@George,
Thanks, George.

I had a slot open on my pitching staff from the completion of the draft. I was con-flabber-gasted that I couldn't understand how to fill that slot with a P of some sort for 3 days. Maybe losing my glasses was the problem?

In the case of Nicasio, Pitcher, it was wishful thinking on my part, as he pitched on April 5th and had an excellent outing---err..ahh... inning.

I mistakenly thought I ditched the red-hot RS,Holt. The one who I' d ditched was Travis Shaw, RS - not nearly as bad.

Nuts! I apparently just missed getting Cervelli in place. He went 3/3..
Oh, well, maybe Vogt will still do something swell.

Grrr at myself. I went to my roster and two players, Vogt and Holt had x's.
Your roster couldn't be saved in red letters, and I had to close down again, click on the thread icon again, even after putting the x'd guys back. That was 45 minutes before the first games start... but close.

I'm going to have to start checking earlier.

@realjohnboy,
I'm glad it wasn't worse than 9-6 for the running shepherds. Good work, fancypants.

Oops - I just looked, and it says 7-7; will have to investigate.
Did investigate and it seems true. Yay!

I'm staring at what happens with Felix.. what a pitcher! What a team lack of support. Or, so I remember, from the last time he was one of my pitchers, and it seems so now too. A little soon to tell, I suppose.

Question of strategy: how do you use 'Swap the Inactive Players' function? For the life of me, I don't know when to use it or what it does (rather than doing it ...manually)?

How do you manage batters/players who get benched or removed at the last minute... the dreaded X. When and how do you watch and work with it? Do you mark down each game-time and check 15-30 mins before or what is the time you check that is useful?

Also another strategy issue: when a game-day player's game is PPD, shouldn't you be allowed to fill that missing position that player would have been filling?
Trying to figure out that one.

I'm losing slots due to stuff beyond my control or understanding of Fantasy baseball.

@Ragman,

function? For the life of me, I don't know when to use it or what it does
(rather than doing it ...manually)?


I don't use it. It will swap in active players from your bench to fill the
slots of inactive players if it can. But it will not necessarily make the
smart move. Looking at your roster, you might want to move a player
out of a UTIL position to fill the slot and the fill the UTIL position with
the best player on your bench.

How do you manage batters/players who get benched or removed at the
last minute... the dreaded X. When and how do you watch and work with
it? Do you mark down each game-time and check 15-30 mins before or
what is the time you check that is useful?


That's probably the best thing to do and it's the thing I always say I'm
going to do. But I always get there too late.

Also another strategy issue: when a game-day player's game is PPD,
shouldn't you be allowed to fill that missing position that player would
have been filling?


I don't know. I've never tried to do that.

You can, so long as you switch the players before the game is locked. Often, however, it seems like it doesn't turn PPD until right about the time it locks.

@fbaezer,
We didn't examine the categories well before the season started.
Hence, the pitching settings are awful.

@ossobuco,
When I wrote that post I was fully expecting you would win - and surprised when you didn't, seemingly at the last minute.

Thank you Yahoo fantasysports ... for taking whatever slight little change I made on a totally different day, and deciding to make wholesale changes to the starting lineup I had already set. This is really irritating. I set my lineup at the start of the week. I have 4 SP's going on Saturday, and I move them into my starting lineup for the day. I then ASSUME those changes will still be there come Saturday, only to find out today that three of the four pitchers were sitting on my bench yesterday! That cost me 2-3 categories.

And, of course (and par FOR the course this year for me), the three on the bench played well ("twirled a gem," "continued his domination," and "pitched well"), while the one in the starting lineup played not so well ("couldn't go more than five innings").

I think Yahoo might do this ^^ if you set your lineup, and then later on make a roster change (i.e., pick up a player from Waivers or Free Agency). So if you pick up a new player, Yahoo decides to completely wreck your future lineups that involved a player no longer on your roster? Really ridiculous bug in the software.

@Ticomaya,
I think you are right, that after you picked up a waiver they don't (or might not?) keep your previously worked out order. I remember that from a few years ago, not lately, but it rings a definite bell re some past experiences.

I'm jealous that Pancho, my foe this week (Hi, Pancho!), has my favorite pitcher, Arrieta. I had him last year, soooo good. I like Johnny Cueto a lot too, whoever has him, seems a neat guy.. however his pitching works out in a given game, he's fun to watch/read about.

Last week both my whole team and I myself seemed to go on vacation. Hoping for better this week.
