Profile: Janet Eagleson

Janet Eagleson's inside voice -- one laced with equal parts sarcasm and humor -- tends to end up "outside" a whole lot. But that's what makes her a must-read -- she says the things we often think but don't ever say. One reader even used her name in the same breath as hockey blowhard, Don Cherry... minus the bad suits and bad proununciation, of course. She's a veteran fantasy writer with a trophy case filled with honors -- she took home the Fantasy Hockey Writer of the Year award from the Fantasy Sports Writers' Association (FSWA) in 2006 and 2007, and was a finalist for the same award in 2008. She covers the Buds and Bolts for Rotowire and writes a weekly hockey column for Yahoo! Fantasy Sports during the season. And most recently, she turned her fantasy hockey winnings into a coveted, stainless steel Weber bbq. Sweet... and smoked.

Do Analytics Take the Fun Out of Sports?
Apparently that was the topic of one of the presentations at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference in Boston last week. The presenter, Yale's Edward Tufte, opined:

Don't let people tell you analytics are reductionist and take the joy out of sports. They mostly just take the stupidity out of sports.

Is he right?

RotoWire's AL LABR Squad
The 2014 AL LABR auction went down at the Arizona Republic offices in downtown Phoenix Saturday night. It's a 12-team, 5 x 5, AL-only league with 2 C, 1 1B, 1 2B. 1 3B, 1 SS, 1 CI, 1 MI, 5 OF, 1 U and 9 pitchers. Everyone has $260 to spend.
The Problem With Drafting Billy Hamilton
Billy Hamilton went for $28 in the NL LABR auction this past weekend. I discussed this with a fellow writer who participates in Tout Wars with me later this month and we discussed the problem with investing heavily into Hamilton.
Payne's Daily Fantasy Basketball Experiment
Let's see if I can make any money doing daily fantasy hoops.
My 12-Team NFBC RotoWire Online Championship Team
I drafted out of the 11-hole for the "Beat Chris Liss" league. I had done a fair amount of research on optimal roster construction from that slot, and I decided I'd go hitter in the first round, three pitchers in 2-4 and then hitting for the next 10 rounds or so before filling in with upside pitchers late.
