What happened to my pre-season rankings?

Postby urbanbreez » Wed Jul 28, 2010 1:04 am

In this thread, we discuss why we know so little about fantasy baseball. For scientific purposes and because I admire simplicity, lets examine the enigmatic professional C. Specifically, how is it that Buster Posey is performing better than Joe Mauer? Before some of you go ape nuts, let me say "arguably", I know the numbers are comparable - that's my point.

If Buster Posey was near your top C at season start, either your name is GiantsFan, or you drafted with the specific intent of naming your team "Bust Ur Nosey". Which are both good reasons but rare occasions. *In b4keeperleague.

And what is Matt Wieters' problem? If you're like me, you felt the spirit of James Dean when you reached to draft him. Now the cunning rebel ghost feels like the other guy. The one who lost the chicken race at Deadman's Bluff after class. By lost, I mean you plunged off the cliff, burned, and James Dean is about to make face sex with your girlfriend immediately following the funeral procession. It won't be pretty.

Thoughts?

lol. Nice post. Great thread idea as well.

Mauer and Posey are similar players. 2009 was Mauer's absolute ceiling. Regression should have been expected and those that didn't anticipate it are paying the price right now. Although he is under performing from what could have reasonably been predicted of him this season. This is likely the result of minor injuries and being overworked in general. If he wasn't asked to play so many games behind the plate and got some more time at DH I think you'd be seeing a slight bump in his offensive stats across the board. Posey on the other hand is just on an absolute tear right now. You should be expecting some regression from him in the near future. He's great but he can't keep this up.

Not sure about Weiters.
