Dear FD and DK,
As a devout family man I am wondering what happened between NBA season and the MLB season. I was told repeatedly (in vary well written and flowery prose) why there would be no late swap for NBA. It seems DK especially was very concerned about us consumers being able to devout our time to our families and not be worrying about late scratches and making changes to our lineups all night (kind of like the Ron Popeil “set it and forget it”). We would have time to bond, play catch with the kids, go to church and maybe even a movie night without needing to “sneak out” for a bathroom break to check on late breaking scratches, etc… This was going to make playing so much better for everyone and all of their surveys agreed, DFS’ers are family 1st! If a late scratch ruins a lineup or 6 so be it.
Correct me if I am wrong, but the NBA season has 81 games while MLB has 162 games. I also am fairly certain that start times are staggered very similarily to NBA start times. Yet both FD and DK are allowing late swap for MLB. Frankly I am appalled! My wife is threatening to leave me, my kids hate me, and my pastor and the movie ushers are convinced I have a serious bowel issue.
Maybe Nigel and Matt Kalish both got recent divorces and decided #$@$ family time. It’s the only explanation I can figure to explain the late swap exception for MLB. The funny thing is MLB lineups are far more predictable and come out much sooner than NBA lineups and last time I checked Greg Popovich or any any of his kin don’t coach a MLB team.
So come on DK and FD quit ruining my family time with late swap!
thanks for listening (I expect a form letter telling me how baseball DFS’ers are very different than NBA DFS’ers in regards to late swap any minute now)
