Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

What if...

About 15% of players including many stars, decide not to play this year.

Is it fair to have the DCs (and the other drafts) play given that fact?

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

You can tell an owner "well he always injured you should not have drafted him" you cannot say "well you should have known that DeGrom you paid $40 for is now gonna throw the same innings and get the same wins as........Rich Hill lmao". i only drafted 3 leagues this offseason, my lowest number by fa...

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

Owners are voting on a proposal to present to the players today. This sure looks more concrete than any plan we've seen so far and it would consist of an 82-game season because there is the fear of a second wave in the Fall that could make it tough to complete the post-season: https://www.usatoday....

Re: XFL Hosts 1982 Retro Draft - Interesting Concept

No, not yet. No one tried to exploit that, though it could have been more a function of the particular pool than not thinking to conjure a plan. Most of the top relievers of the era tossed a lot more innings than nowadays, so even those focusing less on W/K totaled over 1000. Most had around 1500-1...

This basically becomes an optimization problem. It’s just who can solve it best.

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

Greg/Tom, Looks like we’ll have some sort of a season which is great. I have a question which I’m hoping you guys can assist with. What happens if they start the season and then have to suspend it, or even end it prematurely? I know you don’t like dealing with hypotheticals but this is something I ...

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

I wish we’d know more as to what is happening behind the scenes but maybe it’s all wait-and-see.

I’m annoyed with all of the May/June talk. I’d rather they get this right, take their time than rush ahead.

If we have a season, have it from July-November (5 months) with December playoffs.

Greg, What is the plan for the following given a shortened schedule (apologies if this was covered elsewhere): 1. minimum number of IP 2. minimum plate appearances to get positional eligibility My suggestion would be to simply take the % of the season and apply, rounding down.

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

And yes, bowling is a sport. In fact, if they really want to show bowling as a sport they should show Shawn Childs' league bowling live on TV. He has a 200+ average in one league bowling right-handed and a 200+ average in another league bowling left-hand. NOW THAT'S A SPORT!!! AND THAT'S AN ATHLETE...

Re: MLB Season Postponed?

It only takes a few owners to be skittish that a draft/auction can’t occur. I think it is more likely than not Opening Day will be pushed. Given that, we should delay all live events until we know what is what. My guess is that is what happens. We can always do these things online. And if the seaso...

Early estimates say Covid-19 is ten to 20 times more lethal than the flu and its communicability is still not clear. 20 times mor...

Auctions can be done online. You just have to listen to Greg’s voice “going once, going twice, sold”
An issue could be if you’re at the live events doing both in one day, you have to have a laptop with you if the auction goes online.
