My suggestion for next season.

Rosters are entirely too massive for no reason for a weekly h2h setup. If we did a daily roster move format it would make more sense to have immense benches. With weekly, our benches are basically just developmental guys and excess hurt guys.

Current Setup:
C 1B 2B SS 3B OF OF OF UTL UTL SP SP RP RP P P P P BN BN BN BN BN BN DL DL

Proposed Setup:
C 1B 2B SS 3B OF OF OF UTL SP SP SP RP RP P P BN BN BN BN DL DL NA NA

NA is the prospect away from the big league team slot {not suspended guys}

Bump Innings Requirements up to 20 or 22. There's no reason with 3 designated SP positions you shouldn't get 5 IP a piece from them, leaving 5 IP for the 2 RP and 2 P spots.

4 Roster spots have been eliminated. That's going to add 48 people to the waiver wire. It was hell on earth last year finding anything useful off the waiver wire. I'm sure it'll be the same again this year.

15 seconds for draft time limits is bad. You might as well just make the draft autodraft at that point. 45 seconds is the absolute minimum. If your goal is to get the draft done as fast as humanly possible than just don't do a live draft at all and make it auto pick. Drafts always take like 2 hours. Another solution to hasten the draft would be set the roster size to 16, have no bench. Then once the draft is over, readd the bench spots and let teams add free agents or use waiver claims.

That's my suggestion for a format change.

Also, if my team somehow makes the playoffs and even wins a playoff matchup than good god that proves how flawed this format is. I have a second tier SP2 as my ace, 96 closers and 75% of my batters will be dumpster dive free agents.

People can give opinions on all of this or offer suggestions. If you're HQ please keep it under 10 paragraphs.

I'm back in

Quick Thoughts
1: Favor Daily Lineups
2: I'd be fine with a 30-40 Second clock. Enough to search but fast enough to move along a bit.
3: In favor of the NA Spots especially for prospects who may be 'ready' but won't get called up until late May or early June

45 seconds.

15 was retarded last year, so 30 would only be half as retarded. Let's not be retarded.

Re: The RealTSM Chat MLB Fantasy League - DRAFT MARCH 14th

as an actual retarded person, I don't want to be retarded, so I agree let's not be retarded. I already set the time to 60 seconds so if we want 45 we can do that. Retarded.

Any other changes people need to break down in the simplest possible ways because beyond raising the innings pitched and some sort of roster changes it's all gibberish to me.

Re: The RealTSM Chat MLB Fantasy League - DRAFT MARCH 14th

Just need to hear from BZ, Flik, Hawk and MFer.

I'm in favour of increasing the Innings pitch to at least 20 if we're keeping the pitchers at the same number if we're decreasing the pitchers leave it as it is.

Current Setup:
C 1B 2B SS 3B OF OF OF UTL UTL SP SP RP RP P P P P BN BN BN BN BN BN DL DL

Proposed Setup:
C 1B 2B SS 3B OF OF OF UTL SP SP SP RP RP P P BN BN BN BN DL DL NA NA

This doesn't look bad to me neither does the option of keeping the current one and doing daily lineups but I know some people don't want to do that. Daily lineups are much easier this year going by nba league so I think it would be less of an issue.

I'm fine with the latter. I know MLB would probably benefit more from Daily if managers wanted to weigh splits heavier (e.g. playing a Home guy over a Road guy, etc.) and personally, I've used the 'Set Lineup for the Week' option in the NBA Keeper league myself with the benefit that you can do it at any point in the week so if you forget Monday, you can still set the rest of the week for Tuesday or Wednesday.

BZ is out. I've Sort of heard from MFer so I'm assuming he is in. Hawk is in. I have still not heard from Flik.

just needed to know that you were back in for sure, i was pretty sure you were.

also if you had an opinion on any of the proposed changes being talked about in the above posts

Ok so we need one more person based on the assumption that MFer is indeed in. If you're interested please say so here or PM me.

I'm going to ask people during the ppv tomorrow or Monday about what changes they want to the league because there should be at least half the league there hopefully. You can also voice your opinion.

Proposal 1 is as I understand it:

Change it from:
Current Setup:
C 1B 2B SS 3B OF OF OF UTL UTL SP SP RP RP P P P P BN BN BN BN BN BN DL DL

Proposed Setup:
C 1B 2B SS 3B OF OF OF UTL SP SP SP RP RP P P BN BN BN BN DL DL NA NA
Both are weekly lineups and I assume we keep it at 18 innings pitched since there'd be less pitchers.

Proposal 2 would be
C 1B 2B SS 3B OF OF OF UTL UTL SP SP RP RP P P P P BN BN BN BN BN BN DL DL
Keep the current line but with Daily Lineups and an increase to between 20-25 innings pitched.

Re: The Chat MLB League - DRAFT MARCH 14th- ONE NEEDED

Voting for Krankor's set up (24 Players Total, NA Spots)

Proposal 2 would be
C 1B 2B SS 3B OF OF OF UTL SP SP SP RP RP P P BN BN BN BN DL DL NA NA
Keep the current line but with Daily Lineups and an increase to between 20-25 innings pitched.

The 2 NA Spots because a lot of talent can be shuttled down to AAA level before getting called up in May or June. It'd allow teams to get legitimate talent who will play this year without having to scour the waiver wire/free agent list daily to get the jump.

I'm more focused on the Daily Lineup aspect so I'm not hardcore married to any roster construction setup but Krankor's would be pretty ideal.

I changed it to Daily lineups and raised it to 20 innings pitched but didn't change anything else based on all the various conversations I had.

With daily lineups will we have weekly roster max moves or unlimited?

Re: The Chat MLB League - DRAFT MARCH 14th-

It should be set to no maximum/unlimited based on the settings I'm seeing. HQ has co-commissioner status so he can double-check to see if I'm missing anything.

So basically the free agent list will be even worse than last year. Great.

Re: The Chat MLB League - DRAFT MARCH 14th-

Thinking of maybe a cap of 4 moves per week considering it's a Daily league? This way we'd avoid people literally grabbing/dumping a scarce position e.g. SS or 3B like 6 days in a row and skewing the system.

You'd still be able to 'stream' but where would be more important and most teams should have enough studs/bench to rotate within their own squads.

EDIT: Krankor's other league has 6 as the max per week so I think anywhere from 4-6 would work since we're looking at just 10 teams.

Re: The Chat MLB League - DRAFT MARCH 14th-

I split the difference and made it a maximum of 5 acquisitions per week. That way, a team can replace an injured player and stream a couple positions if they desire.

Re: The Chat MLB League - DRAFT MARCH 14th-

Its actually 3 in the other league. Just 6 for the 2 week first week.
