Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

To be fair, National League teams are like us. When building their teams early in the season, they had no clue we'd be playing with a DH. In that way, we're truly all in the same boat. :D By the same token, it may help NL pitchers in other ways. They will not be pulled for a pinch hitter when throw...

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

And, with all due respect, if Trout or Snell or any other top of the line guys choose not to play, so what? We're in a different world for this season, and we need to adapt accordingly. Adjust your lineups. Use the FAAB. We all agree that no draft is won in the first round. Otherwise it's not a gam...

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

I signed up for 2 $1000 DC's knowing that over a 162 games season I have an edge over my competitors. For a 60 games season that edge is cut in more than half. Add to that the NL DH which completely changes the value of all pitchers considerably and all hitters to a lesser degree. I have no problem...

Re: Suspended game KC vs BOS

I believe those points were applied to the overall standings now, just not showing up on player cards, team stats page, or live scoring..... so all should be good now. Sorry for jumping the gun on that, but with the cut coming 3 points is 3 points.

Re: Suspended game KC vs BOS points not applied?

I notice that Christian Vazquez should have +3 points today and I do not believe it has been applied. I assume that the few other players that lost or gained points from the completion of the suspended game today have not been adjusted either.

Re: Bellinger July 14 - Scoring Change?

From MLB scoring changes: "7/14 LAN at BOS, In the top of the 12th inning there should be no at-bat charged to Cody Bellinger who reached on an interference error by P Hector Velazquez." According to NFBC's player card for Cody Bellinger, the stat line for 7/14 now reads 3 ABs, 1 run, -1 points for ...

Re: Incorrect data

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe it’s because live scoring doesn't compensate for a guy with 14 points getting swapped out for a guy who just went for 15 points, for example. Live scoring will still show 15 for the day, even though you've only actually gained 1 point for the week. League stan...

Re: Incorrect data

Did they change the point values? Peacock got 15 points last night but NFBC says 19 despite all the stats being correct. I noticed that one day with I think Junis. He had like 17 in the day column, but 15 in the week column. 15 was correct. That’s a mystery to me, but if you add up the week column ...

Re: Notes for IT

What I don't like is the fact that you're forced to pick a guy to drop when you go to save a FAAB bid. You should be able to leave that blank like in the past so you can keep track of who you might want to pick up, and then decide on Sundays if you actually want to drop someone. Not being able to ma...

I haven't been in a draft room yet, but according to the ADP, Miguel Rojas (MIA) is only eligible at SS. I believe he should be eligible at SS, 3B, and 1B?

They pop up right when you Claim Your Prize. Do that and you'll see them.
I guess I missed that. Left $1000 in my account and signed up for two teams today. No $25 bonus. Oh well. No big deal. Easy come, easy go.

Re: Urena

I guess Clevinger is a bush league SOB too, since he just plugged a guy that was all over him with the same pitch that hit Acuna. Let’s hope he takes a line drive to the head. Oh, and by the way, Ray Fosse agrees.

Baloney. When did Major League Baseball become A League of Their Own? Oh, I remember. When they stopped running over the catcher and made the take out slide illegal.
