A look inside the FCL:
Old Vin: Looks like I'm the first one here. What should I do for the next 32.5 hours?
Old Vin: Life for me is a riverboat fantasy
Fresh Meat: who sings that?
Fresh Meat: is it David Wilcox?
Old Vin: yep
Fresh Meat: man that guy could play the guitar. Seen him like many moons ago
Fresh Meat: live that is
Fresh Meat: going to try and keep up with you pros tonight
Old Vin: don't try too hard
Old Vin: Seriously, though, if I finished 6th in this league I would be happy.
Backdoor Sliders: Jharel Cotton has strained UCL, could be out for the season. FUCK! -- There goes my whole strategy...
Old Vin: Sorry
Fresh Meat: you are kidding right Backdoor!!
Backdoor Sliders: nope.
Backdoor Sliders: he really does have a strained UCL
Fresh Meat: no I meant about your whole strategy
Backdoor Sliders: oh, yeah -- that was totally a joke
Backdoor Sliders: although he would have been a good pick for the Razz league...
Fresh Meat: any tips for the newbie, besides pick before you get timed out, lol
Backdoor Sliders: new to RCLs, or to fantasy baseball overall?
Fresh Meat: new to RCLS and to live drafts somewhat
Fresh Meat: used to slow email drafts for few years
Old School Brother: draft some solid hitters, some solid starters, a closer or two, and try to be the first to claim guys off the waiver
Old School Brother: oh and def pony up the $20 for rudy's tools, they're amazing
Fresh Meat: have already done 3 other RCL leagues this year with mixed results
Backdoor Sliders: you're middle-ish in the sequence, which should help -- you'll have time to identify a few guys you're interested in for each pick
Fresh Meat: what does Rudy's tools do?
Backdoor Sliders: in this league, there will be more streaming than in most -- SPs and hitters on short-schedule days
Backdoor Sliders: decide whether you'll be up for that or not -- that will dictate how many SPs to draft, and how much to care about MI, last OF, Util, etc.
Fresh Meat: so I should be prepared for daily activity which will be new to me. Used to weekly leagues with weekly waivers
Backdoor Sliders: I'm a chronic rosterbator, but I know that's not for everyone. It's totally possible to compete without doing that, it's just a different strategy
Backdoor Sliders: In the past, I've only drafted 2-3 SPs. Now that there's IP limit, I'll probably draft 3 or 4
Fresh Meat: so you guys just draft 9 pitchers I am assuming and then waiver in and out of those
Backdoor Sliders: yup, with focus on handcuffs for now in case any of them stumble into closer role before the season starts
Backdoor Sliders: oh, actually I'll use my bench spots on MRs for now too. and if I didn't have to draft C or Util or MI, I wouldn't
Old School Brother: I took 6 starts in my last RCL, guys like corbin bundy and gausman just hoping that one of them surprises
Backdoor Sliders: it would be awesome if you were actually Grey or Rudy in disguise, trying to sucker us...
Fresh Meat: why do I sense that for most of you that catcher one of the last picks you make
Old School Brother: Rudy has two tools; Hittertron and streamonator. They both give you projections for that days hitters and pitchers based on a shit load of data. its impressive
Backdoor Sliders: I totally agree -- awesome tools
Fresh Meat: so the tools are more for in season management that for drafting?
Old School Brother: exactly
Fresh Meat: cool. will have to signup
Old School Brother: and more for streaming. Idea being you dedicate a decent portion of your team to rotating guys in and out based on their projections and who has a good chance of being good that day
Fresh Meat: and I am not Grey or Rudy!
Old School Brother: wether its a hitter playing in coors facing a shitty pitcher, or a pitching in a big park facing a bad lineup
Backdoor Sliders: and the projects are updated as lineups are set
Backdoor Sliders: er, projections
Old School Brother: it even takes into account the hitters history against that starter
Fresh Meat: I am from the Great White North (ie. Canada) near Toronto
Old School Brother: nice, ive never been to Canada. I'm down in Texas
Backdoor Sliders: another tip, while we're giving away all of our secrets: go to closermonkey.com and sign up
Old School Brother: oh ya, i use closermonkey too. I follow them on twitter and turn twitter notifications on
Fresh Meat: my spidey sense is telling me that you guys are more into closers and middle relievers than starters
Backdoor Sliders: yeah, I've been in some RCLs where SPs have fallen like crazy - but every group is a little different
Fresh Meat: this should be educational but definitely not applicable to the leagues I usually am involved in
Backdoor Sliders: and I'm still thinking about switch from GS-limit to IP-limit
Fresh Meat: yeah never heard of upper limit on IP
Fresh Meat: used to minimum IP
Backdoor Sliders: I've been in another league like that, but it didn't have daily transactions
Backdoor Sliders: I mean, with IP-limit
Fresh Meat: anyway thanks for all the fun so far
Fresh Meat: gotta do something and be back in bit
Backdoor Sliders: hey, glad to have you in the league!
Fresh Meat: thanks
Backdoor Sliders: yeah, dinnertime for me -- back in a bit...
Fresh Meat: the time is near!
Old Vin: Just finished a public league draft where I got Machado at 12 and Giancarlo at 13. Started another one and Stanton went at #2 while Altuve dropped to 5.
Old Vin: No help in prep for this draft, but I love doing the drafts.
The Great Knoche: Vin how many leagues you actually in?
Old Vin: Thinking how to answer that
Fresh Meat: that means too many
Old Vin: So far, 36 regular 12-team, but have open draft dates coming up. Also a dozen quirkier ones.
The Great Knoche: When I retire I hope to entertain myself as well as you do.
Old Vin: Maybe aim higher!
Fresh Meat: and my wife thinks I am addicted to this and I only do maybe 6-8 leagues, lol
over-nite sensation: Hi Guys glad to see you all. I'm Greg
Fresh Meat: Hi Greg. Why does that feel like an AA meeting??
Old Vin: Hey Greg, where you from?

over-nite sensation: AAA thats a hoot
Fresh Meat: that explains it!
The Great Knoche: First RCL Greg?
Oakmore Rockys: Pick 5. Kershaw, Kluber or Scherzer?
over-nite sensation: has anyone done a mock draft with fantrax. i didn't
over-nite sensation: first rcl this year
Oakmore Rockys: I haven't either. These pre-ranks are going to be challenging.
The Great Knoche: Sort by ADP. Gets a little easier to view where you're probably looking. At least early on.
Old Vin: Scherzer
The Great Knoche: Sale
over-nite sensation: out for quick smoke back in a few
Old Vin: You can sort by ADP, which is better
Old Vin: OK, see already mentioned
White Noise: What's up fellas?
Fresh Meat: Hey White Noise. U got the bottom turn which can be nice
Old Vin: That's my favorite
White Noise: Yeah I'm cool with it....hate those mid round picks
White Noise: until The Dick snipes me every time
Fresh Meat: I don't care for like 2 to 5 myself as seems so long for 2nd picks
Fresh Meat: but sure almost every position has its merits
Fresh Meat: curious to see how the first 5 or 6 picks go. Traditional or more radical!
White Noise: FCL....something has to happen
Fresh Meat: need 3 for full house
Backdoor Sliders: yeehaw! -- so who are we missing: Truss, Grimey, and Mr. The Dick -- I'm sure they'll be here...
Old Vin: I've done 1 other RCL, and it had all 12 present.
Old School Brother: Nick will, not sure about Grimey
Old School Brother: im sure matt will too
Backdoor Sliders: I'll be personally disappointed if we have no-show(s)
White Noise: I believe Nick is trying to tame his raging hard-on from his other draft he's doing right now
Old School Brother: sounds about right
The Great Knoche: BDOHL!
Backdoor Sliders: ???
The Great Knoche: Best Draft of his Life
Oakmore Rockys: I hear if you autopick you get 19 pitchers and 6 catchers
The Great Knoche: Other RCL had a no show and he preset about 60 picks...then he got all catchers
Backdoor Sliders: yeah, need to re-sort from "Score" to "ADP," at least
Old School Brother: we saw a verlander auto pick at #11
Fresh Meat: are we ready to rumble or what????
The Great Knoche: Odds on Grimey showing?
Old Vin: Pretty sure Truss would have preranked in case of emergency
Oakmore Rockys: picks one and two autopick and it's not trout then OverNite is going to be a happy camper
NtD: Best draft of all time
