Daily vs Weekly Lineups/Transactions

Postby Peeig » Fri Mar 20, 2009 7:30 am

I was wondering if most of you do daily or weekly lineups/transactions.............the reason i ask, is because I have done all of my leagues with daily lineup changs and transactions, but I am wondering if having a league or two with weekly transactions would be good to add more leagues, but decrease the related time per league.

i tried a non-serious league with weekly lineups. it just means that you don't care about that league.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

The Cafeholics ladder league is weekly with no bench. It's my only one. I definitely prefer daily changes but it's not a bad style as a change of pace because it presents some different challenges. Unfortunately, when your team is going well it can be very boring.

I like these responses, I was thinking it might be good to add these as my last few leagues (I already have 5 leagues that I am in).

Mattias, regarding your comment, why do they run the NFBC like this then?

You'd have to ask them.

My guess is that historically, leagues had weekly moves because they didn't have websites managing their teams but had to manage the teams with pencil, paper, a calculator, and a fax machine.

Haha, that's probably true. I was also thinking that with the type of money that is changing hands, they probably want to allow working professionals who can afford the league, the time to join/manage their teams.

Thanks for the response

My core league is weekly. Its a hardcore league H2H Points league with a decent prize pool, and most folks are on the page daily, but since most of us have jobs where we are either traveling or dont have net access all day (and a number of folks have little ones at home) we found it much more pleasant without daily moves.

It also has some added benefits
1. There is no advantage to racing to the comp after someone gets hurt. The few guys who can sit and surf the net all day arent at any great advantage.

2. Streaming is virtually impossible. Obviously the occasional two-start trash gets picked up and played, but there is no real advantage.

3. No need for Games/IP limits. You start whoever you want each week, if you happen to get 165 3B games who cares, you played it fair, no one cramming in extra starts each week

4. More people are active/less likely to drop out. When there is a need for daily adjustments you usually see more people dropping out when they are out of it. With weekly rosters it only requires a couple hours (at most) a week to stay competetive, and folks tend to be willing to stay active even after falling out of contention.

My main leagues are all weekly and I'm completely on board with all these reasons. If you have a league with a bench, there are plenty of tactical decisions that need to be made when setting your line-up.
