Overthinking It: The April Anomalies That Matter

11

Ben Lindbergh

Some of this year's great starts are tied to dramatically changed approaches.

Looking at leaderboards in April is a lot like looking at a familiar face reflected in a funhouse mirror: some features are clearly recognizable, but others are badly distorted. Matt Kemp leads the league in almost everything, which makes sense. Look a little harder, though, and oddities start to appear. Jack Hannahan, a career .235 hitter, is batting .308. If Jack Hannahan is still batting .308 at the All-Star break, we’ll have to start paying attention (and possibly packing away survival supplies). Until then, it’s safe to dismiss Hannahan’s hot streak as a small-sample fluke.*

*Very, very safe. When I first wrote that sentence, Hannahan was hitting .364.

Resident Fantasy Genius: Keep Calm and Carry On

4

Derek Carty

Don't panic if one bad start has ruined your value pick's ERA.

Last Thursday, I decided to have a little fun with small sample sizes, checking out the success (or lack thereof) of my value picks from my preseason Fantasy Tier Rankings.  While I looked at the hitters on Thursday, today we’ll move on and inspect the starting pitchers.

As I did last time, I’m going to ignore the Four- and Five-Star Value Picks because, well, most of them weren’t really values.  Everyone knows that Clayton Kershaw is a good player, so I’m not going to bother going over him.  Instead, I’ll focus on the one-, two-, and three-star guys that you likely acquired on the cheap.  These are going to be the money-makers of a fantasy team, the guys that you’re hoping to make big profits on.
