2015 HR Derby Discussion & Transactions

Postby Southpaw19 » Fri Mar 27, 2015 6:37 am

Here is this year's discussion and transactions thread.

As a reminder to those who haven't joined yet, but have been meaning to do so, the deadline is one week from today.

Also of note, Cubs Fan Dan and TruffleShuffle still need to get their Wild Card picks in to me via PM.

In the event someone doesn't turn in a Wild Card pick, what ruling should I make?

(a) Select a random Wild Card
(b) Select the most selected Wild Card
(c) Select the least selected Wild Card
(d) Assign no Wild Card, and they get stuck with zero (0) for the first half

With 24 minutes left in the deadline... I've decided on option D. They will not get a Wild Card player for the first half of the season, and have the option to add one at the ASB.

I will post everyone's wild card choices later today. I do like the idea of team names to change up the standings a little bit. I won't make it a requirement however.

If you want to submit a team name, feel free to do it in this thread.

Good luck to everyone participating this season!
