The AL hit .249 this year, the NL .247. But take the pitchers' hitting stats out of the mix and the NL average hitter had a higher batting average. The average fantasy hitter's batting average, in both leagues, was slightly higher still.

The baseline I ended up using in the 2018 formulas was .254 in the AL, .256 in the NL.

A lot of masochist chatter that simply says: Mitch Garver was a positive in batting average, especially for a catcher.

My baseline for AL-only in 2013 for batting average was .261. In 2018, it was .253.

The difference in earnings doesn't change much, though. Garver would get docked 62 cents using my 2013 AVG formula.

My 12 team AL league's batting averages:

.2634

.2588

.2580

.2553

.2537

.2472

.2454

.2451

.2448

.2447

.2393

Yeah, .268 was pretty damn good.

Does the value come from the fact that .268 is actually a positive for average these days?  That plus 45 RBI gets you 9 bucks in a 4x4?

Man, he went for $7 last year in our league.  He may have been the last potentially helpful catcher on the board.

Catchers tend to find their offense later than most other hitters.

That line was worth 9 bucks???

I'm working on Big Prices for the Guide. Today I have Mitch Garver with a price of $8. What do you think?

This is why Rotoman gets the big bucks, for helping me get $3 profit on my #2 catcher.
