Doesn't matter what the stats are but we should probably have a hard date to make the decision what our stats will be so that we can make a decision on who our keepers are and to make trades before March 17th. I propose making Feb. 28th the deadline for stat confirmation so it gives everyone at least 2 weeks to make trades and put together a final keeper list.
Anyone kinda find it funny how Chris Davis' grand slam was his 4th home run on his 4th at bat, driving in 4 runs, causing the O's to win by 4 runs on Opening Day, the 4th game of the season?If that's not Earl talking from above...

Teams have come and gone, players have peaked and fallen, champions have been crowned and dethroned, and fun was had by all. It's an honor to be the commissioner of our league and I hope to help keep this league alive for many more years to come!Now for the nitty-gritty....we have a few things on the agenda. Here they are:1. We are looking to change our league's scoring settings. This has been debated for the past couple years. The main change is moving away from batting average + on-base percentage and replacing it with either on-base + sluggling OR batting average + on-base-plus-slugging.Frankly, I have no idea which way to go. I'm slightly leaning towards OBP+SLG instead of AVG+OPS since OBP and SLG are more different from each other than AVG and OPS. The reason is because AVG is incorporated in to OPS via OBP whereas OBP and SLG have little to do with each other.Let's try to settle this issue as soon as possible. This should be priority number one.2. We are going to stick with 5 player adds per week. This worked well for us last year. A guy like me who likes to add and drop guys like Duquette and Showalter can get a little carried away. This keeps things reasonable and, again, worked well last year.3. We are still keeping 8 players per team. I'm aware that we have talked about dropping the number to six but for this season we must keep it at 8 because everyone planned their rosters for keeping 8. However, we can discuss changing this for the future (even though I think 8 is a good number as each team is keeping roughly 1/3 of their previous year's roster).4. You can view your 2012 roster here. Please try to get your keepers in as soon as possible. It's less work for me to get this done early. Also it helps people plan more thoroughly knowing who is off the board. Further, you can always let me know you want to swap people in and out all the way up to 24 hours before the draft.5. Note that our two new managers, Jon and Stephen, are taking over PurplePoe and Ingles teams, respectively. Guys, make sure you understand that you're taking 8 players from those two rosters.++Off the top of my head, that's really all we are looking at. Here is the draft order (remember, it's flip-flopped...so first is RevTim, second is Ravens, third is Scooter, etc.). I think there were a few 1st round picks traded. Not gonna go and look now but, if so, that obviously changes the 1st round as the player receiving the pick will pick in the spot of the guy who originally held the pick. Yahoo automatically accounts for this when I start setting things up so I'll let you know the deal once all 20 of us are in the league.That's about it! Let me know if you have any concerns and I look forward to draft day, which is (tentatively) Sun Mar 17 7:30pm EDT. Please, please, please let me know if this doesn't work as soon as humanly possible. Yahoo draft spots fill up quick and I want to get the draft date and time settled early so we get a good time and day.Good luck and let's have a great season!
