    Get fucked. I'm not telling you to do anything, I'm saying that we left PLENTY of time for discussion so don't come in here days before we draft after we've had trouble sorting shit out saying you want the draft changed to a time that is CLEARLY unsuitable for others who have commented on it already.

    you were. you're telling me i had plenty of time to get in here and have a discussion on shit when i've posted ONCE since february 20th until today and have hardly been online in that time span. i don't know any troubles you guys have had cause i haven't read any of it. i saw the set date and immediately posted, not even realizing this happened at the beginning of march cause of how behind i am on shit. regardless, you could've just said 'sorry dude, a bunch of peeps can't do next week' instead of getting on my ass about time i didn't have the luxury of spending freely.

    that's actually another concern i've had since matthew told me the draft order a couple days ago, and i freaked out cause i thought the draft was that day. we've settled in at the new restaurant, so monday/tuesday isn't so crazy, then i'm supposed to have off wednesday/thursday. but the weekend is a different beast. i don't get much time to check my phone until after 3pm those days. whether that's enough to give up my spot, i don't know. i'll likely be less active then previous years, but still more active than some people in the past.

    I don't care how you have spent your time. Fact is, I did leave plenty of time for anybody to come with any problems and people did respond, so of course I'm going to get pissy with anyone who comes in a few days before the draft asking to move it to a time that we moved from already because people can't do. Sure I could have said that, but you could have read the thread to begin with.

    Basically I now hate you forever. Also from what you said it doesn't sound like you should give up your spot, we all know you will still not be able to resist checking your team a lot anyway! I mean you don't (still don't?) even like baseball that much and still have been crazy active over the years so it's all good.

    As for me, while I do have a conflict with the draft, I've just been mercilessly editing my rankings and autopick selections and wouldn't want it moved on my account. It's actually a fun challenge to set it so I A) get players I like and B) have a balanced team where one position doesn't get massively overdrafted. Besides, it'll be fun trading to fill out the team. We can always use more trades.


    Just in case, I do recommend Morry look over the auto-pick settings. You can set the minimum and maximum number drafted from any one position, whet types of players to draft when and so forth.

    YER. I can just change draft order to reflect this trade luckily.

    It was fine on my team but with Matthew it kept saying something about player in ineligible slot. In case anyone was thinking of swapping picks.

    setting auto-pick shit is something i wanted to avoid, cause it's just so much easier to fill out your team in real time, however i will likely do this cause even if the draft is pushed back until 6, i likely will miss the start of the draft and/or the whole thing. i'll probably hop on and look it over, though i may need your guidance on figuring shit out.

    It's kind of like a safety net. I've had it set the past couple years so, if something wacky happens during the draft and I lose connection, I don't just draft a team that has holes, five catchers or whatever.

    Like, right now, it would draft just one catcher. That's really the best position to illustrate it with, as it's the one spot where we really only need one player. I have caps on how many can be drafted from most all positions and have kept them fairly low at most positions so I don't get four shortstops or second basemen. Setting it to draft certain positions at certain picks seems nice, but isn't something I've messed with. There's no way to tell in advance when people will start drafting certain positions or when the players you like from those positions will be gone.

    ESPN is now giving me an error message when I try to edit my rankings. Started last night but I ignored it then thinking it was one of those things that would sort itself out.

    Anyone else having this problem? NEED TO TWEAK!

    What's the error message? I tried to join a mock draft yesterday and it came up with an error message, and we also had the other ESPN is going nuts.

    It seems to work for me just fine though.

    Yeah, it's just going in and out due to the high level of activity in mid-March.

    I'm trying to figure out what my strategy should be going into this one. Because my classic "Draft one Ace pitcher and snag the rest in middle rounds" pretty much sunk me into last place when that pitcher turned out to be Tim Lincecum last year.

    Pitchers are fickle. There's obviously the one I LOVE, but he could put up a 6.00 ERA and I'd still suck him off.

    Usually, I avoid them mostly in draft. This year will probably be different with me on auto, but I've been merciless with tweaking my rankings. I keep looking through and rethinking how much I like each player.

    Stout Trout is still worth that first overall shout. Then again he has less value in this particular league because of the OF position rather than CF where he is plain godly. I'd rather be in that #3 spot though, and get to take whoever falls to me.

    I've pretty much won the Robinson Cano consolation prize sweepstakes unless somebody in the top 3 decides to get wacky.

    Hey guys quick question, I joined a keeper auction league with my brother's friends. Where do I see how much a player will cost if I keep him into this season?

    Thanks.

    What the fudge, I go away for a few hours and there's people wanting to murder each other, hack computers, suck each off and worse of all move the start date for the draft! Ridiculous.

    So I'm in the 10 hole that's a new one for me I don't think I've done a draft in the that position before. I've been doing the mock drafts on ESPN and just about every team I have done is a bit on the mental side, the variance is stunning but that is probably just down to me. I still haven't made up my own list yet I'll get on that tonight or tomorrow also if Matthew could trade me Ryan Braun again that would be super helpful. Ahh memories when me and Matthew stunned the world....Josh Hamilton went ballistic for the first couple of months and the arse fell out of him.

    I'm going to try to time this so I can make the draft but since I'll be at a St Patrick's Day parade a few hours prior, if I do make it I'll be in a shall we say altered state of mind. Should be fun.

    thanks for pushing it back to 6, guys. ended up using a favor to get the day off today so i could fit in birthday time AND get to the draft, thinking i've arrived 40 minutes early only to find out i'm 20 minutes late. i wouldn't have taken braun at 2, which is a disappointment, but thankfully the other auto-picks weren't too bad. i'm definitely open to some trades for hamels and braun, so hitty let me know what's up.

    FINALLY got a break to check the draft. Was going to busy at work anyway then everyone called out so I've been non stop for eight hours...


    Kemp is an absolute steal at seven, in my view. Love my OF and that the auto focused on them and 1B. I neglected OF last year and regretted it. I'll be on the lookout for a second basemen and a starter at some point, but everything turned out much nicer than they could have.

    [EDIT] Changed a few bits after looking over my team.

    Fuck me, in the space of two minutes I basically shat my entire inside's out and hurt my back in the process. Anyways, soldiering on here is my team:

    C A.J. Pierzynski, Tex C
    1B Joey Votto, Cin 1B
    2B Aaron Hill, Ari 2B
    3B Aramis Ramirez, Mil 3B
    SS Elvis Andrus, Tex SS
    2B/SS Alexei Ramirez
    1B/3B Prince Fielder, Det 1B
    OF Adam Jones, Bal OF
    OF Alex Gordon, KC OF
    OF Angel Pagan, SF OF
    OF Torii Hunter, Det OF
    UTIL Nelson Cruz, Tex OF
    UTIL Ben Revere, Phi OF
    Bench Ichiro Suzuki, NYY OF
    Bench Brian McCann, Atl C
    Bench Everth Cabrera, SD SS
    Bench Brandon Belt, SF 1B

    PITCHERS
    P David Price, TB SP
    P Yu Darvish, Tex SP
    P Adam Wainwright, StL SP
    P Hiroki Kuroda, NYY SP
    P Jon Lester, Bos SP
    P Steve Cishek, Mia RP
    P Brandon League, LAD RP
    RP Huston Street, SD RP
    RP Addison Reed, CWS RP

    Here's the thing every year I try to strive for a balanced team and inevitably what always happen is I neglect speed, not this year however I'm not happy with the outfield. I like my pitching for a change. I'll be making changes, I don't like the bench at all and infield is a worry. I haven't had a look at everyone else yet. I wanted to pick up Beltran, Eaton and Sal Perez but as usual Torn nabbed them before they fell to me. It's uncanny how he seems to know.

    That's a fucking solid team all around, man. Everything's covered and you have Fielder for trade bait.

    I got wayyyyyyy more pitching than I expected, but I think I got things pretty well rounded out. Pretty much every category is covered. I'll have to work extra hard to wind up in last.

    Torn:


    I sent a reply with my decline. We've talked about a trade like that and I'm very interested as we will both be very happy with it. I just want to wait a week or two to sort things out, see if anyone comes knocking for a 1B and see who I end up with when I can DL Curtis and Ortiz. I also sort of want to make it a four player (two on each side) swap, but we'll hammer that out in a week or so.



    Cewsh:

    Thanks for the offer but Heyward is damn near untouchable for me. Part of this is the annoying sentimental reason you've run into in the past with me and Braves players. Meeting them with my nephew tends to make me love them. Unlike Kershaw who wouldn't sign our autographs after we told him not to pull a Mariano while shagging fly balls in the OF at Turner. To his credit he did laugh and then joke with us about Matt Stafford, nor was he signing any autographs, but still.

    Haha, totally understand. I didn't have my heart set on Heyward. You just have a glut of outfield and I have a glut of pitching. So if there's another version you'd prefer, then we can take a look at that.

    Cewsh set himself up for that one... like Broxton will be setting up for Aroldis

    I don't draft closers early but he's more valuable as the closer anyway.

    Even though it means I now have 4 members of the San Francisco starting rotation on my team, which could be a disaster if their offense happens to suck this year, that trade offer was too sweet to pass up. Cheers Brian M.

    What was your rationale? Needed Swisher to upgrade you at 1B?

    The SF rotation is utterly filthy btw.

    Yep, desperately needed a first baseman. The auto draft really screwed me there. Plus I had a surplus of great starting pitching with King Felix and Weaver, so I figured I could afford to move another one of my good starters.

    Makes sense but why Swisher and not aim way higher? There was a reason Bumgarner was a 7th round pick and Swisher a 17th rounder.

    So what kind of players do people need? If nobody fills out their trade block, it's kind of shooting in the dark to offer trades.

    I'm honestly not sure what I need. The draft actually worked out really well with my autopick strategy. I wanted to basically ignore pitching for the first 12 rounds anyway and the fact that I got guys like Minor, McCarthy, Beckett and Hudson, all of whom I had moved WAY up, was lovely. Love Minor. Beckett's a fat piece of shit, but he seems like a great fit in LA and a bargain in the late rounds.

    I probably will need a second baseman at some point, but Gyorko has gobs of talent and I could see him having a very nice year.


    Delighted to get Kemp. I had him ranked right after Miggy and Trout, so I was shocked to see him on my team from number seven.

    Okay, if CC Sabathia does to me what Tim Lincecum did to me last year, I'm drafting nothing but pitchers for the first 8 rounds next year.

    Well I only drafted one 3B and he is on the DL so beggars can't be choosers

    Why the F isn't ESPN letting me move Teixeira to the DL?

    Nvm. Found the weird separate tab for DL management.

    I love that we're almost to the end of the week and Atty and my tie could still end up 10-0 in either direction.

    Has anyone won the Mitch Moreland sweepstakes yet this year? Loaded with potential!

    Glad you're prepared to lose 10-0.

    The one stat I would never have expected to be stomping you in is home runs. That doesn't even make sense.

    Bit of an overreaction there. You could still overtake me in several categories and end up winning the week. I think we've all seen 7-2 matches swing the other way on with a good or bad weekend.

    That said, I fucking LOVE my rotation.

    You don't think a 9 homer, 10 RBI, 3 win and 1.8 ERA lead is a lot, really? Yeah miracles happen but that is a lot to over come. Regardless shut up you fanny I hate you, oh, your rotation blows.

    I've never been so unhappy to be so right.

    Well what do you know miracles do happen, man I got so lucky here at one point you where making a run at my SB lead as well and thought jesus this could be a 10-0 for you but luckily for me I made a storming comeback. Not to rub it in but I think in the 6/7 years I've been playing fantasy sports this might be my greatest comeback.

    Well played though.

    I hit you back. I think what I offered you is pretty even across the board. I just wasn't willing to give up someone producing for a guy who was going to ride the bench until Frese injured himself again.

    Fair enough. We probably won't make a deal then. No worries.
