  1. I don't think I've ever seen a player hit the ball as well as A-Rod did those last 2 months or so of the 1996 season. He hit well all season, but those last 2 months were insane as I recall. Then he got robbed of the MVP by 3 points to Juan Gonzalez. My buddy, that I always watched games with in Seattle, moved to Iowa to work for a while during that season and missed it all. I called him every day to try to explain what I was watching. He was so pissed that he missed it. This was before cellphones, streaming, good internet, etc. were all readily available.
  2. As a 37 year Mariner fan, I hope that these guys pan out. As a 37 year Mariner fan, history tells me that they won't. The problem is that we need at least 80% of them to pan out to field a team that might make the playoffs. I don't have high hopes, but there is a glimmer of hope.
  3. My buddy, drunk as a skunk, traded Adam Wainwright for Cargo. As Cargo was my favorite player at the time, he called me to rub it in. As commish, I checked on the trade. He traded for Cargo alright. Carlos Gomez. He thought he traded for Carlos Gonzalez. We still give him crap to this day.
  4. About as mad as I've ever been as a Mariners fan, and that's saying a lot. I loved Jose Cruz Jr. Let's not forget we also got the dominating Paul Spoljaric.
  5. My buddy and I talk about this every year. The curse of Strasburg. Only the M's would win all of these absolutely meaningless games to miss out on him, only to get one of the biggest busts ever. And then the Nationals and Strasburg go to, and win the World Series, leaving only the M's as the one team that has never made it.
  6. The rules are going from keep forever to 1-4 yr contracts. Acuna and Soto will be getting 4 yr contracts for sure.
  7. H2H Points -10 Team Keeper: Our players have always kept the original round that they were drafted in or picked up as FA’s(last round) so this will help revalue the players. For instance, Trout is still a 25th round keeper from originally being picked up as a FA years ago. This needed to change. We are changing the rules to allow for only 4 keepers(was 6) and we have to assign 1-4 year contracts on them. We could previously keep them forever. I need to pick 4 from this list. Player and keeper round. Ronald Acuna 6th Rafael Devers 8th T.Turner 25th Yordan Alvarez 25th Juan Soto 25th Javier Baez 15th Pete Alonso 21st Vlad Guerrero Jr 25th Carlos Correa 25th Bo Bichette 25th My choice right now is: Acuna, Soto, Baez, Devers or Turner.
  8. Fuller and Howard out scored by a kicker against me. Solid start to the championship.
  9. I don't know how many times I've said this. Yet, he was dropped last week and I picked him up yesterday for today's game. I deserve this.
  10. Standard league, but we do get an additonal 2 points every 5 catches. Ramsey is supposed to shadow Cooper, so that should give Gallup plenty of chances, as long as Cooper actually makes it through the game. AJB is pretty risky, but also has a very high ceiling as we've seen recently. He could easily throw up a stinker though.
  11. We get 2 pts for every 5 receptions, so almost like a half ppr? I have Howard currently in, but also have Godwin in my lineup. If Jameis has any issue with that hand and/or has to come out, it could get ugly for me pretty quickly.
  12. AND this is only a 10 team league. That roster in a 10 teamer. So bad.
  13. This team is in the championship in the money league I've commissioned for 13 years. Horrible team. He was 7th in points for and got lucky most weeks, including week 1 of the playoffs. I hate fantasy football.
  14. He was drafted and dropped in October. It's not like he was setting the world on fire prior to 3 weeks ago. Also a 10 team league, so right on the fringe of rosterable.
