Why did you draft Ogando? Does your league have a Holds category?

I guess there's a chance he could be a starter in a couple months if Feliz falters. But for now he's just a middle reliever.

Crap I thought he was starting. See I don't know what I'm doing!

dropped him and picked up Volquez, like him in PETCO.

How many teams in that league?? Seems like you raped pretty well.

MIF could use a little help and you'll find someone for the OF, but overall it's looking really good, especially 12-team.

That's what I was thinking, my 2B situation kind of sucks, and I'm not worried about my OF with waivers. I really like the pitching though.

The dumpster draft sucks so much for me haha.

LOL What time will that be for you? Sadly, autopick would be outright suicide!

We're doing both leagues? I thought we were just doing the H2H one.

I made both, but it's up to you what you participate in. I'm trying to fill both. It's sad -- you have the masses not give a flying fuck about fantasy baseball, but the few who do are super excited.

Starts at 5:00 am (just like my draft yesterday...before a final!).

If there aren't more people in the league I'm going to have to skip it...

I don't see us having many more. I've tapped out my heads. :(

I could post it up on the Yahoo! forums... what do you think?

Alright even though we only have 5 teams in the Dumpster Diamond since Alex dropped, I think I'm gonna keep it just because it's points so 5 won't matter and it's non-traditional so it'll be fun. It just means our teams will have even more suck!! And I think this post only matters to fellside, unless RZ decides to drop by the forum.

Yeah it looks like 9thwonder joined up, I think. It's pretty simple -- I kept tweaking with the points system to reward sucking and punishing awesome until the player list looked pretty good.

Yeah, I originally didn't know if I wanted to do this kind of league. I am staying inside for the rest of the night so why not? I'm not sure what strategy to implement. Is it better to draft a guy who hits .220 across 250 at-bats or a guy who hits .260 over 500 at-bats? Basically, how much does volume suckage come into play?
