I believe there have been at least two mergers recently.

The Harold Baines League and Lou Whitaker League merged into the Satchel Paige League.

And the Catfish Hunter Salary League was mothballed/retired (no longer exists).

I think at least one other merger took place, as well.

Chris has found a way to retain both merging league's history (well, at least a link to the old league's player card so a player's history is not lost once merged). And that was the hold-up.

So it is not fair to say there hasn't been any updates or progress. There may be more available teams, but that is not due to no effort on Admin's part.

Kill the Andy Messersmith League. Only three active owners since 7-26-18. 10 teams are unowned. There is no reason for this league to continue to exist. 10 of the teams bailed on this league in July.

Tommy John League Merge candidate. Eight active owners.

Albert Pujols League. Another merge candidate. Only seven active owners.

Harmon Killebrew League Nine active owners.

Andres Galaraga League. Eight active owners.

Tony Gwynn League Nine active owners.

Gibson Feller League Candidate to be shrunk back to 16 teams. 11 active owners, 13 inactive.

Killing the one league and merging these six others, with the GFL shrinking, will put the looking for speed league replacements teams list to less than 60 (potentially even less).
