Possible Rule Changes

- Should we stay with saves + holds or switch back to saves?
We are switching back to saves.

- The IP limit remained at 1,400 in 2019. Should we drop it to 1,300?
We are going to have a 500 IP limit, which would actually be a 1,350 IP limit.

- Should we add any extra IL spots due to Covid-19?
No additional IL spots will be added for this season.

- Should we switch from QS to wins?
We are switching to wins.

For transparency, all of the league votes can be seen on the Google Form that was sent to you via email (or on the ESPN league site for the QS vs. wins poll).

Metry Hit Men are back!

Not a fan of Saves + Holds. I thought it devalued pitching too much

I think 1400 IP is just right.

3/22 is fine by me.

re: 2020 Votto is a Catcher
By the way, I just spent some time with ESPN customer support on a live chat on the following questions I had from last sesaon.

Is there the ability to end our season one week earlier?

Not at this time. I explained the reasoning why I think the last week is kind of dumb (it is somewhat like Week 17 for fantasy football, but obviously not as extreme).

Are there any plans to put push notifications back on when players are not in the lineup?

Not at this time. What sucks is that they have this football, and I am almost positive that they did this in 2018 on the app, but I guess they do not have it for now.

Obviously, wholesale change won't come out of this chat, but it was at least nice to get the answer. Maybe it will change one day!

I'm in the same boat, except I can't do Monday 3/23 either. Would Tuesday 3/24 be an option?

Same here

On the rules, I liked SV+HD because it gave the 7th and 8th inning guys some value. I never understood why in fantasy baseball the 9th inning guys are the only relievers with any value.

Waters the category down too much.. but as long as we have 14+ teams I think its okay.

I think I might need to make the Google Form to find the dates. I will send it out tonight on my personal computer, and I might as well include the rule changes.

I will continue to update the first two posts of this thread as we go along.

Definitely want in again, depending on the draft date. Sunday evenings are tough for me.

I’m definitely back in! I’m the one who suggested doing saves + holds last year and honestly it was a bad idea. I think I’d rather go back to just saved. As far as Sunday March 22nd, I’m fine with that day

re: 2020 Votto is a Catcher
As for the draft date, I am going to list every day out and then you will be select every single day that works for you.

The Google Form I send out *should* capture everything. If necessary, then I can send a follow-up. I will notify the league when it is sent out, and if you do not receive it for some reason, then you can just send me your email, and then you will get it.

I like saves + holds, and I think we should drop innings pitched to 1300.

Will do. If anyone does not return, then you are in. The 14 team cap is not technically a hard limit, but it's nice having a league that is not so deep.

In.

Have no beefs with the setup.

Would prefer a Sunday night draft but could do a Monday if it comes down to it.

re: 2020 Votto is a Catcher
The Google Form has been sent out.

Please let me know if you did not receive an email from ESPN. I can send you the link via email.

This form should only take two minutes, but it is necessary to figure what day(s) you are available to draft + a couple votes on rule changes.

@gyno, if anyone drops, then I will send you the form.
