Hmmm. He’s DL’d right now - but I’d move Mazara for some trade deadline nitro. Tho I’m sceptical I’ll be able to close the gap between me and holla.

I'm ISO some keepers.

FT:
Kluber (#4 SP)
Aguilar (#5 1B)
Trivino (#9 RP)
Cruz (#12 OF)
Jansen (#15 RP)
Happ (#25 SP)

Not sure if anyone else on my team would garner interest but lmk.

With only 13 teams in the league there are a lot of good unclaimed FA's and less incentive to make trades.

I think all of us are really protective of our keeper eligible guys and don't want to trade them away unless there's a really good chance of winning the league. These kinds of trades happened in the past when the top three teams were more closely bunched.

Yeah, the realy parity is in the middle... I just went from like 10th to 3rd in ~3 days.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Sunday, 5 August 2018 14:28 (one year ago) link

real*

Best thing I’ve done was draft Acuna.

Van Horn Street, Wednesday, 15 August 2018 02:15 (one year ago) link

Yup. Snag of the 2017 draft fo sho.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Wednesday, 15 August 2018 15:03 (one year ago) link

two weeks pass...

the story of my season today in a nutshell: ridiculous pitching (Eduardo-Rod: 5 IP, 11 K, 0 ER, 11:1 K/BB ratio), and 0-15 with one run scored from the offense.

Start Glasnow they* said
*rotoballers

I had the best ERA in the league coming into this game and Glasnow's 0.2 IP outing was enough to move my season ERA a full quarter of a run.

The WHIP race is insane right now: 4 teams within <0.01 at the top.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Wednesday, 19 September 2018 01:40 (one year ago) link

congrats BNW!
and congrats on ended your 10-year victory drought!

also, i just randomly discovered the league record book today! kinda fun to poke around (fun fact: i hold the all time, single-day strikeout record at 40).

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 1 October 2018 17:43 (one year ago) link

Kept expecting to get overtaken - must have lost like 30 pts in the 2nd half. Gerrit Cole and Suarez got me through. Thanks for the league! All those years of tanking paid off!

bnw, Tuesday, 2 October 2018 02:36 (one year ago) link

Frustrating year for me (every SP was injured at some point, etc.) but congrats bnw for dominating for most of the year and a well deserved win.

NoTimeBeforeTime, Tuesday, 2 October 2018 09:21 (one year ago) link

I learned a lot (namely that you should draft keepers in a keeper-league) yet I tried to give it a go and make it interesting (which didn't really happen). Impressively dominant win B!

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Tuesday, 2 October 2018 16:34 (one year ago) link

three months pass...

Hey Jimmy, We just got word that January 31st is opening day. Drafts will start February 5th. -Echo 🏈🏀🏒🏆

Will open up a new thread around Feb 1...
open to thread name ideas, since I apparently stopped being clever a few years back.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Saturday, 12 January 2019 17:54 (ten months ago) link

The keeper list (it's on the second tab in a handier format). Ages are updated and as of today so are drops from September!

suggest boban (Will M.), Wednesday, 16 January 2019 16:23 (nine months ago) link

Thanks Will.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Wednesday, 16 January 2019 17:42 (nine months ago) link

do we have any control over whether same-day adds or drops are allowed in our league? if we do, is there any interest in adding that?

na (NA), Tuesday, 29 January 2019 16:24 (nine months ago) link

i think that's just a box i tick or somesuch. i'm fine either way, but wouldn't mind some kind of consensus before i do or don't tho.
i'll make a new thread once me, or someone smarter than me can come up with a name.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Tuesday, 29 January 2019 17:17 (nine months ago) link

i tried to do it in my basketball league and couldn't find it! if you find it lmk where!

How about a name like idk Countdown to CBA Work Stoppage 2019

suggest boban (Will M.), Tuesday, 29 January 2019 17:53 (nine months ago) link

oh, i like the CBA angle...

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Tuesday, 29 January 2019 18:05 (nine months ago) link

it's been slow at work lately and i'm ready for winter to be done so i've been thinking ahead to fantasy baseball. so i think i have my keepers figured out already. not gonna declare until i have to but i think i've got it unless trades/injuries impact my choices.

na (NA), Tuesday, 29 January 2019 22:00 (nine months ago) link

there it is. new thread title.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Wednesday, 30 January 2019 20:19 (nine months ago) link

Where is it?

suggest boban (Will M.), Thursday, 31 January 2019 15:19 (nine months ago) link

Yahoo leagues open this afternoon.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Thursday, 31 January 2019 17:12 (nine months ago) link

using this entire post as the league name is for some reason hilarious to me:

i am very sleep deprived. maybe just the first sentence. or possibly something about manipulating service time. i am so tired.

Yahoo is the only platform that's keeping Ohtani as 2 separate P/DH entities:

Hey guy, any particular reasoning behind making ohtani two players instead of one? Thanks

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Thursday, 31 January 2019 18:58 (nine months ago) link

maybe im sleep deprived too because i just laughed at this idea for a threda name (please don't do it)

Hurrah! Another Year, Surely This One Will Include Ohtani As One Player; The Inexorable March of Two-Way Players Will Lead Us All to VORPiness
