Everyone's still in right?

Anyone want to be first alternate for someone that may or may not come back?

I was able to add a site password which should prevent people from randomly grabbing accidentally abandoned teams. the password for the league is 'ed'.

i have a friend who might be interested in taking on a team, if need be. he's a mets fan.

although, given the history of the league, maybe y'all shouldn't let me bring anyone else in, so as the rest of y'all might have a chance of winning! ;)
the first step is admitting you're a runner.

running is a mental sport, and we're all insane.

if i may continue a thought from the 2017 thread...

instead of divisions, and if we did put some small meager cash money on the table, we could always award a smaller prize for the second-half winner. tally the stats at the all star break, reset the totals to zero, and see who does best from then on. that might be enough to keep people's interest.

alternatively, and i'd mentioned this in the message board, we could try to run an off-line head to head mirror league, where we sum up every team's weekly stats and match 'em up against that week's designated opponent. it'd take a fair bit of work to pull off, but would offer some distinction and maybe a reason for lower-tier teams to play.

altogether though, i was in 7th place at the end of june, and going into the last month, i honestly felt like if things broke just right, i might be able to make a run at the lead. and was really hoping to at least take second. and the devil toads climbed from 35 points to 60, and were within spitting distance of a few more points, too. and poor muddy chickens, looked like he was going to run away with the damned thing early in the season, and he dropped to 8th (and will plummet to 9th once his pitching stats get expunged). so the season is really up for grabs even late.

i guess the bigger issue might be how do we get the bottom of the league to get into the game, and keep trying to run out the best lineups and build the best rosters, but theoretically, the dynastic nature of our league should make that happen. those teams should be shedding salary and building future depth.

My team was all over the place this year, and I made bad lineup decisions because I wasn't on top of it every day. I left a ton of points on the table that could have put me into second place.

I'm back in for next year, and I don't want to make a massive financial investment, but a fun $20 buy-in or something is doable.
I believe that someday I will punch that arrogant foreman at the plant square on his fat nose; that I will get in the last word with my wife; that I will win the Irish sweepstakes; that the Mets will start a winning streak.

yeah. I don't want to get too heavily financially into fantasy. I'm already in Fman's league for like $100 or something.

but I was thinking like $20, or even 10.

at $20 we could do $120 to the winner and like $40 to the second half winner or like $5 for each category win.

I'm updating Ottoneu. league password is 'welcome abordick' which should help keep rando's from claiming teams that we lose and don't notice, etc.



new features and the like. playoffs, head to head?

http://community.ottoneu.com/t/head-to-head-scoring-coming-to-ottoneu-fantasy-baseball-in-2018/2669

this will be messy as it's new features, new coding. but we gotta do it. it makes it more competitive. I'm going to turn playoffs on unless there's overwhelming angst about it. We can vote on switching to head to head/divisions and the playoff format. The playoff format will always be head to head though, just an fyi.

I'm gonna make two threads for voting. one for head to head versus current, one for playoff options.
