Sunday evening is good.
Sunday night after 7 (preferably after 8) works best for me.
I can't do Saturday.
Well, I recognize about half a dozen of the top 100 rated guys.
My draft strategy is to draft as many guys as possible from my favorite childhood team. I'm going to run out and buy a cap tonight so I can really cheer them on.
I'm not saying which team that is (it's not the Tigers) because thieves like Roscoe and Gazoo will try to steal my players.
I'm fairly certain I can get someone to join (Squirrels or this other guy) if we are short an owner. Just let me know.
I will. Thanks Tater. We never know if someone will drop out.
Draft times are incredibly limited on Sunday March 25th.
We can't draft between 6:00 PM and 10:45 PM
Is anyone into an AM or early afternoon draft?
Is there another good day to draft?
Alternately, we could start a week late... :(
Crap, if we are talking next weekend I could do it Saturday am. I don't leave for work until 3:00 pm eastern that day.
If we do weekdays my work schedule is much more flexible.
Seriously, I'd like to participate live, but if it messes other people up I'll let the computer do it for me. Like I said, I'll eventually win either way. :P
No, that would totally stink.
If the weekend doesn't work, most of the weekdays in the evening work for me...
I'm flexible. Whatever is decided is fine with me. I'll adjust although in the middle of the day on a weekday probably would not work for anyone.
Any day of the week is good for me after 8pm except next Saturday.
Friday night? March 23 at 7:00 PM.
Objections? We have a Spurs game at 8:00.
Please reply back soon!
7 probably won't work for me as I work until 6 and then will spend some time with my daughter before putting her to bed.
If I can't make it, no big deal. I can pre-rank.
I work 2-10 mountain every day except tomorrow this week, so I'll need to pre-rank unless I can get someone to switch with me (remote). No big deal though.
Will the league be set up soon so I can start pre ranking?
can someone help me out here? i'm searching everywhere trying to find out what categories stand for, but they all assume you know how to play baseball before you play fantasy baseball. Yahoo is totally useless for explaining the categories to a non-baseball person.
Can someone please fill in the gaps or correct any mistaken guesses of mine? thanks!
H/AB - I'm guessing this is Hits/At Bat - how many time you batted and hit the ball
R - Runs
H - Hits
HR - Home Runs
RBI - Runs Batted In
SB - Stolen Bases?
AVG - No idea what this average is of
IP - Innings Pitched?
W - Walks?
CG - Don't Know
SV - Don't know
K - Don't know
ERA - Don't know
WHIP - Don't know
I don't fully understand the scoring categories. Is walks a positive or negative category? Are there any negative categories? (like turnovers)
Now there are two types of pitchers am i right? Starting and Replacement? Starting does most of the pitching, then the replacement fills in for like an innings or at the end, is that the gist of it?
Any other basics someone can pass along would be most excellent. thanks.
I'll try to think of more things and maybe do another post if I do, but you asked good questions which basically cover it. If I wasn't clear lemme know.
Walks Hits Inning Pitched
It's one of the newer statistical measures.
Think PER for pitchers.
Those are not the cats per se that we are playing.
Here is our list.
RBI (Runs Batted In)
The above are ALL positive stats.
ERA (Earned Run Average = Earned Runs / Innings Pitched)
WHIP (Walks+Hits allowed divided by Innings Pitched)
WHIP and ERA are negative stats. You want to be the low man on these. The rest are positive.
Thanks Darth/Roscoe. That was a great help. Just a couple i'm still not sure on.
