Is this advice as bad as I think it is?

Postby Bricklayer » Tue Apr 12, 2005 8:30 pm

It has to be... It's from one of those Yahoo! baseball gurus...

TRADING POST
Shingo Takatsu, CWS
Why he's being dealt: Ozzie Guillen has been non-committal about his role with Damaso Marte and Dustin Hermanson waiting in the wings, and those three home runs allowed vs. Cleveland were bombs.
What you're getting: Straight up, trades for Takatsu return starting pitchers such as Bronson Arroyo and Odalis Perez. Package deals involving Takatsu usually combine his services with that of a shortstop or catcher in exchange for a top hitter such as Andruw Jones or Albert Pujols.

I love how Andruw Jones and Albert Pujols are on the same tier.

Good find bricklayer, gave me a good chuckle. If this "expert" places Andruw on the same tier as Pujols, I wish he was in my league.

no offense, but these guys aren't pulling these analyses out of their rear ends... they're going off of real trades data. (or at least I really hope they are). So there must be quite a few Tejada and Takatsu for Pujols trades kicking around on Yahoo.

Or Takatsu and Javy for Jones.

I'm not defending these guys- most of them are idiots- but they're probably not just making this up if they're saying things like "deals for Takatsu usually involve..." when they've got all sorts of data at their fingertips.

Ah yes, I just found this on Yahoo too and started laughing my butt off.

First of all I want to know how Albert Pujols and Andruw Jones are mentioned together as "top" players. I mean Pujols is obvious but Jones is waaaaay behind.

Second is how is takatsu and a catcher going to get you Pujols? There isnt a catcher that would make it remotely even.

Third is how is takatsu and a shortstop going to get you Pujols? Even if it was Tejada its still a very bad trade for the guy trading Pujols.

And how do guys like this get to become "Fantasy Experts?"

that's a great one and they have since deleted that post. Here's another one:

P. Lo Duca (Fla - C,OF)
Latest News
Apr 13 News: Marlins catcher Paul Lo Duca went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, and two runs in an 8-2 win over the Phillies. It was his second home run of the season.
Views: Lo Duca's strong start to the season has solidified his spot as one of the top NL catchers in fantasy baseball.


Guess they haven't played long enough to have a second half Lo Duca on thier team.
