    Just a quick update everyone. My wife and newborn son are just fine, everyone is healthy, and if all goes according to plan we will be coming home Saturday afternoon. Thanks for understanding everyone.

    I updated my roster on yahoo by picking up the players that I drafted. That's alright isn't it?

    Really? I wasn't aware that would work. That makes everything a TON easier if so. Everyone just go to Yahoo and pick up those players you've drafted and ONLY those players you've drafted and we'll be good to go. I'll send out a PM to that effect (to everyone but Larry). Oh and I'm back guys. My son and I watched our very first Pacers game (and a win at that) together last night, and are watching our first Colts game tonight.

    Well, I don't know travmil's preferences. I don't know why Trich sent me his...I'll make Trich's pick and then travmil said to skip him so...yeah...
    You were the lucky random choice - I knew Travmil would be away for a couple of days, so I thought I should add in someone else. Thanks for making the pick!

    OK. We've obvioulsy had a misinterpretation of my PM here. Players have been picked up as free agents that have not yet been picked in the draft. As of right now, I've locked everyone from making any drop/adds and I'm going to fix the rosters. The people that were picked up and not yet drafted will have to be dropped to waivers by ME and won't be available for pickups until a two day waiting period has expired. Hopefully I locked everyone out in time.

    [edit] On first look it's not going to be that hard to fix. [/edit]

    [edit2] I think it's fixed and everyone is free to start adding their players again. If I missed something please let me know, and report any and all problems to me via PM. I should be able to fix most any roster problem. And remember, add with care. [/edit2]

    I dunno...I just realized I really do have an empty spot. I'm used to playing with three bench spots so this all seemed natural.

    I want to drop a player I drafted and pick up another. Can I do this yet?

    Seriously, shouldn't we just stop the draft and pickup whomever we need now since we are playing games?

    I'm fine with that. Who really cares at this point about who they get?

    I think we are forgeting about the rest of the draft and picking up/dropping players at will.

    Who said anythign about doing that? That's not fair if you pick up someone who another manager would have liked to draft. Once again, YOU SHOULD NOT PLACE ANYONE ON YOUR TEAM WHO YOU DID NOT DRAFT IN THE DRAFT THREAD!!!!! I think I've been pretty clear on this.

    For example, I've just made my last official draft pick, but I still have one empty roster spot due to being skipped while my son was being born. I'm waiting until after the fdraft to fill it because that would be unfair to fill it now and grab a player that someone else was going to draft after me.

    I'm sorry if I stepped on toes. Since we were playing for real now and the game was going in full swing and I wanted to make some moves, I didn't know what to do in regards to making the nessesary moves. I asked on this thread, and I assumed you saw the multiple posts I made since you had signed in after I posted. I assumed that your silence meant you approved. I understand your situation and understand why you couldn't reply right away. It is extremely obvious that a new child comes first. The game was going on, I wanted to make a move, I didn't hear anything, so I acted.

    I would also point towards the understanding that we were going to stop the draft early and pick up our last player off of waivers back when we thought that the games would start on week one. Since it was cool then (and no one had any objection when I suggested it again) I assumed it was cool.

    I appologize.

    Yeah, I kind of have, I'm sorry. I'll get on to it and try to keep up with it.

    Hey, I did win the fantasy pick'em thing, though, I think.

    Just an FYI, you can set every single lineup from today to the end of the season in advance if you wanted to, so if you don't want to check it very often you can set up your entire week on Monday if you prefer.

    Btw, I can't believe you picked up Rashard Lewis. We might as well pencil you on for the championship...those are the clutch moves that win you the key games in April. Gotta have patience...

    We'll see. Billups is still out for a few more weeks, so I have two dead spots. I just got waxed 1-8 by Miller4ever. Hopefully I've built enough of a lead in the playoff race that I can hold on to Lewis.

    I guess I'm saying that I'm fielding trades for Lewis.

    With as bad as my team is doing I couldn't afford to hold on to him for 2-3 months, especially when I had already done the same thing for Gasol. I had to let him go. I figured someone who could afford to do it would carry him.

    My guys continue to underperform in every league - Yao Ming gets injured, David ****ing West, Rasheed Wallace has been a disappointment - at least Luol Deng was okay for a while. And now I have Mutombo and Mikki Moore on my team, so things are looking up?
