Figured this was as good a time as any to get the 2019 discussion thread up and running. Plenty of time yet before pitchers and catchers even report. But we'll get this up so people can post trade talks if need be, post keepers, ask questions, check in, all that good stuff.

The Dirty Dozen League Constitution
Entry Fee = $30 (Due by Opening Day) Fee paid to Great One, I believe he prefers paypal.

Each team will name 7 keepers. To be eligible, the player must appear on your roster on the last day of the prior season.

Keeper Deadline yet to be determined (GO and I need to talk) Draft start will be shortly after deadline.
Any trade or keeper change after that will not be accepted.

Next Day Transactions - Daily/Tomorrow
Waivers - Continual Rolling List

Payouts = $360
1st Place $245
2nd Place $ 75
3rd Place $ 30
Draftime $ 10*

Trade Review
Commish review, will push through in about 24 hours unless anyone raises any questions/concerns. Generally the next morning unless a trade was accepted the evening before.

I told you, if you want to see a player hurt, trade him to me. Since my trade with Wiggs, Piscotty and Mazara have spent most of the time day to day and now Story is on the DL and Strasburg has had his next start pushed back for unknown reasons.

Whether it is injuries or one's timing in picking up FAs, you need luck as much as skill to win in this league. It is a long season as evidenced by the recent shift in the standings.

My pitching has been ridiculously bad the last month or so with all my starters posting 5+ ERAs absent Castillo. Never would have thought an ERA could go from 3.2 to 4 so fast and I think whip has been even worse. my pitchers all have the talent to bounce back and show what they did early in the season but these categories need to improve to get back on top as I am right in the think of things.

If anyone has any pitching talent they are looking to deal shoot me an email.

Khahan-Would you please clarify for me the maximum number of games for position players. Is it 180, or was that number put there for another reason?

      ID: 80441414
      Thu, Jun 27, 2019, 15:27
We never had a max for position players that I remember. GO set the league up this year. It could just be the default Yahoo goes to. But I'm not sure 180 can actually even be exceeded, can it?

I recall a couple years ago there was a bug that made it seem we went over the max games even though there was no limit and stats wouldnít be counted so it was switched to the highest game limit of 180 which fixed that issue.

I you exceed 162 games at a position, will the stats be counted?
I do not believe that anyone wanted or would want that.

188 - yes, you can exceed 162 games. Dirty Dozen has never had a hard games played cap. Not since its inception.

Still looking to move a young hitter... Senzel? Riley? for a young arm comparable caliber.

I can even pair with Paddack who is good but will certainly be on innings limit etc. this year.

DaBomb-I like Kikť, but I finally let him go because he has been so bad this season. I liked his multi- position availability, but thought that even if he turned it around, he still would have trouble finding playing time the Dodger lineup.

I would be willing to trade Pete Alonso to a rebuilding team who is interested in acquiring a great young power hitter and would prefer to offer assets for this year than draft picks (or more likely a combination of both).

The offer would need to clearly improve my team for this year to entice me to trade a rookie ranked in the top 40 this year. I would be looking for a hitter to replace his production at 1b/OF (doesn't need as much power as DaBomb is pulling away, but RBIs Rs and SBs would be important) as well as upgrades elsewhere like catcher, either a closer or SP.

The price would be steep but for a team not competing this year but still with some solid talents this could be the chance to improve the keeper list heading into next season.

If I go into the offseason with Alonso he may still be on the block as I look to decide my last 2 keepers but the other players he would be competing against (Correa, Castillo, Merrifield, Clevinger) are too important to my team this year.

DaBomb-Great pick up of Mike Mikolas. If I had known he was available, I would have tried to get him. If he reverts back to last season, he will make a difference. If he does not or if 2018 was an outlier, nothing lost.

5/7 keepers
9/17 drafted players including 5 of my first 7 picks.

Throw in random long term replacements like Michael Chavis, Nomar Mazara, Stephen Piscotty, Brian Anderson, Chris Archer, Roenis Elias to round out my season. Its a wonder I'm not dead last. What a miserable season.

Losing this seasons top hitter as we had into the final few weeks of the season is not the news I wanted to wake up to. Luckily the majority of my close categories are on the pitching side but if anyone know any better RBI/SB combo players let me know.

Da bomb I would be curious what the stats on your streamed starters are. Seems you started the process vulnerable in both ratios and have moved those to almost untouchable as you have shot up the leaderboard in Ws and Ks. Should be an exciting last few days but I am not seeing too many paths to victory

The choice is whether to shoot for 4th place with the possibility, albeit small, of finishing in 3rd place, or settle for 5th place and a better draft position in 2020. Pride has won out over sensibility, and the Zephyrs will try to finish the season with a flourish. Goes against my grain to tank.
Frustrating season with injuries (losing Chris Sale was a killer) and suspensions, including players for PEDS and child porn, but injuries have hit most teams that are out of contention.
Good luck to Da Bomb and dpr down the stretch.

Well it's my 6th championship and 3rd in a row, and this one might be the most fulfilling. Dpr got off to a huge early lead, Astade looked strong in July, and then dpr surged back again and it felt like an uphill battle to try to compete with his horses in Yelich, Bellinger, Rendon, Bregman, and Alonso. Post 159 said it well but it was also some motivation! Then I thought his Clevinger add for Kyle Tucker had a good chance of sealing my fate. My keeper group going into the season was not the best when compared to dpr or even Khahan's, especially after losing Severino plus Votto being cooked, so I knew I had to manage my best everyday and win on the margins.

Re: 210, I built up a decent cushion in ERA and WHIP but with innings to make up for in Wins and Ks. As soon as I started streaming more aggressively those cushions completely evaporated, but thankfully I had 2-3 very good big SP streaming days over the past couple weeks which helped to stabilize. I also made substantive strides in steals in the second half. This was tricky as I still had goals of passing dpr in HR and RBI and potentially AVG, so I needed more of 5 tool type of players, so pickups such as Laureano and Pham along with a big second half from Villar, plus Ketel Marte who was an off-day fill-in pickup who turned into a keeper were all huge. I also owe thanks to Eugenio Suarez, Gleyber Torres, Yuli Gurriel, Charlie Blackmon, Liam Hendriks, Jake Odorizzi, Jacob deGrom and Charlie Morton.

Good luck to those who have teams in the playoffs.

Congrats Dabomb on the great managing down the stretch. Being in the race definitely added an extra level of interest in the games the last few weeks.

Does anyone know what happened to Wiggs? He didnt log in after the ASB. I think we need to think about how we can keep teams more engagd throughout the season. I know we added the draft fee penalty recently but it seems that interest is really waning in the league

Just wanted to get this out there for anyone thinking about making moves early in the offseason.

Let me know if you are looking to add keepers as I likely have 10 top ~50 talents. A couple of these would be available for draft picks but I am ideally looking for 2:1 even if I only get a small upgrade. The first few are pretty much only available if I am getting Trout/Acuna in return.

Has anyone heard from (or reached out) to Wiggs? He was MIA for the last couple months of the season so we should be looking at replacing unless a good reason is given.

Also see post 218 for anyone thinking of making trades and acquiring a keeper.
