No radio coverage of this one, but the transcript of the Derek VanRiper chat below.
[Mar 15, 2:45 PM] DerekVanRiper: Hello! [Mar 15, 2:45 PM] DerekVanRiper: I had to prep some chicken for quinoa chicken soup…exciting times here at home in Madison. [Mar 15, 2:50 PM] KingerThePW: What time is this draft supposed to start? [Mar 15, 2:51 PM] DerekVanRiper: 3p ET [Mar 15, 2:54 PM] DerekVanRiper: Very curious to see how the league adjusts to the scoring settings for today. [Mar 15, 2:54 PM] rotoman: Hi Derek, I just gave you magical moderator powers, in case you need them. [Mar 15, 2:54 PM] DerekVanRiper: Thanks, Peter! [Mar 15, 2:54 PM] Chamberlain: it looks like fantrax successfully imported the scoring settings, or else the similarities are but a pleasant coincidence [Mar 15, 2:55 PM] rotoman: You may see me here later, but I’m zonked from hearing the auction call some 280 times in the last five hours. [Mar 15, 2:55 PM] DerekVanRiper: Totally understandable [Mar 15, 2:56 PM] Guest7477: Very interested to see how a delayed season would affect pitcher adps [Mar 15, 2:56 PM] rotoman: You heard it about 330 times yesterday afternoon. How did you stand it? [Mar 15, 2:56 PM] DerekVanRiper: I played music over it during the Mixed Auction [Mar 15, 2:57 PM] DerekVanRiper: I think the going once/going twice/sold audio in every auction room can lag a little anyway, so it doesn’t help me much. [Mar 15, 2:57 PM] rotoman: The big thing with the pitchers is the guys injured now regain their standing, depending on when you expect the games to resume. [Mar 15, 2:57 PM] rotoman: Very wise, Derek. [Mar 15, 2:57 PM] Guest7477: i just wonder if the end pitch count for most big arms will be like 160 ip instead of 210+
[Mar 15, 8:20 AM] Mgianella: Good morning. [Mar 15, 8:42 AM] RayHQ: good morning gang! [Mar 15, 8:43 AM] rotoman: Good morning Ray and Mike. [Mar 15, 8:43 AM] Mgianella: nice to be done (well, until whenever my home league reconvenes) [Mar 15, 8:54 AM] Guest7561: Good morning! Thanks for doing this. Any chance of a twitch tv stream like DVR did for the AL yesterday? It was great to be able to watch the bidding. [Mar 15, 8:56 AM] RayHQ: I’m your host today and I’m not set up for that, sorry… [Mar 15, 8:57 AM] Mgianella: Justin Mason is doing something on Twitter that includes a stream.
And what follows is a transcript of the chat with Jason Collette.
[Mar 14, 2:50 PM] JasonCollette: I think it’s all set — back in my hotel now [Mar 14, 3:02 PM] JasonCollette: Joel……are you ready? [Mar 14, 3:03 PM] JasonCollette: I SAID, ARE YOU READY????!!!!!!! [Mar 14, 3:04 PM] DVR: LOL [Mar 14, 3:04 PM] DVR: I got my five minutes of backwards walking in, I’m ready! [Mar 14, 3:05 PM] rotoman: Doesn’t look like Joel’s ready! [Mar 14, 3:05 PM] JasonCollette: Peter — do I need admin access or anything or just chat in here? [Mar 14, 3:05 PM] DVR: Counting on you, Joel! [Mar 14, 3:05 PM] rotoman: You can just chat and that works fine for chatting. [Mar 14, 3:06 PM] JasonCollette: but what if I want to block DVR? [Mar 14, 3:06 PM] JasonCollette: I mean, that guy annoys me [Mar 14, 3:06 PM] JasonCollette: wait – is this not private? Shit [Mar 14, 3:06 PM] JasonCollette: 🙂
