I took over a team for an outed alias. I am up against the cap with a pretty weak team and horrible fielding. So I started an experiment in order to get a DH bat into the line-up. Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Player Profile: Frank Nieve
is playing RF. Thru 218 innings, he has 1 error, 2 negative plays, 1 assist and a 1.28 RF. Extrapolated out to a full season, he'd finish with 7 errors, 13 negative plays, 7 assists and produce 207 put outs.
Prior to taking over the team, Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Player Profile: Chris Carter
had logged 246 innings in RF with 2 errors, 1 positive play, 2 assists and a 1.46 RF. He'd finish with 12 errors, 6 positive plays, 12 assists and 237 put outs.
Short version: DH with 6 range and 24 glove(arms are close enough) would have 5 less errors, 13 more negative plays, 5 less assists, 6 less positive plays and 30 less put outs than a 73 range/69 glove out in RF. I'd feel comfortable throwing out the errors from the equation but, because he can't get to as many balls, maybe it's about right.
Seems to back up my contention that a rock can play RF.
