Improved quality in yahoo updates

Postby nuggets » Fri Apr 29, 2005 1:28 am

Minus the fanball crap, the updates from yahoo carry much more weight than they did last year. Anyone else notice? eg.


"Apr 28 Abreu is winding up a speedy but punchless first month of the season, as he is 7-for-7 in steals but has only one home run.

Recommendation: Over the last three-plus years, April has been the month in which Abreu posted his lowest slugging percentage (.456). In 2005, he has struggled against the Braves and Nationals pitching staffs, against whom he is just 7-for-41 (.171). Abreu's other numbers are right where they should be, so he'll break out sooner or later."

Hey nugs, I've noticed the same thing. Last year it would have been like "Bobby Abreu is a first round pick, so he'll snap out of it" without any sort of numbers or logic to back it up.

Yea I think the Abreu analysis, while obvious to the experienced fantasy player, is a good teaching tool for others.

I disagree. I consider myself an experienced fantasy player, but it's not like I know the splits on every player in the league. Sure, if I had Abreu on my team I would probably know, or would think to look. But it's nice to have that pertinent info just a sticky-note click away.

;-D ;-D (even if it is just rehashed from other sites, not Yahoo's own commentary)

Agreed. I've been playing for years now, but don't know the splits on anyone outside of my own team. So information like this is quite helpful, or at least good to read.

To win most of the time it is VERY important to know what everyone is doing, not just your team. If you know what is going on you can make the most advantagous trades and waiver wire pick ups. Spend 1/2 hour a day and you will be on top of everything

Uh, guys, what I meant was that just because Abreu isn't doing well now doesn't mean he won't be a force later. I hope anyone with experience understands that about players like Abreu. ;-)
