2014-10-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jeff, obviously the teams that perform the best during the regular season don't always win the WS. It's also obvious that whatever team wins the WS had some sort of luck involved. What variables would you contribute to the "luck" factor that can come into effect with such SSS?
(JSappington from IL)
In the post-season, it's just about execution. Does a guy make the pitch or not? Does he hit the pitcher's mistake or not? It's that simple in October because the talent levels are so even and the sample sizes are so small. This is why we put managerial decisions under such a microscope in October. In general, managerial decisions get overblown during the regular season, but when one pitch can make the difference between going home or advancing, the guy throwing that pitch makes a big difference. This is why it made no sense that Matt Williams was comfortable having his entire season come down to Aaron Barrett when Tyler Clippard was available. This is why letting Hunter Strickland continue to face lefties who can hit fastballs makes no sense. This is why giving up an out in the second inning with you two hitter is a bad idea. No one has any idea how a decision will turn out, but the manager has to put his team in the best position for the dice to come up in his favor. Luck matters, but you have to make sure that the odds are on your side as well. (Jeff Moore)
2014-09-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)What late season call ups might go from unknown to on the map this post season (like K-Rod in 2002)?
(mdotmorris22 from Minnesota)
This is a good one with which to kick off.

There are a handful of relievers who I think could jump onto the radar in the same way. If the NL wild-card game is tight, both Hunter Strickland (SFG) and John Holdzkom (PIT) could play a big role, with the fact that the Pirates designated Strickland for assignment to make room for Jonathan Sanchez providing a humorous twist. Holdzkom is certainly the one who's jumped out of nowhere, from Indy ball earlier this year to a high-leverage role in a playoff bullpen. (Daniel Rathman)
2014-09-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)I'm in a 20 team dynasty league. We're allowed to protect 20 players from our 25 man roster yearly. I can protect only two of the following relievers, Brad Ziegler, Shae Simmons, Kevin Quackenbush, John Holdzkom, Hunter Strickland, Jeremy Affeldt, and RJ Alvarez. Which should I keep for next year?
(John from MD)
Again, I'd recommend shooting this one at our fantasy guys in their next chats, but I'd go with Quackenbush and Strickland. (Daniel Rathman)
