RotoGraphs Launch!

Welcome to RotoGraphs!

Originally FanGraphs was started as a fantasy baseball analysis tool. I use FanGraphs constantly to make decisions in my fantasy baseball league and with a combination of luck and smart moves often prompted by the information available on FanGraphs, I’ve won my league 4 out of the past 5 years.

I have a couple goals for this blog:

1. To make fantasy analysis easy for you. We’ve assembled an excellent team of writers and analysts to break down the numbers for you. Whether you agree with their analysis is up for you to decide, but they will be giving you their unique perspective on players using many of the metrics available on FanGraphs.

2. It’s my hope that as you read the analysis available on this blog, you’ll become more accustom to the style in which we analyze players, prompting you to do your own analysis if you so choose.

Our team of writers consists of (in alphabetical order):

Peter Bendix of
David Golebiewski of ESPN Inside Edge and
Marc Hulet of and the blog
Brian Joura of and

I know baseball season just ended, but it’s never too early to start preparing for next season and we’ll be blogging multiple times a day, about as many players and strategies as possible.
