I figured since its the launch of the new board, I'd take the time to update everyone on the Fantasty League some of us are in, since we are now 1 month into the season...

1 Bierbauer's Polka 61
2 Jtown-Nad69dan's 60
3 Cleveland Steamers 59.5
4 IA Pirate 50
5 The Road Warriors 47.5
6 Chico's Bail Bonds 47
7 The Anteaters 46
8 PirateParrots 41
9 Rich's Best 38

I'm not sure who is who by the team names, but I'm obviously J-town-Nad69dan's

Some of my key players are Chase Utley, Nate McLouth, Rick Ankiel, Daisuke Matsuzaka, Josh Beckett, and Jonathon Papelbon

Oh, sure, you post this the day after you pass me for 2nd place...I see how it is.

Anyways, I'm the Cleveland Steamers, and I am actively seeking starting pitching since Liriano was sent down and Cueto isn't the stud I thought he would be (and was promised he would be by some Cincy friends). I think Cueto will be great down the road, but I can't carry him and Liriano. Oh, and I also had Gorzo, but I cut him.

My offense is led by David Ortiz and David Wright.

Chico's Bail Bonds is run by Argentum, who used to be Silver Anniversary.

Cueto has been awful since the Pirates beat him a few weeks back...

I had Willis, and he went on the DL...I had Mark Beurhle and he got killed on opening day...
I was worried anyone I picked to pitch was going to go on the DL

I wish pitchers hitting stats would count...I got Micah Owings on my staff

Ya, that's what I was telling myself last August. Then it became, "We'll get 'em next year". Now that it's "next year", I'm back to, "Oh well, it's early!" :)

Question for those in the league. We decided back before setting up the league that we would do it as a keeper league, with 10 keepers per team. Is everyone still kosher with that?

If so, do we want to keep all of our rosters up until next March to allow offseason trades, and then declare keepers a week or so before our next draft, or declare our keepers at the end of this season. Also, the trade deadline is set for August 10...we can bump it back 2 weeks or get rid of it all together since it is a keeper league (might benefit teams lower in the standings if they want to get a keeper in exchange for rental players).

I'd welcome any feedback, and we will go with the consensus.

I'm up for it being a keeper league but I have to be honest, I'm very bored with the format of the league. Standings haven't changed all year and there is little movement. I'm so sold on head-to-head leagues because it changes from week to week.
