  1. All Fat Guy team

    Ray King would like a LOOGY role please.
  2. H2H vs Roto Thread

    Haha. The categories that you don't want to get buried in early in the year is WHIP and to a lesser degree batting average. But the counting stats come in bunches often times. If you play in innings cap format, then you have to look at your K per inning and win (or quality start) per inning as opposed to the raw totals. There's always teams who are already 50 innings over pace for the cap and thus have more K's simply because of more innings. But pretty much... April standings are pretty meaningless. You just don't want to get buried in categories, especially the ratio ones.
  3. Favorite Announcers?

    Mets announcers are my favorite in the league. A shame they have to broadcast, you know, the Mets.... I find Hawk amusing in small doses. I swear that dude takes a White Sox loss harder then all the players on the team combined. I don't think I could take him on a daily basis though. I hate to be the one to say it but Scully gets the pitch wrong like 50% of the time. It's like he just guesses each time, lol. *Curveball at 75 MPH* "Fastball away to Hanley."
  4. MLB.tv deals 2017

    How do you use the chromecast since it only lets you broadcast a tab, when I open up the mlb.tv window with the game it takes away the chromecast button on the window? Figured it out- you have to broadcast the whole screen (which sucks because now you can't use your laptop for other stuff.) New problem is the video on my tv is unbearably laggy and choppy. I have 50 download per second, internet is good...

    Is it possible to stream the games to your tv from your laptop while still having other tabs open and doing other things? I mean have it stay streaming the games while I change to a new window on my laptop.
  6. H2H vs Roto Thread

    One thing that has yet to be mentioned and in my eyes is one of the biggest reasons why H2H is not something I will play is baseball by nature quite simply is not meant to be split up into weekly increments. The amount of variance is huge in terms of how teams play and how stats get accumulated. That is why there is a 162 game season in the first place. You need large samples in baseball for it to mean anything. Splitting up week by week for when you record stats just makes those stats way less significant and meaningful. There's not going to be much rhyme or reason for weekly stat accumulation in baseball.
  7. H2H vs Roto Thread

    I mean I admit I am the prototype snob, no denying it. I don't even want to bother arguing the merits of h2h because my opinion is so extreme in one direction that no one can convince me otherwise. I just honestly am surprised at how many people on here and other places play h2h like I said. I have consistently seen that in threads on here and other people in real life who go pretty hard with their fantasy leagues playing h2h as well. I understand the appeal for the casual player and there's nothing wrong with that. The part that I cant fully comprehend is why the hardcore players would choose to do it. Not that I don't know the reasons (they have been listed here and other places 1000 times), its just that I disagree with almost every one of them so much that its hard for me to wrap my head around it and make sense of it. Just a strong difference of opinion. And I am the roto elitest a hole, I ain't denying it.
  8. H2H vs Roto Thread

    I am honestly always amazed at these threads. I just am shocked at how many people who like fantasy baseball enough to post on a message board still play H2H. Ya I guess I am a roto snob, but I stopped playing h2h leagues in like 7th grade...
  9. Daniel Straily 2013 Outlook

    Oh FFS here we go. The guy has been throwing batting practice all year and posters who have been touting him dissapear, then he has one good outing and suddenly there are 7 posts from Foul Line. There is still zero reason to own him at this point. If he has another one or two good starts then maybe re evauate, but right now this guy has been nothing short of brutal and isn't relevant in mixed leagues.
  10. Daniel Straily 2013 Outlook

    After watching him pitch in his last start I have to say I am very excited for his start today.... ...As someone who has multiple Rangers on my team. He's someone I will be targeting waiver hitters against if I am looking for a cheap homer.
  11. Daniel Straily 2013 Outlook

    Just take him out so I never have to see this guy pitch again. Good lord does he serve up meatballs. ^I doubt they will change that one though. It was one of those "could go either way" calls. But it just feels like they always screw you on them lol. Scorers these days only give out errors if you throw the ball into the stands or something. The most recent for me was Latos last start on the pop up by Soriano ruled a single cost him 3 earned. Thought for sure they would change that and they never did... Anyway I digress. This guy isn't good and is a threat to give up multiple home runs in every start he has. He serves up 90 mph heat middle up in the zone over and over again, this is the first time I actually watched him this year. I will not be using him again in a mixed league.
  12. Daniel Straily 2013 Outlook

    Seagers ball was a dink off the glove of Lowrie and of course they rule it a hit instead of an error. Would have made all the runs unearned. I swear official scorers are just out to get me this year. EVERYTHING is a freaking hit.
  13. Daniel Straily 2013 Outlook

    Spot starting this guy, first inning morales hits a taylor made DP to Donaldson and he hesitates and can't decide whether or not to grab it so it goes through for a single. Now the next two guys have hit singles ad its 2-0 with men on 2nd and 3rd and one out recorded. Not sure why I even bothered using this guy, he isn't very good despite the bizarre hype train on him.
  14. Daniel Straily 2013 Outlook

    lol this is seriously just not even fair. He just gave up a hit to Altuve, falls behind Wallace 3-0. Gets over a 3-0 fastball. Wallace swings and misses at ball 4. 3-2. Wallace swings and misses at ball 4. Strikeout number 7 in 3 innings. FTB noted how you can get away with his repetoir and strike people out against minor league hitters, well, he's doing that again tonight, it just happens to be in a major league stadium.

    You think Straily is more talented than Brett Anderson? And his upside is higher then Parker, a former 9th overall pick who put up a 3.47 ERA his rookie season? Unlike FearTheBeard you give no evidence to back up any of these assertions so its hard to really take any of these as anything more than an arbitrary opinion.
