Anyone wanna do a MLB draft? Not for future, but consider it a one game winner take all thing.

Thinking starting 9, two bench, three pitchers, and one wild card to make it 15 rpunds. Anyone interested?

Or maybe you guys need to actually look him up. He had the highest WAR of all remaining CF, plays plus defense, hit .300 and has elite speed but keep thinking he's a nobody.

Putouts as CF: 2015 NL 341 (2nd)

Errors Committed as CF: 2015 NL 5 (2nd)

Yeah, you right. I haven't thought about him.

Caught Stealing: 2015 NL 8 (7th)

Yeah.

129 strikouts to 28 BBs... yeah I have not even thought about this dude......

Zach
01-10-2016, 03:10 PM
Mother fucker is like Manny Ramirez that if Manny never stuck out he hit over .400.

Or maybe you guys need to actually look him up. He had the highest WAR of all remaining CF, plays plus defense, hit .300 and has elite speed but keep thinking he's a nobody.

Forgive me if I don't buy the fact that his .387 BABIP is sustainable.

Grizzlegom
01-10-2016, 03:47 PM
All of those errors came within the first half of the season, where he was playing a position that he never played before while making the jump from AA to MLB with a completely new organization. Also, despite those "bad numbers" he was still rated as a top 5 defensive CF on both bbref and fangraphs this season. His second half numbers, offensively and defensively, were elite for a CF. Yes, he doesn't walk a ton, but he makes above average contact, hits to all fields, and showed more power than expected. He also has elite speed that helps him maintain a high BABIP. Yes .387 is unsustainable but his BABIP at every level has been around .350 so even if it falls down to .320ish next season, his top 5 defense still makes him a top tier CF in today's game.

Besides, I thought this was for 1 game based off the season that was just played. Based on the season that was just played, he was the next best CF on the board. Based on this react, I probably could have waited a few rounds, but yea well, I got the guy I wanted. If people hold him against me when we vote later, so be it, it's just a random internet game, right? :)

Zach
01-10-2016, 03:53 PM
We are going off the end of the year, but for me a dude who has a high batting average with a very high strikeout number? Makes me think of Manny and how sometimes he struck out in the biggest games lol.

You should have people outside the draft vote, but whatever.

I would take a two-pronged approach. I'd have everyone rank the other 8 teams in the draft, and I'd also recruit some people from outside the draft for a more impartial view, try go get around 5 people or so that you trust (D, Zak, Cain, Jugs, Kyle maybe?). Add em all up and go from there.

Nevermind I misread two bench.

The problem with WAR is that it's for one game, which kind of throws that out the window.

No arguments there, fenikz's team, in particular, has a lot of guys that didn't play full seasons due to just getting called up or injury, so his WAR looks lower than it should. I was just bored and thought it would be something cool to throw out there for people to look at.

Batting Order:

1. Dee Gordon, 2B (L)
2. Jason Heyward, RF (L)
3. Alex Rodriguez, DH (R)
4. Anthony Rizzo, 1B (L)
5. Adrian Beltre, 3B (R)
6. Yoenis Cespedes, LF (R)
7. Brandon Crawford, SS (L)
8. Travis d'Arnaud, C (R)
9. Odubel Herrera, CF (L)

Bench:

Martin Prado - Utility (R)
Jarrod Dyson - Pinch Runner (L)
Mark Teixeira - Pinch-hitter with pop (S)

SP - Clayton Kershaw (L)
RP - Darren O'Day (R)
RP - Zach Britton (L)

Picking third, I wasn't really sure where I wanted to go after the obvious big two, but I felt like there was a glut of similar hitters that could have been next and I couldn't decide which one I wanted so I took the man I think is the best pitcher in baseball at the moment in Kershaw. After going with a pitcher in the first, I focused on taking pretty much all players that are considered among the best at their position defensively but could still handle a bat. According to FanGraphs, Heyward, Gordon, Beltre, and Cespedes all graded out as the best defenders at their positions and Crawford and Herrera were both top 5. Working under the assumption that Kershaw won't need pulled early, I then went with O'Day and Britton to work the back of the pen and the bench I filled out with specific roles rather than platoons or anything like that.

As someone who considers himself more of a traditionalist, I tried to look at this exercise with a saber-mindset and I learned a lot about "advanced metrics" because of this. Thanks for organizing Zach!

Ya I went with talent over production mostly

I'm banking on a good chunk of my lineup to make the next leap, as well as a few guys that could be depended on for at least 1 hit in a game.

Basically my team is either scoring 15 runs or it's getting 2 hits.

I will later on today send out messages on how to do the scoring and all. Good job everyone.
