Re: OFFICIAL NFBC STATEMENT ON 60-GAME SEASON

Greg, No matter your decision, I was going to be okay with it. Like usual, you once again showed your professionalism in handling this matter in the best way possible for all involved. I applaud you and the rest of the NFBC staff and will forever be a loyal customer. Let's all have some fun with wha...

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

Greg and Tom, I'm going to keep this simple. A tough decision lies ahead. Make the decision based on whatever allows the NFBC to continue being a big part of our lives. That's the most important factor in the decision. It's easy to get shortsighted, but we can probably all agree the overall long ter...

Re: OFFICIAL NFBC STATEMENT ABOUT START OF SEASON

We're all fans of the game and obsessed with data here. It's the stuff that bonds us all through the NFBC. I don't voice my opinion often through these threads, but today I will. I am with you, Greg. The owners' greed disgusts me. They're sitting on years and years of positive revenue in the sport a...

Re: Mixed LABR Draft on Sirius XM Tonight (2/13)

I liked so many teams' starts like Jeff Erickson taking Kershaw but then dislike the Story and Darvish picks where they're at. I thought Steve Gardner had a solid start but he waited so long for pitching. I agree with Pod and Todd looking most solid but literally every team did things I really disl...

I am sure many NFBC owners would be willing o contact state legislators and some may know some personally. But,it helps to be "armed" when makin...

Re: FSTA Draft tonight On SiriusXM 210/87

Solid value where you landed Tim Anderson and Greg Bird. I don't see much difference between Tim Anderson and Elvis Andrus. Andrus went four rounds earlier in this FSTA draft. Greg Bird could easily be a poor man's version of Tommy Joseph (8 rounds earlier) or your Mike Napoli pick (7 rounds earlier...

Re: FOX and the World Series

If Joe Buck never calls another MLB playoff game after this year I would be perfectly fine with that. Smoltz is decent and I have actually enjoyed ARod's analysis throughout the postseason. The analysis from Pete Rose and Frank Thomas's has been borderline unintelligible at times. Maybe that's the r...

Re: Prize Payout Process

Greg and Tom, Much appreciation for your hard work. As long as no other promises or date estimations have been made, I think as long as people get paid before the first DC opens up in late November that should be reasonable enough. If people are shelling out anywhere from $150, to $1,600+ for these ...

I see you stayed true to form with your turn choice of two power/speed contributing OF's. I was in the Main Event draft with you on Thursday in Vegas drafting from the 13-spot. I left you with deGrom at the 3-4 turn after making the agonizing choice between him and Greinke (Regretting that one at th...

Stanton, Miggy and Upton? Nice. Rock solid. I will be in there with you looking for catcher upgrades this year. I like your closer strategy. Nice coverage since the spot is very fluid. I will be in the mix for the FA closers as they come available (and they will). Love the Odorizzi, McHugh and JRos...

Re: Edwards King Main Event Blog

Thanks for sharing the play by play of your draft, Edwards. These things never go quite as you plan them! I drafted in Vegas on Thursday, 3/31 from the 13-spot. Going in, I was hopeful that Altuve, Stanton, or Miguel Cabrera would make it to me and felt there was a better than decent chance of that ...

I've put in a call to the Wambulance for you guys complaining about your draft position. I was gifted the 13th pick through KDS for my ME Draft. Stoked! Can't wait to see what scraps are left for me. Those scraps look like filet mignon to me! Let's do this.

The new draft room looks great.

There's some...
