I would either get the 9th or the 10th pick depending on the championship this week. I'm hoping that Miggy and/or Teixeira will be available then (which I doubt). Looking at their splits, I didn't realize just how much of an advantage Teixeira has in terms of ballpark:
Cabrera's home splits are worse than his road splits. However, not to the extent that Teixeira's road splits being worse than his home splits. I think it's pretty safe to say that Arlington is AL's version of Coors. Further proof that Miggy is just a better hitter overall.
Nah, I'd say the White Sox park is more of AL Coors than Arlington. They are both close because of their positions, and if you are talking fantasy, it really doesn't matter if Tex has the advantage in parks. Thats just a plus for him. You don't downgrade or upgrade players based on what they would do if they played in a neutral park, because it isn't going to happen...
i disagree. if teix's away splits were like .280 and his home splits .300+ (think helton), then you're right that whatever you get from his home stadium is extra. but when his away splits actually hurt you with a something more near .250, then his good splits from home just balances out the harm from his away games, instead of giving you anything "extra."
in roto it doesn't really matter, but in h2h i try to avoid players on the rangers, padres, and rockies.
i'd go with miggy.
