I know you know your stuff Trev, but He would not be the same player. He is good don't get me wrong but I take Giambi over him everytime.

Actually,

I owe you an apology. I looked up the stats and Giambi has less of a variation than Helton does. They are both excellent 1st tier 1b. If you get either one then you are lucky!

Close third ...

Postby ScurvyDog » Tue Feb 04, 2003 9:26 pm

Thome is a close third, but I'd go Helton, Giambi.

WHAT! 8-o Trev was wrong? Can't be! My world suddenly dosen't make sense anymore. :,-(

trev - these stats too recent? :-)

I'd have to say Giambi, Helton.

It's my perception that fantasy players generally have a pro NL bias. That means some good picks in the AL. Am I just exhibiting my own AL bias or has anyone else seen that?

Actually, tallmike, I've noticed the opposite. It could just be my NL bias though. ;-)
From the official rulebook of baseball: "Baseball is a game played between two teams of nine players each." Therefore, baseball is a game played only in the National League.
