Can you clear this up?
Greg, based on the above answer you provided, why isn't Brewers SP Brett Anderson available to pickup on FAAB tonight? He's got 2 starts and isnt available to bid on.

Re: Florida Man ruins 2020 MLB Season (RIP)

I took the list of postponed games right from MLBs website. Hopefully you were on top of the schedule enough to know the Yankees and Orioles got to play despite having their originally scheduled games postponed. It would suck to bench your players because of postponements then learn later those pla...

Re: Florida Man ruins 2020 MLB Season (RIP)

While I was holding out hope MLB could successfully pull this off, the first week has been nothing short of a fucking joke. Here we are spending thousands of dollars playing while taking ZEROS in our lineups because a whole MLB team is locked down, and of course the teams they were supposed to be p...

Re: Draft Champions Podcast

No one was stirring the pot or attempting to create any controversy on the Draft Champions podcast regarding this, so no idea what you're talking about. So I agree with Greg. Go back to what you were doing. :roll: I don’t need to transcribe the whole podcast because anyone who wants to listen can d...

Re: Draft Champions Podcast

From what I’m hearing on the July 10 podcast the experts like Chris Liss are getting a free entry when they participate in a draft using their name such as the RotoWire “Beat Chris Liss” league. Was there some announcement to back up that assumption? Who was it that made this idea public? Seems lik...

Preparing for more potentially short seasons

There’s no guarantees about the 2021 season and even if COVID is conquered before 2022 we might be looking at a strike or lockout for that year. Heck, when a new CBA gets agreed upon the “regular season” may forever be shorter than the 162 game marathon we’re used to until now. Hopefully season long...

Re: Game 163 in 2020

Agreed. This year more than ever there should be NO games beyond the allotted "regular" season number of 60. It's bad enough that this season is so much more of a complete crap shoot as it is, that games beyond 60 should even be considered especially given how much even one of these games can impac...

I originally wanted to use the title “Game 61 with an Asterisk” but I felt that was too On The Nose.

Instead of bickering how about this: Over/Under on max regular season games played in 2020 = 61.5 Assuming of course the season is ...

You’re not understanding it, I get it.
With only 60 games, the chances of needing a tie breaker this year are significantly higher.
Are you still opposed to stats from these games counting toward regular season totals?

Now that the ME machine has started rolling, will you be announcing any other contests for the 60-game season?

Perhaps an OC at a new, attractive price?

Re: OFFICIAL NFBC STATEMENT ABOUT START OF SEASON

How about the owner who expected to get Michael Pineda back after 60 games, did he get injured? no, freak accident? No. Well sorry that owner should have known something, why draft Pineda and hold him on your bench for those stay-competitive-for-playoff-run strategy owners? Poor strategy we all in ...

Game 163 in 2020

Of course there won’t be a game 163 for any team this season even under the best case scenario... ...BUT with such a short season it wouldn’t be hard to imagine several teams tied at the end of 60 games which would require game 61, and perhaps even game(s) 62+ My question goes to those who hate the ...

Re: OFFICIAL NFBC STATEMENT ON 60-GAME SEASON

Great decisions guys.

Hopefully there isn’t a rash of players opting out of play for 2020 (Trout?) because that would surely give reason for some to shout “unfair!” regarding the already drafted leagues.

Looking forward to recycling refunded fees into new entries! :)

Re: OFFICIAL NFBC STATEMENT ABOUT START OF SEASON

Hopefully everything will work out for the best but after listening all day to MLBNetworkRadio it really sounds like there’s the feeling from several commentators that a significant number of players will want to opt out of the 2020 season. Mike Trout tops the list because he’s likely to take an ext...

COZ,

I assume all Treasury debt will be cancelled, gold confiscated and the new global digital currency gets dropped into place overnight as the cabal is shut down?

Will the NFBC automatically convert account balances to the new currency?

60 games in 61 days 😳
Manfred already said they can’t do double headers because of health concerns.
It should be double headers EVERY day and a 112 game season. Between the 26-man roster and the 24-man taxi squad there’s plenty of talent to go around.

Except for the O’s

Restaurants are easily filling at 25-50% capacity, so why can't MLB ballparks have 5,000-10,000 per game?
So, the Tampa Rays would be business as usual? :lol:
If they can make money with a 25% full stadium then every team should as well.
