Post by: ticohans on March 21, 2017, 05:17:12 pm
Sounds good.

Divers petition to move Kang to DL, use Eric Thames at CI (CBS has him listed as OF, but he will be the Brewers' starting 1B) and pick up Howie Kendrick.

 New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius will miss Opening Day and likely won't return to the team's lineup until sometime in May, at the earliest, because of a strained shoulder muscle, general manager Brian Cashman said Tuesday.

It's all the work of Russian hackers.  Vladimir Putin is taking over the BBFL.  Apparently Putin and CurtOne were doing some bear wrestling in Siberia without their shirts on before the draft, so there might be a connection there.

Unfortunately, I was stricken with a picture.  In my head.     I fear I can say no more as there is a certain amount of terror of being restricken.  Next thing you are gonna say is there were shirtless Kardashian and Jenners around acting as cheerleaders to complete the torment I'm sure.

March 21, 2017 8:29 AM EDT | by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
Price (elbow) may be out until May at the earliest, Evan Drellich of Comcast Sportsnet New England reports.

It appears he's DL bound so if approval is granted to send him to ours also, Oz Busters DL David
Price and pick up Mike Foltynewicz to replace.

Mr. Onions, i'd suggest appealing to the circle to have a heart to to heart with the Mariners gm.  I've done so in the past and the request proved fruitful.  They are excellent with those persuasive heart to heart talks with uncooperative gm's and managers.  Im sure yall remember when terry francona had to take off for "personal reasons".  There was also Jim Leyland's "retirement".  Ron Washington's time off was actually spent in hiding rather than rehab.  There was no failed test.

Sounds like Urias will start the year in extended ST. Does that mean I can name a replacement for him?
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: CurtOne on March 24, 2017, 10:34:37 am
 From da rules:
Exception:  If a starting pitcher selected in our free agent draft is sent to the minors for the express and verifiable purpose of waiting until the major league club needs a 5th starter, the owner can petition the Circle that he be allowed to keep said starting pitcher. The owner is not allowed to select a temporary replacement player but keeps the starter in question on his active roster and earns no points for that roster spot until the starter is recalled.  If the pitcher is not recalled within 4 full weeks of his team’s first game, or if the major league club uses a different 5th starter in the original player's place, the owner is forced to waive the pitcher (thus burning a waiver and losing his waiver slot) and select a replacement player from the free agent pool. The pitcher just waived is subject to the regular 48-hr claim rules once recalled.
------------------------------------
Does Urias still retain minor league status?  If so, you could demote him and drop some minor leaguer.

Re: Urias.  Tico is going to have to wait to see how exactly LA assigns him.  Extended spring training may mean a DL stint or it may mean, as Curt said, actually being optioned to the minors.  Or they could call him the 5th starter.  It's still too unclear at the moment.troto

Urias was not a free agent draftee but a keeper, so he's not subject to the 4 week rule, I do not believe. He's also eclipsed minor league service time, officially.

If the Dodgers simply put him in the minors, that makes this question simple enough. I can then simply do the same.

That said, I believe the Dodgers intend to put him in extended ST, as they are specifically trying to limit his innings. I understand, per 82, that we need to wait and see what happens, but ext st is much more DL-like than anything else.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: CurtOne on March 24, 2017, 04:44:53 pm
Yeah, I saw that too.  Intent is important.  Even though it says FA draft, the "intent" was your major league roster.  Having a keeper fall into this situation wasn't foreseen.  In other words, let's wait and see if we need an adjustment and we may need to reword this during winter meetings.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: method on March 24, 2017, 07:24:48 pm
I believe the dodgers intend to option Urias... if that is the case and that is the move they make i would think tico would have to move him to the minors and release a minors player to retain him...

Its one thing to skip a starter thru april... but its another to say they are limiting him for a couple of months in extending spring training to hold back his innings. ... its another to say a team is going to hold back a starter for 2 months to save his innings... this is a super unique situation...   As i believe the dodgers are trying to play some service time/roster games...

I am sure rich hill will hurt his tongue and be dled in a few weeks and it wont matter... but from what i have read is the dodgers do not want Urais to go past 150 IP this year... if he is in "extended spring training" into may its a loop hole they are exploiting.

Post by: Dave23 on March 25, 2017, 03:22:45 pm
If he goes to XST on Opening Day, what is his status as far as the 25 man goes? I think that's the question that needs to be addressed.

If he's on the 25 man, and just not with the team, and the Dodgers are playing a man short for however long, I think you'd have to leave him on your roster and take the 0...much as the Dodgers would be doing.

The other options are the DL or demotion to the minors, and those are self-explanatory under our rules.

Post by: JR on March 26, 2017, 06:52:20 pm
Sure am glad I drafted this guy.  I guess this what you deserve when you draft a Deadbird ...

Kolten Wong said Sunday that he would "100 percent" rather be traded than be platooned at second base.
It was one of a host of scathing comments from Wong in the wake of Cardinals manager Mike Matheny saying Saturday that the club would consider a platoon at second base. "I honestly don't give a (censored)," Wong said when asked about the team mulling over a platoon. Wong added that he doesn't want to be "wasting my time" with the Cards if they don't have faith in him. They're words Wong probably shouldn't have aired in public, but you can understand his frustration after the club essentially committed to him as the regular second baseman this winter. That said, Wong could make it all a moot point if he simply played better. He sports an underwhelming career .248/.309/.370 batting line and entered Sunday hitting just .182/.265/.250 this spring.

Read your rules!  Yes, you can move him down, but only with a clear statement that he will relieve rather than start.  After 3 starts, you lose points.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017

BTW, tico and others.  We forgot the other day when discussing this rule that we dropped it to 3 rather than 5 starts last year.  I forgot we voted on that.

Post by: JR on March 28, 2017, 11:33:20 pm
Quote from: Rotoworld
Brandon McCarthy has won the final spot in the Dodgers' rotation.
He beat out Alex Wood, who will pitch out of the bullpen. McCarthy was probably going to get the spot, anyway, but Wood's hopes might have officially sunk when he was roughed up against the Reds on Tuesday. McCarthy holds a 4.85 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 7/1 K/BB ratio this spring. He should be deep mixed league worthy if he can stay healthy, although he might not have a rotation spot long with Julio Urias' impending arrival.

The Brats sign Hyun-Jin Ryu, release Jeremy Jeffress, and move Alex Wood to RP.  Waiver #3.

Title: Re: BBFL 2017

Mejia definitely should be at SP.  He has 4 relief appearances throughout all of high A, AA, and AAA.  There have been no relief appearances since he was at AA in 2014, save for 1 last year for the Twins.

Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: CurtOne on March 31, 2017, 07:50:18 pm
Yes, he will have to move to SP.
          ii.  Any pitcher that has started 3 games in a season is an SP.  If used as an SP in minors, must be, without appeal, an SP in MLB
         iii.  Should an SP be demoted to RP status, the owner may appeal to Commissioner for change in status.

It was legal as it was, just wouldn't be after the break. This way, it will be. If further roster moves require it to be switched back, or around again, we can deal with that at that time.

Garrett Richards - S - Angels

Angels placed RHP Garrett Richards on the 10-day disabled list with a right biceps strain.
With the new DL rules, the Angels can get an extra bullpen arm for a few days even if Richards is going to miss just the one start that they expect at the moment. The Halos will have to rely on a bullpen arm or someone from Triple-A to start in the right-hander's place on Saturday.

The Brats place Garrett Richards on the DL, move Alex Wood to PU, and sign Archie Bradley to RP to replace.

I'm curious.   How are we going to handle a guy like otaku who wants to play both ways?  What if he's very good as bat and arm?
Depends on how CBS handles it.  To work in their system, they might have to make Otaku two players, one that pitches, one that hits.  Otaku the hitter may be on your roster.  The pitcher might be on Dave's.  Or the owner of Otaku may have to make a choice.  Pitcher or hitter?  Those leagues which allow the reorganization of rosters every day may not have a problem.  CBS may allow an owner to flip a PU into the UP position which would help too.  But, all in all, we may not have control...we'll have to look to CBS.   Since CBS doesn't have the ability to give us the benefit of the hits our pitchers get, I wouldn't get too excited.

380 points is crazy impressive, however, even with 10 starts. I wish there was some way to search for best weeks at certain things in history.  That has to be one of all time great pitching weeks in bbfl.

Madmen release Altavilla pick up Brad Hand to replace.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Heads back to minors
1 hr ago | by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
Altavilla was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Friday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
The right-hander allowed three earned runs in two of his last four appearances, so the Mariners will send him back to the minors to regain some confidence. Altavilla has done well to strike out ten batters in his 7.1 innings of work, but the bigger concern is his lack of control in that span, as he's given out six free passes. To replace him in the big-league bullpen, Chase De Jong was recalled from Triple-A.

Diamondbacks' Shelby Miller: Headed to DL
2 hrs ago | by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
Miller (forearm) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Monday, Jack Magruder of FanRag Sports reports.
After leaving Sunday's game with right forearm tightness, Miller will now be forced to miss one start at the very least. The next step will be determining just how severe his injury is, which could be the difference between having to miss weeks as opposed to months. After a disappointing first season with the Diamondbacks, Miller had a slightly-improved start to 2017, posting a 4.09 ERA and 3.31 FIP in 22.0 innings thus far.

Pirates' Adam Frazier: Sent to DL
1 hr ago | by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
Frazier was placed on the 10-day disabled list Monday with a hamstring strain.
Frazier was hitting .306 with a home run and five RBI through 15 games this season. Pitching prospect Dovydas Neverauskas has been promoted from Triple-A to fill his roster spot. It's unclear how long Frazier will be sidelined with the injury, though more should be known once the Pirates update his status. For the time being, Jose Osuna should see most of the reps in right field, but an outside move could be in the making if Frazier needs to miss extended time.

Hyun-Jin Ryu - S - Dodgers

Dodgers placed LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu on the 10-day disabled list with a left hip contusion.

Ryu felt a little tightness in his glute while sliding into second base on Sunday. The Dodgers have an off day on Thursday and are hoping that the left-hander will miss just one start. They'll now operate with a traditional five-man rotation for now.

The Brats place Ryu on the DL and sign Alex Wood to replace.

By the way, Guillermo Heredia may not be a household name right now, but with coaching like this, it's just a matter of time.

Quote
Guillermo Heredia - OF - Mariners

Mariners manager Scott Servais said Thursday that Guillermo Heredia is a "totally different guy" after working on shortening his swing.

"He’s made some adjustments with his swing," Servais said. "To his credit, he went right to the Fall League after the season. He spent some time with Brant Brown, our minor-league hitting coordinator, and shortened up his swing." Heredia is 10-for-23 with three stolen bases so far this spring and may be close to locking up an Opening Day roster spot. He could find himself in a platoon with Jarrod Dyson in left field.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: JR on May 03, 2017, 12:05:51 am
That's Brant Brown teaching someone to shorten his swing by the way.  He must have had a long ass swing before if Brant Brown is shortening this guy's swing up.

To buy - Rodgers, Happ, Bauers, Reed can all be had in a trade.
To sell - Sale, Myers, Villar, Schoop, Diaz, Peraza, Corbin and the two catchers are available in trade.

Thanks for the update Boris.  I think, though, I have 8 waivers remaining instead of 7.  These are the ones I've used so far I believe, unless I'm missing one.

#1 - Hand for Cabrera
#2 - Wood for Bauer
#3 - Ryu for Jeffress
#4 - Strickland for Hand
#5 - Severino for Wood
#6 - Vogelbach for Span
#7 - Marquez for Liriano

Once able to trade him Willy Adames is also available. 

Open to trading Happ, but i'm growing attached to him and his multi-positional eligibility.

The feeling is that Werth is probably only a few days away from being ready to play, but the Nationals didn't want to play with a short bench. He should be ready to return in mid-June. Ryan Raburn will take Werth's spot on the roster.

(3 hrs ago) Bour (ankle) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.
Bour missed the past two games due to what is being dubbed as a left ankle contusion, and it seems like the Marlins want to have him sit out 10 days now rather than let the issue get worse by trying to play him through the pain. The move is backdated to June 5, so the first game he could play in is June 16 against the Braves. Tomas Telis was summoned from Triple-A to replace him on the roster, although Tyler Moore will likely pick up most of the starts at first base in his stead.

Madmen place Bour on the DL and pick up Nick Castellanos to replace.

Bah! A pox on the Dodgers and their roster-bending ways to run a 7 man pitching staff. Kenda Maeda is being moved to the bullpen. Kenta Maeda is legitimately very good and under Dodger control through 2023! Kenta has had some flukey HR results which have inflated his ERA this year. Anyone not in the hunt this year should probably be interested in Kenta Maeda.

The Divers are looking to trade Kenta Maeda. Grumble. The Divers would rather not, but the Dodgers don't seem to care about the Divers' rotation needs.

Anyone not in the hunt this year should probably be interested in Kenta Maeda.

I think there are a lot of guys who are going through really inflated home run rates this season.  I've got three guys like that on my team right now with Porcello, Lynn, and Gausman.  I was taking a look at Masahiro Tanaka a while back, and he's given up 17 in 66 IP this year.  John Lackey and Gerrit Cole are a couple of other guys whose peripherals are fine aside from ridiculous home run rates.

Makes me wonder if the baseball is a little juiced up this season.  There just doesn't really seem to be much reason for that many pitchers struggling with the home run ball who normally are better than that.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: JR on June 08, 2017, 09:54:01 am
Like when I traded for Lynn, my thought was he's pitching well and his home run rate is really inflated compared to what he normally does.  I'm starting to think, though, that home run problem isn't going away and might not be going away for a lot of pitchers this year.

Sorry about that half assed post.. I really think this has a lot to do with the launch angle stuff, wouldnt be surprised if pitchers with certain mixes are more prone to HRs now then in the past.

As HRs are up across the board, its expected that pitcher HR rates would go up... i do agree that its here to stay.

Yangervis Solarte - 2B - Padres

Yangervis Solarte will be placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right oblique strain.
Solarte suffered the injury on a right-handed swing during pregame batting practice Tuesday and had to be scratched from the Padres' starting lineup, with Chase d'Arnaud filling in at second base. This injury comes with unfortunate timing for Solarte, who was batting .317/.394/.667 with seven home runs and 15 RBI in 16 games this month. Ryan Schimpf or Carlos Asuaje will be called up Wednesday.

The Brats place Solarte on the DL and sign Hunter Pence to replace.

Post by: CurtOne on July 06, 2017, 11:17:46 am
Found the rule, and I think I see where we've erred.  Method, taking back Frazier is illegal.  I'm sorry.  We've been misapplying the rule.  We may have erred in a few other instances as well.

Here's the rule:

 When you drop a player to make room for another player coming off the DL, and you suffer another injury within the 48 hour span the player you have dropped is on the waiver wire, you may pull the player back to your own team without penalty.
This can only be done in case of injury.

Eligibility question.  I have Jose Pirela at MI, and he's primarily been playing LF since his call up in June.  He's primarily been a second baseman in his career, he's played 4 games at 2B since his recall, and this story said he would be playing "primarily in left field and at second base" for the Padres.

http://m.mlb.com/news/article/235665526/jose-pirela-has-three-hits-including-homer/

I'm just wondering if I can keep him at MI or not.

According to the rules, he must have 20 by AS break or you could appeal to the Circle if you found evidence opposite of your link above.

Post by: JR on July 11, 2017, 02:35:58 pm
Yeah I'd like to put in an appeal to the Circle just to see.  He was a June call up, so he hasn't had a lot of time for the Padres to use him at second very much. 

Actually my link above would be part of my evidence of being able to keep him at 2B/MI.

Just putting a feeler out there, but would anyone needing a shortstop be interested in Jordy Mercer or Paul DeJong?  If you're rebuilding, DeJong has 13 homers and an .894 OPS this season and is just 23 years old.  And a couple of contenders have shortstops who aren't performing nearly as well as Mercer's 287 points this season.

Just need a minor pick upgrade or some other type of small upgrade for the Brats roster.

With the trade deadline about 6 days away.

If a contender or anyone else wants... Donaldson, Schoop, Blackmon, Cervelli, kem, Haniger, Mike Montgomery, German Marquez and Diaz are available.

Looking for high end prospects or young MLBers for some, minor draft pick upgrades for others!

This guy can be had and be had cheap.  I'll even take an upgrade in a late round, even in the same round. 

If you're waiting on him to go on waivers, someone might get him before you, and it'd be your loss.  It might make the difference for the 2019 or the 2020 championship for somebody.

Sonny Gray, Yu Darvish and Brandon Kintzler all traded today on my team. I'm hoping all went to teams where they can flourish and score more points. I have to believe Yu Darvish will do better in Dodger stadium as opposed to that launch pad in Texas. I would imagine Kintzler will have more save opportunities in Washington and Sonny Gray more run support and better defense in NY. It does suck to have guys starts pushed back though while they travel to their new teams.

It isn't my intention to claim Dyson. It just seemed like a clear violation of our 1 and done rule.
I don't think combos are a problem, but once you've put a guy out there, he can't be re-listed as part of something else.

I also think the waiver process as we have it can be used to avoid a league vote on an agreed-to trade. We may want to adjust our rules to be closer to mlb next year.

Okay, Iowa is not claiming Dyson.

I think combo's are a problem, Iowa, for the reason you state in the next line.  It's a way of circumventing a league vote on a trade.

Quick question, with 10 players on the DL I now have players on the DL for other players I picked up. So if my original player comes back do I just release the DL players? I assume this wouldn't cost me a waiver, would it?  Here is an example. Brantley goes to the DL, I pick up Lonnie Chisenhall to replace then he goes on the shelf as well so I pick up another player. Brantley comes back I assume I can just release Chisenhall and the replacement player, right?

When a player comes off the DL, you can keep him and drop somebody as long as your roster is legal, you can simply dump him, you can dump his replacement and keep him.  No waiver is charged.

Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: JR on August 22, 2017, 01:54:54 pm
Maybe one way to do it is if you put a player on waivers after the trade deadline, you're potentially on the hook for say a 4th round pick or higher if you claim him. 

Just make it one fixed price for any player that's placed on waivers.


The reason why waivers "work" in MLB is that a team is potentially put on the hook if they claim a player with an expensive contract.  Players like Aaron Judge or Bryce Harper would never clear waivers in our league for a 4th round pick, which is how it also would be in MLB, but more marginal players who aren't worth 4th round picks would clear pretty easily, which is also how it works when a marginal player isn't worth the salary that's being paid for them.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: CurtOne on August 22, 2017, 01:59:15 pm
I don't see that solving anything.  If an owner wants to get something for a player he foresees not being able to keep, he should be allowed to do so.  That's all I've been doing.  I identified the guys that aren't sure things as keepers and offered them for a reasonable price.  A fourth rounder demand would have gotten few responses.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: JR on August 22, 2017, 02:09:57 pm
The thing is, though, when a player clears waivers for MLB after the trade deadline, you're able to trade him freely for whatever you want. 

If your scraps clear waivers if the waiver price was fixed as a 4th rounder, for instance, then you can trade that player to whomever you want for something that's more reasonable after that player clears.  It also makes it a little easier to do player for player swaps when other players clear waivers.

It's just a thought anyway.  Fixing the waiver price might have a few more pitfalls than I'm giving it credit for at the moment, though.

I may not remember all the discussion about doing waivers after the trade deadline, but I remember that we discussed that if we put guys on waivers and then if no one claimed that we could trade them, like MLB does, wouldn't work for us.  We use draft positions, MLB uses $$$$.  If we did what you suggest, JR, everyone would put guys on waivers for a #1 and then when nobody claimed, trade them...a clear attempt to circumvent our trading rules.  I thought at the time we had worked out a very workable solution.  Obviously Dave disagrees.  I've improved my draft pretty decently.  It's not my fault that some people ask for unrealistic returns.  JMO

I think it got shot down... but it is sometihng that is really needed... esp for teams in the hunt.

Post by: CurtOne on August 31, 2017, 02:04:12 pm
No, there is not.  If it's a sticky situation because you're one of the top teams, that's one way we distribute the wealth...by forcing you to make a tough decision.

You do have 7 days from the call up to do something.  As a result, you can try to trade or place on waivers.  Maybe one of your regulars gets hurt.  Remember after Sept 1, you only have to show that the player has a serious injury since teams are reluctant to DL with expanded rosters, to DL them for BBFL.

I'm hoping baseball does baseball things. 

If nothing else, all I ask is at the end of the upcoming month let me spend a day in first. Would be sorta nice after always being in second or third behind you and grr.  In return, I'll get rid of all my impending free agents so as not to challenge you anymore.
Okay Ray, you are in first, so tank your free agents and get out of the way!

How long does a player need to be out before we can DL him? If we can show he has sat a few games and will sit the rest of the week? Or must it be longer? What about a starter? If the word comes down Jake Arrietta's start will be skipped, normally they would 10 day DL him, but in September there is no need. So once the announcement is made can I DL him? I'm trying to get a grip on this since, seemingly, half my team is on the DL or hurt.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: Robb on September 05, 2017, 08:59:59 pm
By the way, here is an example, Matt Carpenter missed 2 games, tried to play and was pulled yesterday. He has been sent home from the Cardinal's road trip and will be out the rest of the week if not longer according to this article. Is that enough or do I need more proof?  Let me know, thanks. http://www.stltoday.com/sports/baseball/professional/cardinal-beat/carpenter-likely-to-miss-rest-of-road-trip-wong-definitely/article_1d5b5570-7775-5600-a436-c1294b177f49.html

by RotoWire Staff
(3 hrs ago) Flores will not play the rest of the season due to a broken nose, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

Flores suffered a broken nose after fouling a ball off his face over the weekend, and while there was hope that he would be able to play before the season ends, Thursday's visit with a specialist confirmed otherwise. The 26-year-old utility infielder will end his season with 18 homers and a respectable .271/.307/.488 line in 110 games for the Mets. Jose Reyes, Asdrubal Cabrera, and Matt Reynolds are all expected to help fill in for Flores around the infield down the stretch.

Jimmy Nelson - S - Brewers

Jimmy Nelson has been diagnosed with a right rotator cuff strain and partial anterior labrum tear and will miss the remainder of the 2017 season.
It's a brutal blow to the Brewers and their chances of making the playoffs to lose their ace. Nelson is believed to have sustained the injury while diving headfirst back into first base during Friday's game. It's too early to tell if he'll need to undergo surgery, or if the rest and rehab route will be able to alleviate the problem. He finishes the season 12-6 with a 3.49 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 199/48 K/BB ratio across 175 1/3 innings.

I know that's good news for the Cubs, but DH in the National League please. 

The Brats place Nelson on the DL and sign Chad Kuhl to replace.

Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: dev on September 19, 2017, 11:04:53 am
I will wait to activate Tseng, to see how he is used by the Cubs.  Since Montgomery was announced as today's starter, I figured by the act of omitting Tseng was starting, meant Tseng would be used in the bullpen, and since he has not had 5 starts, it would be allowed.  The scheduled starters for the Cubs do not have Tseng listed, but all this balances on Arrietta's return.  So, I will see how they use Tseng.

ok...thanks...that's what an appeal of the 'current rules' is all about...inferring from the environment.  10 days to go, not a scheduled starter, most here are Cubs fans, and know the rotation.   He hasn't made 5 starts at MLB level.  And based on Montgomery's last start...Tseng "aint" starting.  CBS has him listed as RP. Maybe they analyzed a little...
or put all Pitchers at RP...
Again, its the end of the year and the rosters are loosey goosey...Its not like I plan to have him at SS the whole season and illegally hoarding positions.

No biggie...my head is scrambled from last night's game anyways...Glass Onions will put Tseng at SP and drop Adalberto Mejia SP Twins.

Padres' Jose Pirela: Done for season

19 hrs ago | by RotoWire Staff

Pirela has been shut down for the remainder of the season due to a sprained left pinkie finger, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
It appears the finger ailment that has kept Pirela out of the lineup since Sept. 12 will end his season prematurely. This isn't all too surprising, as the Padres are well out of playoff contention, so it doesnt make much sense for them to push Pirela to return for a few meaningless games. The 27-year-old compiled a respectable .288/.347/.490 line with 10 homers in 83 games following his callup at the beginning of June, and manager Andy Green said he's "front of the line" to be a starter next year for the Padres.

The Brats put Jose Pirela on the DL and sign Jesse Winker to replace.

Matt Carpenter 3B | STL
Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: Shut down for season
by RotoWire Staff
(12 hrs ago) Carpenter (shoulder) has been shut down for the remainder of the season, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

The Cardinals were officially eliminated from postseason contention Thursday, and with that, Carpenter will shut it down and look ahead to 2018. He has been playing through chronic shoulder pain for a while and the team will check in on the condition of his shoulder with another MRI on Friday. Carpenter said he's confident that he will be able to avoid surgery.


If the circle agrees, please DL him and pick up Teoscar Hernandez LF | TOR at UP to replace him for the weekend.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: Robb on September 29, 2017, 09:55:56 am
I would also like to petition for Miguel Cabrerra to be placed on the DL.  He as not played since his diagnosis of 2 herniated disks 5 days ago. Here is an article on his diagnosis and offseason plans. http://m.mlb.com/news/article/256424688/tigers-miguel-cabrera-ready-to-get-healthy/ 

From the article: "He has an appointment scheduled for Monday with a specialist in Miami for a second opinion on his back, which has been diagnosed with two herniated disks. But unless he hears differently, the plan is for six weeks of physical therapy, treatment and core muscle exercises designed to stretch the back and strengthen the muscles around the disks.

Once he's done with that, he can move on to normal offseason workouts, but he wants to change those, too."

If approved I would move Joe Mauer to 1B and pick up Brandon Nimmo at UP to replace.

I think there is a difference between a starting pitcher making his last start and regular players with injuries not being placed on the DL because of expanded rosters like the above two moves I made. In the middle of the season Carpenter either plays or is on the DL. Cabrerra wouldn't sit for 8 days without being placed on the DL and being eligible under our rules for replacement for fairness. I didn't even petition for a replacement for Tim Beckham because the team hasn't officially shut him down for the year, even though he hasn't played this week and in the middle of the year would definitely be on the DL. So essentially I am playing with 3 or 4 men down because of the 40 man roster, not because of the team I picked or the way I managed them, which is what should decide our winner, imho.

Post by: Ray on September 29, 2017, 12:41:58 pm
I guess, to me, 3 days or 1 start isn't really replace worthy. This is all just end of year craziness and i guess i just accept it.  And I had actually checked rules on it a few weeks ago and was curious.   The rules say extended period and I guess you could debate how long that is. 

I'm not really one for debating rules so not sure why I'm even posting.  Just sorta seems like big can of worms.  Especially to say applies to batters but not pitchers.  I think at this point, you sort of let play out.  Actually, in truth, I can understand carp, but Cabrera's MRI is after season and he still listed as day to day.

ii.  There is an exception made after MLB expands rosters after September 1.  At this time, if an owner can provide verifiable proof that an un-DLed player is out due to injury for an extended time, said player may be placed on the owner's DL.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: CurtOne on September 29, 2017, 01:06:31 pm
Extended time meant the equivalent of a 15 day DL (now a 10 day DL).  Can't grab another player because a guy has an owie and will be rested for a day.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017

End of season cleanu-up
Congrats to the pack leaders for a great season; thanks to all of you for keeping up with your teams.

Some tasks: after today, you may list those players you wish to drop because they won't make your 13 or you may be able to trade.  By the end of the World Series, your players must conform to our normal roster limits.  (In other words, if you have 3 outfielders on the DL, you have to trim to our limits on OF and UP's  If you have 6 SP's and 4 SP's on the DL, you have to trim to at least 6, and so on.)

We have tried various times for Winter meetings and not found a real fruitful time.  If we do it in October, too few owners are paying attention.  If we do it in January, we get complaints that trades were made and rosters constructed thinking no major rules changes would be put into effect.  Please voice on the board or in an email what you would like to see as far as meeting time period.  Any suggetions for next year, please post at the BBFL under Winter Meetings.

Robb and Ray, the Circle has reviewed the issue and feels that to be fair and to keep this from getting too messy, we will only consider errors and CBS failure to calculate in a timely fashion for the month of SEPTEMBER only.  Please give us any relative point changes in BOTH directions for just SEPTEMBER.

It is the responsibility of every owner to verify that his requested changes were done and that he was given the proper service time.  CBS sometimes is erratic in how they credit the day of the change. 

We congratulate both of you for a great race.  We don't wish to drag out the finish.

Well. That makes it easy then. Rob wins.  As I told you the other day, I had a couple instances in the first half I knew about.  But i can already tell you i have nothing in Sept.

I agree folks should keep up to date on all this stuff...which is why I was surprised it was even an issue anyway.  I almost posted yesterday I wasn't about to go thru all that stuff to find them cuz something tells me, there would be some other reason to give it to rob and I'm glad I only got a little looking done to have timeframr changed.  I think it's really cheap to change the timeframe to exclude when I told you I had them if your going to be going back to be looking for discrepancies at all. People should have paid attention at time if they wanted them changed.

I still can't believe he got a special circle approved 3 day dl replacement either.  We never replace guys for 3 day injuries.  It happens all the time.  I had it happen in Sept myself.

Let's say the Cubs have a 2:00 game on a Friday.  Everyone else plays that night.  Owner X makes a change at 9:00 am but a Circle member doesn't have time to do it until 2:15.  Many times, most times, all the time, CBS says a game has started, regardless if the players involved are or are not playing in that game, and relegates the change to the next day.  I "cheat" and often change the date when I make the change to the day earlier to keep CBS honest, but it doesn't always work.  And then there are the times that the guys and I just don't notice a post, especially if it's from JR, and we don't get you points until days later.

The best way to prevent this is to check your fantasy scoreboard daily.  If the change you made isn't on the roster scoring that day, CBS hasn't done it yet.  Point it out.

The Circle and I decided on just September to not drag this out longer, but if it's not fair to one, it's not fair to either.  Let us ponder anew.

Post by: Robb on October 04, 2017, 10:03:09 am
I don't want to win on a technicality. On the other hand, the September move in question was a start by Mike Leake, I posted it in plenty of time, I asked a second time when the move wasn't done and then it was posted 2 days late. I wasn't sure how the system worked with backdating points until now so I was unaware that I wasn't awarded the points for that win or I would have said something at the time. Normally none of this matters. The fact we had such a close race this year makes it matter. In the end someone will be unhappy. I would think we should try to find out who scored the most points this year and declare that person the winner regardless of what month the discrepancy was in. But that is just my opinion. I will follow whatever the circle decides. I still can't believe my team tanked so bad those last two days. It should have been over anyway.

Post by: Ray on October 04, 2017, 07:45:55 pm
I will admit that perhaps I got a little persnickety in my last post and I apologize.

I had just had an unbelievable comeback Sunday...the kind that hardly ever happens. I was extremely excited and then to have it ripped from me because of a circle ruling just sucks(ed).

Basically, no matter who wins now, it will be because of a technicality and ruling, not because of some great wild, epic finish.  It cheapens the whole thing.  Verifying backdating and all is a good thing, but it should be done before the last day happens.  To me, that seems common sense and it never occurred to me any of this would be done because it should have already happened if someone wanted to do it.  At that point, you've accepted what came before. Otherwise, it's not decided by the players playing as good fantasy sports should be (really seems like I missed a pun there).

I hadn't really planned to push the 3 games thing but had planned to address it at the winter meeting so folks know when that line is in the future.  Grrr, I think, had 1 bat miss the last 6 games and another the last 7 and didn't replace them.   If he had, there's a decent chance he is in second going into that last day.  I am assuming at his motives and why he didn't tho in it being cuz of the last week and such short time and all.  I honestly don't know.  Rule does say extended time tho so that might need to be changed if you want to do it for 3 games.  Either way a cut off line should be established so this rule isn't abused in the future. What happens when someone requests 2 games, or 1?

Rule also says we need “verifiable proof” that the player will be out.  Miggy, while we all realize probably doesn't play again, didn't meet that.  The only thing Detroit said was that he was day to day.  If the circle wants the right to infer someone isn't going to play, that rule needs changing as well.  This rule has bitten me, so I know it is frustrating when you know someone isnt going to play, but I think it should stay as is and proof be required because otherwise it's too easy to abuse.

I realize I'm probably being nitpicky but I have always thought before now that, while the circle might be tough, it is was generally fair to everyone.  But it seems unfair to hold dev to letter of the law on tseng and bend them for Rob.  Heck, they are usually not bent at all which is why I was so surprised.

ha ha Dave I admit I had a rough year. Happens when your best pitcher dies and you have 6 or 7 keepers basically do little or nothing for you. Yes I'm talking about Jorge Soler and his 30 pts.  Thought KC would do him some good.

"  Apples and oranges.  The rules clearly state that if a minor leaguer is used as an SP all year, he must be an SP when he comes to the majors.  No room for real discussion and the Circle was unanimous.  The Miguel Cabrera situation was totally different and again the rule operated as it's supposed to.  If a MLB team has an injured player and is refusing to DL him, but there is clear indication he won't play again, we will NOT penalize our owners.  We would do the same for YOU. 

As a coach I hated hated hated it when a parent came to me with "I think my little Johnny should play more" when I had just reached that conclusion myself.  It meant poor Johnny was going to sit more because if it looked like a parent could bully me into playing their kid, my life would be hell.   There's a point to my story.  I was ready to rule in your favor, Ray, but, you know what, now you f'king stew awhile.  The guys in the Circle try to bend over backwards to be fair.  I know for a fact that every damb one of them has at some point screwed themselves rather than to appear to be unfair.  We may make mistakes, but we don't favor anybody.

Enough for now before I say something I'll regret.

At present, I will concern myself in how to deal with CBS so it doesn't skip points.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: CurtOne on October 05, 2017, 01:21:37 pm
Looking at all angles, in an effort to come to the FAIREST outcome, we are cruising into unfair territory.  It is the responsibility of each owner to monitor his points on a regular basis.  As Commissioner, I will take the blame for not reminding owners more often to do so to make sure they were credited properly.  I apologize for tainting the season's end by trying to guarantee we had the "right" result; I shouldn't have.  The Circle is discussing ways to prevent this in the future in how we act on requested moves.

We take into consideration that as often as CBS fails to register a change soon enough to GAIN points, it often fails to register soon enough for an owner to actually LOSE points.  It comes close to balancing in the long run.

Robb, you ran a great race.  Congrats on a good year.  The irony is, if you hadn't made the Vargas move the day before, you would have won.  Good example of how getting the move done can screw you.

The Circle declares Ray the Champion of the 2017 season as he earned it.  Congrats, Ray.  Sorry I interrupted your celebration.  My intentions were pure.  :)

He'd have to accept the qualifying offer or sign within the window in order to not be a free agent under our rules.  If he can talk to other teams he becomes a FA here.  The rule used to be that if a guy signed with his current team at any point you could keep him, but that changed a few years ago.

First Issue up for a vote:

dev's suggestion: New free agent deadline.  Instead of the current FA postings, the new deadline for free agents to acceptance or rejection of the Qualifying Offer.

Circle discussion: Curt is opposed.  We often lament insufficient good players in the draft, allowing "have" teams another five days to keep their players, makes no sense.
Dave, 82, and Chiman feel that when a player re-signs with his team, an owner shouldn't lose him.

Other options were also discussed, such as the forfeiture of a 1st round draft pick if a player signed after FA day with his original team and the owner wished to retain him.

Current vote:
Yes: Dave, 82, Chiman

No: Curt
Circle members certainly can change their votes if they like another idea better.

Explanation: As a reminder to old owners and to explain to new owners, during the season, rule changes are suggested to the Circle for consideration.  If the Circle approves, it comes up for a vote to the general membership.  We do it that way to keep days and days of tedious argument off the board.  If the five members of the Circle can't agree that the idea has merit, the odds of it passing, already down 5-0 usually, are pretty slim.

To pass, all issues must get 9 aye votes.

Owners who are salivating over Ohtani: the Circle has been in communication with CBS.  At the present time, anyone who drafts Ohtani will have to choose whether he is a pitcher or a hitter.  They are working on a logarithm to allow both, but it does not look promising.  We have suggested to them to allow leagues to draft him twice, one as a hitter and once as a pitcher.  Stay tuned.

Curt,
 
Thank you for contacting us back.  Your suggestion is actually one of the options being considered.  As previously mentioned, it is still a bit too early to know what will be done yet.  We appreciate your patience.  
 
We appreciate your continued support in making CBSSports.com your number one choice for Fantasy Sports.
 
Regards,

Out of curiosity can anyone look up the history of the league?  I know I started this thing with old spreadsheets and manually looking up stats in USA Today's Baseball Weekly rag.  I know we wont have any history going that far back because I didn't save it digitally.  This is what I did dig up from our Football History on the Bears board.  I know we did Baseball before Football...

*************************************/**********************************************************

Wow.  I just looked at this on CBS.  We have a little tradition.  I had to add Fantasy bowl 1, 2, and 3 winners because we were not using CBS back then...

LEAGUE CHAMPIONS
 
2016 - Downward Legion
2015 - Packer Smackers
2014 - Pekin Dragons
2013 - BASTARDS
2012 - BASTARDS
2011 - Hog Butchers
2010 - Apache Renegades
2009 - BearFans Buzzards
2008 - Hog Butchers
2007 - Gamunu United
2006 - Gerbschmidt
2005 - Lavender Flamingos
2004 - Lavender Flamingos
2003 - Bills Bombers
2002 - The 54s
2001 - Payton's Place
2000 - Team Old Style
1999 - Buff's Stuff

We have been playing this league almost 20 years.

The 6 OG's:
Bill's Bombers
Team Old Style
BASTARDS (AALWAYS original name)
Payton's Place
Pekin Dragons
Hog Butchers (I don't know if he should be included since he quit during the first ever draft and then  rejoined later in the draft)  ;)

Hell we have owners now that were not even alive when the league originated.

Downward Legion is trying to be the third team to ever repeat.  We have not had a threepeat.

Not one team has more than 2 championships.

At what point do we find help for Boris?  When he knew "jamie", I thought that was sorta cool....an Aussie with multiple personality disorder.  But, is he going to even be able to properly function as an owner when there are 3 guys in his head biding for time during the draft?   I think there will need to be lots of lists for when the other 2 are missing or we are going to regret this come draft time.

All Owners: need your vote.

In response to many requests to tighten up our rules regarding the DL and that some owners over the past seasons tend to abandon and not take care of their teams, the Circle is recommending this rule:


Owners have 7 days to move players who have been sent to minors or the DL by MLB or the players will be dumped into the pool.  Players who have been brought up from the minors or are off the DL will also be dumped in the pool after 7 days.  Day 1 is the first day that CBS alerts the owner that a change has taken place.  Day 7 deadline is midnight Central time.  The same 48 hour window for others to pick up a dumped player applies.  Owners may reclaim their players during that 48 hour window at a cost of a waiver.  The 48 hour window starts from when the player is sent to the pool.

Aye: Curt, Dave, 82, Chiman, Boris]
Nay:

Yes.  We put this in as the final effort to be fair to the original owner, so, in a sense, he has 9 days.  If he hasn't recovered by then, he deserves to lose them.

Issue 1 is passed.  Two more issues are forthcoming shortly.  One deals with waiver numbers and end of season issues, the other deals with our waiver system after the trade deadline.

We received multiple requests regarding minor league slots, but the consensus of the Circle was that our current rule works just fine and does what it was designed to do: force teams with an excess of talent to shed some of it.

Please continue to pay attention to voting.

Second Issue:  The Circle was petitioned to create an atmosphere where we might avoid the "disputed" finish that we had last year.  It was the consensus of the group that burning waivers for pitching changes the last month contributed heavily to missed changes, wrong dates, and, perhaps, lost points.  We wish to discourage that in the future.  To do so we are recommending the reduction in waivers from 15 to 10.  We also will commit to rechecking points the last week of the season only.

Rule: Owners have 10 waivers for the season.   Only the last 7 days of the season are reviewable for accuracy of moves.

Aye: Boris, 82, Chiman, Curt, Jamie
Nay: Dave, JR, ISF, method, Robb, grrr, tico, dev

The 10 moves are voluntary on the part of the owner.  If teams manipulate service time and the 10 day DL, that has no effect on your 10.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: JR on January 29, 2018, 08:30:23 am
My problem with it is that finding guys like Luis Severino or Alex Wood on waivers is part of the fun of being in a fantasy league.  15 is already a pretty strict (but fair) limit on that.  We're already at roughly a little over 2 claims per month, which is a pretty good limit.  Just because teams that are contending for the title are taking advantage of a loophole shouldn't make things more restrictive for the other 12-14 teams in the league.

There are better ways to close that loophole, IMHO.  I think having a 7 day limit at the end of the season like you and Dave were talking about is a good idea.  Or just cutting off waivers altogether the last 2 weeks of the season might not be a bad idea either.  That'd be better to me than limiting the chances teams get for finding that hidden gem somewhere.

I understand that, but in a league where you need 5 RPs and can easily waste 7 just looking for the new hot "closer of the month" 10 is really restrictive. like JR said, limit waivers last 30 days of season if need be. the loop hole of using moves for pitchers isnt much of a loophole as the SP can easily throw up a negative points game with the changes in the HR profile for MLB.

As with others, I believe 10 waivers is too few. Therefore, no.

As others have said, I would gladly support limitations on waivers in last 30 days or stipulations that owners must hold a recently-acquired-via-waivers player for a week or more, etc., or any other measures to control for what happened at the end of last year. But I don't think that reducing the number of waivers is the right solution.

With 8 no votes, issue fails.

Since most of your objections were discussed in committee, I'm not sure it will be resurrected.  Sometimes we have perceptions and not facts.  In the last 3 years, we have only had 5 use all 15 waivers.  3 were this year by our leaders and the other two were Smurf in '15 and '16.  In the past 3 years, out of 48 owners, (16x3), 40 used 10 waivers or fewer.  Damb stats.

We have one more proposal we are waiting on.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: JR on January 29, 2018, 01:31:51 pm
I think part of the reason why people have waivers leftover at the end of the year is because we get so few of them to begin with and people are cautious about using them.  You can't exactly go crazy grabbing every free agent that looks interesting when you only have on average 2.5 to play with every month.

By the way, I used all 15 last year, and I wasn't anywhere near the lead by time it was over.  Granted this probably speaks to my overall poor use of them and probably makes the case that I'd be better off having only 10 to use.  Still, fantasy baseball is more fun when you get to tinker around with your team, so even if I suck at picking out free agents, I'd rather have more opportunities to make bad roster decisions than fewer of them.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: JR on January 29, 2018, 01:45:17 pm
Honestly, I think 15 waivers is the sweet spot for the right number to have.  It's small enough where you can't be making free agent signings every other day, but it's just enough where if you feel strongly about a player, you can feel comfortable pulling the trigger and still feel like you have plenty enough moves left over if someone else interesting comes along.

Issue 3   In response to several calls for adjustments to our after deadline trade and waiver process, we are suggesting the following.  Please vote aye or nay.

This is the rule from BBFL.   We are suggesting changing the red to the blue.


They make a trade as we have always done and the trade is put up for vote on the board via the anonymous poll option at create-a-forum BBFL site.  Owners will be alerted that a vote is needed via mass email.  Each owner will have one vote; the voting is anonymous; failure to secure 9 votes vetoes the trade after 48 hours.  If the trade fails, the players involved cannot be traded again or placed on waivers.  (See below.)  Those players may be dropped into the pool, as during the regular season, should the need arise.  (A minor leaguer is brought up, a player is taken from the pool, owner has too many players due to an approved trade, etc.)

2.  They may post on the board a player they are placing through "waivers" along with their expected and required return.  In 48 hours, any owners who have met or exceeded that required return are awarded the player.  In case of several offers, the owner lowest in the standings at the time of the waiver is awarded the player.  If no offers are made, the player is withdrawn and cannot be offered again on waivers or in any trade.  (In short, be realistic with expectations.)

Please note that the regular waiver wire that applies to players new to the pool does not apply to this process.

Rewrite:  .


1.   They make a trade as we have always done and the trade is put up for vote on the board   Owners will be alerted that a vote is needed via mass email.  Each owner will have one vote; not voting counts as a yes vote, therefor only “protests” or “no’s” need to be made.  If only 7 no votes are recorded, the trade passes.

I'll vote Aye on #1.

In MLB, if someone clears the waiver wire, they can be traded to anyone at that point. They don't have to clear again. If we're trying to mimic MLB where we can, we would modify it to just "but can be traded".
Having said that, I can see owners asking for outlandish returns, getting no offers as expected, and then being able to make any deal they want or have already constructed behind the scenes.

I'm going to vote Nay on #2.

If I'm reading the message I just got from CBS, they've made a decision on Ohtani.  You may draft him and place him at either SP or DH and even place him at a position if he gains enough appearances at a position, like RF.  From the wording, I'm not sure you can continue to switch him from SP to DH...you may need to decide where he plays and leave him there unless you do DH and then can move him if he gains the above appearances at a position.  I will review more and report back.

On a reread, they will allow switching from hitter to pitcher and vice versa, but how are we going to manage that in our league?  Whoever gets Ohtani has to go a player short?  Can't have a team with an additional position player when he's hitting or an additional pitching spot when he's throwing.  Ideas?
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: method on January 30, 2018, 04:40:02 pm
i have been wondering how we'll deal with this!  It is a great puzzle for the circle.

Othani has great value in a weekly lineup league... but in ours his value is nebulous without significant changes.

Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: JR on January 30, 2018, 04:55:22 pm
You could just set up 26 man roster limits for everyone at CBS and have every other team be a player "short".  The owner can then just move Ohtani back and forth depending on when he's pitching.

Another thought is we could re-institute the PU position and the owner can move him back and forth that way too.

I think whatever team gets Ohtani should get both the hitter and the pitcher versions for one roster spot.  The Angels get both versions, so I think the fantasy team should too.

I would agree if this were a week to week league... but in our format giving him points for both is effectively giving a team an extra roster spot. NFBC is telling players to declare pitcher or hitter for a week, but not both points... we should try and follow NFBC

Curiosity question since it looks like someone drafting Ohtani will have to choose one way or the other which way to go with him.

If you draft him as a pitcher this year, could you keep him as a hitter next year?

Still waiting for clarity from CBS, but I would say no.  I don't think you'd be forced to have him at one or the other all season.

I'd like to suggest fun option for ohtani... Or other 2 way players for our league.... Let the owner who has him... Flip ohtani during dl moves.

Example. Owner a drafts and declares ohtani a hitter. The he loses a sp during the season... Allow the owner to flip ohtani to sp and pick up a hitter at that time... Can revert at another dl move to hitter if owner chooses.

would help mimic his unique value to our league.

That's what I suggested to CBS, but they seem to be saying he goes to one owner and can be moved from pitcher to position player by the owner.  That's going to require us figuring out how to do it.

Madmen have a few intriguing options up for trade for draft pick upgrades. I'm pretty devoid of draft picks at this point so i'm all for some sort of upgrade.

Mitch Haniger - Sadly hurt a lot last year, when he played he preformed at high lvl.
Jose Peraza - Finally has a full time job at SS. While it seems he's been around forever, still only 23.
Domingo Santana - had a 30/15 season last year and hit .278
Jordan Montgomery - 5 competant pitches. 12.2 sw-str rate good for 12th in MLB last year. Plays for the killer yankees offense.
Teoscar Hernandez - Has a starting job in Toronto this year, had a great debut last year.
 

Also willing to pair Eloy + Carrasco and anyone above for an upgraded SP (the upgrade being to Carrasco)

Yasmani Grandal - Coming off 22 homer season as Dodgers catcher
Trey Mancini - 3rd in AL Rookie of the Year voting, .293 BA with 24 HR last season
Yuli Gurriel - Projected for 500+ points, hit .301 with improving walks and low K's during the second half of last season, everyday player in a strong Astros lineup

As you may note, buff has chosen to depart.  I'm sorry he feels the way he expresses, but he's had a run of rotten luck so it's understandable.

We need to make decisions.  Most of the Circle wishes to contract the team, but I feel that should be a league decision as much as possible.  When you vote, please don't drool over what players of buff's might become available to you, vote what you think is in the best interest of the league.


If we vote to contract, our next move is decide how to disperse his team, whether dumping the players into the pool or having a supplemental draft.  If we vote to find another owner, we will have to set a deadline for that to happen or we automatically contract.

Please vote:

1. Contract the league to 15 teams.
2. Look for a new owner.


Avoid specious arguments.  We don't play head to head so an odd number of teams is fine.

Pretty damb sure that Dave will vote to contract, so the pressure will be on grrr.  As Head Commish I'm tempted to rule that we will seek a competent owner for one week and, not finding any, we will contract.  All you voting for keeping the status quo, the pressure shifts to you to find someone...and not just anyone.  BTW, the real trick, as another owner has pointed out to me, is to find someone willing to take THAT roster on.

We need to keep moving.  Dave needs to run the lottery and he can't until he knows how many teams are involved.  Keepers are due in 3 weeks, and you need to know the trade value of your picks, especially if we finally contract.  Please pay attention, log on often, and do what's best for the league.

My hopeful replacement's answer is no.  Even with the proposed roster switch.

Method, I thoroughly appreciate your desire to maintain the structure, history, and integrity of the league.  I respect the guys who wish to contract; they have solid arguments, but my preference is not to contract again.  We were at 20, then 18, and now 16 for about 10 years.  However, as some of the Circle argue, we would be better off with 12 dedicated and active players than 16 and several rarely show up once their teams struggle.

We need to vote on how we will contract IF we must contract.  4 days left.

I've asked Dave and Boris to summarize the benefits of supplemental draft vs. moving players into the pool.
This if Boris' view.  I will post Dave's when I get it.  Be prepared to vote in the morning.  Choices:
A)     Throw the contracted teams players into the pool for the draft (minors players into minor league draft, major league players into major league draft), or
B)      Have a supplemental draft for the contracted teams players
I believe the best solution is to throw all of the contracted players into the pool for the regular draft. My reasons are:
By throwing all players into the pool, it still gives the teams picking first a chance to pick up the best players (e.g Kris Bryant) while expanding the pool slightly.

My issue with a “supplemental” draft is how to run it fairly? If we do the lottery, then have a supplemental draft, the team winning the lottery and having first crack can then realistically get two first picks – one in the supplemental draft and then one in the “real” draft – meaning realistically a team finishing 8th – and lucking out in the lottery – could end up with Ohtani AND Bryant – hardly fair to the other teams finishing at the bottom.

 There could be other scenarios for a supplemental draft, but each one penalises other teams and weighs the picks too heavily in the first picking teams favour IMO.
By throwing all players into the pool, the lower finishing teams still get a crack at the best talent without penalising the rest of the league.
While I don’t have a massive problem with a supplemental draft to assist the lower teams, there would have to be some balance and I don’t see a fair solution that doesn’t penalise all but a few teams.

One thing to think about throwing the contracted players into the draft, though, a lot of teams have already traded early round picks who might not have if they knew Kris Bryant, Javy Baez, Yasiel Puig, etc were going to be added to the draft pool.  Teams who might have traded a middle of the first round pick would probably be kicking themselves if a guy like Baez was available around that time.

Tough call on how to do it equitably.  I think a supplemental draft with the 15th place team picking first is the way to go, myself, and EightyTwo can consider himself lucky.

If EightyTwo got even luckier and wins the draft lottery, it wouldn't be any different than buff if he had won the draft lottery.  Either team would still have both Bryant and Ohtani (or whoever they'd take #1). 


Definitely a tough call though.

Post by: Dave23 on February 07, 2018, 09:04:10 pm
My thoughts on a supplemental draft.

We would conduct it much like the Rule V draft is run. 15 teams, in order from worst to first. Each team either takes a player or passes. After Round 1 is completed, we repeat the process thru subsequent rounds until we reach a point where no team makes a pick in any given round.

Thoughts:

In lieu of going worst to first based strictly on order of finish in 2017, we could do the last two seasons, if that was considered to be more fair.

The point of the supplemental is simple: to build up the lesser teams in the league, making the league more balanced and keeping more owners vested over a longer portion of the season (which has been a problem for quite a while now). The gap between the top teams in the league and the bottom teams in the league is wide enough that no one player will come close to making a dent in the deficit. Truthfully, no two players would, either. The way our league is constructed, team rebuilds can take a number of years to bear fruit, and only with quite a bit of luck.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: CurtOne on February 07, 2018, 09:27:11 pm
Excellent.  Thank you, Dave and Boris.

Now we can vote.
Please read both Dave and Boris' posts.
Then vote, not on what players you mivht get, but on what's best for the league.
Please vote before noon on Sunday, our deadline for finding another owner,
IF we end up contracting and we vote for supplemental draft very soon so that owners can trade and adjust their tosters in preparing to declare their 13.

Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: CurtOne on February 07, 2018, 10:21:49 pm
Should contraction occur, now and in the future, this procedure will be set in the rules:

A. All players from the contracted team(s) shall go into the main pool to be distributed during the main MLB and minor league drafts.

B. A supplemental draft shall be had prior to declaring an owner's 13, from worst to first, and continuing until no one wishes to draft.  Owners who see no benefit to their rosters may pass.

Dave and Boris, make sure I have worded that correctly.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: CurtOne on February 07, 2018, 10:49:12 pm
It occurs to me that Dave didn't say that the supplemental draft would take place before the 13 were declared, but that is, in my mind, another good argument for supplemental.  It would mean more of the top owners having to release good players into the pool if they take from the contracted team and then have to declare their keepers.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: Dave23 on February 07, 2018, 11:31:27 pm
Indeed, which means for the most part that teams will be dropping a 400 point player to grab a 450 point player.

I mean, we’re talking about a team that was so bad, the 15th place team was closer to 1st than to 16th...

One thing that prolly needs to be decided upfront if 'B' wins is whether or not milb guys can be taken in supplemental draft. I could see some just assuming major then someone takes Senziel and someone above would have taken him.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: CurtOne on February 08, 2018, 11:12:24 am
The contracted team's entire roster is subject to either draft.  In A, mlb players into mlb draft. Minor leaguers into milb draft.  In B, all go into supplemental draft.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: ticohans on February 08, 2018, 11:21:21 am
If a minor leaguer is taken in the supplemental draft, are they placed on the selecting owner's major or minor league roster? And if major league roster, does the player then have to make his team out of spring training or risk being lost back to our FA pool?
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: Dave23 on February 08, 2018, 11:58:52 am
Only caveat with players taken in supplemental draft is that they MUST be protected...whether that’s on the major league roster (1 of your 13), or in your minor league keepers.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: Ray on February 08, 2018, 12:03:10 pm
Are there any rules concerning trading them then if they must be protected?
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: Dave23 on February 08, 2018, 12:23:24 pm
The protection follows the player in the case of a trade. You can trade a guy you select in the supplem3ntal draft, but he must then be protected by his new team. Of course, this should be assumed anyway, else why would you trade for the guy?

If a true minor leaguer, his minor league team.  Dave's caveat is important.  Don't take any players you don't plan to keep.  That would be truly unfair to those drafting behind you.

If the current vote remains the same by noon on Sunday, throwing contracted team players into the pool will become the law of the land and the procedure we will follow in contracting buff's team.

I will not declare a winner, however, until noon, in case after pondering the situation, anyone wishes to switch their vote (either direction).  I think it's that important a decision in terms of balancing the league.

If those folks who voted for B are sighing deeply, go find an owner before noon on Sunday.  :)

You will have all picks I believe CBJ - you can trade to get to a solid 13, or if you think you can do better in the draft, you could jkeep less - bearing in mind your roster will be filled in the later rounds when it is slim pickings. In reference to your picks, I traded picks with Buff when he picked up Joey Gallo from me. The commishes circle  is currently dealing with what happens to my pick, but either scenario will see you keeping Gallo AND your picks with no penalty. And let's face it, you already will have Kris Bryant.... and he's sooooooooo dreamy..... great to have you aboard (providing you pass Curt's exam) CBJ!

CUBluejays has officially accepted buff's team.  I did one thing abnormal with his ownership.  He gets the first and only 3 picks in round 13.  Since his current roster is weak, he will keep 13, but at the end of the draft, if he sees anyone in the draft that he likes more than some of the weak sisters he was forced to keep, he will be allowed to swap 3 for free before DL's are allowed.  If you don't understand, I'll try to explain better.

As always, CBJ will have a 48 hour moratorium before you can bombard him with trade offers.

Our rule on contraction is still due to take effect at noon on Sunday.  At that time it will be officially placed in our rules for any future contractions.  We can't always count on a last minute save like this one.

So I believe CBJ and I have agreed on the Alfaro for Castro deal.  I accepted on CBS.

Confirmed.

JR, you **** me off.  You're the reason we don't want guys to trade with new owners.  You stole his 9th rounder.  I should make you give it back and let him keep your 10th rounder besides.  Shame on you, taking advantage of him like that.

No.  The rules on not trading minor league picks and not trading newly acquired minor leaguers in the minor league draft was for a reason.   Didn't we move the minor league trading up from July 1 to June 1 last year?
Title: Re: BBFL 2017

A few players available for draft pick upgrades.

Teoscar Hernandez available for a 9th.
Peraza available for a 7th.
Haniger available for a 5th.

Two guys i am reticent to trade, but need draft picks.

Nick Castellanos - The not so greek god of hard contact. Joined the FB revolution in the second half of last year.  First half - 32.6 FB%, 248/313/433 Second half - 43.6 FB%  299/329/553. He will likely lose 3b eligibility with a move to the OF. 3 years from FA.

Domingo Santana - hit 278/371/505 with 30 hrs and 15 SB. only 24 years old, under team control for 5 more years.

would like a 2 for either of these guys with a 7 going back.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: JR on February 12, 2018, 04:16:12 pm
Here are my guys on the trade block.  Aside from Wood, I wouldn't need substantial draft upgrades, so if you have a reasonable offer, I'm more than happy to hear it. 

Alex Wood - 16-3, 2.72 ERA for the defending NL champions.  Would need a good hitter or high draft pick in return.
Adrian Beltre - .915 OPS last season for the future HOF'er
Shane Greene - Locked in as Tigers closer, 2.66 ERA, 73 K's in 67.2 IP, 9 for 10 in saves after Justin Wilson trade
Yasmani Grandal - Coming off 22 homer season as Dodgers catcher
Trey Mancini - 3rd in AL Rookie of the Year voting, .293 BA with 24 HR last season
Yuli Gurriel - Projected for 500+ points, hit .301 with improving walks and low K's during the second half of last season, everyday player in a strong Astros lineup
Yangervis Solarte - Projected for 525 points.  Not entirely sure why, but maybe CBS is smarter than I am and you can reap the benefits for a very low cost pick

Attention: Ohtani rule

We've been discussing how to handle Ohtani this season.   Since we're the ones who have to make the moves on the board and have first hand knowledge of how tricky making moves can be, we've taken CBS' advice and have developed the following:

1. When someone drafts Ohtani, they must declare whether it is as a hitter or pitcher.  He must remain in that position until the end of the draft, minimum.
2. During the season, if the owner has a DL situation occur, he may flip Ohtani from pitcher or hitter to the other at no cost.
3. During the season, if the owner wishes to switch Ohtani which requires dropping someone from the roster and picking someone from the pool, it will cost the owner a waiver.
4. At all times, the owner's roster must stay legal. (He cannot leave a spot open in his roster to provide for Ohtani switching.)

How do trades for draft picks work on CBS?  Do I need to propose something to the JR or just wait for Curt.  I'm not whining like JR, just wondering how it works.
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: CurtOne on February 12, 2018, 04:55:24 pm
When you propose a trade of picks on CBS, it's usually on the proposal line after the players are checked.  Half our trades are negotiated via email.  Proposing and finishing trades at CBS is okay, but it's easier on us doing CBS to have it posted here, clearly and distinctly...especially if picks are involved.

CBS is NOT clued in on how we do our draft picks.  We have to keep track of those.  82 will soon start putting the draft together, and he counts on people to list all the pick trades at BBFL so he gets it right.

Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: CurtOne on February 15, 2018, 11:52:08 am
The minor league draft will be soon.  The Circle wishes to hold off the MLB draft as late as possible, later than normal, because so many have not yet signed.  Unsigned players cannot be drafted.  March 1 is traditionally when keepers are due.  Look for the minor league draft to begin March 1 as well.

tico, just a heads up, Circle is currently discussing the eligibility of both my Fulmer and your Urias.  The original intent was to just look at the previous year, but if we do go back further, Fulmer has 35 innings and Urias a 100. 
Title: Re: BBFL 2017

Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: CurtOne on February 16, 2018, 02:35:51 pm
tico, I guess the difference between your guy and mine is that Urias should NOT have been a minor leaguer last year.  My recollection is that you kept him in your 13 which allowed you to send him back down when the Dodgers sent him down.  But his 77 innings disqualifies him from being kep in your minor league keepers.  Fulmer, on the other hand, has never exceeded the limits either year he was up.  That make sense?

Post by: Ray on February 16, 2018, 03:15:03 pm

As much as I love his name, I'm going to cut ties with Rowdy Tellez and would like to have Chance Sisco as a minors keeper due to his 18ab/21pa during his cup of coffee late in the season.

I have a question about the minor draft. Cuban and Japanese players aren’t eligible, but what about Cubans that are in the minors without any MLB experience?
Title: Re: BBFL 2017
Post by: CurtOne on February 24, 2018, 09:01:18 am
Cuban players who have signed with a major league team and sent to their minor league program ARE eligible for the minor league draft.  The rule was aimed at the few who were considered major league ready.

In the meantime, Urias' status as keeper isn't due until major league keeper rosters declared, correct?
