Why Check Your Rosters?

I've manually entered in 1824 players since ATB started about a decade ago. If my rudimentary math is correct, this works out to be approximately 74,000 cells of data entry and over 180,000 key strokes.

I just bring this up to point out that I undoubtedly made errors along the way. Richard found a big one today with Lefty Grove - he pitched 288 innings in 1931 and I created him in the system with only 188 IP.

Please take a moment to scan your roster for at least some gross errors on my part.

Justin found another yesterday where I logged Dave Bancroft's error rate as over 150 instead of around 80.

Thanks!

80 HR in the making?

Glad I am not a lefty pitcher in the Greenhorn division. Here are some HR park factors of those stadiums chosen already:

138 - Wrigley Field
160 - Forbes Fields
250 - Baker Bowl
322 - Polo Grounds

Oh, who happens to reside in the Greenhorn division? Mike T's Mark McGwire who's home park is of course, the aforementioned Polo Grounds. Last year in ATB XI McGwire hit 51 home runs while playing in a park that suppressed home runs for righties by 16% (84 HR PF) and in a league that suppressed home runs for righties by 23% (77 HR PF).

80 HR anyone?

Over in Mossback, the league is shaping up to be a triples division with 4 of the 6 parks selected heavily favoring the most exciting play in baseball. This can't but help Brad P's squad who drafted the three most prolific triples guys in the division:

28 - Jimmy Williams
27 - Sam Thompson
21 - Frank Baker

Day 5 Results

Posted here and here.

If you have Tommie Agee on your squad its because you have a skipped pick. Once you make your selection, I will remove Agee. Skips prevent me from moving forward with the draft, so this is the temporary work around to keep things moving on my end.

Day 2 Results

Are now online in the league reports and Roster Grid

Monday, April 19, 2010

Online Roster Grid

I will try to update this at least once per day. Can be accessed via the ATB Home page or via this link.

Great First Day!!!

Thanks everyone for a top notch first day. Went extremely well and nobody backed out on the season!

The League Reports section of the home page is now operational. Use it to double check your rosters, player stats, and player ratings.

Reminder on our rules

1) You can change the year of a selection 1 time and 1 time only
2) I manually put these stats in and therefore they may have a data entry error. Once the season starts, all stats are final. If you notice errors prior to the season, I urge you to let me know so I can update accordingly.

1st Trade of the Season!

The Otherton Fish Biscuits (Brian B) send their 10th (230th overall) and 12th (278th) round picks to Helena Handbasket (Joe T) in return for their 8th (186th) and 18th picks (426th).

For fun and to give a general idea of the quality of players we're talking about, last season, this would have resulted in a swap of:

230th - 2004 Ben Sheets (192 IP, 4.13 ERA)
278th - 1988 Jose Canseco (178 AB, .659 OPS)

for

186th - 1982 Robin Yount (298 AB, .658 OPS, Vg SS)
426th - 2008 Joakim Soria (42 IP, 4.54 ERA)
