MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2021 - Regular Season
 
It's almost that time fam! Anybody like their team? Looking around I see several that look pretty good to me. Gonna be fun! Good luck (if you're into that sort of thing) and remember to have fun out there kids!

TONGO 03-27-21 10:15 AM

No Rays on my roster at all, none, nada, zero. Yarborough was the only one I drafted and I dropped him for John Means, whose got a similar repertoire but pitches deeper into games.


Losing Jiminez, who knows if he would have been great or disappointing? A young player you never truly know. I feel the 3 options I now have to fill that void won't bring me as much runs, homers, or RBIs, but ill do better in Avg, OBP, and stolen bases.


Afrer 11 years in a 12 year league i dont feel comfortable saying anything at all this early in the season. My track record is make a declaration and then a betting pool is created for when ill break it, not if. Then theres the sport itself which will provide numerous swerves. Of course im looking forward to it all. Fantasy Baseball is like a good long book, so long to where itll take 6 months to finish it.

Anyone here like to try other leagues? I joined this crazy league that doubles up on every position. No bench spots. Everybody plays. 20 team league. The draft is crazy important. I think a little over 500 players were drafted! Pretty interesting.

This is my only one. One time i did a league where it was a points system, and defense was included in the scoring with batting and pitching. I thought I could play that league just like this one without making adjustments. That was a big fail.

Yoda 03-31-21 10:12 AM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2021 - Regular Season
 
I'm in another one, an auction/keeper league, first year though.

I played in another as part of a baseball Facebook group I was in a couple of years ago. The season was really fun and dramatic, but it didn't get renewed after that.

Sedai 03-31-21 10:32 AM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2021 - Regular Season
 
My prediction is that now that my team has to play a full season again, they will slide in somewhere around 5th place, as is their way... ;)

@TONGO RE: John Means - I like him, but his schedule looks rough, so I went with the guy who has perhaps a slightly easier schedule, and has peripherals similar to Bauer, but is not actually Bauer. That's my reasoning behind the Means drop, anyway.

https://i.postimg.cc/sXjDWJ8J/Boyd.jpg

Yea, the guy runs into HR trouble, but I think he has good stuff, otherwise.

Yoda 03-31-21 11:00 AM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2021 - Regular Season
 
Yeah, he does. I had him for awhile a couple of years ago and took a chance on him last year. Might break out one of these days, or might be one of those many maddening guys with lots of talent but one fatal flaw he can never get over. Who knows.

Considering the cost (I think I drafted Means in one of the last rounds of the draft, then picked up Boyd as a FA), I think the upside is there. Oddly, he got the nod for opening day, but I don't know if that speaks more to his skill or the shabby state of their SP roster...

Speaking of that, I have 4 SP going opening day, which I don't think I have ever run into before. I usually opt for the pocket aces strategy, so it's usually two fellas on the mound on APR 1.

Yoda 03-31-21 11:17 AM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2021 - Regular Season
 
Yeah Boyd is a classic "nab late/off waivers and see if he figures something out" guy. I'd have rostered him awhile ago except, well, there's too many guys like that to choose from this early on.

And yeah Detroit figures to be really terrible.

TONGO 03-31-21 06:32 PM

Yeah John Means is getting the mound opening day also, but its against Boston. So I dont feel like starting hims a good idea at least for tomorrow. Ill have to sometime though as he is an AL East pitcher.

Sedai 04-01-21 10:16 AM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2021 - Regular Season
 
Well, still looking forward to today's games, even though my ****ing SS is already hurt. ONE day before opening day, the guy goes down. He was having a great Spring, also.

I see one game has already been postponed due to COVID.
Nationals-Mets is off.
Red Sox-Orioles were also ppd due to weather.

Yoda 04-01-21 01:43 PM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2021 - Regular Season
 
Yeah, not a great start. Nats-Mets already postponed tomorrow, too, as a result. The New Look Mets have to wait a couple of days.

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2021 - Regular Season
 
One thing I totally forgot to bring up, but would really love to do, is combine Saves and Holds into one category so people don't have to be at the arbitrary mercies of managers and can just focus on finding talented relievers. I played with SVHDs in another league and it felt much better. We'd need a replacement pitching category, of course, but there are some good options there.

Anyway, I'll try to remember to bring it up next year.

Powdered Water 04-01-21 04:30 PM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2021 - Regular Season
 
I like that. Let's do it. I wonder if a W/QS category isn't also gonna see more life as well pretty soon. Seems like the days of a starting pitcher going more than 6 innings is going the way of the dodo.

TONGO 04-01-21 06:09 PM

I like the SVHDs and WNQSs ideas as long as we do both.

Yoda 04-01-21 06:11 PM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2021 - Regular Season
 
W/QS has the complication that in lots of games a pitcher would get both.

Powdered Water 04-01-21 06:36 PM

True. But it would also open up a lot of opportunities for long relievers that for the most part are just used to smooth out ratios. I'm not sure if I like the idea yet but it might get some legs.

Yoda 04-01-21 08:59 PM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2021 - Regular Season
 
I can see it being a thing if the trend towards "openers" and stuff gets really really pronounced, to the point where the modern idea of the rotation is mostly defunct. Which could totally happen.

Nice. I can see your scores after day one. I saw the Nats-Mets series is off

Wyldesyde19 04-02-21 03:30 PM

Rough start for Freedonia, with Marte and Garver combining for 0-9 and Losing Donaldson to a hamstring injury after only one at bat.

Yoda 04-02-21 03:34 PM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2021 - Regular Season
 
Rest of the lineup did great, though. On net I'll take it. :up:

The Donaldson thing was pretty funny, though, yeah. I was watching as it happened. Hopefully the update today'll provide some good news.

TONGO 04-02-21 08:50 PM

Yes! I took a chance on Means after all and it paid off nicely, sweet. Got my first QS too. Just looking at his stats he must have pitched a gem.

How yall like this new Add/Drop suggestion feature on top of the Waivers page? Always good to have something new to laugh at. They want me to drop Trey Mancini for Nate Lowe, oh yeah ill be sure to do that.

Yoda 04-03-21 11:38 AM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2021 - Regular Season
 
I think it's kinda silly. I guess it may occasionally make me think of someone I wouldn't have, but I'm generally not a fan of anything which does that kind of work for people. I like my fantasy sites to make it easy to find things and easy to make changes, but I'd rather they leave the decision-making itself to the owners, since that's the whole game.

Man, what a duel we've got going in Milkwaukee. I've got Berrios in this league, and Burnes in another, and they're starting again each other...and they're both perfect through three. Each batter for both teams has come up and made an out, all in a row. The two pitchers combined for 10 consecutive strikeouts after the first handful of batters.

Yoda 04-03-21 09:40 PM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2021 - Regular Season
 
Wow! 5.5 innings, both pitchers still have no-hitters going. They've both got one HBP, but nothing other than that. Burnes has 11Ks through six and Berrios has 10 through five.

Wyldesyde19 04-03-21 09:45 PM

Someone’s about to get a QS

Yoda 04-03-21 11:17 PM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2021 - Regular Season
 
They both did, yeah.

Buxton homered to break things up for Burnes, and he came out right after, fair enough. But Berrios got pulled after six no-hit innings, and he was only at 84 pitches, too.

Wyldesyde19 04-04-21 12:02 AM

Pulled a little too early there.

Wyldesyde19 04-04-21 02:46 AM

So, I’m not familiar with scoring on fantasy baseball, but I noticed a few times there were heavy penalties. Freedonia earlier with something like -21 points (he recovered) and Roid or Roid not hit with -21.5.
What causes the heavy penalties?

mark f 04-04-21 04:28 AM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2021 - Regular Season
 
They're not penalties - they're a loss of points in the standings based on how all the teams did in the 10 competitive categories for the day, Other teams' points go up so there is a net gain of zero in the league each day.

Yoda 04-04-21 12:47 PM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2021 - Regular Season
 
Yeah, and because it's early you see wild swings early on. Like, if half the teams don't even have a stolen base yet, one of those might jump you seven ranks all by itself.

By midseason, and late in the season, even moving up three or four in a day is a big deal.

Wyldesyde19 04-05-21 12:25 AM

Ohtani reminding everyone he still can pitch AND hit.

Yeah, I mean I can't imagine it's totally serious. We've had people occasionally win the league (and semi-often come close) while being 10th or 11th at the All-Star break.

Nice thing is it’s still the first week. Plenty of time for your “hitters” to figure things out and get out of the slump.

TONGO 04-08-21 02:19 PM

I didnt have Trea Turner for the first 3 games of the season and my squad started strong anyway. Really impressed by the pitching and hoping its not a phase.

Bleh, Berrios looks great again but comes out one out shy of a quality start. That last inning is such a big one.

The White Sox broadcast booth is great. Consistently smart and delightful. Just now:

"And the perfect game and the no-hitter are gone in one fell swoop...ever see a swoop that wasn't fell?"
"No. And you never see two fell swoops, for that matter."

Steve Stone was ahead of the curve on a lot of the sabermetric stuff. Think he was with the Cubs before this. Always liked him.

I was concerned about Buehlers longevity. I think this is going to be his first complete season, and it would have taken an Ace for me to have moved him regardless.


This is the strongest start ive ever had in pitching categories, which are a bear to recover from if you do poorly.
