This is a friendly, drama free world, with a fairly quiet chat board, entering our thirty-first season. We generally have at most four openings per season, which are almost always filled before or at least within a day or two of rollover. I, the commish, am dedicated to keeping this world fun and fair for all of our members. Although we prefer to get experienced owners, noobs are accepted. We have a good core of long-term owners who only want what is best for the world in the long term. Our blog
is fairly neglected. We occasionally get some season previews or draft reviews done, as well as a couple of other feature pieces. As a group, we have motivation to keep things fair, since way back in season ten we discovered and eliminated a collusion problem. It's been clear sailing ever since. We know the damage that cheating can cause to a world, so if you plan on doing some nefarious activities, please don't apply. For those who like parity, this world is one of the best! We regularly have only one or two 100 plus win teams and we rarely have more than one or two 100 plus loss teams.
We have some rules:
No franchise shall locate itself in a Major League ballpark with a combined effects tally of 16 or more plus or minus.
Failure to achieve 55 wins in a season or 115 wins in consecutive seasons at the ML level will result in a vote for expulsion from the world.
Prospect Spending Cap:
No franchise shall spend
more than 30 million in prospect money in any one season. Violation of this rule will result in the forfeiture of the most expensive IFA.
Minor Leagues stocking:
Each franchise must sign at least 15 draft picks and/or international free agents per season. Failure to comply will result in the forfeiture of the most expensive IFA signed.
Cash in trades:
No amount of cash in any single trade shall exceed the amount of pro-rated salary of the player(s) going the same way. To figure out the amount pro-rated of salary that a player will earn while a trade is pending, multiply his total salary by 0.0170455. Subtract the product of that equation from the pro-rated salary, and the difference (result of the subtraction) is the amount that can be sent.
We have one confirmed opening at this point.
the NL North's Philadelphia
will have the 24th pick in next season's amateur draft. This team has been run for 18 seasons very adeptly by a smart and savvy owner. They have one of the world's best young starting pitchers in Luis Mercedes
, a star veteran CF in Carson Cannon
as well as some other good young talent such at Paul Koh
and Marc Colin
. The previous owner wanted to set up the franchise in the best long-term interests for the next owner, so he acquired a good deal of good prospects to build a winner with. SPs Renyel Barrios
, Alex Jang
, Eli Lee
, and Javier Sierra
are a good group to grow with. RP prospects Del Megias
and Albie Campos
, 2b prospect Aaron Valdes
, and LF prospect Michel Maradona
round out a very deep prospect pool. With only 50 M committed to payroll for season 31, and 16 M for 32, the new owner of this franchise will enjoy a great deal of budgetary freedom.
