General Message Board
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.
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 )
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.
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
Tj is 100% correct. That is when the next day change starts, but not every leeg is complete 1 min later. It can take over an hour to complete every leeg yahoo has going ...ie free, pro private and custom leegs. If ur getting a guy who is still on waivers, make sure ur leeg has changed over or u could be charged a waiver claim.. There is a time stamp on ur leeg home page that tells u everyday when LAST STAT UPDATE was. It is just under the guy whos in last place.
Billy batted 3/0/0/1 .269 and started 6/7 games he played in this week, batting 1st or 2nd in all of them. He's on pace for 30 steals, not the 49+ I am hoping for. I won again this week and now hav a half game lead on my leeg with a 614 winning %. Billy batting 243, Team batting 261. I do hav to admit if my team was under 500, a good chance I would have to have dropped billy by now. I still have faith that as weather warms, so will his legs. Billy 56% owned ...D gordon 59%
It is the correct mailman. The name at the top of the page is YAHOO...not rotoworld or third party vendor. ALL problems are ultimately YAHOOs. Do u work for yahoo or is passing the buck for corporations a hobby?
I am winning now...to the tune of 62%.....If I drop billy today he would be the 4th most owned guy on my leegs FA page....behind Brock holt, AJ pollock and Matt weiters
Thanx to 1 rain out and a funeral billy only played 2 games this week He was 4/8 w/ 1 run scored. Billy hitting 235, team batting 258. I won 5-3-2 this week to remain in 2nd , 1 game back w/617 winning %. Still rollin w/ Rendon @2b and dee on bench. I dropped scooter G when he was activated off DL cuz I needed to stream some SP's. I hope the time off helped heal billys thumb issue. Still not thinking of dropping bill or dee.
After 6 weeks heres my current roster. *** means i drafted the guy-
C Wellington C
1B/OF Crush Davis***
2B/3B A Rendon
3B Todd Fraz***
SS/3B Manny Mac***
OF Greg Polanco***
OF Brett Gardner***
OF Joc Pederson***
UTIL/OF Jay Bruce***
UTIL/OF Billy H***
bench 2B dee gordon***
DL/2B Devon Travis
SP Carlos Martinez***
RP D Robertson***
RP Jake Mcgee
SP Tajuan Walker***
SP Julio Tehran
SP Yordano Ventura***
SP Ian Kennedy
SP Mike Leake
DL/ SP DeSciafani
I traded Gio Gonzalez to get Jake Mcgee 10 days ago.
#1 health/age.....#2 consistency....#3 team/stadium/division/league/spot in batting order - rotation.....myself, i do pay a lil more attention to guys drafted in first 3 rounds. Just becuz a guy was a monster in korea,japan or cuba does not mean he will b here....most arent.
I always draft C last because even if they dont get hurt ur not gonna get 600 ab's. When I hav a strong lineup and am facing a weeker lineup that week , I might play sans C : but when it comes to playoffs, I wouldnt punt the slot .
Of the 4 catchers u name I like Weiters...ONLY cuz he plays in hitters park and hitters park division. I actually drafted Grandal w/ last pik, but hav since got wellington castillo non waiver.
who to drop?...to many variables ....when I play H2H , I keep 1 batter on bench at most.
