You have to delete the "m." which makes you go to the mobile site. I have the live scoring bookmarked and I just go straight into there and if I need to set my lineup I just go from there, that is what I would recommend.

Hey guys, sorry I've been quiet I've opened a restaurant and just got off a 28 day stretch of 14-16 hour days without a day of. I've done my best to keep up with my lineup and adds and drops. Text messages are the best way to get a hold of me or email, either works.

Thanks for being understanding and I hope things become normal again soon. As always, I'm looking for trades to improve my offense. I have SP that can be dealt.

Hi everyone,

With December here, we're only 5 months away from baseball! OK, so that's not that close – but as promised, 2013's offseason is a HUGE one for TBD – as we are going to making some major changes to TBD for 2013. The big news – once again, we have owners leaving this year, and once again, they are from bottom 5 teams. In tackling this problem, and the unhappiness with CBS, and the confusion on the MILB eligibility issue, Doug, Larry & I have taken some strong measures, that we are in unanimity will be carried out to address these issues, and help promote the long-term health of the league.

So, read on, and Gary et al. - buckle up, this is a BIBLE…..

1. RETURNING TEAMS – 18, NOT 20

First order of business – we have 17 confirmed returning owners, 2 who will not be returning (Pat & Dane – both giving up FBB for good), and 1 who is uncommitted, but leaning towards returning (Brian). With that in mind – we've had to replace owners the last 4 years, and with the exception of Alex, they've all been bottom 5 teams. After much discussion, Larry, Doug & I are unanimous in the decision to proceed and contract the league to 18 teams. Pat has traded away picks for 2013's MILB draft – these will be honored in their spot to the owners who acquired them in past trades, otherwise the rest of the picks are simply gone.

2. DISPERSAL DRAFT

So, with Pat & Dane's team no longer in existence, we will be holding a Dispersal draft – where anyone off Pat & Dane's team is eligible to be drafted, prior to the MILB draft.

The principles:

-You must still stick to the 25 MLB roster spot and 15 MILB spot max – so if you pick up a player, and you are at your max, you MUST drop someone in the proper spot. Teams that do not have open space will have their turn passed, and pick voided if they are unable to open a roster space at the time of the pick.

-The MILB & MLB eligibility criteria will follow along the 2013 simplified guidelines – if the player has 50 career MLB IP or less as a pitcher, or 130 career MLB AB's as a hitter – they can be put in a MILB spot alone. If they have more than 50 career MLB IP's or 130 career MLB AB's – they must be put into a MLB roster spot.

-We will run the draft in reverse order of last year's standings, so the draft order goes as follows:

1. Yawk

2. Nick

3. Justin

4. Rob

5. Kevin

6. Andy

7. Bob

8. Larry

9. Doug

10. Gary

11. Richie

12. Steve

13. Milt

14. Brian

15. Sean

16. RRF

17. Luis/Al

18. Mike

The beauty of above – if you want to get the best available player, go for it. If you want to fill a need and there's someone there – go for it. If you would rather build for the future and take a MILB player – your choice.

The Commissioners recognize that since teams could be picking MILB or MLB players in this draft, teams can't predict in advance (besides Yawk) which roster spots to open up - so we will require the drop at the time of the pick. But, to be clear - the teams MUST create open spots as they pick - teams cannot use picks, either to take players or to trade picks away, if there is no spot available to use that pick. Please note that players can't be waived after the draft is done to clear space - roster space has to be cleared at the time the pick is made. To repeat - teams that do not have open space cannot pick, so their turn will be passed and their pick voided if they do not clear space at the time of the pick.

To keep matters simple - all players waived to clear roster space from the 18 active teams will be eligible for the WW or MILB Offseason Draft later this year - this Dispersal Draft is only for players on Dane & Pat's team.

For teams that wish to explore trading away picks for the 2013 Dispersal Draft, the principle of not trading picks away that are taken by occupied players in your squad still applies (I.E. you likely would need to trade the pick away AND keep an empty spot - so teams aren't getting returns on picks they could not use, as their roster is full). So, to be extra clear - as teams do not know what spot the pick will be used for, if they trade away a Round 1 pick, there must be one open MLB & one open MILB spot on that team's roster - and must remain that way until the draft. If teams trade away a Round 2 pick, there must be 2 open MLB & 2 open MILB spots at the time of the trade - and must remain that way until the dispersal draft is complete. The above only applies to the team trading away picks (but if both teams trade picks then it applies to both teams), in keeping with prior rules in draft pick trades. Because it is unclear what spot is being used for the pick, a team that trades away picks for value must have open spots to match the picks in both the MLB & MILB roster spots. Teams who choose to keep their picks only need to clear roster space at the time of the draft. The rules on trading picks for the MILB Offseason Draft remain unchanged.

3. SWITCH TO 3 6-TEAM DIVISIONS

There is a huge scheduling advantage to the 18-team league – we can run a 3-Division setup, with each team playing within the Division 2x, and EVERY team outside the division 1x – no skipped teams. 22 week regular season, 3-week playoffs, as before. We will switch to a 3 division set up – and so it will be a truly balanced schedule – no more complaints of teams skipping cream puffs vs. others who skip a top 3 team. The playoff system will remain the same – 6 teams in, top 2 get byes, 3-week playoffs.

4. CHANGE TO FANTRAX

The owners who played in RotoWood can attest to the fact that Fantrax offers all the features that CBS does – and does several things better, including:

-Automatically will send all MILB players who are promoted to the WW (new for 2013, added as priority change, disclosed to Rob, confirmed again as incoming feature).

-Allows teams to set lineups 5 minutes before EACH PLAYER'S GAME – not 1st game of the day

-Allows custom schedules, and deep MILB player database, and allows us to add players to database

-Stays functional year-round

-It's way cheaper than CBS

After playing in it last year, the Commishes have agreed to proceed to move the league to Fantrax this year. We realize it will take some owners a while to get used to it – but believe me, if you have been using CBS, Fantrax will be at least as good (the only issue being the app is coming out still). And trust me, the change of the WW, and being able to set lineups throughout the entire day, well, I know you will enjoy the change no matter what, after all the torture CBS has put the league through!

5. REVISED PAYOUT

With the decrease in league fees with the change to Fantrax, and the decrease in # Division winners, this basically offsets the lost income from the 2 teams and allows some creativity in prize structure. So, with that in mind, in an effort to promote all teams to compete year-round, in addition to the anti-tanking rules that are still in place, a revised prize $ is being set up:

League income – 18 x 65 – 1170

Fantrax fee – 70

Prize pool - 1100

PayPal fees – $15

$65 to 3 division winners – $195

$65 to most improved non-playoff team (overall improvement in W-L-T record from prior year) – $65

Extra $ for 1st place regular season - $50

1st place Playoffs – $450

2nd place Playoffs – $225

3rd place Playoffs – $100

What's been changed for 2013 – the division winners get $65 instead of $50, a new $65 award for the non-playoff team that improves most from the prior W-L-T record. In short, it allows teams to battle for playoffs – but also the bottom dwellers have added incentive to improve, even if they don't have a realistic shot at the playoffs. After much discussion about the issue of losing 1-2 owners each year perpetually from the bottom 5 of the league, Doug , Larry & I all agree to institute this for 2013, as a measure to preserve the long-term health of the league.

6. DIVISIONAL ANNUAL REALIGNMENT

As the league has had overwhelming majority votes for realignment to be randomized based on tiered standings, we will proceed with a randomization of divisions based on last year's standings, with teams tiered into top 3, bottom 3, 2nd-best 3, 2nd-worst 3, and 2 packs of middle-3 teams. As always, the randomization will take place online using FFToolbox and you will receive an email of the randomization. Because the minimum is 4 divisions, we will use a dummy team – and the numbers will be moved up accordingly – I will explain before we randomize online in the spring.

7. MILB DRAFT ELIGIBILITY & IN-SEASON WW PICKUPS FOR MILB CALL-UP CHANGES

MILB Offseason Draft - as you know, the eligibility for MILB draft was confusing, out of past history. Based on overwhelming feedback from the past season, the Commishes have agreed to simplify MILB eligibility for the draft – if you have 130 career MLB AB's or less (hitter), or 50 career MLB IP's or less (pitcher) - you are eligible for the MILB draft. If you have more than 130 career MLB AB's (hitter) or 50 career MLB IP's (pitcher) - you are ineligible for the draft, and are eligible for the WW only. That means the Darvishes of the world from last year would be now draftable in the 2013 MILB draft.

In-season WW pickups & MILB promotions – with the switch to Fantrax, they have a simple solution – all players who are unrostered who get promoted from the MILB to MLB in real life get sent to the WW – and they can be claimed or not by that first, then after WW the FA claims can take place. Fantrax can also restrict any team from picking up MILB-status players on the WW.

OK, that's the whole scoop....coming up with crib notes in a sec. :lol:

Gary, if your eyes glazed over, here's the scoop:

-18 teams instead of 20

-Move to 3 6-team divisions instead of 4 5-team divisions – TOTALLY balanced schedule now

-League drafts from the 2 disbanded teams, reverse order of standings, pick up anyone you want, but have to stay within max roster limits (and drafted players go into MILB/MLB spots based on career #'s, under new simplified system)

-Teams must clear space at the time of the draft pick - not after the draft. Teams that do not have open space will have their turn passed, and pick voided if they are unable to open a roster space at the time of the pick. Teams that choose to trade away Dispersal Draft picks must create open roster space for both the MLB & MILB roster, as teams cannot gain value from trading away picks that are occupied by roster players.

-No MORE CBS – Fantrax, which allows lineups all throughout day, and handles MILB promotions neatly

-New prize $ for most improved non-playoff team, other prize $ mostly unchanged because of fee reduction with Fantrax, and 1 less division winner

-SIMPLIFIED MILB Eligibility for MILB Offseason Draft – 130 or less career MLB AB/50 or less career MLB IP – you are MILB draft eligible.

-SIMPLIFIED WW pick-up system during the season – Fantrax will automatically put all MILB players who are unrostered and called up to the MLB in real-life to our WW. Once they pass through the WW – they are fair game.

FINALLY....

As a league playoff team for the past 3 years, I will point out the obvious – the Dispersal Draft & extra prize helps the bottom teams catch up to the top teams. Doug, Larry & I are emphatic in our belief that if TBD is to continue to thrive, allowing the league's bottom teams a chance to catch up (not equalize, just a better chance) is key - and having something to shoot for during a rebuilding process where playoffs aren't a realistic shot (thus the most-improved prize) are key elements. For those who simply say "get a better team" - keep in mind for dynasty, under our current setup no bottom 5 team has taken less than THREE years to rebuild – and we've lost 8 owners in the last 4 years from those bottom 5 teams. Simply put, if we don't change, we won't survive. So let's adapt & thrive instead.

Thanks all,

For posterity, with the Dispersal Draft confirmed for Jan. 12-13, here are the Google Doc instructions (thanks to Rob)....

===

GoogleDocs Draft Instructions:

1) When it is your turn to draft, highlight the cell your current draft spot is in by clicking in it. This should bring up a small blue arrow to the right of the box.

2) Click the blue arrow to bring up the draft list. All players are in alphabetical order. You can scroll down to see all players by moving the grey box of the drop-down.

3) Select the player you wish to draft by clicking on their name.

4) If the Message Center underneath your name (lines 26-27) indicate your team roster is illegal, you must drop either an MLB or MiLB player as indicated by the message. Highlight the first cell under your name in the Drops section (line 13) by clicking on the cell. This should bring up another small blue arrow to the right of the box.

5) Click the blue arrow to bring up your current list of players. Again, all players are in alphabetical order and you can scroll down to see the players by moving the grey box on the right of the drop-down.

6) Select the player you wish to drop by clicking on their name.

===

What the above means – TEAMS CAN DROP PLAYERS AS THEY DRAFT – BUT MUST DROP TO CREATE OPEN SPOTS BEFORE OR AT THE TIME OF THE PICK in order to draft players if open spots do not exist.

Please note – if you wish to trade picks in advance – you will have to create an open spot for both a MLB and MILB spot at the time of the trade until the pick is used in order to trade away a pick, in keeping with prior trade rules on draft picks (see Dec. 4 post & TBD Forumotion rules for detailed explanation).

For those owners who can't bother to read the biblical discussion today, here's the recap:

GARY-LEVEL SUMMARY

The question on the table for 2013 – do we incorporate FAAB for 2013 as our Fantrax WW/FA pickup system, or keep the old system? To help those who don't list bible reading as a hobby, Gary–version notes:

1. WW would open up before season, and go by old system of WW priority on reverse order of standings. We would start FAAB on Opening Day, to let bottom teams a chance to get one more priority pick. This would repeat every year, not just this year.

2. FAAB would be 1x a day – and would be completely blind (no one knows how much anyone else is bidding).

3. If you spend your entire $100 budget, you can still bid $0 on any player and claim players – so there is no scenario in which owners can't fill spots – the question is what players they can get (that's the strategy of how much to spend each time).

4. Fantrax can show which bids lost out – so there is no issue of teams being accused of tanking because they couldn't fill spots for a day or two if their bids keep getting beat by other owners (everyone can see that).

FAAB actually creates less time spent, since you only need to do it 1x a day, prevents campers/those with info first to get FA's. Besides being new & unfamiliar to many, the other downside - it prevents owners from being able to pick up players 24/7 at any time. BUT again, with Fantrax giving us the ability to change lineups throughout the ENTIRE day until a player is actually playing, the reliance on missed FA/WW bids should be a LOT less – and once people start doing it, they get the knack of making multiple back-up $0 bids to get the spot filled (and not use up their budget for later, since those guys were backup plans).

That is the result of the entire convo so far – if you accept the above, and understand the above, then weigh in on yes/no. If you are unclear on any of the above – ask away.

/bows to the non-bible reading crowd.

John

P.S. Dialogue is still the ideal option – it's what led to the points above being clearer. BUT, for those who have more restrictive work environment, or are still sleeping *cough* Gary *cough*, here you go!

With the MILB draft done, time to get the WW started – but realizing about half of you have NEVER used Fantrax, we're going to delay the WW opening, for 3 reasons. First, it's going to allow you all to get some research in, check the available players, and also get some more news on players, etc. - to make the WW picks more relevant. As this is the time where the WW is deepest – everyone will have time to get their research done. Secondly, once the WW is open - we will revert Fantrax to ONLY allow teams to put players on the DL who actually have DL status – so it's better to wait until we get closer to the start of the season. Finally, and most importantly, we are also going to do a MOCK WW run on the mirror Fantrax site – TBD MILB BLIND BIDDING ONLY league – http://www4.fantrax....4ht6jqhc1dze47.

So, what we are going to do:

1. Run the WW at the TBD MILB BLIND BIDDING ONLY page - http://www4.fantrax....4ht6jqhc1dze47.

2. EVERY team – please put a WW claim on 2-3 players, all of them scrubs. Do NOT put in claims for players you actually may want to claim – as this WW does not actually count.

3. Get your WW claims, and who you will cut (if you need to clear space) - before the Wed. Mar. 6th 10 AM ET deadline.

4. Once the WW run has finished – I will simply reverse all the moves. But, I would like to see ALL 18 teams with WW bids completed, so to make sure you guys do NOT compete with each other, I ask each team to claim 2 players from ONE letter of the alphabet:

A – Yawk

B – Nick

C – Justin

D – Rob

E – Kevin

F – Andy

G – Bob

H – Larry

I – Doug

J – Gary

K – Boz

L – Steve

M – Milt

N – Brian

O – Sean

P – RRF

R – Al/Luis

S – Mike

That way, no one will lose claims – please claim TWO players, and drop someone if you need to get under the 7 reserve limit.

This way, you get to practice a WW run, and everyone will know how the WW works (and what might prevent a proper WW claim from running). It will also allow us to detect any bugs in our settings – so the real WW doesn't go haywire (like it did so often on CBS).

5. Assuming there are no major glitches – we will open the WW for real on the MAIN TBD page on Wednesday, Mar. 13th @ 10 AM ET – so you need to get your claims done before then.

Now, for those who have done Fantrax – you may say "I know how it works". BUT, it's also a test to make sure the settings don't cause a glitch (like how CBS used to not enforce max roster limits, so would allow ALL claims made by teams, even if it created 9 bench players on a team). And, the league might be set up differently than in other leagues (like RotoWood).

If you do NOT participate in the above – you lose the ability to complain about the Mar. 13 real TBD WW that will run on the main site. In other words - if you make mistakes in the Mock run - that's fine - we'll learn, and you'll be ready when the league runs the real WW run. BUT, if you skip this and screw up the WW claims - no going back, we will NOT rescind winning claims because your claim didn't go through properly even though you had priority (barring a system-level or settings glitch that causes problems, of course).

Feel free to ask away if you have questions!

Hey, I hope you’ve all been well, esp. our brothers in Boston. I’ve retired from fantasy sports & I haven’t posted in over a year, but I still felt it was important to change my avatar to support Boston. I hope it could be sensed in my past posts that my NY Yankee fan rivalry with Boston was a friendly, respectful rivalry. It’s times like these that we’re reminded of the important things in life & how we’re all Americans, not simply New Yorkers or Bostonians. Boston took a punch, but you’ll deliver 2 of your own soon. Be well, gentlemen.

Can we please fix Tony's team, that's a little bush league. I'm keeping an active roster and playing my best guys, he is CLEARLY tanking.

Thanks. Get it addressed soon please.

I hate to clutter up your forum, but I'd LOVE two of you long-standing Rotoworlders to join my brand new dynasty on Fantrax:

Please?

OK, I'll go away now. Good luck in the TBD league, everyone. Been envious of you all for a couple years now over this quality league.

Were there picks involved or is this Yawk's classic s--- trade before he goes dormant for 7 months?

We both know the answer to this.
