Ladies and gents - the ramp up to 2017 draft season has begun! The first Big Board 2017 ranks go live today, and I present them this year with greater swagger than ever, as the reigning champion of the top division of Reddit's premier-league style "Sultans of Stats". In the past year, I've also graduated from being an underpaid graduate student to an underpaid owner of a PhD and Professor here at Stanford University. I promise you, I won't let that get in the way of baseball.
The beta version of this year's board is again a big jump forward from last year, with custom projections well underway. So far only steamer projections are available, and the slow rollout of ZiPS projections has begun over at FanGraphs. Let me know if you have any feature requests and keep an eye on the site as I'll start rolling out early versions soon.
