Draft is tonight at 7:30pm EST.

Any reason why the draft order isn\'t random anymore?



i accidentally set it to that, and I tried, but cant change it back to random. I promise I did it completely randomly and I did not end up with a top pick so....

if you have any qualms the most I can do is give you the draft position you would prefer if you post it on here before the draft

draft is now complete, and i must say, my team kicks ass. i ended up with the 5th pick, which was pretty good. one thing i didn\'t notice before, but it\'s too late now. i don\'t like how we only have one player on our bench. i\'m not saying we should have more players, but i think the two utility players are pointless. there\'s more strategy when you have to make a choice to play someone on your bench over one of your normal starters. does that make sense? either way, i am so ready for baseball.

Actually, we all have 5 bench spots. You used 4 of those spots up on extra pitchers which is probably why it appears that you are only able to have one extra batter. If you want more batting subs drop some pitchers.

i don\'t love the two utility spots either... but really not a big deal.

i wonder whether we should be discussing this all on .info or use the message board on yahoo...

i\'m sure weekly matchups will followed in this thread :)

we should discuss it here, much easier I think.


I set it to 2 Utility spots because I figure it gives the deeper teams more of an advantage.  And yes, bench spots can be used up by pitchers or batters.  


p.s.  I LOVE my team

Just checking in... not much talk going on in the message board.  

I still love my team and have been keeping up pretty much on a daily basis.  I assume most owners in the league are not.

I wish we were doing this for some money... im feeling pretty confident.

My offensive players aren\'t playing too well at the moment. The only thing keeping me out of last place is my pitchers. Damn, I can\'t even escape the Padres\' trends in Fantasy Baseball. :wedgie:

So huuggee matchup this week....

Jerrytown Vs.  Antbach\'s Screwballs.


gotta say this was the team i was most scared of during the draft.

so far antbach has taken a huge lead of 13 to 4 categories. But  I predict a huge come from behind win here because most of my pitchers (far and away the best in the league) do not pitch until late in the week.  of course your guys are hitting the ball a whole lot better than mine, which has given you the lead in the league standings, but the week is still young.

and on that note so is the season... i thought after being on top for a few weeks that I was just going to stay there, but i guess i was wrong.  

best of luck

I don\'t know who is still paying attention to this league, but can we please veto that absolute bullshit trade that is in the works?
