First, I just want to say that I don't intend to run this as a weekly blog this time around. I simply don't have the time or commitment to do so. I will be doing a preseason breakdown based on last season's statistics.This year I will be looking at the official MLS game instead of the ESPN game.
I managed to input into a database all of the data (such as recoveries, crosses, key passes, etc.) for all players with at least 1,000 minutes played last year. I've separated them out by position and will be using that data to project how many points a player could earn over this season.
I'll also do my typical projection of how many goals a team is projected to score and concede each game based on how many they scored and conceded home and away last season.
So, expect a flurry of posts over the next two or three weeks and then back to blackout for several weeks until I find the gumption to give my revised projections and suggestions.
