Excellent job on the draft fellow owners. I will send out the summary tomorrow morning.

Just a few thoughts…..

For the three mandatory players, you don't have to add via waivers but must have them on your roster before the start of the season

The three players must meet their minimum plate appearances or innings pitched/starts. Once achieved, the players do not have to continue playing but they must remain on your roster.

Assigned players cannot be traded.

Good luck to all sabotaging your division mate rosters.

Saboteurs R Us league-Sabotage or Gift-? Update through game

PostFri Jul 29, 2022 4:29 pm

For those interested in how the sabotage or gift league has progressed thus far, here is an update.

League--27 games completed
All but 1 team is within 4 games of the division lead
Largest division lead---3 games---other two division leaders have a 1 game lead

East: Generationm1's Premeditated Resentment leads the East by 1 game over LM Bombers' Louisville Bats. Resentment is riding the arms of Jake Peavy (5-0) and Matt Belisle (!!) who is 4-0.

Central: DSZCYPKA's One For Pops has a three game lead on Spider67's Hickory Taverns. Derek Lowe (5-0) and Manny Ramirez (.344/448/.823) are early stars for Pops.

West: The BC Manager's Sooke Super Spreaders have a one game lead over Franky35's Easy Money. The Spreaders have been propelled by Kevin Millwood (3-0) and Pedro Astacio (assigned--likely a gift) who is also 3-0. Josh Hamilton is hitting .413/.482/.696 and Jose Valentin is at .366/.386/.610. Josh has already missed 14 games due to injury.

Interesting player moves---

Hitters

Barry Bonds was injured in the first game and was released. Injury revealed it was the 2000 Barry Bonds---a 6R year. Barry remains a free agent. Other high priced players who were released---Ichiro Suzuki, Sammy Sosa and Brian Roberts have all been released after less than stellar starts.

Pitchers
Curt Schilling, CC Sabathia, Dan Haren, Rich Harden, Greg Maddux and Mark Mulder have all been released by their owners.

Here's an early assessment of each teams assigned players. Each player is rated as a gift "G" (outperformed expected result) or sabotage "S" (performed at or below expected result). Interesting data points included as appropriate

Louisville Bats (13-14): Mike Maroth (S--ERA of 8.44, 1.46) Roger Cedeno (S--already missed 20 games due to injury--hitting .211/.348/.263)) Carlos Silva (S) (5.34/1.50)

For Pops (17-10 (Best in league) Dave Burba (S--ERA 6.07 WHIP 1.88 BUT 2-0) Jack Cust (S--.191/.350/.397) Ruben Sierra
(borderline S---.278/.278/.667)

Snappers (9-18) Jeff Suppan ((G--4.30, 1.27--not bad!) Cristian Guzman (S--.225/.258/.528) Angel Berroa (G--.317/.355/.545--nice surprise)

Park Hunklas (13-14) Andrew Miller ( S--ERA 12.31/WHIP 2.43 (ouch)) Yuniesky Betancourt (S .158/.171/.272--needs to get 555 plate appearances--double ouch) Deivi Cruz (S--.219/.275,/.370)

Super Spreaders (16-11) Daniel Cabrera (S--ERA 7.66, but WHIP of 1.30) Mike Napoli (G--.296/.367/.557) Pedro Astacio (G--The following is not a mistake----(ERA .64, WHIP .68)

Timelords (13-14) Shawn Estes (G--slight---4.21, 1.83 but 1-1) Jose Lopez (S--slight-.253/.289/.475) Kenny Rogers (S--7.20 ERA , 2.12 WHIP (Ouch)

Brutal Bats (14-13) Ramon Ortiz (S--9.82, 2.32 ouch), Omar Vizquel (S--.226/.282/.265) Jimmy Rollins (S--.268/.366/.473)

PostFri Aug 05, 2022 4:18 pm

League--48 games completed
All but 3 teams are within 4 games of the division lead
Largest division lead---2 games---other two division leaders have a 1 game lead

East: Legendary LM Bombers' Louisville Bats took a two game lead over Generationm1's Premeditated Resentment. The Bats are on a 4 game winning streak. Kevin Brown is 7-0 and Dimitri Young leads the team with 12 home runs while Luis Castillo is hitting .359/.401. Interestingly, Premeditated continues to have the best run differential in the league with a +63 mark.

Central: DSZCYPKA's One For Pops continues to set the pace but the lead is down to one game over Spider67's Hickory Taverns. Carlos Zambrano and Derek Lowe both have 6 wins. Manny Ramirez was at (.344/448/.823) at our last update but had a relatively tough week--he's now at .294/.394/.655. Jeff Bagwell is at .301/.421/.572.

West: In a division with two titans of the Mystery game, The BC Manager's Sooke Super Spreaders continues to hold a one game lead over 86 time Mystery Champion Franky35's Easy Money. During the last update, Kevin Millwood was highlighted as being a leader on the pitching staff. Well, Kevin is now a free agent--he was dropped and replaced by Wade Miller. Pedro Astacio continue to impress. While not at the levels of our previous update, Pedro is 4-1 with an ERA of 3.17/WHIP. Josh Hamilton paces the offense--he has already missed 22 games due to injury but is at .398/.449/.761 when he plays.

The injury bug has resulted in 71 games being missed-- Jim Edmonds and Ben Zobrist for 15 games each. The BC still has the team in first place. Relative newcomer Burley Norsemans' Badlands Brutal Bats are just 2 games off the pace.

Interesting player moves---

Hitters

Mark Teixeira, David Ortiz, Frank Thomas, Derek Lee, Roberto Alomar, David Wright, Brian McCann and Mike Piazza were all shown the door since our last update.

Pitchers:
Pedro Martinez, Tim Lincecum, Roy Halladay, Mike Mussina, Mark Buehrle and Billy Wagner were all released over the past week.

Piloneaus382's Sabotaged Snappers (21-27) Jeff Suppan ((S--3-4 5.00, 1.43) Cristian Guzman (S--.216/.252..270) Angel Berroa (G--.322/.365/.561--nice surprise)

Hitters: Gold--Yuniesky Bentacourt, Silver-Omar Vizquel Bronze Greg Vaughn

Gifts:
Gold: Pitchers--Pedro Astacio (no change) but Jeremy Bonderman closing fast
Gold: Hitters--Angel Berroa (was Mike Napoli )

Owner handed biggest headache considering all three players

Rigged Splits and his Beren's Park Hunklas. Both hitters assigned to the Hunklas require a lot of plate appearances---Yuniesky requires 555 appearances while Devi Cruz needs 507. Andrew Miller--as expected--has been a disaster. One bit of good news for Rigged is Andrew has pitched 45 innings and only needs 25 more to reach his required innings.

Owner with fewest headaches caused by the three gifted players

The BC Manager and his Sooke Super-Spreaders---Received Pedro Astacio and Mike Napoli have both been positive contributors. The third player, Daniel Cabrera is 3-3 with a WHIP of 1.32. Not bad when compared to other starters assigned via the draft.

Soon I can try to lock Miller in the cellar and I just got a 15 game reprieve from using Betancourt so I picked up what I hope will be a good player in those 15.
