Looking for a source for....

Postby GREEDY » Mon Mar 29, 2010 3:53 pm

I am not sure how to convey what I am looking for without sounding like an idiot, but here goes anyway:

I play in a H2H league and almost on a daily basis while discussing life/fantasybaseball/religion/politics etc, myself and or other managers refer to a player or players as "streaky", and therefore we perceive them to be not as valuable in our H2H league.

Generally, it seems that we have a tendancy to label a player with the "streaky" stamp if he/she: has a high strikeout total, or has dramatically different home/away splits.

And while these two statistical categories might be great indicators for uneven performance, I am curious if there is a dedicated site/stat that somehow measures a players consistency and makes it somehow comparable to other players?

Gracious.

There's a FLAKE stat for pitchers, but it's more unevenness than streakiness. Studies have been done on how to measure streakiness and if it even exists. Nothing conclusive. Some people says it's just like a coin flip. Sometimes you get 7 in a row of heads, but that doesn't mean the 8th with be another heads.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Thanks for the quick reply Grey.

I guess your opinion is that player's that have the inconistent rap (Uggla, Reynolds) and players with extreme park factors (AGon, Konerko) have no less value or are only slightly less valuable in weekly h2h leagues?

Inconsistent would worry me more than a poor home park for A-Gon. Good home parks could factor in.
