    New Dynasty Baseball Roto League

    I like dynasty, and I like roto, but I think the timing is wrong for me to add another startup league to my portfolio. If this doesn't take off this spring, I'd be willing to check in again before next season.

    LOL Come on Bull! Hit me up with Luzardo, Bieber, Bellinger, Rutschman and Tucker!

    2020 MLB Trading Block

    Yep, fair point. I would say my goal is the medium game...start to emerge from the cellar dwellers this year, but I think my pitching is probably still 2-3 years from competing at the top. I'm looking for guys on that same timeline...top prospects ready to go now/within two years. But I...

    Sometimes I just get a little caught up in my head creating an argument and then I don't relax until I voice it. It's a character flaw of mine. :p It's true that my point isn't to blast that offer. We all send starters and feelers and even lowball offers sometimes. Sometimes we even...

    Trial Ballon/Balloon Results! Feel free to ignore this one, guys! LOL. This is pretty long-winded and self-indulgent…I just want to blow off a little steam and get it off my chest. So, in light of the Hendriks and Springer deals, in our chat you guys suggested that we a) post when guys become...

    Not sure when Bull's pick will come in, but I'm teaching tomorrow afternoon until around 3:30. Can get to my picks after that if I'm up. Trades are on the table if anyone is interested

    Hey Killer, you mention considering trading prospects for a 1st round pick in this year's draft. I have 7 of those, and I am looking for prospects. Are you open to moving Urias, Gallen, Adell or Greene?

    If we can add picks in the dispersal draft, I'm up for that too...also have a lot of draft picks in the regular draft available.

    2020 MLB Trading Block

    About half a dozen of you mention looking for picks on the trading block. I've got 13 first-rounders over the next few years that I'm more open to moving now. Looking for top prospects but also willing to consider established stars who are still on the upswing of their careers. Not willing to...

    I appreciate the empathy! I don't get the sense that we're going to change precedent here, or that I can do much beyond frown if a couple of my lottery picks over the next couple years turn into mid-rounders instead because that's what the league decided. But it isn't a lot of fun feeling...

    2019 Offseason Thread

    You're right of course. It isn't nothing, and compensation is better than nothing! But, say for Bears & Bull, they're in the lottery, 2nd & 3rd overall this year, so IF things remained similar next year, or 2022 (granted they might not), that's an 8 or 9 spot drop in the order, which is pretty...

    2019 Offseason Thread

    At the end of the day, it's your league and if you guys want to go by precedent, I don't have much recourse. And I'll accept whatever the outcome is. Gotta try my best to make my case that if precedent is poor, a change should be made...if I lose that debate, okay. I may be just too close to...

    2019 Offseason Thread

    This is true...teams do get better and worse. It's possible I could be arguing for a compensation pick that ends up being worse than mid-round. If a new manager ends up with, say, the 14th pick, I'd end up with the 15th. I'm okay with that possibility because it's tied to team performance and...

    Also, if we do decide we're working out a way to bring in a 19th team, Jason says he'd gladly join in. Understands that the talent pool might be a little thinner with 3 owners instead of 2 coming in, but doesn't mind and would like to play. It's fine if we don't end up going that route. Just...

    2019 Offseason Thread

    I'll piggyback on this idea and spitball a thought that you guys may or may not agree with. I think the idea here is not to punish me (or ANYONE else who traded for future picks,) because a couple other guys who owned those picks left the league. The idea I think we're trying to achieve is not...

    LOL I have Bull's 1st next year too if he's gone as well. Which would also evaporate I guess. I mean...guess I kinda feel like building for the future may have been a mistake.

    2019 Offseason Thread

    LOL I was focused on the future ones the whole time cuz I have 4 of those. I feel like I'm gonna lose this battle and maybe I'll sleep it off and be okay with it. :) But not cool that if these guys trade you Judge, Snell, Gallo, etc last year, you benefit immediately, then keep all that value...

    Well, there are 18 1st round picks each year, right? Next year there will still be 18 1st round picks, and presumably the year after that as well. Why are those picks changing from my team to someone else's just because of new owners coming in? If Stubby or Bears traded you a player, does...
