Do streaky players have less value in H2H?

Postby NZF » Tue May 30, 2006 5:52 am

Thought I would post these numbers for the following players who believe it or not are all on one of my teams.

V-Mart April .398 May .167 8-o

Wells April .396 May .240

Wilkerson April .225 May .307

Loretta April .218 May .413 ;-D

D.Roberts April .231 May .326

Dunn April .265 May .198



Zambrano April ERA 5.35 Whip 1.72 BAA .256
May ERA 1.72 Whip 1.04 BAA .152

Thomson April ERA 1.32 Whip 1.17 BAA .211
May ERA 5.93 Whip 1.78 BAA .331

Rogers April ERA 2.59 Whip 0.98 BAA .203
May ERA 5.53 Whip 1.66 BAA .330

Thank God it's a roto league :-°

With the exception of Loretta who is usually very consistent, I think these often streaky players do not have the same value in H2H leagues as they do in roto.

Which other streaky players should lose value in H2H leagues?

Almost every player in baseball is 'streaky', its the nature of the game.

This is one reason why I play points leagues.

Season productivity is what counts rather then streakiness
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Outside of Matt Holliday, every single one of my hitters has seen a decline in production in every single category in my 14 teamer this month :-o

I don't believe in changing a guy's value based on the league format (as far as roto vs. H2H is concerned). Just this thread's author showed in his "example," most teams will have some guys who are hot and some who are cold. Over the course of a week and a season, these things will balance themselves out regardless of league format, and the best teams will still rise to the top.

Yeah, pick the one player who obviously tears up each and every game. :*) :*)

Good thing Yahoo now tells you what your overall stats are if you're in a head-to-head league. It lets me know that I would be 2nd in roto out of 6 teams, yet I currently sit in 5th place in head-to-head. Meanwhile the last place team is in 4th place and the 4th place team is in 2nd.

Yah, but the distribution is important. It's all well and good to say that, over the course of 10 weeks, two players each score 100 points and so are the same. But if you then say you're scoring weekly and one of them scored 73 points in one week and 3 points in each week thereafter and the other guy scored 10 points every single week, the second guy wins 9 weeks to 1.

So yes, I would avoid streaky hitters in a H2H format. All else being equal, of course.
