I'm in now. The Manchester Dodgers are all ready to stake their claim on at least third place in Division B.

I'm fine with any draft time in the near future except for Friday night (Broken West/Walkmen show in Baltimore). My draft for my offline league is the 24th, but we probably want to have this one before then, so that won't conflict.

You don't want to do a new draft.

Here's what you could do: print out a copy of the original draft as is.

Start a new league with an offline draft. Fox should have this option. Then you (the league manager) can input the draft as you see fit; which is to say you can put in the results of the old draft but with two new teams getting the teams drafted by the two managers that dropped out to new people.

haha yeah thats the point. If he redraft but keep the old drafts the new owners would be fucked.

My friends and I do a keeper league. Sometimes long-time managers drop out. New blood get assigned old teams. It's not as good as being there from the beginning but we can always find people to play so if they don't like it they go elsewhere.

The draft is the draft. You can't mess with that or you have nothing.

You should easily be able to find two people who want in even if it's with a pre-drafted team. People who couldn't make the draft or didn't see this thread until it was too late.

Like, say, me.

This weekend I missed the draft (via Google Spreadsheets) in my longtime keeper league. Well, I missed the stuff that happened fully live with most everyone there. With the Google Spreadsheet we were able to do the first 5 or 6 rounds before then, though.

To make up for it (sort of) I just signed up for a backwards league. Or a suck league, as they're calling it.

According to the point system, the following are the best and worst players from last year:

Ronny Cedeno = 1384
Albert Pujols = -1854

Carlos Silva = 1390
Johan Santana = -1028

It should be fun. It's been a long time since I've done such a league in any sport.

CuervoPH
03-27-2007, 05:43 PM

I saw the Fantasy Football thread, so I thought I'd bump this puppy. C'mon people, I'm taking you behind the woodshed! A Scotsman, walking away with a Roto Baseball League!

Remember, if I win, then the terrorists win!

Okay, guys, can we just halt this embarrassment early? I've got 86 points - there's only 100 I can get, right? I told you I'd win this shit.

And the Brew Crew is back on top again too. Order is restored...

Are we in the playoffs right now?
I tried making changes and it says "page not found".

Try again - it's buggy. Today when I logged on everyone had 55 points!

You probably had difficulty picking up Ben Sheets for the simple reason that he's on my team...
