Re: The NFBC DL Team

Dan, your whole value argument seems mislabeled to me. It seems what you are really bothered by is drafters commenting on their projections as if they were fact rather than opinion, and then describing it as value as if the stats were facts. When a drafter says I 'got good value' for Trout at pick 5...

Re: The NFBC DL Team

I don't agree. That piece of fruit through fantasy eyes, does not have a set price. When we go to the store to buy that piece of fruit, we know the price, we know the quality.... The analogy is not good. The analogy is exact and perfect. We think we know the quality of a piece of fruit like we thin...

Re: The NFBC DL Team

Dan, it seems you can't even draft a good team when you know what's going to happen. :lol: I'm not sure I get the point of this exercise. That drafted team would have been ridiculed for all it's lack of value on draft day. And Value... You keep using this word, value, but I am not sure it means what...

Re: ROTOBOY Early Season Update

Congrats on the excellent start. Doesn't really surprise me. Many of your concepts are what I have used with reasonable success. It would be a hell of a lot easier if ANY pitcher stayed healthy.

Dan, do you happen to know if the same owner put in a bid on Amir Garrett?

That business of sending out a rookie, who had given up 8 runs in 3 innings, to attempt a fourth inning (and give up 3 more runs) seems like karmic retribution.

Re: Dan Vogelbach Added To FAAB On Sunday

Glenn's post was 8 pages of solid debate... Here's how Greg ruled at the time in 2010: I'm not even reading the debate here but any player added to the free agent pool illegally is an illegal pickup. I do not know when EYJ was added to the pool but I am trying to find out now and will have to clean ...

Train, we can't even get STATS to get the correct week #s to correspond to standings and statistics. Asking for additional columns is like asking them to boil an egg using a bucket of ice water.

Re: Come At Me Bro $250 FAAB Auction Sat Mar 18 (post analys

Somehow I missed this entire thread earlier in the year. Must have been prepping for the Main Event. That said, ON THIS THREAD, between Rotoboy and Gekko, Rotoboy seems like the most reasonable and more boisterous of the two. Admirable achievements on both accounts. I wish we had more threads like t...

Re: The Penalty Box

Baseball, and the writers, and Bud Selig, all deserve to share in the blame for the steroid era (error). That blame is shared with the players who cheated. TRUE. And also the fans. Perhaps some casual fans were oblivious to the steroid use, but avid fans all knew and accepted (to some degree) PED u...

Re: Other Draft Results?

Knuckleheads, in case you don't know, nobody gives a rat's ass for your defensive explanation. Nor does anybody give a rat's ass about your pious quote attached to your message board signature. Perhaps you should find a more appropriate biblical quote, something about throwing stones out of shadows.

STATS is making these changes for us and they do it without reading the Message Boards. So your consta...

I don't think anyone is arguing that this could/should be addressed. The order in terms of priority could be debated, but that's not the point either. It's your delivery and the harassing nature of the posts, and the time gaps between them. They also have taken on a slightly personal tone. Other th...

They do have to travel home from Vegas and haven't seen their families in 12 days. Seems like a low priority to me; it's not like the results are going to change. Just a thought.

Re: Other Draft Results?

Thanks, but I am aware of that. What I am looking to do is look at the other drafts in the Main Event. It's ridiculous that it is not set up by now, especially given that we can look at all the other leagues' rosters.
