    Isn't the right answer normally somewhere in the middle? Don't pick him at 3 now with the added risk of losing a good portion of his HR. But if he slides to you at 10 because everyone is afraid, pounce.
  2. OK lets do it. Last 3 years-- 654, 627, 492 PAs.

    Seems like you may be still missing the point. One month is not a large enough sample size to make sweeping conclusions from, especially when you have the full season's data available.

    The most glaring comparison point is that Clevinger still has an option left.

    Specifically his .227 AVG is dragged down by a .255 BABIP in a small sample. Looking at 2017, if you use his 40.6% hard hit % and compare to others in that hard hit % range you'll see Domingo Santana with a .363 BABIP, Zimmerman .335, Abreu .330, Cruz .315 If you presume he can pull that BABIP up to standard levels around .320 based on his contact, his AVG should rise accordingly. .260-.270 certain seems reasonable.

    Kluber had a 1.25 WHIP in April and a 2.67 in May (May was just 1 start) Sale had a 1.35 WHIP in Sept Stras had a 1.21 in July and a 1.19 in June Kershaw had a 1.22 WHIP in Sept. Looking at an individual month and determining that it is not elite is not really all that helpful.
  7. Hyperbole was the point. If a value of "greatness" doesn't apply to one of the greatest hitters ever, it's time to reevaluate and ask if it is a valid measure. If you want to look at HR, great, do your analysis there, but comparing ABs seems silly, especially since there are many leagues that use OBP.
  8. Seems a little disingenuous. Barry Bonds didn't reach 530 ABs the last 8 years of his career either. In 2001 he had one of the best fantasy seasons ever, with just 476 AB. What's relevant are the PA, especially in an OBP league.

    Easier than drafting two Mike Leakes!!
  10. The two-way player issue...

    Fantrax, thank you for the correction
  11. Gregory Polanco 2018 Outlook

    He's averaged 135 over the last 3 years and he's only 26. 110 might be on the extreme low side.
  12. Gregory Polanco 2018 Outlook

    What makes him unique in that way. Every option has a buyer's curse scenario. Why is Polanco "impossible" to draft at value?
  13. The two-way player issue...

    I noticed that fangraphs has a setting titled "Players will always accumulate stats in all scoring category groups" with a description of "If this option is checked, stats will accumulate for players in all scoring category groups, regardless of what position they're set to on their fantasy team. Therefore, pitchers will accumulate all hitting stats that your league tracks, and vice versa, although the latter is of course extremely rare."That's exactly what I was discussing being the best resolution in this thread. Good job Fantrax

    Not sure who this refers to but I never said anything about him being a good 3rd selection?? I think you are getting confused.

    You were asked for better options though "Please list what those better options are" The intent is what better options in the abstract, not at their ADP.
