Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 22 July 2019 14:20 (one month ago) link

can you drop someone so you have room on your roster? i'll de-drop eovaldi for you and maybe rename your team for lols.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 22 July 2019 14:28 (one month ago) link

Wait... so we can take mulligans now?

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Monday, 22 July 2019 16:41 (one month ago) link

he asked literally right away and i'd done the same for myself when i hit the wrong fucking button earlier, so ya.
everyone gets one.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 22 July 2019 17:26 (one month ago) link

but he is going to have to clear space first.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 22 July 2019 17:27 (one month ago) link

good to know...

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Monday, 22 July 2019 17:29 (one month ago) link

Okay I dropped Cain, who played one game for me in an effort to maybe get a steal, where i'm dead last. Collected I CS
Thanks Thermo for the help, and yes feel free to change my name to the Mulligans if it makes Al feel better

francisF, Monday, 22 July 2019 21:40 (one month ago) link

Collected 1* CS that should say

francisF, Monday, 22 July 2019 21:40 (one month ago) link

Apparently renaming teams is where my powers end.

Oh well. I don’t think “Nathan Eovaldi #1 Fan Club” would have fit anyways.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Tuesday, 23 July 2019 00:07 (one month ago) link

Nate Fellators, hello.
anyway, cheers thanks

francisF, Tuesday, 23 July 2019 00:35 (one month ago) link

Too bad I couldn't get him in time for the game today 40.50 ERA

francisF, Tuesday, 23 July 2019 02:15 (one month ago) link

Since I'm on a roll and to appease commish, my new name is Eovaldi: The 4 Seams (cept no punctuation is allowed i guess :/ )

francisF, Tuesday, 23 July 2019 09:18 (one month ago) link

it took me longer than it shd have, but i get that reference

johnny crunch, Tuesday, 23 July 2019 15:09 (one month ago) link

like most our teams – i got no clue.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Tuesday, 23 July 2019 15:26 (one month ago) link

Severino coming back as a RP. so no use to me at all this year.

open to offers if anyone wants five years of control on the dude, who will be back as a SP next year.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Thursday, 25 July 2019 16:33 (one month ago) link

I'm tempted by that ...

My hitters were a combined 1-26 last night but with a .342 OBP.

NoTimeBeforeTime, Saturday, 27 July 2019 08:24 (one month ago) link

I had 3 starters going, they went 1.77era 1.03whip 3k:bb 2w 2qs.
but one wasn't really a starter. rays had castillo opening for yarbrough, robbing me of a W and QS >:(

i managed to log a Zero in the standings for about the 250th time this year

francisF, Saturday, 27 July 2019 14:26 (one month ago) link

i mean the blue jays are my irl team and i'll champion them always, but do you really need to use an opener on them lol? don't you know what it's doing to Orel Halo//Eovaldi/The 4 Seams

francisF, Saturday, 27 July 2019 14:30 (one month ago) link

This is enraging! Every good day I have, my gains are matched by Javy! Ahhh, stop being so good, you SOB!

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Sunday, 28 July 2019 13:47 (one month ago) link

I'm destined for 3rd at this point, but holla keeps having himself some days and I'm sure af not ready to give up my podium spot and that has become my main objective, keeping holla down in his lowly 4th trash spot ;)

francisF, Monday, 29 July 2019 09:05 (one month ago) link

also – congrats to No Time... your other NA/keeper stash is coming up! your fantasy fortunes are now forever linked to the blue jays.
your next stash should the guy they just landed, Simeon-Woods-Richardson.

ha there's still more than 1/3 of the season left, i could still fuck it up

i am a little worried about running into the innings limits too early

na (NA), Monday, 29 July 2019 15:01 (one month ago) link

the day your team had yesterday made me want to cry.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 29 July 2019 15:31 (one month ago) link

holy shit dude – how do you even get to +21 in the OF?!

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 29 July 2019 15:51 (one month ago) link

i don't even know how to see those stats but i assume it's mostly thanks to christian yelich

na (NA), Monday, 29 July 2019 15:56 (one month ago) link

innings limits can't be viewed in the yahoo app. you gotta use a web browser and scroll below the roster/stats. (you may be in for a bumpy final week)

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 29 July 2019 15:59 (one month ago) link

oh i misunderstood what you meant. yeah i had a surplus of productive OFs so i was playing four OFs every day for a while there.

na (NA), Monday, 29 July 2019 16:08 (one month ago) link

ya, i was talking about innings – not production or value etc.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 29 July 2019 16:13 (one month ago) link

Sorry Thermo, I'm only willing to move Soto for Tatis Jr. or maybe Vlad Jr. with a decent plus. He's my namesake player but more importantly (and no offense...) I have plenty of banged up keepers who are out for the year with questionable future value.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Thursday, 1 August 2019 15:17 (one month ago) link

i have neither of those players so you must see the predicament i am in!

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Thursday, 1 August 2019 19:35 (one month ago) link

hey guys, where do i see the inning limits and where i sit for various categories again?

francisF, Friday, 2 August 2019 19:58 (one month ago) link

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Friday, 2 August 2019 20:34 (one month ago) link

cheers thx

francisF, Friday, 2 August 2019 21:52 (one month ago) link

How the fuck do you shoot up 7.5 points in one day this far into the season?! This shit is uncalled for.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 5 August 2019 13:17 (one month ago) link

it's getting tight at the top again. i've got one of my clumps of starting pitching tonight but any or all of them could blow up badly (darvish at philly, stroman at atlanta, aaron sanchez at oakland ... not feeling super confident about any of those)

na (NA), Thursday, 15 August 2019 19:36 (one month ago) link

Now I know why I did better last year (ignored keepers) versus this year (keepers, most of them on the IL): it's a lot easier to ride the FA/waiver wire when you have open slots that aren't cock-blocked by dudes with ruptured testicles, etc.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Thursday, 15 August 2019 20:18 (one month ago) link

"cock-blocked by dudes with ruptured testicles" quite an image

na (NA), Thursday, 15 August 2019 20:40 (one month ago) link

yes... hopefully the Toronto sleeper agents I deployed pitch "well" tonight.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Thursday, 15 August 2019 21:00 (one month ago) link

i feel like i made some solid decisions w/r/t waiver wire pickups which have allowed me to claw all the way up to 8th place though i'm reconsidering my Jorge Soler drop (not that he could help my terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad pitching).

omar little, Thursday, 15 August 2019 21:07 (one month ago) link

I'm happy to be leading the 2nd tier (aka 3rd) again. A couple days ago I was hit with -4 pts despite this pitching line: 17.1IP, 1W, 25K, 2.60ERA, 1.04WHIP, 5K:BB, 2QS, 3SV+H!
I have missed Scherzer big time, and I'll have to finish up without Encarnacion & Gallo, looks like. I switched back to Orel Halo

francisF, Friday, 16 August 2019 00:59 (one month ago) link

I had an offensive day for the ages yesterday: 13/17, 11 R, 9 HR, 13 RBI, .481 OBP, 1.519 SLG, 10 XBH. Set the league single day record for HR, XBH, and SLG. Unfortunately all this did was make up for my offense mostly crapping the bed for the past two weeks, but still, it was a fun day.

NoTimeBeforeTime, Friday, 16 August 2019 22:03 (one month ago) link

13/27, not 13/17

NoTimeBeforeTime, Friday, 16 August 2019 22:04 (one month ago) link

wow nice

johnny crunch, Saturday, 17 August 2019 00:30 (one month ago) link

9 homers in 13 hits sums up this nu juiced era

johnny crunch, Saturday, 17 August 2019 00:32 (one month ago) link

that's insane.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Saturday, 17 August 2019 17:00 (one month ago) link

9 HR and "only" 13 RBI also seems to symbolize these homer happy times.

NoTimeBeforeTime, Saturday, 17 August 2019 18:28 (one month ago) link

so Dakota Hudson was a good add!

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Tuesday, 20 August 2019 02:32 (one month ago) link

for the 2nd time this season, 4 of my 5 keepers are on the IL:

Andujar: labrum tear (Apr 1 -> EOS). 12 games played in 2019 for my #3 pick lol
Haniger: ruptured testicle (Jun 7 -> Sept?)
Mondesi: subluxation of shoulder (Jul 16 -> Sept?). Still #2 in SBs lol!
Marquez: arm inflamation (Aug 26 -> ?)

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Monday, 26 August 2019 19:43 (three weeks ago) link

two weeks pass...

i know that given my position it's gauche to complain about this, but javy baez and christian yelich are now both out for the rest of the season but neither are on the DL, so i can't DL them to make room for replacements, and they're both keeper-eligible so i'm not going to drop them

na (NA), Wednesday, 11 September 2019 12:50 (one week ago) link

Lol, that's been most of my season my dude. Welcome to the club.
