From the week one round up: "No Dynasty for Old Men were saving like they grew up in the depression, notching ten overall." 

Hey all, I'm Jake. I'm taking over the Arsenal franchise. With any luck, I'll have this ship turned around within ten short years. Anyone who is in the market for a decent starter (Ryu, Morton, Gausma

We actually both wanted to go a different route. But no ####### way we could pass up the shtick of both top picks being yours

I could use a 1B if anyone has a surplus. Preferably on the younger side considering the demographic of my team. I have a plethora of MI if anyone has a need there. 

Will also listen on Rendon at some point, assuming it all goes sideways as expected :coffee:

Still looking to acquire a stud old man rental for a kid.  Here is your chance to get a top 50 prospect for a guy who will be out of baseball by the time anyone can actually beat Dr. D's team.

I said in year one that I was on the five year plan and this is year five. Even though I was in third most of the second half last year (down to the final day in fact), I was never really a serious contender.  In part it was due to me just bombing my lineup with streaming starters trying to get enough innings, and that led to some tragic results. 

I’ve mostly made careful trades and acquisitions trying to field a team that has active starting players, but also has a young core with upside. Obviously holding Mondesi since the original draft and picking up Soto and Acuna when they were 1% owned helped.  I still have only a handful of guys north of 30 not counting relievers. 

I thought my pitching would be good enough this year but losing McCullers was a setback and I’m probably at best middle of the pack in pitching. So we’ll see, I think Shady has the best team going into the season.

I think it will be pretty competitive. Shady’s probably the most well-rounded, you’ve got the best offense, HT has the best pitching and Cheese has the best high-end talent.

I had my team in that group too until the injuries hit. I could’ve dealt prospects to shore up some spots but I’ve been doing that forever and wanted a new approach.

Love the way you built your team, kind of the blueprint I want to follow. We’ll call this year one of a 4-year plan, I think I’ve got most of the pieces in place and now I just have to be more patient than I was in the past.

13 minor leaguers which puts you in a 2nd place tie with Kraft.  Jake leads the league with 52.

My franchise will recognize all first place performances so, assuming I can hold on to the lead, expect a banner next season celebrating having the most prospects. 🏆🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿  

This is not a yahoo league, guy. No participation ribbons.

This was my original dispersal draft team.  

Traded Frazier, Cain, Allen, McCutchen, Frazier, Belt, Gordon and Perez for Betts, Baez, Gary Sanchez, Taillon, Hosmer, and maybe Cespedes.

Anderson got stolen in last years competitive draft, Ventura died, chris Cobb was my 4th pick, and Ive drafted then traded Miller, drafted him again, released him, and picked him back up.

Buxton was my franchise centerpiece, I still have hope he can be a top 100 player.

Seems like a long time ago that I traded an advanced A Buxton for Miggy

Pik swoops in on Taylor Rogers before the handshake line

I just happened to turn it on and saw him standing there with one out.  Pushed wife out of the way like Costanza running from a fire and had him by out two.  I knew you were lurking.

Was anyone besides me actually watching the Twins game?

Watching Royals/White Sox now

The Royals have an 11 Sunday game for $99. The grandstand in Fenway is $68 and box seats are north of $100

I'm invested in Blake Parker this year so I checked in on my phone to see if he was coming in to open the 9th.  I was watching the Giants get shutout.

To get a standing room only ticket to Reds opening day yesterday (like most years) was  about $170 yesterday.  To get a pass that gets you a ticket to every Reds home game from game 2 until the end of April costs $70.

I never understood why teams didn't do opening day doubleheaders.  Could get two sell outs, and drinkers can go nuts. Plus if you have a trash game like the Sox or Ray's, you could get a chance to please the fans immediately.  No brainer imo.  

And for a team hanging a banner, they could walk it around the park and all that during game one and then raise it before game two.

Weekday night games before the kids get out of school are always cheap on StubHub, especially now that the Giants aren't such a hot ticket.

Holy Crap! My team made the CBS Around the League update for something positive! I might have to print out the page and have it framed. :excited:  

Seems like five years is enough time to get in the around the league update. :confetti:

We still haven't, but at least we were up to 4th in live scoring tonight.  Gotta be the highest we have been since before the W.A.R.

Up to 3rd at 78!

With Upton gone, Kershaw is my last original year 3 dispersal draft player left.

And then there were zero. Kershaw was the key to a lot of high finishes but never brought me a title (just like with the Dodgers). He’ll always be one of my favorite players though because of this league.

My longest tenured player is now Didi Gregorius, who I added in July 2016. I thought it was going to be Rhys Hoskins but he came on board in August. I’m planning on a lot less roster turnover in the next few years.

I hope I get 500 innings out of Kershaw the next three years. Doubt it, but I can dream. 

Hope Buxton ends up being a top 50 guy, I think it happens. Hard to part with him.  Technically my longest tenured player.

Never thought you would trade Buxton, thought you were ride or die with him.
