RIP Kent Stermon

Kent Stermon took his own life. I met Kent Stermon after my first year in the NFBC. Kent was a one of a kind fella. He was brutally honest. He was full of life. And you knew that if you were a friend of Kent's, that he would do anything in the world for you. He enjoyed baseball and especially the NF...

I am a fan of the Gladiator format. It lets me get the drafting itch scratched and adds zero stress for the season.
All good.
I am definitely in the minority there. It is wildly popular.
Just not my cup of tea.

Re: Shits and Giggles

After being laughed at by John Pausma, I have to put this statement on record for all to see.

I believe this coming year will be the first time EVER that a Closer is drafted before a Starter in a Main Event.

Just want to be on record, be it for Nostradamas sake or be it for my stupidity..... :lol:

Re: Shits and Giggles

One thing to note... I haven't drafted a DC in a month and just got into one yesterday. WOW! 'The Gladiator' has really influenced the default setting. Maybe we should have a default separate for that contest? Or maybe not. I've always been a fan of as little default as possible forcing each drafter...

Shits and Giggles

Being an NFBC participant is hard. 1. We all have lives. Real and fantasy. Maintaining a balance between the two is difficult sometimes. 2. Time. We only have so much. Both in real and fantasy life. Team must be picked carefully. 3. Money. Like time, we only have so much. And again, teams must be pi...

Re: Havin Fun With 2023 ADP

I just drafted Juan Soto with the 11th pick. I think last year was just an off year for the slugger. We will probably find out some excuse of why he had such a bad year in the coming days, I just hope it wasn't a lingering injury he enduring. I love reading you pieces, keep up the good work. Perfec...

Re: Havin Fun With 2023 ADP

ROUND 1 ADP 1-15 Those who know me already know what I am going to say. I said it last year (probably too much) and the same goes for this year... I was incredulous last year when Soto was taken near the top of drafts. Juan Soto is not a first round choice. What Juan Soto IS is an incredible basebal...

ROUND 2 ADP 16-30 We have reached the top two rounds. Instead of being the hardest of all rounds, these two rounds each have a player that easily does not belong. One word......HYPE. Hype is the reason. If we look at what a player has done more than what a player CAN do, it will change our drafting ...

ROUND 3 ADP 31-45 I'm calling it. This is the year. I will use no statistics for this guy. He has been impeccable over a long career. Cooperstown awaits. He has been either a first round or second round pick for umpteen years. And I have drafted him a lot during that time. I'm talking about Max Sche...

ROUND 4 ADP 46-60 Within the space of three months, Starling Marte stole 39 bases. An owners dream. He won some leagues for his owners in 2021. Last year, he stole 18 bases and had 16 HR. It is totally understandable why he has a fourth round ADP. Totally. Marte is a speed guy. Not a judy. A speed g...

ROUND 5 ADP 61-75 We punish and applaud players for the previous season through ADP. Julio Rodriguez is being taken number one overall in some drafts. That's a standing applause with three curtain calls and shouts of "BRAVO!" Then, there's a guy like Noah Syndergaard who is much like the previously ...

ROUND 6 ADP 76-90 Would you draft a guy with this line in the sixth round? .244/39/12/32/9 Neither would I. Yet, every year, for his eight MLB years, this player has been drafted highly. Mostly higher than the sixth round. Crazy, right? The player is Byron Buxton. Buxton breaks hearts every year. Ye...

ROUND 8 ADP 106-120 There are some things us folks from Colorado know that other states do not. For us, we know it is very hard for athletes to play sports here. We know that our teams will hardly ever have a 'Rookie of the Year' for example. Players need that year to acclimate to our thin air and o...

The PreMature E-Draftulation League

Once again the PreMature League has started drafting for next year while this year of play continues. It looks to be a wide open year of drafting. For sure, their is no dominating player that teams just have to have. I would say that no one player will be the consensus number one player on over 50% ...
