I wanted to get a head start on filling the league this year... so far, we have 4 teams leaving. A detailed report of each team is listed below and will be updated every week or so. This was my first year as commish, and I think this is a great league. This is my 5th season. We've had 4 different WS winners in the last 4 years. A good mix of veteran and moderately experienced owners.
Here are the 4 teams available for Season 18...
Chicago Cocophonous Waves (AL North)
Current Owner - danknuggz (3 seasons as owner of team)
S17 Record: 90-72 (2ndPlace)
S16 Record: 103-59 (2nd Place)
S15 Record: 98-64 (2nd Place)
S18 Committed Payroll - $73,000,000
Projected Draft Pick - 26th
Notes - Good veteran team. Has good power in the middle of the lineup. SP may be getting up there in age but a lot of talent left in the tank.
Vancouver Spirit Bears (AL West)
Current Owner - shobob (1 season as owner of team)
S17 Record: 68-94 (4th Place)
S16 Record: 75-87 (4th Place)
S15 Record: 64-98 (4th Place)
S18 Committed Payroll - $8,750,000
Projected Draft Pick - Top 10
Notes - I think this team has the most potential out of any of the four. Great nucleus of young hitters. Pitching leaves a lot to be desired.
Syracuse Jack Wagons (NL North)
Current Owner - AndyT13 (1 season as owner of team)
S17 Record: 65-97 (3rd Place)
S 16 Record: 76-86 (3rd Place)
S15 Record: 49-113 (4th Place)
S18 Committed Payroll - $33,468,000
Draft Pick - 4th or 5th
Notes - This team has some talented minor leaguers due to poor record. Plays in the weakest division in the world. Prime position for a quick turnaround.
Wichita Linemen (NL East)
Current Owner - KPMcClave (1 season as owner of team)
S17 Record: 87-75 (1st Place)
S16 Record: 74-88 (3rd Place)
S15 Record: 79-83 (3rd Place)
S18 Committed Payroll - $96,000,000
Projected Draft Pick - 20th
Notes - Owner signed 2-3 high profile FA's last year but is leading in a division vacated by a long-time owner.
