  1. i'm not sure why nobody in this thread is questioning the important items: has this been done all season long? was this a one time incident? i mean, they claim it's for a TV show.. how many games have they been at recording? i'm sure this is being investigated by the NFL, and not publicly known yet, but it's a big piece of information. did i miss this in the onslaught of argumentative comments? if it's a one time thing against the bengals.. yeah, looks bad, but in reality probably not as nefarious as everyone is making it out to be. if it's been every opponent they're going to face the next week...that's seriously questionable and will likely end up with major penalization, and rightfully so. haters and jockstrappers can probably both agree that nobody thinks the patriots need this type of advantage over the bengals.

  4. MLB released their end of season top 100, with a nifty write-up showing notable movers (both up and down) with short blurbs: https://www.mlb.com/news/top-100-prospects-lists-updated
  5. Pretty sure this has been requested/discussed numerous times and always denied. I'm in favor, but don't get your hopes up.
  6. what an odd way to say "i was wrong." AB is a generational talent. regardless of his off-the-field issues, if he's playing, you start him.
  7. not to go into great detail, but they do have an app, it's just an implemented differently than other host sites. they use what's called progressive web application, which essentially means the website determines whether you're on a mobile or desktop machine and the site displays different depending on your device. it is/was created to specifically work on/with mobile devices. https://www.fantrax.com/app
  8. there are only a handful of sites to consider: yahoo, cbs, espn, fantrax, and onroto is pretty much the full list as far as a i know. fleaflicker and sleeper are a couple of others, but i think they're football only (not positive, though). personally, i think fantrax has the best combo going (appearance/function), but like socks, beer, and cars, everyone has their own opinion about the best brand. i like fantrax for two reasons: (1) an extremely deep player pool and (2) they are steadily attempting to improve their site. i like to see that someone is attempting to get better. i'm not claiming it's the best for everyone, lots of folks don't like the visual appearance of the fantrax site and/or fantrax's attempt/lack of a phone app, but i don't have any issues with either. also, a thread dedicated to platform discussion:
  9. aren't you missing the most important/standout part of his contribution? AVG/OBP?
  10. the problem is that we won't know until it's too late (i.e., well into the season) whether the balls stay the same or change. MLB essentially refused to admit the balls changed in the first place, do you think they're going to be up front and honest about changing them back, or slightly tweaking them in an attempt to find a middle ground? i don't..
  11. maybe a decent flier type guy, but i'm concerned he's a juiced ball product. ISOs around .350 in AAA this season, but never showed that kind of power before. hitting in SF will do him no favors if the power isn't real. no idea what his playing time will look like, either. not much [good] competition in SF for an OF spot, but who knows... they're all pretty meh. i'm going to say outside of NL-only leagues or 16+ team mixed, he's not going to provide much value. maybe a little more in OBP/points leagues assuming his decent BB% (roughly 10% across three teams/levels in the minors this season) holds up in the majors?
  12. i've used him off and on, but i'm concerned it's a sustainable change.. http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/kolten-wong-is-carrying-the-cardinals/
