Alright, so I decided to set up a JBW Baseball League. But, because of a less than 10 turn out, I've decided to open it up to EWNCW (and maybe others, but I assume most people are in either JBW or EWNCW anyway). Here's what's posted on the JBW website:

How many people would be interested in an EWN E-Fed Fantasy Baseball League? It'd be run off of Yahoo's system just for convince. If I can get some interest, then we'll start talking how to work it.

Invite: PM only

Roster
JBW
Rome
Jman
Rob
Rehmix
Broc
Dubs

EWNCW
AirBourne

Other
KJ Punk

Draft Style: Live (You can preset your preferences and the system will pick accordingly if you're not there).

Divisions: While the players are listed by E-Fed, unless I can rope in an even number of JBW and EWNCW (or other) players, we'll stick up Smackdown vs Raw style.

Style: Head-to-head Weekly. From Monday to Sunday, you're facing off with one other team. Whoever leads (accumulatively) in a category by the end of Sunday night EST takes the category. Whoever wins the most categories in a weekly matchup takes the win. So, if I beat Jman 3-2 in categories, I get 1 win and he gets one loss.

No takers? If people outside of EWNCW (or E-Feds in general) wanna play too, I'm more than happy to just make it the "EWN Baseball League" and split the divisions along Raw and Smackdown.

Alright--invite friends and what not. Even non-EWN people. I'm tempted to just nail it down at eight, but if anyone wants to invite someone else, go for it.

Screw it, we're stopping at 8--once Rob and Dubs sign up, I'll finalize the team list and start on the rivalries:

Rob-Rome
Air-KJPunk
Broc-Dubs
Jman-Rehmix

These aren't finalized and can easily be edited, but the Hat picked these pairings (on the first try too! No divisional overlap or nothing :D)

No. :( I'm scared of Rob--I think he'll be the second best team in the league (behind me). I wanted Broc to make it easy on me--oops.

Well I've only been watching MLB for like 2 years, so you might have it easy, lol. Won't know anywhere near as much there as I do with football. Still though, I expect to win by pure luck! :)

I can't wait for football--I expect to hit the 20 team limit. It's gonna be AWESOME (and terrible because I'll have to pad my team with scout team members most likely).

over 16 is a huge no no in Fantasy football. Think about it, how many starting QBs are in the NFL? 32, so if you have 20 teams, then some people will be left with one QB. 16 should always be the highest you go to.

There are a few options with for it on Yahoo, but I can't do anything until the team list is finalized. Even then I'll wait and see if people are happy with it and interested in doing it next year--then I/we will decide. Even now I'm stuck on how big the playoffs will be (4/6/8).

With only 8 people, 4 seems fair to me. 6 might work, but even then, only 2 teams end up missing, so I personally like 4.

8 creates no drama (expect maybe at the top for the coveted easy road, #1)

6 creates a lot of drama: Top 2 seeds (bye), #1 Seed (Easiest Road), and battles to avoid getting their asses kicked out.

4 creates the same amount of drama as 6, except the middle of the standings will battle it out. 6 allows in more people--I like 6 or 4 (although I like 4 better because Fantasy Bye Weeks are stupid).

Edit: I'm wrong--all teams would get to play in the playoffs, but the non "playoff" teams would get put in the consolation rounds! #7 and #8 would play to NOT be last I think.

No, it's completely fine--it's really easy for me to add in two more teams to my plans (or more, actually). There just weren't any sign ups since like... the day I started this thread, so I thought all the interested people had already seen it.

Yeah, I barely wander into the realms of the sports threads simply due to the lack of NHL discussion, and copious amounts of football threads. People don't realize that, on occasion, a gem comes out of this section, especially in fantasy terms (as I'm quite a serious fantasy hockey/ baseball/ soccer addict).

Daffy Duck's Finest is in and will have a rivalry with SEZ.

This'll make it 5 people a division, so how do you guys want the schedule? Here are two options:

1) 4 games against each Divisional Opponent (16) + 2 Rivalry (18) +1 against each remaining opponent (22)

OR

2) 5 against each Divisional Opponent (20) + 2 Rivalry (22)

Option 1 means you'll fight everyone at least once, 2 creates more mystery. However, #1 MIGHT be our only hope because, with odd divisional numbers, I need to find a way to make sure everyone has a match each week and rivalry matches will only fill 20 weeks worth.

Edit: Updated Rivalry list--

Rob-Rome
Air-KJPunk
Broc-Dubs
Jman-Rehmix
Daffy-SEZ

Week 1 looks like it'll be a rivalry week, so start trash talking >:]

We're going to go with a 6-team playoff--because that's the only one on Yahoo! that has a consolation bracket. Here's the skinny by seed:

Playoffs -
#1 - Bye Week, gets lowest seed opponent in round two.
#2 - Bye Week, gets other opponent.
#3 - Faces #6 in opening Round
#4 - Faces #5 in opening round.

Consolation-
#7 - Bye, lowest seed opponent second round
#8 - Bye
#9 - Faces #12 in opening
#10 - Faces #11 in opening

Special Games:

3rd Place Game -- Losers of Round 2 playoffs battle in Round 3
5th Place Game -- Losers of playing openers battle in Round 2
7th Place Game -- Consolation Finals
9th Place Game -- Same as 3rd Place, but for Consolation
11th Place Game -- Same as 5th Place, but for Consolation.

The two division winners are guaranteed spots, but not necessarily a seed. Seeds will be based on overall record and the playoffs don't give a damn what division you were in.

Edit: Oh, and if we play again next year, the playoff teams will be on Raw and the Consolation teams will be on Smackdown--A Show, Mutha*****!

I posted this on the message board, but:

Yahoo! can randomize the draft order for us early, so if people would prefer, I can get yahoo! to do the draft order ahead of time so people can plan their draft around their pick number (snaking order, of course).

Edit: Also, we CAN Trade draft picks, but iunno if everyone is going to be down to return next year (and I don't think we can ADD people if we carry info over--draft pick trades and keeper players basically). If everyone is down for it and don't mind this 12-man league staying, then I'll turn on trade draft picks.

I don't mind this being a keeper league for the next few years, but I would guess that some people might want in next year after the unsurprising success this league will be.
I also voted 'no' in the pre-determined draft positions. I want the first picks to be like the Royal Rumble - and surprise us on the day!

Also, could we discuss the draft time? Could we do it on Friday 23rd instead of 24th?

Plus, the guy might not even be ready to play opening day. But hey, if you want him to be the first pick of the draft, by all means, take him.

Rangers park is a hitters park from what I recall, but Saves only need a lead of 3, so he should get a lot of good situations. Plus all the other stadiums in that division (they play the MOST interdivisional games because the division is thin) are all pitcher friendly. He should be fine. You can check out projected stats on the My Team tab!

All true.

I'm happy to get rid of him, honestly. I had 6 OF eligible players. I needed more pitching (and I wanted Cahill more) than I needed Bryce in the wings.

Commissioner has to approve every trade. I can set it to let all the managers vote on whether to approve the trade or if it should be commissioner only. The problem I see with the managers is only 1/3rd of the managers have to veto the trade to shoot it down. 8 to 4 is a veto. That, to me, is insane. There's also the problem of not every person being able to log on in a timely fashion to cast votes if necessary. If people want to go this route, we'll try it.

The problem I see with the managers is only 1/3rd of the managers have to veto the trade to shoot it down. 8 to 4 is a veto. That, to me, is insane. There's also the problem of not every person being able to log on in a timely fashion to cast votes if necessary. If people want to go this route, we'll try it.

I'm not fussed. I trust your judgement as commissioner.

This better be a decent trade given the build up!

As for your outfielder, Trumbo isn't the worst player to have as 4th OF. And he'll probably do Ok to start the season, if he gets an everyday starting spot in the lineup.

Oh, Trumbo is a great back-up. Even if he doesn't start as often as I'd hope, we're taking 10+ dingers. The man has power. Another player on my bench might be able to earn some OF options after a week or two if he gets some starts.

It's Iffy. I've got 6 that are projected over or right around 20 Dingers. Someone WILL get injured and Hamilton is always a bit of a risk, so it's not set in stone. I should go bonkers, but hey. Honestly, I think my best stat will be AVG or Strikeouts (Pitching). But it's purely speculative.

I'm also worried about playing Rob. Jose Bautista is a complete stud. Pablo can rocket pitches out. Not to mention Kinsler and Young. Blah.

Thursday Night/Friday Morning Game Updates
With the weekend coming up, and thus only 3 more days for people to compile stats, here are how the games are currently going!

Roma Legionaries - 2
R(ob)'s Rabid Rats - 6

Rehmix Beats - 4
Jumping Jmen - 3

Airbourne Flyers - 2
Punk's Ice Cream Bars - 8

The Broc Stars - 1

The Raw Division is only leading 1 game, while the Smackdown Division leads 5. Of course, these stats are easily subject to change. As of tonight, every game has at least one stat still tied.

So Chase Utley is screwing me over, he went on the DL. Kyle Farnsworth did too. I'm moving Farnsworth down to the bench and putting McCarthy up there, and I'm moving Neil Walker from the utility to 2B, and then putting Soriano or M.Moreland in his spot.

I'm down 8-0. James Shield is getting rocked. Rob's team has hit 3 home runs today, already. It should be 4, but one of his players is on the bench. Said player hit a GRAND SLAM. I should be getting destroyed even worse than 8-0. Fuck me.

Okay, I'm not sure WHAT happened, maybe I fucked up somehow, but your record is, in fact, based on how many runs you win. I thought I had set it to 1-win a week, but apparently not. So, like how I'm sitting at 0-8 against R(ob), if this stands, I'll be 0-8-3 D:

Update: I have contacted Yahoo! about seeing if it's possible to change the score setting without redoing the draft. 22 games is a lot easier to manage than 242 as the current scoring system is.

Also: The last game of the weekend will have a big impact on the two games that are still within 1 run! It'll have a huge impact of standings AND which division takes Rivalry Week 1!

Sully
04-08-2012, 07:47 PM
It wouldn't be that big of a deal. Worst case scenario, we deal with it for the rest of the year. Then next year we'll start with new settings, and maybe even make it a keeper league.

Yeah, it's not THAT big of a problem. The system will keep track of everything anyway.

And the plan, if this league goes into next year, is 6 keepers. Depending on how Yahoo! does its Keepers, is either to switch to an Auction Draft/System (meh) or assign keepers to either their draft position from this year (1-year keeper) or increase it by 1 (2/3-year keeper) if applicable.

Edit: The fine people at Yahoo! Fantasy Sports just edited the system for me. The scoring system is officially 1-win a week. Most people won't care, but I think it's a lot better to deal with 22 than 242 (specially when it comes to possible ties). Have I ever mentioned how much I hate ties? And I wonder why I don't like non-World Cup soccer.

Week 1 is in the books! A few notes to hit:

1) Smackdown Division went 4-2, easily beating out the Raw Division in games. However, they barely outscored the Raw Division 31 to 30. Smackdown is off to a good start after the Rivalry Week. Raw will get a chance to even the score Week 7 & 8--until then, Divisional Games!

2) Props to the Dubs Wubs Wubs for posting the biggest win of the week, 10 to 1. The Wubs posted a lot of offensive league highs, ending up 1 or 2 in every catergory--running away with Steals (pun intended).

Enjoy Week 2!

If we do a keeper league, we should really have an entirely new draft for it. As opposed to using the people we drafted this year. That way we can actually draft for guys who can be good, instead of old guys that we'd only need for a year.

That's a fantastic point. How do you feel about auction, then? How does anyone else feel about it? It'll be a salary cap ($260) for the mixed league and people bid (auction style) on players--the CPU being able to do it too. That'd be the best way to monitor keepers are their price will increase based on keeper length.

On an unrelated note: The Jmen are pounding the Wubs Wubs 6-0 to start today :O How the mighty have fallen.

Ah ok, well basically he offered Moustakas and Jaime Garcia for Bonifacio and Johan Santana. In my opinion, Moustakas needs to wait a year at least to bloom whilst Garcia has been solid. But so has Santana, who has 13 Ks already I think, and Bonifacio will give me plenty of SBs and runs.

It's just a weird concidence--I've seen matches flux around all day. Mine went up to 9-2 at one point, I saw one at 5-4 too. One team is just dominating each match-up--like Rob just jumped all over you. It's kinda insane how many runs he's tallied. There is one, Jmen vs Wubs Wubs, that could easily sway the other way that widely--it's close, but Dubs is leading in most categories. Last week we had close ones and one complete track wreck, this week we're looking to have 4/5 good wins and one or two close ones. Just kinda happened.

Weekends are a little harder because more early games are played unlike the rest of the week. You CAN set your team days in advance. Like, rest of the season in advance. It'll tell you if that player's team is playing, so that gives you a better idea if they'll start.

Well, we've got a tie! What's the tiebreak?

A tie in the record o_o Seriously, I would love to thank you two for messing with the perfect harmony. (If you didn't tie, we'd be 4 2-0, 4 1-1, 4 0-2). Assholes.

Seriously though, you're both 1-0-1 now. Honestly, it's a bit of a blessing--if you tie with someone who has the same wins but no ties, you'll have one less loss, thus you'll win that small tiebreaker.

And no, I haven't checked up on this at all until now lol. I was wondering how everything was going because with all the baby stuff going on I actually kind of forgot. I only remembered one time a week ago because Romes posted about my team winning. I've gottne requests for trades but can't do anything from my work computer and by the time I get home I'm so fucking tired that I forget and have to wake up and go right back to work. 12hr and 16hr shift have been all I've been doing lately. I'm off of work for two and a half months starting on May 4th though so, all's fair then.

Sorry I've been a bastard with this thing but, with everything going on with me hopefully you all understand.

It's understandable.

Baseball is REALLY different than Football when it comes to Fantasy. For Football you just have to update it every week, while baseball you need to check it every single day. On top of that, the season is so much longer too. I'm not sure when we end, is it in August or September? I'm guessing September. That's a long time to have to update your team every day.

People are going to be fading in and out for sure. I'm going to try my best to stay updated every week, but I think even I will be busy. Especially during July and August when Football really starts up, I'll be hitting the weights and getting in shape. And then there's e-Fedding too, and people work...some people like me are in more then one league, but my other league I only have to put in the line-up once a week, and then I put in backups for when those people don't play. It's actually a lot simpler, but the site I use isn't user friendly at all.

Yeah, this is a LONG season (22 weeks + 3 Weeks of Playoffs). People will be checking in and out--I recommend that, if you know you're having problems getting on, setting one week at a time when you do get on. That way you can at least make sure you have players who have games that day for the week. But whatever works for you!

Week 2? Kapoot!

1) Congrats to Rehmix and KJ Punk for having our first tie! You buttheads! :D

2) Another congrats to KJ Punk for being the only person to lead a stat both weeks so far! Check out the record book to see if you lead a week OR you're leading for the season!

3) Another round of applause to KJ Punk and Rehmix for leading the league in Dingers. You guys went nuts in some of those stats (KJ Punk lead a lot of batting stats last week).

4) Also, The Broc Stars have the strongest schedule so far! Dubs Wubs Wubs have the weakest--another stat kept in the record book. Lulz. This is because both of Broc's two opponents so far, Dubs and Zero, are undefeated. Both of Dubs opponents, Broc and Jman, have yet to win. So, as you can see, this is based on pass-games, not your entire schedule.

Note: Currently, if two teams have not met but are tied in overall record, the tiebreaker is who created their team first. This will not be the case when all teams have played each other (and they will). This is why I'm #1--because my team was the first generated.
Good luck in Week III!

Edit: My favorite links--Head-to-Head Stats (http://baseball.fantasysports.yahoo.com/b1/42657/headtoheadstats) and the Record Book (http://baseball.fantasysports.yahoo.com/b1/42657/recordbook).

Head-to-Head lets you see your win-loss-tie record in each stat AND lets you see the overall totals of each stat by team. Wanna see where you rank in average ERA? This is your place.

Record Book lets you see several things. One is "League Statistics"--a smaller version of Head-to-Head. You can see who's the overall leader in each stat, but also who posted the largest/best single week performance. "Head-to-Head" tab is all about the competition and records. Wanna see who had the longest winning/losing streak, toughest schedule, or who's averaging the largest margin of victory? You'll love this tab! Last but not least, "Streaks". This tab tells you who was the best in each stat, for how long? It tells you the longest leading streak overall AND the current one. KJ Punk is the only person to lead a stat both weeks--RBIs. Right now, pretty much everyone has a claim to leading a stat one week or the other.

Double Edit: Moral conundrum. My opponent, Jman, has a spot open on his pitching rotation. I've noticed this before, I had thought he'd fix it. Now, the pitcher sitting on his bench is starting today. Should I move that pitcher to his starting rotation for him? I repeat: the spot is blank anyway, so if I do nothing, nothing changes. Should I, morally, use my powers to make roster changes like this one? Yeah, he might get Ks and a Win (RBIs, HRs, etc if it was a batter), but he might get a high ERA or WHIP and Jman might blame me for making the move as sabotage--I don't know what to do D:

The last two days the score has change from 5-4, 4-5, and 5-5. Finally it looks like I broke off and got the advantage with 7-4, but I remember the score looking something like that earlier in the match up going towards Zero's way.

Luckily we only have one day, and I'm fighting to end this SOB's winning streak.

Although, for the first two match ups I had, and the first day of this one, I finally realized I've been starting guys during days that they're not even playing or have a game. I'm fixing that now.

I have an interesting decision to make tonight, though. Cory Lubke (one of my starters) is facing the Phillies (my hometown team) at 8:35. Do I sit him so I don't have to root against my team, or do I pitch him against a terrible offense?

I had to pick between my catcher (who'd only appear in one of the two games the Rangers-Tigers play today) or my backup who starts today. I picked the back-up.

Yes, and imagine if Kyle Farnsworth wasn't injured, lol!

But you've also got guys in your line up who aren't playing today. Was it just an issue of not wanting to cut someone? The more people you have playing that day, the better chance you have of winning.

Even if you have to cut one of your bench guys to pick up a position, it helps. That's why I picked up Kurt Suzuki.

Although after I was done, I couldn't decide who I wanted to replace him with...if you look, I cut and added like...four guys, lol. I have no idea what I even had Mitch Moreland. That guy blows...I'm fine with Luke Scott.

Right now I finally took a lead for one of the batting stats, total bases, by 6.

But this thing, definitely match up of the week.

The sad thing for me is, I don't even think I can do anything to improve my batting, I think it's just Zero is too dominant with his players on that side of things. I just have to wait for my guys to heal.

Well, the Roma Legionaries are 3-0. It came down to one last at-bat, but unfortunately the Jmen couldn't pull it out. Wanna know how close it was? I was down 2-8 to enter the day. Here's my stat line for today's batting (I didn't make any ground in pitching):

Runs 6, HR 1, RBI 5, SB 2, TB 16, .417 Average.

Jman's line today:

Run 1, HR 0, RBI 3, SB 1, TB 5, .182 Average.

Seeing as I won TB by 2 and RBI by 1, you can see how my better Sunday played into this. Three more base hit singles by Jman's team and I would've lost. Of course, both of us had a lot of starters sitting on the bench because of Rainouts, so had those not have happened, this would've been a much different story.

So, yeah, Jman got a bad break here, but there are still 18 weeks to go--hopefully he can bounce back and contend for the Raw Title and a playoff spot! Jman, like Broc, have had the absolute WORST schedules to start the season--none of the three teams they have faced have lost a "game" yet (Coincidentally, both have played Rehmix and Dubs so far!). But the schedule will get more favorable for them in the next 3 weeks.

Well I'm put in a very tough position. I have so many players on bye this week. The two huge injuries I have aren't making it any easier either.

I wanted to pick up a 3rd baseman to replace Mark Reynolds who is on bye, but I just can't cut anyone else. Figures, the guys I have who can play more than one position, are all out at the same time.

So I'm just going to have to put Reynolds in anyways. One guy out won't make too much of a difference, hopefully I'll catch up later in the week.

2) Napoli Ever After blasted the most homers again.

3) Only two remain! In the match-up of the weak, the two last undefeated/untied teams go head-to-head for sole possession of the Raw division title. And on the Smackdown side, it is a two way jam at the top between Rehmix and Punk, the two teams that tied.

4) The two undefeated teams (Rome and Dubs) have the weakest schedule, while Jman has the strongest.


Roma Legionaries 6

Instead of the Overall Standings (Top 2 in Raw, Top 4 in Smackdown are in playoff spots), let's look at the best hitting and pitching teams! (Run Record is done by tallying up wins, losses, ties in each individual category for the first 3 weeks. By overall totals is complied by assigning points values to place in overall standings. 1st gets 12, 12th gets 1.)

Hitting
By Run Record: Dubs - 16-2-0
By Overall Totals: Rome - 67 out of 72 Total

Pitching
By Run Record: Sully 11-3-1 and Jman 11-4-0 (Tied for most wins)
By Overall Totals: Jman - 50 out of 60 Total.

Good luck this week!

Going up against an undefeated person for the second time in a row, I'm doing good at 7-3. Next week I get to take on ANOTHER undefeated person. We'll see if he's still undefeated though by the time I even get to him. Currently he's up two runs though.

Of the 4 teams still without a loss, one is losing (by 4), one is winning (by 2), and two are playing (6-3, currently). So at least one "undefeated" team will fall this week. Probably me :(

There's still a chance Rome. There's a lot of close categories there. You're only trailing 3 runs, and 3 home runs, and only one taken base. But you're also only up with one stolen base, and 2 saves.

You could also have a chance of bringing that WHIP down, or at least having his rise. Maybe a little of both?

It's not over....

It probably is though.

It probably is though.

I grabbed a pitcher who's pitching today against a shitty team to try and bring my WHIP down and it's working. I'm also trying to get 1 win or more to either tie that category or swing it my way as he doesn't have a single starter today where I (now) have two. We're also battling for SB, but I'm now leading and the Runs are REALLY close. As long as my team will hit ~300 today, I should have a great shot. No way in hell I'm winning RBIs, but Runs, HRs, and WHIP are all winnable with TB and SB being close as hell.

Edit: Also went out to get a good C to replace mine since he's sitting today. I'm probably overdoing it, but meh.

Double Edit: I'm also keeping an eye on Jman-Robareid and Broc-R(ob) as they're both close and involve two of the 3 teams without a win (The Flyers, the third team, have a big lead).

Sully

Yeah it's definitely not over, and if he's pitchers do bad in the WHIP category, and you do good, you can get that.

I was struggling a little bit with my line up on who to start. I had Kelly Johnson in the utility, but had to decide whether to put in Adam Dunn or A.J. Pierzynski, even going to consider putting them both in, and Kelly Johnson on the bench. It was then that I figured Johnson could be better then Neil Walker, so I put him in at the 2B spot.

Then I was like, wait...I'm wearing Walker's jersey, I can't bench him, lol. So I put him in at utility. THEN, I found it Nick Swisher could also be put in the OF spot, and I had actually just picked up some guy to fill in an OF spot. So I benched him, put Swisher in at outfield, put Jones in at 1B, and then put Walker and Pierzynski on utility. Worked out perfectly.

Anyways, I actually grabbed Pierzynski out of the Free Agents, and he's not doing too bad at all. I have Buster Posey as my stater, but I'm comfortable with Pierzynski going in on utility.

I'm looking for a 3B though, because Mark Reynolds is the only one I have.

I was gonna make some comments, then I realized you've got so many big leads in the categories you've got lol. I wish I had your batting average.

Edit: I'M LEADING 5-4! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!

Double Edit: I just had a closer blow my WHIP lead. Shit. Now I gotta stick in a pitcher against the "Going Going Gone" Rangers and hope for a low WHIP AND the Win (I can't catch ERA).

Altuve has produced for me, thank god for the pick-up. lol
And I thought my OF production would suffer with Morse's injury, but this week, it really hasn't.

Plus, all my pitchers this week posting a sub 4.50 ERA helps a ton!

It was the WHIP too...you got that WHIP down just right.

Wow...that's something alright. Definitely match up of the week. You also just got ahead with one more stolen base than Dubs.

Naw, you'll have a shot Daffy! I had to get an absolutely shit, shit, shit day from Dubs to win on Sunday. Seriously, his team went like 3/50 on the batting end.

Week 4? CAPUT!

1) Napoli and Zero smacked a grand total of 12 homers last week, tieing for the lead.

2) The Roman Legionaries sneak past the Dub Wubs Wubs to remain the last perfect team. The good news for the Dubs, though, is that no one in the Raw division got any closer.

3) For each perfect team, there's a team that just can't get off the ground--Broc Stars are sitting at 0-4. Hopefully they'll get it together against the Punks.

4) Jman keeps the toughest schedule, but Napoli has snuck in with the weakest!

5) Boo to Jman-Robareid who decided to TIE. LAME D:

Especially because most of our players don't have games, or are taking the Monday off to rest for the rest of the week. Mondays and Thursdays are always the most interesting because a lot of players and teams aren't playing.

On top of that, people with big players on the disabled list have to struggle with replacing guys who aren't starting, without releasing anyone important.

I usually have to deal with not putting anyone in that position. Yesterday I got sort of lucky with only having to not start three positions.

Yeah, that's mostly why Daffy's got such a large lead. Yes, he blew past me in all the batting stats, but I haven't had a pitcher appear in a game yet, so that's 5 runs I can't even qualify for yet--but that changes today >:]

I don't know about that... I have 2 more pitchers starting today. So, whilst you'll catch me in ERA and possibly WHIP, you need a K marathon. Don't mistake these words for confidence; I still believe the scoreline will be reversed come the end of the week. Think of yesterday as the Opening days for the Royals. Now for the losing streak...
