This is my year folks, I'm selling all of 2021 for this year and then quitting. Oh wait probably should wait to say that until June.

i was attempting a joke. i'll come back unless something really odd comes up in life and i have no access to internet/a computer during that time period.

also as illustrated by my horrible collapse last year, i've been reluctant to sell out to win. i believe i was as high as 2nd during last season (did i ever make 1st?), didn't buy any guys and dropped to like 13th, snuck into the 7-12 playoffs and got 2nd in that. i had a decent team, just probably should have bought some help.

Selling out is the way to go. Sold out hard in 2018 and bought every ace pitcher available and won. Used every 2019 pick on hitting and muddled my way to a mediocre staff, then sold out again for more pitching. Not sure of a strategy yet this year, would try the same thing but already using my first pick on Cole. Hurts the hitting to not have a top 20 bat.

I'm apparently blind. What day r keepers due? What day is the unofficial start to drafting? I see the schedule say 3/2, but we usually start well before that.

Keeper Rules:
Deadline - Participants must declare their keeper intentions privately to the Commissioner by Friday, February 21st.

Typically the draft starts the Monday after.

False. Monday-ish I will try to get the final pre-draft Drafty done, possibly Tuesday. Draft will start Tuesday/Wednesday.
