Gotcha.  Just seems weird as he was pumped about the league and very active.  If he wasn't coming back I'm glad we found a replacement so quick.

I talked to Dan, the Reds owner, for that info.  He forwarded me the messages where Geoff told him he would not be coming back. 

I am more than aware of the waiting list.  All 3 of them were contacted on Saturday and asked if they would like to join.  They were given a deadline of Noon Monday so that I could start to fill teams in other ways so that we can be somewhat close to full for the draft.  GR80 has declined to join the league and Billy has still not responded 3 days later.

Thanks for the update.

To my knowledge we had 30 committed owners and 29 completely active owners at years end. Since the baseball season doesnt kickoff until April a lot of guys simply take some time off site after the long year.

I am in another league on another site with Geoffthescout, he has not indicated to me in any way he wasnt returning to this site to finish his rebuild.

48-96 hour windows for people to respond when theyve already signed up and indicated a willingness to return, im just not positive thats in the leagues best intetest. Thats why we have open forums and discussions before we take permanent actions.

The draft is layed out, any team not making a pick is to be auto picked, it doesnt say replaced. With all do respect to Dan, ownership in Bush league and recruitment wasnt up to Dan.

Be careful here. This is/was a healthy and vibrant league because of hard work and discussion.

I will fall back & watch where all this is headed, ive given my 2 cents.
