- Todd Zola, Fantasy
The irresistible force meets the immovable object. No, I'm not talking about the Man of Steel facing General Zod, but rather two seemingly contradictory forces flummoxing fantasy baseball owners everywhere. Conventional wisdom preaches to practice patience, as by season's end, the numbers will be there. But yet, only 30-40 percent of players drafted in the first round end the season worthy of that spot. So which is it?
Todd Zola examines the relationship between current strikeout rates and hitter projections, and how that pertains to such players as Joe Mauer, Justin Upton, Matt Carpenter and Jay Bruce.
