Commissioner's letter dated 11/27/19

Gents,

First, and foremost, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I am grateful for the friendships we have had throughout the years, and still amazed that this silly dice and card game has helped to maintain these friendships throughout the years.

In a unanimous agreement over the past week, we have a few changes coming our way. I believe we will be able to dispense with any rules discussion this spring. This is based on numerous emails and phone calls and having agreement from each manager. Here we go:

 

1. Jim is going to scale back to one team this year. He is keeping Chicago and he thanks and excuses Hawaii.

2. Bob is going back to 2 teams, dropping Arizona. This will allow balance in the league. Thanks Bob for taking on 3 teams last season. I know that was not the easiest thing in the world.

3. This should get us back to our old format of 3 divisions. Here is what I think it would look like:

West-
Bay Area
Southern Cal
Santa Barbara
Pebble Beach

Central-
Lancaster
Las Vegas
Cabo
Utah

East-
Chicago
St. Louis
Virginia Beach
Augusta

4. In response to having two fewer teams, I am proposing that the remaining Boston and Houston players not chosen last year are ineligible. The players on Hawaii and Arizona who are NOT graduating will be frozen for one year (2020) and will become eligible the following year (2021). Given that the grandfathered players are still eligible for 2020 and given all of the players from Houston and Boston already on Cabo or Utah, this seems appropriate and there is PLENTY of talent available. It will also infuse a bunch of talent in 2021 and allow people a year to plan for that.

5. Bob has volunteered to adjust the scouting sheet for us over the next few days. Thanks Bob.

If I somehow missed anything, please email me individually, not as a group. But I think this was all.

I am grateful to each owner for being willing to agree so quickly on this change. I am also ecstatic that Jim will continue to be an active member in the league. I look forward to a fun winter of scouting (I just got my digital copy of Baseball Forecaster today) and a "drama free" time of fun. We are a couple of weeks away from Strato releasing fielding ratings which should be fun.

On a side note, my son Nathan thought for years that our league actually played with "real money" ($275) and was astounded that it is only "Monopoly money". I don't believe he understands that it has nothing to do with money. It has to do with fun.

Eric
