If the guy has the best numbers, how can he not mean anything to his team's success? It's not his fault his teammates are awful.
1. If his team sucks, who cares about his numbers
2. Great players elevate the play of their teammates and make their teams relevant.
3. If you take the money to play for a crappy team, you don't deserve MVP.
4. Its a heck of a lot easier to get good numbers when your team is out of the race.
1. Every knowledgable fantasy owner, but I digress. It's not his fault his team sucks, if he's doing his part.
2. That's a myth in the game of baseball. In a fluid team game like basketball, sure, but not a game where a man steps in the batters box by himself. You'll have a heck of a time convincing me otherwise.
3. Nothing more than your opinion. I find it hard to believe you'd do anything other than take top dollar if given the opportunity, for your career.
4. Statistical evidence, please?
Sounds like a bunch of lopsided opinions being spewed here. Welcome to the Cafe, where stuff like this gets called out.
