i was thinking about that earlier too, but it would be such a pain in the ass to have to go to two sites to make transactions, roster moves, trades, etc.
yeah. i am asking about the free agents and what kind of live scoring they have.

Hey Scott,

Free agents can be grabbed through the Fantasy Leaders button on the FanGraphs toolbar. You should check that out:
http://www.fangraphs.com/fantasylead...h=0&ft=0&fl=40


Live scoring will just occur on the lineups page, and right now it requires a page refresh, though in the near future it will be just javascript running in the background.


Hope that helps!

Here's an updated spreadsheet totaling how much money each team has spent and how many slots they have left to fill. I figured I'd let you all do the math yourselves as to not help anyone out more than I should.

That's awesome. Thanks for that.

I actually like my team so far, outside of wasting $17 on Reynolds

II. THE AUCTION
  1. a. All owners will complete their rosters at the annual player auction to be conducted at the discretion of the league members and commissioner.
    b. Each owner receives $400 in auction money to fill his or her roster, including money spent on players retained from the previous season.
    c. Players are nominated by owners, using the previous season's reverse order of finish to determine the nomination order.
    d. Each owner must conclude the auction capable of filling out a starting lineup.
    e. Each owner can leave the auction at any time after fulfilling the requirement in line d. above. Once all 12 owners have left the auction, the auction is complete.
    f. Each owner must nominate a player in turn.
    g. You may not make any trades during the draft. Trade discussion is acceptable, however no trades can be processed or acted upon from the time the first player goes on auction until teams involved in the trade both have full rosters as defined above.




    as for why i'd rather wait to even discuss trades is basically just that i'd rather everything be in place and everything before i sort all that stuff out. just for my own sanity, plus with the way some people are already very close to going over their cap it might get messy.


    i'm getting so psyched about the second round of this draft, i wish it was tonight. it think it will go A LOT differently now that we all kind of know what's going on better.

that's lame. this is a perfect time to trade IMO. re-set your strategy for the 2nd part of the draft.

Doesn't mean we don't start discussing trades.

Should we propose trade offers in PMs and then put our proposals in the thread for Commish approval?

Corey's team is so homerful. Yanks and Phillies everywhere haha

homerful as in having 3 players from my favorite and 2 from a team i know a lot about? or homerful as in having a-rod cabrera and utley who are home run hitting threats?

i was in a shitty situation - i was extremely unprepared, kept timing out and lost internet connection all night. the problems i was having are most definitely fixed (changed ISP's today) and i still have some ideas on how to round out my team.
