Have you even gotten e-mails back from them?

I would do option 1 and see if someone else wants the team in the next 36 hours, at least Shark.


I've not gotten anything from either of them. Ryann keeps saying he wants to join, but has yet to email me. Also, if Corsair comes back, he could inherit one of them. The problem is that all of that has to be finalized before the draft tomorrow, I don't think we can change managers after that.

However, I am leaning towards #1 for similar reasons. First, we all have a conflict of interest as we all want Adam Dunn et al back in the draft. But second, SOMEONE is going to have to manage those teams, and the less attractive they are, the less likely someone will actively participate.


We can't do anything once the draft happens. So, should we find alternate owners? I don't care if they don't draft, but I want someone who is going to pay attention to the team. If they aren't answering e-mails, then find other owners. I am not trying to slight them, but by them not responding and they might have a good reason, their interest isn't that high.

What about someone taking on a 2nd team with a rule about not trading/releasing players to your other team?

Here's what we'll do. We will hope for participation from both IA Pirate and Shark. They were reasonably active last year. If they are not, we will ask them to add a co-manager who can effectively take over their team. That way there is no pressure to make changes before the draft tomorrow.

I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and say that they just haven't turned their attention to baseball yet this year....

Sorry I wasn't at my computer today....just my 2 cents BBF. I PM'ed you before about this, but I would ditch their two teams if they don't respond. No offense to either of those guys but just from my memory from last year I don't think they were real active. I know IA wasn't. He never changed his lineup and even stated a complaint about the format because he didn't feel like there was any way to catch up. I'm all for having them in the league but if they don't pay attention then it will unfairly skew the whole league. I'd rather have less teams but active owners. I know it sucks for you because you are trying to be diplomatic about it. I run another league and know the feeling. Obviously do what you want, but that is my 2 cents on the issue. Their players could be thrown back into the pool....Again, no offense to either of those guys....
