Re: Official TrekBBS Fantasy Baseball thread!

I was just looking at the league that just drafted tonight. It's a Roto league and not Head to Head. I've never done Roto before either so this really will be an interesting year.

Re: Official TrekBBS Fantasy Baseball thread!

same here. kinda wish I had noticed that before drafting, but we'll see where it goes. Auction league, roto scoring, non-traditional categories, going to be an interesting experience...

Yeah. I don't mind, as it will be new but considering how long I've played fantasy baseball, I habitually thought it was Head to Head. Also, ESPN says Roto is the most standard game, yet they didn't really have a Roto 101 page to learn the rules and the scoring. They talked about it briefly but it was hard to find. I'm almost at the point where I'm learning on the fly so I might make some transactions that might be questionable. It will be fun.

Re: Official TrekBBS Fantasy Baseball thread!

Very sad. In the Keeper league, I just traded Hanley. With that, the last of my original draft keepers is now gone, dynasty has completely turned itself over. Checked my original 2007 team, and having re-drafted Buchholz, he's now the only player that is on both my 2007 and 2013 teams...

Re: Official TrekBBS Fantasy Baseball thread!

Can someone explain how roto scoring works? I'm probably going to end the day in last place, and I don't know what that means. Yeah I know it's only day one and I'm overreacting here, but it would be nice to know exactly what I'm looking for after the first week of the season. Might as well ask to see if there are those who play this format on a regular basis.

Re: Official TrekBBS Fantasy Baseball thread!

I only have a vague idea of how roto scoring works. You would think ESPN would explain it somewhere, but maybe not. But it's a long season and there's plenty of time to learn.

Edit to add: I did find this on ESPN's site. Maybe it'll help:

I have two players that were on my 2007 team. CC Sabathia is the only player I've kept since the 2007 draft, but if he keeps pitching like he did yesterday, that could come to an end. I also have Justin Morneau, but he was a re-draft.

Re: Official TrekBBS Fantasy Baseball thread!

An explanation of Roto from this page- http://sports.yahoo.com/fantasy/mlb/...g=ycn-10792917

In public Yahoo! fantasy baseball leagues, the default batting categories are runs, RBI, home runs, stolen bases, and batting average. The default pitching categories are wins, saves, strikeouts, ERA, and WHIP (walks + hits, divided by innings pitched).

For example, if you're in a 12-team league, and your starting lineup has scored more runs than any other team in the league, you'd get 12 points in that category. If you ranked second in your league in stolen bases, you'd get 11 points in that category to add to your 12 points in runs. Third in ERA? 10 points. Fourth in strikeouts? 9 points. And so and and so forth. If you ranked dead last in saves, you'd only get 1 point in that category to add to your other point totals.

So in a 12-team league, if you lead all 10 scoring categories, you'd have 120 points. If you were dead last in all 10 categories, you'd have 12 points. Your point total has the potential to change on a daily basis as each day's worth of statistics are recorded. As you might expect, point totals fluctuate wildly during the first few weeks of the season, but as the season progresses, they level off considerably.
It is similar to head to head that you are competing to have the best totals in each stat category, only in this case you are going against the whole league and it is over the whole season and not just a week.

Re: Official TrekBBS Fantasy Baseball thread!

So in that example the highest points anyone can get in the league is 120? I think as the week went on I was getting a little handle on how it worked, so that's good.

Re: Official TrekBBS Fantasy Baseball thread!

All I know so far is that I'm doing great

That, and the people in this league make TERRIBLE trades, so I should start proposing horribly 1-sided things soon, as they seem to just accept them...

Well, I've done two trades and like them so far for the most part. It also helps that my team finally got going at the end of the week. I do have a question though. How the heck did you get Harper, Sandoval and Davis. Man they've been on fire for you this week.

Re: Official TrekBBS Fantasy Baseball thread!

Reminder for the standard Keeper league: you gotta try and keep on top of your team. I think we've currently got 2 dead teams (Coaster and Crane Mutiny), and will be trying to replace them soon if no action is taken. Got a couple others that are questionable.

Not asking for crazy action, but please move your DL players to, well, the DL, and try either daily or weekly to set your rosters and pitching to play your guys.

Jespah and Tomalak, you two still interested in taking over spots in the Keeper league? Unless the dead owners show up soon, those spots are up for grabs, and you two showed interest when it came up before...

Re: Official TrekBBS Fantasy Baseball thread!

Was just going to post a notice similar to what scout had posted. I did another check today and we have three teams that have not made any roster moves of any kind, not even moving players to the bench. The two scout listed and Ow My Hip Hurts as well.

Funny that Crane Mutiny is 1st in the NL (and Coaster is 3rd in the AL) despite not making any moves.

I wish I could borrow some of their DL spots- I was up to five of my players on the DL and ended up having to drop a few because I didn't want to tie up the spots on my roster.

Re: Official TrekBBS Fantasy Baseball thread!

Small sample size, mostly. And auto-drafted, so it just means that they likely don't have many pitching bench spots, so all their pitchers play, and the bench hitters just sit there, so not awful for a small period.

Either way, no activity, and should be replaced with someone that wants to do it.

I also spoke to my buddy Drew (Ow my hip hurts) and he'd like to be replaced as well, just had a kid and doesn't have the time. So i think we're looking for three new members here.
