Fantasy Beat: Adrian Gonzalez

6

Marc Normandin

If only we could see what the Padres' slugger could do during a season as something other than a Padre.

You don't hear much said about how good of a hitter Adrian Gonzalez actually is. The main problem is his home park, Petco. Even though Gonzalez consistently performs better there than his teammates, the end product still drags down his overall line. That's why he has hit "just" .288/.357/.504 from 2006-2008 in spite of a very impressive .306/.367/.560 road line. The split is even more extreme this year, in Gonzalez' age-27 season: hitting .254/.428/.492 is great for someone stuck in Petco (the league is hitting a very ugly .222/.308/.351 there), but his performance on the road towers above that, as he's hitting .288/.401/.674.

Fantasy Beat: To the Warning Track

19

Marc Normandin

A player whose power is tamped down by the faraway walls of Petco.

Last week we took a look at how the wind and his home park affected Kevin Youkilis' home-run production in 2008. Youkilis is an example of a player who is being overrated due to some homers receiving a boost from those factors, but it can work both ways; there are also players who are underrated due to these same effects holding their power numbers down, and this time out we'll take a look at one of them.
