Mid-Season Check... "A" Players
Posted by Rob Peterson on Monday, Aug. 26th, 2013 at 2:51 PM

So, we're officially past the halfway mark of the season. I want to hear from managers... are you playing your "A" players? If so, what thoughts/impressions do you have?

I can honestly say that I have only played 1 of my "A" RPs... and he gets rocked pretty much every time he's in the game.

Readers Comments

I'm playing most of my A player's. Only one batter though an RF and his average is ok. The only reason I don't field the other 2 A batters is because I have 2 AAAs I'm playing in the same position.

Pitching-wise I'm using one SP who's pretty bad and 2RPs who are ok. They've improving (obviously) as we go through the season, but I'm not sure they'll average what we start with for an AA player. But! I can concentrate on a particular skill so a 2222 pitcher will become a 5352 instead of a 4444 the big question is whether to play them in the majors.

I put my best AAA RP in the majors from the start but he doesn't get the PAs that another AAA RP gets in the minors and is two skill points behind.

I am playing those I can find spots to play.  I have two position players and one pitcher playing.  As Roy mentioned, seems like there are other minor league playeres "blocking" the progress of these 'A' players.

Name Age Pos Throws Control Velocity Durability Fielding G PA SO BB  
Patrick Simpson A rp R 2 (0) 2 (0) 4 (2)

2 (0)

20 62 6 2  
Name Age Pos Bats On Base Power Running Fielding          
  G TPA 1B 2B 3B HR BB SO SB CS TC E
Squirrel Harris A 2b S 3 (1) 3 (1) 3 (1) 3 (1)          
  45 183 32 10 3 5 15 14 1 2 165 4
Jang Hwang A rf L 3 (1) 3 (1) 3 (1) 3 (1)          
  36 172 27 4 0 2 11 27 3 3 135 13

Haven't looked around to see if this is typical but those are the numbers my guys have produced.

Will playing these 'A' players "only" produce "4"  (Total SL 16) players??  Seems like something to do ONLY if you lack in that position but would probably have better luck doing so by drafting/auctions.

I moved a few AA/AAA RPs up to the majors recently, so my A guys are now getting some innings in the minors.  They have not gotten killed, but that seems luck as much as anything.
