Success is all relative. I've decided that my benchmark for success is to not lose every matchup.

So far still got something to aim for!

My "team" got spanked....By a Redsox fan at that!

Anyone know of a real high bridge, preferably over concrete, with low guardrails?

It was just a bit of beginners luck.

Is it really impossible to directly drop a player from the DL? Do I really have to drop another player to first activate the DL player and then drop said player?

Seems a bit unnecessary to me.

Unfortunately, I think that's the case. It's a bit wonky, yeah.

So you can drop players on the DL without having to drop others. It is in fact very simple, though not intuitive IMO.

Simply click on "Drop Players" which is immediately next to "Manage DL".

Two weeks of basically being "mercy ruled" and Bayou Brewers Front Office is pissed! Several FA movements made over Sunday morning coffee and management has issue a statement that ALL players are open for trade.... Exact word was "no trade clause is bull s___!"

Can we all be honest for a moment? The 'Untouchables' section is a crock. No one is truly untouchable. I can propose a trade for any player on that list that the owner would accept immediately. All the 'Untouchables' list is, is a list that requires a premium to be paid.

/endrant.

Guidry, I am always open to trade. Feel free to propose something and we'll see if we can work something out.

I actually forgot that the "Untouchables" list existed. I thought you were referring to the Undroppables list.

Man, I'm so annoyed with myself. I thought to myself that if my beloved Red Sox lost yesterday at least I had Floyd and Thornton on my fantasy team to ease the pain. Check the scores today and some idiot (me) had managed to bench both of them for the game and so had around 40 points on the bench. And then I go and lose the matchup by a margin of (can't remember but) less than 40! EDIT: Just checked and it was a little over 50 so I guess the mistake wouldn't have made any difference! EDIT 2: I just checked again and the margin is less than 10! I don't understand the scoring!

Lesson learned... or maybe not.

You played Bridge Town IPA, I believe. The reason that the number that you lost by is fluctuating so much is due to BT IPA streaming way too many Starting Pitchers.

Let's say that you have started 11 out of your 12 starts after Thursday and on Friday you start 3 pitchers. 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.
