Fairly New Here, just trying to learn...

PostWed Aug 22, 2018 12:09 pm

Michael Conforto has a terrible SOM reputation as a lefty hitter vs. lefty pitching. His card is awful L vs L. Last night he goes 0 for 2 against Casey Stratton, a RHP, and then in the 8th hits a monster 3 run homer off Tony Watson, a LHP.

So this morning I look. His numbers dip against the LHPs but go up slightly against the RHPs. Makes no sense to me.

I actually see examples like this often, where guys are not "rewarded" for a good performance, yet other guys have mad swings with ho-hum performances.

Any ideas? (Like I thoought I was pretty smart last night grabbing FA Jeff McNeil at the end of the game after he went 4 for 4, and today his card has significantly changed.) That made sense to me. Conforto should have seen SOME uptick with that HR vs LHP, no?

It's an inexact science for sure... I've seen much worse examples than the Conforto card, and so will you. But I've learned to take the bad with the good. It's a great game even with its flaws. Totally addictive.
I see what you're trying to do, and I've done it myself... I love the idea of beating everyone to the punch by snagging players at night, based on what I think their cards will look like the next day. But it's often disappointing. I had to learn to be patient and wait until I see the new cards with my own eyes. :)
