  1. Like a lot of fans with no direct rooting interest for or against either team, I usually resort to some sort of narrative-driven justification for choosing who to root for in the playoffs. This one's a bit of a conundrum. On the one hand, the Rays are a triumph of sound front office decision-making based on analytics, and I loves me some analytics. On the other hand, the way they've taken analytics to the extreme has created a brand of baseball that's pretty terrible to root for. The Dodgers, meanwhile, spend money because they have money, which is never a good look when you want to root for an underdog narrative. But look below the surface and there are plenty of reasons to root for them. Kershaw's regular season success and postseason suckitude creates a good "monkey off the back" narrative, and I do think at some point ownership should be rewarded for spending money to put a winner on the field. Dodger fans have a rep as aloof frontrunners, and maybe that's true, but I don't see too many guys to root against in their dugout, so I'm going to be rooting for them in this one.
  2. NFL Waiver Wire Thread 2020 Week 7 This thread is for offering suggested waiver wire pickups for week 7 of the 2020 NFL season. It is not for the following: FAAB questions / discussions — these need to go in the FAAB Questions and Discussion thread Questions / discussions about adds/drops/trades — these belong in the Football Assistant Coach Forum Stories about your fantasy team — post these in the Cool Story, Bro! thread Team defense discussions — use the Team Defense / Special Teams / Streaming Thread Comments that fall into one of these categories or are otherwise not on topic for this thread will be removed. Some discussion of waiver suggestions is allowed, but this is not the place for an extended debate on the merits of any particular player. Take these in-depth discussions over to the outlook threads for the individual player(s) in question.

  4. [ Posts removed. This thread is for waiver touts, not "how do you rank these players" questions. Those go in the AC forum. ]

  6. Not sure what's more funny: a user named "steakaficianado" cheekily beefing about someone's beef, or the same user criticizing the misspelling of "mignon" while misspelling "aficionado".

  8. [ Posts removed. Periodic reminder that political / ideological commentary isn't appropriate for this forum.]
  9. [ Thread title fixed. Contrary to popular belief, we do not see every post in every thread within minutes of it being posted. If you'd like to direct our attention to something, clicking "Report post" is a lot more effective than posting a comment to the effect of "hey mods, please fix this". ]
  10. [ Guys, the bar is pretty low in the offseason, but the nasty turn this thread is taking is running the risk of not meeting that bar. The topic of this thread is Arozarena's fantasy outlook, not how smart you are or whose breakouts you called. Please aim to do better. ]
  11. [ Off topic political/ideological comments removed. This thread is for discussing the impact of COVID on fantasy football. It's not your Facebook feed. If your comment isn't directly related to informing others about the virus' effect on NFL teams and players, it does not belong here. ]
  12. [ Posts removed. To the extent that there's going to be any debate about how the NFL should be handling COVID, that debate needs to happen over here, not in the thread for every player who is or might have been exposed. However, that discussion needs to be confined to the impact on football, not political / ideological bickering. ]
