Those who like stats are familiar with CHONE, which was the best projection system around. It was created by Sean Smith who is better known as Rally (rallymonkey5). Halos Heaven did an interview with him that I enjoyed reading so I figured I’d link to it here. My favorite is quoted below.
What happens when you take a player who isn’t that good at playing baseball but has a reputation as a great chemistry guy, and try to turn around a bad team with him? Worst case is you lose a lot of games and the chemistry still sucks. The hopelessness of the situation frustrates the player, who might have been a good chemistry guy as a role player on a better team, and now he’s part of the problem.
