Canseco just rolled last night, 29 of our 32 owners returned and 2 of the 3 open spots were pre-filled at the time of roll. That means just one opening is left -- if you sign up, we start playing tomorrow!
The available team is actually pretty good. The Former Detroit Franchise
(plays in the AL North) has never had an owner stay for more than 6 seasons and could certainly use someone to come put their stamp on it. But, regardless, the team won 85 games last seasons and has a solid, flexible ML roster. Things get more exciting in the minors -- 6 straight sub-.500 seasons has set the franchise up with a bunch of high draft picks that will soon be ready to make an impact at the ML level. Last year's #15 pick is a future top-end SP who is still only 19 (Terrence Taylor
). The season before that, they took a SS with the 10th pick (Bret Martin
). The year before that, a very promising 3B (now 21 years old) at #7 (Brian Knowles
). That last guy could even be Beyonce's cousin! YOU MIGHT GET TO MEET JAY-Z!. The seasons before that they took an SP who is now 22 and ready to be an impact ML starter (Evan Fordham
, whose splits are 80/79).
Bottom line: this is a good team that gets you into a great world and we start up as soon as you sign up. Please sitemail me with any questions.
