Rotoworld Updates - Writer?

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby wrveres » Wed May 16, 2007 4:12 pm

Lets get one thing clear here, he doesn't write much .. He copy and pastes news blurb's and adds a quick comment or lame joke sometimes, thats all. Those of you that think he writes those entire news blurbs better look again.
And questioning somebodies manhood because they don't enjoy another persons sense of humor seems a little stupid IMO. It makes me question their manhood.

Rotoworld used to be my homepage. Not a day would go by that I didn't check the site, even in the winter.
Not only do I no longer read rotoworld regularly, I only check it on a rare occasion, if that.

The bottom line is, it is just one man posting a news blurb and tacking on his brief opinion. I won't even get into how many times that opinion has been wrong.

So because it's free means no one can say anything bad about it? Yahoo fantasy baseball is free but because people point out what things could be better it has vastly improved over the years. The Cafe is free but they still welcome suggestions and comments to try and improve the site. Maybe in this particular case complaining about jokes isn't helping anything but to make a blanket statement that complaining about anything free is illogical, well, is illogical.


I can understand what people are talking about in having to sift through garbage...take everything that Slomo007 and Teddy Ballgame have to say...that's garbage too...but its really easy to just read right past it, and bypass having to express your negative opinion of them because it really shouldn't affect you... Just as I can predict what the comeback will be to my nonsense reply, at the end of the day I don't think anyone should be able to complain about what is or isn't when something is just given to you...quit crying

Can you show me where I complained about it? Oh that's right, I didn't. ;-D

I should have mentioned the blurb that I read wasn't actually from Rotoworld. I forget which magazine I bought but it seemed to sacrifice stats/facts for humour. I've also found the same to be true for Fanball. Since then I've kind of taken fantasy baseball advice from "funny" sources with a grain of salt. Just the facts works nicely for me. I don't care if it reads like a dictionary as long as it is helpful. Telling me that a minor league baseball player can't hit a beachball is not helpful.

They forgot to capitalize Cafe. Slackers. ;-7

:-D

I still use Rotoworld and have no problems with the joke here and there. As long as the updates are good like they've been, the info is easy to find, and it's free, I won't complain about someone having a little fun. B-)

Bengie Molina drove in four runs with a single and a (gasp) triple Wednesday against the Astros.

Short of an appearance of the Loch Ness Monster in McCovey Cove, we're not sure what could have distracted the Astros outfielders long enough to give Molina a triple.


Great line :)

rotoworld isnt just for updates on players, theres also other valuable stuff..
weekly waiver wire where they talk about valuable players that could be available on waivers.
week that was where they talk about players from the past week.
week ahead where they talk about players for the upcoming week, including 2 start pitchers, top hitters/pitchers parks, caught stealing % as to what players could be good for steals or not, RH/LH batter/pitcher matchups, aswell as injury updates.
and more.

for the news updates. the part in black is the news, and the part in blue is his opinion on that news. you can agree or not agree, i dont really think he cares.
