jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 9/19/2020 4:40 AM: That was last year's one game playoff. I forgot to erase prior to starting season. Have Guy working on rolling it back. Well get started w playoffs after that.
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 9/17/2020 1:10 PM: Bueller? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?
krtyler11 (Tigers) at 9/9/2020 9:48 AM: Why the extra game between Oakland and Detroit?
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 9/5/2020 9:04 AM: Welp, little excitement with this pennant chase. Although LCS homefield still up for grabs..
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 9/3/2020 5:01 PM: Oakland and Detroit have clinched playoff berths....Pirates and Giants close to locking up both NL spots.
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 9/3/2020 4:59 PM: 13 left to play..
jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 9/2/2020 12:56 PM: Swept by the damn Giants. Only 4 up....
Pasteeater3 (Dodgers) at 8/28/2020 3:10 AM: My horrific Dodgers actually have 5 All-Stars. LOL
jimgriddy (Reds) at 8/23/2020 7:38 AM: seems to work.
jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 8/22/2020 4:27 PM: I CPU select, and then try to be very honest with whom has the best rates vs. AB/IP amongst whom and picking them.
jimgriddy (Reds) at 8/22/2020 6:54 AM: Reds actually got 4
jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 8/18/2020 6:26 PM: 8 for the Bucs.
skooler1 (Phillies) at 8/16/2020 7:17 PM: Showing off again, eh? πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 8/16/2020 10:21 AM: I only got 12 πŸ‘€
skooler1 (Phillies) at 8/16/2020 8:00 AM: Ugh... Anyone else get just one measly All Star? Lol
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 8/13/2020 8:53 PM: CPU AS's granted. I'll be choosing a few more for each league...
BaltimoreChop (Orioles) at 8/11/2020 7:56 PM: Standings aren't listening to the power rankings
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 8/10/2020 1:04 PM: Day 83 was granted on time, after next game marks ASB. We will pause SIMs, and All-Stars will be selected.
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 8/5/2020 7:31 AM: Al Simmons injured - again !! This makes 20 games out for him. He has an EN of 12 and has almost 600 PA.
jimgriddy (Reds) at 8/2/2020 6:40 AM: thats ok. I don't even know how to do that
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 7/29/2020 7:03 PM: I also suck at crossing days off granted off html style. They get granted though. Lol
skooler1 (Phillies) at 7/29/2020 8:10 AM: For what it's worth, it took me several days after joining to find out myself... Lol
BaltimoreChop (Orioles) at 7/28/2020 6:35 PM: Ha. Never knew rules were in the links section. No wonder my team is so mediocre.
jimgriddy (Reds) at 7/28/2020 6:42 AM: No worries Jay. Just trying to ge a grasp on things here. I know its a lot of work. Its tough when work gets busy and you run a league as involved as this. (I have 2) plus play in a handful. You're doing a great job. Thanks.
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 7/27/2020 11:49 PM: Sorry about that Jim, yes they are found under 'Links'...and tbh, Im pretty sure rookie tags are still from S1, and I've neglected to remove them. Since the beginning of this year, I've been alot more hit/miss with my PC time. Leagues still move, just a little slower (somehow I'm still running 4? 🀷) But I completely forgot I'd decided in 'Rules' writing that I'd be handing out numerous awards that will now need to be retroactively looked over and added whenever I get time... including ROY's as well...
jimgriddy (Reds) at 7/27/2020 7:30 AM: Sorry, Was never informed the rules were somewhere other than the rule page. bud.
skooler1 (Phillies) at 7/26/2020 4:26 PM: In the links tab, Official FB(L)A Rulebook. That is where the rules are at bud
jimgriddy (Reds) at 7/26/2020 2:37 PM: bring to figure out rules here. why are rookies tagged? do they get some special consideration ? Shouldn't we have a rules page?
skooler1 (Phillies) at 7/24/2020 6:13 AM: And the Giants hit 11 home runs COMBINED in those two games alone... Ugh lol
skooler1 (Phillies) at 7/24/2020 6:12 AM: Damn... A few games past it now, but my Phils suffered back to back 21-6 losses... I know my pitching staff is horrendously bad, but DAMN...........
skooler1 (Phillies) at 7/18/2020 2:46 PM: Same here..........
Pasteeater3 (Dodgers) at 7/18/2020 5:50 AM: Absolutely dreadful pitching by my Dodgers so far. Wow
skooler1 (Phillies) at 7/13/2020 12:45 PM: For Pete's sake! Bobby Abreu goes down for 13 games and we lose the 2nd game of the season. This is gonna be a LONG one in Philly... Ugh lol
skooler1 (Phillies) at 7/13/2020 12:44 PM: Good point... Lol
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 7/13/2020 7:27 AM: Don't care that I lost the opener - we're playing !!
skooler1 (Phillies) at 7/13/2020 6:50 AM: Typical, Phils take a 3-2 lead into the bottom of the 9th, blow the lead and lose in extra innings... Lol
skooler1 (Phillies) at 7/12/2020 8:10 AM: The suspense is killing us, Jay! Lol
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 7/12/2020 5:57 AM: Stop teasing us Jay !!!
Run4Fun2009 (Cardinals) at 7/11/2020 5:13 PM: Was opening day this past Friday or this coming Friday?
skooler1 (Phillies) at 7/8/2020 4:34 PM: I'd rather a younger version of Roy Hobbs!! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜πŸ˜‚
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 7/8/2020 7:10 AM: I would have rather got Roy Hobbs !!!!
krtyler11 (Tigers) at 7/8/2020 1:40 AM: I just noticed that plans for Season 91 is listed as TBD. That made me laugh a little - I'll be 91 by then :)
skooler1 (Phillies) at 7/7/2020 8:31 PM: Lol
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 7/7/2020 2:59 PM: RP ROY SMITH, Sheik...;)
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 7/7/2020 2:50 PM: Running it now. Gave last couple teams a shot at ranking...
skooler1 (Phillies) at 7/7/2020 8:41 AM: Looks like it wasn't run yet. Last one says it was ran on March 21... *shrugs*
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 7/7/2020 7:15 AM: so, who'd I get in the Supplemental draft?
skooler1 (Phillies) at 7/6/2020 5:26 PM: Pretty much... Lol
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 7/6/2020 5:04 PM: Just covering all the bases 😎😎
skooler1 (Phillies) at 7/5/2020 5:24 PM: Lol
skooler1 (Phillies) at 7/5/2020 5:23 PM: *If it was mentioned
skooler1 (Phillies) at 7/5/2020 5:23 PM: Very funny Jay, I didn't know how many rounds there would be... Ig it was mentioned before, I must have missed it πŸ˜πŸ˜‚
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 7/4/2020 11:20 AM: It's a 1-round Supplemental Draft...Skooler has 163 guys ranked. πŸ˜‚
bostonbever (Red Sox) at 7/2/2020 5:37 PM: Hey guys. Just joined. Im a bit busy tonight. but ill take a look at things in the morning
skooler1 (Phillies) at 7/2/2020 3:34 PM: Defense isn't a strength but as a DH option or a placeholder for an OF spot if needed, his offensive value should more than make up for the lesser defense
skooler1 (Phillies) at 7/2/2020 3:32 PM: Phils looking to get a quality upgrade in the bullpen (or rotation if I can manage). Veteran OF Lefty O'Doul is available for now. An aging veteran at 35 years old, but has a 99 Rank and still has a PLENTY of gas in the tank for a few more seasons
skooler1 (Phillies) at 7/2/2020 3:27 PM: Welcome Jim! Glad to have ya aboard! πŸ‘
jimgriddy (Reds) at 7/2/2020 9:36 AM: Thanks. Good to be here! There are many esteemed owners here. I figured you all needed someone to beat up on!
Pasteeater3 (Dodgers) at 7/2/2020 4:29 AM: Welcome JimGriddy!
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 7/1/2020 7:45 PM: Welcome new Reds owner JimGriddy!
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 7/1/2020 8:34 AM: The recommending owner here already that is.. Bucs looking for a quality SP. Have lots of offense to spare.
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 7/1/2020 8:32 AM: Still searching for BoSox and Reds owners...if ya know any vets who may be interested..and they stay thru season, I'll Grant an additional S2TF player to that owner, with choice of this year or next season.
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 6/30/2020 10:35 AM: Picked a couple of bats up - unless someone has a top RP to trade for a SP, I'm done for now.
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 6/26/2020 7:09 AM: See trade block - looking for LH power hitting OF/DH of appropriate value.
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 6/23/2020 7:37 PM: Looks like I'll be trimming BOS and CIN and checking their S2TF and potential SP/RP conversions..
skooler1 (Phillies) at 6/18/2020 4:25 PM: Thought the same until the beginning of last season, when I was talking to Jay about it via PM and he told me C Johnny Estrada was eligible to be switched to 2004. That made me realize that there were ways to benefit when the benefits were not exactly obvious
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 6/18/2020 4:09 PM: As one of my ex wives used to tell me "You are the dumbest smart person I've ever seen."
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 6/18/2020 4:09 PM: All I can say is "Duh".
Jayslater1223 (Reds) at 6/18/2020 3:29 PM: Nope. Sent ya rules .. Disregard Johnny Bench cut from Cincy. I far fingered that one. Lol
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 6/18/2020 3:19 PM: So because Blue only has 39 IP in '70, you skip to '71? I though you were out of luck if the next season wasn't eligable.
BaltimoreChop (Orioles) at 6/18/2020 7:06 AM: Oh. Switch to future. Got it.
BaltimoreChop (Orioles) at 6/18/2020 7:05 AM: What’s S2TF?
Pasteeater3 (Dodgers) at 6/17/2020 4:58 PM: Yeah, wish I was able to S2TF Eric Gagne in a couple of seasons!
skooler1 (Phillies) at 6/17/2020 10:08 AM: S*** thanks for telling him that Jay... πŸ˜‰πŸ˜πŸ˜‚
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 6/17/2020 8:31 AM: Blue is eligible for S2TF..not his '70 stats, but '71....
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 6/17/2020 7:31 AM: I couldn't bring myself to cut Vida Blue, even though he stinks. On the possitive side, he's only 19 !!
Baberuth21 (Giants) at 6/10/2020 8:59 PM: Thanks guys! I'm sure you'll both be right up there again next year
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 6/10/2020 8:18 PM: Four and out - congrats Giants !!!
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 6/10/2020 7:32 PM: Congrats to BabeRuth21 and a tough Giants squad, running the table from wire-to-wire..
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 6/6/2020 6:37 PM: Day off after G5's has been granted..
skooler1 (Phillies) at 6/4/2020 4:52 PM: Course, having the NL MVP in my lineup certainly helps lol
skooler1 (Phillies) at 6/4/2020 4:52 PM: Phils saw minor improvements here and there, but also some regression in other areas. Lost 2 more games than Season 1, but I am feeling optimistic since I feel that our positive results outweighed the negative ones...
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 6/1/2020 9:08 PM: We need a Reds owner as well...
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 6/1/2020 9:07 PM: A's get past Tigers, move on to date with Yankees in the AL... Giants host Bucs to start NLCS.
Pasteeater3 (Dodgers) at 5/31/2020 6:25 PM: Damned impressive effort by my Dodgers - from World Series champs to last place!
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 5/30/2020 8:03 PM: Tigers and A's separated by just 1 game with 1 to play. Can the A's force a tiebreaker ?
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 5/30/2020 8:02 PM: Yankee's clinch AL 'division'.
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 5/30/2020 1:32 PM: NL Slots long clinched. Bucs lose top SP for LCS. Both AL slots still up for grabs.
skooler1 (Phillies) at 5/30/2020 9:15 AM: Don't get me wrong, he is a good pitcher, but the low stamina is holding him back immensely
skooler1 (Phillies) at 5/30/2020 9:14 AM: And low stamina means he can't pitch late enough into games often enough to be credited with a win
skooler1 (Phillies) at 5/30/2020 9:12 AM: Looks like it's because of an extremely low stamina... 61 is particularly poor for a SP, which is the lone major drawback of using Hiller's '68 season
krtyler11 (Tigers) at 5/29/2020 11:08 AM: John Hiller 0-18 in his career so far!
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 5/24/2020 12:25 PM: So I just granted last 2 days off, sorry I missed one earlier.. Busy weekend..AL is ubertight, Cards have lost ground, and Holy smokes we're only 2 back from home field on the Giants..
Run4Fun2009 (Cardinals) at 5/23/2020 10:08 AM: Well I’ve fallen apart since McGwire’s long injury
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 5/22/2020 3:39 PM: AL is tighter than a mouse fart !!!
Run4Fun2009 (Cardinals) at 5/18/2020 7:14 PM: goodness...just can't close the gap between you and me Jay...just hovers at 4 games.
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 5/16/2020 10:23 AM: Additional AS's added...lil late posting.
BaltimoreChop (Orioles) at 5/14/2020 9:26 AM: Outhit my opponent 12-11 but lost, 10-3. Ugh.
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 5/10/2020 7:21 AM: The long layoff wasn't good for the A's - we've lost all 4 games since restarting !!
skooler1 (Phillies) at 5/4/2020 8:14 PM: No worries Jay, all good bud. Aren't I always telling you to go at a pace that works for you? Lol
Run4Fun2009 (Cardinals) at 5/3/2020 9:15 PM: Was just curious...hence why I asked
Pasteeater3 (Dodgers) at 5/3/2020 1:18 PM: All good, Jay!
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 5/3/2020 12:35 PM: You suck Jay - how dare you have a personal life !! πŸ˜‰
BaltimoreChop (Orioles) at 5/3/2020 8:55 AM: Glad you are taking care of things that matter first.
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 5/3/2020 6:09 AM: Been busy a few days now. I do apologize. To be quite honest to my fellow PC'ers..between work, then spending purposeful time w family, now yard work with spring arriving, Ive been wiped. I may finally get AS out for Experiment, I'm gonna CPU select here and get us moving again. And again tbh, I totally forgot we went on AS Break. Ive Been a cruddy Commish the past month or so..
Run4Fun2009 (Cardinals) at 5/2/2020 6:38 PM: How we doing in this league?
Run4Fun2009 (Cardinals) at 4/23/2020 12:17 PM: Right back in the playoff picture
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 4/22/2020 5:22 AM: Havemt marked off days off granted, but they have been granted at those times.
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 4/21/2020 10:48 AM: I'll say, Run..lotsa crooked numbers by your offense past couple weeks.
Run4Fun2009 (Cardinals) at 4/20/2020 7:48 PM: Cardinals starting to play some good ball as of late!
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 4/20/2020 10:29 AM: Day 69 day off was granted in time. I'm late w latest day off. Apologies, got quite busy over the weekend, weather was nice.
TexRangersWS14 (White Sox) at 4/17/2020 1:05 PM: Unfinished business from last season
TexRangersWS14 (White Sox) at 4/17/2020 1:05 PM: My poorly ranked White Sox are proving the CPU wrong again
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 4/16/2020 3:29 PM: Youre not the only one Sheik, Ive watched more for days off than my club. Two injury subs have been doing better than my normal starters well past their return dates, so I've left them in. Lol
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 4/16/2020 11:12 AM: Although, not paying attention seems to be working fine 😎
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 4/16/2020 11:11 AM: I just relized that I'm in 1st - need to pay more attention I guess .
skooler1 (Phillies) at 3/31/2020 7:44 AM: When I responded to run4fun with "same here" I meant the part about working all week... Sorry for the confusion, bud
skooler1 (Phillies) at 3/31/2020 7:43 AM: Jay, I work at Gerrity's on Keyser Ave. Grocery stores are still considered "essential" for the time being. ..
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 3/29/2020 4:39 PM: Ben Grieve is 3 for 25 - and all 3 hits are HR's.
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 3/28/2020 4:24 PM: Stay-in-place order added to our counties, Skooler1..
skooler1 (Phillies) at 3/28/2020 2:34 PM: Same here
Run4Fun2009 (Cardinals) at 3/27/2020 9:35 PM: We haven't shut down our State completely yet (schools = yes, businesses = not all of them)...still have work during the week.
skooler1 (Phillies) at 3/27/2020 6:02 PM: Amen!
BaltimoreChop (Orioles) at 3/27/2020 10:03 AM: League has remained full. In Jay we trust! Much tougher for some to balance everything during quarantine - young kids, kids doing online school, etc. Hang in there!
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 3/26/2020 7:16 AM: Everybody hanging in there?
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 3/24/2020 9:58 AM: Regular season for this league ended 12-24-19; three months ago. It's almost like a real baseball off-seasonπŸ˜‰
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 3/17/2020 6:33 PM: Yanks, Giants done. A's, Phils, Cards to go and we are ready to start. :)
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 3/17/2020 2:57 PM: DET, LAD, MIN done 11/16 done.
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 3/17/2020 2:50 PM: CLE done.
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 3/16/2020 7:22 PM: CWS and CIN Complete, 7/16.
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 3/15/2020 8:12 PM: BOS, CHC..5 of 16 done. Figured this is the quickest approach. Any FA picked up at or over 162 will be,subject to it as well.
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 3/15/2020 6:23 AM: Tons of the players over 162 Games are garbage FA. Decided to focus on players on team rosters for now...ATL, BAL, PIT done. I'll make my way through rest of league today so we can start in a couple days.
Goodfella (Yankees) at 3/10/2020 4:59 AM: Oh ok. Thanks
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 3/9/2020 6:07 PM: Age edits. You sent a msg stating you had none to report.
Goodfella (Yankees) at 3/9/2020 5:45 PM: Whats ae completed mean?
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 3/5/2020 1:51 PM: Down to just Tex (White Sox) needing to drop guys and we're ready to start S2..
skooler1 (Phillies) at 3/4/2020 4:36 AM: Makes sense lol
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 3/3/2020 6:25 PM: He means rescuing Rebuilders Paradise from Edgar and MLB 2024 from well, 3 diff commishes. 4th time Ive been interim Commish. In my defense, I had won 3 WS in a row and made 5 in 6 years. Can't let it fold. My Phillies are the most dominant team in the League. Lol
skooler1 (Phillies) at 3/3/2020 5:47 PM: Uh yeah this is solely Jay's creation. Joined up early on when he initially advertised for it, Josh... lol
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 3/3/2020 5:36 PM: Umm. I created this league, Josh?
littlereb (Braves) at 3/1/2020 12:59 PM: Thanks all. Looking forward to this league.
joshanddez (Red Sox) at 3/1/2020 7:10 AM: If the league doesn’t have a Yankee, a Mcvn, etc..., don’t join the league. I was going to throw my name in there but that would be a little too much. Lol
joshanddez (Red Sox) at 3/1/2020 7:08 AM: Real Deal for instance. You spend your time everywhere but there. That league has tons of talented GMs for you to beat.
joshanddez (Red Sox) at 3/1/2020 7:07 AM: I like criticizing everything. Sorry. Quit rescuing every damn league you are in Jay. Seriously. You are in too much. Who even knows why? It can’t be to run up the wins total. That would be dumb. When you have 50 ****ing leagues, you spread yourself too thin. Drop the sissy ass easy leagues that are run by twits and just find the good leagues.
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 3/1/2020 6:54 AM: Welcome Littlereb, Atlanta went ownerless last year, so all offseason tasks were performed for the Braves. If you're looking for Rules, theyre under 'Links'..
skooler1 (Phillies) at 3/1/2020 6:13 AM: Welcome littlereb!
littlereb (Reds) at 3/1/2020 1:45 AM: Hey all, just joined. Can I change to the Braves?
skooler1 (Phillies) at 2/29/2020 6:51 PM: Hey it's a good thing anyway, less work for Jay. He has enough to do as it is lol
skooler1 (Phillies) at 2/29/2020 6:50 PM: *shrugs*
skooler1 (Phillies) at 2/29/2020 6:50 PM: Agreed...
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 2/29/2020 5:49 AM: I'm a little surprised more haven't dropped out.
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 2/27/2020 12:16 PM: Grrrr. Need a Braves AND a Reds owner now. :/
krtyler11 (Tigers) at 2/26/2020 9:05 AM: Jay you are without a doubt the hardest working guy on PC. I recommend creating leagues that take less manual work
BaltimoreChop (Orioles) at 2/17/2020 11:00 AM: No doubt. Patience boys.
skooler1 (Phillies) at 2/17/2020 5:03 AM: Yes you probably are lol
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 2/16/2020 8:28 PM: C'mon, Ive made a ton of headway.. Along with running 4 leagues, Im rescuing 2 more..Hardest working guy on PC. ;)
skooler1 (Phillies) at 2/16/2020 2:30 PM: Actually I forgot about that lol πŸ˜‚
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 2/16/2020 7:15 AM: Considering the fact that the regular season ended on Christmas eve - yeah, no rush πŸ™„
skooler1 (Phillies) at 2/15/2020 7:54 PM: Alright Philly Phils drops are done and we are ready for whenever we get moving along. No rush though...
BaltimoreChop (Orioles) at 2/14/2020 8:41 PM: Cool. Thx.
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 2/14/2020 12:21 PM: No, I just had drops turned off while I did imports, removed duplicates...theyll be turned back on tonight...
BaltimoreChop (Orioles) at 2/13/2020 6:37 PM: Guess we have to cut rosters down to 25/40. Can’t cut on my own. Do we send a list in?
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 2/12/2020 11:04 PM: Still awaiting Age Edits from 7 owners...
skooler1 (Phillies) at 2/10/2020 4:15 AM: Err, by draft class I mean imports
skooler1 (Phillies) at 2/10/2020 4:14 AM: Oof, no Switch 2 the future eligible players in this draft class, at least if there are, I'm not seeing them...
krtyler11 (Tigers) at 2/4/2020 4:22 PM: ok i must've missed it, my bad - you could word it better - we're even ;)
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 2/4/2020 3:56 PM: I wrote all rules in one shot. Nothing was added on after league started. I will agree I should definitely word it differently.
krtyler11 (Tigers) at 2/4/2020 3:52 PM: it should say Starting pitchers with less than 150 innings will be doubled until they have 150 or more.
krtyler11 (Tigers) at 2/4/2020 3:50 PM: this also isn't clear "all SP's at 100-149 IP or lower will be doubled" - what happened was that you doubled stats until you reach 100-149 and then doubled again. But that's not what that says - so Luke Prokopec (who I thought was a great pick by CHW) went from 21 innings to 174.
krtyler11 (Tigers) at 2/4/2020 3:40 PM: yeah i see it now - but I don't think that was part of the initial rules
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 2/4/2020 3:26 PM: PROCEDURE FOR DOUBLING LOW AB/IP PLAYERS PRIOR TO PROGRESSIONS: With these niche leagues, I set the AB/IP limit fairly low to include more players and to generate some of those "unlikely superstars"..This also includes intentionally wanting there to be players with lower AB/IP to be hidden gems that owners can stash or capitalize on digging for in the FA bin. For Position Players : all players at 250-299 AB or lower will be doubled. All players with 300 or more AB will be left as is. For Starting Pitchers : all SP's at 100-149 IP or lower will be doubled. All players with 150 IP or more IP will be left as is. For Relief Pitchers : all RP's at 15-39 IP will be doubled. All players with 40 IP or more will be left as is. **All Doubling will take place prior to progressions during off-season
krtyler11 (Tigers) at 2/4/2020 3:20 PM: would have been nice to know about the stat doubling, tripling, quadrupling when the league started - would've changed who I kept and picked up. I picked up Tomo Ohka specifically because he has 69 IP and would progress faster. But now he magically has 282 IP!
Pasteeater3 (Dodgers) at 2/2/2020 10:15 AM: Thx Chop!
BaltimoreChop (Orioles) at 1/31/2020 7:15 PM: Congrats dodgers! Crazy game 7.
Texrangersws14 (White Sox) at 1/12/2020 12:20 PM: Been out of town, just now seeing results. 10-4 lead going into the 8th, that’s gonna sting a while. Congrats LAD, great season and great team, the CWS magic ran out
skooler1 (Phillies) at 1/12/2020 12:00 PM: Jay I have at least one player with low AB not doubled yet (SS Jimmy Rollins - 53 ABs is also his real life total in 2000)
Baberuth21 (Giants) at 1/12/2020 7:31 AM: Congrats paste! Good to see the team that knocked me out win it
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 1/10/2020 3:43 PM: Gonna get things cleaned up here over the weekend. Then it's everyone's favorite time in every offseason. Progressions. Believe I did all edits/doubling ? But I could be wrong. Will double check...
Pasteeater3 (Dodgers) at 1/9/2020 11:49 AM: Much appreciated, Jay! If nothing else I can say I won the league's first title!
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 1/9/2020 4:47 AM: Congrats Pasteater! Good season Tex! I'll send for ring, award trophies, etc later today.
Pasteeater3 (Dodgers) at 1/9/2020 2:36 AM: Thx Chop! And great series, CWS!
BaltimoreChop (Orioles) at 1/8/2020 8:21 PM: Congrats Dodgers!
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 1/8/2020 5:11 PM: Day off granted after G5..
TexRangersWS14 (White Sox) at 1/6/2020 6:09 PM: White Sox previous high for runs given up this season was 16, and that was in a win!
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 1/6/2020 6:02 PM: WS Day off granted after G2.
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 1/6/2020 5:19 PM: Great googly moogly.. Our first ever WS game echoed our wild first week....what a nutty game.
Pasteeater3 (Dodgers) at 1/6/2020 5:14 PM: Same to you, CWS!
Texrangersws14 (White Sox) at 1/6/2020 3:37 PM: Good luck LAD!
Pasteeater3 (Dodgers) at 1/6/2020 9:54 AM: Hopefully there won't be a simulated replay of that result here! (But that had to be cool to watch!)
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 1/6/2020 6:39 AM: I was 8 years old in 1959 when the Dodgers beat the Whitesox for their 1st Championship in Los Angeles. It's the 1st WS I remember watching on TV.
Pasteeater3 (Dodgers) at 1/6/2020 3:20 AM: Much appreciated, Baberuth...didn't think my team quite had that in it. I'll try to represent the NL well in the WS
Baberuth21 (Giants) at 1/5/2020 6:57 PM: Congrats paste, nice comeback
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 1/4/2020 6:32 PM: Sure are. Game 7 it is. Meanwhile, "lowly" ChiSox are WS-bound..,
Pasteeater3 (Dodgers) at 1/4/2020 6:10 PM: My Dodgers are at least giving the dominant Giants a run for the money
skooler1 (Phillies) at 1/3/2020 10:15 PM: Oops... My bad Jay... should've reread the rules before I mentioned that... Lol
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 1/3/2020 7:34 PM: So to recap, the 2nd, 3rd, and 5th worst clubs by preseason estimates made playoffs, and the 2nd worst holds a 3-1 lead... So the concept wasn't buried by "strongest teams dominating" by a long shot...
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 1/3/2020 1:21 PM: "Schedule will be 160 games. 112 games vs your same league (7 other teams x 16 games each) and 48 games vs. the opposite league (2 home and home 3-game series (6 total) vs. All 8 teams in the other league."... The math just worked easier. I plot these schedules out with nothing more than a pen and pad my friend. Lol
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 1/3/2020 1:18 PM: Skooler. Its a 160-game schedule buddy. The 4 teams with 2 extra games are the 4 playoff teams playing the 2 playoff games. Lol..,
skooler1 (Phillies) at 1/2/2020 9:46 PM: Here's what I meant to say, all corrections made: Hey Jay... Did you, or anyone else for that matter, notice that several teams only had 160 games played, as shown through their records? Ex. My Phillies team has a 74-86 record. It seems that 4 teams have all 162 but the rest, at my last count, are missing those other two...
skooler1 (Phillies) at 1/2/2020 9:43 PM: Ugh... The ONE time my autocorrect fails lol... Meant to say for that matter, not the gibberish that actually appeared πŸ˜‚
skooler1 (Phillies) at 1/2/2020 9:42 PM: Hey Jay... Did you, or anyone else for thatattet, notice that several teams only had 160 he's played, as shown through their records? Ex. My Phillies team has a 74-86 record. It seems that 4 teams have all 162 but the rest, at my last count, are missing those other two...
TexRangersWS14 (White Sox) at 12/31/2019 10:56 PM: CWS went 8-8 vs DET in regular season.........
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 12/27/2019 5:35 PM: Yup.. Power Rank never tells the WHOLE story..Still disappointed how these guys shriveled up when they needed to shut the door.
Texrangersws14 (White Sox) at 12/26/2019 10:55 PM: Given our preseason ranking, White Sox are thrilled to be where we are
Pasteeater3 (Dodgers) at 12/24/2019 1:59 PM: Good battling you, Jay... hopefully I'll have something for the Giants
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 12/24/2019 12:22 PM: Well we officially pissed away playoff spot to the Dodgers... I don't do that often..kudos to Pasta for sticking it out the whole way..
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 12/24/2019 6:29 AM: Im fully aware. I only use low cutoffs in these niche leagues, because Ive always enjoyed unlikely nobodies turning into studs, and some HoF's turning to dust..mixes everything up into a giant bag of WTF.
krtyler11 (Tigers) at 12/23/2019 9:58 PM: this is why you have a little more stringent innings pitched limits
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 12/23/2019 7:55 AM: And yes, the Giants look pretty impressive.
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 12/23/2019 7:54 AM: W'll be better next year ;-)
Pasteeater3 (Dodgers) at 12/23/2019 6:47 AM: Last place Reds are killing me...
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 12/23/2019 1:13 AM: Tigers close to clinching barring collapse. Giants proving that first FBLA title goes through the Polo Grounds.
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 12/23/2019 1:12 AM: Big 4 game set as Pirates and Dodgers do battle. Yanks/O's/White Sox all jockey for position.,
Pasteeater3 (Dodgers) at 12/20/2019 6:55 PM: I just wish my Dodgers were in the AL - I'd have that division under my foot.
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 12/20/2019 9:37 AM: And we are tied w the Dodgers as we lose 7 straight. Yikes.
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 12/18/2019 11:07 AM: A.L. race tighter than a frog's ass. And thats watertight. Lol
skooler1 (Phillies) at 12/12/2019 8:59 PM: And check out THEIR run differential. 222!
skooler1 (Phillies) at 12/12/2019 8:57 PM: Hey you guys over in the AL have it easy! You're all within 10 games of the leader, while over here in the NL, we have a Giants team that's dominating with a 17 game lead over the 2ND PLACE team and all 7 of us other than the Giants are forced to play 2nd fiddle! 😝
sheikyerboudi (Athletics) at 12/11/2019 9:59 AM: Yeah, I thought the A's would be around .500 this year but we've struggled.
krtyler11 (Tigers) at 12/11/2019 9:10 AM: The team with the top run differential in the American League is Oakland, and they're in last place. Can't say I've ever seen that.
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 12/10/2019 4:48 PM: Thanks Skooler.
skooler1 (Phillies) at 12/9/2019 1:40 PM: Jay I know its been tough for you to keep up with all your leagues, but just know I think you're doing a damn good job
TexRangersWS14 (White Sox) at 12/6/2019 9:09 PM: Wow the AL is separated by 7 games from top to bottom
Pasteeater3 (Dodgers) at 12/6/2019 4:30 AM: The lesser league is definitely dominating the daily highlights lately!
Jayslater1223 (Pirates) at 11/30/2019 4:43 PM: I may go through at end of season, and finish notes, since there isn't a ton of offseason work here.
