The Scoresheet gang helps you fill out your lineup card for Opening Day.
While participants in other types of fantasy baseball may cool their heels after the pre-season draft, Scoresheet players have one final task at hand before Opening Day: filling out the lineup card. Some find the lineup card a chore, but spending a few extra minutes on it is a must to wring every last win out of a Scoresheet team. The general key to filling out a lineup card is to think like a manager from the 1980s. A smart manager somewhat ahead of his or her time, sure. But trying to force the latest in sabermetric thinking onto the card will often just result in leaving wins on the table. Keep that in mind as we go through the main features of the lineup card.
Perhaps the most important advice we can give is to platoon everywhere. With some foresight in the draft, these platoons may be obvious. But check every single player’s splits, because surprisingly often, it will make sense to bench a star or semi-star half the time. Our lineups vs. RHP generally look completely different than our lineups vs. LHP.
In this week's podcast, the gang breaks down some late-round options and welcomes Bret Sayre to discuss his first Scoresheet draft.
Sure, roto enthusiasts have their big-ticket sleepers such as
or Yordano Ventura , but it’s the Scoresheet player who has the thrill of drafting 20 rounds after those guys are off the board. Last week, the Outcomes participated in the annual BL DwMurphy draft, one of Scoresheet’s flagship leagues. With a soft keeper protection system and rules discouraging protecting minor leaguers, it’s functionally a 24-team one-year league, which means that there are more picks in the draft than there are players in the major leagues. If you’re in a similar situation, who should you look out for at the bottom of the scraped barrel? Nolan Arenado Read the full article...

A look at how the hot corner stacks up for Scoresheet leagues.
As you probably guessed, this week we’re tackling the hot corner for Scoresheet players. Below, you’ll find our rankings, general thoughts on strategy for third base, and some deeper looks at players we felt were important to single out. Tune in to our podcast for more thoughts on the position and to hear us answer listener questions on drafts and keepers. As always, we’re happy to answer any Scoresheet-related questions you might have, on the record or off. Also, in case you missed it, you can check out

A look at how this position breaks down for Scoresheet leagues, including rankings and which players would benefit contenders and rebuilders.
This week, we’re taking a look at shortstops. If you tune into our podcast, you’ll hear our thoughts on individual players and strategy, only some of which we cover below. We also answered a number of reader questions on keepers, and we discussed what keeper rules we’d change if we held the keys to the Scoresheet kingdom. If you need help with any last minute keeper decisions, feel free to drop us a line and we’ll do our best to get back to you before the deadline.
