Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
DickWrong announced that no fantasy team should have Segura on its roster after Segura's very good first 5 weeks, where he was getting on base, stealing bases, scoring runs, and batting in a prime spot in the D'Backs line-up.
You are the dimwit who wrote that "no fantasy team should ever have Segura on its roster." You were wrong then, and continue to be wrong. Change your user name to #$%$ Wrong.
If this post does not revolve around Stanton i refuse to read it.. Btw, Strong what happened to Taylor Motter?
Um...so...why does everybody in these forums swear their private league is super-duper-ultra-uber competitive?
You still have 12 teams. There isn't really any more depth and there are always nimrods that have no idea how to properly value players.
P. S. - You would be much more "competitive" if you jettisoned Ortiz, Trumbo, and Beltran for guys that actually steal bases.
Gee...because shortstop is such a shallow position...
...but hey...your once in a lifetime player, Segura, has been handily outperformed by the "ALL WORLD" baseball talent...
Congratulations...you're a nimrod.
FYI...I currently have Bogaerts and Lindor on my team. Guess where they rank in relation to Segura?
Yup...you're a loser.
Jean Segura sucks? Oh, right, other than the 89 R, 16 HR's, 56 RBI, 30 SB, .317 BA, .362 OBP. Other than those stats, he is terrible.
Yeah, and how about the Nolan Arenado, who has such limited value that you are better off with clowns like Hernan Perez. Arenado is polluting my team with 107 R, 37 (!) HR, 121 (!) RBI's, .296 BA, .363 OBP, and .576 slugging.
I am so angry that I failed to listen to #$%$'s advice and have Segura and Arenado on my teams.
I am a mathematics genius.
I can't really dumb it down any more for you. Those that can dumb high level stuff down are teachers, not doers. Most mathematics genius cannot explain higher level thought processes to minions.
Fine team I guess. Nowhere near best ever. My 2016 team would be much closer to best ever. 12 team H2H snake draft. Incredibly competitive league. Maybe the most competitive of all time. I got this team primarily on draft skill and willingness to grab hot players off the wire. Also willingness to trade a few big names for hot players other managers kept counting on to cool off. This is a lesson for all of you. Screw name value. Always play for the numbers. Of course, I'm in first place by a pretty huge margin and will almost certainly win the playoffs. My team as configured right now:
BN) Marte, Bogaerts
SP) Quintana, Roark, Verlander, Hendricks, Porcello,Duffy, Maeda, Happ
RP) Osuna, Colome, Diaz, Gomez
You take a guy that's useful maybe once or twice a game (and sometimes 0 times) instead of someone that is useful 15-20 times per game, just because he plays almost every day instead of once every five days? You must not be very good at math.

1) Buxton (assuming he bats in the top 2/3rds of a MLB lineup)
2) Benintendi (assuming he takes over as the starting leftfielder in Boston)
3) Moncada [because...learning pains are for real (see Trout, Michael Nelson; and Buxton, Byron Keiron)]
The math dictates that nearly ANY 2 start pitcher is more valuable than nearly ANY 1 start pitcher.
That is why...(this is good)...USING YOUR LOGIC...ANY 5-7 TIME A WEEK HITTER IS MORE VALUABLE THAN ANY 1-2 START A WEEK PITCHER.
THEN...WHEN YOU ADD IN THE FACT THAT ANY BATTER (NO MATTER HOW POOR A HITTER) CAN POSITIVELY IMPACT 5 CATEGORIES 5-7 TIMES A WEEK...
...THAT ANY SP (NO MATTER HOW GREAT A PITCHER) CAN POSITIVELY IMPACT JUST 4 CATEGORIES 1-2 TIMES A WEEK...
...NEARLY ANY (repeat for emphasis)... NEARLY ANY HITTER IS MORE VALUABLE THAN NEARLY ANY PITCHER.
Game, set, match...Skippy.
I don't think that those closers are on the list because of saves per se. Rather, With the exception of Jansen and Britton, they are the "inheritors". This just reinforces the fact that this list is most heavily influenced by outperforming your draft (or waiver) position.
Actually, looking at that list, I think it shows that even more valuable than guys with HR and SBs are the guys with SVs.
The list is filled with guys like Oh, Diaz, Dyson, Britton, Jansen, Thornburg, Watson, Colome, Osuna, and Gomez.
Either you're using the list incorrectly, or your analysis on pitchers is incorrect. Either way, you're wrong.
Standard deviation is a first year university stats class concept as far I know. It's quite frankly hilarious that you think only Mensa members would understand that metric, and as Crass already covered you clearly do not understand it as in this case it is calculated over the entire population of MLB players, 70%+ of which are fantasy irrelevant players in your public league - and again in this new threshold you have detailed to me, someone with 2 SB would qualify as a performer in SBs. By your own definition, Nolan Arenado is a 5 category performer, yet I have seen you repeatedly argue he is worthless as he is not a 4 category bat.
