re: Votto is a Catcher Season Long Thread


Sorry guys, this one is tough for me... A) I missed the draft, which just killed me in an auction league, and B) Yahoo Fantasy is blocked at work.

If we switch to Sportsline (not blocked) I'd be in again... if it stays on Yahoo then I probably won't be. Hard to really keep up when my primary computer time has the league inaccessible.

I know Sportsline is a little expensive though, so I doubt that will happen.

What about ESPN or any other common free site (if it exists)?

With a small pot (of course, the number could change), it would be silly IMO to spend such a large percentage on the site. This is something that can definitely be discussed.

Did I every bring up the idea of contracting roster size to 23? I do not know if those last two spots are necessary in a non-keeper.

Yeah, we have had email problems all year. I do not know why.

$218.09 - someone was taxed $1.91 on their entry fee because they did not send it as a gift. Hope that tiny loss in your profit is fine. If not, I can send you two bucks.

The money is sent.

Sportsline is the only one I've found that I can access at the office. I think it's because of the custom league URLs... which I know Yahoo does as well but I think the filters catch them on yahoo but not on sportsline. The yahoo ones still have /Fantasy in there I think.

Can we talk baseball since I suck at fantasy football?

This league going to exist this season? Any changes we need to discuss? Keeper?

Hell yea, I'm coming back to defend my crown.

I'd like to keep it non-keeper auction format.

It will stay this way. Switching to a keeper would be totally unfair because the values of players would totally unfair. I really the roto format, so I want to keep that the same as well.

This league will continue. I am sure we will have at least six or seven returning (the fantasy board regular who participate in other leagues on here).

Boo said that Yahoo fantasy sports are blocked at his work, so he will need the sites to switch if people are ok with that. I would want to keep it on a free site though, especially since the pot is not huge. He does need to let me what sites work for him though.

Pretty sure I asked questions about the league next year on the past couple pages, but I would need to tally up responses. Feel free to insert your opinion on anything on what to change or keep the same though.

Changes:

OBP is going to OPS. I played OPS for the first time this year in RW3R and loved it. (I have only played fantasy sports for like three or four years, so I was relatively new to it).

The 1,500 IP limit will reduced to the standard 1,400 IP limit.

Transactions will be unlimited. The whole point was prevent streaming, but I think that the innings limit handled that for all pitching cats. Also, I am pretty sure only MrWiseGuy approached the transactions limit.

It looks like FAAB was shot down and everyone is fine with the $25 entry fee.

The best news of all is that Barry will not get Trout for $3 again.

I prefer h2h, but already in 3 h2h leagues. I say we keep this roto.

re: Votto is a Catcher Season Long Thread


That was my logic. I like the change of pace. I was just afraid that only like two people wanted roto.

Anyone else opposed to roto outside of CE and maybe papz?

I'm fine even if it stays roto. With that said, roto requires a lot of maintence for such a small pot imo. I do think it'll be more competitive in a H2H also.

Up the entry fee to $50.

Switch to ESPN.

I'm not a big fan of QS, either. 4.50 ERA is meh. Just make it wins.

That's stuff I'd like to see changed. But just my opinion. I'm a go with the flow kind of guy.

The opposite arguement can be made when your SP throws an 8 inning gem & the closer blows it, or if your guy throws a gem w/ little to no run support.


I'd be fine w/ ESPN if they have auction, & yea lets up it to $50

I need to find a site where I can make polls, so I can make this "official".

$50 bucks is good by me.

Everything proposed will be put up for vote (as long as it is reasonable). Simple majority wins.
