#5298333 Hassan Whiteside 2014-2015 Season Outlook

Posted by K50K on 25 January 2015 - 03:52 PM

Aside from my son, that cheerleader I used to bang in college, and I guess my wife, Whiteside is the best thing that's ever happened to me.

#5401909 Cool Story Bro 2015 Edition

Posted by The Czar on 01 April 2015 - 06:00 PM

With the money I won in my leagues last year I got my old man and my brother playoff tickets to game 5 of the NLCS where Ishikawa hit the game winning homerun.

 

I thought my Dad was going to cry.  It was his first playoff game.

 

One of my favorite stories (probably for the rest of my life)...thought it was pretty cool.

#4571668 POSTING RULES & HELPFUL LINKS - BASEBALL FORUMS 2008 - PRESENT

Posted by The Harsh on 26 May 2014 - 12:36 AM

With baseball season in full swing, and an ever growing Forum population, we'd like to remind the posters that the Main Forum (Fantasy Baseball Talk) is for discussion for general purposes. This means team-specific issues, rosterbating, cool-story-bro moments - while they mean a lot to the poster posting - they don't fit the bill. There are threads for celebration, venting, cool-story-bro posts - and there is a separate Forum to post roster or team/league-specific issues - the Bench Coach (BC) Help Forum.

As RW Forums posting volume has increased, so has the number of these types of posts. While it's understandable if it's happened unintentionally, it's also becoming clear Fantasy Baseball Talk is becoming overrun with BC posts, and the other aforementioned posts which are hijacking player discussion. Again, if it's someone learning for the first time, or if it's done inadvertently, we get that - but too many veterans are contributing to the problem. We cannot stress this enough: this problem tends to grow exponentially because too many people see others doing it and think it's okay, but this only worsens the issue. Lead by example and use the appropriate threads!

Fantasy Baseball Talk is to help promote general fantasy discussion that's usable for the entire community. To keep this focus, for those who can't stop - harsher penalties, including temporary disabling of posting privileges (or longer in the case of repeat offenders following prior penalties) will be applied. Hopefully, this won't be necessary - but as all posters agree to abide by the CoC and Posting Rules when they join, notice that BC posting will need to be done in the BC Forum is clearly necessary.

Given that the rules are well-known to returning members, we trust this reminder will help returning members keep Main Forum discussion for the community at large and away from AC/team content, and help new members avoid future problems as well.

Also, for the newest members:

PROBATIONARY MEMBERS - for those of you who have just joined, welcome! While you are in a probationary status, please note two important differences from other members. First, you can't send PM's or receive PM's until you move up to regular member (10+ posts). Secondly, as of 2013, Probationary Members can reply to existing threads, but can't create new threads in the following Forums:

Main Baseball Forum (Fantasy Baseball Talk)
MILB Baseball Forum (MILB Forum)

Main Football Forum (Fantasy Football Talk)
IDP Football Forum (IDP Forum)
Main Basketball Forum (Fantasy Basketball Talk)

Please note that probationary members can still create threads in the other Forums, and can reply to existing threads in the above Forums. This will allow probationary members to get their feet wet in the Main Forums, and also help new members avoid posting Assistant Coach / Bench Coach threads in the wrong Forum.

As always, take a moment to read the RW Baseball Forum Posting Rules, RW Football Forum Posting Guidelines and RW Basketball Forum Posting Guidelines as this will cover all the areas of posting for RW members. Welcome aboard!

#4613892 RIP Tony Gwynn

Posted by Golden Spikes on 16 June 2014 - 02:13 PM

my personal Tony story from the UTsandiego forum discussion on his passing

My fondest moment on a personal level of Tony Gwynn would have to have come in 1993.

I was playing JUCO at Grossmont, and was working for the San Diego School of Baseball at the time as an assistant (shag balls, set up, clean up, basically do whatever they ask). One afternoon after one of the hitting clinics was over, there were 2 of us assistants hanging around getting things cleaned up. Tony stayed late to sign autographs for every kid in attendance (well over 1000). I had spoken quite a bit to Tony over the year, he knew me, he addressed me by name, he never made me feel like just a random person, anyways as he was walking out one day, he asked me how my season was going. I was doing pretty good, and had been working on taking the ball the other way (as a lefty) so I brought up my approach to him.

He put down his stuff and went into the cage with me, asking me to show him rather than tell him. For about 15 mins he sat and watched as I attempted to replicate his 5.5 approach. I was a pretty good "slappy" type hitter, your prototypical 80's 90's style no 2 hitter. Anyways he didnt say anything for 15 mins, which I thought was odd. I always was used to a mouth in my ear every time I hit. From my Dad, to my high school coach, up to Eddie Olsen at GC.

After I was done he took a few swings, and showed me a couple tips. It was amazing. When he hit in the cage, he wasnt that 5.5 guy, and he explained to me that when he is at the plate his approach is always to hit it through the pitchers legs, cause there is nobody there to get you out. So while hitting he proceeded to hit 10 consecutive pitches right back through the hole in the net where the ball came out (roughly the size of a softball) I was in shock. He told me also that if you work on hitting the ball the other way in the cages, when you get in the game that pitch is going to be coming a little faster, and you are going to foul alot of pitches off, which made sense.

To wrap up, I thanked Tony and started about my cleanup, he said goodbye and was walking to his car, when I saw that 32-30 still leaned against the cage with a pair of brand new Franklin batting gloves on it (the ones he wore that day at the camp) I grabbed them and chased him to his car, saying Tony you forgot your stuff, to which he replied.

"Those aren't mine D."

That summer I played in a wood bat league and stupidly although successfully used Tony's bat to the tune of a .432 BA, but broke it during the last game of the season. I kept it in shards for a couple years, but after a few moves it disappeared.

I will always have that memory of Tony. What a man, what a hitter, what a human being

#4302629 Ryan Anderson 2013-2014 Season Outlook

Posted by Queequeg on 07 January 2014 - 12:46 PM

He's owned by my main rival in one of my leagues and I couldn't be any happier. It's the necessary evil in fantasy lol. I'm sorry for you guys in the rotoworld forums community though, you all get one big virtual hug from me > :)<


I'm not an Anderson owner, but this is the kind of remark you should keep to yourself.

#3764943 ROTOWORLD'S FOOTBALL FORUM'S POSTING GUIDELINES

Posted by Tarheels_2433 on 11 September 2013 - 07:00 PM

With football season in full swing, and an ever growing Forum population, we'd like to remind the posters that the Main Forum is for posting on discussion for general purposes. This means team-specific issues, rosterbating, cool-story-bro moments - while they mean a lot to the poster posting - they don't fit the bill. There are threads for celebration, venting, cool-story-bro posts - and there is a separate Forum to post roster or team/league-specific issues - the Assistant Coach (AC) Forum.

As RW Forums posting volume has increased, so has the # of these types of posts. While it's understandable if it's happened unintentionally - it's also becoming clear the Main Forum is becoming overrun with AC posts, and the above types of posts which are hijacking player discussion. Again, if it's someone learning for the first time, or inadvertent, we get that - but too many veterans are contributing to the problem. We cannot stress this enough, this problem tends to grow exponentially because too many people see others doing it and think it's okay, but this only worsens the issue.
