BaseballGuru.com's Braintrust Newsletter, September 2001
Hi Braintrust subscribers!
As promised, I'm sharing the recent developments at BaseballGuru.com. Aside from the graphical facelift, I've added lots of new content and want to share my new ideas for expansion.
First, I'm very proud to introduce the Guru's FAMOUS Baseball Game. It's my expression of many years of baseball simulation research. You simulate games by managing players based on their real stats from all eras of baseball. It's a real lesson in baseball history. You learn about the great teams of the past and discover dimensions about player's fielding and base running skills that are not evident from traditional statistics. Pitcher's stats come alive with apples to apples cross-era comparisons. I even calculated expected salaries in scale dollars based on actual performance for each player, tuned to the late 1980's to early 1990's pay scale. Anyway, it's easy to play and it's free to try.
Second, I'm expanding BaseballGuru.com into a hub for baseball analysis. I invite anyone who has done baseball research to post it on my site. Hopefully this will provide additional exposure for all of your hard work. People may also post articles for sale if they wish. Please email me for details. The idea behind my site has always been to provide a vast resource to ALL baseball fans; and I'm trying my best to live up to that promise. If we were a true Braintrust, then the Baseball Guru ought to share articles and info that you can't find on Amazon and the newsletter ought to reflect that.
In future newsletters, I'd love to share some of the interesting emails I've received and promote all of your baseball interests.
Thanks for all of the support and enthusiasm that many of you have shown during the startup process.
