Congrats, bro! I honestly can't tell you the last time I legit accomplished anything. Enjoy.
What have I missed? I've been inactive the past few days.
Jim Jones swirvin', I got that purple I'm blowed. Tight grip on that Escalade pole. Harlem just like Compton, that's just how I roll--red bandana wrapped around a chrome .44. Gun smokin' like Suge cigar. Show me how you stunt get thrown out of a movin' car. If them things come out, it's Murder, She Wrote. If Doc come out, it's 30 Impalas on a boat.
The only two that I drafted were Grilli and Holland, both in the closing rounds. Just picked up Ryan Madson and stashed him on my DL (for insurance with Frieri). Anyone bitching about closers being stashed is not being active enough no the waiver wire. Not to mention, if its a typical 5x5 league, you can pick up quality bullpen guys that will easily get every stat but saves (which some will get from time to time).
If the bottom feeders want to control the market on closers, then the more power to them....it simply means they're shit everywhere else.
Above all, don't panic and overpay for one of their closers if they attempt trade offers....as I said, you can pick up quality bullpen/set-up men that will give you everything else you need (i.e. Melancon, Crow, etc.).
I have no problem with it at all, as long as there wasn't specifications against it prior to the season/league starting. I'm a firm believer in leaving the league as is throughout the season and addressing concerns in the following season.
Closers are the most versatile position in fantasy baseball, as they're constantly changing (aside from your constants - Rivera, Kimbrel, Nathan, etc.). If you're active enough on the waiver wire, you can easily pick up saves. For example, my bullpen looks like this in one of my leagues....
I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy.
holy shit. to think those guys ever hated each other.
Let's see, 2003. Only time the Sharks have missed the playoffs in the last 15 years. Mavs WCF run (Dirk averages 25 and 12, is still a choke artist who sucks in the playoffs.) A's win the West but lose in five in the LDS for the 4th straight year (ugh.) 49ers hire Dennis Erickson, eight years of misery ensues. I'll give it a C+.
We're trying! It's just that every year in the 2nd round Patrick Marleau's line forgets what hockey is and the opposing goaltender morphs into Patrick Roy.
seriously though, tell the guys in your league that i said they were whiny pussies.
