Yesterday discussion came up on Twitter by Dear Mr. Fantasy podcast host Chris McBrien asking for pairs of players at third base to discuss on their upcoming episode. Someone suggested Brett Lawrie and Manny Machado. From that, I wanted to quickly look at the projections we have for each player to see how they compare.
Introducing our new fantasy baseball player comparison tool. Pick any two hitters, or any two pitchers, each of which have at least one set of 2014 projections from Steamer-Fangraphs or FantasyPros (Zeile) in our database (that is a lot of players), and you can view a one page comparison. Pretty cool.
To get to the tool, go to any player page, and you’ll see in the season projections section on the right side of the table heading a drop-down that says, “Compare [Player] to . . .”. Select any player on the list to compare to the player whose page you are currently on. Then you will see similar drop-downs at the bottom of the comparison tool to change either player from there. If you want to switch from hitters to pitchers, or pitchers to hitters, then start over.
Here are some examples to get you going:
- Chris Davis vs. Prince Fielder
- Jean Segura vs. Jose Reyes
- Buster Posey vs. Wilin Rosario
- Cliff Lee vs. Stephen Strasburg
- Koji Uehara vs. Trevor Rosenthal
I hope you enjoy using this new feature. Post your feedback. Hopefully we can add some more projections, stats and other content to expand on this down the line.
