baseball quote of the day

From Steve Goldman's "You Could Look It Up" column on BaseballProspectus.com, regarding the PECOTA player projections that will appear in the Baseball Prospectus 2008 book:

The [PECOTA] comparables are only supposed to suggest what a player might do in a particular year; if the top comparables for young outfielder Johnny Wetcougar, 22, are Dave Winfield and Ed Delahanty, the most you can infer is that the system likes him and thinks he’s going to be a good hitter in the style of those players at a similar point in their career. The comparables do not suggest either that Wetcougar will deliver 3000 hits like Winfield or get drunk and fall off of an open drawbridge like Delahanty.
