June 6, 2015 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day (Jim’s Best)

Before I post yesterday’s best hitters, I wanted to share a couple links. Over the last few days, Jim put together a list of the best minor league pitchers from both the American and National leagues for the month of May.  I’ve said it once and I’ll say it a thousand more times, Jim’s work boggles my mind.  The mixture of his quality work with his work/home schedule leaves me speechless sometimes.  Now, we’ve had many a discussion over the future of UTR and how we plan to project outward and what direction we want to go. Part of that process includes a step back into the classroom.  We’re moving forward in an attempt to gain more in-depth knowledge, a better understanding and apply fresh angles toward what we personally do. This is all due to us continuing to use TPS and PAG as our driving force. The beauty of each stat creation is how we can apply it to so many facets of the statistical foundation. I’ve often said, and I truly believe (which Jim grumbles in modest hesitation) that Jim’s TPS is destined to become one of the next great advanced statistical breakthroughs in fantasy baseball saber metrics.  Is TPS “there” yet, no, which Jim will tell you. But it’s getting there. PAG is a few years behind.  It’s a definite work in progress, yet it’s producing more favorable results each time I hit the drawing board.  I’ve dabbled with a few areas of interest during the current regular season, yet the vast the fruits of our UTR work comes via our off-season work. I encourage readers to not only scan through our “daily’s” as we like to call them, but the “Org. All-Star” links we provide during our daily’s to help reacquaint yourselves with these players of highlight.
