Here's to this thread being much shorter and less relevant than the 2020 threads.

Fred Fenster, Todd Hockney, Roger "Verbal" Kint, Dean Keaton and Michael McManus. You know, the Usual ones

Weekly leagues, I just do not see how you can start any NYM or WAS is you have any other warm body to give you AB's

A lot of weekly leagues are 12 days for the first period.  It's just the Nationals that have covid?   Unless your week ends Sunday, not sure how you can sit the stud mets like Lindor, Conforto, Degrom, etc. If this is wrong, let me know.

As far as we know its just Nats. I dont play weekly leagues but I agree with you on this.

Fantrax, period is April 1 - April 4

 

Am I wrong for starting Walsh over Alonso?

Guys, they’re going to play in some capacity in the next few days. The key is how widespread this is and who has it.

If you're scoring period is 4 days, sit all mets and nats hitters sure.  Tough to sit degrom in case he does have a start, that's about it, I guess Scherzer too.

I’m not sitting Soto or Turner in this scenario.

Unless theyre the ones with Covid. The lack of information coming out is frustrating but understandable.

Question is would you take 3-4 games that are 100% to go off from players that are just good

 

Or risk using players that are great/studs for 2 games but might have a 50% or higher of playing ZERO games?

 

Gimme the sure thing!!

Using history as a guide, when they had positive covid tests, they cancelled entire series. They think another player has tested positive.

The information we have to go in is they called up a C, RP, OF, and a starter, I believe. I agree that we need more.

So multiple reporters just came out and said that they will start on Saturday if everything goes well 

 

That's a big if. Hopefully they do start Sat though

Nats beat reporter Mark Zuckerman just Tweeted that most of the players from the alternate camp (Possible replacements) were on the same charter with the Covid positive player. This explains the postponement most likely.

IDK how anybody in their right mind would play in weekly leagues. You’re just asking for frustration. COVID postponements can happen anytime. Playing in weekly leagues is not wise considering the state of this pandemic.

You can manually set merge first 2 periods though. Any good Commish does this.
