Guess I should have drafted Greinke instead.  :kicksrock:

Maybe I could create a 'pitcher' called 'whoever is facing Trevor Story'?

New scoring seems better for hitters

Only in Gobbler

Spartans has zero points this week because he didn't enter a starting lineup.

Prescient pick considering he was out of work at the time.

1.01 - Charlie Morton, trying for best/worst pitcher on worst team.

Out for the season w/ torn hamstring.   In Gobbler terms, this is bigger than Schwarber

Good catch.  I think the scheduling quirk is due to the orphaned team that was jammed in the system.  I fixed this week's matchups but will have to manually update the rest of the season later.

Schedule has been modified manually.  The number of matchups by opponents are uneven because Fantrax, but at least everybody has the same number of games now.

It's a 25 week season - All-Star game week is a bye for everybody.

If there's interest in Gobbling again, I'll take a look into the scoring rules to see if there's a way to balance pitcher/batter scoring a bit better.

Looking for suggestions on how to balance hitter/pitcher scoring a bit better. I think more roster flexibility would be nice but I'd still like this to be a low maintenance league.

Some things never change

Every year on Jan 12th.

I think the roster rule changes last year were fine.  The scoring still favored pitchers last year although the overall increase in R/G accounted for some of that.

There sure were some terrible first round picks

Charlie Morton - 17 IP                                                                                   
Jean Segura - 867 OPS, 200+ hits                                                                                
John Danks - 22 IP                                                                              
Matt Garza - decent gobbler, 100 IP, 4.51 ERA                                                                                
Phil Hughes - only 59 terrible innings                                                                              
Rick Porcello - CY YOUNG!
Jordan Lyles - only 58 terrible innings                                                                             
Chris Tillman - 16 wins and only 6 losses                                                                        
Miguel Gonzalez - 8 losses, but a nice ERA                                                                                  
Mike Pelfrey - 119 innings of absolute awesome gobbling                                                                    
Jeremy Hellickson - 190 innings of 1.153 WHIP pitching

A league is never won in the first round.

We missed the window between New Year's and BTTF.  I'm game for another go if we can get a quorum but I want to get Serious Biz sorted first.
