I am running one of the Bleacher Nation leagues on Yahoo and we are trying to run it as a keeper league starting this year. The problem is that there has been high turnover the last two years and we need to replace some owners with more dedicated ones. It's a category based league, so it's a bit of a different strategy than head to head leagues. I currently have three openings for sure from teams that didn't make enough moves last year and didn't respond to my emails. Anyone interested can email me at jefferybayless@hotmail.com or dm me on twitter @peaceknuckle

This is a pretty fun league, and there is a core of dedicated owners in place, and I'd like to make sure we only get quality owners/managers. Thanks ahead and I look forward to competing against some of you.

I would be interested in joining. I sent you an email. Also, if I do happen to get in and we get to choose which team to take over, I will take team 3.

Fantasy Baseball seems like something I should totally be into...

until the part about knowing/caring about the other 725 players in the league. That's when everything falls apart for me.

You are not invited. We have a strict anti-hallucinogen policy. Hippy.

I think that owning two teams might be collusion, but you're the law student.

Only team 2 is left, the others are taken. There may be more in the future, but for now, we only have one opening left.

Get your legal guy to define "hallucinogen" for me and we'll (maybe) talk.
