Well, your talkin apples/oranges? You wanted Util spots, which is ANYBODY...and just about ANY 4th OF would be a better choice at Util then Andrus. But now if we're talkin SS, now your limiting the field...but there are several better options then Andrus at SS. Andrus is good for 1 THING SB, and this season , he's decided not to run, so he's not even worth that IMO!

Wins ARE arbitrary because it has no bearing on how a pitcher pitched. Last night, Shoemaker went 7 SO IP, got no decision....the game was decided in extras. Wins is a circumstance of who was on the mound when the game was decided, it really is no measurement of how well a pitcher pitches. QS is a more accurate measurement, because its measured against a standard..6IP-3ER. Also a QS is ONLY awarded to a SP IF he qualifies, regardless of what the competition does. A win is awarded once every game. I've seen pitchers throw 1 or 2 pitches, get 1 out, 1/3 IP ....and get the win? THAT's why I say its arbitrary.

Ummmm....did I misunderstand.....NO sir, you said your LAST Util spot is Elvis Andrus....well, you can have ANYBODY in the Util spot. Galvis is better as a SS if your looking at ONLY SS options, and you failed to mention Russell, Castro, Simmons, Crawford, X-Bo, (Hanley still has SS elig), need I go on.......

"Basically a starter could get a 1 for win and a 1 for a QS=2 W/QS. A reliever could still get 1 win. A SP could get one but not the other." Well, a starter IS an SP....and wins are really arbitrary anyway. Remember Cliff Lee? He opened the season against Texas a yr or 2 ago, got a W....gave up 7 ER...but he went 5IP, Philly scored 10. I hate that #$%$!

All things considered.....Rizzo plays home games in a hitter haven. While Goldy & A-Gon both in the same div....full of pitcher-friendly parks. If that's not enough, Cubs offer Riz more protection...who they gonna pitch around?

Castillo is the fastest Sox on the team, he should be leadoff, or hit 2nd behind Betts, till then, Castillo will continue to be under-utilized but I'd still get him and stash him if poss. Hardy & Hamilton have injury and other issues. Soo Choo is on the downside of his career and may have good streaks, but no consistency.He's good for bench or trade bait if he gets hot again.

To automate that within a browser would take way too much memory, way too much time, and probably crash your browser, making you swear at Yahoo, #$%$. The settings Yahoo provides are based on a standard public 5X5, they dont even discern between roto or H2H, which would also incorporate another set of rankings. Be happy with what you got....there isnt anybody who is better!

The prob's with ST are associated with the new pages format, ST now is more dependent on each users system memory (RAM). If your using an older MS OS (98,2K,XP) that is no longer supported, your pages wont load properly. Im told you must have a min of Win 7, w/2GB RAM (or 4GB RAM if your using the 64-bit version) and IE 9 to have the new format function properly. Yes its true what Sah says, using a 3rd party browser will solve some difficulties, but Chrome now uses more, so Chrome may not be suitable either. Mozilla, Opera, or Safari may be good choices. Im using the tech Preview of Win 10 with Edge/Spartan with 16GB of RAM and it works fine.

TBH, for every single, dishonest commissioner, there are 10 good ones. You dont hear about them because they have the same people in their leagues and are happy. I add 3 or 4 advisers who have co-commissioner rights, and are trustworthy people, to oversee and check on everything a commissioner does. The BEST advice I could give, is if a commish makes himself the SOLE authority, its a red flag! If its a long-time league, he'll trust others as co to oversee his and leagues actions. I have found my leagues work great with this system.

If your referring to the CCL (cant cut list) it is made up of the top-25 or top-50 players in the game based on o-rank. Those ranks don't change until the season ends. However, if he is on the mlb DL, you can just retain him and move him to the DL list.

It was funny when Davis hit his home run....no one was there to chase it down...the camera followed it as it rolled into the bathroom.LOL

This happens with every relief pitcher this season. The problem is the stats coming in, which is supplied by a vendor (STATTS Inc) then digitally converted to real-time stats you see on your stat-tracker...sometimes the abbreviation/definition gets messed in translation. The IRA that is being fed is raw data stating how many runners were on base when that pitcher entered. These are usually adjusted during the day changeover OR sometimes due to scoring changes,are adjusted by Thursday after the Sunday of the completed game week.
