I suppose everyone can't own Robbie and Newcomb.
Nah, but I have a team that had Verlander, Morton, Kluber and CMart as 4 of my first 5 Pitchers...Ray and Newcomb are too healthy for me :mrgreen:

Anyone get bent over by the new “postponements”?
Nah, injuries to Verlander, Kluber, Ohtani, etc have been more devastating to me this year.
Covid-19 still probably contributed to those injuries in some way.

Re: The Countdown to 600

I see lots of quitters and other weak-willed people on social media. And some in real life. They can't wait to quit, or close, or cancel anything, at the first sign of struggle. "It's too hard, just shut it down" - they seem to be rooting for as much. Including lots of sportswriters. Those people h...

Re: THANK YOU!

Almost 10 months ago to the day, the PreMature League started drafting for the 2020 baseball season. Little did we know that we were drafting a team that would not begin play for almost a year. (A brag for our PreMature Drafters- Without ADP or 'experts' help, our top 13 players and 15 of the top 1...

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

I have zero sympathy for someone who may be inconvenienced by moving into a 5-star hotel for a few months. I missed holidays, anniversaries, birthdays, etc. over 5 deployments in 25 years covering substantially more than “a few months” and was not living in a hotel. I damn near missed the birth of m...

I just think isolating players in hotels for 4.5 months is a non-starter. "Okay, honey, good luck with this frightening new world. See you and and the kids in October."
I did that numerous times for longer periods....and didn’t live in a hotel

Re: Best Baseball Memories

From 97-00, I was stationed in Tucson AZ. My oldest daughter’s birthday fell about the time pitchers and catchers would report and we had the Diamondbacks, Rockies, and White Sox in town. I would take her to the ballpark and get baseballs signed “Happy Birthday, Natalie” by whoever happened to be av...

Re: Leagues already drafted

If not mistaken the very well renowned HOFer, Lindy Hinkleman won the 2019 DC OA from the Kenyon Premature Draftulation DC...the first DC of the year. We all know the risk of drafting early or late. We play with the teams we drafted and the hands we picked for ourselves. Roll the 2020 online stuff a...

I gave my boss a heads up I may need to make a very short notice trip to Vegas.

If it’s online, it’s online. My positions on the matter won’t sway anyone or anything. Just gonna strap on my Depends and go back to binge watching the 2016 season

Re: MLB Season Postponed?

It only takes a few owners to be skittish that a draft/auction can’t occur. I think it is more likely than not Opening Day will be pushed. Given that, we should delay all live events until we know what is what. My guess is that is what happens. We can always do these things online. And if the seaso...

Re: MLB Season Postponed?

Or maybe we sign up and play as normal knowing that the decisions we make likely will have zero impact on the outcome so we decide to live life as it happens Or maybe we get hit by a bus or die of a terminal disease mid-season.

Re: MLB Season Postponed?

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
