Question About too many players from one team.

Postby RJCarrot » Thu May 05, 2005 11:33 pm

I currently have

Rollins
Utley
Abreu
Burrell

And im in a Roto league.

Is there anything that might be problematic about having 4 players from the same team in batting order other than just having a night that the team chokes?

However RBI's = Runs as well then so its like a 2fer.

I had most of the Cards last year (minus Pujols, unfortunately), and it didn't seem to be particularly beneficial, nor did it seem to hurt. It was just easier to check the St Louis box score. And, if you saw a HUGE game from the Cards, you knew one of your guys had a big night.

I'm a phillies guy myself and I don't think I would want that many players from that lineup. They are disfunctional, strike out too much, and are very streaky. I would keep Rollins and Utley. Trade abreu and Burrell.

In fantasy baseball it virtually never matters. Ive got posada, matsui, jeter, and sheffield in one league. It happens, today for instance sheffield had a great day, most other yankees didnt. Fantasy sports are such an individual game youre normally ok. THE ONLY time this really isnt true is in roto H2H leagues with weekly matchups, sometimes it'll hurt your R cat if the team as a whole doesnt perform all week long. This isnt really common though and on the good teams that produce isnt a concern.

Basically just plug in the best players you can and dont worry if you have too many players on the same team. (batters)

It really dosen't matter, except if you drafted them because they play for your favorite team. If thats the case, your likely to have reached for one of, or all of them in your draft.

It's fine in roto, because at the end, your numbers will be the same over a full season. It hurts more in H2H, where if an entire team is cold or hot, you'll have horrible weeks at times, then awesome weeks.

In my NL Only I have

Biggio
Bagwell
Lane
and Taveras ..

and when those geriatrics put up bagels on the day it hurts. :-o

Once the season is done though, I expect them to be pretty close to their projections so it shouldn't matter in the big picture.

because Abreu would have more trade value.He's not going to hit as well as someone you could trade him for. Not this year. I don't think Utley would have any trade value right now, but has been playing a lot more lately and Is hitting very well. Trust me, Utley is special.
