Re: Let's Talk About 2013 NFBC Live Drafts

I would assume MLB will open with a night game Wed., April 3 and Opening Day Thursday, April 4. Assuming that is the case, I would prefer drafting in Chicago the Friday and Saturday of Easter weekend. Not sure how others feel, but Easter is a Sunday, the Friday & Saturday before was never a huge dea...

Re: STATS LLC and Harper

Great article. Thanks for sharing. Sure is going to be fun watching these young guys (Harper, Trout, &Stanton) play and see what kind of numbers they can put up. I am quite surprised by how humble and respectful Harper has been. For some reason, I had this media-fueled perception of this brash, arro...

Mike Trout

The more I watch this kid play, the more I think we may be watching a truly great, once-in-a-life time player. I always enjoy watching players progress from the time they are drafted to their rise through the minor leagues, through the inevitable Baseball America cover and hype, and eventually to th...

Did not even notice...too busy driving around various bus stops and going to the mall making fun of boys wearing skinny jeans.

I echo Kobe's sentiments, "Glad I'm not growing up in this generation."

Re: Set Lineup Change

While we are handing out compliments, I play in leagues on All Star, On Roto and CBS -- and the free agent system here is in a class by itself, BLOWS THE OTHERS AWAY. Totally Agree. Being able to "copy" Add/Drops is a god-send. One very little, very minor thing to change would be when searching for...

Yes, put a moratorium on injury posts, but not on any posts that begin with, "Back in the day....," (with a who-gives-a-shit throw in for further effect) to be followed by a crumdgeonly rant. I, for one, particularly enjoy "back-in-the-day" rants. Back in the day, boys did not wear jeans tighter tha...

Re: fAAB Week 9

Went all in on the biggin', Matthew Adams. Liked the scouting reports on him, tremendous power, good contact for power hitter, compact stroke but doesn't walk a lot. Worried about how playing time shakes out when Allen Craig comes back, but as a Berkman owner on two teams and in need of power, it wa...

Nice observation. Unfortunately a lot of wasted mid-round draft picks and a lot of wasted FAAB dollars lay in the wake of tonight's closer tranquility.

Re: Monday Injury Kick to the Jimmy

Bourjos will get his fair share of time again. There are plenty of AB's to divvy up between Him, Morales and Trumbo. Right now Trumbo has the corner OF spots, 1B to rest Puljos, 3B and DH spots for AB's. Morales may be the odd man out for less AB's. There will be a lot of owners trying to get Bourj...

Thank you, Atlas. Nicely explained. I still get confused by the requirements for a Save situation. Guess thats what happens when you have an essentially made up statistic, by a sportswriter no less.

if he keeps trotting to 1st before the pitch is called- he will be in for a lot more of this. Totally agree. The little tatt'ed up hothead was running 10 feet up the line before the umpire had a chance to even make the call. You're a rooke, show some respect. If he stays in the box until the umpire...

Re: Cardinals - 20 Games after Pujols

The Cardinals organization probably took a look at Pujols dropping more than 200 points off his OPS over the last 4 years,combined that with approaching age 32 season and the dollars and length of contract needed to keep him and wisely let him go to the Angels. King Albert went over 100 AB's in a s...
