Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
They do struggle! They would get the 24th rated guy instead of 8 & 17 etc. If you want them, pay for them in to trade throughout the year. Your point was to always have the choice to get the best player and now you're saying that they will struggle once they do? His does that make sense to you wanting Trout? Fantasy is a a numbers game and you should be able to win with who you've got.
John is trying to be sarcastic and making a point that makes no sense at all so I make a smart comment back. Teams are drafting players who won't be on the roster for several years and the majority never even play on the MLB team that drafted them. The draft order exists to create parity in the leagues. Neither of these reasons are applicable to fantasy sports.
And to your point about me needing Trout to win, that is not the case. But the team who does get Trout should have to pay an arm and a leg for him and struggle to fill other spots on his team. Not be able to come back and own the best guy in the 3rd round as well.
3 of my 4 leagues were auction -1 auction did not win and funny enough it was the league I owned Trout in. I owned Trout in 1 league and neither Miggy nor Trout in any other league including the standard draft I did.
Lots of good keeper choices there. I agree with just keeping one pitcher and yes it should be Sale. You have to keep Abreu, Gomez, Pence, Cano. Then I would say also keep Dickerson and Arenado. The last spot I'd probably give to Springer, but you could make an argument for Melky, Springer, Votto, or Han-Ram as well.
JIGGA, that's a sorry point, you don't know John or his leagues at all so why make a blind/false comment? There are so many faults in an auction draft as well.
It's called trading in standard drafts and being frequent on the wire. If you want the top players go ahead and trade for them by giving up a lot of early to mid round guys, leaving you with 2-3 top 15 guys and a waiver wire bottom of the team. Same irresponsible and sloppy results.
Also, if you're so good at fantasy, why do you need the top 6 guys to win? That point actually works against your 'skill' argument. I drafted Votto and Braun in the first round this year (12 & 13 overall) and traded them throughout the year actually only having 2 players on my team that I drafted. You shouldn't need the Trouts to win if you know players and are skilled. My best player at the end of my season was probably Jose Altuve or Anthony Rizzo (90th and 118th overall at draft time). Don't insult these people JIGGA and know the facts.
Keep 8, 12 team H2H, R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OPS, W, SV, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP
I have liked a 6-2 hitter pitcher split in the past but not sure I can justify keeping any other pitcher than Sale this year... Thoughts?

Nope sadly they did`nt even count a make up game the tiger`s and twins had to play a few years back so they only counts 161 games for the tiger`s and twins
LOL h2h dont count it`s a little kids game grow some ballz next year play 15-20 team roto league THEN YOU CAN COME ON HERE AND TALK ABOUT WINNING IF YOU DO !!
True there is strategy. I just feel that those in the front have a hands down advantage (I'd be curious to know how they finished in your league if they were competitive players) and you should be able to have the chance to own any player you want by strategy not luck of the draw. For example, if you have #5 pick there are 3-4 guys you have no chance to get. If you are #1 pick you will only get 1 guy in the top 20. The draft order basically creates your team although in the later rounds 5+ you can shake things up if you wanted.
Thanks for the offer but I really dislike leagues where you can miss out on the great hall of fame players like Trout and Miggy. Everyone should have a fair shot at them if you are willing to spend the coin in my opinion. Drawing the short end of the stick and ending up with the crawfords, ellsbury, fielder, harper, tulo, cargo, braun over the last 3 years is just not my cup of tee.
I'm not an NHL guy, thanks for the offer though. It's most likely a standard draft but it's a once in a year type league with this competition.
I will join if it is an auction draft. I don't like standard drafts as the skill of the draft drops dramatically. Will you join my NHL league auction draft for pros? The draft is Friday Night and will be stiff competition.
