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? And “what if” the MLBPA rejects the final offer from the league and MLB decides to play a on their terms a season with minor leaguers? We can “...

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

Devil’s advocate here... When MLB decides on the number of games in the 2020 season and NFBC bases the Minimum Innings Pitched threshold for their games, can we be confident that number is set in stone? For example the numbers might be 82 game season and 500 IP. If there’s a second wave of COVID, an...

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

Hi guys. I opened this thread and searched “Cutline FAAB” but got no results so I’m hoping that means my questions aren’t already addressed. With the season on hold I’m assuming there will not be a FAAB run on April 7 as per the rules. If the season is shortened significantly, will there still be tw...

Re: Shohei Ohtani

I realize nothing can be changed about the way we're handling Shohei Ohtani this year since drafts have already happened, but I think the current option of designating him as a pitcher or a hitter each week is less than optimal for this unique talent. Certainly, if he were projected for 600 at bats...

Re: Rules for 2020

No, because any game 162s required to be played after the regular season ends on Sunday are SCHEDULED games that had to be played. If a Sunday game 162 is postponed to Monday and is required to be played, that game should count. Sometimes that game 162 isn’t the game Sunday at the end of the season...

Re: Rules for 2020

Greg - I’ve heard from many owners indicating they prefer to keep the existing rules. Surveys have their pitfalls, and I would suggest it will prove to be a waste of time. It would be VERY entertaining to see a team I am associated with move ahead of MTM’s team in the standings via game 163. That a...

Re: Ryan Mountcastle, et. al.

Here is a general suggestion: eliminate or minimize the white space. It’s everywhere whether in the draft room or the transactions pages. Use a thinner font. Isn’t the proportion of white space variable dependent on the size of the users screen? What you suggest isn’t as easy as it sounds without p...

All thru 2019 including the post season I’ve received email from SportsHub with no issues.

Sounds like you’d feel the same way about 2 Japan/Mexico/Australia/Wherever games that start the season overseas. Right? Not everyone will have players on either of the two teams playing those distant site games. So it gives owners who have those players an advantage. Get rid of game 163 and you go...

Re: Next Year is Coming Fast

Bumping due to unanswered question. Greg, if you refuse to answer because you feel the answer is obvious then I’ll accept that. I just hope that when you refer to “optimal scoring” it’s for the overall team not just Ohtani being shoehorned into Hitter or Pitcher based solely on which position gained...

Deadheadz: It's optimal scoring lineup for the Cutline. He will go where your team scores the most points with him. If he's worth 20 pitching points and that's among your highest scoring pitchers for the week he will go there. If he scores 10 hitting points and he's your highest scoring DH, where d...

I’ll ask again: Greg/Tom/Darik Please explain how this will work for Ohtani in the Cutline game. Will it simply be he plays wherever he has the most points? Or will he be used where his points benefit the owner the most? If another hitter has 1 point fewer than Ohtani, his benefit might be more as a...

Re: Next Year is Coming Fast

This would be a better fit for Cutline too. Just sayin'....... :D In roto you decide each week if you want him to be a P or DH? Remember how the Angels seemed to pitch him usually on Sundays? Makes you decide Monday about his Sunday start. In Cutline what happens? We don’t set lineups in Cutline.

Yes, we have said how we're going to handle Ohtani, which is the basis of this thread!!

Brendan McKay could qualify in the same role and if anyone else is worthy it would be the ...
