Mike Tyson retires ...He will be in the Hall Of Fame!
A staple of my Yankees teams, he died very suddenly. At least he didn't bite any of my other players.

Marvin Eriksen Sr. retires ...He will be in the Hall Of Fame!
HOF who saw his son become a judge and have a great family. Godspeed, sir. Just make sure to watch your diet.

I have to tax everyone's cash, process a trade, get the draft class loaded, and add some free agents, but aside from that things should be ready? You should be able to do roster exports now from the start.

So, I'd avoid sending in any FA offers, as things will drastically change before Tuesday, which is the tentative plan to open things up.

Additionally, I am planning on returning and taking the Giants. However, any of the PRIORITY open teams (open teams being a GM's second team, including the Giants) can be switched to provided all rules are followed (if you have more than one team it has to be separate leagues). You cannot take anything from your old team - players, picks, etc. You'll walk into a new situation. This is not like when I first took over.

If you want to switch, post here or the open teams thread. I prefer the latter.

@Trendy Bastard noticed something with premature aging of players. I'm going to dig into that over the weekend. Worst comes to worst I'll have to re-roll, but that's not a huge deal.

Of course the new rollover negated that, ha.

But if anyone got a boost and caught it between the first and second file, let me know, and I'll honour it.

no i actually got usable boosts to fontaner (ill just shoehorn him in at closer!) and a 4.5 star prospect. of course he plays no defense, but beggars cant be choosers at this point.

Fontaner is a 10-7-9, did his control boost?

okay, your PDev page is wrong, the other page/s are correct.

Everyone's PDev pages will be wrong, but that's the price of fixing things. They'll be accurate going forward.
