I made that mistake before - silly thing.
OMG ESPN Rules.
I was just checking out my roster for next week, and went to see this week's box score, and it updates in real time on the matchup page. How freaking cool is that?
Yep, no need to pay for live scores here.
Only things I don't like about ESPN are there is no Watchlist, so it makes it hard to keep an eye on guys you want to pick up, and the box score just seems a bit hard to read for mine. I think the numbers are too big and the categories aren't in the order I'm used to.
Indeed. Not enough to get you the win vs. me last week, but still cool.
That's cold hearted bro.
Roscoe, you lost to LINWOOD???
He beat me in advanced a couple weeks ago too. I was like......I mean, I never lost to Linwood before...in ANYTHING!
Maybe it's a different Linwood or something?
My Keeper League team is not very good. I drafted for the future. Plus, like several people, I blew the draft to begin with.
The nice thing about Keeper League, is that even if your team is not good, you have to keep managing it. Looking for up and comers, diamonds in the rough, narrowing down the 3 guys you will keep for next year...
the more i look back on it, the better i'm liking how my team was drafted - forget the superstars and get a bunch of stars. i mean, i've been killing with robinson, durant, duncan, sheed, bosh, joe johnson, butler, martin, and that's with sitting boozer. robinson is playing great under d'antoni, and i've got some nice keeper choices with young stars in durant, bosh, and johnson.
My team is like yours. Only difference is I've had quite a few injuries and never been able to get all my guys healthy at one time. It's been hard for me to make any moves either because I literally have nobody that is droppable. I only get to pick up an extra player every now and then when someone goes on IR.
Seriously. Look at my team and tell me who would you drop. (apart from Ty Thomas who I added because Maggette went on IR).
Hopefully I'll be able to make a second half run. I might have to start making some trades.
I feel your pain Webz. I have like 4 guys on IR. Brand, Soft as Charmin Peja, Kaman, Gooden and Okur is day to day. I can't get a break.:dizzy2:
Man, I've had 4-5 injured guys the last 2 weeks.
Wahhh. Injuries are part of the game.
My teams in keeper and advanced are on a roll. I have much greater hopes for the keeper league, but Devin Harris and Amare Staudamire both look pretty good on the advanced squad.
If some of you are looking for a playoff push, I may have some nice vets available for young talent. Win now, or play for the future? Bird in hand, or two in the bush?
Week 9 Review is now up. Enjoy.

How many roster moves can we make throughout the season? How many times can one add/drop players?
There is no limit for this. As many as you wish.
The fact it is a weekly league mainly prevents people from churning players as it has no effect.
I'm not sure it has no effect. If you look at the 3 people with the most transactions. They occupy 3 of the 4 bottom spots in the standings.
'No effect' as in 'creating an advantage' thanks Bill!
This keeper league is top notch. Except for Lamebeer. Thank the heavens his buddies Jammertina and Darth Tutu decided to sit it out.
I was wondering why this league has been so fun. Now that you mention it, the void of JammerDarth is definitely the key. Plus, it's nice to have an automatic league doormat in the Microwave Corndogs.
