Hot Springs - How much should I adjust?

Postby jsphlly » Wed Mar 15, 2006 1:26 pm

I'm pretty sure the general consensus around here is not to pay ST too much mind.

However, I'm finding it hard to ignore some hot springs from a few guys, whom before ST, I had relatively low on my radar:

E. Encarnacion
R. Howard
J. Barfield
C. Granderson

Also noticed JD Drew and A Boone (2 guys I'd rather avoid) are having nice STs.

Any thoughts/comments on how much adjustment to my cheat sheet should be made for these guys?

If a guy has a hot spring you move him to the front of the group you were considering him in with. So in other words if the guy was crap before the hot spring he is still crap now, he just smells a little better. Or if the guy was a mediocore player that some people thought he had some room for improvement and is still fairly young then you would move him to the front or near the front of the group of guys he is ranked with.

So with me, Encarnacion isn't really on my radar to have. He is grouped in with a few other guys of his calibar and expectations but now after his good spring he is going to be the #1 guy out of that same group I currently have him with. I hope that made sense. :-?

J.D. Drew is a solid player - he's just often injured.

Yup. I wouldn't move anyone up a tier, but I might advance them a little within a tier. i wouldn't even necessarily say it was to the top of the tier. And, I wouldn't do that unless I felt his good ABs were coming against major league pitchers. With the WBC even more so than in the past, ST at bats include a lot of feasting on minor leaguers.

Based on where I had them before ST, I bump Edwin E. and Howard a tier. I don't think so much of Garnderson, but Barfield has good potential. ;-D
