What the hell is going on? Hero to zero in one week. Possums has my number year after year. Now I have to try and battle Oak at his own game. Doesn't help when I leave to studs on the bench. 😡

Yes, you again.

I was hoping to see you in the final. Actually just happy to have made it through to the semi!

I'm off to a decent start, hope it continues.

Goof luck

Would love to see the Mets in the World Series. That would be both New York teams taken down in 2015 playoffs. A new meaning to the song New York, New York!

Let's go Blue Jays!

My wife was in Whitby last week. She tried poutine for the first time (at my request)...and wished she hadn't. biggrin.gif

She did say the people were really nice, though. smile.gif

She wasn't impressed with the gravy. That's the politest way of saying what she told me. biggrin.gif

And no, she doesn't really do baseball, although she does go to more games than me.

well i just got back from the Toronto fc match and had an order of Bombay poutine. If she didn't like gravy, probably wouldn't like curry sauce. But let me tell ya!

Well back in the finals again. Ft. Mudge really has a good team so 3 out of 4 is going to be really tough.

Posted by: pogophiles Sep 26 2015, 09:04 PM

Congrats tlaw, looks like you've got this. My hitting has gone completely cold this week. After going 3-39 yesterday, they've started today 1-17 and are now collectively hitting below the Mendoza line for the week. Oh well, was a good season anyway!

Posted by: The_General Sep 29 2015, 11:38 AM

Well done tlaw on the win and unlucky to Pogo. thumbsup.gif I'm still bitter with juice - this was my year! angry.gif tongue.gif

Posted by: tlaw4025 Sep 29 2015, 02:13 PM

Thanks for the congrats. I really was fortunate because I really thought Pogo had the best team (and especially hitters) and that was the part that really let him down. That had to be by far the worst hitting week he has had. That just shows how much luck is envolved in winning this. Just the week before he batted .291 and had 11 home runs and 45 rbis. It's just the way this crazy game goes sometimes. Again I'd like to think everyone for another fun year of fantasy baseball. I really do enjoy keeping up with this team every week and part of me will miss it. (Part of me is also tired of looking at it every night) But I really like my team and hopefully Buxton and Baez will turn out to be promising players next year. Now it's time for some real playoff baseball. Looks like it will be exciting (Even though the Braves sucked this year and won't be there).


Posted by: tigerjames Sep 29 2015, 03:48 PM

Well done Tlaw thumbsup.gif wink.gif


Im sick of being uncompetitive....Next year I would like a "normal" draft.........every player in the draft....none of this keep 6.......it means every year Im fighting a losing battle....

It was. Those were season lows for runs, home runs, RBIs, AVE, OBP, and SLG, and the drop from my previous low marks this season for RBIs, AVE, OBP, and SLG were huge. Apologies for not putting up more of a fight tlaw!

Also, can people say whether they are happy with the 6 keeper rule. From the above it looks like TJ's not, but I worry he'd still be uncompetitive even with a normal draft. sad.gif wink.gif tongue.gif

So I'm in...and I'm happy with the 6 keeper rule (I would be!). wink.gif

I'm in. I'm fine with the 6 keepers, but if everyone wants a reset i'm cool also. laugh.gif Typical Canadian answer.

Check your emails! I opened the league up!

As for the keepers, I'm all for keeping 6. I've taken what little time I've had over the last few years to build the base I have. I have no desire to redraft and attempt to mold my team all over again.

In again.

I'm with TJ and meant to post this way earlier...I'd prefer to ditch the keeper format too. Although I realize I'm in the minority. I still enjoy playing either way. If it is a keeper, 6 is fine with me.

Live draft this year?

Posted by: tigerjames Feb 20 2016, 11:58 PM

so far it looks like 2 for and 2 against and 2 either way... rolleyes.gif

surely any comp any draft must start equally ?...trying to get votes rolleyes.gif

Posted by: The_OMB Feb 21 2016, 12:12 AM

Honestly, the only reason I'd be willing to go with a standard league draft is simply to avoid the hassle of the offline draft. But whatever...

Posted by: tlaw4025 Feb 21 2016, 12:22 AM

I vote to keep 6. But you knew that I would. I like my core. I've become quite attached to them.

Does Yahoo support live drafts for Keeper leagues? I figured they would, honestly I wouldn't see why they don't.

Posted by: The_OMB Feb 22 2016, 01:06 AM

I think so. It'd be nice to do a live draft this year.

Posted by: Duck Fart09 Feb 22 2016, 01:47 PM

Excited for a new season!!

I am good with keeping the 6 keepers. Also Yahoo does support live drafts with keepers. OMB would just need to designate each teams keepers before the draft and they will automatically fill them in to the first 6 rounds or last 6 rounds by which ever OMB choses.

Posted by: KillDevil Feb 23 2016, 10:26 AM

I'd love to have a fresh draft but that would be unfair on those that have built good sides over the years. I'm ok with 6 keepers, as I have 6 keepers that are likely to break down smile.gif

Posted by: FutureMan2 Feb 23 2016, 07:01 PM

Hello all. Keeping 6 is my vote. I have spent years developing this roster so it would be a shame to have to start over.

Posted by: The_OMB Feb 26 2016, 04:48 AM

Any thoughts on a day to do the draft? I would think a Saturday could be good, but y'all tell me...and this is, of course, assuming we do a live draft.

Posted by: Grattan Feb 28 2016, 09:45 AM

weekends work for me generally - Saturdays or Sunday here

Posted by: the_juice Feb 29 2016, 02:17 AM

i'm off the next two weekends and then back on for two. If the draft is between 16:00 and 21:00 eastern time on the 27th i can join in. The 19th i'm free during the day, i work the evening.

I'm flexable though. Sometimes i can sneak away at work. So yeah, pick i date and i'll do my best...if not, i'll set to autodraft.


Posted by: The_General Feb 29 2016, 09:50 AM

A live draft would be good. agree.gif Picking a time might be tough though...thinking.gif

I'm usually good at weekends, particularly evenings. On Saturdays I don't mind a late start to the draft for me (say 11pm here, 6pm EST), whilst Sundays I'd prefer a 9pm start at the latest.

I'll get back on specific dates - 26th/27th might be a little tougher because of Easter weekend and seeing family. smile.gif

This. wink.gif Pick a date and I'll do my best to be there. If not, I'm fine with autodrafting. To be honest, it would probably be an improvement for me at this point! laugh.gif

Live draft regardless, we can figure something out as far as date/time I'm sure. Remember, you can use the app to draft if needed and show up for parts of it as well.

Posted by: The_OMB Mar 2 2016, 08:20 PM

12th is good for me. It currently says 4pm my time (GMT) for the draft which would be the wee early hours for you Groover, wouldn't it?

If so any chance we could move the draft forward or back a few hours? thinking.gif

Yup, last season's positions are in brackets. agree.gif Although, I think the divisions are the same as last year. unsure.gif

Last season's standings:
Oak Hill 15ers - winner
Ft Mudge Possums - 2nd
TBD - 3rd
Pop Shop
Rozinante Reds
OMB United
Duck Fart
Pipli Boys
Princes Knuckleheads
The Stone Roses
The Mother Packers

see you all at the draft tonight wink.gif

OMB....in the live draft how long are we getting to pick a player....30 seconds?
Or a bit longer?

Just had a mock draft.. rolleyes.gif
..Just to let people know...
click on the player you want then clink on him again at the top of the page and this accepts your pick.

Can't tell from my phone. I would imagine 60 or 90 seconds though

Well. I think I did ok, once again I have my fingers crossed the my players have career years😫. Hopefully my pitching can carry me through .

Even though I missed the second half of the draft, I still preferred over what we did the past few seasons.

I'm open to some trades, especially for closers. They all went so abnormally high this year that I ended up picking the player I felt was best available. I won't give up too much, but I'll make a square deal. 👍

um.....hello blink.gif

that is some serious whammo there - doubt i have anyone you would want rolleyes.gif

btw was bored yday so i did a random sweep of Category winners for week one ( to see if my rabble ranked anywhere ) - pretty mixed bag

Batting
Runs - 42 - Mother Packers
RBI - 50 - OMB
Ave - .321 - OMB
SLG - .608 OMB

Pitching
Wins -7 Mother Packers /Duck Fart
K - 84 - Pop Shop
Saves 5 - OMB / Batball/ Reds /Pipli or KD
WIP - Oak Hill 1.07
QS - 7 Mudge /OakHill

some of those might have changed overnight before finals ....

It's all a bit of the luck of the draw - last season I got pipped in a very tight playoff match against Juice (down to literally a couple of hits to decide avg in the last game of the week IIRC), and I had a team that could have won I felt. This season I eeked out a victory over OMB somehow in the semi-final and then I got the perfect storm in the final week. biggrin.gif

I'm taking over from a 3-time league winner, with only 1 season out of 6 where you've not come in the top 3, so you're always the man to beat. thumbsup.gif

I propose we start fresh. A six player keeper league with a few less stats and players. Now that we're all seasoned I think it would be good to start from scratch, a new start to shape your squad. Anyone interested?

I just thought I'd start something up. Thinking that it's getting late and I haven't seen anything. Also with Jaz not participating last year it seems we need to find another player.

I'm not fussy though. I could cancel the other league. Or I can keep it open incase we can't get the other league going. Or blend the leagues.

I would as well. I'm on the verge of something good with my late season squad Orion's last year.

If things don't work out with the original, maybe we can keep two/three of our last season keepers in the new one. If we do the new one we could also draft, awarding last seasons winner with first pick. If we're only keepin a few of our original keepers.

Posted by: The_General Mar 14 2017, 11:08 AM

Also, have you herd from Jaz? He didn't play the last two months last season.

Everyone needs to declare their keepers by Friday, March 24th at 11:59pm EST. Let's draft Saturday or Sunday (25th or 26th), if that's good.

Dozier is a good start but it will take something else also. He is a top 5 SP and Dozier is just too inconsistent.

Pogo now...not holding out any hope. I started looking to see if I had the tie-breaker as my only hope is if it's close - won our first matchup this season 11-3 so I thought 'tie-breaker in the bag' and then carried on down the schedule to see that I lost the return matchup 13-2! laugh.gif

Pretty sure that 11-3 was my worst loss this season. Expecting a close battle though, despite the back & forth blowouts during the season!

looked like a good game - well done guys
that might be it for me after 7-8 seasons - the 7th place slot after being in the top 6 or thereabouts gutted me as i finally had a gun hitting line up (too many ties though) - sour grapes - you bet tongue.gif
if we fire up next year next pm me, as i might have changed my mind but it might be time to hand the team over to TJ rolleyes.gif

I'm in for this year. I'd prefer to start over (and make this a non-keeper league), but if others/majority want it to stay as a keeper, that's fine.

How many keepers is it again? I selected mine a week or so ago, but couldn't remember the number. I didn't get an error on however many I selected if I was over the limit.

its six
and the only reason i want to have a keepers league is for the first time in about 5 years i have 6 i want to keep

id take a reduction (4) but zero would kill me as i have limited time to research but i will go with the rest of the group


Posted by: tlaw4025 Mar 15 2018, 04:12 PM

I'm in. I am in favor of keeping it at 6.

Everyone go ahead and designate six keepers. We can set the draft for the next two weeks, whatever works for everyone.

Posted by: the_juice Mar 16 2018, 02:39 AM

I'll play only if we either eliminate the dead teams or find someone to take over. It's a long season to have a two teams that mailed it in and give a free pass every week angry.gif

I'm more in favor of starting over to be honest.

Agree with this. I'm not sure we'll find any others interested on here. unsure.gif Can we stick with the keepers if we shrink to a 10 team league? thinking.gif

If not, then I'd rather start again to make sure we don't have any free win weeks. thumbsup.gif

its a good question - reducing to 10 may help and is probably preferable - unsure re keepers but maybe the way around that is that when we draft everyones keepers are picked in the first 6 rounds...then normal draft resumes. Hope that makes sense ?

The only issue might be people want to pick the eyes out of the 11 and 12th team that are being discarded.

Posted by: The_OMB Mar 21 2018, 12:24 AM

We could easily drop 2 teams. Who are the two dead ones...Jaz and whom?

That'll make it better for the bottom teams to build a base, too, kind of a rebirth.

I personally feel like those categories help add value to players that wouldn't have it. Especially in pitching with holds. I really like the triples & complete game categories, too, because it's a tiebreaker of sorts. But with 10 teams, it might be time to reduce the categories because the player pool is much deeper now.

I enjoy the extra cats, makes you think outside the box a fair bit. agree.gif If we had to shrink, my least fave is CG - simply because there are so few (relative to the other categories - 2CGs got you 3rd in that cat last season). If we had to even things out I'd probably agree (with heavy heart) with Juice on SLG - this cat probably most mimics another cat (HR). Whilst other batter cats are linked somewhat they do have a certain separate element to them (e.g 3b and SB can be linked by speed but 3B also can be achieved by less speedy players -Gattis a couple of seasons ago, Castellanos last).

I'll choose my keepers once this is confirmed, there's a chance this impacts who I pick. smile.gif

Posted by: The_OMB Mar 23 2018, 01:25 AM

OK, then I think this means we should cut triples & complete games. Slugging actually is mainly since we don't count doubles (and now probably triples). So, slugging needs to stay, in my opinion, if we eliminate another extra base hit category.

i like triples but will take either - i did like the fact that Complete Games and Triples sometimes gave you that tiebreaker and if u were lucky you could bank one point that week ( see my game history and u will appreciate that comment laugh.gif )

Posted by: pogophiles Mar 27 2018, 04:30 PM

If you really want to change things up, make it a points league rather than head to head. Can make for more different strategies relative to what we have been doing, plus then it doesn't matter if there is a dead team or two...

Can't do that, but I can get a draft going. We can add stats retroactively, too, so it doesn't really matter about the season starting on Thursday
