I see what you guys are saying, but reality is, that players get go thru phases and change, for example your D. Lee he has never been as great since last year, and with Clemens time has caught up with him, perfect example Bonds, I live in Bay area and see this guy play a lot and he isn't the great hitter he used to be. Fantasy Baseball is all about predicting top prospects, I drafted swisher when he was ranked 178 in yahoo rankings. Taking a chance he might be good,
And what about Ryan Howard he has more value than some of the top ten picks. I would rather take howard over crawford, why because it's baseball ethics. Thinking to myself howard is in a better lineup and has shown glimpses of all star caliber player.
Bottomline it's not about how the player produced, because things like contract year's and one year wonder's and ball parks play a role, If beltre is reading this, then you know what i am talking about. And if you are B. Giles reading this you are probably cursing Petco Park. But luck plays a role too. But it is mostly your baseball knowledge that will be the reason you are winning,knowing what trades or pickups are beneficial, thanks for leaving comments.
