    2033 season discussion

    So ive been thinking about it since Crimson left and the drafts have been weak turnouts, unless someone else wants to step up as commish i'm going to do away with the LIVE draft. Another part of my decision making at this point is the guys who I played with here in the past are in KNIGHTS of the CSBL which looks like it will close its doors soon. There is no guarantee they'll come back but the live draft was a big reason they left alongside my bullish thoughts on the league needing to change. We currently have 6 openings and i'd like to limit that. No poll on this one, its either someone else steps in or we try to survive by taking a step back.

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Re: KBL Change

    MASSIVE PSFA crop. i'm putting a pause on the league while I do a little recruiting, this might be a great time to bring in some new blood. I'm sure some of you wont like this but if the same teams keep gobbling up these great players the league will always stay unbalanced.

    I got no response about previous owners coming back so I'll put a hold on the LIVE draft discussion until things get sorted out. As much as i'd love to get in on the new crop, i'll abstain so no one thinks i'm pausing for more time myself.

    Best of luck with the bidding frenzy.

    Wow, that is a talented crop of new PSFA guys!

    Good luck recruiting, it'd be nice to have a full league again.

    Re: 2033 season discussion

    so the thread has been changed to this seasons post. recruiting hasnt been great but weve added 1 new and 1 former owner back to the fold. Disregard the post about going back to an Auto draft, i'll keep plugging away and running it hoping for better results.

    If anyone has other players that theyre in other leagues with please try to get them to take a team in KBL. DaveW is a classic example, he has stepped up and gotten into most of the leagues that I'm in ( so thanks for that).

    For all the guys that have been around a while you know its a solid league but we just need a few more quality owners.

    I'd help recruit, but this is the only team I own / league I'm in.
    I've tried managing multiple teams a couple times, but I end up getting confused/bored and find I enjoy it more when I can focus on one team.

    That's awesome you were able to fill a couple of our vacancies.

    It just proves that I'm a glutton for punishment

    Thanks for having me.

    If you miss out on the PSFAs make me an offer for one of these hitters:

    Felix Anthony, 1B

    Alexander Brecht, RF
    https://www.csfbl.com/player/view.asp?playerid=4578066

    Maine can use picks or a pitcher.

    will the PSFAs make winners out of their new teams? Only time will tell but the addition of some new owners has created some preseason activity in KBL.

    OKC grabs Kenneth Perry and it only took 1.4M over asking price. Although I dont have full scouting he looks to have a deadly combination of Power & Control with just enough SY to be a really tough starter. Fully developed and should be pretty good for the dragons for a few years to come.

    Patrick Tabor looks destined to be a DH but should instantly rise to the top of HR charts, It only took a little over a Mil O/A to nab him. He'll help the newly owned Detroit team get straightened out.

    Gerald June is the defensive specialist in the crop and will be a perennial GG for another new owner(Great Lakes), his combination of speed, range, glove, & arm will be amazing. I also wouldnt be surprised if he popped 20 HRs per season. He's a cornerstone type I love to have in LF. Not many challengers for this guy (scratching my head) and he went for asking price. Nice pick up Dave

    Mike Tai goes to RJ's new Flyers team, he seems to be the most coveted in the draft. He's a guy who should be at the top of the order, will get on base, hit for decent average, a bit of power will get to everything in CF even if he boots a few balls. Tai got a nice payday 3M+ O/A.

    Randy Murphy also went to OKC, he doesnt seem to have much of a bat and looks to be average to below in stopping the running game with his 60's AR but still recieved 700K O/A

    And Steven Colon's high DI wasnt enough to earn him a spot on a team as of yet, as a defensive liability might be hard for teams to shell out 1.5M

    Looking forward to the new season and some new owners making things interesting and competitive.

    My Seattle Mariners weren't in a place cash-wise to join in on the PSFA lottery this year and we're a bit scared with OKC picking up Perry.
    We'll be counting on our core of young bats again this season.
    Stalter and Buchanan have been a great 2 and 3.
    James Johnston set the single season record for runs last season with 157 and is looking to see if he can improve on that number this year.
    Andrew Allen is now 38, but is hoping to reach career 1,600 runs and 1,900 RBI's this season.

    Pitching, will be fine, solid if my guys can be consistent.
    When they're on, Butler, Dicus, Mercado, Fox, and last year's surprise Smith can all be stellar.
    Edwin Figueroa impressed last season as our rookie closer, we'll look for him to grow in confidence and resolve this season.

    Good luck to all in the upcoming season!

    He goes 2-4 w/ 2B & RBI in debut
