I think the Nats will have more players on their roster than wins by September. :-D

http://www.examiner.com/x-4891-New-Mexi ... -Strasburg

"We did things with class and you know where I'm going with that. It was a great game for Lobo fans to see. Our kids competed and he (Strasburg) found out his fastball doesn't work with Lobos, he has to throw the curve ball."

...


"There is nothing I can fault my team for. They played their butts off," said Birmingham. "I tip my hat to him (Strasburg), but he needs to work on his demeanor."



The piss poor journalist who wrote this article included two quotes from opposing players who indicated they weren't happy with Strasburg's antics on the mound, but the writer didn't go into them. Anyone know what happened?

They also added a new league setting this year that overrides the "ST probability rule" so players are only added to the leagues database when the players actually makes the major league roster. If this rule is enabled by the GM, Wieters, Hanson and Zimmerman were not available on draft day. At least its consistant

There are multiple threads here on the Cafe where I've addressed this subject. In particular, what you're saying here is not necessarily true. With the new league setting you've mentioned, we have more flexibility to add players when there is interest, whether or not they've been promoted. I don't know if I'd call it mysterious or random, but if the powers that be decide Strasburg is sufficiently interesting, he could show up mid-season. Leagues that are horrified by that idea could have chosen to use the new league setting.

And no, I don't know if and/or when he'd be added.


Appreciate the correction!
If you found my advice helpful, please help me

By the look of the title of this Yahoo! video "Fantasy Baseball: Pick Up Strasburg?", they think he is already in the player pool or at the very least he will be put in at some point this year.

Here is the video

hey genie. thanks for all the time and effort.

im a commish of a plus league. im pretty sure i just imported the settings from last year. i dont remember choosing (i probably just forgot) an option on when to add to the player pool. is there any way customer support would change it for me? also, its a h2h league and the playoffs were set to none, which seemed wierd.

anyway, thanks for the help
