I hope you and yours are safe and healthy during these tough times
Today would have been Opening Day...
Absolutely, one of my favorite days of the year!!
Would Shane Bieber have thrown a no-hitter?
Would Nico Hoerner pull a Tuffy Rhodes and hit 3 bombs?
Would Verlander have struck out 15?
Ahhhhh, the imagination runs wild!!!
Hang tight, stay safe and we will get through this better than ever!!
As I was watching Scott Van Pelt last night (by the way, the BEST in the business!), he interviewed Rob Manfred.
Here is a synopsis:
**optimistic that things could get ramped up again by the middle of May
**probably not be able to play a full 162-games
**will need to be creative with the scheduling
**possibility of playing seven-inning doubleheaders is on the table.
This is certainly going to be a crazy season.... and I can't wait to get started!!
As for Fantasy Baseball, we are trucking along.
I hope you all had as much fun as I did during the redraft.
Thank you for making it go so smoothly.
They will start at the end of next week and most likely will be every Fri/Sat until the season starts... hopefully, this will give you a little something to look forward to each week.
You are free to trade!!
Enter your trade into the system...send me a note letting me know a trade is in the system.... and I will process, just like preseason.
**Injured List (IL)
A player is only eligible if that player is officially on the MLB IL
Some of you have asked if players like Sale, Thor, Severino will be eligbile because they are out for the year... I am leaning against letting these players on since it might have affected redraft or trade decisions... but I will give it due consideration.
Would you be interested in jumping in a 1-yr league draft for $50 or less?... I'm thinking of ways to keep us entertained while not spending much money..... if you would be interested, send me a quick note letting me know.... I think it would be fun having a couple of drafts per week for low stakes.
