Hey all, it's that time of year.

 

Same deal as always $100 per team MUST be paid before draft. If anyone has a problem with the draft date/time post here and we'll try to switch it to fit everyone.

 

If there's anyone that hasn't been in this and is interested please post here or PM me with any questions.

 

Thanks and good luck all

I'm in! 

 

Draft date is good for me, though I may do what I did last year and ignore my team for the first week.  Worked out pretty well for me.  :lol:

 

Hooray baseball!!  :bliss:

I'll let John know, if you haven't already.

 

I assume Siwat is out, as his food truck is in high gear right now.

 

I'll have to decide if John and I are sharing a team again (probably) or not.

It is indeed a full time job - for a brief period of time I was actually getting paid to do it - that was fun. 

Now, with 2 kids and working for a startup that has nothing to do with fantasy baseball, I barely have time to watch the Sox. 

Still, this is a fun group - even though at the end of last season I told myself I would not, just when I think I'm out, they pull me back in.

South Paws will make 9 and hopefully Rancid Ponchos will be back so we should have at least 10 this year. Still open for a few more teams if anyone else wants in.

Oh excellent.  I guess Roo replaces Siwat this year :)

(Siwat's gonna owe me lots of Thai noodles for paying his bill from last year.  On a good note he's found a place in Brooklyn to park the truck and been selling out on most days.)

Let's Make This Thai Noodle Truck Happen

thaitruck0113.jpeg

NOOOOOODLES0113.jpeg There are certain Kickstarters we fully support, and this Thai noodle food truck is one of them. In the video below, Siwat Thitiwatana talks about getting his Mamu Thai Noodle truck on the road in New York City, and he's got 29 days to go in fundraising. This afternoon he told us a little bit about what would be on the menu, mostly dishes he has brought over from Bangkok where his family owns and operates three noodle shops.

Siwat tells us, "I went on a noodle journey in Bangkok a few years ago to find as many of the best recipes for Thai Noodle dishes as i could... some of those recipes will be featured on the truck. Dishes will include: Pad Thai, Pad Siew, Kua Gai (stirred chicken noodle dish), Boat Noodles, and Khao Soi." He also plans to "run weekly specials like grilled pork and sticky rice and curry puffs." On the Kickstarter page, he further explains the research that went into the dishes:

"We have done our homework with these recipes. Our Uncle Jirawat currently operates three noodle shops in Bangkok. We are talking about dishes that have been handed down for generations in Thailand! This is truly tasty food, and it deserves an audience. Mamu Thai Noodle will have talented chefs on the truck making sure the quality of our food is always excellent."

To contribute to the cause, head over to the Kickstarter, where rewards include a bear hug, cooking classes, and catered events.

I'm sorry I couldn't give you guys more notice. I didn't know I couldn't make the draft until minutes before I posted here. 

I'm not sure I did the right thing by just deleting my team but was just trying to minimize damage and didn't have much time to think about how to handle it. 

I also would have hated to have the draft rescheduled because there's no guarantee that I would have been able to make the new time -- things are just too unpredictable for me right now. 

Anyway, I suck and I'm sorry.

:lol:  You don't suck anymore than the rest of us.

 

No problem, we've gone with less teams in the past. It's just that had I known there was a chance we might not have 10 we could have worked on getting a couple of extra teams just in case.

 

Hope you can make it back for next year but I'm still going to blame you if I lose this year  :fingersear:

Yeah looking at your team this morning, I think I should have pushed John more in that direction.

 

The other thing I was thinking of this morning is perhaps the league should have added one more bench spot to thin out the waiver wire a bit...

Figured I'd try grabbing the thin positions first and fill holes later on. Tulo with the 7th pick was clearly a reach, I just hope he stays healthy this year.

 

 

I almost suggest adding another spot myself

I kept pushing him towards Fiere as well to compliment Kimbrel and Chapman, but he wouldn't budge.  Kept arguing that Carl Crawford was undervalued@!#*$ and needed to be grabbed.

Wait what?  I thought the draft was this coming Sunday night?  Fail.

 

I do not mind my team, my pitching and relief pitching is VERY weak.  Going to end up at the bottom of the saves again.

Hanley out for 2 months.  Interestingly the Auto Drafter put him at 3B and gave you two other Third basemen....

My hitters are pretty solid (esp my 3 regular OFs), but as usual I have way to many outfielders.

 

When do add drops begin?

So was I.  I couldn't make up my mind if you were auto-drafting, taking your time & being really cautious, or not paying attention to when your pick came up.  :lol: 

 

Overall, I'm pretty happy with my team.  I only had one brain-fart & ended up with a player I don't really want, but we'll see what happens. 

 

And there's a certain pitcher that I wish I had, but some Asshole scooped him up one pick before me.......  ;)

I'm pretty happy with my pitching.  Got some solid guys in my starting rotation and for a change, I have more than 1 closer worth a damn.  I almost pulled the trigger on Francisco just for kicks, but I couldn't bring myself to do it.  :lol:

My outfield and starters are VERY good.

 

Anyone want to trade a closer for OF or SP.

 

Got an offer already but didn't think the closer was worthy of the outfielder requested.  I will probably be wrong in a few weeks.

But he has a 3 HR game.

 

Thank you, I had 1 closer.  Well two, but dont think the Astro's will have many save opportunities.

 

I need a true 1st Basemen. And I hate Uggla.
