[USML Announce] 2004 League Configuration

Several owners -- including me -- do not want to add two owners.  I'm not
sure what the majority view is though.  I don't like how thin the talent
pool gets with 11 teams.

I say let's have both Jim and John follow up.  Although I was the person who
suggested that we only add one player, I would be happy to add two if they
are both interested.

The person that I'm thinking of is my brother in law, Josh Siebert.  Josh is
also a big sports fan and a fantasy sports league junkie.  On the positive
side, he does live in Chicago.  He's a computer programming and support
person at Turtle Wax so he would help reduce the number of lawyers in the
league.   The negative side is that my sister (his wife) is a little upset
with the number of leagues he participates in although though that's mainly
during the football season.  One other note - he would take over the
youngest owner title as he is just turning 26 in February.  Do you want me
to check with him or would you guys rather pursue John's option first?

The one hangup might be the draft- he'll be in Florida during the first

Please respond to 

I thought that Jim B. and John F. both offered suggestions last go 'round.
I agree with Rich that we should resolve this soon.

League sentiment seems to be that we should disperse the Riptorns roster
have a new owner build from scratch. There also seems to be a consensus
around the idea of adding not more than a single owner for the upcoming
season. That being said, it's time to get serious about finding a new
owner. If we don't get a new owner, we will need to expand rosters and
with related matters like draft day budget, ceiling, floor, minimum IP and
AB etc. Does anyone have a serious candidate to suggest?
