  1. How excited though - he's injured again. IMO it doesn't matter if he can actually suit up in mid-April. He's going to be behind the curve substantially from a prep standpoint if/when he gets those April starts. I would not blindly take him as a SP1 or 2 even w/o more info - I'd be hoping he drops. This of course is as of Feb 16.
  2. How in hell is his own locker room going to react to this debacle. All the GF's/Wives will be aware - how does this get explained.
  3. FYI the spot has been filled. Thanks for the interest.
  4. If this is anywhere near accurate I think it's reasonable to have some hope he'll be full strength by May. I'd draft (at a discount). MIKE CLEVINGERSP, CLEVELAND INDIANS The Indians announced Friday that Mike Clevinger (knee) is expected to return in six-to-eight weeks. Clevinger underwent surgery on Friday to repair a partial tear of the medial meniscus in his left knee. Given that we're six weeks out from Opening Day as it is, it sounds like the right-hander should only miss the first couple of weeks of the regular season. Fantasy owners with stock in Clevinger can breathe a sigh of relief here, because it could have been much worse. SOURCE: Mandy Bell on Twitter Feb 14, 2020, 8:13 PM ET
  5. This dude is all sorts of effed up: Mitch Haniger (sports hernia) underwent a second core surgery on Thursday. He had surgery to correct a sports hernia three weeks ago and had a second surgery today. Haniger is expected to be sidelined deep into the 2020 season. The 29-year-old outfield has had a rough go of things since suffering a ruptured testicle in June that required surgery, then while rehabilitating that injury he suffered a back injury that kept him out for the rest of the season. In January it was revealed that he needed core surgery to fix the sports hernia and now he needed a second core surgery. Haniger batted .220/.314/.463 last year with 15 home runs, 32 RBI and four steals in 63 games before the injury bug struck. SOURCE: Jeff Passan on Twitter Feb 13, 2020, 10:01 PM ET
  6. Hello- I need owners in a 12-team re-draft Roto on Yahoo. One spot is currently open. This is a 6X6 Roto (cats below). It costs $20 to get in. Payout is $180/$40/$20 for 1/2/3. I have always previously used PayPal but after receiving a notice from them that I was committing a felony by using their service for fantasy football (and having my account temporarily frozen as a result) I am doing checks-only for fee payment until some consensus is reached by individual states as to how they’re going to implement the new Federal sports gambling laws. The league has a fee deadline (Friday March 6 6PM PT). If you fail to make this deadline I will begin recruiting other owners for your reserved spot. Your fee buys your right to draft. The league has Commish Review for trades - no votes. Trades are processed immediately - no waiting. There is one single criterion for a commish veto: collusion. I have never vetoed a trade. No trades are "official" until I announce as such to the league via e-mail, however I usually do so within a couple hours. Regardless of when the announcement is made your newly acquired players will accumulate stats right away. In case of a veto the players involved would be returned to their original teams and stats adjusted accordingly. Neither team would be invited back the following year and their trading rights would also be removed. The league' draft order is determined in the inverse order of the previous season's finish. In this league you'd have be picking #1 overall (snake draft). I have commished 54 different leagues over the past 14 years (37 football leagues, 17 baseball leagues) on Yahoo. 2020 will be my 18th year involved in fantasy sports on Yahoo. This is my roto league's 10th year. Many of the owners are charter owners. I like dependable, accountable, active owners. If that is what you are you'll be invited to my leagues for the remainder of your natural life if you are so inclined. I am not fond of "kicking people out" (it has happened on rare occasions) but inactive owners who quit early on get quietly weeded out as we move from year to year by simply not receiving an invite. Most of the current owners have cases full of trophies so the competition level is as solid as you can hope for in my penny-ante leagues. Below is a copy/paste of the settings. This league drafts Friday March 20 @ 6PM PDT/9PM EDT. If you are interested please PM me and I will send an invitation and/or additional info per request. If you want a no-strings-attached invitation I'll provide that so you can go in and look around. You'll have 24 hours to decide - UNLESS I get another request for invitation, after which I'll ask you to speed up your decision. FYI - please include your e-mail address in your PM if you want an invitation. Additional item: If you’re on the East Coast take note of the draft time: 9 PM EDT. If you are not up for a draft that late obviously you need to take that under consideration… -Todd League ID#: 5438 League Name: BASEBALL FREAKS OF AMERICA League Logo: Auto-renew Enabled: Yes Custom League URL: https://baseball.fantasysports.yahoo.com/league/bfa1 Draft Type: Live Standard Draft Draft Time: Fri Mar 20 6:00pm PDT [ Add to My Calendar ] Live Draft Pick Time: 1 Minute, 30 Seconds Max Teams: 12 Scoring Type: Rotisserie Player Universe: All baseball New Players Become Available: As soon as Yahoo adds them View List of Forced Players Max Acquisitions for Entire Season: No maximum Max Trades for Entire Season No maximum Trade End Date: August 9, 2020 Allow Draft Pick Trades: No Waiver Time: 1 day Waiver Type: Continual rolling list Waiver Mode: Standard Allow injured players from waivers or free agents to be added directly to injury slot: Yes Can't Cut List Provider: None Trade Review: None Post Draft Players: Follow Waiver Rules Max Games Played: 162 Max Innings Pitched: 1400 Roster Changes: Daily - Tomorrow Start Scoring on: Thursday, Mar 26 End Scoring on: Sunday, Sep 27 Make League Publicly Viewable: No Invite Permissions: Commissioner Only Send unjoined players email reminders: Yes Roster Positions: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, Util, Util, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P, P, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, IL, IL, NA Batters Stat Categories: Runs (R), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Strikeouts (K), On-base + Slugging Percentage (OPS) Pitchers Stat Categories: Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Holds (HLD), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP), Quality Starts (QS)
  7. I'll never forget Tartabull's '86 season (drafted in '84). He looked like a true sensation. True to Mariner form - he was traded the following year to the White Sox. That was a big brick in my personal wall of disavowing the Mariners as a legitimate baseball team - and I was forced to watch all their games living in the PNW. My other one is I was at the home game v BAL when the Kingdome tiles fell onto the field. My senior year at UW - it was in July or so 1994. That was the last game played at the Kingdome for a while. It was opened back up later but it was destined for demolition after that.
  8. That surprises me - the relative ADPs. Anyone - well OK any sensible person who needs a 3B - would take Manny if they're sitting that close together, particularly in roto. I haven't done tiers yet either but what this tells me is there's no way I'll get Vlad this year in a 12-team redraft haha.
  9. It's not terrible for a rookie though. Those are numbers a player of his caliber can build on. I get what you're saying but he did well enough last year to intrigue me a bit depending on where he's going - I haven't done a lot of mocks yet.
