Between last night and today, I audited years 2006-2017 in order to try to recruit former players to come back for the 2018 season. 34 Private Messages were sent. Let's see what happens. Fingers crossed.

Gotta admit, was feeling a little special when I opened my private messages. Then I saw this. #-o

IF we don't get any additional entries before the deadline on Wednesday, we will be at 20 participants. That is where we were the last two seasons ... so yay for consistency... ?

EDIT FOR MISCOUNT (and then edited again to add new entries) :: 21... 22... 23 we're ahead of 2016 & 2017!! :clapping:

2018 Wild Card Selections
If I got your pick incorrect, it is most likely correct on your team.
I just may not have updated my WC pick tab on the spreadsheet. Either way, let me know.

I say let entries still come in up until game time, but they can't use any of the WC picks listed.

I'm okay with this ... and even if they duplicate a WC pick ... there's enough parity to allow another repeat.
Originally I set the deadline as it was, to give me time to setup the scoreboard, but I've kept on top of it pretty well.

If they hit a lot of HRs; you'd feel excited. It would move you up the scoreboard because no one else has that player.

The problem is that he chose Yasmany Tomas, who's been sent to the minors.

He should probably be depressed considering Arizona is writing off Tomas as a bust.

Be excited you were “original”.

Be depressed you will probably get zero points from him
