The Best of FanGraphs: March 14-18, 2016 by Paul Swydan March 19, 2016 Each week, we publish north of 100 posts on our various blogs. With this post, we hope to highlight 10 to 15 of them. You can read more on it here. The links below are color coded — green for FanGraphs, brown for RotoGraphs, dark red for The Hardball Times, orange for TechGraphs and blue for Community Research. ALL WEEK BOLD PREDICTIONS Like we always do about this time, the Bold Predictions are back. They’ll likely continue into next week, but this week was the kick off. Brad Johnson got us started, and he was followed by David Wiers, Eno Sarris, Joe Douglas (his are Ottoneu specific), Justin Mason, Scott Spratt, Ben Duronio, Blake Murphy, Tanner Bell, Josh Shepardson, Tom Oltarzewski (also Ottoneu specific) and Paul Kastava. This is perhaps my favorite running RotoGraphs yearly series, and I hope you dig in on every one of these.
