Gwynn in ATGs


Gwynn in ATGs

For what it's worth, I have Gwynn in 2 ATGs leagues, and after changing his stats to 1994, his rating jumps to 93, and his offense is dramatically better. The downside is his speed is gone.

Re: Gwynn in ATGs

Interesting. I've wondered if there are some fun hidden gems/Easter eggs like that within "other seasons." In an 80s league '89 Bryan Harvey was a free agent (Rk41). After some research, I suspected his '88 season would be better -- sure enough, he jumped to a Rk65 and has been solid in my bullpen ever since. Would be cool to see what other discoveries are out there.

Good catch. There are a lot of these in this game. Depending on your strategy for that particular team, you can change the player to fit better and help a lot with your Home Field Advantage.

Re: Re: Gwynn in ATGs

Sometimes rank is not so important to pitchers though, there are three statistics that comprise H/9 - Whip - and K/9

So if say a pitcher had a 1.40 Whip ( just a number) and you changed his season to one where he had a 1.38 Whip, he could improve in Rank

BUT his H/9 could go up and his K/9 go down, so because one of the 3 characteristics is weighted more heavily than the other 2 (and I don't know which) his RANK could improve - but be could be less effective as well.

I just looked at Harvey he went from a

1.40 Whip allowing 5.4 H/9 and 12.8 K/9

to 1.09 Whip and 7.0 H/P and 7.4 K/9

personally with him being an RP who probably only pitch's 1 or 1.5 innings I'd prefer the 5.4 H/9 and 12.8 K/9

but if he's working for you good luck

Re: Gwynn in ATGs

On the negative side, -1.52 dWAR along with the speed reduction........which is why '87 is still the best overall option if you plan on playing him in the field.

I moved him to DH , and put Oneill in OF. Well worth it. He's batting. 388!! And that's in ATG league
