So do you bench both if they are both on the road?

The thing is you can't start all of them for their Home games, a lot of the time they will fall on the same day. So you will never maximize it entirely due to that, so I'm guessing you will still have to play a guy away at least 25% of the time. Thus making sure your stats won't be that good. This also doesn't take into account that Barmes could share time at 2B because he just isn't a good hitter. What's stopping him from repeating his 2006 season? He isn't really in his prime and never has been much of a producer.

All of that isn't to say it can't help somewhat, I just wouldn't expect that much of an increase in stats due to it.

When they both have home games I Play Young at 3rd and bench Aex Gordon (sigh). Problem solved.

That said, Michael young is going to be a producer this year in the new generation of the Texas Death-row lineup,Barmes will get more HRs, SBs, better average, better OPS while Young will excel in Runs -- will depend on which category I need.

and when there both on the road do you play Gordon at SS? Oh wait this is fantasy, not scoresheet, you can't play a player out of position!

I thought you said this is weekly correct? So what's your plan for the 1st week when Colorado is home 3 games and Texas is home 3, won't one guy have half his starts on the road? Maybe I'm just off on your league set-up..
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

Those aren't projections. Those are his "at home" split stats from last season.

He had 25 SB's on the year, so that would be quite a feat.
I think you've got his home RBI listed as his home SB's.

Exactly, when both play on the road you will have bad stats. You cant just get 100% of their home stats, it's not possible.

Barmaster's away games week one are at arizona where he goes bombadeering regularly, I gave him the start over Micheal "the one" Young. my opponent is starting Jimmy Rollins so I'll have some fancy analysis to brag about end of the week.
