  • 5x5 draft-and-hold with weekly transactions is probably my preference. But, really, whatever works for everybody else is fine with me: 5x5, points, bizarro 9x9 combinations, 45-player active rosters with a 10-relief-pitcher requirement and six catchers, whatevs, as long as we do it in a reasonable slow-draft format like the one we just finished, so that I can pay attention to work when I need to and draft when I get a chance.

    Whatever the format I will crush you all, see you driven before me, and hear the lamentations of your women.

    (Or maybe I'll end up nailed to a tree in a desert, now that I think about what happens to Conan after he says that. In the year 2020 I shouldn't discount the downside scenario.)

      • What OT's best friend said, minus the "I will crush you" part.

          He's not just my friend. HE'S MY BEST FRIEND!
          What's the rumpus?

          • I humbly suggest that, in a day or two, after we have all PMd circle, that (a) he start a new thread in the Unclassified Ads forum to fill out any unclaimed spots, and (b) he, or someone else, start a new league thread in the Straight Drafting forum so we have a place to post irrelevant observations, complaints, and discussions of whether "best friend" is a title or a tier.

              But it was fun, and in fact, it was the most enjoyable draft I've ever had. So ask me in a few days!

              You're gonna play, OT. You're gonna play, OT. ......................

                • In lieu of drafting yet another league, might I suggest we all fly over to jolly Ole' England and enter into this must-see, bucket list event:

                  We can all submit two names who we'd most like to give a "head start nudge" to, in order to let them get the lay of the land, so to speak. Thoughts?

                  • I vote that we 'nudge' OT on the flight over

                      2019 game 7 had 23+ million viewers

                      Last years day one of the draft did 11 million

                      15.6 Million across the 3 networks - ABC, ESPN, and NFL Network

                      up 37%

                      Last year 11.1 Million

                      Last night was a record by the way. So id say everyone is very happy

                      • I'm up for another draft - 5X5 works for me if Fantrax can only do points.
                        Keeper league: 12 team mixed keeper 5X5 (R,HR,RBI,SB,OBP X QS,SV+HLD,ERA, WHIP, K/BB) - turn-based auction draft $260 budget
                        H2H league: 12 team mixed redraft 5X5 (R,HR,RBI,SB,OBP X W,SV+H, ERA, WHIP, K/9) - weekly category totals, not points

                          • Yes it does Rich

                            Just like rounds 2 and 3 averaged 8.2 million viewers across ABC, ESPN, NFL NETWORK, ESPN Deportes, & Digital.

                            That's up 40% from 2019
