You simply cannot seperate a player from his team in fantasy and there is no reason to try to. Its part of the game.

Is ESPN's QS different then Joe's Fantasy Guide?
eviljoshing wrote:A QS is even MORE influenced by the defense behind a pitcher and the park he plays in then a win. A win has both teams compared scoring in the same park with the same park adjusted stats. Also, rain and other conditions that make defenses difficult account for both teams. A QS takes no conditions into consideration. It ignores the disadvantage of pitching in Fenway compared to Cleveland (about 10%) or Colorado to anywhere. There is no single stat that measure the quality of a start. The closest is probably strikeouts to walks ignoring hits entirely. Once the ball is in play in any way, the best you can do is pick your poison for which categories you want to affect the stat you are using. QS has just as many factors in it (defense and parks most notably) as a W (run support, so offenses of both teams and defeneses of both teams).
