Community Playing Time Forecasts

Wait, is this THE Tom Tango?!


Sure thing!



A quote about this from the website:

Community Forecast

Playing Time


As I have been doing for a few years, I am using the Wisdom of Crowds approach to determine how often each player on your team is expected to play. Like my recent surveys, this one is available in real-time. Select your team, then choose how you think each player will be used.


Your results will be used as an input to the Marcel The Monkey Forecasting System (aka The Marcels), which is going to compete with all the bigshots out there in another project I am conducting. Who knows more about whether a pitcher will be in the starting rotation or the bullpen: an algorithm or a true fan? Who knows more about the number of games an injured Stephen Strasburg will play in 2011: an algorithm or a Nationals fan? There are certain human observation elements that are critical for forecasting. That's where you can come in, and why you are here. Thanks for helping.


The rosters are based on the 40-man rosters as of Mar 24, 2011, as shown on MLB.com, as well as select non-roster invitees (NRI) . If you have any write-in candidates beyond that, tell me.
