  1. If we do have baseball chances are very good it won't start much before July 1 . That leaves JULY-AUG- Sept . I hope if we get 81 plus games we don't have inter league play. Thoughts? I also think they can still name all stars but wait until after the regular season and NOT play a game. The ASG is usually played with about 68-71 games left . Thats roughly 40% . The voting process starts too early anyway. The players will already have had probably 2 full months off assuming we start ST again June 1 . Thoughts ?
  2. I would like to expand on this post by asking what leagues are doing if you have contracts? If baseball does resume but the season is half or less ( 81 games ) why not just leave contracts the same so players on your roster can be kept at the same price or year next year ? We had no control over any of this I just think it would be a good jester and probably generate move off season activity in leagues . I also think anybody drafted this year would have their contract remain the same next year. Again this is all only if we have a shortened season of 81 games or less.The season would have to start July 1 with no break for ALL Stars but the ASG is another subject. Of course its possible the amount of days may be less but they may try to play several double headers. In that case anything over 81 games just play out the contracts . Thoughts pro and con? I'm running a 12 team Auction league. Its three years if you don't extend a player just before the draft starting the third year.
  3. 12 team AL only . I have two shortstops. Mondessi and Lindor. Mondessi only has one year left on his contract thinking of trying to trade him now so I can get more value rather than later in the season. Who are a few players you would take in return for him ? I could keep him because we do use MI and DH which can be anybody. Just thinking I should cash in on the shortage of big base stealers in a single league format.
  4. Key word IF . That could take years IF at all. I like the what can they do for me NOW side.
  5. I agree with this. Could what Soler did in 19 be real? Maybe. But Rendon has a proven track record and as you said will go for more at the draft. Maybe you get Soler back and pay more but you know what you have for sure in Rendon.
  6. Going against the grain here. I see Lowe as a player that can help in 4 plus catagories that qualifies at a tough position . Yes he was out with a shin injury for a long time. But I trust a shin injury over Glasnow forearm . Plus the Twins will be very careful with Glasnow. I like Lowe hitting in mostly hitters ballparks in the AL east.
  7. When was the last time a Tiger pitcher reached his POTENTIAL ? Plus potential means you haven't done anything yet ( majors ) . I for one do NOT trust so called pitching studs. The list is long of top prospects either getting injured or not coming close to expectations.
  8. Im thinking of starting s new league using just AL or NL . 12 teams I have the managers . Seems split so trying to decide . Benefits of both roto and head to head . I played mainly in roto leagues . Played in one very low keyed head to head . I do prefer roto especially using both leagues. Thoughts on doing a single head to head league and auction style three year keeper . I’ve done single 12 team leagues . Have to really dig for players . Thinking 12 team single head to head league is even harder especially with only 1-2 transactions per week .
  9. The Yankees have had 70 save chances and have 48 saves. The Red Sox have had 46 Save chances and have only 24 saves Baltimore 41 save chances and have 24 saves Miami 35 save chances and 21 saves Just thought it was interesting the Yankees ad double the SVO and the Red Sox yet the Red Sox only had 11 move then the Marlins and 5 move than Baltimore. Sorry I am a little bored
  10. I'm thinking the same thing. I also thought he was a better fielder than Andjuar until I compared the two. Andjuar made 15 errors last year 286 chances. . Urshela has already made 13 in 240 chances. Plus what do they do with DJM ? Nice problem for the Yankees to have
  11. At this point does it really matter what it was? I haven't lost sleep wondering why . He has been out a long time . That's all that matters .Hopefully back in the lineup very soon and continues the season he was having pre injury. Thats all that matter to me.
  12. If he comes back and only plays 3-4 times a week its still better then what he's getting on the IL
  13. I hardly ever use this term We will NEVER know
  14. Vetoes suck!!! I would never play in a league that had them .
