    i want to first apologize to everyone for my long extended absence as medically I have been undergoing extensive issues, from the spinal fusion and decompression and replacement of three broken vertebrae to a staph infection caused after. I have sent both Ty and NT a message letting them know I am stepping down, it is not fair to take a spot of an MLB team from a deserving person when I don't know when I will be back.

    I have been thru 3 surgeries since the staph infection and have a fourth pending. When they went back in it was discovered due to the infection and the screws in my back I ruptured a disc in my back and severed a nerve to my leg. I will begin intensive physical therapy after and will be undergoing this for at least a year. My nerve is dead in my left leg but they are hoping to re stimulate the muscles to compensate for the nerve. The disc needs to get done as it was the issue apparently causing the staph as the contents was spilling into my back and was causing septicemia or blood poisoning and lead to the staph. I will at this time be withdrawing from all leagues until such time as I am physically capable of rejoining any of them. An absentee owner is not fair to anyone that might want those spots. I will try to get on TSO when I can but most days the drugs and surgeries have me so tired I don't want to do anything but sleep. I wish you all the luck and hope to see you all in the future.

    I know we usually don't you use the group tag but since today is the first time I've felt okay enough to do a little talking I wanted to let everyone know what was going on and why I have been away.

    Good luck in the future and I hope to see you all again when this all gets resolved.
