Yes, I'm a little behind. But never fear, we will be here!

I was hoping to have something more solid to announce, but OnRoto guys are working on implementing our rules. Yes, that means automated transactions, updating teams in real time. There will still be an LA overseeing, but you won't have the usual lag. I'll also have to look and see what rules we might have to tweak (I doubt everything will be perfect).

This may not be for every league. I'll have to see how many LAs return before deciding if it'll be all-in or optional.

I'm hoping to move our auctions to the OnRoto draft room as well, but that'll need testing.

I received no feedback as to where to spend a marketing budget. On the down side, that means no marketing this year. We'll need word of mouth to get some new owners in! On the positive side, that means that the prices will be reduced to just cover the OnRoto and Paypal costs.

Look for renewals to be sent out next weekend. I still need to put together the tracking spreadsheet.

Thank you for your patience, while we work out the next version of Mocksports FBB!

Shane-

You are such a mensch that for the first time in history, I have opened a PayPal account so that I don't have to send you a check!

Thanks so much! Unfortunately, my grand kids are going to be transferred in two years (my son-in-law is happily at the Norfolk Naval Base right now, just 20 miles away) and once they leave, I will commit to pay back.

Gratefully,
Chas. E.

The renewal status for each league has been updated.

I was going to get the available teams listed on the FBB page, but haven't had a chance yet. Look for that over the next few days.

shane,

i am looking at the renewal status of the leagues and it looks like most of the leagues are short on renewals.

I know I'd like to return, but I've gone back to work, and I'm not sure of my availablility during the drafts. I'm still trying to figure out when I will be working during that time frame. My schedule hasn't been set that far out yet.

Thursday is the deadline for renewals. What is plan B?

The status of each league has been updated. It is not a pretty picture.

Here is a list of the number of renewals + new owners for each league:
Banks - 9
Bell - 7
Bench - 6
Berra - 8
Bob - 11
Calhoun - 3
Clemente - 5
Feller - 3
Gibson - 8
Morgan - 4
Ripken - 4
Robinson - 7
Snider - 4
Sparky - 6
Uecker - 7

I consider any league with four or less renewals to be pretty much doomed. Those with five to seven are pretty much going to depend on the refugees from the doomed leagues to survive. I am, of course, fully confident that we can fill out the leagues with eight or nine owners.

I am extending the renewals through the weekend, and will send out another e-mail to the unresponsive (or on the fence) owners. We'll see what happens.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

shane,

i am losing teams in snider - clemente - bench - and ripken. At least that is what it looks like.

I would like to pick up the lollygaggers or fair fielders from the uecker league

and the dawgs from the robinson league.

Also what is the LA status. Will the LA's be assigned to new leagues.

thanks for your help

It looks like we may need to do some consolidating of leagues or is it too soon to consider this?

Is there a process for this? Like taking a league that has the most renewals and having a league with the lowest join with that league?

Thanks,
Randy

Looks like I am going to be losing Calhoun, Feller, and Ripken (assuming Bell gets filled).

If so, I'd be willing to take on:

Sparky - Culture
Robinson - Redz

Bottom line: I am willing to take on a team in every and any AL Only league.

I also have a new owner, Tom Giroir, available but I would like him to be in a league with me so I can help him along.

Bob:

That's fantastic news. SPARKY welcomes you with open arms.

Please invite your friend Tom to join SPARKY, too. Unofficially, that would get us up to 8 owners. (There's another owner who's thinking of taking a team in SPARKY, too.)

Thanks,
Randy

Anyone notice that the owners of Mike Trout all renewed?

Shane

You should be getting an email from a Geoffrey Brown. We are in the same ESPN league and he has expressed an interest in owning a Mocksports team.

Geoffrey is an active and knowledgeable owner so he should make a good addition to the Mocksports community.

Shane-

If there are teams left in SPARKY when the dust settles, I will take one.
