"Donít ask me what I want it for if you donít want to pay some more"

Taxman Ė Lennon & McCartney

 I thought this quote was somehow appropriate.

Another song title that fits is The Times They are a Changiní

In case you guys havenít heard, my vacation plans have changed. I will not be going to LA, and, in fact, will not make it to Vegas until Friday. I got some bad news from my accountant. That means I will not be playing golf on Wednesday or Thursday, and I will not be going to the Stars game Thursday night. (Sorry guys, but one of you is going to have to take the point on this one.)

Iím now getting into Vegas at 8:35 a.m. on Friday, which means Iím still in for golf and Pizza on Friday. My return flight to Austin, the only one I could get without paying a shitload more money, is at 5:35 p.m. Saturday. What that means is that the draft will start at 10:00 sharp, and Iím gonna keep things moving because weíve got to finish by 4:00.

Before I get to the real reason youíre all here, I need to tell you that Glenn and Terry pulled off a trade just under the wire last night. Glenn sent Kirt Manwaring and Scott Radinsky to Terry for Kris Benson.

And now, the protected rosters. One thing I need to point out, all links to previous rosters, either on the main page or in newsletters, have been removed.

See ya Friday, either on the golf course or at Bautistas.

Jim.
