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)

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.

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.

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

cheers thx

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)

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).

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.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Wednesday, 11 September 2019 15:44 (one week ago) link

I mean, different but same in the grand scheme.

na (NA), Friday, 13 September 2019 13:12 (one week ago) link

ugh nevermind failed brag

na (NA), Friday, 13 September 2019 13:12 (one week ago) link

i wish you could just upload pics directly to ilx. so i could more easily brag about my pitching line from last night.

na (NA), Friday, 13 September 2019 14:00 (one week ago) link

you'll just have to describe it to us as vividly as possible.
