Adding new roster slot for Trash Can – 2020 ILX Fantasy Baseball!

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

League has been auto renewed.
I'm setting the draft for oooooohhhh, let's say Sun March 22 at 4pm EST.
Please please please get me your keeper picks by the Sunday before so I can set rosters and draft order.

What is new this year?
I've added a 3rd IL slot.
We will be doing a weighted draft lottery based on last year's standings. Congrats again to last year's champ, NA, btw!
For keeper purposes age is going to be calculated as-of April 1st instead of the always-shifting opening day.
And it looks like Johnny Crunch will be retiring (sad face), with possibly a new GM taking over.

Keeper/player status spreadsheet is here

and as always, the rules:
• total of 5 keepers
• 2 of which must be 27, 28 or 29 yrs old
• another 2 players 26 or under
• one final keeper that can be either (basically anyone under the age of 30)
• age is calculated as-of April 1
• for a player to be keep-eligible he must have been drafted on draft day by your team or traded to you by a team that drafted him. that means:
• free agent/waiver pick-ups cannot be kept
• if you have less than 5 keepers, you will get an extra draft pick at the end of the draft
• keep it clean

whoooooo

i'm set on four of my keepers but am vacillating between two players for the fifth slot

na (NA), Thursday, 13 February 2020 17:36 (one month ago) link

i'll just repost this here:

i feel "ok" about my keepers i guess:

Bogaerts (27-29)
Tatis (<27)
Conforto (27-29)
Dahl (<27)
Benintendi (<27)

i'm worried Benintendi not-so-secretly sucks but he's also only 25 and looks to have a more prominent lineup role w/Betts gone.

also just want to put it in this thread too, attn: Will M. i shouldn't have raf devers or franmil reyes as keeper-eligible players in my spreadsheet, as i traded them to Blast First Petit last season

na (NA), Thursday, 13 February 2020 19:00 (one month ago) link

also my swap of Correa & friends for Lindor & others isn't reflected.

FRAUDULENT STEAKS (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Thursday, 13 February 2020 19:17 (one month ago) link

I put those into the sheet btw! should be ok now. A total of 9 players were traded, I only inputted the ones who are keeper relevant (i.e. weren't dropped or aren't going to be over 30)

also seeing the apr 1 thing now -- changing the "opening date" in the sheet, as I had it at 03-28. This has only effected 3 players, making them a year older, but they didn't change age brackets so no worries (dahl, bregman, and matt olson are 26, not 25). be sure to doublecheck tho, i found an error in the formula and had to "set" the date to apr2, i'm too brain-tired to fix now.

i think you mentioned off-season trades were ok last year? if so, misters broccoli and beforetime plz check webmails?

Hard no to offseason trades. No email goes out and no chance for GMs to vote against via the yahoo app.

i honestly thought it would be easier for people to figure out! i'm trying to avoid posting it on this account for sake of googleproof but i'm an orioles fan who left like 2 years ago, mostly posted on this board. and accidentally posted several times on that old account because i'm only logged into this one incognito.

March 22nd, perfect day for a draft. i'll be done celebrating my tenth anniversary -- i remember when i was being very groomzilla about the draft dates ten years ago since i was worried i'd have to cancel my wedding and honeymoon in order to participate.

ALERT ALERT i have made a huge mistake (or well someone did)

the spreadsheet i had was putting trevor story as born in 1982. he is born in 1992 wtf

so he is eligible for keeping as a 27 year old this year! i'm sorry for the fuckup! i hope there aren't any more of these!!

i think we're all gonna get more time to think about our picks. if the start of the season is delayed i might push back the draft date? maybe not? i'm not sure what to do or how long this could go on for.

francisF, Thursday, 12 March 2020 21:47 (two weeks ago) link

I think we should just go ahead with the draft on that date tbh unless everyone else disagrees. Maybe it depends on whether or not Charles Barkley gave the Angels coronavirus I guess.

omar little, Saturday, 14 March 2020 18:19 (two weeks ago) link

aside from the Charles Berkley part, i agree.
best to stick with a date that, miraculously, no one has had an issue with and that would at least allow us to made trades and gaze longingly at our league-winning lineup.

FRAUDULENT STEAKS (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Sunday, 15 March 2020 12:58 (two weeks ago) link

my2cents: I'd prefer to push the date to reflect the season best we can.

francisF, Monday, 16 March 2020 04:34 (two weeks ago) link

they're saying a delay could go back as far as July – and as more news comes in, the less i'm confident the US has the ability to handle this situation...
maybe putting the draft on hold is the way to go.

would really appreciate more input. am gonna send out an email.

FRAUDULENT STEAKS (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 16 March 2020 19:07 (two weeks ago) link

it's a bit of a risk someone gets screwed somehow, the larger the interim after draft

I don't think theres anything to lose in delaying it, so why not do that

francisF, Monday, 16 March 2020 19:24 (two weeks ago) link

i'm happy either way, as long as i get to pick 10-20 baseball men at some point this summer.

if they cancel the whole season i'll just make a pretend draft for myself and stare at it longingly til september.

Hackers (1995) (Will M.), Monday, 16 March 2020 20:32 (two weeks ago) link

that was originally my plan for april.

If the NBA is looking to head back in June, with the playoffs extending into late summer, then baseball could easily be off until then too. The season would be maybe 100 games plus playoffs? With no transactions or new injuries between now and whenever the season starts up again, would anyone really draft differently if the draft was held now vs two months from now? But I'm fine either way.

NoTimeBeforeTime, Tuesday, 17 March 2020 12:31 (two weeks ago) link

i think there is the potential injuries pop-up or maybe some teams don't get started on time due to sick players? there's so many variables at this point.
i also think i would go insane looking at a fantasy lineup i couldn't do anything with.

FRAUDULENT STEAKS (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Tuesday, 17 March 2020 13:41 (two weeks ago) link

i don't think it'll make a huge difference but it's probably prudent to delay

na (NA), Tuesday, 17 March 2020 14:06 (two weeks ago) link

yeah the thing i am most worried about is just 2 months of chances for catchers to injure themselves in luggage-related injuries (looking at you, both lucroy and perez, somehow)

Hackers (1995) (Will M.), Tuesday, 17 March 2020 17:00 (two weeks ago) link

I had the first two of my three drafts yesterday. It's like the ultimate fantasy draft because even the sports themselves aren't real!

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Monday, 23 March 2020 19:40 (one week ago) link

dang i saw this thread pop up and had a momentary panic like "shit did we not move the draft after all?"

Hackers (1995) (Will M.), Monday, 23 March 2020 19:43 (one week ago) link

You guys should just do it. It was fun!

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Monday, 23 March 2020 19:44 (one week ago) link

i already did my other league's draft a week ago today (it is blowing my mind that that was only 8 DAYS AGO) so i'm actually excited about this one being delayed, can't wait to see the difference between what i valued on march 15th and what i value on an undetermined day in the future hopefully!

Hackers (1995) (Will M.), Monday, 23 March 2020 20:15 (one week ago) link

i just spent hours painstakingly recreating my other fantasy league in ootp please come back real baseball
