Re: CarGo v Votto

CarGo has like no plate discipline whatsoever. Going forward I'd trust Votto to repeat his success a lot more than CarGo unless he learns to take a few pitches. Fair enough. But they seem to strike out at the same rate, it's just CarGo doesn't draw as many walks. It's also worth noting that this is...

Re: CarGo v Votto

Votto and it's not really close.
ORLY?

Votto - .326/31/90/90/11
CarGo - .320/26/84/81/20

Seems pretty close to me at the moment, and there's no reason to think they won't post similar numbers moving forward.

Re: Strasburg needs TJ surgery

So I don't own Strasbourgh or really have any vested interest, but I am wondering where his value is at the moment. I am in a league where you need to draft a guy to keep him (you have to give up the draft pick one round ahead of where you drafted the kept), and the guy who has Strasbourgh drafted ...

Re: CarGo over Pujols? ESPN really is full of morons.

...getting older doesn't necessarily evaporate speed... Juan Pierre already has 49 steals this year as a 33 year old, Rickey Henderson stole 31 in less than 100 games as a 41 year old (and 66 as a 39 year old...), Otis Nixon stole 50+ at age 36, 37, etc. I see no reason why he can't still be steali...

CarGo over Pujols? ESPN really is full of morons.

I just read an article on ESPN by Steve Berthiaume in which he states he would take CarGo over Pujols in a "'If you could start a team tomorrow for the next 10 years' argument". Are you kidding me? I know CarGo's upside, what he's doing this year (I own him in two leagues) and love the kid, but you ...

Re: Fantasy Football is overrated

I agree that it's more luck than skill. I had three teams last year, I was in 1st place in all three leagues going into the playoffs with no major injuries or any issues with any players, one of these teams was 14-1-0 and 5 games up on 2nd place. I lost all three first round (or my first round, give...

Re: Pods' post Manny return value?

It's on the Dodgers official site: http://tinyurl.com/263a7uc I'm hoping Manny goes back to the DL soon That's not too much of a reach, he just can't stay healthy. And blech, he's 1-6 with 5Ks in his rehab assignment? Looking good there, Manny! This whole situation is as craptastic as a closer by c...

Re: Pods' post Manny return value?

Knowing Torre, the entire Dodgers outfield will become a 4 man shuffle with everyone but Ethier sitting. I kind of hope that's the case, but was wondering whether... Yahoo is saying Kemp is gonna lose time to Pods. Outstanding. ...Kemp would be the odd man out more often than not because he's sort ...

Pods' post Manny return value?

Pods has been swinging a great bat this year, and he's continued that for the Dodgers. So how much time (and value) does he lose with Manny nearly healthy? Manny's health could only last a short time (I'm looking at you Pedroia, damnit!), but if it doesn't? Is Pods just mostly relegated to a handful...

Re: Grandy Droppable?

Grandy has been my drop, pick up, drop, pick up, drop, pick up player this year. I drafted him in three leagues, and held on until the break, then began the vicious cycle. Currently I own him in 2/3 leagues I originally drafted him, and he's free on the wire in the 3rd. I just can't help myself, dam...
