    Everyone please confirm if you will be back this year, and also give some thought to your keepers.

    We will do a live draft, so everyone please indicate your general availability and hopefully we can decide on a date/time that works for everyone.

    Here is the league site, but it looks as if ESPN has yet to reactivate it: http://games.espn.go.com/flb/leagueoffice?leagueId=160439&seasonId=2018

    Below PSJ has done the honor of outlining a guideline date for all activities. Of course the dates are subject to change upon availability, but the sooner we have a full 8 man crew confirmed the faster we can move on to the next date deadline.

    Returning notification date: March 14
    Add Newbees: March 15-19 (if needed)
    Keeper Deadline: March 20
    Draft: March 24
    Opening Day: March 29

    Here are last year's keepers list from what I found in the other thread:

    Slot F (2 max) Francisco Lindor - 0

    REMINDER: Any player kept for 2017 must have a number BELOW the slot number in order to be kept. All other players on your roster can be considered to have a number of zero.

    Please make your keeper selections both here in this thread and also on the ESPN site. You must make them here in this thread because I will need to approve each team's selections to ensure they adhere to the keeper rules.

    I would consider adding 2 newbies no matter what to get us to 10. And however you want to distribute the wealth is fine by me. I'd suggest either giving them the first 14 picks or reducing our keepers down by 2. Or just make them suffer by starting from scratch.

    I don't have a problem with that.

    Except for the fact that we needed to bring an outside of clutchfans manager to take over Smegg's team, alone, last season.

    It's a new season so if we manage to drum up interest my statements are mute.

    Also I'm down with having less keepers. That may help bring new managers rather than having them start from scratch.

    Will do tomorrow and assign Co commission duties. Also those keeper #s were all before last year's rollover so they are all actually +1 for this year. # must be below keeper slot limit maximum to be kept.

    Here is updated keeper info from last year to work with. All numbers are updated. Remember that the keeper number must be below the slot number in order to be kept for 2018, so a few of you have players that must be released or traded. Everyone else on your team can be considered to have a number of zero at this point.

    Slot A (indefinite) Bryce Harper - 6
    Slot B (4 max) George Springer - 4
    Slot C (4 max) Jose Abreu - 4

    League has been reactivated now and I assigned league powers to Rook and Flash. Thanks for helping out as my availability may be spotty depending on baby duties.

    Guys, sorry been out of country for awhile, just got back, so been out of pocket. I should be able to do the draft whenever, as well I will get my keepers set tonight. Sorry PSJ, thought I approved that trade before I left, but looks like you when a different direction already - that was my bad, no big deal.

    That doesn’t even make any sense, there is no problem keeping either of those players. Take Springer, for example, I have him in the max 4 times I can keep him on my team category and this is the fourth time for me to keep him (technically in his case it was not four years in a row - cause I didn’t keep him one year in between that time). After this year, Springer either moves to indefinite category or I have to trade him, won’t be able to keep him. I’m not sure what the problem is?
