DMB Research and Baseball Articles

At Diamond Mind, we do a lot of baseball research as part of our effort to provide highly-accurate player ratings for the game. And we keep up with interesting studies being done by others like us. We thought others might be interested in some of this research, so we'll be posting articles on this page from time to time.
