Then it's down to seeing the trade request when I go to the league page, and with ~10 leagues I don't spend much time on any one of them. It's my own fault but I'm definitely bad at this.

    Note if someone I know contacts me ANOTHER way - i.e. PM on here or text message or facebook message, etc, then I always respond quickly.
    I have a fantasy baseball specific gmail. You should try it bro.

    It's interesting that some RJrs are taking as much time responding to this thread as they do to trade offers...

    I have a close friend in one league who sits on trade offers for a couple of days and then will finally respond with "let me see how [your player] does for a few days." Every offer takes a week or more to get to the end result. Not surprisingly, while he's played fantasy baseball for 30+ years, he's still the type of guy who does all of his prep work, likely with a fantasy magazine, a couple of hours before the draft.

    And off on a tangent, this same guy always comes up with kooky strategies, both in fantasy baseball and fantasy football. This year's strategy in our redraft league was "skip on starting pitching and draft 6 middling closers." His best SP is Adam Wainwright. Again, not surprisingly, he's in the basement. I offered him a solid starting pitcher for one of his middling closers and his response was, wait for it......"let me see how he does this week." LOL.

    That's a good idea to try. I will try to switch over to that. Will all the main fantasy sites let you switch your email address mid season? I don't know if nfbc will, you login with your email.

    For your good idea I got you a coffee cup:

    You might have to reach out to Greg or Tom and they will change your email. Not sure, but I did the same changeover a few years ago

    I reached out to their support this morning to try. I've moved over my CBS email along with onroto and fantrax.

    I guess nfbc doesnt really matter much, it's not like I'm getting trade requests there

    LOL that wasn't meant for you--it was meant for someone else in our league.
