We now have 62 full leagues! 51 leagues have already drafted. 447 different players have been selected so far. Next week I’ll have all the numbers in the draft recap. We’re down to desperation time. I’m now trying to fill a LAST CHANCE RCL, drafting Saturday at 2 pm ET. There are still a few spots left. Contact me if you are interested in getting in on that league. Or to be put on the waiting list in case any league has a late dropout.
League managers, you can also contact me if you need a replacement owner, or just put a message in the comment section.
19 trades involving 53 players have already been completed, as the season can’t start soon enough. I acquired Brett Lawrie to join Corey Hart, Derek Jeter, and Pablo Sandoval in my single DL slot. The whining has begun. Clayton Kershaw was traded yesterday (along with Omar Infante) for Jedd Gyorko, Jeff Samardzija, and Bobby Parnell. And last night, Giancarlo Stanton was flipped for Jason Heyward and Alex Cobb. Check out the Fantasy Baseball forums all season long to see what kind of deals are being made. You can find the RCL under “Everything Else.”
Mitchell Boggs has been a key pickup this week after the injury of Jason Motte. Some are grabbing Trevor Rosenthal as well since the Cards will be sure to try different closers if Boggs doesn’t make an impression early. (I drafted Boggs, but of course had already dropped him. Waaa.) Kyle Lohse is also being picked up now that he has signed with the Brewers, along with Aaron Hicks and Yasiel Puig.
Watch for Sky’s report on the new RCL Writer’s League, coming up today after the podcast.
How about a reminder what we’re playing for? This.
Uh, 12-team leagues. 25-man rosters. Snake draft, roto, 5×5. 180 Games Started limit for pitchers. Daily lineup moves. 1 DL spot. What?? That’s crazy! Sorry, 1 DL spot.
I got nothing else. Let’s get the season started.
