The completion of roster checks will be confirmed/announced by an admin once we are satisfied it is complete.
I understand we have more FA groups to get through this year, but feel like we are starting a little too early. I'm not sure how much overlap there is with MLB FA and our FAs(haven't had a chance to check but some of the big names like Cruz and Sandoval come to mind), but I'm sure there is plenty and knowing what team/situation a player is signing onto in real life can have an impact on their fantasy value. We started FA on 12/11 last year, which is exactly the date that the MLB Winter meetings end this year (12/8-12/11). Most of the key signings start there and then the middle tier players go shortly after.
I guess my proposal would be to hold the Amateur draft first this offseason and then start FA around the time of the Winter meetings. The 2014 drafted player values are pretty much set and would not change from now until February, whereas FAs value can change based on their real life moves from the start of our proposed FA period to February.

Well I'm glad everyone likes the proposal, but can I make one last request while I'm at it. I will be going away to visit family in India from 10/22 to 11/13 with limited access to the interweb. Can we start the draft 11/17?
