I'd be interested. Not a very schticky poster around these parts with any real reputation or anything but I've been hanging round FBG's for quite a long time. Like to think I know my baseball and am a decently active poster in this forum.

Do you play at ESPN or Yahoo or somewhere else? Edit: What is BBT?

Also, how do you handle adding Cubans or Japan League players? Does someone keep a spreadsheet of who has who?

League sounds intriguing. Please keep me in mind for a spot.

League is hosted on CBS. BBT is a defunct site that pre-dates this board.

We track players not in the CBS database on the league site. With Tanaka and the Cubans coming in this year, there's currently nobody on the list but there usually are a handful of names.

I'"m good to start the dispersal draft in here whenever. Guess we just need to do the dice roll for first pick.

Away from my computer right now but will be back a little later on today to figure the dispersal draft stuff...

GWB, assume we want to do snake draft? Highest roll for first pick?

Not sure if the first one went through because I got a non responding from Safari but if it did it went to the wisruthroll address... I rolled again if it didn't go through and got a 927. So if my first roll went through to the email I will take that but if not I think it is 927.

So we can pick from anyone from the two teams released back into the pool plus anyone else not already on a current roster, correct?

The new guys are about halfway through the dispersal draft.

We should be starting the annual one round add/drop draft early this week.

Just finished up the draft... Not sure if I took too many or too few prospects to round out my team but the depth thinned out real quick with the draft.

For a guy like myself that traded his RP last season with the idea of trying to replenish the corp after an off-season that opened up a spot or two, it's a complete screw job. No way around it, really.

Just wondering who/how I send the payment for the league to?

Also not sure if everything is open for business yet but I'm open to receiving offers on any players. Tried my best to just kind of stockpile talent/chips in the dispersal draft so now looking to build the team in my image.

Waiver wire locks at the end of the season. It reopens in March with a one-round draft from worst to first to allow people to make transactions. You guys took all the good players this year, rendering it a fairly useless exercise this season. In years that we don't have a dispersal draft, the bottom five or so usually end up with a pretty useful player out of all this.

Yeah, I get that. Just not sure why we would be included at this point. Seems like we shouldn't be involved in this for this year. I'm also not sure I follow the comment about the "new teams" not indicating who we're dropping.

Oh, well I guess more or less you're getting the last priority to make a selection before it becomes a FCFS for everyone else. Its entirely likely you guys would simply pass on that option.

Though I too am puzzled by you not needing to drop anyone.

What is the roster max? I think we have 36 now. Is it 37 or something?

36 with a DL slot I believe.

I'm up for a trade. Sp to deal. Nothing major but wouldn't mind moving a SP for a bat.

I'd like to get some younger bats on my team. I have some talent to deal that could really help a team that needs pitching this year. Probably my highest end chip is Cliff Lee. Can also help people out with saves as well. Willing to deal most others though too. Not looking to tear everything down and rebuild but some young major league hitters or pitchers would help out.

There's an injured slot that's effectively a 37th man. CBS injury info on minor leaguers is worthless so I stopped enforcement of the DL two years ago.

Okay, makes sense then. I have a few names still on my shortlist.

I'll take a look. I have not much depth at all but I am in a spot to try and make a push.
