Yahoo has their free baseball game up and running, are we going to do another league this year? I'm aware of some issues some members of last years league had with a certain participant in that league and hopefully we won't have that problem this season. I'd like to fill up a 20 teamer again this season. PM me and I'll provide you the info.

Yeah, I'm a year older and wiser this time around. I'm game, even though I'll probably end up with Cory Lidle as my ace once again.

I really like the live draft, but having one with 20 teams may be asking for trouble.

Yeah - last year it was a logistical nightmare to pull it off, so we ended up not having one. I'm hoping that things will fall right enough to where we can get everyone together long enough to have one.

I'm hoping I'll take less of an enormous dump toward the end of the season.

My PM's may not have gotten sent out. (User error more than likely.) If you asked me for the info before about 10:30 pm (pacific) last night, ask me again, as I foolishly deleted the messages I received.

I got your PM and joined up. The question is can I dig another Esteban Loaiza pre-season pickup out for this year? I think I may have been the only person in the entire fantasy baseball world who picked him up before the first game of the year :)

This whole league is bullshit. When the best player and defending champion from the previous year, skorpio17, is not allowed to play the whole league loses all credibility.

Whitebacon: It is one thing to be a sore loser, it is another to be a coward. I know that last year you said you would be in our league only to chicken-out later and not join up. For you to criticize anyone who had the balls to participate last year is retarded. Now you are scared that I will win it again, so you wonít let me play. You should change your name to Yellowbacon. You are a fucking coward and a bullshit commissioner.

Whoever wins this yearís fantasy title wonít have much to brag about. It would be like winning an NBA title during Jordanís first retirement. Or winning a baseball title in a league where the Yankees are not allowed to play.

Because the Lakers obviously suck, have sucked, and will continue to suck. The Spurs aren't that great either. The Yankees have dominated the World Series over the last 3 years, too, haven't they?

In addition, he was trying to avoid naming things explicitly. However, since you've brought it out into the open, I suppose that this (The W) would be a good enough place to start as to why he thought it would be best to not have you return. I can dig up 9 more good reasons, too, if you really want me to.

Honestly (and I think people from last year will back me up when I say this), I didn't mind losing - even losing big. The fact that you weren't even REMOTELY nice - or humble - about it was what set everyone off. As a result, here's your punishment. Enjoy the season.

(And just for posterity's sake - the league was full last year when he tried to join. Get your facts right ... but that hasn't stopped you before. Oh, and what JayJay said.)

Not that you'd have noticed, but I was commish last year, and my observations were just as TheCow said.

Why I mention this now, rather than at any point last season, who can say? Well, I can say. I've been drinking. Good luck to everyone who's in this year. You can all look forward to a year of getting humiliated by a team that bears no resemblance to MY team, the Dukes of Dorchester.

(Of course, I don't live in Dorchester, but "Dukes of Dorchester Street" don't fit.)

I didn't read Whitebacon's post that way. I read his paragraph and all I got was "hopefully we won't have a problem because hopefully Skorpio17 won't be an ass this year." Not "Skorpio17 can't play." But I'm probably wrong...

And if I am, and you can't play, then you should just start your own league and get all the serious fantasy baseball people to join. Without all those losers who just want to "have fun," your league would have all the cred at this board, wouldn't it?
