Re: Drafting Without Making a Pick

Just wanted to quickly weigh-in and support your position that there should be some greater penalty for timing out without anyone in your queue. I would prefer to see a single default list without updates be used. I would rather have folks have to search for players that may be lower on the list tha...

Re: NFBC Main Event Format For 60-Game Season

Another vote for $1,200 entry fee, $5,000 top league prize, and $100,000 top overall prize. Like others, I'll also be grabbing multiple Main Event teams.

Nice job today, guys. Impossible situation handled really well.

Re: Is it time to move on to next year... ?? Fu*k Fauci

“Looking more and more like there will be no Baseball season?” Not sure I agree with that. I have to believe owners and players will work it out, rather than the alternative...NOTHING and risk jeopardizing a % of the fan base for next year. As for me, I’m very much looking forward to the season and...

Re: Dylan Carlson

Well, I certainly understand why you're still drafting! Man, life without sports is just not as much fun. In a normal May, I can't even imagine how much time I spend thinking (obsessing?) about baseball and my fantasy baseball teams, although I'm sure it would horrify the rest of my family if they k...

Re: Surly and Slowly

Totally agree, Dan. In this age of smart phones, e-mail notifications, and the advanced capability of Auto (which now lets you set-up different queues by round), there's no excuse for being habitually slow round after round. Yes, life (and shit) happens, and sometimes more time is needed. In my expe...

Re: MTM Second Chance Fast DC #2: No Doom & Gloom Zoom Draft!

Now, that was fun. Started at 6 pm EST and knocked out almost 22 rounds the first night. Most guys were hanging out in Zoom chatting and BS’ing for the bulk of the evening. Great idea by MTM and a fun lockdown distraction.

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

Hey, Greg. Quick question. I recall you indicating previously that the NFBC would be adjusting minimum innings pitched levels assuming we have a baseball season. That makes sense, as does waiting to know how long any season might be before deciding what those levels should be. Apologies if you've co...

Re: Empty Stadiums and Full Drafts

Great post, Dan. This has been the most challenging season to prepare and draft for from a fantasy perspective.

Greg - Have the dates been chosen for the $150 and $500 Auctions/DC (the non-FAAB) leagues? Can’t seem to find them; I apologize if they’re posted and I’m just missing them. Definitely would be interested in ones at both price points, preferably on a Saturday or Sunday evening. Thanks.

Re: Twas the Night Before Opening Day

Awesome, Dan. Great job. You, indeed, are the poet laureate of fantasy baseball.

Your selection also is apropos. For many of us, including me and you, the NFBC live drafts truly are “Christmas in March,” and we surely have been robbed this year.

Great question. Was just chatting about this very recently. For me, it was October 6, 1978. Attending my first Yankees play-off game. Seats in the nose bleeds. It was Game 3 of the ALCS, Royals at Yankees. Series was tied 1-1. Yankees wound-up winning 6-5 in a thriller. Had to look up the date and s...

Not positive about the low IP floor if all stats count, but follow your thinking. While I might ...

No objections if you want to experiment with it in some satellite leagues, but personally I'd have no interest in adopting 3RR more broadly.
