Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

No one was drafting potential NL DH’s in earlier drafts. We were all on the same playing field. And don’t sweat the Main Event Greg. Everyone I know is going to pile entries into it once this gets figured out. I’m more worried about the MLB Players Association being rational, but let’s remain optimi...

Re: MLB Season Postponed?

I want to draft as much as anyone else. This situation sucks. Please just take into consideration that if we draft this weekend and the season gets postponed to a later date, how will things be handled ahead of time. Will we scrap the drafts we do this weekend and redraft when we know the season wil...

Re: MLB Season Postponed?

MLB is going to postpone the start of the season. They will have no choice now that the NBA and NHL have done so. If a single player gets the Coronavirus, they would stop the season on the spot anyway. This is a game that has tons of fan interaction with autographs and pictures before games. Having ...

Re: Worst Rule Change Ever

Might as well start with the bases loaded and one out. It will be sac bunt, intentional walk, intentional walk, pitching change. For a game that keeps trying to speed things up, this rule makes no sense at all.

Re: How Can We Make Your Sundays & FAAB Easier For You?

I have a bunch of friends that play Yahoo or ESPN baseball leagues every year and over the years I have spoken to all of them about trying the NFBC, but they all thought it was too expensive, even at $350. No facts to back this up, but I think that after a dozen years, the market for people willing ...

Re: How Can We Make Your Sundays & FAAB Easier For You?

Create two separate sign up lists for different leagues:
One having the current Sunday FAAB deadline, and a second one for Monday afternoon/evening.
I would definitely play in more leagues if I had the weekends free.

Nice job jumping so quickly to the rescue here Scott. Though I have to admit to feeling a bit of disappointment. As once I heard you would be in Vegas for the NFBC, I had you pegged for the last spot in the Platinum. :( All is not lost however! MtM, your partner from last year's Platinum is free th...

Re: And the hits just keep on coming....

It's not about whining and yahoo leagues. My request is to look at how we are allowed to respond to all these injuries by way of roster management. I shouldn't have to blow up my team in week 3 because my injury run came this early in the season.

Re: And the hits just keep on coming....

I'm sorry but the answer can't be "well injuries strike every year and every team has to deal with them." Or "this is the way the game is intended to be played." Depending on when the injuries occur and how many each team sustains, owners are left having to cut players they need, pass on adding piec...

Re: And the hits just keep on coming....

This has gotten ridiculous. There has to be a legitimate discussion next year about DL spots, extra bench slots, extra FAAB....something.....that allows for dealing with all these injuries that you have no control over.

Count me in for the way KJ runs his contract league bidding process. It's the fairest system out there for draft spots. If Greg had allowed Tyrer's offer to bid on his number one pick, we were prepared to give him the $2K he wanted for it. Trout is worth a lot, but as someone who sat at the back of...

See but that's where you're wrong Joe. In this game, there's two ways to win. Finish on top, which is the game we all know. Or finish with the best "cost to finish ratio"...thus being named MOY (Manager of the Year). Cost consciousness is the key there. Some play the first game only, some the secon...
