    Is there a way to make a bid be $0 or zero? If you are increasing the number of transactions then that would still allow for strategy with your budget and allow for people to still make moves even when out of money. We do that in a football league. You get to scrape the bottom of the barrel but at least you get a replacement if someone is hurt and you have no backup.

    That is definitely an option. That too, would have to go up for vote.

    That would make things better IMO. You want the best free agents, spend. You want to roll the dice on some scrubs, you can with a zero bid.

    No controversy here, just questions

    Btw Scott, you're doing a great job with this, and not too many polls at all

    I'm just not too familiar with chatting on the phone app for espn and I'm hardly ever at my PC

    I'm fine with a change, I just wanna make sure it's what we all want

    I've been spending based on the fact that this isn't a weekend grab league, but I can adapt

    I guess the question is, do we want an "everyday FA pickup" league?

    A "Sunday thru Wednesday" pickup?

    Or leave it as is?

    I'm ok with any, but that everyday is a bit more work

    You make a good point that I really didn't think of. I'm in leagues where there is no SP limit and all of a sudden, they have 6 pitchers going on sunday. I'm not a fan of that either.

    Fuck streaming and I wouldn't do that even if I had all of my money. I always have a transaction limit in my leagues....is there an option to limit the number of transactions per week? ESPN is still new to me. I hate having to wait but I also am fine if someone spends all of their money in half of the year.

    The older I get, the more difficult it is to shit. It's very sad.

    The older I get the more I think I'm going to shit my pants.
    Speaking of shitting your pants, you could not have enjoyed your castoff Michael Brantley putting up big numbers against you this week...he was my best player!
    That said I had some real pitching eggs down the stretch, luckily I had built a big lead.
    Good match-up, round 1 of the Asshole Bowl goes to me. ;)

    Fuckin guy was a day to day and didn't play like 4 times in a 2 week span. I finally said fuck him. I did have him in draftkings on one of his big days and I made some cash so it worked out. I still have to get used to this season long thing. I can't just drop people that piss me off :lol:

    The point difference in this league as opposed to one of my other leagues is nuts. Nelson cruz has given me 124 points so far this year in this league. In the other league, he's given me 230 points. Huge difference in strategy.

    If anyone knows someone that wants to join the league and take over a team, let me know. One guy is dropping out.

    I haven't had a pitcher go on Monday yet. I'm constantly down 40 pts right off the bat.

    Maybe we can have an Asshole Triumvirate if he chose to name his team as empty and I did.

    I made another bone head move and was trying to push the wrong guy out of the league!! Sorry Joey!

    Anyway, we still have one guy that still wants to back out. I'm waiting for final verification now. If he decides to stay, all the better. But if he does back out, we need to find an owner for the Brooklyn team. If we can't find a replacement here, would you guys mind if I brought an outside guy in to run the team?

    Brooklyn is paying the agreed upon league fee though right? No issues with replacing but it is f'd up if someone bails after starting 0-4 and doesn't pay.
