Thank You - 30 Teams in 30 Days Guys

Postby octagon999 » Thu Aug 23, 2012 8:00 pm

I just wanted to thank the guys who put in the effort for the excellent "30 Days" articles. They helped me look like a baseball genius in my league. I give them and this site the credit.

Because of the way people did keepers, I had a shot at exactly 1 SP in the top-20 rated pitchers to start the year. By reading your articles, and focusing my draft around your "targeted" players, I was able to draft an excellent pitching staff that with maybe 1 or 2 exceptions well out-pitched their ADP and O-ranking. The offense had a decent draft as well, but the difference maker was pitching.

Thanks for all your hard work, your excellent advice, and to the knowledgeable commenters who also bring team-specific knowledge to this site as well. What's funny is reading comments like "nobody predicted this kind of performance from x" and me thinking... well, actually someone did. :)

Nope. But Chris Sale, Capuano, and others paid off well. Very, very well.

You're welcome! If i were to write a mid season follow up though I have advised that you sell. Hopefully you have cut bait by now.

I have made adjustments as the year progressed, but they got me off to a great start, and then you can evaluate pitching as the season unfolds and keep an eye on the WW.

You know, it would be a lot of work, but a "month before the playoffs" review of the 30/30 would be an awesome feature. Hits, misses, where do we go from here sorta thing, recapping the original articles, maybe in the comments section if nothing else.

That kind of thing would fall on me, and there's no way I have the time to make that work. If someone else wants to write it though, have at it.
