the baseball thread
i cant find the old thread but are we gonna try to continue this again this year? with spring training getting underway and all these baseball stories on espn im starting to get baseball anxious.

Oatpay 02-14-2013 10:11 PM

the old thread is halfway down the first page, haha. but that thread is like five years old anyway

i'm still interested in keeping this going

Jared 02-14-2013 10:14 PM

If you need an owner, I'd like to throw my name in for consideration.

scott 02-14-2013 10:14 PM

aren't almost all of the league's participants gone by now?

we need new blood.

scott 02-14-2013 10:14 PM

but not if it's that jared assho...

oh wait.

burnin' 02-14-2013 10:17 PM

haha wow im blind, i looked twice for the thread and it was basically near the top.

id also like to throw out getting rid of head to head again. and yeah, drafting new members into the league to replace those who dont want to come back.

kevin 02-14-2013 10:25 PM

i'm down to do it again

and yeah we can definitely go back to roto if everyone hated head to head

someone send me my money for winning last year

Run CMB 02-14-2013 10:41 PM

i too would like to be involved

scott 02-14-2013 10:57 PM

is @lance in this league already? what about @sung?

Oatpay 02-14-2013 11:00 PM

i am also in favor of going back to roto, which appears to be the general consensus

and since our commissioner died or something, i wouldn't mind volunteering my services to run the league, unless anyone else really, really wants to do it. also, i've always made sure to pay back money i owe to people as soon as possible, so i guarantee the winners would get their money a hell of a lot more quickly than... well, not at all, it appears

eric 02-14-2013 11:10 PM

i'm in and yea, roto please

burnin' 02-14-2013 11:25 PM



We'll just need to hear from

@Mayor Quimby

then we can add people if others are going to drop out. id recommend jared first. i think quimby even told him he was in the league last year only to end up having too many people and dropping him.

kevin 02-14-2013 11:27 PM

if we're doing roto i don't think it's necessary to have an even number of teams

scott 02-14-2013 11:30 PM

it's not.

also, fuck canada. ditch those dumb fucks.

Oatpay 02-15-2013 12:54 AM


Jason 02-15-2013 01:50 AM

Yeah I'm still in if we are continuing.

eric 02-15-2013 06:59 PM

why wouldn't we continue??

tradition, dude

sung 02-15-2013 10:27 PM

well, hell, someone gimme deets for this and i might be up for it

ser hughes of cornhusker 02-15-2013 10:50 PM

fuck it, i'm in

Jared 02-16-2013 10:56 AM

Haha, missed this somehow. Thanks, dick.

brad 02-17-2013 03:31 PM

how would we handle the draft? same as always or live?

keepers or starting over?

scott 02-17-2013 03:34 PM

oh fuck off, mike trout is mine, asshole. keep the keepers.

because of how late it is, we might need a live draft, but if we get shit together quickly enough hopefully we can get drafting by march 1?

everyone post your 10 by saturday, please.

burnin' 02-17-2013 06:55 PM

yeah, gotta keep the keepers.

also we should decide on commish to help get the ball rolling. pat volunteered which is good enough for me. i messaged quimby and smyce on fb, quimby is out. havent heard back from smyce yet.

ok let's get down to business

in from last year:
kevin (10 posted)
brandon (10 posted)
pat (10 posted)
jason (10 posted)
brad (10 posted)

quimby is out, so there is officially one opening (i'll get to this)

@brentmoney, @robb, @smyce, @Mike - please respond by no later than wednesday night, 11:59pm central time with your intent to play or not. if i don't hear anything from any of you in that time (the latter two especially i doubt i'll hear from anyway), i'll give your rosters to one of the others interested in joining, of which we have plenty

as far as you guys who have showed interest in joining for the first time, i'm going on a first post in this thread/first serve basis for assigning new managers. and since quimby mike is out, @Jared, you're in (check yr PM's). @Run CMB, @sung, @hughes, @mikel (IN THAT ORDER), hang tight

for everyone that has already expressed their intent to play, please post your list of 10 keepers by no later than saturday night, 11:59pm central time, and let's narrow it down to 6 by the next saturday night if we can. the sooner we get these steps out of the way, the sooner we can start the draft. it'll be a thread draft like previous years, but it would be nice to set aside at least one night down the road when we can all be online at the same time and knock a few rounds out

those of you who have done this before, you all know the drill, but just to remind everyone: please make it a point to be active throughout the entire season. if you don't think you'll be able to find the time or if you have a premature sense that you'll probably lose interest (for example, like our previous commissioner did last year), don't join

i'll get to dues and the draft order when i know for sure who's playing

and we will be doing roto

thanks dudes

@eric, sticky this plz

kevin 02-18-2013 09:06 PM

haha, so quimby just ran off and quit with all the winnings still in his possession
