Thermo/Will, how many more people are we waiting to finalize keepers? Is there a deadline?

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Monday, 4 March 2019 22:26 (five months ago) link

i think thermo said a week today (mar 11) for keeper deadline. all i know is only one team hasn't posted their keepers in this thread yet (guns of buxton) and they have an embarrassment of riches to choose from and i am kinda jealous.

they're not booing you, sir, they're shouting "Boo'd Up" (Will M.), Monday, 4 March 2019 22:35 (five months ago) link

Nice! If I get a chance tonight I'm gonna start building my a pre-ranking list in the event I'm unable to attend the live draft.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Monday, 4 March 2019 22:40 (five months ago) link

I can't wait to end up with 5 shortstops!

francisF, Wednesday, 6 March 2019 15:35 (five months ago) link

took me a few years, but i finally found a trustworthy list of players birthdates (vs. just a "list of ages" that is never accurate) so hopefully my keeper sheets will never have an opening day age issue again! but do double-check and let me know if there are any mistakes!

they're not booing you, sir, they're shouting "Boo'd Up" (Will M.), Wednesday, 6 March 2019 21:03 (five months ago) link

If I had the time, I would scrape the baseball-reference site for their entire birthdate database and then use that as a master to run a SQL query against (or vlookup if in a spreadsheet).

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Wednesday, 6 March 2019 21:24 (five months ago) link

someone beat us to it, apparently! link

they're not booing you, sir, they're shouting "Boo'd Up" (Will M.), Wednesday, 6 March 2019 21:28 (five months ago) link

Haha, exactly.

If it's a true keeper league the draft order should be the reverse standings at the end of the previous season.

this is something i'd definitely be interested in talking abt more! always made sense to me as the strongest teams will typically have the strongest keepers, so reverse order (and no snake) made the most sense for the next year's draft. is this something we could consider in the future? (i'm not just saying this because i finished in the basement for what feels like the first time ever!)

they're not booing you, sir, they're shouting "Boo'd Up" (Will M.), Wednesday, 6 March 2019 22:07 (five months ago) link

I’d consider it - but what’s to stop teams from benching guys and tanking once things start looking bleak?

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Thursday, 7 March 2019 00:18 (five months ago) link

i'd say there should be some kinda "at least start guys" rule or you get kicked to the bottom of the draft order per commish's discretion. as long as we had something like that, i think most of us are above-board folks. and no dropping good-ass players in september!

they're not booing you, sir, they're shouting "Boo'd Up" (Will M.), Thursday, 7 March 2019 14:58 (five months ago) link

ya - we are all pretty awesome, but i would prefer to eliminate temptations wherever i can.
maybe what i might propose doing is going half way between random and standings-based draft order.
basically what i've been doing is putting team names into an online random list generator. what i could do is make it a weighted draft lottery – giving 13 entries to the 13th place team, 12 to 12th place and so on until 1st place getting one entry and then draw for the first pick using the rondo generator, then 2nd round etc.
a bit more work for me, but more fun and wouldn't 100% guarantee the first pick to tanky mcsitstrout.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Thursday, 7 March 2019 17:17 (five months ago) link

i'm also thinking of a daily transaction limit of 3, to prevent anyone from going crazy with the same-day FA adds. that seem reasonable?

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Thursday, 7 March 2019 17:30 (five months ago) link

can't imagine needing more than 3, although i know yahoo has a safeguard against "churning" free agents, so like i can't pick up and drop 20 guys to put em all on WW. anyone you pick up and drop same day just goes back in the FA pool, iirc? but yeah still 3 per day seems fine!

also love the weighted lottery idea!

oh! i that's the case, i won't even bother with transaction limits. i'll look into this some more, thanks.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Thursday, 7 March 2019 17:48 (five months ago) link

FWIW: When I was commish we had a seasonal tranactional limit. Limitless leagues are much easier to game.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Thursday, 7 March 2019 17:49 (five months ago) link

ok player has to be rostered for 24 hours to go on waivers. transaction limit cancelled.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Tuesday, 12 March 2019 14:52 (five months ago) link

holy crap at that infield.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Tuesday, 12 March 2019 15:39 (five months ago) link

ok - draft order and keepers are set. please check your teams and make sure everything looks right.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Tuesday, 12 March 2019 17:09 (five months ago) link

where does the draft order show up?

na (NA), Tuesday, 12 March 2019 17:24 (five months ago) link

from the main page > draft >> draft results

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Tuesday, 12 March 2019 17:25 (five months ago) link

!!! No snake draft though really?

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Tuesday, 12 March 2019 17:27 (five months ago) link

Oh it is, whoopsies.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Tuesday, 12 March 2019 17:27 (five months ago) link

damn im in the 13th/1st swing position~
& i think i am going to be autodrafting most likely O_o

johnny crunch, Tuesday, 12 March 2019 17:33 (five months ago) link

Same, I can't wait to end up with 5 catchers and no shortstop.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Tuesday, 12 March 2019 17:43 (five months ago) link

you've got the first overall pick and three extra rounds to yourself – pre-rank like like a mad man!

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Tuesday, 12 March 2019 17:57 (five months ago) link

is there a way in Yahoo to see all players in one list, except for keepers, sorted by some kind of preseason ranking? i can see how to view batters and pitchers separately but that doesn't help in trying to guess who'll be available each time i come up in the draft. in case you can't tell i'm VERY bored at work today

na (NA), Tuesday, 12 March 2019 20:05 (five months ago) link

yeah but you can't see batters and pitchers together

na (NA), Tuesday, 12 March 2019 20:15 (five months ago) link

i was hoping to see the list we see on draft day essentially. but OH WELL

na (NA), Tuesday, 12 March 2019 20:16 (five months ago) link

ah, ya. no idea.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Tuesday, 12 March 2019 20:45 (five months ago) link

TWO of my best keepers on the ringer's list of fantasy players to avoid

na (NA), Friday, 15 March 2019 19:15 (five months ago) link

One of my keepers some of you people laughed at for even considering may well be the closer for your team, NA.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Friday, 15 March 2019 19:47 (five months ago) link

your IRL team that is.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Friday, 15 March 2019 19:47 (five months ago) link

good luck with that

na (NA), Friday, 15 March 2019 19:51 (five months ago) link
