  1. It was four outings, 3.1 innings, 18 h/w, 16 runs (all earned). And that is a crusher for anyone who owned him. Outside of those, he gave up 7 er and 37 h/w in 47.1 innings. They all count, but if he can limit the blow-ups, there’s a lot of promise in that arm.
  2. Yeah, I agree that I wish Yahoo would make that adjustment. We’re not a dynasty, but in my keeper, I would add one NA keeper if they made that change. It only makes perfect sense...which is why Yahoo won’t do it. Lol!
  3. I wasn’t speaking to the offseason or to dynasties. My league has drafted and the guy I was responding to has drafted also, so I’m speaking to post-draft teams.
  4. But it shouldn’t. We have 30 rostered in my yahoo league, and DLs don’t count. Neither do NAs. With four DL and two NA, each team could technically carry 36 players.
  5. Same here. Been running a keeper league that’s in its 9th season, and the Ohtani deal is the biggest issue we’ve ever run across. And it wasn’t even that big to me.
  6. You can rack up SBs without draining other cats if you draft well and work your team smartly. Multiple times in my main keeper league I’ve finished in the top 2-3 of both HR and SB...which leads to strong finishes in R and RBI. Even this year, in that league I feel like I’ve pieced together a lineup that should finish top 2-3 in both...maybe even win both cats.
  7. Agreed. I never break first half and second half up by the ASB. I'm referring to April-June and July-Sept when discussing halves. Otherwise I'll just say "pre-ASB" and "post-ASB".
  8. It's a worthy gamble, but I'm less and less confident that Brasier will be given the job to open the season. I beginning to believe Barnes will have the first opportunity to run with it. We'll see soon enough.
  9. Good lord. I googled "What is Brazzers". So I live in a cave because I don't view that kind of stuff on my internet? LOL okay bud. If that's living in a cave, I'll happily do so.
  10. Part of me wants to google that to see what it is...the other part of me says I probably shouldn't. Lol.
  11. I played in a Fantrax league last year and wasn't enamored. It's great for customization and the support is great, but I really didn't like the interface at all.
  12. Even before the report about him being expected to be the starting 2B, I disagree that there's no reason to draft him. He's a guy who can play multiple positions, and he's a guy who was going to get ABs...starting 2B or not. Prior to this latest news, I wouldn't have drafted him as a starter, but imo he would have been a valuable bench bat because of his versatility.
  13. I am pretty happy about this info. I drafted Kike as one of my "Swiss army knife" players, hoping he'd grab 400ish ABs this season. To find out he's going to be a starting 2B is pretty cool. What kind of numbers should we expect from Hernandez if he get get 550 ABs this season? RR has him hitting 6th, so maybe a .250-25-75 with a few SBs. I'll take that on my bench.
  14. What steals will be there? He's stolen 36 bases as a professional in 2,115 PAs...and he's been caught 38 times. A .300 average with 8-10 HR and a handful of steals is not an "awesome MI" guy, imo. Maybe a decent MI in an NL only league...a passable MI in 14+ mixed leagues.
  15. I'm playing in a points league for the first time since the early 90s when I was a teenager. It's just a casual fun H2H league, but most of the guys have been playing in the same league for a few years...autodraft, redraft, no $$. I didn't realize how heavily weighted towards pitching the league is. I looked at my lineup and thought, "Daaaang! Nice infield!". Pitching wasn't good, but I figured I could make it work like I always do in roto leagues if I have a bad pitching draft. Then I noticed the league vets had loaded pitching staffs...then I noticed that they are carrying very few bats on their benches...then I looked at the draft results and saw mostly SPs going early...and then I looked at the scoring last year and saw that elite SPs are OVERWHELMINGLY valuable and important. And then I thought, "Well crap...I guess I'll suffer through this season and set my draft order next year." LOL...it's going to be a long year in that league. So I am looking for every sleeper SP I can find.
