  1. Lions Forum Fantasy Baseball Discussion Thread #31

    Well, we got lucky. @Herbie_Hancock will be taking over for Phreak effective immediately. He should be up and running by the end of the day.
  2. LFFKL 2017 Discussion Thread

    We're going to need a replacement for Phreak. If anyone is interested in joining or has an idea for a replacement owner, shoot me a PM.
  3. Lions Forum Fantasy Baseball Discussion Thread #31

    I've reached out to my guy of choice. He's very active in another league I'm in. Fingers crossed that he says yes.
  4. Lions Forum Fantasy Baseball Discussion Thread #31

    The league has spoken. ISSUE 1: We will NOT allow owners to draft players who are not in the system. I will immediately give up rights to Bo Bichette as a result. ISSUE 2: We will NOT allow owners to make waiver claims on players who are not in the system. On Phreak: I spoke with him off of FF, and he has decided to step away from the league. I am in the process of finding a replacement owner. For now, I will set his lineup so that his team doesn't take an automatic loss every week. I believe I should be able to find a replacement owner by the end of the week.

    It was a few years ago at this point. It was slightly before your time, I believe, @The Gnat. It's something I'm open to having us vote on, but we would have to make a very clear and detailed list of guidelines if we were to introduce a minor league system of some sort. If you'd like to throw out your vision of how it would work feel free and we can all throw our thoughts out there.

    My formal vote. Issue 1: NO Issue 2: NO
  7. Lions Forum Fantasy Baseball Discussion Thread #31

    League Vote Issue 1: Allow people to draft players who are not yet in the system. This would apply to any player not in the FA pool when the pick is made. Vote - Yes/No *If the league votes no, X immediately loses rights to Bo Bichette. Issue 2: Allow people to make waiver claims on players not yet in the system. This would apply to any player not yet in the system. Vote - Yes/No @davisblack will help me track the results.

    I genuinely thought Bichette would have been added to the system by now. Otherwise, I would have never drafted him. He may be added toward the end of the year, but at this point I doubt it. It’s a slippery slope allowing people to draft players that are so far out, let alone allowing waiver/FA claims on players. I can fully admit that I was mistaken on Bichette. Players have to hit the FA pool through the waiver process. There’s no way around it, or it wouldn’t be close to fair. It would be a mess, and I assume a lot of people would drop out of the league. I would. We should vote on whether or not to allow players to be drafted like Bichette was. We can vote on allowing Waiver/FA pickups on future players as well to settle the issue. If I could go back a few months I never would have done it. If we vote against allowing it, I’ll immediately drop the rights to Bichette and add a player from the FA pool. I’m going to make a post about the vote and @davisblack will help me track the results.

    I fully deleted him as an owner and sent out the invite an an effort to resolve whatever problem he was having once I read his message on FB. It all looks to be working now, though, thankfully.

    Seager is having Tommy John surgery. My team is a mess right now. I'm hoping Tucker gets called up in the next few weeks and something falls together when Bumgarner comes back. Otherwise I'll probably be looking to make a few moves.
  11. PHREAK'S Dynasty League (Discussion Thread)

    Checking back in for another year! Looking forward to continuing the rebuild and making a deep playoff run this year, hopefully. I'll be looking to move up in the draft this year. Players I'm willing to move in addition to picks: Kenyan Drake (RB), Rob Gronkowski (TE). Let me know if you're in the market as the drat approaches.
  12. The Lions Den: Visiting Free Agents

    Free Agency is something teams can go to and grab the last couple pieces for their run, or a complete dumpster fire can go to and add overpay for talent. Big names are great. There have been a bunch of guys who could have contributed, but like @Sllim Pickens said, it's about drafting, development, and implementing the system. It's no going to be flashy or exciting all the time. I've also been a Patriots fan my whole life, and I've watched Belichick groom a bunch of guys into stars only to watch them walk when they have to pay them. Half the battle is allocating your resources properly. So far I think they've been doing that well. I know I'm in the minority on some of those thoughts, though.
  13. The Lions Den: Visiting Free Agents

    I'm confident that they're building the roster for the long haul. This is exactly what the Patriots do every year. We're just not used to it. If they do this right, and I believe so far they have, and Patricia can coach and lead on his own, I think we're going to be very happy Lions fans for a long time. I've been begging the football Gods for this very scenario to happen, so I'm all in right now. I don't think they're going to roll to a SB or anything next year, but I love what I've seen so far. However, I'm interested to see how they handle the draft and how things play out this year, of course.

    **ANNOUNCEMENT** 1. I manually selected all of the keepers and processed the draft. However, many teams have more than one player missing. Pick up someone ASAP. 2. As a result of makeup picks and holes on rosters, please DO NOT add/drop anyone that wasn’t an original pick until Tuesday, March 20th at 8am. That gives everyone some time to catch up. 3. I’m sorry for any errors on the draft board this year. I try to do my best with a relatively busy real life, but stuff happens. The end of the draft got pretty muddy and confusing and I’m sure I made more than one error. That’s on me. Next year we can all do a better job of making things more clear. For now, I apologize for any mistakes on my end. I try hard not to make them, but they do happen from time to time. 4. I expected Bo BIchette to be added to the player pool by now. He is not. As a result, I will force my team to compete with 1 OPEN roster spot at ALL times this year until he’s added. That means I’m rostering 22 players, not 23. I won’t let myself pick up a DL player with his spot either. I will force myself to put someone else in the DL slot (example: Michael Conforto) before I can pick someone else up to add to the DL or my roster. Bo’s slot will not be used for any roster manipulation on my part, and you all are more than welcome to keep an eye on it and call me out if I make a mistake. I’m waiting on Bo. In heindsifht, it was pretty dumb on my part. ** After much doubt, we got the draft done in 16.5 days. I said 16 was the fastest we could slot it out, no one thought it could be done, and we almost hit the 16 day mark exactly. A big thanks to everyone being pretty active during that time. Hopefully we can take that activity over here to the league thread and have another fun season. Thanks, guys! Best of luck this season!

    The draft board was updated pretty late. When I did it, we were into the last round. Perhaps s it was my mistake. It certainly could be, and if it was, I apologize. We got to a point at the end of the draft where i was pretty lost on some of the names, what pick we were on, and what picks were make up picks and what we’re just time slot picks. We absurd amount of late picks, which can be expected with right slots, but pick numbers were rarely involved. I’m not saying you did any of that. I just got lost with some of it. That’s on me, too. The other night when I was working on the board I gave up mid way through and just submitted what I had, so I’m sure it’s not the only error. Feel free to pick whoever you want and just throw them in your roster whenever. I know that’s not the same as picking earlier, but It was a mess all around. I’m just glad it’s over.
