Hey Musk, good to see that you made the jump. It will be interesting to see if any of the other BYTO death pool crew did the same (hell, maybe I can win by default, or not).

I'm sticking around. It looks like I might need to personally knock off some of the people on my list to retain my title though. (I apologize if anyone is offended by my reference to killing people for death pool points.)

If Twins can't re-sign Hunter, plans are to trade, sign a FA or go in-house to find a replacement.
