Coping with the all-star break...

Sleepers, updates, strategy, advice ... if it doesn't fit one of the more specialized categories, it goes right here! (Note: Please do NOT post trade, keeper or 'rate my team' questions - they have separate forums.)

I got some sleep, but before I did that I looked at the Games Played and Innings my team was on pace for and saw that I had too many OF and not enough C games, so I cut Wily Mo Pena for Bengie Molina. I also looked at the standings and figured out what I should trade for and what to trade away as half a season is a significant sample size to make more accurate Standings projections with.

And I also picked up Brandon Claussen.

Also since my private league with friends from high school is transaction fee based we give a 3 day period where transactions are free to retool your team for the second half and for the bottom dwellers to have time to improve their team without spending money on a lost cause.

Other than that, we do it to have a reason to go to the bar and get drunk. Personally, I'm using it as a reason to claim victory at the season's midpoint.

That's a great rule, and the first of its kind I've ever seen. I'm going to run that by my league as we revamp and expand upon our 7 year keeper league. Thanks! ;-D

My pleasure. It somehow got turned into a full week last night while we were all wasted after I claimed it didn't matter what they did, noone could catch me. Then I went home and stashed Brandon Lyon on my DL and picked up Jhonny Peralta to rot my bench so noone could have him out of spite.

Roster Information: 12 team league with the following categories:
Hitting--R, RBI, SB, OBP, SLG
Pitching--W, SVS, K/BB, ERA, WHIP

My league does not allow trades but has an Add/Drop Day every 2 weeks where owners can drop one player and add another. Also, outfielders in our league must play their actual position, meaning you must have a REAL centerfielder, leftfielder, and rightfielder, not a team of 3 rightfielders.

My Team:
