PatandRons - Starting three pitchers that haven't played yet this season. Over a month since last lineup change.

Baseball Bloggers - Has had Carl Crawford and Andy Pettitte in starting lineup all season. No roster changes in two months.

Bummer.

That's not cool. I figured both of those guys would be dedicated owners. We're definitely going to have to think about lining up some replacements.

You will be hard pressed to find 24 super dedicated owners (hell, that is hard enough to do in the MLB). I know I am not super active, but I try, I guess that counts for something!

Hansman is right...most fantasy leagues with 12 or 14 guys have some guys drop out, let alone one with 24. I think one this size with participation over 50% is pretty good.

And the people that are participating are fairly active, as far as roster moves, trades, and shit talking. I've been in leagues before where everybody just drafted their players, and set their lineups, and that was it.

I have to stay quiet. You have to have a team worth talking shit about in the first place.

This is awesome! Best and most active league I've been a part of.

Was wondering if there was a point where the commissioner would get involved with setting their lineups or possibly finding replacement owners.


Yeah that might be option, I'll reach out to inactive owners and come mid season we'll see

Rick, while I appreciate Taint Petersburg, there was no way in hell I'd part with Zobrist and Santana. Santana has been the biggest steal of the draft by far for me. I picked him up super late and he's done well for me.

That's alright. After the nights Beltran and Zambrano had last night, I'm not too excited about trading them away anymore. Beltran is having an MVP start for me. I just hate how dirty I feel when he succeeds.

I have to take a shower every time after Yadier Molina puts up 20 points for me.

I feel the same way about Braun. That fucker is feast or famine for me.

Careful, I had the opportunity to trade Chris Sale 2 weeks ago for a decent return, at least as it stands now.

My team has come all the way back to take a .25 lead that won't hold for long.

Luke Hochevar lost me 20 points today and a total of 33 for the week. I'm going to Marmol his ass to the bench.
