Marcel spreadsheets for batters
Following up on my earlier post about historical Marcels, I’ve just posted full spreadsheets with Marcel forecasts for hitters going back to 1901.
For each year, I included a prediction for every non-pitcher who appeared in any of the previous three seasons, or would be a rookie that year. (For the rookies, of course, the prediction is very close to league average.) I didn’t distinguish at all between leagues, which I’m sure creates some wonkiness, especially around the years of the Federal League, the years of World War II, and the last few seasons, when the AL/NL difference became stark.
Click here for the directory with single-year spreadsheets available for download. At some point in the near future I’ll add pitchers, and at some point in the less-near future I’ll make a more user-friendly interface so that you can view the stats directly on the web.
