Re: NL and AL Only Auction Leagues - Las Vegas

I talked with Brian Ogan, who loves this format and really wishes he could come to Las Vegas. The good doctor can't make it this year, but I said I'd work with him to still get involved. If needed, he's ready on standby with a proxy. I'll add him here to show everyone that we are closer than expect...

Re: NFBC In NL & AL LABR Auctions: Saturday and Sunday

Childs with the buy of the draft. $25 for Bauer!!! Mind blowing! I literally (using the word correctly) closed the XM app when Arenado went for more than Bauer. It's just Childs (and a handful of other good players) abusing the other half of the league who are there to showcase their media presence...

Re: Innings Minimum

If someone is crazy enough to think they can "game the system" by getting penalized with 9.00 era and 3.00 whip to fill up the missed innings rather than plugging in 2-start Rockies off the waiver wire ... I will take those guys on all day long, the more you can find the better. :lol:

Re: Innings Minimum

The fairest way to deal with missed minimums is neither of the above as I've argued before. Penalize the offender to the extent they missed the minimum and adjust their team stats and standings accordingly. If you miss by one inning you should not lose 10 points in standings since plugging in the w...

Re: NL and AL Only Auction Leagues - Las Vegas

Same here, Dave. And I'll add for those who might not normally play in these leagues, you get deep into MLB rosters, much like a DC. With so many players doing 50-round DCs now, here's a chance to put that research into action in a way that you can't do in a 15-team mixed league. These leagues reall...

Re: Looking For Feedback On 2021 Cutline Championship

Why not a DC/Cutline hybrid? You draft 50 players with no FAAB and the scoring is cutline-style. ...or, separately, you use the DC draft and can leverage the same team/league for a cutline? Probably wouldn't work. With DCs you end up with a lot of injured players but at least you're playing 23 agai...

Re: Looking For Feedback On 2021 Cutline Championship

1) I preferred the no-playoff format this year. 2) If you dump the playoffs the season should continue deeper into the season, for sure. 3) If the season is extended another FAAB or two may be needed. 4) Move the first FAAB to the last day of cutline drafts to accommodate early drafters. 5) To make...
