Teams don't let you in the scouting room for draft preparation either.

Sure, but it's a lot easier for someone like Eric to go watch those guys play and come to conclusions himself.
We don't have to report on a team's draft information when what they are seeing is publicly available.

Your "stay tuned" answer to both my ad comment and the kickstarter type thing got me thinking - I'd totally pay a decent amount to be FG member is it gave me ad-free and included (for example) access to a FG event that was guaranteed at least 1 for each MLB city and had a few writers/contributers.

You'll enjoy the announcement, then.

re: Fowler - he was a FA signing, not a trade. He will be missed, greatly, this season.

They originally acquired him for Luis Valbuena; he re-signed there on a bargain deal because he liked the organization. That doesn't happen if they don't trade for him.

If relievers get a leverage bonus to WAR, do starters get a leverage anti-bonus?
Dave Cameron

No, because most SPs have an average LI of right around 1.0.

What this chat needs - less Dave more Liberty!

Sorry.

And on that note, you're about to get less Dave.
Thanks for hanging out all year. We're looking forward to some fun stuff in 2017, and it should be a great year at FanGraphs. Have a great holiday season, and we'll chat again after the New Year.
