Gonna be an even weirder season!

"Austin Barnes will start at catcher for the Dodgers in their Opening Day game on Thursday night against the Giants. Will Smith will be the primary catcher this season in Los Angeles, but manager Dave Roberts doesn't want to overwork the youngster." Overwork him? It is the first freakin' game of the...

Re: 2020 and 2.7

Thsnks, Dan! An embarrasment of riches. In my three drafts, I have a #3 and two #1's. I will have Acuna in at least one, but have to think about maybe Yelich or Betts for one to "diversify"....good problem to have! https://64.media.tumblr.com/9b47aa1db1b4fa50f95aad319c4bddae/tumblr_ndm70l1ikL1s0y84k...

Re: 2020 NFBC Sprint Main Event Draft Orders

Hint: For the NFBC Sprint Main Events Thursday, July 23 3 pm ET, Ronald Acuna, Jr. will not be available for you in the first round! :D Big surprise, right? Looks like (another) tough league. Looking forward to it! https://i0.wp.com/prospects365.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/ronald-acuna-jr.gif?res...

Re: 510+ Teams Now For The 2020 NFBC Sprint Main Event

Amazing. In such a short time. Not blowing smoke up your skirt, but when MLB finally announced the "sprint" season, I thought you would be lucky to get 405 or 420 signups.

Congratulations!

Now you are talking....still, there is always that first reaction that makes you feel that you are an integral part of an Abbott & Costello routine "Who's on first?"

Re: 2020 and 2.7

But the good news, Dan, is that we get to go head-to-head again (8:00 pm ET on the 23rd). Of course, there are some other no-names in the league like Schroter, Smith, Butler, Schechter, Waggener, Childs/Ferrari and Cha (who I already have in two of my three leagues...yeah!!!). Gonna be interesting.....

Re: NFBC Main Event Format For 60-Game Season

OK, I'll play the contrarian: I think that everything should just be pro-rated, like the player salaries, at roughly 37%. So an entry fee of $625 leads to a grand prize of $55,000. If that lower fee generates a higher number entries you can upwardly adjust the payoffs as soon as the season begins. ...

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

Not trying to pour salt in any wounds, but it is about draft time in Vegas. This would have been the 17th straight year I would have been somewhere to draft live (Once in Chicago, once in New York, twice in Florida, twelve in Vegas with #17 going to be lucky 13 in Nevada).

We are not adjusting the Main Event at this point, even though we don't know how many people will stay in it or how many people will add to them. I think we have 535 entries now and so our hope is that there's still time to make this work. Greg, I am in. Whenever baseball starts games, I will go an...

I think that it is obvious that there will be some sort of delay to the start of the MLB season, but there WILL be a season. It sucks that it may be abbreviated, but this may come with the territory no matter what in other extenuating circumstances that could come up. We all know that going in whet...

Draft/auctions as scheduled.

If start of season is delayed, it’s delayed. Less time for players to get hurt, more time for injured players to come back. Build this into your plan.

All this “what if” bullshit is wasted noise
