oh, and by the way, your explanation for going to Downs only 1 out after the SP exiting, 5 outs to go, with Frasor and Ryan still in the 'pen, neither of whom worked the night previous... makes no sense either.
Like I said, it takes a little common sense sometimes. I think everyone else here understood the explaination
It's simple. When the the game is going down the tubes (bases loaded, 1 out), you bring in your pressure guy to salvage the game. If he's successful, they enter the 9th with a lead and he can proceed to get the save as well.
Not that hard
Everytime y'all feel the need to berate someone for "wasting time" posting "dumb" questions, its always followed by 2-4 pages of obnoxious self-righteousness and arguments - that actually DO waste time. It was a perfectly valid question. Maybe he's new to fantasy baseball and doesn't know everything that you and the delicate genius Maris know (hence the need for a forum). Maybe he wanted to make sure there were no other variables at play, like an injury, that doesn't show up in the box score (so he can act before the rest of his league). I'm a first year player, keeping my bro's team warm while he's in Iraq, and that wasn't common sense to me - that's why I look at this forum. If I knew more I wouldn't need this resource. Folks are here to improve their bullpen, not to be awed by Crippler and Maris's baseball IQ. No one needs your approval to post, sheesh
Well said Olly.
The Fantasy Cafe forums (baseball and football) have probably been the sites I've visited the most over the past 4-5 years. When I started playing fantasy sports, my mainstay was the Fanball forums. I quit using them because of all of the name calling, bickering, "hey look at how smart I am," and pissing contest postings that become more of the norm than the exception, and it was then that I switched to these forums. To be honest, it seems as if these forums are starting to regress to those same characteristics, which is a shame, because there seems to be some great guys on here that enjoy helping others.
Plain and simple...not everyone here has been playing fantasy sports for years, and not everyone here can dedicate hours each day researching the intricacies of the sport or the hobby. We were all novices at one point in time, and I'd like to think that we have all become above-average "managers" thanks to the support of those that have been more knowledgeable than us at the time.
We all have had "basic" or novice questions at some point. We need to respect those that come here seeking expert advice, no matter how "stupid" you think their questions may be. A little more maturity would go a long way here.
If novice questions bother anyone, that might be a signal to start your own fantasy site for "experts" only.
Not slamming on anyone here in particular, just my observations of some trends I've noticed.
