***UPDATE*** For those of you keeping score at home... We've added one new member, and I've heard from several interested parties. I've extended one offer to an owner who was with us briefly last year, and expect emb0lus back. Emb0lus is always late to show, but the other guy hasn't been seen on the board for a while, not sure how long we can wait for him. So we have between 1 and 3 spots. I'll likely add one this weekend and ask the others if they can wait a couple more weeks for a decision.


But I wanna draft now! :~(

I've got a buddy that may be interested. He doesn't frequent the baseball side of the Cafe too often, so I understand if you'd be looking for a more "qualified" candidate.

I'm out of town on business this week and have been pretty busy so haven't had the time to organize as much as I would like to. Oscar's friend is in, bringing us to 10. We'll wait a while on emb0lus, and I'll give the thumbs up to one more owner this week.

unfortunately i might have to back out of this league. i already have 4 on my yahoo login and im afraid that if i have to use multiple log-ins, i wont be able to keep up with the league as much as i would like...if you can find a worthy replacement, go ahead, but ill stay around to see if you need me to stay.

Well dang, sorry to hear it Snakes. This marks the largest departure we've had in any year. Good luck to you, come back and see us next year if you need another league.

Several defections this year. I'm going to miss everybody but I enjoyed trash talking with Emb0lus. His pride must have been hurt because he finished behind me in the standings. :-)

Rock you have always found excellent replacement owners.

And thanks for letting stoggie10 in, it will be a pleasure beating him in two leagues this year. ;-D

stoggie10 - It's on my "ultra" competitive friend.

Hi all.

Thanks for the invite to join your league Rock. I'm a committed player, so hopefully this should be fun.

As way of an introduction - I've been playing FB for about the last 10-15 years - can't remember exactly, but I do remember Sandbox free leagues, which was quite a while ago. I'm usually pretty competitive, although I have had the odd disastrous league, but even when that happens I keep going to the end. I'm stupid like that! I have one major disadvantage to most of you - I don't watch much baseball!! I live in England, and virtually all our coverage is on at 1am or on a pay tv channel that I cannot afford. So I can honestly say I haven't seen a game all the way through for about four years!! But I love box scores....

Being in England, there is obviously an issue with time zone differences, but if we draft on couchmanagers it seems like that shouldn't be an issue - I should be able to line-up enough players to make my picks without slowing us down too much.

I look forward to the challenge of taking on Cafe regulars!!

Regards

Welcome Legia13 and RedBullVodka.

By my count that gets us to 11.

RBV - American living in England...or Englishman that loves baseball?

I used to work at a summer camp with a ton of English students on a "working holiday". When we played softball they would take their gloves off "before" catching the ball! They were so much fun. I learned real quick that being from Great Britain does not mean you are English!

Whatever the case, glad to have you with us.
