    No, I just have an infant and have been doing Daddy Daycare for the last week and a half -- I have no concept of spaceor time, also checking on last minute trade items. What time is this due? I really have no idea...

    Also, if I were being melodramatic it'd be more like:

    You'd be jumping the Guardians anyways, so don't get too far ahead of yourself.

    They traded for Pujols and opened a keeper slot. I don’t think they actually picked yet.

    That was a trade, my dude...

    @Gemini Joe has agreed to a trade with @Wang Chi

    • The Zodiac Guardians receive Infielder Albert Pujols and jokes about how his last name is "Poo Holes"
    • San Francisco Six Demonbags of Chinatown acquire a 3rd Round Supplemental pick
    We don't even have a year yet either... think that's not until keepers are declared too.

    The Family Madrigal Keepers

    Hard decisions for everyone except Walter...

    FK: Walter Johnson
    KS: Billy Hamilton ($IB5)
    KS: King Kelly
    KS: Christy Mathewson ($IB75)

    I am going to grant Aaron Judge his unconditional release and let one of you reprobates grab him. I want to see the look on Ahsoka's face...

    Me thinks the year won't be announced until after the draft is over?? Unless I've misheard. Which is entirely possible.

    yeah, we decided the year range (1955-59) but only inty will know the exact year until we're done drafting.

    I'm sure this will lead to you playing the entire year under protest.

    Unannounced but we also obtained the rights to the recently released Dottie Hinson from Sithi.

    Allowing us to sign Shaq as Bryce as Dottie Hinson (yes I actually played in that) to our staff.

    Keepers are...

    Franchise Keeper: Ted the Head Williams
    Keeper 2: Shirtless JR Jackson
    Keeper 3: "Suck It Narcs" McGraw
    $80 Keeper: Ross Barnes
    $75 Keeper: Fred Carroll + Ghost Monkey + Hatred of the Bay Area
    $75 Keeper: Deacon Phillippe

    ... I think you mean 1st - 5th round draft pick forfeiture, instead of $IB75 apiece... right? :p

    /narc

    Congrats on Dottie Hinson though!

    That was the rule last year too I believe. One paid keeper, the rest you have to buy with draft picks.

    Don't quit just because of that. You can make things work, I'm sure.

    Just don’t remember it, forgot the campaign waged against more keepers. I’m dumb lol. But need to retire anyway.

    It’s fitting we go out getting narc-ed on!

    Give the 1906 Cubs his spot.

    Edit: in seriousness though, if Lloyd is actually out and we decide we really need an even number, Inty importing the team that actually won the WS in the year we play in, doesn’t feel like the worst idea.

    i'm gonna put it out there that i'd be fine with lloyd keeping those guys. this feels like an honest mistake, the trades seemed a lot more fair to me than what he got last year, and i don't want us to have to undo them and try to put this whole cat back in the bag. plus i want lloyd to play. i understand that the rest of us were operating with the knowledge that we only got one $75 keeper and so it's not exactly fair to everyone, but it's still the most preferable solution imo.
