My Portfolio

Having finished NL Tout Wars in NY, I'm done with all seven of my drafts (not counting a Scoresheet League I co-own with Jeff Erickson.) I like to double down on as many players as possible as diversification leads to lukewarm rooting interests in virtually half the league. Here are the results:

Players on Multiple Teams:

Five teams: Stanton

Four teams:: Harper, Morneau

Three teams: Sabathia, A. Ramirez, Jeter, Crawford, Rivera, Ackley, McCann, Profar, B.Hamilton, Mesoraco, Matusz, S. Baker

Two Teams: Tulowitzki, Castro, Lee, A, Jackson, Nathan, M. Moore, Wieters, Lawrie, Ichiro, Maybin, Pierre, Samardzija, Halladay, B.Anderson, D. Brown, McCarthy, Peavy, Broxton, Marmol, Saunders, Moreland, Tazawa, Arenado, Bauer, Britton, Niemann, Liriano, B. Lincoln

If two of Stanton, Harper and Morneau beat expectations, and 2-3 of the players I have on three teams overperform, it's likely to be a great year. Of course, the opposite is true, too.

Chris, Stanton is not on your AL LABR team? Surely he's traded to the Yankees before the trade deadline. :)

Your lust for high upside rookies and ex-stars coming off injuries is apparent. Good luck this year.

I just did this for my 5 leagues, and found that my entire draft portfolio consists of only 108 different players, and would be a lot smaller if I didn't have one team that goes 40 players deep.

Needless to say, it's been a great World Cup thus far. The USMNT having some success would be awesome.
La-La-La-L.A. Gets Lord Stanley!
Just a few things that caught my eye:
  • Alec Martinez's Cup-winning goal celebration? # priceless. I wonder if he'll ever get his gloves back.
  • Henrik Lundqvist stopped the 50th shot of the game. He couldn't stop the 51st. #connsmythe if the Rangers had found a way to come back in this series.
Do Analytics Take the Fun Out of Sports?
Apparently that was the topic of one of the presentations at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference in Boston last week. The presenter, Yale's Edward Tufte, opined:

Don't let people tell you analytics are reductionist and take the joy out of sports. They mostly just take the stupidity out of sports.

Is he right?

The 2014 AL LABR auction went down at the Arizona Republic offices in downtown Phoenix Saturday night. It's a 12-team, 5 x 5, AL-only league with 2 C, 1 1B, 1 2B. 1 3B, 1 SS, 1 CI, 1 MI, 5 OF, 1 U and 9 pitchers. Everyone has $260 to spend.
The Problem With Drafting Billy Hamilton
Billy Hamilton went for $28 in the NL LABR auction this past weekend. I discussed this with a fellow writer who participates in Tout Wars with me later this month and we discussed the problem with investing heavily into Hamilton.
