I believe that. Brodeur told me he wouldn't trade with me in this league because he belongs to Xio.

I set an all-time high for roto points this season and made a total of one entirely inconsequential trade.

I really wish I could have Prince back now that he's playing in Texas.

Perhaps. I think his numbers will be better, but he's still a player on the decline.

I don't know what I'm gonna do with Kinsler. He was a borderline keeper for me and I don't know what to make of the move to Detroit yet.

High run totals, less HR's and RBI most likely.

I dealt Fielder because he has been slowly declining but this move to Texas will help. I'm still very happy I have Corbin though.

I know it all depends on keepers but good chance Tanaka goes #1 overall correct?

It's possible, but I expect there will be a lot of other legitimate choices.

We've gotta get one more new member for this league. Suggestions?

I don't know but I'm beginning to get excited for the fantasy baseball season. Quick recap on how the offseason is working?

Who did you remove and add already? Disband the ESPN League and add BloodBrother?

DJP and Max have withdrawn from the league voluntarily. Everyone else stays (unless something changed over the winter?).

Prince and Yoda opted to enter the re-distribution draft we discussed and debated at length. The existing rosters of those two, plus the two departing members will be pooled together for a 4-team draft of keepers prior to full league draft. I hope to conduct this draft in February.

We're each keeping 9 players.

As for my ESPN league that a few of you are members of, I am going to consider disbanding it, in which case I would invite someone from that league to fill the final slot here. IrishFan has already been brought aboard as one replacement owner.

I'm not doing the ESPN league anymore. I found myself only caring about the league I was doing better in last season. Which turned out to be the ESPN league last year, and thus my participation and performance in this league suffered.

It was terribly boring. No one had interest in doing anything once the awesome draft ended.

And it was a massive, massive runaway in the standings.

Some of us were building for the future, bro. My team was on a collision course with the 2014 and 2015 titles.

Building for the future is stupid if you're completely sacrificing the first three years of the league. Some of you guys forgot you were playing fantasy baseball and not trying to assemble a Futures Game roster. We can continue it, but it's going to take a lot of work. You're welcome to be co-commish.

But I'm more worried about getting this league back running.

I loved the draft in the ESPN League but this Yahoo league for whatever reason I enjoy the most. Even before I had a good team in this league I still liked it better. Everyone participates and it's the smartest group of fantasy baseball GM's I've had the honor to play with.

There's nothing more fun than the inaugural draft for a keeper league. THe problem is sustaining interest from the bulk of the members.

This league has long been in good shape and will be again once we've got two new replacement members entrenched here.

I feel like the format of the other league was specifically designed to be more fun down the road. Part of the fun is building up your prospect base and seeing it pay off. Also, as well as your roster was constructed, I don't think it'd remain that lopsided. There was actually a lot of competition for a lot of the categories you got 10 points in. A few fewer home runs, stolen bases, strikeouts and wins would have shaved some points off that lead.

Basically, I don't think the league is broken. I'm still prepared to commit myself to this league, but I'd hate to see it go.

In leagues that don't have money on the line, I think sustaining interest and a high level of competitiveness is really tough. People weren't engaged in year one, why would their interest grow later? The answer: It wouldn't. Even when hoarding prospects begins to pay off, it's still not enough to rise up from the bottom.

Trust me, Irish. This league is that other ESPN league on steroids.
