  • MELEANCON BLEW A 3 run lead and gets no earned runs? Please yahoo fix this or I might lose due to your scoring blunder and be forced to ask for a refund. He gave up a hit to start the inning. Followed by an error which scored a run. then 2 hits in a run scoring both runners. How exactly does he not get at least one earned run on the day?

    Dispute over transaction moves in my league

    by Aaron Sep 9, 2013 2:35 PM

    First of all how is somebody you pick up at 1159 pm and drop at 1201 am on your team? Hes not on your team you did not draft him so how exactly is he on your team if you he held a roster spot for 2 minutes and has been added by a diff team every week. you just happened to get to him first this week. example. any bad pitcher whos playing a bad team.

  • I came up with this strategy a couple months back. ive tryed drafting all pitchers and closers. They always end up with better hitters and end up spamming the k's and wins anyways despite me having 9 amazing starters. So this year i tried this strategy. At the beg of the year i went 6 starters 6 relief and 11 batters. All 20-20 hitters.My goal was to take runs sb's and avg every week as well as era and whip. everything else is a toss up. But those 5 categories were basically a lock. Letting them have k's and wins because im not willing to spam and was trying to find a good approach at beating spammers without spamming. I already know spammers draft all hitters cuz there not worried about the pitching. So i did too. Only every pitcher i got had 200 k a year stuff despite the era aND EVERY RELIEVER or closer has 100 k a year stuff. I chose 6 relivers to balance out the era of the starting pitchers. I actually drafted jensen thinking he would close and just kept him all year. Giving me at least a chance at k's if everybody does well. This year ive placed 3rd. Won the 1st round. everybody left is a spammer. Im winning 5-4 on friday. Later I realized i needed a extra batter because i wanted to make sure i won hitting if i was gonna get spammed outta pitching. So i picked up scuturo thinking he could fill up an empty spot on tue thu and any day somebody sits. It actually worked wonders. People think k's and wins are so important. But they dont realize how often rbis runs home runs and sb's are won by a single point. every at bat counts. Its not often u win by a single k. although wins are very close. thats only 2 points your getting with spam while i squeeze out every extra at bat which can help me win any of the 5 off points. just a thought for the anti spammers and spammers alike. Your adding pitching but its only effective if you have a huge era lead or are so far out it doesnt matter! No skill involved what so ever. Only a desperate attempt to find a loop hole

  • For all of you who will say i should stream. Well i dont really have a spot worthy of dropping. I dont want to give anybody my players. I already had to drop kemp to fill my roster which is why i also have a problem with the dl. I had wright and kemp out at the same time. Forcing me to drop one to maximize my at bats per week. Which is why i think the dl list should be bumped up to 3. If I win this week and the 2nd seed wins. ill be forced to play matt kemp cuz he picked him up. My number 1 draft pick i never had any intentions of dropping ever. Back to the point. How can it make sense to stream like him if Ive already got an amazing era of 1.75 and know im risking ruining it just to keep up with his stream? So now your telling me I should be like him and stream. Knowing those players are not on my team i would never draft them but i have to pick them up and take the risk becuase theres no innings limit or innings min.which in my opinion should be 70 max 50min. theres only 7 games per week. thats 63 innnings. Why should a guy get to pitch 100 innings? Thats like a basketball team winning by 30 then they add a 5th quarter and make the other team sit and watch while the other team scores uncontested giving them the win. 3 adds per week total and should be made on sunday before the week starts. 3 guys on the dl. If you wanna make sure u got a guy hitting then stop having 10 batters. You wont have to worry about a guy getting hurt during the week and having nobody to put in. Same with pitchers. you can have 9. but should be forced to choose between starts. Not just spam 100 innings and have 85 k's. beating a guy who pitched 70 innings and got 84. Which is why i believe the strike outs should be changed to k per inning. Its not like we have a hit category it goes by avg. So why do we have a strike out category? K per innings. 50 inning min. 70 innings max. I know a lotta people wont agree. But its my idea of a fair realistic fantasy baseball league.

  • Its really unfair for somebody who has an excellent full roster without a weak roster spot. every position player & pitcher has value that a team in ur league can benefit & use against u. I have 12 batters. 2 on the west coast that are bench players. a back up for every position Venable and scuturo even catcher molina & rosario. When rosario or molina sit i usually have a guy on the west coast playing later i can punch in at utility if i take him out on time. On any givin day if anybody sits i will always have a guy ready to punch in at any position like a real baseball team. Giving me a full roster of 10 batters every single day with nobody on the bench maximizing my at bats. Every batter i draft can hit 10/20 hr and pick 10-20 bags giving me an solid balanced approach and chance to win every category on any given week.If a guy gets hurt during the year Ill have a solid guy ready to punch in without having to worry about finding a bum on the waiver wire because i have a solid back up at every position who can start on any team. Every tue & thur a few team have a day off & i always have a couple guys to put in. This year I started this strategy a couple months back & since then have had more at bats per week then any team i played. I have 7 solid 200 k a year pitchers & 4 amazing closers average 100 k's per season giving me a full 23 man roster. But you have to get lucky in the draft for example marte grilli gomez jensen in late rounds. and pick multi position players with 20-20 vision. Lets say i play a guy and only have 7 starters pitching and nobody pitching twice. I get 8 k's per start and 5 k's per closer giving me 70 innings with 84 k's and 5 wins & 1.75 era. H has has 9 starters 5 closers 10 batters common. 5 guys pitch on monday which will give him 14 starts to my 7. On saturday he has pitched 80 innings and only has 60 k's 4 wins. But he also has 6 adds and streams them. Beating me in k's and wins with 20 starts vs my 7 can somebody explain how thats fair?

    ask me anything and you will get expert advice

    by Uzi A Jun 6, 2008 1:29 PM

    LOL...expert?

  • what happened? does anybody have a link to the clip?

  • First of all. Has he won a league with this method? And if so...did he defend his title the following year? Until then hes just bloggin about nothing. I am a defending winner league champion going for 3 in a row. I have no lost since i created this strategy after i lost to a head to head streamer in 2k5. I draft the opposite of distler. I draft all batters. If i can...all 5 tool players. Draft your infield first and make sure u get a good 5 tool catcher. Your goal at the end of the draft is to have at least 7 5 tool player son your roster. My first year i tried this i had rollins, soriano, sizemore, cameron, byrnes, crawford. I beat my league 127 -59 or something. Have not even lost in a winner league since. This was the way my draft went this year. Rollins, upton, martin, lee, jones, hart, bay, damon and matusi. Then i start drafting pitchers. these are the pitchers i ended up with. M.cain, d.lowe, j.blanton, m.buehrle, a.pettitte, g.meche, o perez, arroyo, p martinez and randy johnson. I also have street and rauch as closers. As long as u have 2 healthy closer u will be fine. The goal is to beat streamers. Streamer will pick up as many pitchers as possible. This is why my 10 ptichers aproach is good. Not only will u beat the average chump who only keeps 5 pitchers during the year in k's and wins everytime. but when u finally do play that streamer. Your 10 pitchers will still give you a chance to take wins. Especially if a couple of em pitch twice. If u have good strike out guys like i do...u might even beat him in k's too. being hes only picking up bum pitchers off the waiver wire who dont get k's anyways. Make sure you dont have any bum pitchers though. Look for struggling guys on the waiver wire who are proven in the past. Even ian snell will do. he gets k's/ Thats why i have arroyo. he has had 9'ks 3 times this year. SOme of these guys are struggling but there all great pitchers who on any givin day can do just as good as the best guy in the league. meaning 10 k's with good era whip and a win. Every one of these pitchers can do that except buerhle. You will have a great chance of taking the 5 batting catagories too with all your 5 tool players. If u notice....none of my 5 tool players cant hit for power. its important to not get stuck with any juan pierres.. U want stolen base guys that also hit for power. 10 stolen bases a year minimum. 15 home run a year minimum. Now u have a chance to take a home run or stolen base a week with each player! Giving you points all acros the board every week! This year i started out bad. Was 15 games behind 500 and everybody was on my butt. But since then i have won 7-2 6-3 and this week i won 4-3. now im back within 2 games of the 6th place team. I struggled early becuase i had no randy. pedro, and rollins wa shurt. Since then ive been crushign everybody. Hope you guys who hate streamers find this usefull. i hate streamers

  • Member when i came in here and said bay was better then thome? member all you losers who said I was crazy? What u got to say now buddy? Bay today...2 runs 1 home run 3 rbis and a stolen base...how did thome do?...lol scrubs

    No...i would not take phillips unless he gave me extra baggage with it. But in your case i would becuase your outfield is straight. Upgrading at 2nd would drastically improve your team. Your starters are good. Relievers are good. Maybe trade those bait relievers for a good arm. Like halladay...maybe somebody slumpinglike sabathia or verlander...good luck bro
