be separate. I found 13 regular lists and eight fantasy lists.

Unfortunately, not all lists have the same criteria and as a result, many did not rank Cuban imports Yoan Moncada, Rusney Castillo, or Yasmany Tomas. In order to keep a good ranking system, I placed the average of each of these player’s rankings from the other lists in those empty slots. This is how Castillo placed as the number 28 prospect, even though he was only ranked on five of the 13 lists. Raisel Iglesias and Jung-ho Kang were not even ranked by all lists where they were eligible so I did not include any extra rankings for them.

Moncada was a different animal altogether, as he signed so late and lists that may have ranked him came out before he was eligible. Baseball America said he would rank as the number 10 prospect and others have said he is similar in value to J.P. Crawford (ranked 19). So for the lists that did not rank Moncada, I gave him a ranking of 15. This slots him in as the number 11 prospect in baseball, just behind Miguel Sano, whom Ben Badler compared Moncada to back in January.

I will post an analysis comparing each of these lists and link it once it goes live. Here is a spreadsheet with all of the rankings together. You can view the team compilations for 2015 here and compiled prospect lists going back to 2011 here. I also have done a lot of prospect ranking and statistical analysis, including creating my own prospect comparison system called JAVIER and you can find those links here. That link also includes a downloadable database for every top 100 prospect ranking I could find since 1990, but does not yet include the 2015 rankings. Enjoy!

2015 New York Yankees Unified Top Prospect List

It’s that time of year again–unified prospect list season! It seems that these lists come out later every year. I want to just get these finished and done with before the season starts, so those sources that have not completed their rankings yet (looking at you MLB dot com…) will not be included in this combined list.

I scrapped much of the additional coverage this year (like the graphical representation and prospects missing from the list from last year) due to time constraints.

As always, you can view a full spreadsheet for every site’s ranking for the team here, see the team list from 2014 here and view all other team lists for 2015 here.

2015 Detroit Tigers Unified Top Prospect List

It’s that time of year again–unified prospect list season! It seems that these lists come out later every year. I want to just get these finished and done with before the season starts, so those sources that have not completed their rankings yet (looking at you MLB dot com…) will not be included in this combined list.

I scrapped much of the additional coverage this year (like the graphical representation and prospects missing from the list from last year) due to time constraints.

As always, you can view a full spreadsheet for every site’s ranking for the team here, see the team list from 2014 here and view all other team lists for 2015 here.
