The good thing is Ron is a friend and I can call or e-mail him and ask that he takes a look at the thread to make sure we are cool. Or one of his "spies" will put a bug in his ear and he'll shoot me a call or a note.
That said, the best place for a discussion on the Mayberry method is on the Baseball HQ forums themselves. Of course, that assumes you are a member.
For those reading this and are asking WTF? -- Ron Shandler introduced the Mayberry Method in the 2010 Baseball Forecaster. It is a system that puts a grade on certain skills to give a quick snapshot view of the player. For those that have read the description of the method and are familiar with how we give dollar values with category values (HR$, SB$ etc.), you may have asked yourself, "can't I just sort by category dollar value to get a lot of that info already?"
Yes, you can
Not all, but the primary reason we provide categorical values is for this very purpose. The MM might identify an available speed guy or power guy. You have always been able to do that here by sorting on HR$ or SB$.
In the name of full disclosure, I am not the best person to be discussing the MM, or some of the tools JP has in mind.
Doing what I do, I become rather intimate with the player pool. The tools JP has in mind and Ron's Mayberry method are designed for those that love fantasy baseball, but have other things going on as well, like jobs, and spouses, and looking for spouses and raising kids and trying to make kids and other hobbies. What you are supposed to glean from the MM score, I already know because due to the nature of what I do with projections and profiles.
One of the reasons JP is such a good fit for us is he has a better handle on this simplification and chunking of information than I do.
Am I hinting we have plans to include some ideas of our own with respect to "information at a glance?"
