I have seen this in several posts at the Cafe, but do not know what it is. Thanks.

Helps if you put it in the post and not the title. I sat here a minute trying to figure out what exactly you were asking. :-D

Anyway, the answer is:

Bring
Up
My
Post

Bump is commonly used on message boards to bring the post back up to the top for additional input and/or replies.

Now you know. :-) ;-D

For the first part, you use the URL buttons above the box you type in. Click the URL button, put in the link, click the button again. It will look like what's in this code box:

Code: Select all
[url]www.yaddayaddayadda[/url]


As to the second question, I don't understand what you're trying to ask......If you click quote on someone's post, their entire post should be in the box you type in and you put your response underneath that. If in fact that's what you're asking....
Yes doctor, I am sick.

I think what you want to do is hit the quote button on someone's post. That will automatically put their post in a quote box.

Ok... I'm a newbie to Fantasy Baseball... well it has been at LEAST 15 years since I last did it... LONG before the internet system came into play!!!

Anyway... I have heard there are many different "projection" methods such as... PECOTA, Marcel's... ect... I assume they use different methods and such...

I would like to know what all methods there are... and maybe some opinions on them... I have NO idea where to start for doing a draft anymore, and can use all the suggestions I can get!!!

Also... the group I am with is going to do the Yahoo live draft.... I could use a LOT of pointers for that as well since i will need to let it do my picks for me since I will be on vacation in Italy at that time!!! 8-o

Thanks in advance for ANY help!!!

Also doing fantasy baseball for the first time. Since I've done Fantasy Football before and am fairly baseball savy, most everything makes sense, but there is one thing that I don't understand regarding pitchers. My league rules state that on weekly basis that I can have only 12 games started. I've been struggling to understand what that exactly means. Does it mean that between my combined nine pitchers per day that there can only be 12 starts between all of them in one week? To me that is what makes the most sense, but if that's wrong, I'd like to know before Opening Day.
