Yeah, since we're talking about it I'll throw out my best good faith Pros and Cons of auctions:

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2023 - Signups

I haven't done it with Yahoo, but my ESPN league is an auction and it works fine. There's a timer, it counts down, whenever someone bids higher the counter goes up again so everyone can react, etc.

Re: The MoFo Top 100 of the 2010s Countdown

I keep making new posts rather than taking my time and saying everything I want to in the previous one(s), so uh, sorry for that, but re: obsessiveness and genius.

One of the reasons I respond to...

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2023 - Signups

Auction is everybody gets a budget (usually like $260), people take turns throwing out player names and then people just bid on them. That's basically it. If you're willing to blow 40% of your budget...

Re: The MoFo Top 100 of the 2010s Countdown

Yeah, for what it's worth I didn't get the impression that the film was endorsing anything. Maybe a teeny tiny bit, but I thought of it as daring to ask the question of whether certain levels or...

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2023 - Signups

I kinda understand that, though I don't think of it as a "fix," just an improvement.

The very very short, simplistic argument is: in an auction, everybody gets a shot at every player. If you...

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2023 - Signups

My schedule can fill up unpredictably on weekends, but for the moment I have no strong preference, so I'd certainly be willing to go with the 5th instead if it increases the number of owners who can...

Re: The MoFo Top 100 of the 2010s Countdown

Elaborating a bit now that I have a moment:

I saw Whiplash and loved it immediately. No big surprise there. Years pass and I, of course, have to ask myself if it holds up. A film that kinetic,...

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2023 - Signups

I'll also go ahead and float the idea of an auction draft again, just in case enough people have come around to the idea. I can list the pros and cons (I think I can be pretty fair about both) if...

Re: MoFo Fantasy Baseball 2023 - Signups

Obviously it's rare for spots to open up, but with Mark unfortunately passing, there will be at least one spot available.

Also open to having a bigger (IE: 14-team) league, as I think we've had a...

Time for fantasy baseball again.

First thing's first: if you're not in this league already, there may be room for you! I should warn you that it's a competitive league, so you'll want to have...

Re: Everyone Seems To Pay More $$$ For Cable/Streaming

Update on my earlier posts: I've been happy I ditched cable. Once or twice I'd been very slightly annoyed I couldn't just toss something on, but it's been quite rare. I purchased Hulu's Live TV...

Re: Everyone Seems To Pay More $$$ For Cable/Streaming

Yeah there's a Disney-ESPN-Hulu bundle thingy, though IIRC you have to get the ads version of Hulu with it. Something like that. #synergy

Honestly? I think it's the opposite. The subject matter seems awful. Facebook? A legal deposition? On paper it's ridiculous, and I thought as much when I heard of it. I honestly can't think of anyone...

Same on all counts. I thought it sounded moronic, and I can't believe how good it was/is. I think I've seen it three times and it's felt fresh and entertaining every single time.
