    This is what I use:
    I think TheRock's way works, but here's another way to think about it:

    First find what the average BA of the entire draft pool would be: Take all 168 hitters drafted (or however many your league drafts) and get the league average BA. Let's say it ends up at .270.

    The basic formula Tango suggests is:

    H - (AB * league_average)

    So if A-Rod gets 159 H in 549 AB:

    159 - (541 * .270) = 159 - 146 = 13

    Here's what that formula is doing: Let's suppose that a league average player (the .270 hitter) gets the same number of AB as A-Rod (541). In that situation, how many hits would he have? He would get 146 hits (541 * .270).

    Now A-Rod is projected to get 159 hits. When we subtract the pro-rated hits of the average player (146), we find that A-Rod is projected to get 13 more hits than the league average. That 13 is what Tango uses for xH.

    I think it was the opposite. I traded him predicting his DUI related death. Didn't know it would just be his bats that would die.

    - I didn't trade for a platoon guy or 4th starter so BTS hates it
    - I executed a trade at all so North hates it
    - I traded for a pitcher with fantastic mechanics and very low injury risk, so Abom hates it
    - BTS hates it, therefore GD hates it

    I could go on and on. So predictable.
    I mostly base my opinion on historical evidence

    Just make a google sheet, set it allow anyone with the link to view it, then give us the link.

    We'll add the link to the DDL sheet. Then its up to you how you want to lay it out.

    My trade block was talking about Dull in this thread and concluding that I can pretty safely cut him.
