Free Agent Fantasy Team Update: Jeff Keppinger Angst-Off the Radar

This week is actually the first week with no roster moves for the All Free Agent Fantasy team. However, Thomas Neal and Mike Fontenot did suffer somewhat minor injuries in the minors. With some many injuries in the inactive part of my roster, they could be release candidates if they aren’t back quickly and someone else becomes available to sign.

Most teams had played about 24 games by Sunday, so here is how team is faring

1.4 fWAR, 8.456 Wins and 15.544 Losses

2.1 rWAR, 9.156 Wins and 14.844 Losses

1.6 WARP, 9.28 Wins and 14.72 Losses

-1.5 WAA, 10.5 Wins and 13.5 Losses

So we see that the team is still struggling. Perhaps most alarming is that FanGraphs has my team as the worst. Since their pitching WAR is based partly on FIP, it may be saying that my team is due to regress even further, which is obviously not good news since the team is not doing very well anyway.

On a programming note, I will be moving these free agent team updates to my personal blog at irfast.blogspot.com. I will post them on Sunday’s, so check at the blog then for the next update as I won’t be posting them here any longer.
