    Crowdsourcing the 2010Reds

    I am attempting to gauge the interest y'all might have in crowdsourcing projections for:

    *individual Reds hitters
    *individual Reds pitchers
    *team Won/Loss record (same as the annual W/L thread)
    *anything else

    It might be kind of interesting to keep the tally "live" with averages, lows and highs of everyone's picks. You can check out my idea for the hitters here.

    If interested, post in this thread! Some details...

    Each player will have his own "sheet" in the spreadsheet. So when you look at the template, this would be for a single player. Each Redszoner can put their name in column A and enter the stats to the right. The top will calculate average, high and low picks. The Summary sheet will give us an "average" Reds hitter (shudder!).

    I have it set up to calculate "slash" stats from counting stats. I was hoping to make it so each participant could decide if they want to enter the counting stats or just enter a full or even partial slash line.

    I figured we'd leave it open until the season starts so make sure those crystal balls are shiny and Nostradamus books translated!

    So far, I've just set up the hitter workbook. If there's enough interest, I'll continue with the pitchers. Then, this time next year, we can all drink wassail and hurl derision and invective towards each other as we laugh at our misguided picks! Holiday spirit and all!

    Let me know what you think!

    P.S. to the mods, please feel free to sticky and/or post to the Sun Deck as well

    Unless it's a crap idea and no one is interested, then delete ASAP!

    Ok, so this is basically a prediction thing? I'll participate. It will be good for some comic relief when people see my projections
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I'll play. Somebody has to lower the averages for Willy even more and I'm the guy for the job. How do we access the thing? I clicked on your link and got a page asking for the password.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    The best thing actually might be to post a thread for each player here, folks can enter whatever prognostications they desire and then it will get entered into the sheet. The link to that player's sheet can live in the top post of each thread along with the summaries.

    If anyone wants to help be a "data enterer," I could grant them access to the sheet.
