Is this in addition to the six current players or would they be replacements?

Today I will cheer for 1 Cardinal and 3 Dodgers:
  • Max Scherzer to pitch a complete game with 12+Ks
  • Nolan Arenado to be the only successful hitter with 2 hits and a HR
  • Trea Turner to hit a cycle
  • Justin Turner to hit a cycle
Have fun watching this post-season everyone!

^^^ @cjedmonton I don't want to edit my previous post, but I forgot to validate against the Top 50 list. Wander is on there, so that leaves me with Shane. I completely understand if I voided one of my freebies there haha.

In addition to.

Everyone can have up to 8 players (or 7 if they opted for the 250 point cash out for a reliever).

Thank you for the reply. And one more question for now; for the additional pitching slot can you pick a reliever and default to the 250 point cash out?

@metallicalex777

Of course you can pick a replacement for Wander…before the deadline of course!

@WCTYSON

Good question, but no. Not really in the spirit of the game to knowingly pick a reliever with the intent of cashing out instead.

That option was only for those who blindly selected a reliever since they do not earn Game Scores.

Plenty of starting pitchers outside the top 50 though!

Totally agree and thanks again for the clarification. I’ve already made my short list and feel a lot have a chance to surpass the 250.

After careful research, and painstaking number crunching I came up with two players I thought would be great for my team.... and it was the same two as @WCTYSON !!!!
I can't have the same players, so I am going with my second choices, which I now believe will do better than my first choices:
Mike Zunino TAM and Charlie Morton ATL

I will add AJ Pollock and Kenley Jansen as my two, putting all my eggs into the Dodger basket. if i am not too late, as i know the game started already. I don't know if Pollock has done anything yet...

HA! Guess i should have read the post closer. If the Dodgers get eliminated tonight, my picks will have been stupid and avoidable! Oh well, I have confidence in LA!!

I get the LA enthusiasm…life long Dodger fan as well!

Out of fairness to the others, I’ll have to lock Pollock in. But, as per the above comments on relievers, you can replace Jansen with a starting pitcher outside the top 50 list.

The deadline is noon Eastern tomorrow (Oct 7).

Hope this is a reasonable solution!
