    Invitations sent to the 11 that did it last year.

    Open invitations for 5 spots at this point

    Set the draft being March 25 at 7:45 Pacific but that could change if ppl can't make it.

    There was some talk of having a keeper league for next year. I'd be okay with that if others want that.

    In. I've got a title to defend.

    A keeper league would make trades a lot more interesting the last half of the season. Otherwise, it gets to the point where only about 5 or 6 people really have a shot and everyone else kind of loses interest. It does require a long-term commitment to this, though.

    In. A keeper league would be great, as long as everybody actually pays attention all season...

    You should have traded me Carpenter. He didn't do **** until the playoffs.

    Ugh. I made too many mistakes. That being one of them.

    I am tempted to draft Carl Crawford in the early rounds because I know he is determined to **** me two years in a row and will end up having some spectacular year on someone else's team if I don't. :bang:

    jimmy, you're capping this at 12 teams right? 16 is too many and i won't play if that's the plan.

    I'm ok with 16 as long as we stick to 1 catcher per team.

    And let's hope we don't have a run on injuries at a position like we had at 3B last year. (War Bautista being 3B eligible.)

    I think we're going to have to trim the rosters a bit if we go to 16. Right now the starting lineups include 3 MI's, 3 CI's and 5 OFs. Plus a utility player. For 16 teams that's going to take almost 200 players just for the starting lineups. Major league teams only start a little over 250 players total, including DHs. Add in a 2-3 bench players and you're going to have pretty much every starting player in MLB on a roster. At that point the whole league just revolves around who happened to grab the right players at the start of the year. Doesn't leave much/any room for making moves aside from hoping to get lucky and have the top waiver spot when somebody new breaks through.

    I'll probably cap it at 14 but I'm not sure how many from last year are playing so I don't want to restrict those that want to sign up.

    I will eliminate some of the starting rosters though. Probably get rid of an OF and P.

    I think we have 2 that didn't renew yet and one open spot for a new person.


    I'll probably lock the teams in during the first week or two into March and then set the draft order.

    Okay we are at 11 teams. I'll have an independent person pick names out of a hat for the draft order and post it later tonight or tomorrow morning.


    I have set the draft at 7:45 PM PACIFIC on March 25 which is next Sunday. If you can't make it tell me now so we can set the draft at another time.

    I would argue (3rd-5th) are the better positions to draft this year. Especially if the first two go with the standard options of Cabrera and Pujols.

    If we keep that I will probably miss the first hour. Friday night works best for me or later on Sunday night or Tuesday night.
