Which players historically have went beast mode after ASB? Also, any predictions fof new(er) players?

I think bogut and gordon. Both have ample time to rest up and start getting back to form.

Is it because baseball has way higher variance?

If you look at most post NBA all star breakout performances, they usually stem from trades, tanking, or injuries. Players already in starting positions with full minutes rarely outperform their averages. Out of the group, tanking and injuries are the likeliest reason. Waiting for a trade is like hoping to win the lottery.

This is probably the most apt response although I'm not sure tanking will present a lot of opportunity, more like suppress future production from an older and fading player. Folks should either post a rational reason for their thoughts (history, quant trends, roster movement, etc) or else this thread is just a bunch of managers doing this for their underperforming players....

Bradley Beal. This guy shows glipse of what he can do prior to his wrist injury. After the wrist injury is past him. His main deriment was his terrible Fg%, but if this month is any indication, he seems to have dramatically improved that even with a gimpy wrist.

I could easily see him going 5-9th round ROS

Yeah his was an even rarer scenario. He got his coached fired and his player utility usage went up significantly. In other words his minutes went up because Westphal was holding him back. Once again he hadn't maxed out his minutes or ability.

Depending on the team you play for april/may can still be pretty cold monthsoti play night games in. Cold weather makes pitchers better and hitters weaker until it warms up.
