Oscar Taveras didn't get me many points at all. Zunino did ok though. I finished with 339 for the week. I'm guessing the leaders will be around twice that.

Disappointed with Taveras' first week as well. But hey, that's baseball.

I unlocked all the big dogs about three days after the first week started. I've got an OK lineup for April, but I expect I'll fare much better in May

I've got some great players but like you said they don't all play great at the same time. Obviously there is alot of luck involved with this game.

I've got 384 points, on the prizes page, it says "Blue Wave Card" for the one pack I hit.
As someone mentioned they updated the image on that page, my image shows a blaster box of Allen and Ginter, that's the best they could come up with for a random image? LOL

At 412, including a negative 12 stinker by Skaggs.. I can't help but think if your not at the top now.. The likely hood of catching up is low

the rules are pretty dumb, i assume it should be read that the guy must be promoted while in your lineup? i mean do you get 200 for jose f even though he was "promoted" before the season even started, i obviously benched him on purpose and i assume he must be the single best player

No, I have JBJ and he's rocking 33 pts.

I assumed they were going to weight the scores based on level, not give a flat bonus for a promotion. I wonder if Straily could double dip...

You could literally litter your roster with AAA/MLB tweeners and win the thing for a month if a guy gets called up for a spot start or a cup of coffee here and there.

I don't think that requires much prospect knowledge. You could just read Yahoo fantasy baseball's minor league updates and pick guys who are on the verge of being called up.

There is little to no reward for minor league promotions compared to major league promotions.

BRB adding Arenado, Mike Olt, Trevor Bauer, Dan Straily and some AAA jobber reliever to my roster.......

463.71 and does not include the 200 pts for Rendons Promotion. Sano is the next to hopefully get the call... got him on my team 96.88 points by himself...

The fact that they don't have a live leaderboard and stats associated with each player showing how points were tallied is ridiculous.......but not really unexpected.
