Changing seasons on players


Changing seasons on players

Wondering what’s the pros of PC take on once u draft a player example Ruth or pujols. I can change Ruth from 97 to a 100. And Albert moving to 1b so he is 100. Do y’all find they have better seasons or worse??
Thanks, I’ll shut up and listen .

Re: Changing seasons on players

Wouldn’t get hung up on rank. Go for what you are looking for whether that’s more power, better OBP, speed, defense, etc.

Re: Re: Changing seasons on players

I've actually changed Ruth to his 1.19 dWAR season before in Ruthian Leagues - gives you an amazing CF in that format. I agree with yankeebb - sometimes it's determined by your needs. I've changed Thome to 3B in some ATG leagues if he's my best option there - I even changed Torre to Catcher recently in an ATG league because he was my best option. Sometimes necessity is the mother of invention.

Re: Changing seasons on players

I love the 1.19 dWAR Ruth in Ruthian leagues!

I also often use Greenberg’s 1B seasons in ATG.

Generally I switch seasons on hitters to either get a different position or more dWAR. Occasionally you can find a better offensive season, but usually not.

With pitchers, I rarely switch- but occasionally I’ll go with a lower H/9 season with a worse WHIP

The Mother of Invention? the Sheik casually sneaks in a Frank Zappa reference.....

Re: Changing seasons on players

Everything that was said above. Rank is just a number relative to the overall talent level of the player pool. Place more emphasis on what your team needs.

Can they get on base more? Do they have more speed? Is there fielding better? Do they have higher dWAR? You do you. Rank is only a cosmetic factor in this sense

Re: Re: Changing seasons on players

I can change many players seasons on a same team...

In the one attached 3 out of my 9 starters have their stats changed...and its pretty much like that in most of my lineups...

Beltran for better power and defense
Giles, if not a DH, I can't afford is terrible -2 DWAR season
Blalock with a great 2.99 DWAR at 3B
