Re: PreMature E-Draftulation League

I think it's cool and very on brand that the American League Champs didn't have a player selected until pick 49. It is very cool on that level. Tampa, like the Dodgers, plays an interchangeable parts game. Chris Taylor equals Mike Brousseau who equals Kike Hernandez who equals, well, you get the pi...

Re: Tiers and Other Stupid Stuff

I was asked why tiers are stupid. Well, they kind of are and they kind of aren't. Tiers are in our own minds. For instance, this writer that I talked about thinks there is a tier of 12 players, then a chasm. He built this in his own mind. Why? Because he is set on either having power arms or power/s...

Tiers and Other Stupid Stuff

James Anderson is a writer for another site. I believe he has entered some NFBC contests, but as with a lot of scribes, I hardly ever see his name is the winners circle. But that's neither here nor there. I bring up his name because of an article he wrote. Actually, it wasn't the article as a whole ...

One Word

I've been drafting in the PreMature League. We pretty much set what ADP will be in the coming year with the NFBC. Sure, there are some outliers. I'm guessing DJ LeMahieu will not be a first round choice in most drafts. Still, the core of the group is true for drafts to come. Each drafter in every dr...

Re: Looking For Feedback On 2021 Cutline Championship

As for the 40 players Best Ball where everyone scores, I understand the lure of that contest, but comparing it to football isn't exact. We don't have ANY contest in football that scores every single player. Again, I'm not knocking that concept, but it's not something we run in any other sport. And ...

Re: PreMature E-Draftulation League

By the way, Rich, I do not agree with something previously stated. I believe you took Stanton right about where he'll be drafted in subsequent drafts. Where you drafted him is right about where the risk meets the reward. If trusting Stanton's health, it's a very good pick. I believe others will feel...

You sure protect 'your' players, Rich! Good for you. If you'll notice, all the players mentioned with different bodies..fat, thin, or just right like Griffey, were not slaves to the DL. Truth be told, Stanton said he went through flexibility exercises to reduce injury last year.....and a couple of y...

Re: PreMature E-Draftulation League

We can will ourselves to not smoke. Or to not eat. Or not drink as much. We have that within our power. Stanton cannot will himself not to get hurt. He can be as determined as all get out as he has the past couple of seasons. But, it's just hope, not will. Simply, he does not have a baseball players...

Drafting season is here. I believe in the future (hopefully the not too distant future) that a draft room will be open as each baseball season concludes. Six months of baseball. Six months of drafting. The PreMature Draft is going on now. We draft by Google sheets and email. It works. I love the pro...

I could see judge and mondesi flipping rounds. Mondesi always seems to have a monster last month to tease a full season of dominance and the gap over 2nd in steals was significant and could be 20 over a full season. And for judge, he started off making anyone that took him look like a genius and th...
