    I don't know how I missed everything about this ... I'm devastated. Sorry about that guys.

    Work got insane the last couple weeks. Hopefully I can get in next season!

    I like the settings, but I'm confused by the innings pitched stat. I understand the need for an innings pitched cap, but it's also counted as a statistic. Wouldn't everyone finish the season at 1500, making the stat kind of pointless? Or am I missing something? (I normally always use innings pitched as a stat, but set the cap for GP rather than IP, so it rewards pitchers who can go farther into games).

    You're absolutely right and thank you for pointing that out. I have taken out IP and ER as stats and added ERA and WHIP.
    Pitching stats are now: Wins (W), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP)

    Thanks man.

    It would have been great to have you in the league man. Next season for sure.

    My roster as constructed would not have reached 1500 innings (last year)

    Care should be taken when changing scoring after a draft

    Hello fello Fantasy sports dudes!

    I am in a different baseball league and have been offered a trade that i wanted to run by you. I'd be giving Adrian and Beltre and Ichiro SuZuki and receiving Troy Tulowitzki and Mike Minor... any thoughts??

    IMO that really depends on positional needs. Generally speaking, the infield spots (minus 1B) are the hardest positions to get value out of, and Troy and Adrian are two of the best at their respective positions. Due to his ability to run, Troy is more valuable than Adrian, but he also has significant injury risk due to being injured last year. Adrian is as consistent as they get in fantasy. Mike Minor has potential, but he hasn't turned that potential into anything above a spot-starting IMO. If you feel confident in your ability to replace Adrian at 3rd base, I'd take the trade, because if Troy is healthy he's the best shortstop by a country mile. Really depends on your positional needs and depth.

    Thanks for taking the time to share some input Kadazzle!

    The injury risk of Troy is what's holding me back from pulling the trigger right now.

    I have Miguel Cabrera at 3B as well, so I am good at 3B.

    2 other thoughts to consider. Firstly, this is a keeper league so my thought is Troy is more valuable because he's 5 years younger than Beltre. Secondly, this league does allow 2 utility spots which means not having to choose between Beltre or Cabrera at 3B spot. They would both be in my lineup every night they were playing.

    Maybe if you saw my team you'd be able to make an even better recomendation... 14 team keeper league (keep 3 hitters, 2 pitchers, stats used are R, HR, RBI, SB, OBP and W, S, K, ERA, WHIP.
    C - Salvador Perez
    1B - Paul Konerko
    2B - Brandon Phillips
    3B - Miguel Cabrera
    SS - Erick Aybar
    LF - Ben Revere (LF, CF, RF)
    CF - B.J. Upton
    RF - Ichiro Suzuki (LF, CF, RF)
    OF - Angel Pagan
    OF - Dexter Fowler
    UTIL - Beltre
    UTIL - Ryan Doumit
    Bench - Jordan Pacheco (C,1B,3B)
    Bench - Matt Carpenter (1B, 3B, RF)

    SP - Cliff Lee
    SP - Kris Medlen
    SP - James Shields
    RP - Kenley Jansen
    RP - Rafael Soriano
    P - Max Scherzer
    P - Julio Teheran
    Bench - Jonathan Broxton

    I could use the extra pitcher at the end of the bench, and having 2 hitters on the bench doesn't help me as much as having a Pitcher i can use...

    Would love to have your input!

    can we make the max acquisitions around 60 instead of 40? I'ts a long season and there's always lots of tinkering to be done in baseball.

    Hey Mack,

    I set it to 40 to keep room for tinkering but also to reduce add/drop abuse. I think it actually averages to around 2/week.

    Thanks everyone for playing and staying active in the league. Rotisserie was interesting and I'm not sure if you all will be interested in that format for next season. I'll start a new thread and league in the spring.

    Final standings:

    1 drizz
    2 Mack North
    3 JägerBombers
    4 SLUGgerS (jbml)
    5 Kadazzle
    6 Tucas

    Great season Drizz! Congrats on the CHAMPIONSHIP!

    I've been playing seasons with buddies for a few years now thru rotisserie, but I've found it's not interesting enough. Guys get down early and quit setting lineups normally. I'd be open to playing a different format for sure, but if we continue this way, then I'll pass next year.

    I agree, H2H will be the way to go for next season. Hopefully we can get some more teams in the league as well.
