I'd like to play, and will do so if the league is still needing players when I return from my vacation near the end of the month.  I didn't want to commit if the league was going to fill up....

I'll pencil you in...

My guess is we'll take at least 2 more weeks to fill.

To the top...

If you don't think that this simple rule reduces cookies, try building a team.....

Nitpicky question about mopups. What about owners who us them to start a game and then switch to Mopup? does that go against the spirit of the rules?
7/17/2013 7:14 PM
First of all... It's not a rule about fatiuge, it's a request.  There is no penalty.

What I want to avoid are the owners who draft 450 PA guys and put $200k scrubs out there in 30 games, choosing to lose 80% of those games so that they can win 80% of the other games.  I want to avoid the 1000 good IP and 5 $200k pitchers to suck up losses. 

If you want to use a tired mop up to save the rest of your staff, that's fine.  If you are forced to put a starter on 40 PC and go to a mop up once in a while, that's OK, I guess.  Injuries are on, you can't replace the mop up, you'll have to deal with him getting injured and one of your other pitchers going into the game.

The key point:  You're being asked not to bring a fatigue oriented strategy to this league.  Each of us knows what that means, and it's on our own conscience if we don't work with it.

...I know who you are and I saw what you did...

Hey...I've put together one of my 'normal' teams with PA's that Manage themselves without fatigue (defenders in late innings & platooning at TWO spots)
The problem is: I've only got a little over 5200 PA/162
I know I can manage this team in the fashion you request.
No way would I attempt to play a season with 1250 IP/162 -- (I'm at 1370) ---1250 sounds like sandbagging to me...
 ...but for what it's worth 5500 PA/162 sounds like OVERKILL.

When you get a league #; Will I need to adjust those PA's to get the team entered??
7/19/2013 4:56 PM
Sounds awesome, i will play please!
7/19/2013 10:31 PM
Hey, biglenr put me down with a team...
7/19/2013 11:42 PM
Dumpster... Yes, I put those requirements in the team wizard.  You need them.

Talismen25 & batgems... Welcome

Just returned from a weekend of camping, I camp probably 15 weekends a year, usually rustic with no internet or phones.  And I love it. 
7/22/2013 7:41 AM

I now have 300 more AB's.sitting on the bench with no skills, and something had to give so I sold 40 quality innings... down to 1330 IP's.

7/24/2013 5:43 PM
You'll be suprised how you need those PA with no AAA. 

I assume that means you're in.  I'll add you to the list.  Welcome.
7/25/2013 8:41 AM
You listed me twice...I was #5 already.
(i know...still camping)
