Revisited: 2003 Fantasy MVP

Good analysis, Jonnyblack, I think most of us would put Nomar in that "elite" catagory just behind A-Rod. I doubt he will make it to the second round of many drafts.

good point, bringing up javy. he put up sick #'s for anyone, let alone a catcher. I am, however, still scared to draft him. Is he still going to be in shape and motivated after he signs another contract,? Or was last year more of an exception rather than a rule? I can just see myself drafting him too early and painfully watching him go .265 with 18 and 88. Or, if I decide not to draft him, I can see him go similar to last year.

If you consider production at the position level, i think that Javy belongs on the short list of 2003 fantasy MVP. Also, A-Rod was only .002 BA points away from qualifying in all five categories given the parameters above.

Javy carried me in my keeper league, all the way to the finals. In that keeper league, I had as much as 8 people on the DL at once :-[ . Mainly because I had Hoffman, Oswalt, Burnett, Armas Jr., I could go on...

Jorge Julio was a great later pick for me. And of course, getting Esteban off WW... B-)

Trev

I meant that A-Rod hit .298, while the minimum parameters for the top 40 players for BA was .300. So had A-Rod batted ".002" higher, he would have qualified under said parameters (along with sheffield and nomar) to be in the top 40 in all five fantasy categories.

The whole point of my A-Rod post was to remind myself that he is still a stud :-).

I think Vlad will be back to full "speed" soon, but a lot of guys steal less and less as they age. hopefully this is not the case with Vlad. Another note about steals. I'd watch out for the Kaz Matsui bandwagon. Art Howe's teams are almost always last in the league is SB's, so I don't expect Kaz to put up sick steal numbers.

Don't confuse the two injuries. Rodriguez's has slipped, which means that it is out of place and will not slip back unless he has major surgery. Guerrero's was merely herniated and that usually heals on its own which, judging by his numbers last season, that has already occured. And even if Guerrero needs surgery it is considered minor and is used to speed up the recovery process.

I am a certified quack so I feel absolutely comfortable giving my medical opinion. Really, though, I'm sure someone can confirm this or prove it to be a bunch of hooey. I did have Guerrero's condition long ago so I do feel somewhat qualified in what I said. Rodriguez's, though, I just read about last spring when the word came down about his condition, so I could be completely wrong about it.
