One of my leagues has a salary cap only.

The other limits the number of players you can acquire who are in their option year as well as players over $30.  But, it has no cap.

Any signs he is going to right the ship?  Holding on for at least some progression toward the mean, but looks like he could cost me a spot in the money. Nullifying decent seasons from Buehler and I Anderson on my squad. Had I paid a dollar more ($25) he at least would be an asterisk player I could use in a dump deal. Curious if many dynasty leagues have the asterisk player rule to help limit dump deals.  I prefer the in-season salary cap approach.

He went for $35 in our league (estimated inflation pre-draft was 28%).  We really really wanted him and had allocated $30 which we thought would be plenty, and we weren't even close.  And I'm already having non-buyer's remorse.

Anyone want to confess to bidding $34? :-)

Maybe "mistake" is too harsh ... but I felt he was "must have" for me ... which means, if the player is any good at all, "overpay" ... which, by definition, is NOT "overpay" ... ie. someone else was willing to pay $34 ...

Bottom line: this is the year!!!

(Side Note: today is "game 7" :-))

"How is this guy going for $35?" asked my partner.  I wasn't sure until I looked carefully at the screen:

Lynchmob.

This is the year!!!  Tingler lets him go the distance in game 7.

The thing is the FIP contains the information you need on LOB% without looking at LOB and since it looks like ERA is easily understandable. LOB% is great for explaining why ERA doesn't equal FIP, but it by itself it doesn't tell you how much was changed. The components in FIP do that. Good call.

I think having both FIP and xFIP is helpful, because xFIP doesn't assume that HR/FB is going to regress to normal. Some pitchers allow more homers. xFIP shows that.

Good job!

Thus the best LOB percents one year regressed the next year (with the exception of Verlander) and ERAs went up a lot or a little, depending on the regression. Makes sense.

FIP and LOB% were my finalists for the Fangraphs stats at the start of the comment threads. I'm thinking maybe I picked the wrong one.
