I recruited bbascom.  Sorry about that again (j/k) and he's definitively better then edjr was with the Sox.
Ted is/was a very sad loss. 29G? like you said, mia a lot but a cool cat.

my only memory of edjr was that he was running the Giants and then quit after the initial draft when the supplemental balls didn't go his way. pretty typical behavior for him even though we have become internet friendly over the years. 

29G apparently was a she who came over to the forum with a wave of women from some other internet message board about curly women's hair. I had no clue. We used to private message back and forth a lot this time of year as I always suspected they needed a bit of guidance with this league. Pretty sure they were here before me though. I was told they also passed a few years ago.

I was not aware 29G passed but yes she came from Naturally Curly website.  It was from a back and forth jihad back in the day.  TheNewGirl, addict, peenie, et others all came from that timeline.

I didn't know today was my FFT anniversary.  But I joined all the way back in 2001.
And 97% of my posts are probably right here in Homers.

Hard to imagine that first 2004 season now.  And I guess we had 20 teams.  I forgot that.

looking at yahoo history, I don't see a 2011 season. It looks like 2012 was my first year (for some reason I chose the Marlins even though the Rays were available) I didn't even remember there being 16 teams back then. I switched to Tampa in 2013 and then in 2014 the league was down to 14 teams.

This is my first year finally landing Semien at 2B, and somehow I still ended up with Adolis Garcia.  Luck of the dice roll finally shines on me!

I debated not taking him over and over once I rolled high.  With the bluebirds having 48 options at 2B in the pipeline and only so many pitchers, I figured I'd take my teams own ace.

I struggled through a season of Elvis Andrus at 2nd, so much appreciated!😃

League started the very first year with 16.  Wasn't sustainable.  14 went well for a long time.  While it'd be great, I do think a lot of us are in different points in our lives and getting to and sustaining 14 might be tough year to year.

My history shows the following:

2004 - 20 teams

2005 - 2007 - 18 teams

2008 - 2013 - 16 teams (I was absent for a few of these years)

2014 - 14 teams

2015 - 16 teams

2016 on looks like mostly 14 teams

We had 12 last season but I think 14 before that. When Ted passed, I feel like Posty came back to give us an even 14 and then when 29G passed, Posty didn't need to return for us to at least have an even 12. 

edit:  12 teams since 2022.

Did 29G pass or just leave the league (I don't keep up with the Geek Club anymore)?

I never even knew of 29G posting at the geek club, but then again for many years I was a main bored poster only. I think 2022, we all just assumed she no showed but I am almost certain someone at the geek club posted last year about her passing. I don't even think it was it's own topic, I think it was part of another.

Your remembrances are spot on.  Reported by a fellow Curly.

Me too but I need to hold off on my first pick for a bit. There is a chance the Red Sox might sign someone else that would end up being my first pick. If they don't sign him by 4 March, then I guess I will have to move on.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I heard the meeting actually happened a week or 2 ago so who knows what is going on. I'm not convinced they want to spend any more money this year honestly so I'm not overly hopeful...lol

Actually when Ted passed I took over his team and I had already had the Nationals, IIRC…
