    Please confirm here if you are interested in playing this year. Here is a summary of opinions from the other threads. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    - most people want to switch back to a split week format rather than 1-week game periods

    - most people are in favor of staying with the keeper format

    - most people would favor an expansion to 10 teams, even if it means ditching keepers

    - no matter what happens, PSJ will spend at least 9 of his top 10 picks on pitchers

    In.

    I would like to expand by 2 teams, but stay with keepers, and give the newbies an expansion draft of 7 players each before we get into the draft of it.

    All other assumptions look good.

    If possible. I'd like to stay with keepers and add 2 teams.

    If not I'm still in.

    Also, I have some competitive friends looking to join a FEB league. Just throwing that out there.

    One more thing. I can't remember all the players on my team. Can I log in somehow to collect that info? For keepers purposes.

    You gotta decide, man. Otherwise, RM95 can take over your team. Whatever happens in future years, there's always a spot for you.

    It doesn't look like we have enough interest from the board for expansion, so we will roll with what we have.

    I didn't realize how close we were to opening day, so we will have to get the draft started ASAP. Everybody please declare your keepers right away.

    For the site and league format, the easiest thing is to just renew with ESPN. I couldn't find a site that offers the split week format.

    Okay... I just reactivated the league and it cleared all rosters.

    To view rosters from last year (to determine your keepers) you have to click the drop down menu at the top of the main page and select 2014. Or, just click here:

    http://games.espn.go.com/flb/leagueoffice?leagueId=160439&seasonId=2014

    This is the main link to the site:

    Perhaps we should do a live draft this year? ESPN doesn't offer the slow format, so if we are doing that we need to either draft through the board only or use an alternative site for drafting purposes only (if that is even possible).

    You dropped David Wright on 9/10 to pick up Joe Panik, who you played in the final game. Wright's a free agent, not eligible for keeper.

    My list:
    Slot A (indefinite) Robinson Cano - 4
    Slot B (4 max) Adrian Beltre - 2
    Slot C (4 max) Jacoby Ellsbury - 1
    Slot D (3 max) Greg Holland - 1
    Slot E (3 max) James Shields - 1
    Slot F (2 max) Cole Hamels - 0
    Slot G (2 max) Alex Cobb - 0
