    I did last year. A few different years actually. Doesn't seem to want to, although there was a moment of interest

    Yes. He's gone in both of our dynasty leagues now. I emailed him but have yet to receive a response. Like the other guys, I have no freakin' clue as to what happened, but I have my suspicions.

    that is a shame. I had great respect for him for what he did for the smaller league when I came in and he took the bad team and gave me his good team. Wish he was still in the league.

    hope he comes back, the one thing we know about him, is that he doesn't care about taking on a rebuild...

    @Chef99 @TKOSpikes


    what the fuck is going on!!! now the reverend is saying he is leaving!!! does this league have some absolute assholes or something... I cant imagine what is going on...

    this is getting ridiculous!!! if I can find another 30 league team, I would probably leave as well... but that's not something you can just find...


    But if we continue losing people, especially at the top, then it is gonna be hard to find more players...

    No idea. It would be funny, if not so destructive.

    Is it panties in a twist?

    I thought Paul, Jim and Andy have been more than great. My 2018 team was horrible. What's the fuss?

    I remember Braves in some trade discussions. Dude was hard to handle, but easy to laugh off. Other than that, aside from a handful of teams, I've really had no contact. I don't understand why they're in a 30 team league. They don't seem to have time for an 8 team league.

    I'm here for the long haul...if there's a haul at all, or will it fall? Better call Saul.

    I was pretty sure that I was dropping mbbrl baseball this year. Now, I'm not so sure.

    @MilkSpiller22 and @TKOSpikes - The collusion a coupla years back was obvious to me, and I did mention it to Paul a couple of times, but not strongly...I just figured that this is what happens in a 30 team league. I'm still in and I hope we can resolve this mess.

    Now - I think we need to discuss this - Is our Larry league on the up and up? You remember the guy who got caught cheating awhile back, I think he owned the Jays and owned another team under another name. So...Braves is in this league (Richmond Riders) and even though it's (arguably) legal, he tanked like a sonuvabitch last year. Whatta y'all think about this league now? I'd hate to end up leaving it...one of my all-time favorite leagues.

    Don't know what to say... Gonna ride out and see what happens.

    Baseball is the best fantasy. It's a shame this board is not interested that much. Even mbbrl has no feel to it.

    These massive leagues are awesome. Would like to see them prevail.

    I agree with ya, bro; here's another thing I can't understand...what is the point of cheating? What does that gain anyone? Does it make them feel better about themselves? I just don't get it, but I know I despise it.

    My main money league is coming up.

    I have second choice. (first round is slot selection/pick)

    I think the guy at 1 might jump back too. I might get the bullet.

    Not sure which way to go though.

    Trout (gambling with "decline")
    Yelich (I guess he is this good)
    Betts, Bellinger, Acuna... Hmm.

    If Trout is there, you have to pull the trigger. Otherwise, any of those choices are fine, imo. Can you refresh us on your league parameters ?

    If not Trout, I go Yelich. Dude is a monster when he's healthy, and I really wouldn't call him injury prone. That's where I think Trout is chancy.

    trout is such an easy #1!!!

    the rest, not so much... I think I could make a good argument for any of them....

    I would probably go Betts... But I would not even attempt to convince anyone to not take yellich… Yellich's biggest problem is health... But Milwaukee is a better place to play than atlanta or Los Angeles... So...

    honestly, in larry's league or park place, I haven't been competitive, so I haven't been paying attention to the league itself... Just my team, and how I can make it better... so I haven't caught on to any problems in that league...

    But the problem in all dynasty/keeper leagues, is that there is always at least one team that is built like a super team... and tanking is a necessary way to get better if you are rebuilding... Wish there was a good and fair way to prevent tanking, but there really isn't...
