He's always had the power and he seems to really like in in Minnesota. I don't know if we can bet on a repeat though but he should be good for the bombs and RBI again. He K's too much though I think to hit for a decent BA.

I have always liked the guy, but a 30+ year old coming off a career year is almost certainly going to be overvalued come draft season.

30/100 is reasonable, but he doesn't steal bases and he's a batting average liability: .261 career hitter (.260 last year). then throw in that he plays in a pitchers park and on a horrific offense, and that he's injury prone, and it's just too unlikely to me that he returns anywhere near the value for where you'll have to draft him.
I will never draft Francisco Liriano ever again.

Pitchers park aspect is overrated. Target field plays awful for lefties which and gets a lot of bad credibility because two former MVPs (mauer and morneau)BOTH LEFTIES have had severe power outages since the switch to target.

Tyler Plouffe and Josh Willingham on the other hand raked. The park plays fairly average if not slightly above for right handed power hitters.

I was thinking about making a thread specifically for over/undervalued parks based on R o L handed hitting.

fair point. there is a site I really like but I can't remember the name... I think it is similar to 'baseball corner' and it has detailed splits and their logo is pi I think? do you know the site I'm referring to? I can't find it.

the other points still stand though.


edit: statcorner! http://statcorner.co...m=142&year=2012

you are right, that according to this it is slightly above average for righties.

all you really need to know is that 100 is average. so HR vs. RHB, Target Field (and there is ALWAYS a margin of error with these stats because of weather, SSS, etc. and esp with a 3 year old park), it has a 103. Willingham should hit ~3% more HRs at Target Field than he would at a completely neutral park for righties. and a team full of righties would score 3% more runs than at a neutral park (runs factor is also 103).

Great site btw def going to figure this out and exploit these. Maybe I'll even do a report and post it here.

I think they use some sort of weighted average. it might not go past 3 years anyway. I think each source uses their own slightly different method. if you look at different park factors on different sites, you'll noticed they vary.

there are a lot of problems with park factors but the main three I know of: (1) it's a moving target. sometimes teams move the walls, add some seats in foul territory, etc. and the weather (temperature, humidity, wind) is constantly changing as well. (2) it's nearly impossible to isolate out the exact effect of this park and compare it to the average park. at best, it is an approximation. (3) the sample sizes are relatively smaller, once you start slicing and dicing it up to make splits, you are making smaller samples and are subject to an even greater margin of error.

I agree with a lot of what you said until splits, especially for fantasy purposes. Too often parks get labeled hitter or pitchers parks, but in truth parks play pretty different depending on where in the park you hit. Breaking it down by splits is way more efficient of using park factors to establish fantasy value than not. It's not that you draft a player because of it, but you find avoids and sleeper targets better. Morneau is someone I would probably never draft again just based on this. Those homestands just destroy you. While Willingham isn't someone I would reach for, but if I needed power and he was available I would not shy away from him even in the slightest because he plays at Target.

Looking at this further team like Cleveland has a 74 for R and 121 for L. Kinda makes me want to shy away from Santana as a top 5 catcher and Reynolds altogether.

I think Bautisa's 10 HR's in 10 games has skewed this number slightly.

Didn't expect such quality analysis for a Willingham thread. The Statcorner website is legit. His home/away splits last year are night and day, the park is definitely helping him.

He is sliding too far in Yahoo! drafts (ADP 126 via FantasyPros). Needless to say I was more than happy to scoop him in the 16th round (156th overall) in a H2H draft yesterday.

Folks might look at his K rates and lower average and pick somebody else like Victorino or Nelson Cruz, but you look closer and see that he just takes a lot of pitches (4.21 P/PA). This translates into his often unnoticed ability to draw walks (76 last year with .366 OBP). Combine that with his power (.524 SLG w/ .264 ISO last year) and you realize he makes up for the .260 average, and then some.

Should we expect a repeat of last year? No. He'll regress a little perhaps, but not much. I think it's very reasonable to expect 30 HR, 100 RBI, 80 R if he stays healthy, while hovering around his career .260/.360/.480. For H2H leagues, I'd take him somewhere around the 10th or 11th rounds and a round or two earlier for roto.

10 Team H2H categories, Keep any 5 (indicated with [K] )

I think he presents great value where he is being drafted especially in OBP leagues.

The 30hr+ power should certainly be there and you have to love the walk rate 12% last year. He is also very good about not swinging at junk; his o-swing% is consistently in the low 20% range and even dipped into the high teens when he played for the nationals.

Fri, May 3
Josh Willingham is out of the Twins' lineup Friday against the Indians.
Advice: The Twins didn't play Thursday, but manager Ron Gardenhire wants to give Willingham another day of rest. Ryan Doumit will serve as the DH on Friday while Oswaldo Arcia will play left field.
