Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Keep 8, 12 team H2H, R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OPS, W, SV, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP
I have liked a 6-2 hitter pitcher split in the past but not sure I can justify keeping any other pitcher than Sale this year... Thoughts?
True there is strategy. I just feel that those in the front have a hands down advantage (I'd be curious to know how they finished in your league if they were competitive players) and you should be able to have the chance to own any player you want by strategy not luck of the draw. For example, if you have #5 pick there are 3-4 guys you have no chance to get. If you are #1 pick you will only get 1 guy in the top 20. The draft order basically creates your team although in the later rounds 5+ you can shake things up if you wanted.
Thanks for the offer but I really dislike leagues where you can miss out on the great hall of fame players like Trout and Miggy. Everyone should have a fair shot at them if you are willing to spend the coin in my opinion. Drawing the short end of the stick and ending up with the crawfords, ellsbury, fielder, harper, tulo, cargo, braun over the last 3 years is just not my cup of tee.
I'm not an NHL guy, thanks for the offer though. It's most likely a standard draft but it's a once in a year type league with this competition.
I will join if it is an auction draft. I don't like standard drafts as the skill of the draft drops dramatically. Will you join my NHL league auction draft for pros? The draft is Friday Night and will be stiff competition.
In the other league I took 2nd unfortunately falling 5-6 in the finals and that was the league I was most confident in before the matchup. I'm going to host a NHL Auction Draft Friday Night at 11PM EST called CHECK TO THE HEAD if anyone wants the opportunity to dethrone me. Hoping to get a league of all prior champions in one fantasy sport or the another. Added a couple positions but stats are standard scoring 6-4.
I don't value his power in a bubble, because it is average. But his power doesn't come in a bubble, it comes in a context. In this, the context is a Revere comparison, and I would value 14 more HRs from Ellsbury over Revere in exactly the same way I would value a guy who hits 44 Hrs over a guy who hits 30. And the RBI difference is even more glaring.
Try this... go to the player ranking page and sort by SBs, highest to lowest. Now start visually scrolling down the list. Notice who the guys are with big steals and similar power numbers to Ellsbury this year? Not many of them, are there? And all names of guys who won people leagues this year.
We aren't comparing him to revere. You're calling him a good fantasy player overall (top 49 you said), and my whole point is that if you're applauding Ellsbury's power now in this context it doesn't make sense. If you use power to put him over Revere then that means that you value the power he puts up which is average.
I had a great day and won 7-3. I was up 2 HR for the late games and put in Inciarte instead of AGone as I was down 1 in SB and he only had Rosario going. I had already won at that point but I kinda wish I put Gonzalez lol. I'll miss it too, I love it.
Average compared to whom? If you're comparing his power stats across the leauge, perhaps, but you're not in this context. You're comparing them to Revere.... and compared to Revere, his power stats are far greater.
