The running of the monkeys —

Sal Baxamusa — The Hardball Times

Sal looks at the way the Marcel the Monkey projections change based on a ballplayers’ (in this case Torii Hunter and Andruw Jones) recent hot and cold streaks. His charts do a particularly good job of showing how short-term changes shape our overall picture of a player’s skills and future value.

His conclusion is pretty dull, considering how much fun the charts are (if you like charts), but that’s probably right, too.

Would anyone like to see more of these?
