refresh my memory. in reversyland hacking baseball; more points is better, right? the worse your guys are doing, the better = more points.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 25 July 2016 21:28 (three years ago) link

yep

Thanks to 'sterling' outings by Josh Tomlin and Ubaldo yesterday, I'm #1.

I swooned mightily and finished 27th, presuming they don't let the hacker who put James Shields at every position win...

My worst picks were Yuli Gurriel, Matt Joyce, and surprisingly Jose Reyes, whose horrendous first 2 weeks lured me into picking him.

ice cream social justice (Dr Morbius), Monday, 2 October 2017 17:38 (two years ago) link

27th out of, what, a few hundred (?) ain't bad!

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 2 October 2017 18:34 (two years ago) link

just... not bad enough.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 2 October 2017 18:35 (two years ago) link

lol, right

i already have confidence in a couple of the position leaders for next year.

A shit ton of players earned 20+ points last night, but not me. So I checked the box scores and learned that Texas is still mysteriously letting Matt Moore pitch, and he gave up 6 ER in 1.2 IP.

Elvis Andrus has to be on some sort of leaderboard for this season's fall from grace?

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Tuesday, 28 August 2018 16:14 (one year ago) link

he's just at the low end of mediocre? True Avg has slipped to .241, which is weak but not awful.

a Mets fan who gave up on everything in the mid '80s (Dr Morbius), Tuesday, 28 August 2018 16:34 (one year ago) link

btw i am currently tied for 20th...

a Mets fan who gave up on everything in the mid '80s (Dr Morbius), Tuesday, 28 August 2018 16:35 (one year ago) link

i never know if that's good or bad – but congrats?!

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Tuesday, 28 August 2018 17:14 (one year ago) link

It's good for the contest... but I have no real chance of winning, bcz most of the leaders have some of the key players I do (eg, Alcides Escobar, Tim Beckham).

What pisses me off is they always close the rosters 2 weeks into the season, and some smartass always picks his roster as the ten players leading at their positions through 10-12 games. The guy who did that this year is still running 2nd! Chris Davis sucked through mid-April, and guess what?

seven months pass...

it's back, and the strategy is interesting this season bcz

1) some guys like HM perennial Alcides Escobar are finally gone

2) are the Orioles really gonna let Chris Davis repeat last year?

five months pass...

I finished 5th out of 125 players, best showing ever. If I'd just had the brains to pick Jarrod Dyson in RF instead of Kole motherfuckin' Calhoun, I'd have won going away.

All Stars:

Jeff Mathis C
Chris Davis 1B
Chris Owings 2B
Travis Shaw 3B
Nicky Lopez SS
Curtis Granderson LF
Lewis Brinson CF
Jarrod Dyson RF
Antonio Senzatela P
Jordan Zimmermann P

Like everyone in the top 10, I've been rewarded with a year of BP Premium. Unexpected! I don't read the rules much.
