Peter Thomas: How’s that ZiPS 101 article coming?  I know it feels to you like self promotion, but there are sooooo many projection skeptics out there who could be converted if they better understood the process.

Jeff: What’s $/WAR at these days and how can I help make it better for the owners?

Avatar Dan Szymborski: Depends who you ask. Based on ZiPS projections, I still get the best predictor of salaries players get in the mid 7s.

Avatar Dan Szymborski: And it’s become increasingly nonlinear.

P: If anything, this Astros scandal only emboldens my faith in the team. Does that make me a bad person? And if so, why do I not care?

Avatar Dan Szymborski: Well, it’s better for this to embolden your faith than the Taubman stuff.
