It’s that time of the year again! Send me your 2018 lists for the 12th-annual Celebrity Death Pool. 25 celebrities. Need to be fairly well-known. Either send me a PM or post it in a reply here. I'll notify you if someone on your list doesn't meet the criteria.

 

Lists are due by Monday, January 1st.

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

If you want to stick with 14, that's fine.

Can you count The Avengers? That new trailer looked like a bunch of them were going to bite it.
