I skipped last year because uh 2020, but am happy to commish if other people are interested. I've done it through Yahoo before, which seems like a mostly OK free platform. Probably draft first week of September? Interested?

Maybe, depending on what work is doing. I don't really want to manage more than one team, and my work league would probably take priority. But I haven't heard anything yet from anyone at work, so maybe there won't be one.

I might be down, if there’s need for one more, but last year I kinda forgot so I don’t want to take up a slot from someone who can be more committed.

I'm definitely interested. We had a Yahoo league last year that I was going to reactivate, so if you wanted, I could just add you to that, or I'm willing to encourage last year's participants to join your league.

Oh no, that'll work. Should I mail you?

I'm in. :) And I will pay more attention than I have been to baseball, sorry folks.

I joined! I did baseball 2 years ago and started the season paying attention but didn't do so well towards the end...however I hadn't done fantasy baseball in 15 years and was generally not as good with it. I have consistently been doing fantasy football in that time period (and can much easier keep on top of the game schedule vs baseball), so I look forward to competing with honor this time. (Hope I can make the draft time, will keep an eye out for updates)

If anyone is interested, we have a couple of slots open! The link to join is in a comment above.

hey folks, I am definitely up for it! If I join right now though it'll make it an odd number teams, which might be annoying-- will hold off for now, or if folks would rather I will risk the annoyingness.

In my opinion, you should join! If the commish or the group think it’s too awkward, I’ll drop out!

Well that is generous of you! I think bye weeks would be more fun than anyone having to bow out, though...

It doesn't sound like work is going to be doing anything, so I'm in here. Are we planning a draft?
posted by kevinbelt at 6:24 AM on August 30, 2021

Looking forward to the draft this Thursday night! I will let others confirm but just checked and it appears there are 11 teams, so room for 1 more? In case others here were still waiting it out

Hey, sorry andruwjones26, I did hop in when I saw kevinbelt’s post, so kevinbelt, spot no. 12 is yours here
posted by ibmcginty at 10:19 AM on August 31, 2021

So actually, I don't know if I'm going to be able to do this! I've got a conflict on Thursday, so I won't be able to be at the draft, and I don't think I'll be able to prep a draft list before then. :(
posted by kevinbelt at 11:21 AM on August 31, 2021

Yikes, my apologies folks—if we don’t get up to 12, please do go ahead & withdraw me, I should’ve held off til it was a sure thing we had 2 more.

I was going to skip this year because I'm a mess, but it looks like I was automagically reactivated and now we're at an even number. The fates have spoken! I've got a conflict tonight so I'll be on autodraft - letting y'all know ahead of time so no one mocks me too hard if I wind up drafting one of the folks I was ragging on last season. :)
