Marques Colston does not equal Jermaine Dye

So stop talking him up so much like he's a Fantasy Football God!

What's with all the baseball analogies lately? I follow baseball pretty casually and I don't see the relation between Colston in Dye being even close enough to mention they're not equal. I guess you could also say Marques Colston does not equal Paris Hilton.

But hey, you're right. We've got a largely undrafted 7th round rookie WR putting up top 10 FF WR numbers, why would anyone talk about that?[/sarcasm]

Dye's been around a while, but he was undrafted in many leagues, and was available via WW in most by June, when he broke out (OF is a very deep position in baseball, and people usually have more backups at the infield positions than anywhere else). And what were Colston's Monday stats again? [sarcasm]

And I may be a main contributor of the evil baseball seed, but seeing that my Shaun Alexander = Johan Santana post drew 70+ replies, there's some interest in the analogies in the Football Cafe.

And Colston's a rookie...where's the similarity there?

I only looked through the thread briefly, but wasn't most of that arguing about whether or not it was a legitimate analogy, and didn't it get locked?

Both were lightly regarded players at a position that has a lot of players pre-draft. Dye exploded to be one of the best at outfield. Colston, thus far, has made a case to be one of the better outfielders. The comparison is that they're not the same; implying that Colston is not going to keep it up.

No. It was actually a really interesting discussion comparing players across fields with their fantasy predictions and performance (stud/ww/bust/whatever). The only, "arguing" was the football-only guys just making asinine comments, comparisons, and begging for some reason to lock the thread. But it was really a one-sided fight since, for the most part, they got ignored.

I guess that depends on what you would call a "really interesting discussion."

If i remember correctly several of the baseball guys had to resort to name calling.

Several of us had said that we thought that the baseball analogies were basically pointless (which they are in a fantasy football disucssion) and people just kept throwing them out there to piss us off.
