We will have three four five two ONE opening for our upcoming season 22.  Here are the open franchises:

http://www.wisjournal.com/HBD/Pages/Popups/FranchiseProfile.aspx?fid=2971 (TAKEN)

This once proud franchise has fallen on some hard times as its longtime owner has had to leave HBD with some health issues.  You will have the opportunity to rebuild one of this world's best franchises, which has four WS appearances and two championships.  This franchise resides in the NL East.  They have always been (and will remain) the Washington D.C. Homestead Greys.  bbqjason, a founding member of this league, has rejoined us by claiming this squad.

http://www.wisjournal.com/HBD/Pages/Popups/FranchiseProfile.aspx?fid=2946 (TAKEN)

Our next franchise has been a bit of a nomad, moving to several different cities with limited success.  There are a couple of good pieces here, but this franchise needs some work to become competitive in the AL North.  They've most recently been the Toledo Rays.  trsnoke has claimed this squad, which he previously owned for several seasons.

http://www.wisjournal.com/HBD/Pages/Popups/FranchiseProfile.aspx?fid=2954

Our next franchise has enjoyed a very nice recent run of success, making six straight playoff appearances (five division titles) and advancing as far as the World Series in season 19.  But, they've fallen back to .500 the last two seasons and are looking for the right owner to return them to the playoffs in the AL East.  They have been the Buffalo Colored Giants.

If you'd like to inherit a 102-win team (and who wouldn't), here's your squad.  The owner, jptrainwreck, is staying with us, but taking over another franchise that he previously owned.  The cupboard is plenty full here for another deep playoff run from the NL East.  They're currently the Charlotte Black Hornets.

Finally, another very solid franchise in the AL South.  This squad took home the title in season 17 as part of four straight division titles, and has seven winning seasons out of the last eight at the ML level.  They are currently the Memphis Red Sox.

But wait!  There's more!  Just found out that another owner will not be returning.  One of the best Negro League franchises ever, the Indianapolis Clowns.  The previous owner led them to four straight playoff appearances, including a WS appearance, before they fell back to .500 this season.

We're looking for experienced owners with some track record of success to take over this these three  four five  two franchise.  Please sitemail me if you're interested, and see the very first post of this thread for the world rules.  Thanks!

NOTE: anyone interested in the Charlotte franchise (NL East), waiting for jptrainwreck to make the switch.  Should happen later today, but this is for those who have already received invites so there's no confusion about which teams are open.  Thanks.

jp made the switch.  Charlotte is now available.
8/2/2012 10:18 AM
Lots of action the past day or so, but still four openings as of this morning.
8/2/2012 11:08 PM
For those of you who may have been in this world previously, some familiar names are returning to the fold this season.  bbqjason and trsnoke have rejoined us, and we expect vdaino to jump back in shortly.  Come join us!
8/3/2012 12:38 PM
Down to three openings, as vdaino has claimed the Charlotte franchise.
8/3/2012 4:33 PM
And then there were two.  Better act fast!
8/3/2012 6:26 PM
Just one spot left.  Last chance to join one of the best worlds in HBD!
8/4/2012 8:19 AM
Who wants our last spot?
8/5/2012 7:45 PM
Going once...
8/6/2012 10:36 AM
Going twice...

Season 23 is upon us, and we'll have three openings for our upcoming season.  Here are the open franchises:

http://www.wisjournal.com/HBD/Pages/Popups/FranchiseProfile.aspx?fid=2964  This NL North franchise has returned to respectability after a few very lean years.  There are some talented young players in this system, in what is usually a very tightly-packed division.

http://www.wisjournal.com/HBD/Pages/Popups/FranchiseProfile.aspx?fid=2976  This NL West franchise is perfect for the experienced owner with a big competitive streak.  The NL West is our division of death, and this franchise dominated it until recently, winning 12 straight division titles, making 14 straight playoff appearances and winning three WS championships, until the streak came to a close last season.  Still some very good pieces here, but you'll have strong competition for a playoff spot.

http://www.wisjournal.com/HBD/Pages/Popups/FranchiseProfile.aspx?fid=2958  TAKEN Our lone playoff team available, this team was nurtured by long-time HBD owner dhomard into back-to-back playoff spots while playing in the thin air of Coors Field, which is no easy task.  He leaves this franchise in very good shape for the next owner. (dhomard returned to reclaim his playoff squad)

Please sitemail if you have interest or any questions about these three franchises.  Thanks!
