A friend of mine has a 25 y/o son.   Every time I hang out with them, he's drinking 99 Bananas or craft beer.  Although I'm a Jack fan, most everyone likes Crown so that's usually safe.   I wouldn't bring in a twelver of PBR.

Regarding bullpen usage, if you have a pitcher who can pitch 140 effective innings out of the bullpen, do you hang on to him to have more roster flexability?

As long as he's cost-effective.     I insisted on Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Player Profile: Kennie Simpson in a trade for that specific reason.

Would for seasons of under 3.00 era, 1.10 WHIP, and 140-160 innings, what would be your salary limit?

Sergei1991 won his 4th HBD title. Is this an alias of Sergei91?

Since I use a lot of low IP SP(160-180 range), I have no problem paying a 140 IP RP 6-7m a year. 

No but both are stupid hookey fans, eh?

What is your opinion on claiming players on waivers after the dead line with no intent to trade for them?
7/27/2013 7:15 AM
I do it all the time and it's done to me with regularity(I assume because I'm not contacted with a "What you want?" TC).    I think it's a legit strategy.    I'll claim players that put me over the cap just because I can.

Just had a player score a second DITR bump.  He now projects as an outstanding defensive C.  Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Player Profile: Thom Austin  As far as I know the only thing I did to help generate this has been to ignore him and not play him regularly.  How rare is a second DITR? 

7/27/2013 12:42 PM
I've never had one and I've only seen mention of them a couple of times.   I think they're pretty rare.

http://www.whatifsports.com/HBD/Pages/Popups/PlayerProfile.aspx?pid=5179359 has had two DITR.  How do you think he projects? 

Also when I try to paste from WIS clipboard nothing happens. I am loading the clipboard from the profile... I wonder what I am doing wrong?

DITR are tough to project development patterns. 

Click the little WIS emblem, you should get a message and then click it in the post box.  Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Player Profile: Robin Houston   I sometimes leave the player card open.   Seems to help when it's not working.

I signed Steve Castillo because I figured he deserved another go at a Low A ring. What do you think has caused him to stick around for so long? His plucky can-do attitude should greatly impact the Low A team chemisty, wouldn't you think?

Tino Martinez another roid user? Looks like he had some rage with the Marlins this season, no?
7/29/2013 8:27 AM
Steve has no family, no friends, no hobbies, no marketable skills.   His only reason to live is minor league HBD ball.  He hopes to die on the field and be buried on that exact spot.

His career arc doesn't really indicate 'roid use but it would not be surprising.  I have a hat signed by Tino.  I won it on the concourse at Legends Field(now Steinbrenner) in 1996.    Throwing a ball at a target.   I was a semi-celebrity for about 2 hours on that concourse.
