The Darkhorses: Wins

11

BP Fantasy Staff

A look at the pitchers our fantasy crew believes can outperform their PECOTA projections in wins.

One of the fun ways we all try to outsmart our opponents in fantasy is by searching for hidden value in players who, for one reason or another, we suspect have the ability to outpace their projections (and, relatedly, their draft cost). Our Darkhorses series features staff picks for players who could very well outpace their PECOTA projections for the year and provide the top overall production in one of the standard 5x5 categories. We’ve all picked one player currently projected by PECOTA to fall outside of the top 10 and one longer-shot player currently projected outside of the top 25. We’re taking a look at pitching this week, following our run on offense a week ago. To read the earlier editions in this series, click below:

Fantasy Freestyle: Sifting Through Second-Half FIPs

8

Bret Sayre

A closer look at the 12 pitchers who fared best during the summer in the statistics they could directly control.

As the playoffs are coming to an end in a fashion that seems to get crazier and crazier by the game, we continue to use this opportunity to look back on the 2013 season to see what we can learn going forward. Two of the biggest areas to explore for uncovering undervalued assets are hidden improvements over the course of the previous season and digging beyond the raw stats to the more predictive ones. In this exercise, we’re going to combine the two to see if anything interesting is uncovered when using FIP to determine more of a true performance level after the dust cleared from the All-Star festivities in New York.

There were 12 pitchers who posted a FIP of 2.75 or lower in the second half of the 2013 season. Here they are in reverse order:

The Dodgers must beat Adam Wainwright to avoid a 3-0 hole.

On Saturday, the Cardinals scratched home an unearned run on a Jon Jay sacrifice fly. It turns out that this was all the run support Michael Wacha and the Cardinals bullpen needed, as they eked out a 1-0 win over the Dodgers to take a 2-0 series lead in the National League Championship Series. Can the Dodgers win their first game and climb back into the series? Here is a look at PECOTA odds and projected starting lineups for tonight’s game.

2

Mike Gianella

The series moves to Los Angeles, where each team entrusts a starter making his post-season debut.

The Braves had their backs to the wall on Friday night, and held off a late Dodgers threat to take Game Two, 4-3, and even the best-of-five series at one game apiece. Here is a look at PECOTA odds and projected lineups for Game Three of the NLDS.

What You Need to Know: Extra Innings Everywhere

3

Daniel Rathman

Tuesday's baseball was #weird.

The Tuesday Takeaway
Anyone who’s a fan of free baseball—and hey, who isn’t?—got a week’s worth of it on Tuesday night.

As the clock neared midnight in the Eastern time zone, three games—White Sox vs. Tigers, Pirates vs. Cardinals, and Orioles vs. Diamondbacks—were knotted at three runs apiece, all either in extra innings already or on the cusp. And that’s not to mention the three 10-plus-frame contests that took place earlier in the evening, when the Red Sox edged the Blue Jays, the Reds downed the Cubs, and the Marlins outlasted the Royals in the 1-0 aftermath of a Jose Fernandez-Bruce Chen duel.

What You Need to Know: Albers at it Again

1

Daniel Rathman

Twins starter Andrew Albers throws a shutout in his second start, and Adam Eaton helps the Diamondbacks keep pace with the Dodgers.

The Monday Takeaways
Last week, in his major-league debut, Andrew Albers blanked the Royals for 8 1/3 innings. Given his story and the fact that he was setting foot on a big-league field for the first time at the age of 27, that seemed like a big deal. Six days later, Albers one-upped himself.

The left-hander was unable to complete the shutout on August 6, failing to bump Andy Van Hekken down a line on the list of pitchers who have done it in their first tastes of The Show. Instead, he did in his first start at Target Field, two-hitting the Indians and outgunning Danny Salazar in a 3-0 Twins victory on Monday night.

What You Need to Know: Chicago Firepower

1

Daniel Rathman

For one night, the White Sox look like the team to beat in the AL Central.

The Tuesday Takeaway
The White Sox entered last night’s matchup with Justin Verlander with a .237 team TAv, the second-worst mark in baseball. Only the Marlins, at .231, had been less potent at the plate as a group, and Mike Redmond’s bunch did not have the benefit of a designated hitter. Among junior-circuit clubs, the Yankees, 11 points ahead of the White Sox at .248, were the next-worst squad.

The American League’s least productive lineup, one with only two starters toting on-base percentages higher than .310, is not supposed to collect 23 hits in a game against Verlander. But on Tuesday, the White Sox did.

Fantasy Starting Pitcher Planner: Week 13

6

Paul Sporer

A look at the upcoming matchups for next week's two-start pitchers to help you set your fantasy rotation.

Welcome to the Weekly Pitching Planner. Each week I will cover the pitchers are who slated to make two starts and help you decide who you should start and who you should sit. Sometimes guys will be in the “consider” where they might have one good start, but a second tough one and then your league settings might determine whether or not you should go forward with him. The pitchers will be split by league then by categories:

Auto-Starts – These are your surefire fantasy aces. You paid a handsome sum for them either with an early draft pick or high dollar auction bid so you’re starting them anywhere, anytime. Guys can emerge onto or fall off of this list as the season evolves. There won’t be many – if any – notes associated with these groupings each week. We are starting them automatically so why do I need to expound on how awesome they are and will be in the coming week?
