Fav teams requirement?


Fav teams requirement?

I thought you needed at least 35 IP for a fav teams league? This guy has 33?

Team:
Boston Red Sox

Player:
RP Ryan Brasier (he was in minors for this roster when I made this board post)

Roster URL:
https://www.pennantchase.com/lgRost..
Note: I also did a test on this with a pitcher from my NYY roster in that same league. Esmil Rogers, a NYY pitcher from 2015, had 33 IP as well, but he was not eligible for the league when I tried to import him (as a test, I wasn't keeping him if by some chance it worked...). Any ideas why this happened?

Re: Fav teams requirement?

Well, you're right - he shouldn't be there. How he got there, I couldn't tell you. Sweet addition though.

Re: Re: Fav teams requirement?

That is weird. That team's owner has a username that kind of sounds like a witch. Maybe that has something to do with it? lol

Re: Fav teams requirement?

Also in this league with me - same Brasier glitch. User is in 8 leagues and has only played 3 games on the site. Weird.......

Re: Fav teams requirement?

I see what you mean I'm there too... This really is weird, since that isn't supposed to happen... 🤔

Re: Fav teams requirement?

Even stranger is the fact that I tried that once myself and I don't think it worked... So my question is what the heck changed?

Re: Fav teams requirement?

Gus, maybe he likes the Zelda video games? Lol

Re: Re: Fav teams requirement?

Well, as an experiment, I started a Redsox team - and couldn't draft Brasier (not enough IP).

Re: Fav teams requirement?

Odd... How the heck did he get Brasier then?

Re: Fav teams requirement?

You’re not listening. It’s witchery/wizardry, I tell you!!

Re: Re: Fav teams requirement?

Dear God Gus! Lol 🤣🤣

Re: Fav teams requirement?

In that exact same league, I do use the Red Sox, so as the 2018 year. + I did try to add Brasier, and it was refused for low amount of innings..., don't know if it is related... So strange...

Re: Fav teams requirement?

Got it!! It's a issue with the URL... Tested it myself in another fav teams league (Giants 1888, 1930 and 2015 still waiting for new owners...) If you notice, the URL updates with the last player you imported, so I tested it with 2015 outfielders Gregor Blanco and Nori Akoi and 1888 pitcher Bill George (ironically also 33 IP lol) I removed the first two, re-added Akoi, then edited the URL to add George and it actually added him! Of course I removed him afterwards... But at least I think I have our answer... Lol

Re: Re: Fav teams requirement?

@skooler while I think you are right, I don't think this user was that sneaky... I think there was a flaw with the "CPU Complete Draft" option that could have allowed players to be imported who didn't meet the minimum.

I've fixed both the CPU Complete issue and the URL issue skooler mentioned. Someone might want to test and validate both are fixed.

Thanks for pointing it out.

Re: Fav teams requirement?

So, if this player does not meet the minimum requirements to be in the League, why is he not removed, if he is ineligible? am I missing something?

And what does " messing with the URL" mean? -

Re: Fav teams requirement?

I can go through Fav teams leagues and remove players that need to be removed. Just have not had time yet. That’s what you’re missing. :)

Re: Re: Fav teams requirement?

Sincity the URL includes the player ID from the baseball reference database, meaning the URL could be used to add a player with, say, 1 hit in 2 at bats, or something like that... (Well not anymore since Guy fixed it lol)

Re: Fav teams requirement?

Ok, on both counts- i was just wondering, should have figured Guy would fix that..

Re: Re: Fav teams requirement?

I just deleted the player in question, he was still in that team's minors. I'll do a quick scan of the DB when I get a chance to see if other's have slipped through.
