Apparently I drafted some cat named "Ty Wiggington." I shall call him..."Wiggles." :D



Somehow you drafted nine SPs and I drafted four. WTF?! :o

You need to give me the Big Unit. I'll collect all of the Giants' starters one-by-one. :dance:

I may consider sending you sexy Randy in exchange for one of your Canadians. :D

There's no point in posting in the other thread when we have this one. :p

we already got one dude bitching about the level of competition :rolleyes: and it hasn't even started... this is already not fun.

JayJay wasn't bitching. Relax! It's not supposed to be fun now. Wait until the first couple of weeks. :D

EDIT: As much as like Randy Johnson--NorCal born and raised--I couldn't possibly have three Giants SPs. We have terrible run support and our relief pitching ain't anything to write home about.

I didn't throw it away, I was helping someone out.

I don't see the point of aiming for 5M and 10M and all that, I have more than everyone except you and BG and I'll never catch him and I don't care about catching you.

Just because I'm a nice fellow. :angel: :p

I'll be a vmillionaire again in no time... but it's no fun just holding onto bcash when someone else could use it for a project.

Ok, fair enough. But it was you who told me to start vbetting again after I got to 1M. I said something like "I'm not as greedy as Snoo" and then you corrected me with the word "ambitious". Seems like you have lost that ambition then. ;)

He never told me why. He must not like me anymore.

LinkMage
03-31-2009, 04:24 AM
I thought that was because you thought I was giving out 200k. But I'm only giving out 100k. Genci is giving 20k and Pablo 10k. Claudio promised to give the remaining 70k only if Gonzo won, but he lost. So I guess Nathii will have to look for someone else. Jonathan could do it, he won some nice cash working for me. :D :p

Snoo Foo
03-31-2009, 04:27 AM
why don't you give 200k? what difference does 100k or 200k make to you?

The baseball season is longer, but I think fantasy football is more difficult to play "correctly." You don't need to worry about weather, venues, and matchups quite as much with baseball. Of course, I don't know baseball as well as football, so this actually will be more difficult for me....:o

Detroit baseball field to be named after Kid Rock

Kid Rock (http://www.nme.com/artists/kid-rock) has announced that he has acquired the naming rights to the home field of American League baseball team the Detroit Tigers.

The Michigan native purchased the naming rights for an undisclosed sum, which will change the name from Comerica Park to Kid Rock Field.

He has also announced that he has teamed up with the Michigan Brewing Company to create a new line of beer, which will be the official beer of the Detroit Tigers.

"This has been a dream of mine for a long time, and with the banks in trouble it seemed like the right time for me to reach out to the fine people at Comerica Bank," Kid Rock (http://www.nme.com/artists/kid-rock) said in a statement. "I've never been more excited for opening day, and I'm proud to be able to add my name to the legacy of my favorite baseball team."

Meanwhile, Kid Rock (http://www.nme.com/artists/kid-rock), whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, is set to perform at Arizona's Temple Music Festival and California's Stagecoach Festival later this month.

It takes 4 days, you can change before the beginning of each round I believe.

Scoring. The Promotion uses a best ball scoring format. During the tournament, the hole-by-hole score for each of the golfers on your foursome will be compared for each hole of the tournament. The lowest number of strokes credited to a golfer on your foursome will be your score for each hole (Example: If three golfers finish a hole with four strokes and one finishes with three, you will receive a score of three). The scores for each regulation hole (playoffs not included) will be aggregated and will represent your final score for the tournament.

Did that make any sense to you? :D
I know of a lot of them, they are just all the expensive ones :rolls: and I had to have Tiger so there were not very many other combination possible. :sad:
Tiger :hearts:

You probably could've guessed he's in my team as well ;)

Fantasy tennis court to be named after Snoo Foo

Snoo Foo has announced that she has acquired the naming rights to the main court of Tennis Tipping Roland Garros.

The Ohio native purchased the naming rights for v700,000, which will change the name from some famous TT champion to Court Snoo Foo.

"This has been a dream of mine for a long time, and with no fathomable use for vcash, it seemed the right time for me to reach out to the fine people at Tennis Tipping," Snoo Foo said in a statement. "I've never been more excited for a TT tournament, and I'm proud to be able to add my name to the legacy of my favorite imaginary Grand Slam."

what the fuck, how does somebody look "slightly short" in a picture? on MTF? I don't even know what slightly short means. 5'9"? 5'3"?

besides the kid you're thinking of can't be the same kid cuz if it was you'd have only needed to mention one thing, his fucking hair, which you would not have described as "long," unless you are... less bright than I thought.

Damn, boatch, calm the hell down! I'm not moving in on your man or anything; I'm just trying to figure out who your man is! Slightly short would be around 5'7'' or so, I guess. 5'3'' is more than slightly short. I'm not trying to make a big deal out of his height. I'm trying to see if he's the kid I saw in some half-forgotten picture like two years ago.

EDIT: If it's like an afro I have no idea who this cat is, which is fine. I don't need to like hunt him down or anything. I just wanted to see if it was someone I already knew.

oy bibberz it's just... "slightly short" sounds funny. Like, in the picture you saw, was he trying to get something off a high shelf and couldn't reach? Or sitting in a chair and his feet didn't quite reach the ground? Like of all the things to notice in a grainyass internets photo, "slightly short." Like... "oh you mean the gye with the attached earlobes?"

but like I said, if you saw the same gye, you wouldn't be wasting time figuring out whether he's 5'7".

dude I never notice anybody's height, everyone's either shorter than me or taller or more or less the same. Or ginormous. Or peewee. But those extremes are rare. Mostly it's just taller-than-me or shorter-than-me. And since I can't judge that from pictures if I'm not in the picture, I have no idea how tall anyone is from a picture. Unless they're like, standing next to Shaq and they're taller than Shaq.

fuck dude, I'm torn between giving up vbetting altogether or like, putting everything on Roger (or nole?) for tomorrow. goddammit. If roger loses again tomorrow he's just beyond pathetic but he is actually beyond pathetic so there's no if about it.

That could be it. Some movies seem exclusively NYC--Wall Street, Annie Hall...The Basketball Diaries...New Jack City...um, well, you know...Those movies. Any movie that takes place in a massive grid or where there's subway or a borough is...New York and only New York.

Movies that have valleys, sunny beaches, and, yeah, driving just seem like...movies.

I still haven't quite cottoned on to the rules here :lol::unsure:

Do you need help with the rules of baseball or our fantasy baseball league's settings? :unsure:

For the moment you just need to figure out which fantasy players are efficient. You have plenty of time to do this. ESPN is great about providing stats.

If you go to your roster you'll see that your players don't really have their stats displayed because the 2009 season just started. You can click on 2008 to see their stats from last year.

For Batters:

H/AB - # Hits/# Plate Appearances
R - # Runs on the year (1 point per run)
TB - Total bases (e.g. a single/BB is worth one point, a double is worth two points, and a triple is worth three points, etc.)
RBI - Amount of runs batted in by that player (1 point per run)
BB - Walks (1 point)
K - Strikeouts (-1 point)
Sac - This is when a batter bats in a run despite creating an out.
SB - Stolen bases (+1 point)
Errors - Fielding errors (-1 point)
Tot - Total points accrued by that player
Average - Average points scored by that player per game.
% Owned - The % of ESPN leagues where that particular player is owned by one of the teams.

Make sure your batters are getting a lot of ABs. ESPN is usually pretty good about telling you whether a player is receiving a lot of playing time. You can also check the "depth chart" of his team to see how his team prioritizes him:

http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/teams

Make sure you don’t have like 8 Second Basemen (2Bs) and 1 3B. This is all pretty standard stuff, though. You know this from other fantasy sports. :p

For Pitchers:

I'm feeling really lazy and I won't describe how the scores are calculated for pitchers. Just go to League Settings.

IP – Innings Pitched
H – Hits
ER – Earned runs (i.e. runs attributable to the pitcher).
BB – Walks allowed
K – Strikes.
SO – Shutouts (i.e. when the pitcher holds the opposing team to 0 runs)
PG – Perfect Games (i.e. when the pitcher doesn’t allow a single baserunner)
W – Wins
L – Losses
SV – Saves (i.e. when a relief pitcher preserves a lead and closes out a game for his team)
TOT – Total points earned by a pitcher for a given year.
AVG – Average points earned per outing. Starting Pitchers (SPs) earn more points per outing, but they make fewer outings than Relief Pitchers (RPs).

Watch out for SPs who are objectively good (i.e. allow few ERs) but play for shitty teams. Actually, the same goes for RPs. These pitchers don't get a lot of wins and saves because their batters don't score enough for them to win.

I don't think anyone is dire straits or anything. I've made a ton of moves because I somehow drafted one 2B, one healthy 3B, and four SPs.

BD, how much would you charge for one of your worldwide famooooos tutorials? :D
Like you have enough vcash. :lol:

Did you get that email I sent over a week ago?

If you have any specific questions, post them here and someone will help you. I still don't know what you don't know yet....Again, just check out the League Settings, and make sure you have a firm grasp of how points are calculated.

We’re playing in a relatively deep league. All the really good players were drafted. At this point it’s about monitoring your players, starting the most productive ones, and adding/dropping.

Um, no. I'm sure there are lots of talented baseball players who have not yet been drafted. We'll start to notice them once the season unfolds. Our teams can and will change. :p

But, yes, definitely try to enjoy it. I'm enjoying having four Giants (one of whom is a "Pablin"), Edwin Encarnacion (you still need to see Nacho Libre :mad:), and the oldest active player in the big leagues (Jamie Moyer--46 yo :D).

I'm most certainly not enjoying that ESPN has failed to recognize Pablin's dual eligibility (1B and C). Meanwhile, effing Yahoo recognizes him as a 1B, 3B, and C. I don't have him in that league, though. :rolleyes:

I totally do not understand this format....I thought I had Derek Lowe and could not work with that lock and move function and he was not listed on my bench but what I thought was an active roster. He had a shut out and I have zero points- so I guess that if it says move- that means that you can't use them?. I am afraid I may be too stupid for fantasy baseball.

:lol: Don't worry. You have the points. You can't see the points at the moment because he earned those points yesterday and you're only looking at scores from today. If you were to click on Apr 5, as I just did, you'd see that he earned you 36 points--which is a rigoddamndiculous total. :worship:

:unsure: he's on your bench now... I don't know what to tell you. Move is what you press if you want to move him, it means he's eligible to be moved. I moved some gyes. If it says "locked" you can't move him cuz his game already started, but if it says "move" you have to press move and then I think all the available places to move him light up and say "move here" or something fairly understandable, the tricky part for me is that after you move him you have to press submit to save the move, cuz like, my instinct is that after I've "moved" him I'm done....

but yeah I don't know, for some reason this is like 50x harder than ff, maybe cuz there's so many fucking dudes...

Thanks bro :worship: that was very helpful :hatoff:

Just a few more questions if you don't mind:

1) I realise we're doing head-to-head, and it's done on a weekly basis.....won't some teams play more times in the week than other, so say your players could've played in like 70 games and mine only 50?

2) I keep getting told "You currently have at least one player who is DL-eligible. Use the "Manage DL" link in the navigation above to move players in and out of DL slots." ---> I've benched my guys that are injured, apparently one of my pitchers is out but we don't have any replacements, so what can I do? :shrug:

3) Pitchers are where the big points are, right?

4) Say my whole squad is fit (they aren't at the moment)....is it beneficial to make sure all the guys who are playing on a particular day aren't benched, even if they're not my strongest players? I dunno if that made sense :lol:

1) I realise we're doing head-to-head, and it's done on a weekly basis.....won't some teams play more times in the week than other, so say your players could've played in like 70 games and mine only 50?

That's certainly possible, although a difference of twenty games would be fairly unlikely. And sometimes your best pitcher (Carlos Zambrano, in your case :p) will only pitch once during a week, and occasionally he'll pitch twice.

It all evens out in the end. All of our baseball players' teams play the same number of games (162) during the season.

2) I keep getting told "You currently have at least one player who is DL-eligible. Use the "Manage DL" link in the navigation above to move players in and out of DL slots." ---> I've benched my guys that are injured, apparently one of my pitchers is out but we don't have any replacements, so what can I do? :shrug:Yeah, it's kind of lame that we still keep getting those messages because our particular league does not have a DL spot. I'll be keeping Alex Rodriguez (injured) on my bench for at least a couple more weeks. Is it productive in the short term? Obviously not. However, given his talent it's still worth it in the long term.

I just looked at your team. Troy Glaus won't be back any earlier than the All-Star break, which, just so you know, is in early July. You're better of ditching him and picking up an inferior player who will play more games and who plays a fielding position that would be more useful to you. He's also owned in only 28% of leagues, so you can tell that most people don't think he's worth keeping on their roster.

Your catcher's situation is different. He'll only be out a month. He's still owned in every league because he's pretty good--especially for a catcher. :D He's owned in every league. OWNED! :lol:

3) Pitchers are where the big points are, right?
Not necessarily. Sometimes a pitcher will have a :worship: game (e.g. Derek Lowe got Carrie 37 points), and sometimes they'll have a :retard: game (e.g. Cliff Lee got JayJay -10 points).

Look at it this way. A SP will generally pitch only once per week. A decent to good SP gets around 11-14 points per outing. A decent to good batter will get anywhere from 2.2-3 points per outing. Batters play anywhere from five to six times a week. That's fairly even. :p

4) Say my whole squad is fit (they aren't at the moment)....is it beneficial to make sure all the guys who are playing on a particular day aren't benched, even if they're not my strongest players? I dunno if that made sense :lol:It's always best to shart a shitty player instead of starting no one at all. It's always best to start a player who might return from injury on a given day instead of starting no one at all. There are no "maximum games" for a position or team during a given week.

They're not all "playing at once." Their teams are playing at once. It's not like the same SP will be playing every single game! Keep your RPs in every single day, but, if you need to sub out any pitcher at all, take out the SPs who don't start that day.

"Trade every day"? WTF?! You can set your rosters days in advance. It's dead easy. ESPN even tells you when a SP is likely to start. It couldn't be easier. You have nine pitchers for nine spots, so you actually don't even need to fiddle with them. You just need to start as many batters as possible.

I just looked at your team for the first time. Your starting pitching is scary as hell. :scared:

There is no limit. You can have all SPs or all RPs. I don't recommend putting all your eggs in one basket, though. RPs are useful because they can earn you points several days during in a week. A really good closer (a type of RP) is somewhat hard to find, but RPs who aren't typically closers (i.e. "set-up men") have a lot of value because they can still get Wins, strikeouts, etc.

I myself ditched most of my RPs to get SPs because I did not draft very good SPs in the first place, and I got the impression that it'll be harder to find quality SPs. That's just my impression.

Honestly, though, once the season really opens up we'll get a better idea of which Ps are receiving playing time. There are plenty of Ps in this league. For example, there are five SPs per baseball team and there are thirty baseball teams. That makes for 150 SPs. We have options.

Yeah, I'll really regret watching Randy Johnson put up Cy Young numbers for my favorite team. :D

This is gonna be a loooong season :lol:

:yeah: :lol:

I see this thread and all I can think of is :bibcry:'s PM to me. :sad:

I don't think that's what you meant though.

"Gam" = To make sexy time with.
"Get gammed by" = To lose very badly to another.

Snoo Snoo (and everyone else), I just noticed that the maximum number of games you can have a SP start during a week is 14. ESPN keeps track of this for you. :p 14 is very high.

I don't understand, how are we not supposed to start them when there isn't enough room on my bench to bench all the ones who aren't starting? Or does it only count as a start if they actually start in real life?

* - If a team exceeds a games played limit during the middle of a gameday, that team will continue to accumulate stats until the end of the day. Stats will not count for any position which the games played max has been exceeded before the gameday begins. I saw this on the site. So I guess we can just leave them there and their points just won't count?

so even if our dude doesn't actually play, if he's on our starting lineup and his team plays, does that count as one of his 14 starts? Cuz all my pitchers are gonna be used up in a few weeks cuz I cannot be assed to circulate them on and off the bench every fucking day in some kind of strategic fashion.

No, I don't think so. I think it only counts if they actually play. I remember seeing something about Adam's team having 2/14 and mine having 1/14 and I didn't make any changes. I don't remember where I saw that, though. :scratch:

It's only a start if that pitcher starts in real life. :p

I PMed TrueBlueFan about closing this thread (which was inevitable) and starting a new one in the NT Chat Thread section. If you see that this thread is closed/locked and you want to post, just go there. :p

Btw a word of note for everyone ---> you can change your line up before each round, I only just noticed. It's not so necessary to change it after Thursday's play, but you should definitely check after Friday because if anyone has missed the cut you'd want to take them out (am I sounding like BD? :D )
