How should I end this season?

Geography is a given (i.e. in the crapper). Started weak and dropped like a cheap of socks. But can have some fun. Should I get: Seth Beer - Sounds like a made up name to put on the back of a Frat Softball team. But still, a guy named "Beer" on your fantasy baseball team. Just fits... Lars Nootbaar ...

Re: NFBC Adds Rotowire.com Player Notes & Injury Reports

Great Greg! Now if you could just get them to include a card that will notify us something like "Looks good on paper, but will suck swamp water during the year" (i.e. the Eugenio Suarez or Zack Plesac Notify) that would be a real enhancement.

Re: Washington Nationals

I am hurt that you would have me batting last, Wayne. :D Well, somebody had to provide top cover for the Mayor! Thanks for the shout out, Wayne! :D You're welcome my friend...and I agree with what you wrote. Good teams have to do what Washington is doing, but it is rough on the fans (and Soto).

Re: Washington Nationals

Oh, I don't know. The big left-hander got a little gas left! Though the Braves were certainly active (though Jorge "Butcher" Soler is a bit of a head scratcher on a defense first team), I hate the fire drills that some teams had. I understand it and the Braves certainly did it a few years ago, but f...

Rich Hill to the Mutts!

"Mets acquired LHP Rich Hill from the Rays for RHP Tommy Hunter and C Matt Dyer. Hill's results and spin rate have gone down since the league began cracking down on grip enhancers. However, he's pitched well overall this season with a 3.87 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 91/36 K/BB ratio over 95 1/3 innings. He'...

Padres-Nationals Game

I feel so bad for the fans at last nights Padres-Nationals Game. Saturday night at the ball game interrupted by what the press calls an "incedent" just outside the third-base side of the ball park. Nothing like a ball game, a beer, a red hot, and gunfire to make your Saturday night complete. Has the...

Re: Lineup Lock Times This Week

So as you can tell this morning, you are still able to move Starting Pitchers in and out of your starting lineups. Nothing locked last night before the Yankees-Red Sox game, which was ultimately cancelled. We believe the system will allow you to move your pitchers and hitters today until the start ...

Re: 227 Players on the IL- Perhaps a tweak is due

I've been playing here a lot shorter time that most of those who post, but in light of the historic number of players on the IL, and apparently increasing every day, may I be bold enough to suggest that 1 or 2 IL spots be added to the 7 player bench. I can't speak for anyone else, but my bench is t...

Just like riding a bicycle. You never really forget how. There is a different dynamic to drafting live (i.e. actually in the room with other people…nothing online should ever be described as “live”…).

Mike should (and probably will) have the last word, but I could not resist adding my congratulations. I am sure it was hard fought but if anyone of us deserved a win like this, it would be you.
