  1. Tomorrow ain't happening, Rogers is starting, neither is Sunday... Lopez. Thompson gets a well deserved break through the break. Let's hope he returns fully healthy thereafter. That staff is a lot better than expected, could be primed for a nice 2nd half run..
  2. For smaller leagues, say 10 teams, is the difference between 1st pick and the 6th enough to keep teams active? If yes, then one idea is to reward the consolation winner with the top pick, 2nd consolation place with the 2nd pick etc.... It helps keep those out of the title chase active, while penalizing those who choose to tank( most will stay active with that carrot in front of them). If some still choose to tank, that's fine too, they won't get those coveted top picks. But again, league size and format dictate whether or not that this is a deterrent for tanking.. I know it works for 12
  3. Let's be clear here, only Bonds knows when he started to cheat. Curious, why did you omit his first 4 seasons in pitt? He ave. 21 hrs during that span, with ba's of: .223, 261, .283, and .248.. Could he have started after those first 4 seasons? I mean, his numbers jumped after those first 4, so it is possible, whether you want to believe it or not, it is possible... lets not cherry pick since NO ONE outside of Bonds knows when he started. In essence, this thread is full of, I believe this, or, I believe that, but no one is right or wrong, it's a personal belief, you either bel
  4. Seeing as they're an AL team, they wanted to bring up an arm that they likely won't use...thankfully the AL has the DH so Soler has a place to hit, oh wait...🤣
  5. Interesting thread..people here are clamoring for the dh to protect pitchers so they don't have to hit or run right? just pitch..what about the come backers? They cause injuries to pitchers too, or even the simple act of fielding their position, getting to 1st base to cover, that causes injuries too, or collisions with the runners while covering a base... if the goal is for pitchers to just pitch so theres less chance for injuries, give them the batting practice screen so theres no chance for them to get injured due to come backers, and have a player with a glove standing next to the pitcher i

  7. Was going to draft Lamet, but had to remind myself that I stopped believing in Santa Claus over 5 decades ago...
  8. The bigger issue will be for those teams that made claims, but have Gurriel jr, or others that I'm not aware of, coming off the IL this morning... I put in claims with empty slots, now he's active..I have a feeling that yahoo is going to screw some due to this issue..such a great site cough, cough....can't believe there are soo many that pimp that site as being one of the best for fantasy...it SUCKS.. It was designed for kindergartners...player elig is a joke, anyone can gain elig anywhere, all they have to do is pass by a position and presto, elig for life....Every year there's som
  9. What exactly had Lament done that Severino hasn't? Just look at both of their player pages, if anything, Lament hasn't done squat, last season: sure, 69ip with a nice era, but his other 2 seasons that he played were partial seasonshttps://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/10703/ AND, Severino is 2 yrs younger, has been in the league with a track record: https://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/9879/
  10. Bump.......League is in it's 8th season with a great group, so we're in it for the long haul.
  11. Can also DM me if any questions. Thanks again Mike
  12. League going into our 8th season on yahoo. We use proboards for minor rosters of 20 prospects and for all off-season transactions. Active, fun league with 1 orphaned team Owner faded us and we're in the first round FYPD and it's your pick. Short list, Team has: Eloy, Seager, Moncada, Cole, Bieber, prospects: Lux, Adell, Gore, Hunter Green, Royce Lewis.....

  13. Hope this turns out ok for this kid, there's been a lot of pressure on him to meet expectations. I remember when Greinke dealt with the same issues after he was drafted in '02. He took 2 years off to gather himself.
  14. It's a dynasty, you don't look at the snap shot, you look at the portrait...Tucker is the long term choice..
  15. If it's daily, send me the link and I'll give it a look..Bassinnpoker@gmail.com
  16. I live waaayyy out in the boonies in a Marina on a houseboat, and do you know who was making deliveries on July 4th and 5th? UPS was....hmmmmmm, I'm getting the feel that the owners are going to get the 48 game season that they wanted after all. These delays on tests are going to play right into their hands, great hiring job there on the delivery teams Manfred, just as instructed...unforeseen my 4th point of contact....
  17. He was out of options and the A's needed to clear a 40 man roster spot for 17 yr old SS phenom Puason. Without the trade, he'd have been put on waivers, and most likely claimed, this way, they at least got something for him. He still has upside, speed with a decent hit tool, but he just didn't fit in the A's future, especially with Laureano manning CF now, which is where Mateo might end up..
  18. Thanks for link, but I'm going to pass on this one.. best wishes..
  19. If it's still open: bassinnpoker@gmail.com..
  20. Do you have a link to view the team and league settings?
  21. Not implying that it applies with Pearson, but it's worth noting that only players on the 60 man lists are elig to trade.
  22. Here in Ca, we've had an uptick in cases too, but the short season won't start for another month, a lot can, and will happen in the next 2 months leading into September... I'm saying if there is baseball, there will be fans come September in the stands...if there is no baseball, it's all moot anyway....
  23. The biggest aspect of the owners' negotiations was, ZERO gate receipts, zero.. there will be fans in the stands before September 1st, and the owners knew this..The union caved to public pressure from the owners' tactics of leaking the information they leaked' I agree with Brock, the fans got played, we turned on the players thinking they were the greedy side, but we get baseball, which is what everyone wanted, that's the piece of candy to quiet us..meanwhile, the owners will be laughing all the way to the bank once stadium open. They won't be full, but 25-30% is a huge win for the owners,
