Re: OFFICIAL NFBC STATEMENT ON 60-GAME SEASON

As far as I'm concerned, this is extremely well done and more than fair. Have to say I like the Cutline change; just hope no cuts benefits me as it would have last year!

Re: OFFICIAL NFBC STATEMENT ABOUT START OF SEASON

Yes, baseball could have owned July and possibly grown the game with positive results for both players and owners for years to come. But instead, we get this.

And yes, I want to move forward with the teams I've drafted.

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 te...

Yes, fools indeed! While the names have changed, the owners have never gotten over losing the reserve clause.

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

Yes, the billionaire owners don't seem to realize the damage they are doing to the value of their billion dollar franchises. In the midst of this nation's twin tragedies they are forfeiting the advantage baseball could have had by being first out of the gate and owning the sports world in July. Rath...

105,000 dead and 40 million unemployed and owners and players are haggling over money. What a truly pathetic look for baseball.
Exactly right.

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

Given the twin tragedies that this country is facing now, if baseball isn't played this year due to money it will crush the game for the rest of my lifetime. The owners are all billionaires who have made millions from this game. Their franchises are all worth $1+ billion. I hope they realize how muc...

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

Totally agree with Mike's first paragraph! As for the rest, while I have become more pessimistic as time goes by, if this country could get the testing to a much higher level than there could be a chance to have a partial season. Trying not to be political here, but it's baffling to me how this is n...

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

There simply must be sufficient testing for there to be an MLB season of some kind. Right now it sounds like it's the Arizona plan or bust. I, too, vacillate between optimism and pessimism as to whether it can be done with so many factors that would need to be addressed. For example, one point Trout...

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

It is completely unrealistic to expect NFBC to cancel the hundreds of drafts that have been completed and refund our money. I daresay the vast majority of us don't want them in jeopardy of going out of business. And I, for one, have zero interest in redrafting my teams. And any number of teams get d...

Re: Slow pokes and Draft Champion Leagues

I thought teams that ran out the clock more than once were put on auto. Is that not the case? I'm currently in a cutline that has made 64 picks in 54 hours. Several owners just don't seem to be much interested:(

Re: Spring Training Can't Come Soon Enough

The real temperature was -26 at 7 am CT today. That's insanity. The wind has died down some today, so the wind chill is only around -40 right now and we should hit a high of -4 late this afternoon. We finally get above 0 tomorrow. Whoopee!!! Greg, I heard this on some news I was listening to and im...

Re: Simple Rules for Pitchers / Mid Week Moves

Gb, that's what they are saying. As long as 93% is not affected or is fine with the status quo, few will care about the 7%, right or wrong. I see Doughboys point about trying to avoid in-game management, even though in my opinion there would be no clear edge. However, in game management will open up...

Re: Simple Rules for Pitchers / Mid Week Moves

Another situation... Manaea throws three innings. Oakland is ahead 6-0 Manaea is removed because of blisters. Petit is warming in the bullpen. His owners in DC's remove pitchers from the starting lineup to put in Petit for a probable Win. It's just not our game. You are bordering on extreme rarity ...

We have Ivan Nola and Fernando Rodney on our roster. We decide to bench Rodney. Then, Tuesday night, Minnesota has a three run lead and we know Rodney will be entering the game. He hasn't thrown a pitch, yet we can put him in the game for Nola, since it is an ideal situation and he has not thrown a...

Re: Simple Rules for Pitchers / Mid Week Moves

It would actually require a daily look at (in some cases, more than 40) teams. This is why you are not receiving much support here and why this hasn't caught on in the past. No rule will be changed unless supported by the masses. You may get some support if making the rule on a Mon-Fri basis like h...

I started playing this game last year and put a lot of time into it and it's worth it but any additional rule change that complicates things or is more time consuming will scare people away and that's not good for business.

Greg, Why can't this simple rule be implemented: Lock a player when the player plays, not when his team plays.With the technology nowadays, I don't think it's a big burden.

Re: Fantasy MVP

Not sure how it cannot be Dozier. Better overall numbers than Trumblo and at a middle infield position. Doz - great season but still we are talking about a 6-7th rounder producing 1st round value. He will definitely make the draft picks All Star shortlist. Villar is a 25th rounder who ended up seco...
