Guys, I am not concerned about the adds/drops money yet. I just updated it so that we would know where we stand.

The numbers I show are up to 8/31. I did not count anything for september.

I could have made a mistake too - just let me know.

Ooosh says that the "next 25" line on yahoo is bs and there may not be 25 per page. I was counting by 25.

I am sure as hell not counting 28 teams again.

So count your own if you think I am off, please. Happy to use the honor system.

Count all of them please - not just july or august.

If you think I am missing an add/drop payment, feel free to note that in a response with the pertinent details. I created the button so that you could pay the add/drops and the month at once - saving us $$ for the final break, but if you did not do that then I could have easily missed it one way or another. So let me know.

No rush, no hurry.

Congrats.

If you think I am missing something, feel free to note it AND give me the pertinent details.

Thanks!

The funny/sad thing is that I spent hours last night building that spreadsheet and counting all 28 teams by adds and then by drops and then counting them again...

......................................

I will reinstate Riversoule's team and I will pay his fees for the month.

I only ask that everyone please keep your adds for 7 days. It doesn't have to be to the minute, ok? But on the 7th day.

Quoted for truth.

The number of self-entitled whiny ingrates who care more about "winning" a better baseball card than having fun is pathetic. It is probably best that I leave it at that. I do applaud you for sticking with the leagues Houdini.

As for the remainder of your post, I'm not smart enough to come up with a solution to the problem or even a fair suggestion. Hopefully the people in that group can find a way to work something out though.

Wow that sucks about riversoule, IMO just play the week out as it is right now. Really theres nothing else you can do. Just go with 13 spots in the break draft and use whatever tranaction money he has paid and maybe sell the ball he won to pay for his share of the break.

I guess I'll be seeing Houdini's Horrors next week!!!

I am hearing that there is a mistake clause. That you have few minutes to drop a player after you pick him up - and he wont go on the waiver wire. Is that true?

It does not change our 7 day rule, but it does explain why the 2 day waiver did not activate.

Regardless, the person who picked up Leake the second time cannot be faulted since he was not on waivers.

On the couple times I messed up and added/dropped to early I frantically tried out how to fix it before coming to you with my tail between my legs -- I couldn't quite figure out how to, unfortunately.

Perhaps yahoo.ca works differently than yahoo.com?

Payment sent. Thanks Houdini for hosting this. Too bad things got wrecked or people exposed loopholes. As someone who didn't win one week, it was frustrating to keep pace with the massive add/droppers, but those were the rules. I'm sure we will figure things out.
