I've pretty much decided on my players, I just can't decide on a decent wild card.

The first game in Japan starts at 5:05 a.m. CST. Shouldn't the deadline to get entries in be the 24th at midnight?

Can we make transactions before the season starts that don't count against our four?

I would think you can make changes until the contest thread is locked at the deadline by editing your original entry.

I wanted to give people a full week to make their entries. Since it's a full-season contest and we have restrictions on the first & last weeks, I'm not going to worry about the one game before the deadline.

What NC said. If you have any changes to your roster before the deadline, just edit your original post in the entries thread.

Dobson PM'd me his corrected picks and I edited them into his entry, so he should be good to go now.

Okay, no problem. When I passed his entry in the thread (while entering WC picks), it was still the same. I'll go back and update my database. :)

We have 42 Derby teams this year.

Looking over the lists, I'm surprised no one picked Morneau this year. Might be like when no one picked A-Rod last year. Time will tell. :)

I'm sticking with the NL only strategy again. I have to handicap myself a bit so I don't make this embarrassing for everyone.



Or something.
