Scheduling is too finicky. No matter what we eventually decide on we have no idea what players will get hurt, have great seasons, have easy matchups week to week. Not to mention what owners will do with their teams throughout the season. All we can do imo is schedule everyone once and then fill out the rest as best we can. We can try and extrapolate who will be good and who won't, but in the end we really have no idea.
I think there are too many variables to try to determine who will be good and who will not. On paper, many times, a team looks great, while when the wrong variables hit, they have a down year and the same can be said about teams that seem weak, when the variables go their way.
I like the way the schedule was this year. If some want to play teams in the division twice, that is fine with me, and you could rotate the schedule on an annual basis for playing other divisions. It can be figured out.

Hey Josh, I know what you said about changing the site, so I just was wondering is there anyway you can let us know what's available through Yahoo? I know you said you could make the schedule so we could at least play our division but not able to do multiple matchups, Now next year the season is starting March 29th, so do you know is that a 10 day week or Thurs to Sun 1 week? Also we had AllStar week off I think is there anything you can do there? I know some people don't like playing the last week but we did have that week. I'm basically just asking how much lee-way they give you.So there is a way to try and get the best and fairest schedule we can.

No I understand with the teams with won't be balanced, I was wondering what options Yahoo gives you so that we could try to get as close as we can to a balanced schedule. Or at least one where we are playing the teams within our division, maybe we do it like the pro's and play NL west vs AL west one year and then reverse it the next.

I understand that,and on a rotational basis it might be good, I am just basically wondering what options Yahoo has, I haven't been in one of their leagues in 17 years and when I ran the one before the options were different. So I was just wondering what they allow you to do.

Look not looking to give you a hard time, I was just wondering what they are offering, when I ran the league,pitching wise you was given a block of innings and let's it was 2000 then a week goes by and you used 40 innings you had 1960 for the remainder of the year,so I like that, that seems to have been eliminated. Anyway thanks for letting me know what you could and who knows 2018 they might change things anyway

Yeah I mean I have no way of knowing what Yahoo may or may not do. But I know one thing championship in fantasy baseball is important, and it doesn't need to be the last week because so many players are benched. All Star week needs to be combined because you don't want a 3 game series as an entire matchup, we have innings minimum to worry about.
Just a question because I don't know exactly but if we just did two conferences? Would it be tough to come up with a more balance schedule that way?
You'd still be faced with the same unbalance we've been discussing possible more. Divisions split into 2 would be either 9 division games, 10 out of division and 2 other random games. Or you have 18 division games (play each team twice) and 3 out of division games. So it's still awkward.

So it won't be perfectly balanced due to the last week and all-star weeks, but is it possible to try and get it as close to perfect. Look we have 10 teams that are NL & 10 AL maybe we play our league twice which would be 18 games then play the other league times.That is 18 games and then the other 3 against the other league maybe West vs West Then the following season play the teams we didn't

New York Mets: I think I only saw 1 poll were there others? Also when can we post off season discussion topics?
Oct 2, 2019 20:02:09 GMT -5
Oakland Athletics: CWS: See Rule 104 Which is located under minor league rules. NYM: Not sure what poll you are talking about, and Offseason discussion have begun, I would have liked to moved on from them already so we can enjoy our break season

Oakland Athletics: But I have been to busy lately so I just got rosters in order for next season.
Oct 4, 2019 23:22:17 GMT -5
New York Yankees: So from what I am reading if anyone has an offseason discussion topic we post it under offseason discussions?

Colorado Rockies: Offseason discussion seems so, I think I would recommend emailing also, as some owners have already begun hibernating

Colorado Rockies: I think OAK, the polls NYM is asking about are best trade, best gm those.
