Fantasy Freestyle

Looking at Values, Part 1: Hitters

by Mike Gianella


In the fantasy baseball community, we have reached the time of year when we start examining player performances, because we are at or near the halfway point of the season. This designation is as arbitrary as arbitrary endpoints get. However, there is enough data to begin to at least develop a picture of how accurate or inaccurate we were prior to the regular season compared to the actual results.

This week I will take a look at the best, most expensive, biggest bargains, and biggest busts in the NL and AL-only hitter pools. Next week, I will look at the pitchers.

Entering the 2014 season, it seemed that there were few rock solid certainties among the best NL hitters, and this was reflected in the way the market priced these hitters prior to the start of the season.
