    this is just them being as lazy and short sighted as they are with their lack of prospects in the system.

    this better just be a short term glitch, as you used to have option on the * link to go with white or dark backgrounds, this white stuff is awful and hurts your eyes and makes it hard to see what's going on.

    sorry, i forgot, it's a H2H ONE WIN league (so each week the guy who wins most of the 18 categories gets a win/loss/tie)

  • espn league. you HAVE to keep 2 SP, 2 RP, 1 of 1B/3B, 1 of 2B/SS, 2 OF, and the last keeper can either be a prospect (less than 150 at bats or 50 innings pitched) or another position you haven't kept one of yet.
    Roster:
    C j.castro
    1B A-Gon
    2B Kendrick
    3B chisenhall
    SS alexi ram
    MI -
    CI -howard
    LF gardner
    CF a.jones
    RF braun
    OF ozuna
    util ortiz
    BN loney/asche/d'arnaud
    SP weaver/arrieta/liriano/niese/leake/hudson/w.chen
    RP casilla/feliz/clippard/a.miller
    Not the best keepers (can only keep 2 of those OF), i'd probably make a prospect one of them. If interested goodfold2. that is a yahoo email. thanks.

    When is Yahoo going to get in the keeper game?

    worst part is for those of us ahead of the curve, other idiots will get to waiver them same as anybody else, your prior interest/knowledge of these players doesn't help.

    there's literally dozens of guys in top 300 lists they don't care to add till the day they play in MLB, and the worst part is there's no rhyme or reason as to which get in and which don't. I'm guessing the people they pay to do this don't get paid more for doing more/better work. I'd do it for free if they let me.

  • This is roster. you'll be able to keep 4 per year, no round cost. these extra stats: doubles/triples/walks/strikeouts/assists/outfield assists/OPS/net steals (instead of steals)/innings pitched/walks/losses/shutouts/home runs allowed/relief wins/relief losses/net saves and holds, these are in addition to normal 5X5 categories. roster is 2 C/1 each other hitting position (RF/LF/CF for OF's)/ 1 CI/ 1 MI, 1 util/ 5 SP/ 5 RP/ 2 P, 3 BN and 4 DL's.

    Shattenkirk out for weeks

    it's meant to make sure there isn't the type of collusion where one friend drops superstar just to watch his friend waiver them, it's a good idea, however, to fix this, change ALL IR slots to IR+ slots for next year in all your leagues, and convince any comishes to do the same, that will fix problem

    Who Wins?

    by Johnny Hanson Feb 3, 2015 11:52 AM
    Jason Jason Feb 4, 2015 11:15 AM Flag

    when i say "slip a little" notice how other 1st 3 round goalies (consensus) that have fallen off this year (quick and rask); their owners teams are clearly hurt by having drafted them. And when you only have 3 keepers effectively they need to be top 3 round type players, if you want your team to be competitive)

    Who Wins?

    by Johnny Hanson Feb 3, 2015 11:52 AM
    Jason Jason Feb 4, 2015 11:13 AM Flag

    You probably have better keepers than Rinne (he's good, vezina good this year, but he ain't young, and if he slips just a little you wouldn't even consider not taking a 4th round pick along with lesser goalie), So the value of grabbing a free 4th rounder for next year probably too good to pass up. Fleury straight up is crazy, Rinne's blown him away this year (unless you BOTH don't think Rinne is coming back soon, AND you are near playoffs, but not for sure in them).

  • 20 team dynasty H2H league with all Yahoo stats. start same as real life roster (4 of each forward position, 6 D, 1 goalie, can only own 2 active goalies at a time). 5 IR/ 5 IR+/ 5 NA slots, but can only keep up to 25 players per year (so each NA guy you keep takes away a real life active player to do it, till post draft). this roster
    C - crosby/turris/m.backlund (CGY)/mitchell/b.sutter
    LW -kunitz/burakovsky/horcoff/j.bailey
    RW -b.bennett/downie/hornqvist/d.jaskin
    D -letang/carlson/orpik/scandella/bortuzzo/despres/daley/d.pouliot
    G -fleury/gustavsson (stashed)
    If i do this trade Horcoff is the drop, clearly.

    IR's- malkin/wingels/dupuis/maata/ehrhoff
    NA's- perlini (ARI)/ kaspanen (PIT)/ mantha/fucale
    If i had more room to stash Mantha i'm thinking this might be harder, but i'm finding enough problems coming up with enough drops to make this 25 at most for next year already, so a big prospect might mean less to me. this team is clearly a top 5 team, and any draft picks it would have next year would be awful, as is. (also, not snake draft). Only likely drops are
    Mitchell (good for what he does, but it can be found early season in free agency)
    depres (good hits/blocks, but probably eventually loses job to maata)
    bortuzzo (possibly same thing as depres)
    jaskin (if he doesn't at some point do more than get hits, he is highly ranked prospect)
    2nd goalie (decent backups do exist in this league, earlier i owned kuemper when he was starter). A lot of the value of even owning good NA guys in this league is simply as trade bait (if you're team is good anyway, a weak team clearly would be better off keeping some of them over active players).

    I'm guessing this deal is slam dunk? After doing stats on it (this year game averages) i come out ahead in faceoffs (which i need/ goals (.23 per game more)/ PPP/SHP/hits, and pretty much everything except plus/minus and blocks (and i'm best team in league at blocks). Kelly seems like a slightly better Horcoff really.

    i've never played in one either; so if you are worried about being less versed in it than some, you'll be in the same boat as me, the comish. I really want to try one myself.

    staal or spezza?

    by Jason Jan 29, 2015 10:07 PM
    Jason Jason Feb 4, 2015 9:38 AM Flag

    yeah, even when spezza WAS on that line early is year he didn't do nearly anything. Only thing right now that he has massive edge on is faceoffs, and this is only due to J.Staal taking those now that he's on same line as Eric. I really never was a fan of either , but i took this team over mid last season and we've upped the keepers from 4-6. Spezza was one of the 4 keepers for this team preseason, as this team's offense isn't good. I just traded Rinne/1st rounder (really 7th round value since 6 keepers) for Tatar/H.Sedin/F.Andersen/8th rounder (really 14th round player value). The players i dropped were Komarov (terrible since Ovechkin injury, along with entire TOR) and some other schlubby players.
