it's a standard 5 X 5 H2H

And is only limit our daily starting lineup? So we could run 10 starting Pitchers a day for the whole week, or 70 starts if possible?

2nd overall pick is still available. i'd want a later first rounder, and it would NOT cost a second round pick. maybe a third and change, depending on how far down i'm moving.

it seems pretty set in stone to me. it's a good idea, and i don't think sportsguy ever wanted it up for discussion anyways.


Okay, so it is a waiver process for the in season MiLB. Couple of questions, then:
1. Is this using the reverse order of the MiLB draft or is there a single waiver order that will apply to MiLB and MLB?
2. For waiver claims for MLB players I would think the players will be in the Yahoo database and requests will be posted to the website. However, for MiLB player that are not in the website what is the process?
3. Will players only be available via waivers and if so is there a weekly waiver date? My experience in the past was that free agents could be added on a first come first served basis but that players that have been dropped go through the waiver process. Just want to make sure I am clear on how this league will be set-up.


1. Single waiver order
2. Please see "In-Season Farm Pickups" under League Constitution posted by sportsguy.
3. Free agents first come basis. Dropped players on waivers for 2 days, after which they become free agents if unclaimed.

Okay, so here is what is posted for the In-Season Farm Pickups:

In-Season Farm Pickups
Each owner has 5 MiLB 'pickups' that they may use during the current season. Pickups may be traded.
Players must be added via the regular Yahoo add/drop procedures, i.e., they must be in the Yahoo database before they can be picked up (the Yahoo league setting for 'New Players Become Available' is 'Wait until called up to Majors').
Players must be rookie-eligible when they are picked up (< or = 150 AB; < or = 50 IP).
Pick ups must be announced after they are dropped (demoted), and before they clear waivers.
Example announcement: "Using my #2 pick, sending Strasburg to the farm"


So this is really just a chance to add players that have been added the MLB teams to the major league rosters since players must be called up to the Majors before they can be added? Will these players then be tagged in Yahoo as part of the team that picks them up? Also, not totally clear on the last couple of lines about pick-up announcements. Sorry for all the questions but this feature is new to me and I want to make sure I understand it clearly. Thanks!

streaming pitchers on a league this deep can do more harm than good.

It'll help you wins and k's but at the expense of your era and whip
