Doesnt look like Javy has 2b elgibility

$75 Javier Báez SS/3B CHC


Good catch. sweetpeteman - you'll have to edit your lineup accordingly.



I made some changes. In my haste to make sure I don't lose due to BS again this year, I misread his positions. Actually was surprised to see he didn't play 2b at all last year.

That being said, I don't think he qualifies at 3b either though. According to your rules a player needs 7 games and 63.0 innings. Javy only played 1 game and 9 innings last year.

Another good catch. I would say I don't know how that slipped past me, but looking at stats every day gets tedious. My fault. It's corrected on the Wiki page.

I will sign up. Figured I would wait a couple more weeks though. Some bigger unknown injuries like Stanton and Judge.

Obviously . . . next week's deadline is irrelevant now. I will re-visit posting a new deadline, once MLB updates the start of the season. Stay safe, everyone!

Or, conversely, the two of us who actually entered get to be co-champions

So here is what I am thinking ... and it's not up for debate, because it's also helping my sanity during WFH/Quarantine.

I was sold on the grand commercial that was the MLB Dream Bracket, and I purchased OOTP 21. What I am going to do, to hopefully entertain the HR Derby and NSBB Community, is to simulate the 2020 Cubs season. I'm posting the daily results within a WordPress blog. I'm working on getting that online, and when I have a good chunk ready to share, I will post the link here. I'm hoping to have it coded and ready to publish by the end of the week.

Okay - so now that we will have some semblance of baseball this year, do we want to play HR Derby for a 60-game season, or should we just scrap it for this year and blame 2020?

I have decided to scrap the HR Derby for the 2020 MLB Season.
We will try it again in 2021.

My apologies to those who were looking forward to playing this year.
