Re: XFL Hosts 1982 Retro Draft - Interesting Concept

I didn't set the eligibility so I'm not 100% sure, but I think it was the default from mlb.com, where we got the stats. It was decided everyone would be eligible at just one spot, keeping in mind the purpose was as much 12 guys getting together for a few hours as it was the draft itself. We did it i...

Re: XFL Hosts 1982 Retro Draft - Interesting Concept

No, not yet. No one tried to exploit that, though it could have been more a function of the particular pool than not thinking to conjure a plan. Most of the top relievers of the era tossed a lot more innings than nowadays, so even those focusing less on W/K totaled over 1000. Most had around 1500-17...

Re: Being Civil with the V Word

Found this in a column from some clown, I hear he also does podcasts too Value is the most misused term in fantasy baseball, well, all fantasy sports. Value is past tense. We don't know a player's value until after the season. Yet, many will contend a good draft or auction is all about getting value...

Re: Stan Kaye

So sorry to see, Stan will be missed. Adding to his computer lore, I used to get a yearly phone call, asking for help subscribing to my site. I'd talk him through the process, it usually took five to ten minutes. We'd then talk another hour about the upcoming season, after which he'd always joke, "N...

Re: Rules for 2020

Week 17 in the NFL and the last week or two of the MLB is not an apples to apples comparison. Excluding Week 17 was around long before high stakes since most fantasy football leagues are head to head and it made sense not to decide a league championship on ONE WEEK where odd things happen. The high ...

Re: Rules for 2020

Todd, all those regular season stats, no matter the inning are there for everybody. Whatever happens, happens. We have no control over whether a game is rained out or goes 15 innings. In either one of those cases, whatever statistics are tallied. For game 163, whether it is called a regular season ...

Re: Rules for 2020

Dan, it's not a playoff game. The regular season determines who makes the playoffs. If after 162 games, teams are tied, another regular season game is needed to determine who makes the playoffs. Continuing to call is a playoff game because you want to does not make it as such. Game 163 is a regular...

Re: Rules for 2020

Extra innings are in our hands - don't count them. Rain shortened games are akin to a postponement not made up. The extra game(s) are a consequence of the regular season.

Not convinced... yet.

Re: Rules for 2020

Honest question, not trying to troll. I'm on the fence and am looking for a reason to be swayed either way. What's the difference between extra innings and the extra game(s)? What isn't there a push to exclude stats in extra innings? I'm not a gambler, but I suspect if you bet the under on an 8.5 li...

Re: Rules for 2020

Given I'm ambivalent to the extended season rule, something I don't like is having the chance to reset the lineup on Monday. Personally, I feel if the games count, everyone's Week 26 lineup should be locked in for the extra games.

Re: Trea Turner and Speed

FWIW, while some will dismiss this because "It's not the NFBC Main", the overall champion of the TGFBI (a 315 team competition among the fantasy baseball industry hosted by Greg/Tom/Darik) took Trea Turner 6th overall.

quality starts reward a 4.50 era.
The aggregate ERA of every win is 2.02.

The aggregate ERA of every quality start is 1.88.

Wins reward worse than a 4.50 ERA.

Grabbed Corbin as my 1st pitcher in an OC. Great start to hitting but not sold on my pitching. What are your thoughts on Corbin? Can he anchor a staff? I prefer to look at the entirety of a staff as opposed to an anchor. He's about SP13 for me, so I suppose technically, yes, that's an anchor. I'm n...

So we had our 5th Rotowire Online Championship draft last night and you can now sort those 12-team ADPs separately at playnfbc.com/adp.
