  1. Yeah it's not the app. It's the computer/browser. I finally figured out that the login credentials were expired, BUT what's weird is that it used to prompt me to relogin, not to "add an account." Still weird. Not
  2. Weird Yahoo glitch in Fantasy Baseball, anyone have this glitch? I go to add a player and instead it takes me to the "add an account" page. It's happened more than once.
  3. If you make the changes for the next few days all on one day, like today. Then eventually the computer realizes you want those guys in that lineup for the foreseeable future. Don't make the changes on Monday, then Tuesday, then Wed. Make all the changes for the week. BUT if you add/drop a player via waivers/FA it will screw this up and you'll have to do it again.
  4. #2 The post you are referring to talks about mindset, mostly about conformity. You keep posting these really long paragraphs about Castro and CK's girlfriend "who hates America" and that's clearly and easily political and it keeps throwing fire on this discussion. I want you to just let it go. And if you can't let it go I and the other mods will just suspend you and give you some time to think about it. 

  5. First. Do not call out the mods publically that will get you a suspension quick. If you have a problem with a mod's decision message any of us.

      KK, me too, I'm putting my 10 YO daughter to bed.


      His statement is political because he is taking sides. If his post stands, there should be room for a counter argument.


      Anyway, I gotta put Frozen DVD on for a few mins while she falls asleep.

      I've looked through your posting history before and you have a ton of good informative posts. I'm guessing (correct me if I'm wrong) you are posting the Castro and GF stuff to prove a point. The problem is that pretty much anytime someone brings up Castro and what he's done in the past it's clearly political talk. The post that the other poster made may seem political because he is taking sides but the subject of his post is far less of an obvious political post. Now you can disagree with me, but here is what I would like you to do next time. 


      The next time you see a political post just report it to the mods. That way multiple mods will check it out. We usually discuss it and try and make a fair decision. Please remember that none of us are paid and we are dads and family members just like you, who love sports and talking about sports. Please try and give us the benefit of the doubt, I've never heard a mod take a political side in the background, they are just trying to keep politics and other COC stuff out of the threads the best they can. We locked the thread for now so you won't see anyone posting something that would warrant a reply. 


      My son is too old for me to have experience the Frozen movie thing. Hope it bears up to repeated watching.

      You did the right thing. Lock the thread until he gets signed by a team. Otherwise, it's just political back and forth. If he signs with a team, then there is something to talk about. Right, now, he's irrelevant and nothing more needs to be said in these forums about him.


      On Frozen, it's candy for kids. Once they have seen it, just the music puts them to sleep. :)

    I'm just going to throw out a few pie in the sky comps. Not saying he's going to be these guys, but if things work out: Daniel Murphy (but sub 10 SBs) The good/healthy version of Justin Turner The good version of Eric Hosmer- the sub 10 SB version DJ LeMahieu with more pop but fewer SBs
  7. Hey TC84. 


    I hid you last post in the closer forum because it really belongs in the Bench Coach Forum. If you want my two cents on your question, yeah I'd drop Oh, I'd wait to drop Johnson until I hear a more specific rumor or two from their beat writers. 

    1. TC84


      No problem. Thanks

    Let me introduce you to the most polished bat in college baseball this year. He flew under the radar because he's not hitting a ton of HRs AND his elbow as so injured he didn't play in the field his junior (2017) season. But that didn't stop him from hitting .442 with a .567 OBP this past season. He won the 2017 NCAA batting crown. The Brewers thought enough of him to make him their 1st round draft pick. Well he's not disappointing anyone post draft. Since joining the Brewers minor system here are his stats in 107 ABs: AVG: .421 OBP .466 OPS 1.195 They've quickly promoted him from rookie ball to A ball and he's the kinda kid who if he does well in AA next year I can see him skipping AAA. His name has not shown up in trade talks even though the Brewers are desperate for help and I don't think you'll see him get traded away. Even though he was a college junior he's only 20 years old. If you haven't scooped him up in dynasty or deep keeper leagues- you should.
  9. Lonzo Ball 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Good call. Without any hard data Ball seems about the same speed as Miller. I'm going to be really fascinated to watch how Ball handles the speed of NBA point guards looking to burn him nightly. The Lakers might want to invest in a backup center who specializes in protecting the rim. But with Ball's nose for the ball and how quick he makes decisions, if Andre Miller's slowish speed can play 10+ years in the NBA so can Ball. PS Andre Miller is only 6'2"
  10. Kyle Kuzma 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Per an article on " “I’ve been working since the end of the season to improve my shooting ability,” Kuzma said. “It’s all about getting reps and being in the gym.” Kuzma has focused more than just on taking plenty of shots in his workouts. That work helped him improve his 3-point shooting at the University of Utah as a sophomore (25.5%) to a junior (31.2%). Kuzma also became mindful he would have to tinker with his approach when accounting for the distance in the 3-point line from the basket in college basketball (19 feet, nine inches) and in the NBA (23 feet, nine inches). “I have to get my legs into it,” Kuzma said. “The college 3, you can shoot like it’s a free throw. But it being that deep, I have to really focus on getting my legs into it and the mechanics in my shot. By doing so, I’m more efficient and effective.”" Maybe he has more time since he's not a student. Maybe he realizes that shooting the 3 is how he's going to get playing time in the NBA. I'd take a super late round flyer on him, or just keep an eye on him the first two weeks. Remember, it was summer league.
  11. Tom Brady 2017 Outlook

    Whatever the league expects the Patriots do they will do something else. When the league finally figures out an answer to whatever the Patriots are doing Belichick will either double down and do it more or find some unexpected plan of attack. I really enjoy when I get to take that extra RB or WR and snag Brady as the 3rd-5th QB off the board. There is no one I feel safer about making sure my team is in the position to win every week.
  12. Juiced Ball Hypothesis

    It's a great read if you haven't read it. I like how it goes after some of the other theories and pokes holes in most of them as being the main culprit for the increasing HR rate. I also wonder if there is an additional factor, that is more difficult to measure, in how it affects a pitcher's ability to make the ball do what they want it to do.
  13. Fangraphs. Throw them a few bones as thanks while you are there. Go to your login name and pick "custom teams."
  14. I could be wrong, but it looks like you ranked Cole 22 in your SP ranks, but you have him as the SP30 in your overall 250 ranks. If this is accurate, what caused the 8 spot drop? Was it doubt in Cole or optimism in the SPs who jumped Cole? @taobball
  15. 1. Did you do a rankings for 2016? I'd love to look back at it. 2. Next time put the year (2017) in the title so if you do this next year it will be easier to search for last year's version. 3. Thanks for doing this.
