    Well, with three weeks left and a 4 game deficit, it might be difficult...

    I’m just focusing on a good pick in the draft. And staying over .500. Sad.

    I was going for it; but two horrendous weeks in a row and i figured it was time to start playing for a higher draft pick. I like me keepers for next year though.

    Same. Some bad luck, some piss poor micromanaging, and John never losing, I packed it in. Wish I never traded Mize. But I’m happy with what I got from gdn. In fact he’s asked for trade-backs twice!

    I really wish we’d do away with the snake draft so the first picks actually mean something. As it is I’d prefer pick #8 or 9.

    I would love to re-do the draft to have the 1st pick, then drop 5 picks in the second round or something like that. It would definitely make it more beneficial to have a top draft pick.
    In fact, I'd sign up to be the person who loads the round by round slots.

    How else would you draft, except for a snake draft?

    commish - please consider doing away with a snake draft. In a 8 or 10 team Yahoo league, it may make sense. However, in this hyper-competitive 20-team league, it puts the teams picking early in a very bad pickle. Picking 1st and 39th? no thanks. For competitive balance, please consider round slots.

    There's a way to do it where each round you have a different pick. I don't know the formula but I was once in a league set up that way. I don't know if it's better or worse, but there is an alternate draft method.

    I imagine every team drafts in the same spot every round, or maybe we reverse draft order every two rounds? I dunno. The snake draft is disadvantageous in a sense to the team picking first, but the same order every round is terrible for a team picking last. They get 20 and 40. Not sure there's a better option but I'm open to other ideas.

    No you can’t have a team drafting first in two consecutive rounds. It’s different each round though. Like 1st, then 4th , then 10th, then 2nd. Then 6th. Etc. I’m just pulling it out of my ass just examples of how it would go.

    The way I would distribute the draft picks is as such:
    1st: how we've always done it
    2nd: random assignment (but the 1st overall can't have another 1st)
    3rd: Use the 1st round to randomize in groups of 5
    4th: reverse the 1st round
    5th: copy the 1st round
    6th: random assignment
    7th: Use the 1st round to randomize in groups of 5
    8th: reverse the 1st round
    9th - 22nd: snake

    It basically creates value for the top picks while not crushing the playoff teams.
    Then for 9 through 22 revert to a snake draft for simplicity sake.

    I'd also like to re-visit the discussion of a Flex SP/RP position.
    4 SP, 3 RP, 1 Flex

    Given the option I think we'd all prefer to have 5 healthy, non-negative scoring SP's but not the reality during many points throughout the season. At least this creates flexibility.

    MLB doesn't do snake. Why should we? With 20 teams, do what MLB does.

    Postseason Races.

    Divisions:
    Ligers and Lou's have clinched.
    Stirrups leads by 2 and are winning a tight game against the Ferrets (2 games back)
    Woodies up by 2 and are leading in their game this week.

    Record Wild Card:
    If one were to assume the Division Leaders win their divisions...

    Powerplant 12

    Jax are dominating their game.
    Plant is beating Mrs Bill by more than 30 pts.

    Re: NYYFans FB League - 2019 Week 21 - Just 3 Little Weeks Left

    I was unexpectedly unable to do the Saturday how are we doing write up yesterday morning, so we'll combine that with prediction Sunday here. (in red):


    Evil Empire (11-9) @ Michigan Wolverines (10-10)


    Apparently both of these teams want a the coveted second place finish in Joe's Division. Empire is up 196-193.5 in an oh so close get together. Wolvies do have the only PSR in Lancelot Lynn. Nick Ahmed is having an awesome week for the Emp with 42 pts. Realmuto's 41 almost matches that for the Wolvies.
    Prediction:
    Evil Empire wins this because the Twins will rock the Lynn.



    Larrupin' Lou's (13-7) @ Romanian Yankees (8-12)


    The R0Y's may not be playoff bound but they have put together 4 solid weeks in a row, including this week. They are taking it all out on the Lou's with a 75 point lead. Lou may be resting folks after last week's playoff clinch. Who knows.
    LeMachine paces the Lou's attack this week with 26.5. James McCann has a nice 34.5 spot for the RoYs.
    Prediction:
    This one's over and puts a dent in the Lou's chances for a first round bye. RoYanks win with ease.




    Miko's Marauders (9-11) @ Babe's Blasts (9-11)


    Have we heard from Miko? Is he still on vacation? Cuz his team is apparently away with him. Blast is up by 92. Marauders lead the league in fewest points scored this week. Four pitchers with negative numbers are not helping Miko's cause here. MaddyBum is the leader for the Mikobunch with 31.5. Carlos Santana is riffing with 45 huge points for Blastie.
    Prediction:
    Blast in a a runaway.




    Planet Express (11-9) @ Judgement Day (7-13)


    Planet Express is comfortably ahead by 52.5 points here. JD is clearly playing for next year. Express has a very outside chance at the division so a win is important, but there best chance is for the ptsWC and points they need to keep compiling. The Express had a terrific day yesterday in more ways than one including a 59 point spot to keep them in the playoff hunt.
    Jack Flaherty's 29.5 points lead the Express. Raffy Devers is still hitting well with 34.
    Prediction:
    Easy Prediction here. Express checks out the JDs.




    Formal Ferrets (13-7) @ Hobbled Tattered (15-5)


    In probably the most important game of the week... the Hobbled have a slight lead of 17 points. No more PSRs. This one will come down to the wire. The Ferrets need a win badly to stay in the division race and to stay in the recordWC lead. Man, so important. Really important. It must be nerve wracking. I'm nervous just writing this up. I can't begin to know how these two feel. Probably nervous. You know?
    Anyway, Justin Upton's 25.5 paces the Ferrets. Aroldis Chapman has a massive 33 points for those with a long name.
    Prediction:
    Really? You want me to predict this one? All right, just to keep things intersting... I say the Ferrets somehow win this by like 0.50 points or something.




    The Best Team (3-17) @ HobokenSquatCobblers (3-17)



    A couple of guys playing for 2020. Hoboken is heartbroken for losing this team. But they are putting on a show for the half dozen remaining fans this week. The lead is 209.5-133.
    Gio (The Sea Witch) Urshela has 27 pts for BT. Ivan Nova has a nice 37.5 for Hobo.
    Prediction:
    Hobo



    Mrs. Bill and Sluggo (12-8) @ Powerplant (12-8)


    Another game of importance. Nuke has the advantage at this time with a 23.5 pt lead and the 2-1 PSR edge. Both teams need a win here, else their playoff chances may go poof.
    Grandson of Yaz is on fire for Missus with 29.5. Bryce Harper is earning some of his billions and billions of dollars this week with 33 pts for Nuke.
    Prediction:
    Plant prevails.




    Guys with Wood (14-6) @ Buckeye Nation (8-12)


    The Guys can clinch the Div with a win or a Mrs. Loss. They seem to be in position to win the division themselves. Guys have a 55 point lead here. Buckeye is not out of it yet tho. They have 2 PSRs to none for GwW.
    Woodies getting a bunch of pts from their offence this week, paced by Jose Ramirez' 37. Kyle Seager also has 37 for Buckeye.
    Prediction:
    All Woodies here.




    The Lumberjacks (12-8) @ Carolina Force (8-12)


    Jax win. No prediction necessary. It's 300-152.5. Yikes. Blowout City.
    Gleyber (Superstar) Torres has 52 for the Jacks. Eric Hosmer added 26 for Force.
    Prediction:
    See above.




    Ligers (16-4) @ Rookie Mistakes (6-14)


    Liger is ahead in this one by a few. RM has a penalty upcoming for an SP in a RP slot. So the Ligers may pull this one out.
    Ryan McMahon leads all Ligers with 34.5. Max Muncy has his own 34 for RM.
    Prediction:
    You make the call.



    Enjoy Sunday all. It's a great weekend.

    Playoff Update:


    Division Winners:
    It sure looks like the Hobbled and Woodies have wins in the bag which would clinch their divisions for them.

    Congrats in advance.

    recordWC:
    Looks like the Ferrets will lose and the Jax and Powerplant will win, causing a 3 way tie for the lead in this playoff hope.
    Missus will lose and Express will win putting them a game back. Empire needs a few points to win their game and stay a game back as well. So this is way up in the air.

    ptsWC:

    As of just a few minutes ago the Express had a 194 point lead over the Jax and a 212 point lead over the Force. Looks like the Express is in good shape here.


    Just two weeks to go once the late games are over today.

    4 in
    7 with a chance at the last two spots.

    Also, with the Ligers win and by virtue of their win against the Woodies in week 13, the Ligers have clinched at least the second seed.
