Did you just tell me to be a man? Tell ME I am changing the topic? To apologize because I am wrong?
My statement which was responding to your comments on the Rule V: "People lose good players in the Rule V all the time. Only the studs get put on automatically"
Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Player Profile: Bart Hogg
Rule V selection last February. Not a stud, but a middle of the rotation starter.....or a good player. Proof people lose good players all the time. I can find more examples if I cared to spend the time.
Your idea is unanimously thought to be garbage. Instead of having a discussion with me YOU started attacking me personally. Bush League.
I am not attacking you personally. I pointed out the flaw in your reasoning.
You brought up Rule 5 as an example to support your position. I pointed out that what HBD has done with Rule 5 supports one of the points I've tried (unsuccessfully) to make. That WIS has & probably should break from following MLB rules exactly when that's better for the game.
You said you disagree because of Reason X. I pointed out Reason X isn't a valid. Might be 1000 other reasons. That's not one.
You responded by changing the topic to something similar, but different.
That's what a lot of people do. First they make up their minds. Then they try to come up with stories to defend that position. If a flaw in their story or reasoning is exposed, they go sideways and often dig in twice as hard with their initial belief. LIke a kid on a playground caught cheating or saying something that wasn't true putting their heads down, shuffling their feet, and saying something like, "my dad can beat up your dad".
Can we not debate the merits of the player you put up as an example? Yes, he's fine. Would have a role on most teams. You can pick up players of similar in the remains of the FA pile for probably a few hundred thousand more than $327K. They're important parts, value for money, but not huge difference makers.
I admire you'd post an example of you obviously taking advantage of someone who doesn't really know HBD. You didn't cheat. I'd have picked him if he was there when my Rule 5 pick came along. But,seriously, you're post was specifically about FA bidding, but was generally about what's good for HBD. I admire the sentiment but is this really the specific example to use? Fleecing an inexperience player? That's for the overall good?
