Appropriately enough this is the initial 2021 post for Chumpson 3 weeks into the season.

It ordinarily would be a bit shocking to me how a SS - 83% owned, ADP'd in the 10-15 rd 12-teamers in Y! leagues - does not have a thread yet, but of course he has been a complete bust so far at that price, so I can understand how no one wants to discuss this waste of time and space. Anyone who discusses him has to admit they drafted him - I'll go ahead and take the heat.

I caught on early in week 2 and started benching him but have been forced to use him more lately due to injuries to other useless SS. An empty spot scores higher than him in roto. WTF is Swanson doing in the major leagues. Dude is a disaster.

It is pretty darn discouraging so far. I was very high on him coming into the season given his pedigree, lineup context, and 2020 results. So far he's a total bum.

Everyone on the Braves not named Acuna has been awful so far. Albies, Freeman, D’Arnaud, Ozuna, and Riley have all started off ice cold. If Swanson is still bad when everyone else is hitting then it will be time to panic.

I’m going to assume this is your attempt at some cosmic fortune reversal. Chumpson, bust on April 20, disaster, shouldn’t be in the Bigs, waste of time and space? Lol.

I can assume from your number of posts that you have a lot of history playing fantasy baseball. Than you know not to panic on April 20.  Any single player in the dumps can have a hot week and be right back on top.

Everyone getting on base vs. Davies but Swanson.

Grounders and Ks.

Didn't see this coming. It's not like he's old.

I'm guessing you posted this after his first AB? Finally did something tonight, and thankfully there wasn't a full slate, otherwise he'd have been on my bench like he has been for a while. Hopefully he keeps it because he's next on the chopping block

I seem to have the reverse jinx power. I say one thing and the opposite happens. So I am glad I posted this and he promptly homers his next AB. And he's had another big game today.

To the fantasy gods, I still think Swanson sucks. Prove me wrong.

He's got 3 homers all to right center, so obviously he's got power. Seems to me like he needs to tweak his swing. He's hitting the ball hard but his launch angle must be low. (Anyone have the data)

According to FG, he's avg exit velocity is 91 mph yet his HR/FB rate is only 7%. Suggests to me that he's just not pulling enough flyballs. LD rate also is 30%, but again maybe some of those are liners at infielders.

broski is going to turn it around......right?

 

🥴

I don't know (why would I look) how many PA's he has this year, but coming into tonight he has 55 Ks in 158 ABs. How this gets turned around is best left answered by a nuclear physicist or something.

Having a nice night tonight but this dude is brutal imo.

I think he's a decent buy low/waiver guy. Hitting the ball harder than usual, and plate discipline isn't far off previous years. Still very early.
