I don't understand. We have played with the same rules and database for years.

As far as I know there haven't been any changes.

We're not playing for money.

That's why I didn't want to play in the league, there is an unreliable administrator, imo. Same for the simming. How do we know that you are not simming the league 100x and just posting the results that best suit you?

Also, the drafting. This is second time I have participated in these leagues and wound up drafting second to last in the order. Each time you say that you have your wife picking cards out of a hat or whatever. But it is strange.


Sorry to lose you Jamie. Played the last two years on FC, and it's a good time. It is only for bragging rights... we're not racing for pink slips. To sabotage a free league without financial loss/gain seems far-fetched, but I know people who can smell "conspiracy" at a child's lemonade stand. It's for fun

Alright, I'll stick around for now at least, not sure how much time I have anyways, but I will do the best I can on the draft.

Hey Quan, I had to take Mays and Gehrig there. I agree the best players are flying off the board! Many of the best leadoff guys are off the board, so I grabbed Rickey.

Same. He was #2 on my list in the third round behind Pedro. Seemed like the top SP's were going fast though. In reality, I think Henderson is probably first round worthy in fantasy and reality. Not many players could impact the game in the ways he could. Truly an incredible athlete.

Surprised Charleston lasted as long as he did. I was really torn between him and Griffey Jr. at CF. Oscar was real solid for me last year, great pick up.

I wish this league had interviews just to hear Rickey's take on the games, in the 3rd person of course. "Noone can Rickey better than Rickey." If it was up to him, a stolen base would be known as a "Rickey". Agreed, a truly great ballplayer.

Was hoping Charleston would make it back to me. Oh well, have to find another player.

For the 2011 game I created a 'draft board' that is thankfully still relevant.

Everytime one of you makes a pick, they go 'red' in my spreadsheet.

I have a target for each round and each time they go 'red' I cry silently inside.

Well I've got Barry Bonds, Joe Morgan, and Bob Gibson.

We should have some crazy post game press conferences.

I formally accuse Ben of flying to Jacksonville, going to the top of the high rise adjacent to mine, and using a telescopic lens to view my draft board.

chris--if you'd only put this much energy into figuring out how the chinese place got your credit card code...

Well George Brett, Chipper Jones, and Wage Boggs all off the board in sequence.

At this rate, the only option I'll have at Third Base is Prime Minister Pete Nice!

Anything like the sim ending before the present day, or other quirks like that, it would be great if it was disclosed beforehand, so that everyone knows, I just drafted a guy who had three of his best years from 2006-2008... I understand it is a computer game and not perfect... just that everyone should know so that they can draft accordingly... thanks.

It was disclosed that a player had to start his career by 1996. I guess it wasn't made clear that the stats only run through 2006.

How about East Coast v. West Coast. I think we've got Quan, Andrew, and myself on the west coast. Jamie & Chris on the east coast. Not sure about the others. May come down to who is furthest west of Champlin.

Any divisions would be better than MLB's version. I mean, Houston in AL West.

Sounds like a good idea. Lee is further west than I am. I know Ben is East of me. NOt sure where others are located.
