I'm sorry if you got the impression I was offended, I certainly didn't know that I was haha. Just adding my 2 cents. Like I said, everyone is entitled to post whatever they want, as long as the mods allow it. 

Then why comment to the contrary?

You and the other dude. The issue isn’t with Larocco. 

I do think in today's society, disagreement and offense have been meshed into one. I believe one can disagree with another and not be offended. Even you, I disagree with your assessment of my emotions, but I'm not offended by your assessment. I appreciate that you have your viewpoint.   But, you can have the last word if you want. This thread would probably be better served if the discussions were geared towards fantasy baseball venting and ranting, so I'll see myself out.

Nah. This isn’t new. 
 

and more it had to do with assuming Laracco was offended and that somehow pointed towards some nefarious intent on his part when folks were upset he was using the sub as intended. I’d point more to those folks being “offended” than Laracco.

Checked my lineup 15 minutes before games started this morning and Sandy Alcantara was not listed as a starter on Yahoo.  I checked my stats once the games got started and surprise!  he had that green check mark but the game was locked just into the 1st inning.  Good job Yahoo.  (I know not to rely on Yahoo but come on, I can't check mlb.com every day for every SP matchup).

It’s your own fault for relying on YAHOO

🤣🤣🤣

and why can’t you check MLB.com for accurate info on who is starting on the mound, are you not allowed to?

It's not that I can't.  It's that you'd think a platform who hosts thousands of leagues could hire people to stay on top something like that.  No I don't want to check mlb.com 7 days a week for 6 months straight to make sure Yahoo lineups are correct, that seems a bit excessive unless you are playing for thousands of dollars or something.

Fantrax also missed it which was surprising as they’re generally reliable

They never have, and they never will..bottom line

Trade deadline put the final nail in the coffin for the NL only team this season.

Lost Rizzo and Schwarber. Braves deals for outfielders likely ends the playing time for Heredia. Giants getting Bryant, takes away some starts for Austin Slater.  Add that to the 8 guys already on the roster but injured. Plus Trevor Bauer.

Inter league trades used to be not as common, at least in my opinion. Maybe a couple a season, that in only leagues it wasn't a huge deal. With the number of trades this year at the deadline, these real life trades will probably have a big effect on fantasy leagues that are mono league.  

Anybody have good league rules in mono leagues to help offset lost players?

1)Carrying a second catcher to make up for some counting stats.

2) having both catchers on the EXACT same rest schedule so that one never plays when the other one doesn't.

3) the one good game a month they have is on the bench because the you carefully selected to 0-5 one to start instead.

You went wrong with step 1.

Never had a draft go this poorly but still maintain a 10-4-2 H2H redraft record this season.

Drafted:
deGrom
Glasnow
Rendon
Conforto

Lesser but still misses
Grisham
Hendricks

Generally this is handled 2 ways; you can allow the teams to keep the player who is traded intraleague and keep the stats. I generally dislike this option in roto for a variety of reasons, but in H2H leagues its not a bad rule. Since only leagues usually have an auction process for these players coming over, this is a time that top half managers need to make deals with the other teams lower in the standings to position themselves for next year, and give up some pick/keeper value to balance it. 

Roto leagues often reward FAAB compensation for lost players to injury and trade, but when they happen at the deadline, the FAAB isn't as valuable if you receive it until after the initial FAAB lottery, so there really isn't a great solution there. Its just part of the game, unfortunately. Fun fact-every MLB team made at least 1 trade at this year's deadline. 

Also fun fact-Stephen Strasburg is still 52% owned in Yahoo!, exposing a real hard truth about our game: at this point in the season, about half the field has lost interest in their league. If you drafted Strasburg you were probably set up for a bad year, but the accumulation of injuries, length of the season, etc., this is always an issue, even though mobile apps are making it easier for managers to set rosters, replace players, etc.

Just a quick tip of the cap to Micheal " Mendoza Line" Conforto.  Has just enough potential, draft capital, lineup spot, pending free agency, for me to hold on. And somehow times his "homerun of the month" so perfectly that it follows an 0-20 where he's benched.

Oh, and he'll probably get a $100 mil + contract.
