2019 Season Discussion

Recommended Posts

All rosters are entered (thanks GuardBum) except for the final 3 supp picks. Season has started and is ready for adds/drops.

Cdub, lambert, and 29 Guests, just add your last player after you pick.

Awesome. Good luck all!

Have to say I am jealous of my family owned cubbies 

Judge and Soto is a damn nice haul for an offense that is already pretty stout.

games start at 5:45 AM correct?  If Cdub doesn't appear by 9 EST, i'd say lambert and 29 guests should be able to finish off their draft and get their teams ready.

Considering the roster additions have to happen before the games... that seems fair to me.

That is mainly because of the team you are playing with...  Right??

It's just a very stale draft.  Most of my team is exclusives, either royals or players contributing with other teams.  But yes, because it's the royals.

That's a vote or commish answer. Not sure if and when we have precedent on that. Seem to recall it once before and it had something to do of when the games started...blahblahblah.  But it's been awhile.

The concern is additional time is rewarded with additional information.  Players who might be waiting on test results could be a better option if information comes out after the test if the draft is complete.  Just curious how it works. Hopefully it won’t be an issue and the Lick will be made.

I don't think it should be a forfeit, but he can't pick any exclusive players that are dropped by teams for roster reasons (and he doesn't push it past early tomorrow).

Time mentioned for tonight is here. 

 

What does everyone think about a forfeit time of 535p est tomorrow? Its 12hrs after the first game. Almost 18hr from potentially the end of this draft otherwise.  Assuming Lambert and 29G get theirs in tonight.

I'm ready to pick.  Was just waiting for someone to give the approval to do so.   I do believe we need to set a limit for the pick to be forfeited.  I also believe that any player who plays in a game before the pick should be ineligible.

I agree, this makes sense.

im cool with him picking whenever. i dont want to be a hard ass or anything..... then again, we are in the middle of a known draft with a known time crunch before the season begins...

id say all players should be eligible. If he wants a mariner or athletic, its only hurting himself.

and I would also agree that the pick needs to be in before game 2 or its gone. just because luxury of letting more info come out on injured players... etc etc (even though I dont think its going to make much of a difference)

Does the skipping of the pick forfeit the pick?

The recent addition by the Rays of Trevor Story has lit a fire under Tim Beckham.... Willy Adams has also stated he is feeling the competition....

I was late on a supp. pick at the all-star break by 2 days and was denied to make a pick a few years back

If I only started Kike and Barnes I would've had 3 more

gotta love making changes to your next day lineup, then adding a player off free agency and it reverts your lineup changes. Now charlie Morton and austin meadows are sitting on my bench :mad:

Yahoo has always done that...  If you make any roster moves on the current day, anything set for future always gets reset...

I added Aaron Brooks (P, OAK) today and then dropped him. I was looking at a starting lineups site and he was wearing a Cubs hat so I assumed he had played for the Cubs, but then I looked closer and he only accumulated minor league stats with the Cubs.

Had him as my QB back in the day. Always wanted to rip his head off when he'd throw one of his numerous picks, then walk off the field with a grin on his face.

That's just one thing of my list of things that suck about Yahoo.  #1 on my list is you cant add/drop players for tomorrow's lineup after today's games begin like you can on ESPN.  You have to wait until after midnight Pacific time to do so....which means I have to do it the next day. That's not always possible for me due to work.

This AAA team is struggling to compete with the show.My 4 and 5 starters would be great if they were actually 4 and 5's on their respective teams but they are 1 or 2's in most cases.  Votto slow out the gate and Stanton didn't last.  Maybe back soon.  Maybe Vlad Jr will win the league for me by himself when he finally does get the call up.  Wonder if he pitches?

I miss not sure I could have got off to a better start. Yelich is on fire and carrying me right now.  Starting pitching hasn’t been the best but I have 9!starters to throw out there so I am racking up K’s.   

Just waiting for the bubble to burst...
