  1. Lions Forum Fantasy Baseball Discussion Thread #31

    I’m dealing one guy early I guess. Lions017 Sends: Wil Myers 18th 17th TimeForChange Sends: PTBNL 2nd 8th
  2. Lions Forum Fantasy Baseball Discussion Thread #31

    Ugh. My team is in the upper-half of the league in pretty much every category but I'm 4-6-1. I'm going to keep trying to compete for a while, but if I lose a couple more weeks, feel free to start making offers. I have a lot of players that should be useful - the only guys I absolutely don't want to trade are Albies and Nola.
  3. Offseason trades and signings

    This seems the most likely scenario. Wilson gets most of the playing time, Roberts gets some work in the red zone and in two-TE sets.
  4. Nintendo Switch Thread

    E3 was kinda disappointing for Nintendo. I thought that we would get a Metroid-level surprise like last year and that just didn't happen. Smash looks great, of course, and they have a fairly decent lineup this year, but I expected more. I thought that we would get some reveals for games like Pikmin or Animal Crossing and a few ports of games like Skyward Sword or Mario Maker. I guess that's just not Nintendo's style anymore - E3 is about just a few games, with others getting more attention at their own "Nintendo Direct" events. I'm probably most excited for Fire Emblem - at least early 2019 should be decent with Fire Emblem and hopefully Yoshi. I also bought Golf Story for $9 during their E3 sale a couple of days ago. It's really fun for what it is and I definitely recommend it if you like old-school RPG's or golf games.
  5. Nintendo Switch Thread

    I'm getting a tad burned out on Breath of the Wild actually. It's a phenomenal game, but I almost feel like the 120 shrines are too much. I'm actually to the point now where I have 104 of them, so the ones that are left are super hard to find and I've had to peek at a few guides online. After 65+ hours seeking out all of the shrines is starting to wear out its welcome - I wish that there were some bigger dungeons in place of some of them.
  6. Fortnite

    It's designed for the cosmetics to "work," which isn't easy to pull off either. Having ridiculous costumes and gun camos actually looks pretty ridiculous in games like Call of Duty, but it fits in Fortnite because of the art style.

    Anyone need a shortstop or 3B upgrade? I'm still shopping one of Matt Chapman/Kyle Seager/Asdrubal Cabrera/Eduardo Escobar. I would be looking for an outfielder or pitcher.
  8. Assassins Creed Odyssey

    Origins was a great game, but it actually may be have been too much, if that makes any sense at all. It was really fun and there was a lot to do, so I spent a tone of time with it...which means that I'm not all that interested in doing it all again in Ancient Greece so soon after the previous game. This series really needs to be every other year.
  9. PHREAK'S Dynasty League (Discussion Thread) 2018 draft

    Lions017 Sends: 3.8 and T. Ginn @CalLionsFan Sends: 6.8 and K. Dixon
  10. Solo: A Star Wars Story

    I really liked this one. I really liked the Last Jedi too, but this was a lot of fun. The pacing was a little off at times, but it was a good movie overall.
  11. PHREAK'S Dynasty League (Discussion Thread) 2018 draft

    Once the season opens I'll have several third-round picks available if anyone has an older player or just someone that they want to move on from. I also have some extra WR's (Ted Ginn Jr., Trent Taylor) that could be useful pieces in a deal. I'd consider trading Jared Goff too. I'd mostly be looking for a RB or TE.
  12. Rather lose in the playoffs or Super Bowl?

    Super Bowl. I hate the attitude of people that would rather lose earlier to "save themselves the heartbreak." Come on. Get as far as you can. You never know when you'll be back. You should always want your team to make it as far as they can each year.
  13. Chicago Cubs Thread - #secondhalfcubs

    Schwarber seems like Soriano 2.0 in the field. He has a really good arm (that's why the metrics love him so far I think) but he's just awkward out there. He makes everything look like an adventure even if he makes the play, and his screw-ups tend to be very memorable. The overall package actually ends up being passable, but his mistakes stick out so much that it makes you wonder how he could possibly be above average.
  14. Lions Forum Fantasy Baseball Discussion Thread #31

    I've seen a lot of leagues that have minor league squads or "taxi squads". You'll find them more in dynasty leagues, whereas this is really just a keeper league. I would welcome the addition, but I'm not sure if it would really help teams stay more competitive or not unless there's a hard limit on how many minor league guys you can have on your whole roster. The draft would definitely change with something like this - I like the idea of doing a normal draft and then a minor league one, perhaps even mirroring real MLB where those picks can't be traded. Have we ever considered moving toward more of a dynasty-style format, where you hold onto much more of your roster? Right now there are 16 teams with 5 keepers each, so everyone that isn't competing is trying desperately to get those Top 80 players to turn their fortunes around. Everyone wants to get a Trout or Harper or Machado before the other teams do, so teams bloat their rosters with minor league players and young prospects, just hoping that one or two will develop into stars. In a league where you keep more players, depth matters a hell of a lot more, and I think that people are much more hesitant to drop or trade productive players and just hold prospects instead.

    My team is Top 8 in every category except the pitching rate stats and I'm 2-5. I seem to run into everyone's best each week.
