Thread: Jackie Robinson!

    Jackie Robinson!

    I will confess that I haven't been paying too close attention to the standings as my team is butt and in the midst of a complete overhaul. I was pondering putting a couple of players in their 30's up for trade as they don't fit my timeline for being competitive. Lo and behold, I am a mere 4.0 GB from 1st place despite being 16 games under .500. Should I start buying instead in an effort to make the playoffs with what would certainly be the worst team in CSFBL to do so?

    Good thing because this is the worst league I have ever seen for trading for older players. Basically anyone over 27 is treated like they have malaria.

    I don't know about that. I just traded for a 30 yr old pitcher and tried to trade for a 34 yr old, but the offer was declined.

    Lucky you. I am now zero for 14 in trade offers being accepted.

    Sounds like someone is making crap offers.

    Some definitely were. Just fishing type of trades, but asking for second roun picks for 28 yr olds seems reasonable but to each their own. The one negative I have taken from 11 years playing this game is too many people play it exactly the same way.

    I don't mind receiving crap offers, but I'd prefer to get them via PM so I can explain my rationale and maybe work something out before a formal offer is made. But, you're correct. I'm not aware of any innovative Moneyball strategy going on unless the league rules have been seriously tweaked beyond the standard CSFBL package.
