Re: Fair or Not Fair Lineup manipulation.

Yes, I saw that. But the question boils down to this - are the rules of your league in this situation permissive, meaning you can have one player playing 1B, or mandatory that you must have one player playing 1B at all times? What your opponent is doing is saying "catcher is a crap position, it drag...

Re: Fair or Not Fair Lineup manipulation.

I believe what you are saying is that the person is not playing a catcher at all and is taking an additional player on a bench spot. It is not like he is playing an OF at Catcher. Your league rules could address this - something like "all positions must have a player at all times, even if (and it is...

Help! Dumpster fire season!

AL+NL, 12 teams, roto 5x5, redraft, team in signature. Horrible season on so many levels. Only one DL slot allowed, and I count eight players I have on DL. Currently 12th out of 12. Looking to at least partially address my flailing season. I think my staff ERA is about 5.6 - Dump any or all of the f...

Which side? 12 team redraft -

12 team, AL+NL, 5x5, Roto, Redraft, team in sig. Got a weak hitting OF - was drafting IF early. Dansby Swanson Tyler Glasnow Haniger or Adam Duvall Pomeranz I would drop Jorge Polanco or Gurriel to accommodate Swanson. Currently in 10th - thanks to Buxton, Story, lack of save opps for Aroldis, the B...

Neris/Benoit

Been watching Neris and took him in two leagues. He has looked very solid. Very unhappy to read that they were promoting Benoit over Neris. Happy for Benoit and his family, and he is decent, but why didn't Neris get the gig? I read one blurb alleging that they did not want to promote Neris for "cont...

Ralph type question - NL Only Prospects

NL only league, can you rank the following for their first 5 years in the majors? In this league, you can keep players until they lose rookie status, then a 5 year clock starts ticking. So who would be the best for the 5 year period following full time callup? I am picking third. I am debating betwe...

Re: Help! League rules need changing -

Thanks Grey - certainly an option. FAAB of course requires some period when FAAB operates - say, every week or every day or whatever. This league has operated with the ability to constantly claim, and you cannot run FAAB with constant or instant claiming - everyone will just bid $1 when the player i...

Help! League rules need changing -

Greetings all, Do not know where to ask this question, so I thought I would start here. I am in a league where the same guy has won three out of the last four years. Good for him. The league has operated using "whoever gets there first" claiming. Once the Yankees announce Gary Sanchez is coming up, ...
