okay, I like the idea, and I built the team, but my team total of 54 million for my rosters is telling me to walk away instead of entering a team, I have 4 pitchers to fill my squad but I already have all "their" best pitchers on the team, the 4 pitchers likely wouldn't even get me over 60

am I doing something wrong because that's not even remotely close to 100 mill?

i didnt come anywhere close to 100 million for either of my teams, and much of that salary is wasted on plate appearances i'll never use.

as long as you can draft enough total IP and PA at each position to avoid fatigue, you should be in a similar boat to the rest of the league. the random nature of the league means some people will get more talented rosters than others.

There are multiple teams in the low $70s this time around. Some of the more expensive teams have a lot of redundant offensive players. So as long as you have enough pitching you should be OK.

I drafted your team. The "best" roster I came up with was $72.9 mil. It could be a definite challenge, but in this league nearly everyone competes.

You can replace Paul Pettit as one of your mandatory pitchers, since he only had 30 innings.

Well I guess cardsin chickened out. It is a "random" league, so sometimes you don't get what you want.

signing for a random league and then refusing to play because you don't like the roster you were randed should be grounds for a permanent blacklist from any sort of league that involves randomness

it puts everyone else at a disadvantage. had he randed the '27 Yankees then he puts the team in and whoever's in his division misses the playoffs. he's free-rolling the rest of the league.

Can we have an owners thread started with the names of people who joined a random league but did not enter their team?  That way commissioners can know which players to ban from their leagues.  Kinda like a negative rating on eBay.  Thoughts?

Out of curiosisty, did cardsin respond to your sitemail about the league?  If so, what was his reason for not joining?

He said he didn't want to throw away his money. I tried to tell him that arvidjosef has two teams with similar salaries.

4/15/2014 12:05 PM
That's ridiculous.  Just remember his name for a future league.  I still think a thread for this should be posted by someone who runs random leagues.

Sadly I am declaring this highly competitive league officially DEAD.

Thanks to all who have played, especially those who have had multiple seasons and teams.
