    We need another team. Who's got a buddy?

    Last call for votes on this change. 8/11 votes cast. I'd like this resolved ahead of the draft. Looks like we're adding XBH and dropping at least one stat, maybe two of the individual bases..

    I was the last team to join so if we don't find a 12th by draft day i'll sit this season out.

    I'll step up the search a little bit. The more teams, the better.

    I'm going to make this change. Clearly a majority favours dropping at least one category, and most prefer dropping two.

    Holy crap, I've been looking forward to the draft on the 30th for some reason. I now realize that's not even a Sunday lol. Sorry for missing it, but I'll be here for the season!

    My pitching has been horrible so far. I made a few changes to my roster, so I hope it will help in the long run :x:

    First couple weeks are always just to get the team how you want it.

    I feel you man, I've got McHugh in another league. He's basically destroyed the ERA stat for the week. 15.00 WHIP was brutal too.

    This is my first time playing fantasy baseball, so I've definitely got a lot to learn, but I think I'm getting used to it, and working on getting my team just right.

    Looks like rb_chimprb_chimp hasn't been around for a bit. His lineup hasn't changed in a week and a half. He's had someone on the DL playing in the outfield since the 14th :happysad:

    Hopefully he'll stick around. If not, we can look for someone to take over his team.

    Yeah he could just be busy with stuff at the moment.

    Melky's Juice Box has been MIA for awhile now aswell. Which is surprising because he's usually one of the top teams every year.

    This thread needs more smack talk.

    Of course, the week that my batters forget how to hit a ball is the week that I'm up against Melky's Juice Box, and he isn't MIA anymore :(

    I've emailed rb chimp about being MIA and asked him to maintain his team or allow me to find a new manager for it. Sorry about letting it go so long. :o

    I've been on a pretty good run lately.. I had weaknesses I focused on, and I think I've resolved them for the most part.

    It's been a couple of days without a response. Probably soon time to start shopping rb chimp's team to interested managers.

    FYI, the All-Star Break shortens the week of July 11th.
    Week 15 will combine 2 Game Weeks and last from July 11th until July 24th.

    So... I totally forgot that today was the 4th of July, and most of the games were played this afternoon, so I didn't get around to adjusting my lineup. Thankfully everybody played today, and I'm up against rb_chimp'ers this week :lol:

    He's MIA again (Last Active Thu Jun 23 8:34am ADT). I'll give him another nudge tomorrow, it'll be two weeks.

    I think we need to make a rule regarding team maintenance in ahead of the 2017 season. Something along the lines of show up and fix your team at least once a week for the duration of the season.

    It isn't fair that some of us get a bye week when a manager isn't participating and others don't get the bye week when that manager suddenly shows up and sets a line-up.

    Standings are going to get a good shakeup after this 2 week stretch is over.

    Standings after Week 14, for future reference. I think I'll start posting these weekly.
