How often do you guys....

Post by atuf »

DO you guys check splits for each player every day to decide who to start and what not?? I hate checking splits and then have some guy that bats .230 against left handed pitching then hit a 3-run Homerun. It is frustrating. Do you guys just ride the hot hand, bench those who are slumping, or check the splits...??? I need some help. I have a pretty solid core of OF's in Burrel, Gibbons, Giles, Hunter, Huff. I usually like to have Konerko as my Utility while SPezio holds down 1B. So what do you guys do in regards to who to start and what not...

But as far as checking splits, i really don't - especially this early in the season when the stat base is allready thin - spliting it makes it more misleading allready! PLus my leagues are weekly lineups

The title caught my attention as well. Glad to see that it's a baseball question. ;-D

As JOEG said above, it's a bit early for checking splits. If there's anything I use right now for splits it's how my pitchers have done in certain ballparks in their career. Hitters, I don't really worry about it. B-)

NEVER rely on annual splits. They are simply too small of a sample size.

I do rely on 3 year splits, if there's enough sample.

I do rely on splits. More based on pitching matchups than anything.

At the beginning of each month I will look at each team my players will be facing in the next month. ESPN has a great tool for this.

Scott Rolen vs all Arizona pitchers for example. I usually use 10 AB's against a partiular pitcher to be a decent enough sample size. I will make note of who shouldnt start against who and who hits who really well. I will make notes on this and keep those for a month.

It may sound like alot of work but it takes about an hour total.

It really sucks when you bench Trot Nixon against all lefties and then he hits a 3 run bomb BUT overall throughout the course of a season, playing the percentages will work in your favor.

What i meant to say was do you guys check splits from previous seasons and what not? Later in the season, do you guys start checking the splits more often????

i don't use splits. i check stats and try to watch said player to see what they're doing right/wrong. splits are just against one team, maybe in a h2h league or something where time is not of the essence, then that comes into play (say burnitz or someone like that is at coors and has a staff he's had success against)

otherwise, if a split determines if you're making a move, you're prolly in a pinch that you need to get out of anyways.
