You're welcome. The Canadian appears blissfully unaware of the latest recruits needing invites. I couldn't find another way to sign up with the league number and password since the website update.

Okay I got a dental school friend to join us. I've played with him in another league for a few seasons.  Send an invite to Pete here:

We'd have 5 of course if the good Dr. had just signed up.

Quit your moanin' and complainin'.

Who didn't come back from last year?  I didn't play anything but baseball with you people for a couple years.

Abomination is pretty tiny.

I checked this out thoroughly and he's actually the right height and muscle mass IMO.  I think people are hung up on the torso joint/tooling and the immediate abs proportions around it. I snapped this pic on my way out the door this AM:

Marvel wikia lists Thor at 6' 6", Reed at 6' 1", Thing at 6' 0", and Abomination at 6' 8".  As you can see that would make Abomination the right size.  Possibly even a little too tall believe it or not.  Thing might be a little tall too.  Anyone who reads a lot of Marvel titles knows that the size of characters differs based on which artist is drawing them at any given time.  And you might even disagree with the official marvel wikia listings. Here's how Blonsky looked in his 2nd appearance:

If you put Abomination on the counter and stand back 5 feet and look at the figure, it eliminates the detail of the torso joint and you can see the proportions actually look pretty good.

I love the figure.

we still have one more wave - the Omega Red wave - then basically everything is switching under an Avengers or movie line banner

Thank you for the explanation.  No Omega Red wave up for pre-order on BBTS as of yet. 

It was there 1-2 months ago. I'm not going to bother searching BBTS because I hate their search engine and they fill their preorders last anyway.  But here is the EE link to the case:

But I cannot find a way to enter our league number in the join custom league page at Yahoo anymore.  Hate that stupid update they did a month ago.

Meeehhhhhhhaybe. I've been good doing just baseball the last 2 years. Takes up like half the year on its own. Need the break.

Yeah Jeff and Reconsgt played early on before you guys.

Did Chris Davis go undrafted?  I actually intended to take him, I usually had him in the past. Been waiting like 3 years for the breakout. He used to be 1B/3B/OF eligible with Texas but would hit like .200 and strikeout constantly. He was on my list though with the strong spring I just forgot to draft him.

Oh not for nothin, Davis is on steroids or GH or sumpin.

Thank you thank you it was a memorable season!!  This was our tenth season doing baseball at JD and this was one of the 3 most memorable.  Some of the highlights of the fantasy baseball decade:

1. 2006.  Last day of the season, Ichiro Suzuki owned by my high school buddy Chris, homers and knocks Scott out of first place.

2. 2010.  Not as happy. Brent employs the 1300+ inning trick and unseats me from first on the last day of the season. Memorable, but not as fun for me as the Ichiro deal.

3. This season.  Big injuries to most of my top players overcome by free agent pickups for the biggest win on record, streak of 5 straight years of being bridesmaid in 2nd place SNAPPED.

See y'all for season 11 in March.

I was really into them and then about 3 years ago a new wave came out and I noticed the figures were about an inch smaller than they had been.  It was enough that they didn't look good next to previous releases. So I just basically sold off like 100 figures. Marvel Universe more than ate up the freed up shelf space.

If I could find a Sandtrooper or 4 I might stay interested.  If I can't army build (even small numbers) I have no reason to collect.

You can find them on ebay for $24-25 shipped. That's the same price as paying gas and sales tax at brick and mortar.
