Just who is this 'numbersensei' character?: The scouting report.

According to Jon Heyman: "The Crawfish Boxes of the Houston Astros have been infiltrated by a blogger known only as 'numbersensei.' This apparently happened a few days ago, but like always, nobody tells me about stuff like this..."

By all accounts, sensei is seen as a relatively safe prospect, and as such does not possess elite, clack or Subber 10-esque upside, but could find a niche as a ccislanders or orangebloodkid-type... If he could ever figure out how to post a picture or gif. As an absoulte max, a MadMartygan ceiling is technically possible, albeit only with excellent coaching. As for his floor, without much extra development, he could wind up as a poor man's Patrick Harrel, providing solid commentary but somewhat inconsistantly.

sensei does seem to be blocked by fellow newcomers zacmorgan182 and Astrosforever, so he could be traded for depth at the "obvious homer" position, as TCB is relatively thin there beyond top prospect rambo2.

The flip side of that is sensei's strength's would seem to play up in his current blogspace, as a dry sense of humor is a necessity when rooting for a team as bad as the Astros have been in recent history, but would probably just get him in trouble elsewhere.

As for ranking within the TCB organization, this time last year, sensei might have cracked numerous Top 20 lists, but with the recent influx in talent, he probably struggles to make most people's Top 30. As of right now, he sits comfortably as a strong C, with room to improve.

/obviously just kidding, figured this would be a fun way to introduce myself. Important: my username is not referring to my supreme sabermetrics skills (yeah right), but rather my participation in the UIL event, Number Sense, which is doing math in your head. Anyway, like most crap I post/will post, this is not to be taken seriously. As evidenced by this 'report' I do appreciate, and have no problem with being on either side of, a well-placed jab. Hope no one is truly offended by the name drops, and if so, I humbly apologize. Go 'Stros.
