It's not really a "unit theory." In any projective model you have to give credit for what has already been earned and then use the projection prorated for the remaining amount of time. (What you shouldn't do is except the player to make up the difference b/w your projection and what's already in the bank). If he was projected to earn $16 and has only earned $2 at the halfway point, you can just believe that the small sample size and expect $4 of earnings or you can trust your projections and use them the rest of the way and expect him to be worth $10 at the end of the year.

I hope your units theory holds water, as I like an $8 2nd half. Had worst keeper roster in my league: Weiters & Aybar at $10 each + Vernon Wells at $12. Aybar has recently been hot, so not so bad, but who would have figured wells would be my saviour. This rotisserie game is humbling, even after all these years. Who has a better 2nd half- Weiters or Posey?

Two owners went head to head for him in our auction, and it cost $19 to get him, which I didn't think was outrageous.

A great way to look at it is by units. We're nearly halfway through and he's still only earned 2. We expected him to earn 8 per half. He's been really bad the last five weeks, but overall it's been the BA that makes it all look so bad. I think he'll get to $10 by the end of the season.

A good way look at it is by units. We're a third of the way through the season. He was expected to earn about 5.33 per third. So he's earned 2. Give him 11 for the remaining bit (unless we were wrong), and that seems about right. The point isn't that the expectation wasn't right, but that small swings change our judgements.

Oh, I totally agree - the on-pace game is for fun, no doubt. But we also have to accept that Wieters has fallen considerably short of everyone's expectations to this point. Granted, he's been in the majors less than a year.

After being a fan for years you know that on-pace-for is a fun and totally useless game that people play.

A true mid-season projection is to take your pre-season projection pro-rate that and then add it to the current YTD total.

Does anyone think Alex Gonzalez is going to hit 40 HR? That's what he's on pace for. In reality he'll probably hit 19 because his projection was for 12.

Matt Wieters is on pace for this end-of-year roto line: .257, 40 runs, 15 homers, 51 RBIs, 0 steals. Meh. Wake me when he's Johnny Bench.

Thanks, ballfour. I'll try. I get spread a little thin at times but I'll make a point to visit and throw in my 2 cents.
