Favorite Team 1871-2018


Favorite Team 1871-2018

I'm just curious why the Red Sox and Dodgers were added to the 3 team limit. Personally I think only the Yankees should be on the 3 team limit and personally wouldn't care if they had 4 teams. I personally think adding the other 4 teams to this limitation isn't the best move. The questions becomes when are all the teams only going to be 3 teams at this point?

Re: Favorite Team 1871-2018

Pretty obvious why, because they had SO many great players in 2018 they became one of the powerhouses that with 4 seasons are almost unbeatable.

I posted awhile ago about how you don't even need a year before 2000 with Boston to dominate a 1871-PRESENT LEAGUE ! Lol

It was time...

Re: Favorite Team 1871-2018

I'm just not seeing these teams dominate in the leagues I'm in. I rarely use the Red Sox or Dodgers, so it's not like it effects me. I believe instead of limiting teams to 3 maybe it should have been increase some teams to 5 teams.

Re: Favorite Team 1871-2018

Exactly what @cubanlou said. Instead of limiting teams, why not give some teams 5 teams? The teams with a limit on them only have 3 teams to choose from and won't have enough good players depending on the years. The team that aren't as good could use an extra team in general and the teams with a limit could keep the use of 4 teams.

Re: Re: Favorite Team 1871-2018

You could give Tampa Bay 6 years and they would still barely be a competitor. It should not be possible for Jason Giambi to ground out to Jason Giambi and if you say only 1 team can can be represented in the league The Astro's , Yankees, and Red Sox would be swooped up and Leagues would never fill.

If you want to make favorite teams more competitive let each team pick their Teams and seasons (but keep the seasons a secret) and then do a random generated draft rank order- that way if there are 3 Red Sox teams only 1 gets Pedro Martinez in his best year.

That way the secondary teams might actually not need divine intervention to win, and in fact they might be more attractive to take because another owner can't hose you out of one of your best options.

Re: Favorite Team 1871-2018

If one is trying to win then you wouldn't take Tampa Bay to try to do it with, even if you used 10 teams. ....LOL

Re: Favorite Team 1871-2018

Jason Giambi has an evil twin with the same name and everything. He could ground out to him. You didn't know that? Lol

Re: Re: Favorite Team 1871-2018

I'd have no issue if he ground out to Jeremy Giambi :)

Re: Favorite Team 1871-2018

OK, I just entered a 53-64-17 Dodger team. Not much difference in offense, but you lose pitching. We'll see........

Thanks to 2018 and Blake Snell, I see both Papa and I managing to get the Rays to the Playoffs. Papa has even been to a few WS..

But for either of us, it's usually with the helps of a shrewd trade or two. ..You can build a pretty damn good pitching club with Tampa. But your offensive options are pretty tame compared to some clubs glut of offense.

Shiek's won a ring w KC (and a Kiermaier trade I may add)...

StormnGorman recently won with MIL, I see Shiek and I getting them to the playoffs with frequency now..

I can't wait to see who 2019 helps most....


Re: Favorite Team 1871-2018

I am in a league and have a very solid team in my opinion, but I just got swept 3 games to 0 games by the rays. I wouldn't complain to much about how terrible they are. I was with a team made up of Tigers from 4 different years. Including 1984. The next games after I got swept by them, I had to play la. It was a close game compared to the games against the rays. He had four teams to choose from with his la team, and he picked some good years, but he did worse than what the rays did.

Re: Favorite Team 1871-2018

I have beaten the dodgers, which I never did with the devil rays. I actually used the same pitcher to win as when I got demolished by the devil rays.
