    Works here might have to take a hiatus to put the kid to bed but should not be an issue.

    A few tips for first time players:

    1) This is a draft & hold: No trades, no adds*, no drops, no injury replacements, no transactions of any kind.
    2) Job security is king: Avoid drafting players who are so shitty that they're likely to be benched or demoted if they suck.
    3) Defence matters... kinda: Errors and balks add points, while outfield assists subtract points.
    4) A career game can ruin your whole season: In addition to racking up points the normal way, no-hitters and cycles carry special anti-bonuses that can really torpedo your standing.
    5) Your ass is benched! If a shitty but streaky player like Jay Bruce is on a hot streak, you can bench him. However, keep in mind that over the course of the season, very few players will actually maintain negative scores. He may have burned you yesterday, but you don't want to bench that golden sombrero today.


    *teams who fuck up and autodraft will be allowed to add FA replacements before the season begins, and will then have their rosters locked

    The oh so sublime combination of job security, ineptitude, and durability is the devils mistress.

    There are only so many RA Dickey's out there

    Looks like the pre rank by Yahoo is actually tailored to the league! Looks pretty good actually.

    Only if you sort by projected stats and then Current. However, Yahoo will autodraft based on Pre-Rank, which is still based on standard 5x5. So if you autodraft and there's nobody in your queue, you will get Mike Trout.

    Alcides Escobar is really the Mike Trout of this format. Just consistently awful with no end in sight.

    When you go to set your preranks, the list to choose from is based on our stats, but on the page prior is says the default is Yahoo O-rank. I would advise everyone to at least go and spam the right button in the pre rank page so that if you do have to autodraft someone it will be good.

    8 should be good though I finish work at 7 and a normal 15 minute ride home may take an hr+ because of the storm.

    So minor inconvenience but i have just got word that i have to make a trip to Winnipeg this afternoon for work due to others incompetence. Bad news being that its a 2 hour drive back and i don't think i will be there in time for draft. I may be an hour or so late or if someone is interested they can take my spot.

    Again sorry for the minor inconvenience.
