holy crap at that infield.

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

where does the draft order show up?

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

!!! No snake draft though really?

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

Oh it is, whoopsies.

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

yeah but you can't see batters and pitchers together

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

ah, ya. no idea.

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

your IRL team that is.

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

good luck with that

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

Wait a sec... the draft is today?

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Sunday, 17 March 2019 18:37 (eight months ago) link

na (NA), Sunday, 17 March 2019 20:37 (eight months ago) link

no one on my team is predicted to hit more than 30 home runs :/

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Sunday, 17 March 2019 20:45 (eight months ago) link

its criminal that autodraft only gave me two (2) starting pitchers wtff

johnny crunch, Monday, 18 March 2019 00:05 (eight months ago) link

I have no idea how/why yahoo hasn’t been able to fix the thing.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 18 March 2019 00:08 (eight months ago) link

jesus. Half your team is relievers! They’re good ones at least, but I guess the yahoo auto brain saw no one was scooping them up (because we do sv+h I guess) and thought it was a great deal.
My other league is AL only, 10 team auction and whenever a team auto drafts, it’s a train wreck. Seems to have no awareness of how to properly fill out a team.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 18 March 2019 00:16 (eight months ago) link

Doesn't it just pick the highest ranked player in Yahoo's rankings, regardless of position?

NoTimeBeforeTime, Monday, 18 March 2019 04:02 (eight months ago) link

That would explain it.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 18 March 2019 04:33 (eight months ago) link

drafted somewhat drunk and after another draft that has completely different player pools (lots of keepers but different keepers; no pitchers; points league; head to head) and tried just for fun a spreadsheet i found online. i was so busy with the stupid spreadsheet that i forgot to pay attnetion to my team, and about halfway through the draft i gave up on the sheet and just started winging it. i think my team is probably awful?

LuvWilTeheranUsApart returns for another year of mediocrity. Updated team name pending if I can think of a new one (usually I can't).

C Yasmani Grandal
1B Anthony Rizzo (the captain, my veteran keeper in his final year with the team)
2B Robinson Cano
3B Matt Chapman
SS Alex Bregman
OF Michael Brantley
OF Stephen Piscotty
OF Hunter Renfroe
Util Mat Olson

BN Mitch Moreland
BN Shin-soo Choo
BN Garrett Hampson
BN Vladimir Guerrero Jr.
BN Bo Bichette

SP Jacob de Grom
SP Trevor Bauer
SP Kyle Freeland
SP Mike Fiers

SP-RP Ross Stripling
SP-RP Brad Peacock

RP Adam Ottavino
RP Pedro Strop

The good:

I didn't draft too many pitchers like I do every year.
I'm set for 2021-2023 with a core of Bichette, Vlad, and Bregman.
The SS/3B controversy between Bregman and Chapman (Bregman had to make the switch to SS when I drafted Chapman) should push them both to excel, much like with Jeter and A-Rod.
I've been alternating three bad years with three good ones for a decade in this league which means I'm due this year.

The bad:

Relief core is weak.
OF is sketchy.
My starters are fragile and/or might get eaten by Coors Field.

NoTimeBeforeTime, Tuesday, 19 March 2019 09:52 (eight months ago) link

you should change your name to the Oakland Athletics. because of all the Oakland Athletics.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Tuesday, 19 March 2019 13:48 (eight months ago) link

Nth-consecutive autodraft (with certain jerks hastily filtered out beforehand). Roster tidying imminent.

Probably no point in keeping this guy much longer.

Tigers just announced that Michael Fulmer has been recommended for Tommy John surgery after undergoing MRI and consulting with Dr. James Andrews. He's seeking a third opinion.
