Taking a Trip to Fantasyland


There is only so much negativity one person can take. So to try to think positive let's take the best month for each player currently on the Giants team who isn't hurt and fantasize about how good this team could be if everyone got super hot for an extended period of time.

So here is my hypothetical lineup:

Month

Cody Ross CF

0.269
0.374
0.474

Brandon Belt LF

Pablo Sandoval 3B

Carlos Beltran RF

Migeul Tejada SS

0.333
0.378
0.524

Aubrey Huff 1B
August
0.266
0.330
0.468
115
Mike Fontenot 2B
April
0.233
0.303
0.467
108
Eli Whiteside C
July
0.229
0.327
0.375
100
Tim Lincecum P
July
0.333
0.429
0.333
122
 

With this hypothetical lineup the Giants would score an amazing 6.031 runs per game using the Lineup Analysis tool.

If I plug this offense into my series projection model amazing things happen, instead of having 60% chances of victory against the lowly Astros the odds jump to 86%, 82% and 83% respectively for the final 3 games. This team would go from seriously flawed to a Juggernaut.

With this realization I am going to spend the rest of my waking hours crossing each of my limbs hoping for this magic occurrence of simultaneous hot streaks.
