    Ya, ok. Spirit of the league would be invoked.

    Well I predict a 301 pt season from Anderson! The K's are a huge difference.

    It's kind of interesting, in 2015 the total spread between the sum of the Top 5 pitchers and Top 5 hitters was only 104.5 pts. Last year it was 437 pts. James Shields kind of had a game-breaking season, but still, pitchers dominated this league last year. I still think that on the whole, the balance works pretty well, assuming everybody plays one player per position.

    Keon should be good for 200+

    I think the way to win this league is to punt a batter or two, and role with 6 SPs.

    It's due to the league wide increase in HR.

    I was kinda curious how Arencibia would have scored in his god-awful 2013 season, since this league wasn't around then. It's not as exciting as I thought, but 296 pts in 138 games is pretty respectable. He probably would have led catchers that season.

    That's a pretty good hypothesis, and since Shields allowed 40 HR I'm inclined to agree. I guess we'll see how this season goes... if pitchers dominate again perhaps I'll water down the Pts scored for HRA next season.

    The HR increase both suppresses batters and inflates pitchers.

    Are you sure about that?

    So at what point do I just lock jaysblue's team? Alternatively, I could just give him 13 roster moves for the season and keep everyone else locked.

    Meh. Just lock him now. Who cares if every team is competitive when a couple of owners don't even care?

    Zach's team is also full of studs

    It's a little embarassing for the league that the AJ Prellers are in second place.

    I was noticing that, pretty funny. Jose Altuve is filling it up.

    It's embarrassing that only 4 of the top 31 pitchers are owned and 5 of the top 35.
    It's also embarrassing that only 6 of the top 16 hitters are owned.
