Fantasy Baseball By the Numbers

Tulo's stats stand up; Hanley in a slide.

Today’s special post is from our good friends over at Fantasy Baseball Scholars.

At Fantasy Baseball Scholars, we put a huge emphasis on trends. Whether it’s over a couple seasons or over a couple months typically if you follow the trends you can give yourself a good idea of what to expect in the future with any particular player.

A perfect example of this is Hanley Ramirez. We have mentioned recently on our site that we’re not surprised with Hanley’s rough start and thought Tulo was the safer pick at the beginning of the season because of Hanley’s long term trends. From 2008 to 2010 Ramirez’s home runs have gone from 33-24-21 and his runs scored have gone 125-101-92. Even though it looks like those trends will continue, we never imagined Hanley would fall apart the way he has, but it’s worth mentioning that we did have Tulo over Hanley on draft day.   (Kudos to you Fantasy Baseball Scholars; we had Hanley as the top fantasy baseball shortstop.)

To help our followers with current trends we run a weekly article titled “By the Numbers” which outlines stats over the last few weeks, 30 days, or for the season thus far. Please enjoy this week’s 50 “By the Numbers” and best of luck the rest of the season to all of you. These numbers are based on stats accrued up until June 20th, 2011.
