Article Submissions
The Guru 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.

Criteria 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 report,

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.
