Re: Probable Pitchers on Lineup page

Last year, we had a prompt that reminded us about saving lineups when pressing the button on another team. That was VERY useful. Just want to renew Dan's request above. Pretty sure he is right in that last season, if you made one or more lineup changes and attempted to leave the page without saving...

Re: Set Lineup

Just wanted to support this request. Here are a few examples: I have Jean Segura in one starting lineup at MI. Next to his name it says “(2B).” He’s eligible at 2B and 3B, and so it would be helpful to have all his eligible positions listed next to his name so I can quickly see - but don’t have to r...

Re: Draft Champions

Very well said, Dan, and I just want to echo your comments. I absolutely love the Draft Champions format and its value as a welcome distraction during the pandemic cannot be overstated.

Re: Innings Minimum

Thanks, Greg. Can you clarify - does a team that fails to hit 1,000 IP get moved down to 1 point in ERA and WHIP in both league standings and overall standings, or just league standings? Thanks.

Re: Innings Minimum

I agree the 1,000 innings minimum is worth reconsidering for this season. My understanding is that the 1,000 innings minimum is intended to discourage crazy strategies that can throw off league and overall standings, and is intended to be a relatively easy to achieve "minimum." For 2021, however, 1,...

Re: Skinny Little Shit's

Good point and good story. I remember Garvey well - that clean-cut Boy Scout persona - the Dodgers had a great infield and team in the late-70's/early-80's when they played my Yankees in the Series. It must have been awesome to pepper him with questions for a few days - I'd have done the same. It pr...

McKenzie has had health issues and lost velo during the course of a mini-season. He's got really strong skills, but I'll probably lean "under"...

Re: Skinny Little Shit's

Great post, Dan.

I’ll add a skinny little shit for ya - Pedro Martinez. As a rookie he was about 5’ 10” or 11” and had to be sub-160 pounds. He turned out pretty well.

As a lifelong Packers' fan, I've always admired the NFL for keeping my attention for most of the year.

For all you auction fans, we're up to 9 of 15 for Sunday night's DC Auction. 23-round auction on Sunday followed by a 27-round DC (2 hours to start, 1 hour after Round 30). Should be fun.

Sounds great, Greg. Very happy that, at least as of now, we're slated to get a full MLB season with an on-time start date. Especially looking forward to the NFBC's live drafts in NYC and Vegas. Always an awesome time. It's like Christmas in March for me! Hope you/we can pull it off.

Re: Slow Draft Suggestions

Actually, just to clarify, I’m pretty sure that if you Auto draft for Round 20, it will work as follows: (a) it will draft the top player in your Round 20 queue; (b) if none left, it will draft the top player in your general, “All Rounds” queue; and (c) if none left, it will draft the top player in ...

Re: Slow Draft Suggestions

Pretty sure that if you are on Auto and your queue is empty, you will draft the top guy in the default list. It’s never happened to me, but that’s my understanding.

Re: Slow Draft Suggestions

That's good to know for the queue by round. Maybe someone else can confirm? As for the 2 AM I do get the west coast thing but pausing the clock doesn't stop them from drafting. I assumed I wasn't the only one because most drafts i've seen, the pace really slows down after Midnight ET so it seemed l...

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.

“Looking more and more like there will be no Baseball season?” Not sure I agree with that.

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.
