Who has the best EOG team?

Re: Who has the best EOG team?

Yeah 0 chance i keep Price. never even considered it. I value the three im keeping a good bit over Price. guys im keeping are consistent every year in being elite scoring SPs. I will take that over youth, hype, and potential (not that price hasnt proven himself as a stud already, just not the CC caliber stud)

I will likely be dealing CC after the draft though so should get interesting.


And as for the trophy, fu breaks :finger004
 
Re: Who has the best EOG team?

Tripp you won't make the playoffs this year. And when you can't make the playoffs in what you call the easiest division that will be funnies.
You said this last year and last year i actually had another top team in my division and still made it no problem (#1 seed also).

i am obviously going to win the divsion this year. this year is about more than that. Anything lower than 14-6, top points in the league, and league champion will be a disappointment.
 
Re: Who has the best EOG team?

tripp you take another penny from moldy before bricker gets his 250 ill break your pinkie pal:cheers
i messaged moldy today and he told me everything was good between him and brick so not sure if hes already paid it or what

he should have some cash he just won a jackpot and i sent him 150 a day or two ago for the other contest.
 
Re: Who has the best EOG team?

i know he has owed him for a while and it used to be a lot more than 250 i thought. they kept doing double or nothing shit and bricker ended up more than 800 bucks i think it was.

im happy to hear he has at least made payments and got it lower but no idea why its not all paid off when he has been paying me and just told me him and bricker are fine. he didn't necessarily say he paid it all off already but said everything is good which could mean him and brick have an understanding

i like the guy so hope he isnt playing games
 
Re: Who has the best EOG team?

It's going to be an epic battle this year of most annoying poster...

tripp thinking he's Bill Polian, despite being Matt Millen

Integrity talking to us like the 14-15 year old kids he plays with in his "highly competitive" leagues, and breaking down our fantasy "personalities" every time he talks about a trade or pick up.
 
Re: Who has the best EOG team?

timely i promise i will make it unbelievably bad when i start dominating this season. most of you will will consider quitting the league due to how much i will talk about my winning ways. i promise you that

Not worried on a guy named MC? He has a top set of keeps..

How can it get any worse dude? You haven't shut up about being the best since you lost by 5000 in the finals.

He has top keeps to guys like yoyo. Guys that think all young players will produce to their potential right away

Most likely Pineda is not a top 20 sp this year. Stras on an innings limit. felix is a stud but not easy being a 600 pt guy when he cant win.

Should i just blow everyone in here instead telling them how great they all are and how i one day aspire to be like them?

Nah id rather tell them to suck it and watch me win the title. :pop:

Pineda has dominant stuff and will get tons of run support and win games while racking up ks. Strasburg is on a 160-170 innings limit. That translates to 26 starts of 7 ip. he is a dominant pitcher and will also k tons of guys. Felix is felix. He will be frustrating but if the M's can find a way to score hell be top 5. I think he was top 7 last year with 0 run support.Miggy is a top 3 bat and has Prince in the lineup with him. Hosmer will be very good too. And I am hoping Yu is the real deal.

you have me thinking this is a league of 14-15 yr olds
 
Re: Who has the best EOG team?

i definitley dont think you have bad keepers mc, just was pointing out they arent sure things studs at the same time. i think it will be frustrating owning stras down the stretch when they start skipping starts and he doesnt have a 2 step for over a month or you get screwed because they decide to skip him on a thursday and you already started him etc.

no doubt miggy is a top bat and I could see him being #1 this year with prince. his value also goes up moving to 3b. Him, jose, and pujols the top three. jose's edge is getting to play in hitter friendly parks more often and might have some help this year if lawrie puts it together right away
 
Re: Who has the best EOG team?

You guys don't understand that keepers don't matter.

Give me Tuck's squad and I'll still turn it into a winner.
Sure they do. Teams with top keeps have a bigger margin for error than teams with no keeps. A lot easier to draft when one can miss on a fair amount of draft picks and still be ok due to top keeps
 
Re: Who has the best EOG team?

Tripp be analyze my keeps one by one

thanks
McCutch- Stud. May be a little overhyped fantasy wise going into the year with lack of reliable help around him. Put him on a team like boston and he is a top 3 of. In pittsburgh still probably a shoe-in to finish top 10-15. good keeper

Victorinio- Not a flashy guy to take in fantasy, but always productive. seems to just pile up 15-18 pt weeks and finishes in the top 10 for OF. Will never be a top guy like braun, ells, or jose, but consistency from him is very settling as a keeper. Good keeper

Shields- Amazing last year, not sure if he is dependable as a fantasy ace. i prefer guys that are consistently at/near the top and shields hasnt been. Maybe that was his real breakout year in terms of moving towards elite status so we will see. I put him as a good keeper, but would keep my expectations in check when it comes to replicating last season

Ubaldo- he was brutal last year and not sure we can expect too much better now that he is in the AL full time. Luckily he landed in the shitty AL division and has a nice lineup if drubal, choo. and carlos all stay healthy. He eats up innings and i like horses that do that. if he can just split the difference between the past two seasons he will be fine as a keeper. potential top 20 sp

Ervin- Pretty bad keeper truthfully. i can see you trying to work the #4 sp gets to face other #4 sp pitchers angle and trying to deal him before the season. He is just not reliable, but out of all your choices have to go with him


Overall not a bad group but not a great group either. Probably somewhere in the middle of the league when ranking keepers. you're welcome
 
Re: Who has the best EOG team?

Jim Bowden of ESPN.com and MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM reports that a decision on Ryan Braun's appeal is expected this week.


Great news guys. We can finally begin soon
 
Re: Who has the best EOG team?

Exactly. Keepers matter, but obviously are far from everything. draft, trading, and waiver wire pick ups stil mean much more than keepers, but like cee said if you start out with an elite group of keepers you can miss on a lot more draft picks and still end up with just as good of a team as somebody who nailed their draft but had shitty keepers.

Funny how last year keepers seemed to matter when people kept saying only reason i had a decent team was cause of keepers :shoot:

Agree about strass later in the year. Gotta take it one week at a time in this league. And he will be dynamite at least for the forst 15 or so weeks of our season.
 
Re: Who has the best EOG team?

I kept Hanley and Buchholz last year and dominated.

You guys have fun with your great keepers. I will win with my impeccable draft skills, incomparable trade aptitude, and inimitable waiver wire pickups. :houra

Yes sir, all that other stuff u mentioned factors in as well. Guys who have 5 keepers better than another team have a huge advantage going into the draft. Not that easy to "win" every other spot in the draft vs a team to make up for lack of keepers.

You had the best 7 players in the whole league last year and didn't win the league. So that can only mean your other starting spots were weak and brought u down, no?
 
Re: Who has the best EOG team?

one thing i think we have to make sure of is that the schedule isn't fucked this year like last year

Make divisional matchups at the end of the season, not in the middle.

Also are going to go with a long week again the week of the AS break? Or we gonna just make that a four day matchup?

Without looking at the draft i would say u drated exceptionally well last year. Had a nice ww pick up with coco. And prolly some good deals.

Bad luck can happy easily during a draft . A top pick getting hurt early etc. No one can win the league each year with a bottom team of keeps season after season.

Yeah, cause kershaw/lester/ells/braun/hanley is a terrible set of keepers ...

our understanding was he didnt have to put himself in a bad spot in order to pay me...once he started playing more contests and casino and paying others off first that went out the window.
 
Re: Who has the best EOG team?

How is McCutch a stud? He scored 450.

You saying he's top 10-15 OF or top 10-15 overall bat?

The 15th OF is far from a stud.
Top 10-15 OF, with potential for top 5-10. like i said he would be a fantasy stud in many other situations but tough in pittsburgh. not as reliable as victo, but higher ceiling.
