    Not to shoot down your ad here, but what a dumpster fire of a keeper list...

    I can't imagine playing in a league where other teams get to keep 10 players and you go into an auction with Wynns, Morales, Mazara, Cahill, and Jones as the only players worth keeping at their established prices. And even some of those are iffy.

    Seems like some concessions need to be made for anyone to pay to take this team -- like an aggressive expansion draft or an arbitrage based waiver draft of some free agents back onto this team, or something along those lines.

    redirecting a bit, but what I've usually offered in these situations is to pay 0-50% of the entry fee depending on how reasonable I think it is that I can actually compete that year. In a league with one-year keepers, paying some percentage seems like it ought to be enough, the aftereffects of having a bad list once shouldn't hurt too much if at all in a couple years.
    In the best of times, our days are numbered, anyway. And it would be a crime against Nature for any generation to take the world crisis so solemnly that it put off enjoying those things for which we were presumably designed in the first place, and which the gravest statesmen and the hoarsest politicians hope to make available to all men in the end: I mean the opportunity to do good work, to fall in love, to enjoy friends, to sit under trees, to read, to hit a ball and bounce the baby.

    Well they agreed to accept Canadian dollars...so I might not try to push it further.

    The last 2 teams who joined started with an empty roster. I can arrange for someone to take over this team from a friend so at least they have some options at keeper.

    Also, THIS team gets to keep 10 players. Others are anywhere from 6-12.
