I figured ESPN would have a feature that would block a probable pitcher if that would exceed their weekly limit.

On that note what if that was the case that they exceeded their limit. Let's say this for example, they have two pitchers going and say they 'accidently' start two pitchers putting them over the weekly limit by one start. How do you determine which start to accept?

My thinking is you could say you 'accidental' if true or not start two to essentially take the better of the two scores? Loophole?

It does allow that, unfortunately

When someone goes over the limit, I'll remove starts in order of latest game start until they are no longer over the limit. Say there were 2 extra starts used, and 3 starts on Sunday at 1:00, 5:00, and 7:00. The 7:00 and 5:00 starts would be removed in that order, and then they would no longer be over the limit

Happy Bumgarner day! Really looking forward to finally having him back

I have a glut of 3Bs available. Probably looking to hang on to Ramirez, but looking to trade one of my others. Probably would take the best pitcher I get offered, doesn't have to be a stud

Another CG for Berrios, 38.5 points. Dude is a stud. Really thought he was going to make it interesting with a PG/NH for awhile there, he was flat out dominating and in complete control of that game until the 6th where it got iffy, then he finished it out by retiring the last 10 batters in a row. Awesome stuff

Fun fact, I have 3 different players named Jose on my team, as well as 2 named Joe. A ton of "M" names too- Mitch x2, Matt x2, Michael x2, Marwin, Miguel, Max, Madison

Also still looking to make some moves. Kela available for a team in need of a nice closer. Also looking to move a few bats

I might be interested in Kela, depending on the cost. Look it over, shoot me some ideas.



Huge statement win for my team this week too, knocking off the undefeated Moose. This ragtag team I have might really be on to something. Those last two trades also have helped, adding Folty and Godley to the rotation.

I'm just hoping I get enough of my pitching staff back before it's too late for a playoff run. Great season so far guys -- love seeing some parity in this league. Funny how both divisions have almost exactly the same records except for 1 win/1 loss at the top and bottom.

You definitely earned that win last week, as it was not an off week for my team as I still finished 2nd in points. A 2 start week from Scherzer and Paxton did not do me any favors and that was something I was not looking forward to last week.

The biggest boost for my team might actually be Whit Merrifield's OF eligibility. My OF really hasn't been very good and I had depth in the IF.

Now I can start Ozuna, Whit and Nimmo in the OF, still have Adam Jones too.

Is every pitcher in the MLB made of glass?

I will always have to live with myself wondering how my team could have been if I hadn't traded a package headlining Betts and Schwarber for a package headlining Buxton as my first transaction in this league

There's essentially 8 teams fighting for 6 playoff spots. Should be fun to see how it plays out.

It's Saturday. My team has a grand total of 1 homer this week. My team is winning.

I'm willing to bet that has never happened in this league before.

I couldn’t have possibly gotten anything less out of my pitching staff this week.

Lmao. Had a chance for a big upset, and in true fashion of my team, my starters #@#@#@#@ the bed. Oh well, really wouldn't have made a difference either way, but would have been fun

I thought I was dead to rights honestly.

Deserved a loss last week, pitiful performances all around
