Ok then what was your point? Who are you devaluing and why again?

ha because the workhorse 200+ inn aces dont matter as much if the season is shortened. other options have increased value especially young arms or more risky guys like glasnow now that he doesnt have to last 162 game season

Nightengale's tweet probably unrealistic, though potentially worth consideration.

Suddenly you have a lot more dudes playing in cold weather during the fantasy playoffs...

you pay a top 15 pick on sp expecting 200-225 inn that extra 25-50inn is baked into those aces. if there isnt that inn gap then whats the difference between max and kershaw fantasy wise? max and kershaw both throw 175 ish inn and returned same value. (obviously kershaw got a nice boost with W but that still matters in standard 5x5)

I definitely think there is something to this. Every year people hold those top tier aces to another standard not only because of their elite ratios and K’s but also because of the volume of 200-220 innings. The Scherzer/Kershaw comp is what intrigued me. I’m definitely going to take a closer look at this.

Ok, I just realized we’re not clear on the *ending* of the season. 
 

I know we’re prob not starting the season on time. But is the season “delayed” by 2 weeks (meaning it’ll also end 2 weeks later and still comprise 162 games) or suspended for 2 weeks (meaning less total games and the same playoff dates as would’ve normally happened)?

Anything is possible. The season might be cancelled. The season might not start until June. No one knows.

Last season the World Series ended on Oct. 30. They cannot play into November. It’ll be a shortened season.

more so in roto

 

also think you have jump berrios up a little as he really is close to sp1 1st half and basically dog piss 2nd half.(3 straight years) who knows if that trend continues but have to think a shortened season makes him a bit more appealing.

 

bump up players coming back from major inj as well as they have more time to get back  closer to full strength with shoulder/labrum inj (mondesi, senzel, andujar)

Weather. Unless you’re banking on LA/HOU. But can’t bank on that. 
I can’t imagine they play neutral field or some gimmick in November for the World Series, though I guess it’s possible. Considering they play such a long season, I think 140 games is plenty. It’s not like the NFL where they only play 16 games.

yeah that makes sense thanks for clarifying. 
 

Kershaw was already on my target list. Any other examples?

 

you still need pitchers capable of putting up good ratios, it’s not like average pitchers are all of a sudden as good as great pitchers because there’s less games. I got hung up in that, my bad.

Obviously vague and unofficial, but it's interesting. 

Well then I'm hoping for a non-neutral park world series of Minnesota vs. Colorado

Snell, Paddock, Glasnow, Woodruff, Montas, Carrasco, and Gallen, just to name a few, are all guys projected to throw between 150-170ish innings who I think all get a bump due to their ability to provide good ratios. That is of course if the number of games played is shortened.

Berrios is not an ace and doubt ever will be.

Great thread.  Something else to ponder:

 

 

 

This is when you know that Razzball has little credibility. The guy running the site also advocates drafting Giolito and Castillo over the likes of Buehler and Flaherty and says other highly questionable things while constantly putting lane jokes in for some reason.

He's not. He doesn't have the stuff. He's a solid SP2 in 12-team leagues.

Gallen?! Since when did he prove that? He has a whole 80 innings of pitching in the Majors with a flukey ERA not matching his 4.21 xFIP. Montas has never pitched above 96 innings in a season and is projected for an ERA over 4 by Steamer. Paddack is more likely to crash and burn due to having only 2 pitches and terrible advanced metrics. Kershaw is not in Scherzer’a league, with his 90 MPH fastball last season and mediocre advanced metrics.

I’d say more an SP3 but I agree with your assessment.

Given that ST stopped, so has a pitchers routine. They have to build back up again to gain command/feel. April/May are pitcher friendly months too. So i think the opposite here about ace's being less valued. The total IP performance may shorten, but performance gap might be wider.

Vets still go deeper into games that put them at better odds at racking up wins and K's. Margin of victory in those cats will smaller this year.

I'm not gambling on later pitchers matching vets like Cole and DeGroom when the bulk of the season will be in warmer weather then before.

Yes, the guys who were projected on IP limits may drive interest, but guys like Kershaw could still get hurt in a shorter season.

never said hes an ace i said hes close to a sp1 during 1st half. 3 era 1.1 whip, 3.6 era 1 whip year before, 3.5 era 1.08 whip 3 years ago

those numbers are basically strasburg last year and basically his entire career minus the godly k rate of strasburg.

you get 3.5 era 1.1 whip around pick 80 thats money

still have no idea why he is so bad 2nd half

I never said they would be aces but that imo they get a bump. Those are all guys I like this year. Again it’s just my opinion and I don’t really care that you disagree.

I agree with this. If you live in the northern half of this country, you know that October is a crapshoot. Seattle, Chicago, Milwaukee, Detroit, Mpls, Pittsburgh, the Northeast...... The further you get into October, the more likely that temperatures are going to get low. At worse, regular season won't go past the first part of October. Also, I'd imagine off days/travel days in the MLB playoffs are going to be eliminated/reduced too.
