  1. Best Pick: Woodruff (19th Rd) Worst: Severino (8th Rd), Posey (14th) Best add(s): Lynn, Giolito, Garver, Bichette? Worst drop(s): Danny Santana, E Escobar, Woodruff 🥺 ( These hurt to type out) Best Trade: B Lowe for Wheeler Worst trade- Thankfully all of the trades have worked out so far. Traded Bauer for Soto who hasn't really lit it up lately but Bauer has also been very inconsistent
  2. Last I read was he started a rehab assignment earlier this week and could be back by the weekend
  3. In my league format he is currently a top 10 hitter overall and a top 5 OF. The sb's are definitely a nice bonus so far
  4. I think Fantrax actually had Posey ranked higher- not 100% sure on that though. Haha he's 4 years old. Easier said than done. I actually named my team Brayden's Avengers after him and also because he loves Spider-man, Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, etc
  5. I had to step away from my computer during draft for a few minutes to help my son with something. Somehow I ended up with Posey on auto-draft with Grandal still on the board 🤬
  6. I am also wondering this as well. I have seen him mentioned as a potential sleeper this year on a few sites but looking at his career stats it doesn't look like he has much power or speed.
  7. Yeah anybody that has ever banged their funny bone ( basically where he got hit) on their desk/ night stand knows how much that hurts. Getting hit by a baseball traveling 90+ MPH is probably 100 times worse than that. If he got hit in the a** cheek or meaty part of the leg it would be different
  8. Thanks for everyone's input! Trade went through with no other objections. Even the other team involved in the trade said no hard feelings- It is just the risk of making a trade
  9. I told him I would give him Muncy for his worst player. I know Muncy has been slumping but he has 24 hrs and qualifies at multiple positions including 2B/3B and MI so it makes him quite valuable
  10. Trade etiquette question- I had sent an offer to another team with Springer/ Corbin going and I was receiving Stanton. I had sent this offer last weekend but the other owner sat on it for several days. He finally accepted the offer yesterday around 1:00 PM EST approx. 4 hours before Houston's game and Springer's injury. We have a 24 hour processing period on trades where other owners can vote to veto. One other league owner voted down the trade because he said " I am vetoing because I don't think he would have made that trade had he known Springer was going to be injured ( ya think?). When I made the offer no players were injured and when he accepted no players were injured so it was obviously made in good faith. I feel badly but there is no reason this trade shouldn't go through, right? If Stanton had gotten hurt later that night I wouldn't have expected other owners to veto. It's crappy luck but I have been on the other side of this many times and haven't said anything. Thoughts?
  11. He’s the 6th ranked hitter in my league so far for the entire season.
  12. Well with Synnegard getting a 2nd opinion on his finger I guess he is going to stay in the rotation at least for the short term
  13. With Ohtani's blister issues will Barria be getting the call up again?
  14. I think picking 4 QB's up is one thing. Picking them up and then dropping them the next day so they are on waivers ( and nobody can claim them) is another. I know many of the fantasy football leagues I have been in had rules preventing stuff like that
  15. I agree. it is one thing to pick up the best 1B on waivers to try to work out a trade with a desparate team needing a 1B ( if deadline has not passed) but this is way over the top cut-throat stuff. I wouldn't want to be in a league where teams do stuff like that
  16. Update- One of the teams complaining responded with the following when I asked him what position Taylor and Moncada was listed as in his 5 other Fantrax and 3 ESPN leagues. ( After I had posted my apology) "Taylor listed at 3B in all leagues. Moncada listed at 2B in all leagues. So you could see the confusion. Thank you to Joe for getting us all riled up about Taylor !!" Joe is the other owner that was complaining and seems to like to stir up drama
  17. Does anybody own Chris Taylor in a league where he is not listed/ eligible as a 3B All of the default position settings in Fantrax, ESPN, Yahoo and CBS have him listed as eligible at 3B as it was his primary position last season. However one of my fantrax leagues he is only listed at 2B/MI/OF. I think it is a computer glitch and I've been having the discussion in the Commish League Rules thread on the proper way to handle. Curious if anybody has seen Taylor not listed in 3B in their leagues
  18. Ok I took your advice and posted that I apologize if I should have been more transparent and reiterated that I will continue to make corrections to position eligibility for other teams' players as errors are brought to my attention Full disclosure we also have an argument in league because Moncada was originally only listed as 3B but in the last few days Fantrax changed his default position to 2b. The team that has Moncada wants to use him at MI and teams are complaining because he hasn't played 10 games yet. However our league rules state that Fantrax default position will also be accepted and for minor league players they will be eligible at the position that had most games in the minor leagues this season. Again pretty clear as Moncada has played over 80 games at 2B in minors this year. I think teams are getting killed with injuries ( one of the teams complaining just lost Kershaw, Strasburg and Bour) and are now looking for any reason to start a fight or argument
  19. All of the Fantrax Classic Draft leagues with the default position eligibility settings have Chris Taylor listed as 3B and then added eligibility during the season for 2B/OF/MI ( Our league uses same setting). If you drafted Taylor in Fantrax leagues before the season you would have had to draft him as a 3B. I am not sure why our league didn't update this for some reason. Weird errors with Fantrax in the past though in our specific league. I remember one year I think it was Eric Aybar - they had him still listed as a 2B even though he hadn't played a game at 2B for over 2 years
  20. It is games played. Every other fantrax league (which has the same position settings and rules) have Taylor listed at 3B. Obviously it is a computer glitch for our specific site. I have fixed position errors for players on other teams as I notice them or as they are called to my attention by the respective teams. Fantrax like other sites is not perfect as sometimes there are errors. Also the site keeps a log of all commissioner changes and can be set to email all teams of changes under team options. I am not trying to hide anything. I just didn't think it was necessary to ask permission to correct a site error. If people think I was wrong on that I will accept it but I certainly wasn't trying to cheat or anything
  21. Question for the folks on here: In one of my fantrax leagues where I am the commissioner I have Chris Taylor and have exclusively been using him as my 2B or MI. The other day I noticed that per our league rules he should also be listed as 3B eligible as that was his primary position played last season. For some reason he was only listed as 2b/MI/ OF/UT even though other Fantrax leagues, ESPN, CBS, etc all list him at 3B as Primary Position. Directly from our league rules on Fantrax;s site :20 games last season at a position or 10 games this season. Note: If a player does not qualify for any positions based on the above selections, he will qualify at the position(s) played most in the previous MLB season. If he did not play at all last season, then the default position(s) will be used. Last season Taylor played the most at 3B. No ambiguity here. Obviously it is a computer glitch on our league site. I used commissioner override to update his position status to include 3B like I have done in past for players on other teams in the instances where Fantrax had errors I now have a few teams in my league chirping that I was somehow cheating because I corrected the error and as commissioner "I should have asked permission first before I corrected the position eligibility" Note these are the same people that like to chirp on every other trade that doesn't involve them " that trade does not smell right" I mean it is pretty back and white in the league rules. Am I in the wrong here? The fantrax site keeps a log of all rule changes/ overrides by commissioner so there is nothing I was trying to hide or pull the wool over people's eyes. I think it is just a case of people being overly competitive ( they are close to me in standings) and looking for anything to complain about. Thoughts?
  22. sounds like he pulled up lame going into 2nd on his double. Hopefully it's a cramp or something
  23. Yeah they had Jimmy Nelson around 300 when he has been a borderline ace for close to 2 months behind guys like Blake Snell
  24. Yeah I think he is really under-rated as far as 2B/MI goes. I was expecting solid average and 15 hr power but he has been running quite a bit which was a really nice surprise
