Applying pop-Marxism to Sabermetrics, owning libs who still believe in RBIs, and seemingly obsessed with WWI-era Detroit Tigers pitcher Bernie Boland, this is your VOTTO TRAP HOUSE for the season.

haha amazing. Can Ohtani be employed as offense and defense?

francisF, Friday, 30 March 2018 16:09 (one year ago) link

nope, he is in the system as two players. i have the "pitcher" version. the "hitter" version is available on the waiver wire!

lol at jpgs.

One thing about yfb that bugs is that games that lineups where players in games that have been PPD are not available to be subbed.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Saturday, 31 March 2018 18:14 (one year ago) link

sorry that made no sense, let's try again: If a game has been PPD, you should be able to edit that player from the PPD game out of your lineup.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Saturday, 31 March 2018 18:15 (one year ago) link

hey, how about some more bellyaching from me!

there's some obvious lag/glitch between the actual lineup page and the StatTracker, here's what my actual lineup is (Gardner benched/Frazier starting):

https://i.imgur.com/IN7bai9.png

and here's what the StatTracker is showing (with Frazier on the bench & Gardner starting... and more importantly, Frazier's stats aren't being calculated on the StatTracker):

Van Horn: FYI you can move a couple guys into DL slots and one of your minor league dudes into the NA slot. that'll open up three roster spots for you.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Sunday, 1 April 2018 06:30 (one year ago) link

I guess you guys inspired me – did up a quick spoof logo to go with the name:
https://imgur.com/a/M1rYR

C – J.T. Realmuto
backup / DL replacement C – Brian McCann
1B – Jose Abreu
2B – Ozzie Albies (shame on you people for letting him fall to me)
3B – Kris Bryant
back-up 3B – Matt Chapman
SS – Carlos Correa
OF – Andrew McCutchen
OF – Nomar Mazara
OF – Ryan Braun
OF and DL mainstay – Michael Btantly
OF / NA stash: David Dahl
2B/OF/rebound candidate – Jason Kipnis
super-mega utility dude – Eduardo Nunez

SP – Lius Severino
SP – Jose Quintana
SP – James Paxton
SP – Jake Arrieta
SP – Garrett Richards
SP – Jake Faria
RP – Edwin Diaz
RP – Addison Reed
RP – Kyle Barraclough

27-29 Keepers for 2019:
Bryant (27), Realmuto (28)

< 27 keepers (in order of the odds I'll be hanging on to them):
Correa (24), Severino (25), Albies (22), Mazara (23), Dahl (25), Faria (25), Chapman (25), Diaz (25)

my team's standing every year since we starting keeping players in 2011:
10/15, 7/15, 7/14, 1/13, 4/12, 2/11, 2/12

looking to end that three year dry spell, especially after two misses and losing Jose Fernandez.
will probably start looking to move Mazara/Dahl/Faria/Chapman for an upgrade a little into the season once we have a better look at them/the standings.

For a brief moment a few minutes ago, I was 1st in Quality Starts & last in Wins.

you're really going the long haul for Vlad, huh?

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Tuesday, 3 April 2018 16:50 (one year ago) link

I picked him towards the end of the draft, so it was low risk. I figured I might as well stick him in the NA spot and see if they bring him up this year.

NoTimeBeforeTime, Tuesday, 3 April 2018 18:42 (one year ago) link

Years ago I drafted Strasburg before his debut, hung onto him all season long until he was called up, then kept him all throughout the year he was recovering from TJ surgery. If you've got the roster spot to burn (and NA isn't an active roster spot) and if the upside is high enough then why not?

NoTimeBeforeTime, Tuesday, 3 April 2018 18:47 (one year ago) link

in my case, because i lack the required patience.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Tuesday, 3 April 2018 19:21 (one year ago) link

sometimes i get the existential fear, like knowing how Ian Happ will age out of being a keeper just before i turn 50.

omar little, Tuesday, 3 April 2018 19:26 (one year ago) link

i think about how old my daughter will be when Albies gets there. (almost high school age) :`(

i don't even remember ever being in the dang bottom half this season is a COMPLETE WASH

challops trap house (Will M.), Thursday, 5 April 2018 13:28 (one year ago) link

I added 3 players (Ohtani batting, Rosario and Panik), I believe it's fine? As in, it's by the rules? I'm still learning as I go.

Van Horn Street, Saturday, 7 April 2018 04:00 (one year ago) link

yeah add anyone you want -- just know anyone you drop at any point can't be kept next year, and anyone you pick up also cannot be kept next year :)

challops trap house (Will M.), Saturday, 7 April 2018 13:29 (one year ago) link

cool that i balanced out jakob junis and his six innings (so far) of no-hit pitching with jon gray's 12.6 era and marco gonzalez's 15.43 era

na (NA), Tuesday, 10 April 2018 02:22 (one year ago) link

Ohtani is the 3rd ranked pitcher and 28th ranked batter. O_O

Does anyone want to take a gamble on Danny Duffy, my 17th round pick? Holler at me with a SP offer.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Wednesday, 11 April 2018 19:03 (one year ago) link

lmao my entire OF is benched for the day, along with my two available backups also being a) benched and b) DLed.

omar little, Wednesday, 11 April 2018 21:12 (one year ago) link

when you have players on your fantasy team who are playing against the team you're a fan of that day, do you bench them bc you want them to perform poorly against "your team," or do you play them to mitigate the negative feelings if they do well against "your team"?

na (NA), Friday, 13 April 2018 14:25 (one year ago) link

i shut down any and all personal feelings. i am an unfeeling, uncaring, relentless fantasy baseball bot when it comes to setting my line-up.
