OPS leagues

Postby Xtreemes » Sun Feb 25, 2007 11:32 am

I'm in a 6x6 league, regular 5 plus OPS. My question is how much should power guys move up and how much should speedsters move down my rankings? I've used those projection websites but they give different answers. Does Hafner move to the middle of the first round? How far do Reyes and Crawford move down?

If someone is in an OPS league and has rankings to share that would be great.

http://www.baseballmonster.com - you can configure rankings based on your league's stats.

Probably isn't that necessary, like you said, power guys get bumped up a bit in your league. Reyes and Crawford don't get moved down too much because their contribution to steals will override the slight negative contribution to OPS. Other top steal guys however, like Pierre\Figgins, I avoid completely.

Berkman and Hafner should move up to the mid-late 1st round. Reyes and Crawford definitely shouldn't move down, if anything they should move up. To get an .840 OPS from a player capable of stealing 60 is amazing. It's guys like Figgins/Pierre/Pods/Taveras who you should devalue a bit.

I used that site and it moved Reyes/Crawford way down for me, but that is also based on last years rankings. If you expect Crawford to develop more power this year, then that site doesn't really offer anything.

Agree with this. Ichiro is another guy that takes a big hit in the rankings, especially if he doesn't hit .330+ again.

Also, don't sleep on Adam Dunn. Since you still have average as a category, he doesn't move up THAT much, but he is an OPS monster even in an off year.

Yeah it makes an of the low average power hitters move up because they usually have a high OBP and SLG. Guys like Swisher, Thomas, and Giambi can be great sleepers in a league like this.
