Obviously only 1 of those three can count, but ESPN hasn't shut down the SP slot from scoring points as you can still score with one pitcher. Thus for Friday it counts all 3 pitchers for the total, and then shuts down the slot for Saturday and Sunday, thereby allowing 14 starts, at least seemingly.

However, it appears that ESPN retroactively checks the stats at the end of the week and disallows the last two, chronologically, of the 14 starts. This is also applicable to the 64 games started for hitters as well.

So the final total isn't in until the wee hours (stateside) of the morning, Monday morning, which makes sense with the different numbers that you viewed.

Dave
Thanks for the info, makes sense that the numbers are subject to change until everything is checked, and yes, I was checking in the morning my time, so early hours back in baseball land.

And on another note I played in my first game of the season for my team here in the UK (Southampton Mustangs II), had 1 at bat, single, RBI and scored a run. I also scored a run as a pinch runner, so not bad!

Holy heck, looks like the perfect injury storm for the PEI Yankees. I already have one starting pitcher in a DL slot, and I check in today to find Paul Konerko, Evan Longoria, Nick Swisher, and Justin Morneau listed as Day to Day. Kind of looks like Longoria and Morneau will go on the DL sooner or later, and Konerko and Swisher may be back the later part of the week.......but right now that leaves FOUR empty slots in my roster........Grrrrrr! Not to mention the bulk of my pitchers start on Wednesday, giving them only one start this week. Doesn't look like a good week for the Yankees..........


Thems the breaks I guess.......

I was about to sympathize but then I saw the last part of your name which says yankees...

Just kidding. It is early yet, lots of baseball still to be played.

This just in: I suck at this. Combination of FBB being WAY more involved than the fooseball version, and my flat not having much time to commit to it (changing jobs, moving across the country, etc...) just makes it tough. At least it's a long season. Maybe I will win one week before it's over. lol

At least the Rays are doing well. lol

While we're all fighting over the crying towel, I got 2 on the DL, 1 suspended, and one more about to get on the DL. Combine that with the rest of my team is way below par and I am seriously thinking about changing my team name to Astros.

Hang in there. It is a looong season, and teams turn corners left and right.

I have not been able to keep up with doing the weekly awards as in years past. Othon, if you have the time to pitch in there, that would be awesome. Otherwise, I'll try to bring it back up to speed every so often.

OK guys I'm done. It's clear no one is interested in any kind of fair trade in this league which really takes the fun out of it for me. I've tried for the last four seasons to make moves but everybody wants to improve their team dramatically without risking anything. I can compete just fine without trades but that's not the kind of league I want to be in.

Thanks so much for including me over the last few seasons. It's been nice to be in a league with some people I have brewing in common with. Best of luck to you guys, enjoy!

I will keep setting my line-up and trying to compete until you guys find a replacement.

-Cheers

Hey Jeremy,
Sorry to see you go. It has become a bit stagnant since our inaugural season. I'm sorry it is not as active with trades. I will admit to being a bit protective of my roster, and am trying to work out a trade with another member that is mutually beneficial.

I appreciate your hanging onto the team until someone is found to take over. I will be contacting people who've posted in this thread.

Best of luck to you.

Again, sorry to see Jeremy leave the league. Best of luck to you.

We have found someone to take over as manager. The Perlicks are now known as the Sluggers. Welcome FreshZ into the league.

I updated the weekly trophies up until present. With a young child at home, it is hard for me to keep up with as I had in the past. I'll do my best to keep them as updated as possible.

As I alluded to in my last post, I've been a little too coveting of my players, and I think that many of us do the same. It has been a bit stangant both in here and on the smackboard on the league page. I hope that we can all look into how we can spice up the league a bit. If anyone is looking to deal, get in touch!

I should chime in here. I enjoy the league, but I don't have the time or skills to hang with you guys.

I will happily play it out (and after our move in July I will have more time too), however, if there is someone who thinks they can rescue an 0-6 team I will offer it up for grabs.

Longo Penas. Lemme know.
