Fantasy Beat: Winter Meetings Wrapup

0

Marc Normandin

This year's Winter Meetings saw some significant players changing teams. What's this mean for your fantasy team?

With the one blockbuster deal between the Marlins and Tigers and a slew of smaller signings and trades, there is plenty for the fantasy owner to consider from this year's Winter Meetings, whether they are in a keeper league or just trying to get a head start on their draft or auction.

Future Shock: State of the Systems: NL East

Kevin Goldstein

Despite the NL East looking like a veteran division, Kevin's got plenty to talk about, as the Marlins come close to fielding an all-rookie lineup in 2006.

This is part five of a six-part series in which I'll look at the State Of The System for all 30 major league teams. I'll talk about what's working, what's not, and identify a few names to look out for (or beware of) in 2006.

Impact Rookies

0

Jeff Bower

The end of March is a time of great anticipation in the baseball world. Fans are nearly as anxious as the players to see the teams head north and start getting some hard answers to the questions that surround their favorite ball clubs. Since veterans have generally established expected levels of performance, much of the buzz and uncertainty surrounds rookies who have survived the spring sifting.

For franchises like Arizona (John Patterson and Lyle Overbay), Philadelphia (Marlon Byrd) and the Yankees (Hideki Matsui), the ability of their prized rookies to make the jump to the majors may be the difference in winning the division. In Cleveland (Travis Hafner and Brandon Phillips) and on Chicago's North Side (Hee Choi), youngsters are centerpieces as the teams try to return to competitiveness. Meanwhile, Kansas City (Angel Berroa) and Tampa Bay (Rocco Baldelli) are banking on new faces to provide some optimism for the future. Regardless of the team's near-term goals, their chances of achieving them will be buoyed if their first-year players make a big splash. While impatiently waiting for the words "Play Ball" to be yelled out Sunday evening in Anaheim, I decided to determine what rookies have turned in the greatest "impact" seasons in history.

A player's season needs to be evaluated in the context in which it occurred to determine its impact, since identical statistical lines from two different environments (e.g. 1968 National League versus 2000 American League) can have vastly divergent values. To accurately measure the impact of a rookie's performance, it must be compared only to other players in the same league within the same year. And since analysts have made great strides in quantifying defense the past few years, positional value and a player's defensive performance should also be included in the evaluation.
