Glass is half full or half empty...Fantasy Advice

Postby Cubies » Thu May 27, 2004 2:10 pm

I thought I was start another thread on this because it is good advice.

Why do must guys constantly look at the glass as being half empty. If a guy is in a slump they curse him and dump him. If a guy is absolutely ripping then they want to get rid of him quick (drop him or trade him) before he comes back down to earth and looses some value. Play the guys who are strokin and enjoy the stats they put up for you in the process and dont overact cause someone is in a slump. It happens to everyone. People get hot and cold-it is a long year. That is baseball!

Agreed - I have Vidro and Lee (Cubs) and have played them from day one. Both have been rather disappointing to this point but both will remain in my lineup. Vidro is a career .300 hitter and will no doubt rebound. Lee is a notoriously slow starter. I expect big numbers from both of these guys and will relish in their production as the year progresses. Paticence gentlemen . . .it's the name of the game with stud hitters in fantasy baseball. ;-D

I think it's because fantasy owners like to make deals, like to be constantly upgrading, moving. Maybe it's more fun that way. Debatable. There is of course a certain pleasure to waiting a slump out, having faith, and then feeling justified in the end. On the other hand, we are players of a game called fantasy baseball, and trades and transactions are where the game's action is.

yea, most of the fun isnt in sitting and watching the guys that you draft play all year...it's in finding that sleeper and having them contribute, or making that risky trade that pays off...

your vidro example doesn't work IMO since he longer has vlad protecting him in the lineup...things like that make a huge difference.
