Billy Butler hit a home run last night... I had him in my lineup. wut

#fantasygenius

Bwahaha! Bully was dropped a whiilllleee back (before his 1st HR).. he was just sitting their like a sad fatty... So I picked him up and that ONE day I owned him he hit his 1st. I dropped him right after. It was kinda like a one night stand. The best part is I won by 1 HR that week too.. Ohh the timing

No idea how you managed that stat line with only 10-12 starters.

Duda carried both of my teams to offensive victories last week. Winning each of my leagues 8-2. Best part was on Sunday I was down in pitching Ws, Ks and Whip. I decided to use the rest of my moves on the week to attempt to catch Ws and Ks. Threw 7 trash pitchers and got 40 IP/3 Ws/2.5 ERA/.95 whip/40 Ks to make an epic comeback.

Yea we start 11 in that league. 4OF and 2 utils. Rizzo, Santana, Cespedes = 14 HR and 29 RBI. Couple extra days to last "week" too.

My team is terrible in that league anyway. I'm like 20 games out of first.

One of the more ridiculous lines I've ever managed.

Would you have beat that? B)

(btw of my 3 losses this year, 2 were on a tie breaker and this was the guy who beat me legitimately last time... feels good to get that redemption in the form of a sweep)

Haha I love the lengthened week. For Yahoo ours was week 15 and I had 115 hits and 133 strikeouts. :D Pretty much cemented my place in the league Record Book.

First 8 weeks .465 winning %

Second 8 weeks .613 winning %

Good enough from 11th to 2nd. I caught the injury bug early on...Kipnis, Zimmerman, Gordon, Gio, Ryu, Fister, Belt, Gattis plus i have had to deal with the Hosmer curse for the first half. Remaining opponents are all 9th-12th with the exception of 1st place next week. Feel pretty good about this one.

Nope, my pitching is terrible. 10 keeper league. I took over for a buddy who bailed in this league 2 years ago and the team was terrible. I don't keep pitching. I punt saves to carry extra starters because everyone streams in this league. 6 of 12 teams with 100-160 transactions already, haha.

I had 98 K 7 W 1 SV (Timmay) 4.03 ERA 1.274 WHIP

Four leagues and right now I'm:

1) 1 out 16

2) 1 out 14

3) 5 out 10

4) 9 out of 12

I'll take 2 out of 4 this year especially considering the one is the largest. The last one was quite dissappointing. Of course, it's never over and I know too well what it feels like to lose in the playoffs!!! At least one of the lagues is a roto...

Good luck all!!

Went 12-0-0 in my dynasty league; now in 1st place. First 12-0-0 win this season; won AVG by .008 (.2544 vs .2536).

After having an ERA of over 6.5 last week, had an ERA under 2.5 this week; head-to-head can be a pain.

Looking for my first title!

Came back from a daunting 3-9 hole that looked unbeatable. I was getting crushed all week. I somehow managed to end up with a 6-6 tie. Not a victory, but I'll take it.

Check this out. Upton plays Sunday Night Hero for the second Sunday in a row with his home run last night. Last week, put me ahead in homers. This week, pulled me even. B)

My 10 H2H teams went 8-1-1 for the week. The one loss is with a team in 1st place that I ran out of moves with before the ASB (never noticed the rule change from last year :D ). It lost the week 5-6 by losing every pitching category and tieing in stolen bases.

My problem team after what politely could be called a slow start, in last place after four weeks (8-35-5), is now comfortable in the playoffs after going 108-59-13 after a plethora of trades (9) remaking the entire roster.

Not really. I can set all 10 in a daily in about 15 minutes. Add/drops through the course of the season tend to be almost the same for each team.

If I like a player for one team, pretty much I like him for the rest of them, and if I have a player on a team that I want to drop the same holds true.

Trading takes a little more time looking for the right fit per team, but I don't try to lowball anyone ever so the proposal / counterproposal isn't as protracted. I send what I think he is fair and if they counter I either accept or send one more counter. After that it is time to move on. I don't worry about getting that "little extra piece" as it usually is a player I don't want or need. I play in long standing keeper/dynasty leagues and most of the other managers already know this.

I do a lot of trading (or what I consider a lot) and this year average about 4-5 per team. Some more some less. My record is 17 trades for 1 team that I took over in June last year. Team was in 10th when I got it and finished 2nd after a good run in the playoffs.

Had 10 runs 4 HR and 19 RBI yesterday even with me screwing up and playing both Duda + Moss over Fowler. Woulda had 12 R 5 HR and 20 RBI if I wasn't so dumb.

Was afraid about my 1st round matchup after settling into the 4 seed and missing the bye but I'm currently up 10-0! Sweep alert! Obviously risking the jinx here but I'm up big in most categories and hold the tiebreaker so I'm ready to announce I will be advancing to the semis :D . Time to play the #1 team.

First h2h league since my league switched from rotisserie has been pretty irritating but I'm still alive and have a chance to win
