OTM Fantasy Baseball Offseason Thread

The last post is pushing 800 comments so I'll start a new one that takes a shorter time to load.

Links to our three OTM keeper leagues are:

OTM #1 (Wakefield): http://games.espn.go.com/flb/leagueoffice?leagueId=17748

OTM #2 (Varitek): http://games.espn.go.com/flb/leagueoffice?leagueId=18989

OTM #3 (Drew): http://games.espn.go.com/flb/leagueoffice?leagueId=159993

What else...some trades have been made in fantasy, Justin Upton was just traded in real life to the Braves along with his teammate Chris Johnson for Martin Prado, Randall Delgado, Nick Ahmed, Zeke Spruill, and Brandon Drury.

Also in OTM 1 a consensus has, I believe, been reached for a single division that will send 8 teams to the playoffs, and thus eliminate bye weeks for the top two players.

There is also an ongoing debate about whether the winner of the consolation round should receive the number one overall pick for keeper rounds and the number one draft spot in the ensuing snake draft. There may not be a perfect solution to this issue, both Aloha and others have argued persuasively for different outcomes.

BobZupcic has also done some great work in creating spreadsheets of Bill James's projections for next year's pitchers and hitters, along with their past results, all in our scoring format. He has generously made that available to the league, located here:

Thanks BZ!

Pitchers and catchers report soon!
