If we don't get more time, I'll let it go autopic, and you'll all be sorry.
Please propose an new date and time.
If no one objects, we'll go with it.
I'd like at least another week. We have til April, right?
How does putting it off a week sound to everybody else?
I'm also hoping Ticomaya will play again this year.
Right now we have seven players.
Opening Day is Sunday April 5, Cardinals @ Cubs.
Fortunately, there's no weird overseas game this year (no offense, Australia).
That's a lot better for me, George.
OK, I'll get Rhys to move it.
I'm in ... now I just have to think of a clever name ...
The suspense is killing me.
What about something new and unexpected?
Say, like Ticomaniacs.
That"d be cool.
New draft date/time:
Sunday, March 22, 7:45 EDT
I was hoping for Ticunatics.
I am wondering if anyone has reviewed the settings for the league this season. It seems that we will have fewer players this year. I don't know the ramifications of that.
I was speaking with Rhys and he is going to look up last season's settings and
default to that. If you have suggestions, now is the time to make them.
These are the settings from last season. I just pulled them off Yahoo.

Now if I could only remember what babip means..
Kidding, I keep an acronym list on my desktop in season so that I can figure out online commentary by acronymic sports writers.
I had already set my draft rankings to the points scheme.
But I actually like our standard method better.
What is the "points scheme"?
When I set up my draft rankings, I do little more than remove all the Yankees.
