Re: Thought This Was Cool

Google "St. Louis Browns mascot logo" ... under the Image option.

It was their weird mascot design.

Re: Hall of Fame Nominees (2225-2229)

Doug Rapp Not sure why he isn't getting a little more love. 300+ Wins. A .725 Win %, pretty incredible ERA/WHIP (though, his FIP was more than half a run higher so he pitched for some pretty awesome Washington defensive teams), and a pair of Cy Young trophies on his mantel. EDIT: When I wrote this,...

Re: Re-Run Draft w/No Restrictions

Do we manually redraft the entire 100, or stop after 32? If we do stop at 32, how does anyone ensure getting any value out of R3-4-5 picks? Stop at 32. 3 days of OS is enough. I am in enough leagues that I can tell you most drafts have between 35-45 players who project to B+ overall grades, so ther...

Cincinnati Throwing in the Towel

Unloading all assets older than 28 while there is still time for competing teams to grab them while playoff eligible. I have a decent crop of teen prospects so I'm really looking for picks 3 years out and/or players in their young 20s = ready for the majors. The prize pieces for trade are: SP Ona Ka...

Re: Re-Run Draft w/No Restrictions

Yes, this is moving at the speed of continental drift. Clearly not an exercise anyone truly wishes to indulge. Fine. While I continue to be confounded by the need to restrict ourselves to an agreed upon pool of 32 names from which to draft, which we can hardly ever execute properly more than once a ...

Re: Bringing Back the Hall of Fame

Looking at the nomination filter and the players it generates, I think the "5 years as an All Star" needs to be bumped to the "Any *two* of the following" list :arrow: using that factor alone to nominate a player is creating some awfully weak candidates that probably should not be nominated. Also, t...

Bringing Back the Hall of Fame

As we are very near the midpoint of the season (in fact, tonight marks 81 games played) ... the thought has been on my mind about trying to resurrect the Hall of Fame. I've requested HOF Commissioner credentials from Admin, since Damien435 has left the site and took his credentials with him. The las...

Re: Salary Leagues

I think there are three left:

Barry Zito League (no vacancies)
Andy Messersmith League
Kevin Brown League

The latter two have openings.

There used to be four but the Catfish Hunter League recently closed up shop, contracting into the BZL.
