Roster updates are stupid

SDS

I feel like they just choose players to completely ignore. Andres gimenez has killed it in his ti.e for the Mets and has barely been upgraded.

Also last week during the stream on Rorys risers he mentioned Conforto going diamond. All the guy did since then was bat .346 hit 2 HRs and walk 5 times and no upgrade...

What is up with Teoscar Hernandez! lol I invested in him about 10 days ago because he was on fire. They didnt boost him at all last Friday. He hadnt played in like 2 weeks. So since he hadnt played the last couple weeks I figure no way he goes up today. So I sell off half of them and he comes back last night goes 0-5 and his card goes up a full 3 points today! I mean I still have like 30, but cmon.

Look at Dom Smith. Been batting over 300 all season, leads the league in doubles last i checked. Ops over 1.000 and he just finally got upgraded to gold

All I know is I never invest yet picked up almost 100 Sixtos when he was 55 Stubs...

Wow..there is literally no defense or explanation for that lol. That's so inconsistent it hurts.

Ah, thanks. Forgot about him. I have about 20 of him. Nothing special. Almost forgot.

They've always had inconsistencies and have a tendency to not reflect real play. This year, who knows...I haven't kept up with real baseball as closely as I usually do, so I don't know how accurate/inaccurate they are.

I know a few years ago, I did a pretty deep dive comparing like 4 pitchers. They all had very similar career stats, peripherals, etc., but one never went above a silver (and if I recall correctly was actually the best of the ones I looked at in that particular season), and one was a diamond, and the others were gold. Then, I posted something about it either on here or on reddit and it did not lead to constructive conversation. At all.

SDS

David fletcher is killing it this year and he's still stuck at 84....

SDS

In 12 less innings, Ryu has 0.5 more rWAR than Cole, yet Cole is 8 ovrs higher.

SDS

Kwang-Hyun Kim got a good upgrade to 75 but the fact he was down at a 72 at all is laughable. 0.83 in 5 starts since entering the rotation. 8-1 overall...

SDS

D’Arnaud has way better stats and 3 year average than will Smith. But smith goes gold. Swanson has had a bad week, but he should have been good weeks ago, he’s got better stats than Croneworth who went gold after no time.

Dustin May says hold my beer....

Can anyone explain why Seth Lugo with a 4.40 era is a diamond? Did he earn a Topps moment and they accidentally changed his live series instead of adding a moment card?

Probably because his horrible game on Sept 15th came after the Sept 11th roster update and they forgot about him on the 18th roster update?

He only became a diamond because he got switched to a starter (K/9 and H/9 have different thresholds between starters and relievers). and that was before his rough game
