Wisdom from the crowds can be valuable, and from time to time we’ll repost some of our more popular Slack community discussions here on Ottoneu Trade Rumors to carry on the conversation and reference them in the future.

Ottoneu on Slack: Debating rule 1a

Whether you’re new to Ottoneu or a crusty veteran you should join the Ottoneu community on Slack. Wisdom from the crowds can be valuable, and from time to time we’ll repost some of our more popular Slack community discussions here on Ottoneu Trade Rumors to carry on the conversation and reference them in the future.

The Slack community recently debated Ottoneu rule 1a, and more specifically how to enforce it.

For reference, here’s rule 1a:

  “Each team should maintain at all times a roster of 22 major-league players that can fill out a starting lineup. The remaining 18 roster spots can be used for reserves, consisting of both major and minor leaguers.”

2016 Steamer Position Review – 2B

  • Matt Carpenter was a breakout player in 2015 and likely found himself rostered by a lot of Ottoneu league champions.  After hitting 11 HR in 2013, 8 HR in 2014, he smashed 28 last year to an almost 1,000 FGPTS season (1.46 P/PA).  Steamer isn’t fully endorsing the power spike (.426 SLG), projecting just 16 HR in 2016, but despite the regression still sees Carpenter as the #1 2B in the land. If I’m drafting for the first time in 2016 I’m probably going to be very cautious about exceeding $28 – $30 for Carpenter next season, but if you already own him anywhere near his $21 average price, you’re in great shape.
