Re: Win $30,000 In The 2021 NFBC Draft Champions

Is rule 9d only for minor league players who didn’t play in the majors at all in 2019 and 2020? EDIT: I think you need to change 2020 to 2021 in that rule. Yes. There were no minor league stats in 2020, so for a minor-leaguer who didn't see time in the majors in 2020 we'll look at his most games pl...

Re: Looking For Feedback On 2021 Cutline Championship

Thanks again for all of the great feedback.

The playoff "cutline" format is needed in baseball and so it will return in 202...

Re: Looking For Feedback On 2021 Cutline Championship

Every draft starts with your draft position and then you plan your strategy from there. Sometimes you get a draft spot you like and sometimes you don't, but you always make the best of it, right? It's not always about the draft that makes a winning team, but it certainly helps to build a solid found...
