I have a lot of stuff going on right now, and not a lot of time, so please help me out in keeping things running as quickly and smoothly as possible.

Based on the decision to shake up the league last year, we agreed to implement a # of keepers format of 4-5-6-7-8-7-6-5-4, etc. Since the # was 4 last year, this year it is ...

5 Keepers Per Team
(6 for last year's Champ - Congratulations Unholy Alliance!)

I set up a live draft in Yahoo, the date and time can definitely be changed so hopefully we can find one that works for everyone. Really hope everyone's back this year as well.

*** If everyone is interested, we could consider changing the draft to an auction format. Let us know if that interests you. For now, it's set as a regular live draft.

Just checking in on if you had found a replacement for me in this league already since I mentioned last year I wouldnt be returning. If need be I can do the draft and manage team until end of april.

Did we? It still shows Cheech as being one of the league members in Yahoo.

Shit... I think I thought this was the dynasty league board.

Looks like we still need keeper lists from 5 teams:

- Metal
- Brodeur
- Guinch
- Cheech
- Madpuck

We may also need to consider some replacement manager options. Cheech had mentioned previously he was dropping out, but is willing to manage the team through the draft and into the season if need be. Let me know if you know anyone who might be interested.

Hopefully we don't lose too many teams - some of us are in several Points and Head-to-Head leagues, and it's really nice to have a Roto League as well (my favourite format).

Stephen Strasburg
Zack Greinke
Francisco Rodriguez
Freddie Freeman
Kyle Seager

Thanks!

I can't make Thursday, seems like the best idea to hang on to Monday since it's been planned for a while and seems like most teams are available.

Still waiting on Metal's keepers. If he doesn't reply, does anybody have a replacement manager in mind?

He won't even reply to PMs? Seems odd.

It is odd, though I've only sent one pm yesterday (sent a couple of emails previously). Not sure what is going on.

Still no reply. Sent him another pm & email. Not sure why he is not replying, but if we don't hear back asap, what should we do? I set his team's keepers as the 5 highest rated players in Yahoo for now.

Worst-case scenario, I guess we could consider autodrafting the team and trying to find a replacement. If anybody knows someone that can take over on short notice, let me know ASAP.

If Yahoo will let me, I suppose another option would be to contract the league down to 11 teams.

My wife will take over his team.
