Title: Fantasy Baseball
Post by: hbionic on March 26, 2015, 01:27:54 PM
...uh...so what do I do?


My neighbor asked me to sign up for fantasy baseball, and I do what everyone asks of me, no limits.

What should I draft? I think there's like 15-20 heads in the league. Pitchers only? Any positions to avoid? Help!

Draft Ryan Howard with your first pick, he's going to have a monster season. If you don't believe me PM Phreak.

A rape package will be sent to your house. Make sure you open it with your mouth....and what do I do if Howard is off the board?  :paranoid

my pitching staff is insane

-cy scherzer
-greinkie aka kershaw's robin
-nikki
-ty ross
-sonny corleone gray
-doug fister sister

then, whenever they get healthy:
-matt king cain....fully restocked, back to his old tricks, throwing low to mid 90's
-the best pitcher in baseball jose fernandez

I joined my first one...17 teams, weekly head to head.

I got farged by the auto pick...My first pick was King Felix, then Strasburg, and I was in line to draft Wainwright but didn't realize what happened until three picks later....anyway...ended up with Matt Cain, Jake Peavy, Craig Krimbrell, Danny Duffy, Trevor Bauer, and Jason Vargas. Got Alex Cobb as an auto pick and just got Tyson Ross.

C- Saltalamacchia
1b- Joey Votto
2b- Howie Kendrick
3b- Evan Langoria
SS- Alcides Escobar
OF- Joc Pederson
OF- Carlos Beltran
OF- Torii Hunter
UTIL- Nolan Arenado (auto picked instead of Wainwright)
Bench- Desmond Jennings
Bench- James Loney


MDS, please tell me I have a chance? And who the farg is Nolan Arenado????    :boom

(Obviously I haven't been following baseball closely the last few seasons).

He's the Rockies 3B and I wanted to draft him but some slappy stole him before I could.

I did get Jimmmmmaaaay though.

i followed my strategy of the past few years to load up on bats and find pitching as the year goes on.  i don't love my team but i did literally zero research so whatever

I have my 10 team keeper league auction tomorrow. Pretty happy with my keepers going into the draft, and their prices...

Kyle Seager  $7
Starling Marte $7
George Springer $6
Kole Calhoun $2
Gregory Polanco $2

Johnny Cueto $17
Alex Wood $11
Alex Cobb $9
Andrew Cashner $7
Michael Wacha $7
Michael Pineda $4
Jose Quintana $6


Got $175 to spend and 13 roster spots to fill. In position to draft Trout if I want to. Right now am willing to go up to $65 to do it, but I'll see how the bidding shakes out.

Post by: hbionic on April 04, 2015, 02:31:47 PM
I have nothing to base it on whether that's good or bad (given the amount of players and teams in MLB)....but I admit its a bit much which waters it down a bit which I assume gives me a better chance of winning...if at all possible. Anyways, it's only $20 to get my feet wet, so why not.
Title: Re: Fantasy Baseball
Post by: MDS on April 04, 2015, 02:34:00 PM
thats not bad for 17 teams.....though when you have that many players and such a watered down FA pool, it becomes super random

10-12 is the ideal # for FB

Post by: hbionic on April 07, 2015, 02:08:11 PM
Funny part is, because of my baseball card collection growing up...baseball and stats were imbedding in us, or at least me. I used to watch complete baseball games all the time. Mostly Dodgers, but I'd watch some angels, and whatever was broadcasting locally (pre-cable days). That's why personally, I don't care too much about baseball outside the region/state...but I'll remember some off the wall baseball shtein from 20-25 years ago.

Title: Re: Fantasy Baseball
Post by: PhillyPhreak54 on April 07, 2015, 02:14:27 PM
Same here - I have about 50k cards from my collecting hey day. They're holed away at my mom's place. But I haven't really bought any since 1996ish.

The baseball card stats aren't what mds and people of his ilk like nowadays though. If they had their way cards would look like farging calculus equations on the back.

Hundley
Chirinos
Rosario
Flowers

Those are the four best on there. The Rockies will probably platoon or play Rosario in other positions

Not a whole lot of good options. But keep an eye on those and grab the best of the four after a week or two

i realized that fantasy baseball was pretty much the only reason i paid attention to mlb the last 5 years. i'm not playing this year and there's a good chance i don't watch a single second on tv this year. i will go to some to drink though.

what do they possibly have to do with each other?

also i don't hate baseball. i just would never spend 3 hours watching it on tv. in person i think it's a great time.
Title: Re: Fantasy Baseball
Post by: MDS on April 28, 2015, 11:58:00 PM
can anybody else not make a move while games are in progress?

ive been trying to get rid of diekman forever and every time i go do it says i cant because hes playing.
Title: Re: Fantasy Baseball
Post by: ice grillin you on April 29, 2015, 07:09:59 AM
I think that happened to me earlier in the year....I remember correctly while the players actual game in going on you can't do anything with him

I think it's like this cause in baseball you can pick up someone and play them the same day...whereas basketball for example if you pick a guy up Tuesday he won't be in your lineup until wed
Title: Re: Fantasy Baseball
Post by: PhillyPhreak54 on April 29, 2015, 01:04:11 PM
Correct - if the player is in your lineup and the games are still ongoing you cannot drop. If he is on your bench then you can drop at any time
Title: Re: Fantasy Baseball
Post by: MDS on April 29, 2015, 02:01:25 PM
thats lame

im not trying to drop diekman for tuesday....its all for wednesday. why do i have to wait.

anyway j one of your precious phillies is available so go scoop him up

its actually a much better system....i hate basketball and hockey where you cant pick a player up and play him on the same day
Title: Re: Fantasy Baseball
Post by: PhillyPhreak54 on April 29, 2015, 02:36:40 PM
I like it being available on same day because sometimes by the time I am able to log on its too late to make any changes.

I picked up Luis Garcia - Diekman can go farg himself with a corn stalk
Title: Re: Fantasy Baseball

Well barring a miracle tomorrow I'm done

As an aside its probably better to start the playoffs a week earlier next year. Having it in the final week with guys packing it in or not playing at all sucks

the real title was just won.
Title: Re: Fantasy Baseball
Post by: Munson on April 02, 2016, 11:59:44 PM
This is how my team ended up today. K's for the keepers.

C-Devin Mesoraco $2
1B-Chris Davis $28 (K)
2B-Rougned Odor $6 (K)
3B-Kyle Seager $8 (K)
SS-Xander Beogarts $5 (K)
IF-Corey Seager $6 (K)
OF-Andrew McCutchen $46
OF-George Springer $7 (K)
OF-Kole Calhoun $3 (K)
OF-Joc Pederson $7 (K)
UTIL-Evan Longoria $6

P-Chris Archer $9 (K)
P-Carlos Rodon $6 (K)
P-Aaron Nola $6 (K)
P-Stephen Strasburg $37
P-Drew Smiley $13
P-Jeff Samardjzia $7
P-Jose Quintana $6
P-Michael Pineda $4
P-Jeremey Jefferies $10

Bench-Billy Burns $5
Bench-Brett Lawrie $6
Bench-Michael Conforto $2
Bench-Javier Baez $1 (gonna stash him on the DL and pick someone up)
N/A-Joey Gallo $2 (K)



Overall pretty happy with the team, but left too much money on the table. Didn't end up with guys I thought I would. I'm not big on Longoria or Samardjzia but at those prices it was whatever. Didn't plan on spending that much on Strasburg either, but the elite pitchers were all gone and they all went for big money as well.

Gonna be scouring the waiver wire for saves as I always do.

Post by: PhillyPhreak54 on September 07, 2016, 04:47:01 PM
My guys have been hurt and sucking. I've been working the wire too.

And the offense is inconsistent...I'll blow up one week and then the next hit like .149
Title: Re: Fantasy Baseball
Post by: ice grillin you on September 07, 2016, 04:58:41 PM
yeah my offense is the exact same way...i either win every category huge or i completely implode
