I think there was someone who said they were interested in joining. I'd really like to avoid losing anyone else.

Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball opens on Thursday. We should roll the league over at that time and start adding guys to teams to get the player pool finalized.

Also, if anyone is looking to use a re-sign, I have Jacoby Ellsbury expiring and available for trade before the draft.

Here is a list of all expiring players*^#+

* - This is based upon a google doc review only, so players signed during the year are not listed here and may very well be expiring (see+)
^ - This list is generally organized by team going through the google docs, but some of the names are probably listed under the wrong team because of trades (some teams update google docs during the year, some don't, and still yet another group never updates (cough, Troy Loney, cough)
# - This does not account for re-signs
+ - I am separately listing all FA players signed to more than one year during the season. This seems easier than digging through the final rosters last year to see which extra guys might also be expiring. Basically, if there was a player on your team at the end of last year and he is not on your google doc and not on this list (+ list) then he should be expiring as he was a 1 year guy or an IR fill in.

It would seem to me that the best way of handling establishing the pool of available players would be to declare who is being kept and create a master list of unavailable players. Anyone not on that list is then available. I just thought people might find that list useful for draft prep.

There would be 4 categories of unavailable players. Pro players with remaining years on contract, pro players expiring but re-signed, farm players retaining eligibility, farm players losing eligibility but qualified/signed.

Can we set the draft date for like 2/15? Pitchers and catchers report? That gives us 6 weeks to draft and sign players and gives us an opportunity to see where some of these free agents end up

And i have a person that would be in - he's not on LGP but i can probably make arrangements for him to join LGP

Still need one more though right? Can we talk MWB into staying if we can't find anybody else? I don't really like the idea of a team folding. Maybe we can talk Ulf into coming back?

I'm pretty close to finalized with my stuff, just have to decide on contracts for hernandez and Teheran, which I guess we don't really need to decide until after the draft.

Also, I have both Tex and Ortiz on 1 year contracts. One or both can be available.

If I need to, I'll stay on rather than have the team fold. If we can find someone else, I'll leave. Just a lot going on for me right now.

I renewed the league and sent out emails to all times except Kicksave and MWB (for now).

Perhaps we can set a keeper deadline a few days before the start of the draft so that the Yahoo! player list is accurate as to who is available before we begin drafting.

It should be as simple as declaring keepers and running the non-keeper purge. That would really simplify things if we can do it that way.

I want to add a first round pick or two. I'll talk about moving farm players, the 2 first basemen i listed above, or future picks.

So can we look to start drafting soon?

KS is out and MWB wants somone to take over his team. No one has expressed any interest in the the thread, has anyone gotten any interest in PM or chat or anything?

I hate to be like, MWB you have to stay cause KS said he's out first and we only have one person looking to take over.

Would you guys rather have MWB's team be owned by the league until someone can take over instead of folding?
