    MY YEAR W/ BILLY HAMILTON ??

    by ROB Apr 22, 2016 11:12 PM

    billy went 3/0/0/3 174 this week. He is far from my biggest concern now. I lost 2-8 to the last place team and fell to 6th in standings- I do hav a 6 game lead on the guy in 7th. The 2 cats I won were SB and K's. My pitching staff is a mess and its mostly been mt RP's fault. I drafted a closer 5th 6th and 7th. - and they are all having their worst years. I drafted wacha 9th and carlos martinez 11th and they havent been the anchors i had hoped for.. 4.08 era and 1.28 whip as a team sux.
    on a bright note cano and kipnis caught fire when they joined my team.

    MY YEAR W/ BILLY HAMILTON ??

    by ROB Apr 22, 2016 11:12 PM

    took a 4-5-1 loss this week and am in 2nd place 6 games back of 1st w/ 550 win %. In 13 weeks Iv had 6 wins or more again me only once. Billy avg at 243. With dee gone , Im kinda stuck w/ billy -for better or worse. The only other guy on my team w/ 10 sb's is brett gardner and I may end up droppin him by playoffs. I would like to drop someone for another pitcher, but havent made up my mind between - Billy, gardner, Prince or rendon. I dropped joc pederson for prince a week ago and if he dont start hittin homers soon it will be him.

    II think billy heard u...he went 1/2 w 2 BB's r's and sb's yesterday. Billy is 60% owned, so a majority of yahoo owners disagree w/ u. If his manager would stop sitting him every 3.5 days he might just be able to get it going.

    Billy had a 2/0/1/1/ 190 week and I took a 4-5-1 loss- wich isint so bad considering my top 2 pix were susp 11/14 games this week.( dee and manny) and greg polanco missed the weekend. Iv got a competitive leeg, no team has won 60% or lost under 40% as of today. Im in 3rd 3.5 games back of 1st w/ 558 win %.

    this is the worst team iv had in years

    my catcher is ranked 450 and he's the 5th best catcher in MLB....My CI's are both top 100 but hitting a combined 215....A Rendon played well the 1st month but is regressing again.....3/5 Of's ranked outside top 200....Bruce will prob get traded...Wacha needs to pitch more consistent...Kimbrel ok, D Robertson is having a C+ year so far and Iv probably lost Rosenthall for the year- but havnt dropped yet.

    Prince Fielder and his 700th rank is still on my FA page.

    by ROB Apr 22, 2016 11:12 PM

    Billy ended up missing 8 days and his avg sits at a usable 263. Every time he breaks into the top 200 rank he has a reason to miss a few games. I had a 5-5 tie this week and am in 3rd- 3 games back of 1st w/ a 57-42-11 (568) record. Billy 62% owned dee 58%. If I dropped Billy today he would be the 3rd most owned on my FA page behind Prince F 77% and Mike brantley 74% ( both have cleared waivers)

    My offense is the same, I have picked up a few pitchers and my staff looks like this-

    Julio Tehran Tajuan Walker Carlos Rodon Ian Kennedy Carlos Martinez Mike Wacha Mike Leake Jaime Garcia Kimbrell,Robertson,Rosenthall and Seung Hwan Oh (in case rosey continues to fall apart) Jake Mcgee on my DL

  • Iv been unhappy w/ yahoo fantasy for a few years. Like most web companies, they are more worried about innovation than giving the customer what they like.

    The night before Billy eligible to come off 7 day DL and yahoo has had zero updates since day 1. I had to go to espn to find out he may not be ready. In this case no news was not good news. Good ol' yahoo.

    Took a 4-5-1 loss this week to fall 5 games back, still in 2nd w/ 575 win %. Billy caught fire at coors, but then kept it up till the concussion. Still hav faith real bad billy will become sweet william soon. Maybe THE pickup of the 2nd half. Billy 62% owned Dee 58%( half way point of susp )

    Saves and Holds

    by Wjmurphy Jun 8, 2016 1:54 PM

    I agree w/ having a reason to have set up men on the team, not a fan of adding holds. Not a big fan of %'s as a cat. The last time I ran a leeg I used...R/HR/RBI/SB/HITS......APPEARANCES /IP / W / SV/ K's.....and the 11th cat tie breaker was fielding %. I ran that for 5 yrs w/ diff teams each year and guys seamed to like it.

    Billy had fun at coors field this week, then went back to being Billy leaving his avg at 248. Billy 60% owned -Dee 58%.I won again this week but am 1.5 games out of 1st w/ a 589 win %. Still no panic...im on cruise control.

    I was amused to see so many yahoo owners pick up billy on thursday, AFTER he was already done w/ coors...the day to pick him up would have been the sunday BEFORE coors.

    by ROB Apr 22, 2016 11:12 PM

    I lost 4-5-1 this week and am tied for 1st w/ 594 win %. Billy has scored 2 runs in a game twice and had 2 SB's in a game twice this year while batting 227. Except my 4 inf's and polanco whole team has been bad for a few weeks. I hav #1 waiver and passed on justin upton this week, I also dropped Devon travis from my DL to waivers and the last place team got him. Billy 51% owned , Dee 58% If I drop bill today he would be 6th most owned guy on my leeg FA page. I still hav faith, but also #1 waiver-so if someone to good to pass up gets dropped...idk if id drop bill, dee, wellington castillo ( and go catcherless a while) or a SP
