We need a replacement owner for the Tigers. 
 

shotsup was a good owner for the Mets before he vanished prior to last year. He has since returned to the geek club and explained his absence. I can check if he is interested

Sorry guys but I am going to pass. Really liked this league and all it’s owners but I don’t want to end up lame down the stretch. 
Thanks for the offer.

You wanna jump back in, posty? Would be nice to have someone with a brain after what we went through last year and probably easier than finding a newbie. Was hoping shotsup would come back as he was a solid owner but I understand his reasonings

Yeah I can jump back in with the Natinals if you guys can't find anyone to take the 14th spot...

I think that would be fairly ideal. I’ll keep bumping the recruitment thread but I dont think any of us want a sketchy owner

Nats are fine, I'm certainly not in favor of adding a couple other available teams :ninja:

I think it’s the best plan. A solid owner who won’t disappear or be a baby. I think aside from 2018 we have had an absentee owner issue each of the past few years. 
 

plus I’m not getting any traction in the recruitment thread. 
 

last year we rolled for draft order in 2 weeks

How about this...

If no one steps up by next Monday the 17th, I will take the spot...  That should give any interested parties that might be wavering some time...

Sound like a plan?

Sure but I can tell you there are no interested parties to my knowledge unless someone else is recruiting and I am unaware

Gotcha...  I will go ahead and take the spot then so people can start prepping and the Yahoo (I am assuming) is going to be setup...

Who is running the Cubs?

My brother runs the cubs for.... I think this will be his 3rd season? In 2017 I think someone brought in a friend to run the cubs and they vanished mid season. Or maybe it was a member. I specifically recall you popping in to yell at them for not rostering DJ Lam. 😆

 

so I asked my brother if he wanted to take over the team for the rest of that year. He’s actually a Mets fan. I know he thought about switching last season when we had no Mets owner. I should ask him again. 
 

either way his handle is Dcb291 or something

WW if your brother wants to swap to the Mets this would be the time.  Or anyone looking to swap really.  

I'm all for switching to another platform like ESPn if we all want to.  I could care less but I work day shift and we do have all the history in our Yahoo league.  Let's just have the discussion and make the call.

I've started a new job, in a new state, in a new timezone so their will be adjustment but right "NOW" I mostly have time.  Until my permissions hit and the workload starts coming in.

Okay well 

1. I asked him and he says he’s sticking with the Cubs due to having research already done (Spreadsheet and such) and he doesn’t mind them. 
 

 

2 . I’ve gotten used to Yahoo. I’d prefer to stick where we have the league history. I have not noticed any issues since we started allowing same day add-drops

Roll dem bones

 

this is probably my favorite fantasy league because of the draft and strategy involved. Love this shiit. And I’m only in two fantasy baseball leagues. No basketball and like 11 football and this might be more fun for me than even my football leagues. Maybe because it’s a lot more challenging for me to take a small market team and the constraints I have in my talent pool versus having an entire nfl talent pool to choose from.

I remember we tried this one year with football and it just wasnt good. Too little FA movement to make it work.

It could never work. Like you said, too little movement and combined with careers being shorter for all but QBs and maybe the biggest factor is the lack of non counting statistical categories and role players. 
 

in baseball you can win a week with a role player helping your era or whip. You won’t really get much from having the 4th WR on a team

This league definitely makes the O's more interesting to watch, especially these days.  :thumbsup:

I believe that it has, in fact, not been.  This is what I see when I go there.  https://prnt.sc/r4b8gt

I guess the reminder would go to the commissioner.
