    Maybe I'm having math problems but I get 8.4 hours is everyone takes 90 seconds.

    Thats why three minutes and 90 seconds are two different things [​IMG]

    8+ hours is still too much time.

    Have we set a date already for that?

    YES... See you already are unprepared!

    Is Manny Still available?

    This roster breakdown is cool but can you ditch the second catcher? I don't see any upside in getting deep into that position since it barely has any talent through 12 anyway. Also the idea of a DH-only UTIL is a little bizarre - any batter should be eligible there.

    First, I agree with the fact that having two catchers is ridiculous. In fact, having two of any single position player on your roster active is ridiculous.

    If you have a better roster, you build it, post it, and we will discuss it. We have had exactly ONE official suggestion on "large" roster so far, which I am against, but most of the others wanted, so I took it. So suggest something!

    I am officially vehemently against this idea. The league is overly-complicated enough as it is. To the point where keeping up with it will probably rapidly become tiresome for me as it is. The defensive demands of the OF do not matter in our league at all. We are not doing defensive scoring. If you want to manage a "real" baseball team Bill, I'm sure you could just go buy one.

    Figure out how to do this and post it Bill... don't make me try and guess what you want.

    Instead of 2 c, 5 OF and such you just have bench spots.

    Starters:

    C
    1B
    2B
    3B
    SS
    OF
    OF
    OF
    Util

    Thats exactly how we started out, and people bitched that there weren't enough roster spots. Convince THEM.

    Tokyo Slim, I like the current roster setup. The only change I would make is one starting C instead of two starting Cs.

    I am fine with the 23 man roster, especially if we are doing a live draft

    As foar as playing for cash goes, anyone who wants to participate, send me a PM.

    Depending on how many decide to ante up, we can have the top finisher take all or if enough decide to go for it, compensate the next (or next two) finishers as well.

    Here's what I recommend for pot distribution:

    5 or less: top finisher take all
    6-9: top 70%, #2 30%
    10+: top 70%, #2 20%, #3 10%

    Shall we make it $50 or $100?

    ok... two decisions on the table:

    So far... we have the vote to drop the second catcher and MI positions and add more bench spots, which I heartily endorse.

    yea or nay


    we have the draft on sunday the 25th instead of Saturday the 24th. To which I don't really care.

    yea or nay


    I am going to change the settings exactly ONCE more, so if there is anything else killing you about the league's settings, let me know now. I will not tolerate any Steve-B'ish whining this year that people are uncomfortable with rules or whatever, and thats why they are losing.

    Will there be an automatic option for the draft (i.e. draft from pre-set lists for people who can't be there to draft manually)?

    I vote yay on the first measure.
