    Ohtani played RF after being lifted as a pitcher. The new (and each subsequent) pitcher took Taylor Ward's spot in the order as Ward was removed from the game.

    This has been expected for a couple of weeks and really has no bearing on Sanchez's 2021 expectations. He's being capped, so it's just a matter of when he pitches, he's not losing any actual playing...

    Prices/earning should be scaled over replacement. With so many multi-eligibility players in today's inventory, replacement is essentially the same for everyone but catcher. As such, the price/earning...

    In my view, it's not real because the inputs are not reflective of the real scenario. Call it an artifact of my previous life as a scientist in biotech.

    In short, you're basing conclusions on an erroneous set of inputs, specifically the inclusion of projected stats not earmarked for the final stat pool at the end of the season.

    All I can do is explain how I do it - everyone is wired differently so it may not be useful.

    Yes, I do. In fact, my personal approach in such leagues is not paying for the elite and instead focusing on the elite bats. My general plan is having a plethora of dominant middle relievers active...

    I missed the part where you were called stupid. You're asking a tool designed for one thing to do another. Further, there isn't a practical workaround.

    It's the proper conclusion, but there is no manner to account for it. This is the sticking point. With so much of the industry playing daily leagues, trust me, if it were practical, I'd be all over...

    Urshela was the 82nd nomination so it wasn't a matter of timing. I have at $16 so $14 isn't too far off.
