re: I'd choose the field ... so ... you don't think the distribution is like this ...

Yelich @ 18% chance of best season in 2020

Betts @ 16%

Acuna @ 15%

Turner @ 15%

Trout @ 15%

Bellinger @ 13%

Field @ 8%

... rather you think it's more like this ...

Yelich @ 15% chance of best season in 2020

Betts @ 13%

Acuna @ 12%

Turner @ 12%

Trout @ 12%

Bellinger @ 10%

Field @ 16%

... hmmm ... OK ... but in our game, you don't get to choose the field ... you will have "the most expensive player on your team".

The top six projections in the Forecaster in R$:

Yelich $43

Betts $40

Acuna $39

Turner $39

Trout $39

Bellinger $35

Ron Shandler, looking at the Baseball Forecaster's projections this year as he ponders who the first first pick should be in one of his mixed-league snake drafts:


Yelich and Trout are ranked No. 1 and No. 5, respectively,
separated by $4, but what are we really talking about here? Trout
bests Yelich by nine runs, but the advantage is
flipped in the other
categories. HRs and RBIs are a wash. We’ve already determined
that Yelich’s knee makes SB too close to call.
That leaves 20 points
of batting average. If Yelich gets one less hit per month and Trout
gets one more hit per month—
“...one extra flare, just one, a gork,
a ground ball—a ground ball with eyes!—you get a dying quail, just
one more dying quail...”
—then Trout wins that category.


Basically, $4 is way too close to call. Any of those six players
above could
finish first (and if I had to choose one, I’d still choose
the
field).

I paid $45 for him in a NL Only and I'll likely keep him at that price.

As opposed to saying "As no one expected" ... perhaps you should say "As none of the Pick&Pan'ers expected" ... because I spent top dollar on him in my home league ... and so the guy I outbid obviously expected this, too!   And he went for top dollar in PCL ... so there's (at least) 2 more fellows who expected this ... just sayin'!

So ... will I keep him next year?  Maybe :-)

In the final, official 2019 hitting formulas, Yelich gets a little bit of a haircut -- $3 in 4x4, $4 in 5x5 -- but he's still easily the best hitter in the majors in both formats.

As no one expected.

In last year's Guide, he gets five pans and no picks.

My favorite:

PODHORZER PAN: At the risk of looking silly,
like REAL SILLY, there’s just no way Yelich
could come anywhere close to a repeat, right?
RIGHT?! The BABIP has always been high, but
this was a career best over a full season. And,
he more than doubled his HR/FB rate and actu-
ally led all of baseball in the metric by a wide
margin. With a tiny fly ball rate, there’s just no
further upside from here, just downside back to
his good-but-not-elite results of 2016 and 2017.

Well, at least he outearned the hell out of his projections before going Tonya Harding on himself.

I guess somebody wanted to be in the 30-30 club :-)

Or, better yet, the 40-30 club!

Here's a fun fact ... Incredibly, they [the Brewers] are 5-5 in their last 10 games, 10-10 in their last 20 games, 15-15 in their last 30 games, 20-20 in their last 40 games, 25-25 in their last 50 games and, thanks to Friday’s win, 30-30 in their last 60 games.
