Editor’s Note: Below is another awesome contribution to the Fantasy Baseball Dugout library from the Fantasy Baseball Scholars, Ryan Jones and Tim Lander. Make sure you check them out on Facebook and follow them on Twitter, too. Names sometimes lie to us. Our perception of a player is often dictated by their reputation or pedigree.

The best way to compare players is without the names attached. Take a look at these players stats to see how your perception matches up with reality on a statistical analysis.

Are you two-start pitcher streaming? If not, you’re likely missing out on a great opportunity to increase your weekly strikeout total, win total, log more innings pitched, and potentially lower your team ERA and WHIP in head to head leagues that allow daily lineup changes.
