I have PM's sent out to a few people to see if they're wanting to sign-up for this year's league since last year's league was a success. In other words, the typical 12-14 spots aren't open as of right now.

There are *at least* 5 spots open. If you're interested, drop me a line!

Maybe I should rename my team "The Wheel of Fortune." I went a little nuts on the high-upside youngsters. If this were a keeper league, I'd be psyched.

Moves were capped to prevent owners from constantly dropping and adding players in order to pad stats. It gives everyone a little something more to think about and makes the league a little more challenging. It's pretty easy to constantly add pitchers that are starting on the day you add them, only to drop them for the next day's starters and their stats.

However...if the majority of you would rather not have a maximum, I'll change it back to No Max. It's up to you guys. I just figured it would make things a bit more challenging.

all i know is that i loved fleeks ben sheets pick. picking a guy that isnt on the team anymore and is out for the year shows me hes a die hard closet brewers fan and secretly cheers for them against the cubs.

(i know you werent there live fleek, but i know he was still on your draft board as a passive way to show where your loyalties really lie)

I know. I had planned on being at the draft so didn't bother to pre-rank...it bit me in the ass, obviously. I shouldn't have gone out to the bar that night...

BTW, im fine with a move limit, lets see who is the better fantasy manager, not who can log in after midnight first and grab the next days starting pitchers.

Let's swap it back Emfleek, we joined as a no cap league. BS to change after joining.

BUT...you could've left the league. There was a month in between the time I changed it and the time we actually drafted.

But like I said...if the majority of the league wants me to change it back, I will. Otherwise, I see no problem with making the league a little more challenging.

As of right now...

I don't log into a league I don't have a roster in, so you're change a month ago was made aware to me on draft day.

I think putting a move cap and then raising minimum innings from 7 to 18 is a little too much when combined together.

Regardless, if more people are for it then it is what it is; I just think it's excessive.

I can't believe I missed the draft...and am a little ticked that I don't have Shawn Dunston, David Justice or Andre Dawson on my team...

But honesty how bad does my team suck? I haven't followed baseball as closely as I used to and I have a few guys I am clueless on...haha

Due to the majority of the league (6 for / 3 against) voting to keep the transaction max, we'll be keeping it.

HOWEVER...as a bit of a compromise, I'm going to bump it up to 65.
