The Fantasy Baseball War Room is back!  I’m not saying the Fantasy Baseball War Room is back, as in, is a butt.  So, if Sir Mix-A-Lot is reading, I’m truly sorry for the confusion.  Our Fantasy Baseball War Room is one part draft tool, one part fantasy team evaluator, one part fantasy junkie’s s’s and g’s tool, one part holy, two parts smokes, three parts… How many parts is that so far?  Cause it’s only really seven parts total.  I think there’s one part kill-your-day-with-this-war-room-thing-a-maboob-as-a-pinwheel-spins in there too.  Essentially, this helps you practice building a fantasy baseball team.

If you’re unfamiliar with our Fantasy Baseball War Room, it’s a draft tool to help you track where you are at any moment in a draft.  It shows you if you have too many steals, homers… Or if your ERA or WHIP are too low.  Or too high.  Or if your lamb is still rare or should be turned (results vary on lamb).  If you’ve already drafted a team, go into the War Room, enter your team and it shows you exactly how stacked/dreadful the team is.  If you want to practice mocking for your Razzball Commenter League, do that too.  (Fantrax waived $80 fees for us, so go join some Razzball Commenter Leagues!)  If you’re in the middle of a draft, you can filter which guys are left that have the most home runs according to my projections.  Or the most steals, or the most runs or the most whatever (only applicable if “Whatever” is a category in your league).  If you’re in a bind, go into a Warm Room and take a shvitz.  Ah…That’s better!  There might be some bugs in our Fantasy Baseball War Room, just comment here and we’ll look into fixes.  The default projections are mine from the 2018 fantasy baseball rankings.  Also, Rudy’s projections are now up!  They can be found at my ranking page that I just linked to or here:  hitter projections and pitcher projections.  There, you’ll see rankings for every conceivable league (OBP, OPS, Holds, etc).  Anyway, here’s the step by step instructions on how to use the Fantasy Baseball War Room:

  • Sign up. If you get a message that says your email is already in the system and you don’t remember the password, just use a new email or a made-up email.  It doesn’t really matter.  It says to email us to retrieve your password, but I have to be honest, I’m not retrieving shizz.  Repeat, just make a New User and make up a fake email.  We’re not emailing you anyway.
  • Choose what kind of team you want to draft. How many catchers, outfielders, middle infielders, etc. ESPN and Yahoo are for position eligibility. It doesn’t mean you’re playing there. ESPN is 20 games started; Yahoo is 5 started and 10 games played. So that means ESPN and CBS are the same. Or wherever you play that uses 20 or 10 game eligibility.
  • Now as you draft players, click Draft next to their name. If a player is eligible at more than one position, drop down the menu to the position you want them at.  If you can’t find a player, search for them at the top.  As Jeff Francoeur would say, voila!  Or if you’re a Twins fan, Frank Voila!
  • Get as close to the Totals as you can.
  • Wanna start again? Delete the Team, by scrolling to the right of the player search at the top and a down arrow will appear. Click that, then click the pinwheel under ‘Taken” and delete team or sign out. We got pinwheels! Wanna throw your computer out the window from excitement?  Go for it!  For those that missed it in the first bullet point, if you forget your password, Create New User and make up a fake email.  Do not email me.
  • If you get this error page, then your shizz is broke and you need to buy a new computer.  But, if you don’t want to buy a new computer, you should clear your cookies and start again.  Likely what happened is you’re logged into the app still from an old version.  Less likely, you still have the same internet cache from last year and haven’t cleared your cookies once in 12 months.  I’m not judging, Cust kayin’.

Just emailed Jay the Tiers spreadsheet a min ago.

Had a few questions about some of the names in the top 500 vs. the rankings write-ups that you might want to check out before you post it. I tried to update some of the stuff you’ve updated after yesterday’s moves. And figure everyone using this sheet can just update as guys sign/get traded or whatever. Maybe I’ll update it in a few weeks with any changes you make. Catch up tomorrow about it.

Most of the functionality was there before except the key rankings section on the War Room tab, so with that fixed in my soon to be released 2018 version, it looks to be is okay for up to 25 now.

For those people browsing here on Saturday night, I’m excited about this year’s excel war room…**coming soon**

Last year I added live ranking based on custom league scoring…this is back again for 2018.

*New for 2018*: addressing some feature requests from last year, tonight I just added sort columns to rank hitters by projected OPB, SLG, and OPS. This should give an edge in those leagues.

All featuring data (translating to rankings) that is live-updated from the steamer data here on Razz…

Still need to update the dashboard tab, and fix formatting glitches that crop up every year with the annual updates, before Version 1 gets published. Stay tuned!

16 team dynasty. active rosters are max 28, prospect list max 7. roto. i won this last year but some draft picks (last year was 1st year) weren’t looking good at this point. we’ll do a prospect draft then later a regular online one which is really just preseason waivers. stats are a lot
hitters: 5×5 stuff minus AVG with these added: slugging, OBP, OPS, hits, total bases, steals %
pitchers: 5×5 stuff plus holds, K/BB, K/9 (can’t do K% in yahoo), QS, net saves. 1750 max innings.
roster:
C zunino (was streaming him and others for a while, ended on good chair if duck duck goose)
1B swiggy
2B jose ram (3B)
3B longo
SS semien
MI solarte party (2B/3B/SS)
CI r-zimm
LF mancini (1B)
CF kiermaier
RF mookie
OF jew don (RF)
OF brocktune (LF/RF)
util hanram
util d.travis
BN mcmahon (could be moved down of course), bader (same, we have 2 NA slots in addition to prospect list during season, but cannot add new players other than trades to prosepect lists, can send down guys though if they were called up earlier), mini donkey, d.fisher (LF/RF)
SP (5 starters with 1 P slot): wood, cueto, grin and lamet, hamels, morton, peacock, rodon the monster, mccarthy
RP (5 slots) kimbrel, knebel, rivero, neris, morrow, yates (hells yeah this had to be my best drafted RP league last year)

prospect list: i.diaz MIA, c.stewart, meadows, a.reyes (has to be called up very soon into season), k.lewis, collins, fedde

have to drop at least 4 guys from active roster. mcmahon/bader could be sent down. easy drops are yates (although i’d be all closer no holds guys, but that seems like an easy thing to trade out of), mini donkey, mccarthy, but who’s the 4th? only useful SP in FA for online draft would be maeda/richards, but i doubt with pick 16 (even if i drop somebody) i’d get either.

2. also (probably more for ralph only) i draft 16th in odd prospect rounds, 1st in evens; who’s best guys to drop from that (i’ll later find all the available names from your top 100 prospects)

@Grey: 2 is probably easily answered by listing who’s available in ralph’s top prospect 100 vs my guys. i’ll get around to that one. trying to trade from my list of closers (gotta be best bullpen in the league, for saves anyway) for some mix of SS/MI (whether prospect or active) or holds guys. possibly closer for holds guy + prospect draft grade pick upgrade.

@Mobin Can’t Hack It: imagine how much better that team would be if:
1. i took freeman over swiggy last year (damn over trusting current last year’s OPS rater over long term value)
2. stanton over cueto (SP run, already had a RF mookie, if i didn’t grab cueto there there was a huge dropoff for SP #1 by my next pick). clearly even with hamels falling off getting wood/morton/peacock was a big deal.

@Grey: of course IF i had gone stanton over cueto i would’ve have grabbed jd mart at his discounted price later, i certainly wouldn’t have needed 3 RF’ers. rather than cueto i probably would’ve had one of these as my ace SP last year exiting draft: carrasco or carmart (yikes that looks worse now, trusted the QS rater). also went cueto when strasburg was around (injury risk)

@Mobin Can’t Hack It: wait, i had that wrong, if i take stanton, then i go carrasco (i miss brocktune at that pick) but could’ve gotten b.hamilton where i got jd mart
so it’d be
1B freeman (not miggy)
OF stanton (not jd mart)
SP #1, carrasco or carmart (not cueto)
speed OF: b.hamilton (not brocktune)

ugggg, learning hurts.

Grey how much more if any would you put on drafting bats vs. SP’s in a 6×5 league? The extra cat is OPS and we count net wins vs. whip. 12 teams two at each position, 15 bats and 10 pitchers.
The SP’s have K’s and ERA but the wins and net wins are hard to figure, so it’s 6 cats for the hitters, 4 for SP’s and 1 basically for closers.
2. Are you coming out this week with your pairings post, the one where you draft a guy then take this guy with him?

My 2 cents. You need a 1bm so either Miggy or Smoak, throw one back and see what’s in your draft. You have a floor and upside outfielder already so depending on how you feel I wouldn’t take both Cain and Pollack, maybe one of them and Mazara and Conforto for their upside probably Mazara as Conforto is hurt, Salazar is already hurt, so go with Grey’s rankings for another SP, and Chapman if you want a closer. You will have a chance to get a couple of your guys back plus whoever other guys threw back.

Grey,

Do you see any value in doing a tier system all the way through the Top 100? I like how the top 20 are tiered, regardless of position. And I realize that the positions are all tiered, so I guess I could spit-ball the entire list based off of that.

Anyway, thanks for all the mustache.

The War Room looks awesome, but I’m afraid there are still a few bugs to work out. Tim Anderson is projected to outperform Tommy Pham, for example.

Grey, I need you…

Which three of the following would you keep…the number in parentheticals indicates the draft pick I’d have to give up to keep the dude (and K’s is a stat in this roto league):

Kris Bryant (3rd); George Springer (1st…and I have first overall pick); Aaron Judge (24th); Carlos Martinez (23rd); Wilson Contreras (5th); Marcell Ozuna (7th); Javier Baez (5th); Billy Hamilton (6th).

I’m personally thinking Kris Bryant, Aaron Judge and Carlos Martinez. I don’t mind Springer, but not for a 1st round pick. Personally. But thus why I’m asking the Man.

I wish I could get Treat Urner, though.

Need some help from our savior, Grey, Fantasy Master Lothario. 5×5 roto, keep up to 11 forever, supplemental draft after keepers declared in order of finish from previous season so everyone has 11 players, then we auction the leftovers. Finished 9th last year so can wait and see how many players and who the top 8 from last season keep if that impacts decision.

No brainers: Goldy, Arenado, Bregman, Schoop, B. Hamilton, Acuna, Bumgarner.

Keep K. Davis and / or Segura? Nobody else really to debate keeping

@Grey: Yeah, I’ve been wavering on both of them. The top couple teams will have to throw a couple quality players back, at least around the level of Segura and Davis, but the people behind me have some bad teams, so they can keep less than me anyways so I won’t get a chance to get those guys. Thanks!

Is that 2 solid closers and then SAGNOF in between streaming starters or am I carrying 3 closers and less SAGNOF. The points leagues I played in were hold leagues as well so closers weren’t as valuable anyway.

I guess just look for value from the rankings to ADP would be the simple answer?

Middle of a snow dynasty draft. Missed out at 3B, so will have to pick between Corey’s bro and Eugenio.

Never been a big Seager fan (who is) and it’s an OBP league where Suarez had a .45 lead on him last year, plus he’s 4 years younger and entering his prime. But is boring consistent Kyle still the better choice? Also count TB where Seager was a bit better last year admittedly.

Anybody care to take a stab at when they think ESPN will be up and running? The “maintenance” has hit two weeks now.

@Coors Canaveral: I recently heard on a Podcast that it will be on Tuesday. But that wasn’t confirmed and they didn’t say where they heard that.

@knucks: This one was a legit fact based response. I just don’t want to give the name of the Pod because they are not very good and its embarrassing that I listen to it. It wasn’t CBS/ESPN or anything, it was industry based and I think they may have been drafting in LABR or some draft like that. But when the guy said it, it was sounding like he was being serious or new about it.

I hope you still have someone who is doing the excel war room as I find this tool absolutely amazing. I did some of my own tweaking to it to add each lineup and batting order based on Roster Resource so at the end of the auction draft or snake you can quickly pick guys who are going to start or who are in the starting rotation.

@Sweatpants Nation: I have had some serious practice with patience the past 3 weeks during an NFBC draft. I mean jesus, pick between Sogard or Torreyes already!!!! My god. We finally got this one dood to go on Auto and now everyone else is taking their sweet azz time with their 5th Catchers. I dunno that I’ll do another one of these. Can’t wait to attack the RCL though for the first time.

OMFG war room is back already! This is literally the only thing I want to go into my drafts (lie: I use some other excel shizz I make up).

When do we get the Excel version? Is someone going to step up this year again?

@knucks: No I’m just watching you answer the question everyday, so I assumed you knew haha

If there is no one doing it, I can handle it. But it won’t be done until early March.

@Grey: I can prob work on that one, seems like it’ll take less effort. I’ll work on it over the weekend. I’ll try to have it out to Truss or Jay next week sometime.

@Grey: Fastest way will be Position Tabs in an Excel file with no stats. Any quibbles?

@knucks: Aight, so I’ve got the position tabs all set and listed by $ value. Just pulled the Grey’s rankings .csv from over on the Player Rater.

Finished the Catcher tab with the tiers in colors and with a hover over comment of the tier name. Will have this done a lot sooner than I thought. Back to “real” work for now. But it’ll be over to Jay/Truss by Sunday night.

@Grey: This was actually an entertaining read! All this talk about *.csv and formatting is….tantalizing. But that excel from last year was the sheet. Glad you guys are doing that again

@knucks: Knucks – can you please send me a copy too, as it might save some time for me as I do up the Dashboard tab for the excel war room (which uses tiers too)

So we just took our 14 team league to fantrax. What’s the deal with them not having a compare stats option on their trade page?
Has anyone else notice this? That belongs to fantrax

My league mates are kind of up in arms over it. Its a very trade heavy league and it makes it very hard.

Just trying to wrap my head around this

Just thought you’d like to know that I talked to FanTrax and they will be adding stats to the trade screen. Not sure if you’re on Twitter at all, but hitting them up with this feedback on Twitter or emailing them goes a long way. FanTrax is super responsive to feedback. I know it’s hard to get used to with years of dealing with ESPN and Y! feedback/IT departments but these guys want to make their product better for you. If there’s something you don’t like or a feature you don’t see, reach out to them.

@MattTruss:

I emailed them about it and I was told they hope to have it in the future. Wasnt really happy with that answer. Really open ended.

Site is cool and has some cool things, just thought a compare stats option for a trade page should be a very basic tool for every fantasy site.

Thanks for the feed back everyone.

I might email Fantrack to see if they can fix the slow car in the left lane issues.
