Honestly feel bad for the competition this year. I highly suggest being open with loved ones about why you can’t make eye contact and seem to be in a state of despair

I realize we are still a couple weeks away from the start of the regular season ... I'm hoping people are trying to see how Spring Training shakes out (in case of injury).

Or - is no one interested this year?

I propose that if last year's winner doesn't sign up this year, he forfeits the crown, AND he has to give us each $50.

I just realized I charged myself $250 for Ohtani when no player costs more than $200....but I'm gonna leave it, because it's hilariously stupid AND Ohtani rules that hard.

It's accounted for in my Google sheet, but I will leave the mention in the entries thread. ;-)

No. They are "free" and the equivalent of wild cards in previous years.

FYI - I'm allowing texascub's entry, even though it was past the deadline. The reason is, we have a low turnout this year. Last year was 15 teams and that was a new low. This year was 12 before texascub.

My bad. For some reason I saw it as midnight, not noon. Thank you for allowing my entry.

Oh, [expletive] me for not thinking of Trout as a bench choice. So the bench is different than the past, right? We can make moves on that prior to the ASB?
