Things to watch while you wait for Jamie Moyer’s “fastball” to cross home plate in tonight’s game.
Get all of the projections for the players on your fantasy squad from a projection system (THT’s projections, CHONE, Marcel—your choice) in a spreadsheet, calculate the projected totals for your team in each stat category, and then compare your team’s results to the other team’s results in your league.
Um, Paul? That would entail about 400% of the work that went into me drafting these bozos to begin with. Can’t I just stand pat with “I’m happy with my draft” until the wheels fall off, followed by four months of complaining about guys on my team as I watch Sportscenter? Such a strategy has always worked in the past.
And speaking of Moyer, he gave up three runs over six innings to get the no-decision in an 18-inning game against the Astros two days before Jordan Schafer was born. Maybe they’ll discuss that prior to facing each other today.
