ROTISSERIE: 30 most intriguing fantasy players for 2020 | BaseballHQ.com

Can he stay healthy for a full season?

David Dahl (OF, COL): If he could ever stay healthy for a full season… Dahl, 25, was on his way to a career year (.302/.353/.524) until a severely sprained ankle sidelined him in early August.

That's only a 109 wRC+ in Coors.

Fantasy baseball don't care about your park factors.

Fantasy baseball don't care about your park factors.

That depends on the format, doesn't it? Or are you defining fantasy = rotisserie?

I think "fantasy" generally refers to anything in which you get points for what the players on your fictional team do today. There's probably a saber park-adjusted fantasy league out there somewhere, where a homerun in Coors is only worth .92 homeruns, but it's certainly not common.

So, you don't consider DMB or OOTP to be "Fantasy Baseball"?

Nope. I'd call that Simulation Baseball, or something like that.

OK. I lump it all together as fantasy.

Regardless, it literally says 'Rotisserie' in the headline.

Fantasy baseball don't care about your park factors.

There's always a risk your fantasy player gets traded to San Francisco (or some other pitchers' park).

Yeah - there's a distinct difference between tracking (and allocating) real-life results (rotisserie and fantasy) vs simulations (OOTP/DMB).

As someone who enjoys both - they're very different animals.... indeed, one big problem (well, to the extent any fluffery around hobbies can ever qualify as a "problem"!) is the mental bleedover.

I.e., underlying mechanics change different in a sim league and it's easy to either over or under value a player because the sim stops correlating with real life. I've burned myself in both - chasing players in roto because I had a good experience with said players in a sim league and vice versa... and it's almost uncanny how this NEVER works out. Almost as if the baseball gods consider you some kind of apostate for doing both and punish accordingly.

Dahl doesn't just get hurt a bunch, he seems to always take much longer to heal than he's supposed to. It's a bad combo.
