Analysis, Articles by our Gurus: There's a giant body of worthy
baseball research that never gets published or has become long out of print.
This effort taps into it. Choose an author on the left or click on a word
cloud. Awseome search at top of the page might work if you have something
particular in mind.
invites Sabermatricians, baseball historians and everybody else to submit
interesting analysis for the public to read. Please submit articles by
emailing the Guru. Articles may
be edited before publishing. Please follow these instructions carefully:
Include your return email address, your website URL (if you have one), what
type of baseball research you do, a brief bio and any contact info you'd
like to make available to readers. If you wish to arrange to have your article
available by subscription only, then indicate that preference in your email
and we will make financial arrangements.
for Article Submissions - Readers should know that when
they click on a link to an article, even one written by a non-guru, that
something original and worthwhile will pop up on their screen. While we cannot
always achieve this, it is our mission. Examples of original items for the
analysis section are as follows:
News reports - such as Gary Garland’s daily Japan baseball box
scores and daily game summaries translated into English,
Annotated photos taken from an event - such as Charlie Haeffner’s
HOF photos and Joe Mocks Ballpark shots,
Personal experiences - such as Mike McCann’s monthly Minor League
Interviews - such as John Holway’s series on the Ladies Leagues
and the Negro Leagues,
Historical diaries – such as Bruce Markusen’s daily series
on the 1972 A’s and Max Blue’s detailed account of the NY Giants
1916 historic winning streak,
Articles based on facts from various sources used as evidence to prove
a point revealing new understanding of a topic - such as Jim Albright’s
series on Sadaharu Oh and
Use of another author’s formula on a different data set to prove
a point - such as Jeff Mordock’s use of Bill James' Hall of Fame
Monitor in his assessment of active players,
Presentation of baseball history using an original formula - such
as John Korsgaard’s position research or Craig Tomarkin's series on
the greatest teams of all time.
