Hey guys- I am definitely interested in continuing the league, but may need someone to take over as commish. We are expecting our 2nd child in early April, so that will severely cut into the time I have during baseball season.

Is anyone interested in being commish? You would have to coordinate with the other owners to see who is coming back, fill any open teams, get the keeper lists from all teams and enter those players and their values into Yahoo before the auction. (I have printed out everyone's team and 2011 values, so I can get you those lists.)

Let me know if you are interested.

I'll be back if things get worked out. The team I took over last year stunk but it was interesting and I've been looking forward to the 2nd season.I've no interest in being commish but good luck working that stuff out.

I'll also be returning if the league keeps going. My team was hampered by inuries last year but that happens. The beauty of an auction format is that a lot of quality players always reenter the draft pool.

After further review I think I will be able to remain commish, so the league will be back. One change I think I will make starting this year would be any player picked up during the auction remains at that value all year, even if dropped.

In the past any free agent started with a value of $0. Now if a player if picked up in the auction for $5 and dropped, then another owner picks up that player later in the year as a free agent, his value would still be $5, or $8 if kept into next season.

This will make it much easier for me to track player values into future seasons.

So when does this new FA policy start? I know a picked up a few guys last year that I was looking forward to having on the cheap this year.

I would assume this year and that anyone you picked up last year would be under the old rule.

Correct. Anyone picked up as a FA during the 2011 season would be $3 to keep in 2012. The new policy on FA values starts this season.

That's cool. I understand how difficult that probably is so I don't blame you for making the change. Glad we're are getting a notice and that some late season strategy will still pay off.

After playing here the 2010 season, I had to leave this league early last year due to personal reasons. Those have been resolved, and if a spot ends up open, I'd love to have it. Either way, thanks,

I would certainly be interested in taking over a team if one opens up.

Yeah, I think your actual team is still available. I'll be sure to include you in all league communication.

You are first on the list if a team is available.

Nobody took it over? You guys just finished with 11 teams? Sorry about that. Anyway, thanks!

I restarted the league tonight, so anyone in the league last year should have received an invite.

A few points:
- I set the auction for Sunday 3/11 at 2pm EST. I can adjust this later, but just grabbed an arbitrary date (that doesn't interfere with March Madness).
- If anyone in the league last year will NOT be participating this year, let me know ASAP so I can get a replacement.
- Once you sign up for the league, I'll email your team roster and 2012 values. Use this to determine which player(s) you want to keep.

I think we have 4 people yet to reclaim their teams. I'll give them another few days before we start looking for replacements.

We are up to 9 teams back. Still waiting on Redsfan 320, SeasonEndingInjuries and Incredible Hulks. Hulks owner told me he'd be back, and I'm assuming Redsfan320 will be back (right?). Haven't heard from SeasonEndingInjuries yet. If he doesn't come back, I'll offer that team to PlusPlus.

I haven't actually joined yet due to some technical issues, when I said I was in I meant that I would play, not that I was actually on yet. Sorry about that. Anyway, I'll get on that as soon as possible.

Are we still drafting this Sunday, conscious that we're still only showing nine managers and I guess all of those have already confirmed their keepers?

Can those managers still intending to play take up their teams straight away?
