Flags Fly Forever Podcast

Episode 2

by Bret Sayre, Mike Gianella and Mauricio Rubio

The concept behind Flags Fly Forever is that we will aim to cover fewer topics in greater detail than your average fantasy podcast--generally four to five per episode. We hope you enjoy our debutante ball, so to speak, and if you have suggestions for future topics, you can e-mail us at the link below.

This week's topics:

00:01 - 02:55 - Hello!
02:56 - 14:17 - Balancing Real-Life Value in Fantasy Games
14:18 - 21:00 - Catchers: The Truth About Scarcity
21:01 - 34:00 - Catchers: Those Who Don't Catch
34:01 - 44:50 - Catchers: What We Learned in 2013
44:51 - 51:53 - Goodbye!

And everything you need to listen and enjoy is below this line that I'm typing right now:

I've been playing in a realistic stats fantasy league for 16 years now, and it's really not as confusing as you fear: For hitters, walks/hits/XBH good, outs bad; For pitchers, IP/SO good, Runs/BB bad. We use a points formula instead of categories, so that probably helps. We're also not as hands-on as you and most listeners are: lineups every two weeks; instead of a weekly waiver wire, two supplemental drafts at 2 and 4 months into the season.

It actually works really well. I'd be happy to pass along our rules if there's interest.

I can't speak for Bret or Mauricio, but for me it's not that it's confusing but I suspect I wouldn't enjoy it as much. Don't knock it until you tried it and all that, of course...

Also, your format doesn't sound as convoluted as some of the formats I had in mind.
