One of the biggest things I’ve noticed in this wonderful game of fantasy baseball is that nothing is ever guaranteed. Don’t get me wrong, nothing is ever guaranteed in any sport, but for some reason I just feel like in fantasy baseball, and even real-life baseball for that matter, nothing is ever, ever predictable. For the 6 years that I’ve been playing fantasy baseball, the overall league stats by the half-way point in the season just never seem to play out the way that you would think they should.
For example, in my 16-team league, I’m currently matched up against the 15th place team and here I am losing to him going into Friday ball. Yet looking at the overall team stats for the season, I’ve got him beat in almost every category by large margins. I am the 2nd ranked team in that league, so theoretically, I should be crushing this guy, but I am not. They say that the stats never lie, well in baseball they do! (more…)
