Hardball TimesJeff Sackman has written a very nice piece over at Hardball Times about Matsuzaka and his value. He's been kind enough to link to me and cite my work here. In light of the impending bidding, I think it's a good read.
I'd also like to look at my rough MLB projections for a second. I believe that the method I employed was sound, but that their are some additional factors that aren't present in the calculations that probably will push Matsuzaka's ERA into the low to mid 3's. That doesn't change my opinion of his talent or his impact on the league, but it seems more realistic.
Enjoy the article.
