I just created an account with Fantasy Cafe and I'm excited to talk ideas with you all.
However, on the subject that stickkeys wrote about his commissioner wanting to switch keeper rules...
I know stickkeys very well, AND I play in the same league he's talking about, and I just want to clear up some things before you all agree to his one-sided argument.
First off, I saw that someone replied saying that the commissioner probably has awful keepers, which I found it funny that stickkeys did not include our commissioners keepers.
commissioners keepers are:
hanley ramirez(4th rounder)
prince fielder (2nd rounder)
zach greinke (7th rounder)
tim lincecum (19th rounder)
...ok obviously he doesn't have terrible keepers.
the truth of the matter is that stickkeys along with 2 other players in our league, have been relentless atgoing against the new keeper change. their reasons for changing is because it won't help the league since it's "complicating" and "too complex" to just name a couple of reasons. The truth of the matter is that they love their keepers that's the ONLY reason they don't want a change.
I'm at the point now where I could care less if we end up having 2 keepers or 4, I just want to play. But the fact is, is that only THREE managers in our league do not want the rules to change because they have the best keepers. Our commissioner wants to change the rules to 2 keepers because he feels like it would more competitive since perennially our baseball league ends up with two or three teams that can win, and everyone else is already out of the race by June.
Our commissioner wants to do this to makes things more even. It's nothing personal, he's just changing things up.
Look, stickkeys won the baseball league last year, so obviously he doesn't want any changes. not saying this means he's being punished but he's only concerned with himself.
Oh, and three of our players never pay attention to our leagues, they draft their team, maybe pick up and drop a free agent--and that's it. stickkeys and others have called them so they can say "yes" to their question that will go toward their "league vote."
As for me, I finished sub-par last year, was in first place for over a month, then injuries led to my demise. and like I said, I don't care if our league makes it 2 or 4 keepers, but I just wanted to clear up some stuff for you guys because stickkeys post is a one-sided comment, thoroughly written to help his argument.
