  1. Kris Bryant 2018 Outlook

    People writing him off?
  2. Thank you to everyone who has reached out so far! At the moment we are at capacity, but I will update this thread if any owners decide to back out before we start up.
  3. Hello everyone! For anyone looking for a free dynasty startup, I have 4 spots remaining in my new project. The league will be hosted on Yahoo and run through a Proboards forum, as we will not do a standard draft. It will be a full auction dynasty, with players being assigned contracts between 1-5 years and a rookie draft/UFA period/contract extension period every offseason. We will use a h2h points scoring system and 18 man rosters, and we will have 14 teams in the league. I have been commishing leagues now for over 10 years, and I have been running a baseball league nearly identical to what this will be for 6 years now, so the league will be stable. You will not have to worry about it flaming out after a season or the league having a poor quality of life. I know what I'm doing and this league will be a great league to be a part of. For any further questions or to view any further rules, please email me at adifazio27@gmail.com. That is your best shot at reaching me, as my activity on this website is not constant throughout the day. Thank you!
  4. 7/8 - GAME DAY THREAD

    It's actually getting kind of painful how poorly Aaron Judge is umpired.
  5. Shohei Ohtani 2018 Outlook

    We also have to remember that Ohtani will have somewhat of a say in this. He's made it very clear he wants and intends on continuing to hit and pitch. I'm not sure if they could even convince him to give up pitching entirely, outside of saying "Hey, you're done pitching and that's the way it is". But considering they probably don't want to strain their relationship with him, I doubt that's the route that is taken.
  6. Derrius Guice 2018 Season Outlook

    Just based off this list and my early observations, I would take Guice before all of the RBs listed. I wouldn't make any arguments if anyone wanted to take Howard before Guice, but just my personal preference I prefer Derrius. I also think Mixon is close, but the rest I wouldn't have to think twice about passing on for Guice.
  7. 2018 NBA Offseason and Free Agency Thread

    Sure, he could've negotiated with any team, but I think the point of Golden State is that it does the most of maximizing/boosting his value for next season. Nothing quite stands out to opposing front offices like a dominant playoff run or showing in the NBA finals. Then he adds "championship experience" to his resume. Plus, we're also not considering that if Draymond and Klay sign elsewhere next offseason, Boogie could always resign for much more in Golden State next season and continue their run. All around, it seems like a very good move for Cousins, and the ideal landing spot for taking less money.
  8. 2018 NBA Offseason and Free Agency Thread

    One thing to remember is this is a one year deal. Nothing is keeping him from taking a small salary next season. So this year he gets to: 1. Sit out until healthy without worry that it hurts his team's chances 2. Jump into game action for the second half of the season fully rested and healthy onto the best team in the NBA already 3. Dominate the second half and playoff run 4. Most likely win a ring 5. Cash in in free agency next season If you ask me, this was a genius move on Cousins' part.
  9. Greg Bird 2018 Outlook

    Yeah, at the moment I have Whit Merrifield at 1B (it's been a rough year there) and basically float a rotating doughnut fetcher in the IF slot until Paul DeJong gets back. Obviously 2 bombs from Bird are encouraging, but I'm certainly waiting for more proof before slotting him back in every day.
  10. Greg Bird 2018 Outlook

    Smh now I guess I have to put him back in the lineup
  11. Wait, this Axe Elf guy is still parading around here like an expert even after his disastrous "Allen Robinson is going 1600/16" from 2016? Lololol
  12. Robbie Ray 2018 Outlook

    My staff is depleted with injuries, so I basically have no choice but to throw him tonight. The matchup is almost as friendly as it can get. Expecting some rust, but an overall decent line that won't hurt: 5.1, 1ER, 2BB, 7k
  13. Wil Myers 2018 Outlook

    You seem pretty deadset on hating Myers this season. You could always just drop him and stop wasting everyone's time.
  14. Vent & Rant Thread 2018

    For anyone feeling down on themselves, I just wanted to come here for a minute and share my pitching staff struggles with you. Despite my efforts this season, I have not been able to maintain anything even close to a below average pitching staff. I also play in dynasty, where I do not have the option to either stream pitchers on a matchup basis or add and drop freely. Everything is done via contracts and budgets. If you want to add a player, you either need to make a trade or outbid the rest of the league on a guy and be forced to pay AT LEAST the minimum salary for a full season. With that said, my pitching staff is as follows: Healthy: ERod, Alex Wood, Reynaldo Lopez Hurt or sent down: Carrasco, Darvish, Robbie Ray, Shohei Ohtani, Fernando Romero, Caleb Smith, Jake Faria I signed Daniel Mengden earlier in the year, and after I signed him he imploded so bad I just ate his salary and banished him to the shadow realm. Needless to say, it has not been a fun June.
  15. Commissioner's Corner - 2018 Edition

    What's up everyone! I wasn't sure where to post this, but this seemed like the closest spot. I'm looking for some help with the LM note on my ESPN fantasy league. We're going to a slightly custom standing system this year, and I wanted to create a standings section to display our own on the league homepage. I looked into making HTML tables, but it doesn't seem to load into the LM note. Anyone have any suggestions on how I can go about this?
