Re: Fair or Not Fair Lineup manipulation.

Going off of your math pal. So maybe you should check it lol. You clearly aren't going off my math, bro. And yes if you have 0 hits, 0 hr, 0 average for your catcher position you get...wait for it. Nothing. The bench player HAS to be in the lineup for their stats to count. So if this extra bench pl...

Re: Fair or Not Fair Lineup manipulation.

All of those catchers had similar if not better stats than the bench player you are upset about.
They do?

How do you know?

Do you know the available bench players in the league?

If not, you are just making wild assumptions to fit your bias.

Re: Fair or Not Fair Lineup manipulation.

Even if your bench player gave you the same number as a catcher over the course of the year for filling in on off days for other players. YOU ARE STILL LOOSING ALL COUNTING STATS FOR THE CATCHER SPOT. Complete logic fail in that comment. The extra bench player ADDS numbers filling in on off days fo...

Re: Fair or Not Fair Lineup manipulation.

And quite frankly it's a disadvantage to not start a catcher. Wrong. Not when you gain an extra bench spot that can be used to fill in the short schedule days and provide you overall better numbers. I have provided the math and it is undeniable. Now if you didn't start a catcher and were left with ...

Re: Fair or Not Fair Lineup manipulation.

Yep this is not a generic fantasy baseball question, it's a league specific one. I would venture to guess that 99% of leagues do NOT force managers to have EVERY position filled. I've played fantasy baseball for 30 years and never heard a league that didn't require all positions filled and certainl...

Re: Fair or Not Fair Lineup manipulation.

And these "lost numbers" you speak of...you can't make up these numbers with a guy sitting on the bench. That means you can only make up these numbers on short schedule days, basically on Mondays and Thursdays when your regulars might have a day off. A guy sitting on your bench is not contributing ...

Re: Fair or Not Fair Lineup manipulation.

The game is to accumulate the best/most roto stats for your team.
While fielding a team that resembles a real baseball team including all positions.

Re: Fair or Not Fair Lineup manipulation.

Actually I did provide the math on how little a low end catcher provides per week. It was in the original post. I will also provide the math that the average catcher BA last year was .242 as compared to the major league average of .250, which includes pitchers. I will also provide you the math that ...

Re: Fair or Not Fair Lineup manipulation.

So if it's not the game to just start 13 hitters from any position, why would it be the game to not start a catcher and have an extra bench spot?

Here we go again having to ask a question 25 times before getting a vague response.

Re: Fair or Not Fair Lineup manipulation.

And Wellington Castillo is currently the 5th ranked catcher in MLB according to ESPN rankings. Not quite the low level starting fantasy catcher I used in the example and the math used to correctly point out the advantage. Still apples to 747 jumbo jets. And they are doing exactly that with the extra...
