  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: The -$1 thread

    The first player signed to a multi-year deal was waived. Andy Pettitte (2 yrs/$13 per) by Kings of Arbitration. Therefore K of A will have only $259 instead of $260 in next year's auction. This will be adjusted by adding $1 to the price of one of his keepers when the keepers are loaded, and then the $1 will be subtracted once the auction is completed. (Edit: I am checking all the rosters now to see if I missed any...this caught my eye because he was picked up on waivers, in which...

  2. Auction Strategy

    OK, by the results of our poll, it looks like our auction will be taking place on Monday, March 7th, as it is the only day that we will have the requisite number of people to fill the league. I encourage everyone to purchase AT LEAST one magazine, as well as use other sources like the net, and RESEARCH, RESEARCH, RESEARCH. It is very difficult to just show up to an auction cold and be successful, so the more you look into projected dollar values for guys and couple that with who YOU think...

  4. Auction League Dates

    The Auction is the most intense and important part of this league. It is what you do a ton of research for before the season. Yes you want Jeter, but how much are you willing to pay for him? $26? What if you're at $25 and someone raises you to $26, do you go past your limit and bid $27? The Auction is going to be a great and fun time, but it is crucial that everyone is there; its not like a draft league where if you don't show up your team gets drafted a default roster. If you don't show up...

    I was going to go with "Deadbeat Nixon" in honor of everyone's favorite deadbeat dad, but I didn't want to look at a Sox player's name all summer. So I'm going with - Bitches Brew

  10. Alternative to sportsline.com?

    I was looking through a fantasy baseball magazine today and there was an ad for rotowire.com Their 2005 FBL League: http://www.rotowire.com/mlbcommish05/ (you might have to go in through the main http://www.rotowire.com/ page) has a new feature: New for this season: Live auction room for online drafting with dollar bidding. Any questions? Email us at support@rotowire.com or call us at 310-883-3183 (We're in during West Coast business hours - and you may want to try at other times...

  11. Poll: Fantasy Auctioneer

    Fantasy Auctioneer seems like a very good option for us, seeing as we are trying to have our auction move swiftly. It would allow everyone to participate and lessen the level confusion and disorder that we would invariably experience in our chatroom. I wil pay for the site if everyone can go to it and run their diagnostic test (We need to know if everyone can support it). Please go to the site (link below), run the test, and then vote in the above poll when you pass. If you fail the...

  12. The Auction is upon us, gentlemen!

    Tomorrow night we will be having our auction at Fantasy Auctioneer! Please make sure you arrive promptly so we can get this done as quickly and efficiently as possible. If this means not taking up extra time by bidding against me for players that I throw out, then so be it. It will be for the best of the league. ;) :D Also, please look at the magazines that you are using for values and make sure that the prices they are listing are MIXED LEAGUE prices, not AL ONLY or NL ONLY. Most...

  13. Still feeling burned...

    ...on that $20 Mota deal. It was no different than Evil Empire "mistakenly" pushing the +1 button. I had an amount sitting up there from the previous player up for bid - Miguel Cabrera I believe, who's price exceeded $20 so quickly, I never submitted it. We then verified that it was possible for this to happen. Seems like a $47 bid on Vlad to me was more getting caught up in the heat of bidding, especially at the beginning of a draft. Upping a bid by $12 for a marginal player seems...

  14. Thanks Snatch!

    Man I had a great time last night getting hammered and drafting. First time in an auction I think I'm pretty happy with how I did. Thank you Snatch, and thanks to the rest of you for making it fun! I'd like to apologize to you all for the mess-up early on, I hope you can understand that my bid of 45$ for Beltran was a mistake. I was typing in the chat and when I hit enter it went +1 instead. Thanks Snatch for fixing it.

  16. Team Roto Values

    OK...I was bored on the train. So I took my printout of the draft results and plugged in the roto values for each player. For this I used Sportsline's values, and where there was no value, gave the player a value of $1. In a couple of cases I consulted Rotowire, because Sportsline did not rank players who qualified only as a DH. The list only takes into account team value. It doesn't matter if you spent the full $260, or only $232, since (1) We don't get scored on how much value you got for...

  17. Clarifying the Kevins

    Okay, Kevin (Soriambi) is a long time member of this board and he's always been Kevin. Kevin (Snatch) on the other hand, is the commish of this league and deserves to keep his name as well. How do we clarify these two guys? We need something because I'm so used to doing the first name thing I don't want to unpersonalize my posts with user names..... Do one of you go by Kev at all?

  18. Ghr 714

    Please see this thread regarding adding and dropping players. As per the constitution...adding and dropping players is not allowed prior to opening day (April 3, 2005). Please drop Gil Meche and re-sign Juan Rincon. (Those other transactions you see either corrected roster omissions, or reversed transactions that were not allowed prior to April 3, 2005).

  19. Adding/Dropping Players

    Could we all refrain from adding and dropping players until after Kev has updated the dollar values in our rosters? I think it would help him, since he has to lookup the values of everyone and manually add them, and if the rosters are not the same it could cause some confusion. Also, it appears some players that should have been on people's rosters have been missed. Hopefully when he adds the dollar values, he'll catch all his misses.
