    Which irl sport has the most depth?

    Ya baseball is the most complex from a managerial / GM perspective because it is a highly credible game - as in, the things that happen in it happen often enough to statistically significantly detect patterns and use those patterns to your advantage. Pretty much no other sport has that. In...

    As an outsider to the league I will just say that I’m generally against vetoing trades for any reason other than blatant collusion to boost one team at the expense of another. If one manager thinks a trade will help him then, with all due respect, it isn’t any of the rest of the league’s...

    The other changes they proposed I liked too - minimum three batters faced, teams get worse picks for tanking year after year, and expand roster size except during September, so teams can’t tank as hard and impact the playoff races while also giving teams extra space to make moves.

    Well if there’s legitimate interest may as well ask: - H2H and auction draft ok? Those are my strongly preferred settings - cap of 6 moves per week would be my preference as well, any objections? - Any other non-standard settings people feel strongly about? Da Letter El you know you want to...

    Ok well reply to this post if you’re interested. If there are eight signups (so seven replies) I’ll make a league and organize it. I’d prefer this one be free (don’t want to handle money over the internet) but otherwise I’m pretty flexible when it comes to settings.

    If there is any interest in doing a stand-alone year-by-year league I’d be happy to run it. Not sure if anyone in the keeper league would be interested though.

    Arenado is so much better than Adrian Beltre lol, dude had like 4/20 seasons as good as the average Arenado season I get that he stayed healthy and has impressive career totals but Beltre has one truly great season and that was 2004. Don’t understand why everyone has assumed he is a first...

    Ya, Sherrod Brown and Amy Klobuchar would be the strongest general election candidates. Especially Klobuchar. Neither will make much headway in the primary, however.

    Serious 2020 Democratic Candidates Discussion

    Harris is going to be tough to beat in the primaries. California votes early in the process now (on Super Tuesday I believe) which means that she will have a huge base of delegates in her back yard during the portion of the primary that actually matters. Warren is damaged goods after the whole...

    So DLE pointed out that one of his actions would've been altered rather obviously if there hadn't been a conflicting description of the harmful and beneficial safeguard. To be clear, harmful safeguard blocks beneficial safeguard (and Omniguard). This was not spelled out accurately in the...
