    Just a quick note - if any owner needs someone to help with pullbacks or a draft list, I expect to be present Friday for the duration. I'd be happy to help anyone out who may need it.

      I know I'll be late. I'll review my eligible players and send you a pullback list.

        And since I'll be drafting (mostly) before you for a few years, I SHOULD improve on the 10-14 record vs. Legends in '68. Thats if we keep unbalanced schedule.

        On another note, how do I go about renaming team "Beleaguered Badgers"? If I can get new name approved before start of '69 I can reap benefits of selling all new Jerseys to our rabid fans.

          --If you want that to be your official name its no problem to make the switch. I'm guessing you'll still be at least somewhat bedraggled for at least another season anyway, although escaping the cellar is definately within your reach.

            I DO want the name change but..... it feels like I'm having more fun campaigning for the name change than I will probably have in getting the change. Does that make ANY sense?


            Meanwhile, will be looking up more synonyms

                Guys, just a straw poll, but I'm looking for some opinions. I've been working on changing the design of the web site on and off for a while. I have designed a new home page, but I have also done a slight update to the old to reflect the new league set up. If you get a chance, check them out quick and let me know which design you think works best. Most of the links on the old site will work fine; not as much on the new site will work, although some of the links will work.

                BTW, from the new website link to the Legends home page. I hope to eventually have a similar page for each team, but this phase is just beginning. Any comments, ideas or suggestions will be taken under consideration.

                New site

                Current site

                  I like the new site much better...clean and simple. Not sure about the pink though.

                      Quick question;

                      Those drafted before 1963, that are picked in the expansion draft, how long are they locked in for, for the expansion team?
                      AL East Champions: 1981 1982
                      AL Pennant: 1982
                      NL Central Champions: 2011
                      NL Wild Card: 2008

                      "It was like coming this close to your dreams and then watching them brush past you like a stranger in a crowd. At the time you don't think much of it; you know, we just don't recognize the significant moments of our lives while they're happening. Back then I thought, 'Well, there'll be other days.' I didn't realize that that was the only day." - Moonlight Graham

                        --Players drafted in 1961, provided they have not previously been free agents, are on year to year open ended deals. All players drafted in 1962 were free agents after 1967 and their contracts vary. Whatever term they were signed for, which should be indicated in the expansion eligible list.

                          New site is easier to navigate but I prefer the old one because it has these big, clunky Sega Genesis sort of images. I can't peel my eyes away!

                            Andy Kosco is listed twice by the Angels...don't know whether or not that's a violation although I'm sure it's an oversight.

                            The Diablos only have seven eligibles.

                            Round 1-3: Diablos lose a player (1)
                            Post-Rounds: Diablos pull back two players (2-3)
                            Round 4-6: Diablos lose a player (4)
                            Post-Rounds: Diablos pull back two players (5-6)
                            Round 7-9: Diablos lose a player (7)
                            Post-Rounds: Diablos pull back nobody? Pullbacks are finished?

                            So, technically, whoever has 36th pick automatically receives the remaining expansion eligible member of the Diablos, no?

                            Other question, after the pullbacks have been completed for Friday, they're done altogether, right? Does this leave expansion GM's in the clear to draft from whichever team they please?

                            Gibson, Josh - 67-69 Draft - .750
                            ? Who is this supposed to be?

                              Josh Gibson should be Russ Gibson
