|With a new year come new beginnings for Mocksports baseball. After 128 seasons of yeoman’s work (give or take a season or two), Shane Greenwood has stepped aside as our Commissioner. (That whole “real life” thing, you know.) Fantasy baseball, like Nature, abhors a vacuum, so we are compelled to choose a successor to our esteemed Commish from among our only slightly less esteemed ranks.
We currently have at least one viable candidate – Rick Smetana, from whom you have received (or will shortly receive) a renewal notice for 2015 – but in the true spirit of Mocksports, any interested owner is welcome to throw his or another’s hat into the ring for consideration. The floor is now officially, if briefly, open for nominations/self-nominations, which should be directed to me either by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by private message (http://forums.mocksports.com/phpbb/privmsg.php?mode=post&u=157) in this forum. (Yes, that means “The Mysterious Crosley” is NOT a candidate.) To get/keep things moving for the new season that is imminently upon us, I would ask that any responses to this message be sent by Monday, February 16. In the event that multiple nominations are received, we’ll do a VERY QUICK voting process to choose the new LOATM (Leader Of All Things Mocksports).
As you contemplate the future of our beloved fantasy site, take a moment to consider the incredible amount of time and effort Shane has provided over the years for the collective reward of zero dollars, and keep your fingers crossed that we’re that lucky twice. Thanks, Commish!
