Thanks for the update above Bilfert! I'll get the first page updated this afternoon, and will send out a league # today.

Here's where we stand, needing one owner to replace flash1821. 11kwyetman28 is taking a second team, meaning we're full again when we get one owner for that vacancy. To accommodate two-franchise owners, that new owner will have to choose from the remaining National League teams — Rhode Island, Cheyenne and Cleveland. The Taint will pick one of the two left after that, and my NL team will be the one that's left.

Four owners' second franchises will fill out the AL. They will choose their second franchises in a draft using reverse order from the earlier portion of the draft (I'll take the last remaining team). Those picks can be made any time, in order, choosing from Los Angeles, Dallas, Cincinnati and Massachusetts.

We need one owner to take Rhode Island, Cheyenne or Cleveland, and we'll be full.

Rhode Island chicks dig the long ball. Cheyenne might have the easiest goals of any team in this league. And Cleveland is the perfect franchise for your inner ony LaRussa. Not much in this game more fun than beating some $80M/$100M payroll teams with your measly old $40M. Not to mention the end-of-season joy of adding $60M from the waiver wire.

Don't be stupid,
Be a smarty,
Come and join
The USA party!

hey josh you still havent picked a team yet you shouldnt get the scraps in both leagues i dont mind at all if you pick first of the 4 teams that are left
9/27/2012 3:02 PM
Give me the Cleveland Cream Puffs.
9/27/2012 3:58 PM
I agree with eman go ahead and pick Josh
9/27/2012 4:01 PM
That's the spirit ConansDad, thanks for filling us up!

I'll snag the Dallas Double Plays for my first team then. Waiting for the previous league # from support so I can set up the league and link it. If I don't get that by this evening, I'll set up a new league and they can be linked after we start.

NL Teams remaining: Rhode Island, Cheyenne. I'll take whichever The Taint passes on.
Al Teams remaining: Los Angeles, Cincinnati, Massachusetts
AL Picks: 1. eman7400; 2. 11kwyetman7400; 3. Yaz_Benders
9/27/2012 6:24 PM
ill take cincinnati classics 
9/27/2012 8:32 PM
I'll head down I-91 10 miles and end up in Mass. and get my heart broken again
9/27/2012 9:36 PM
Yaz gets the AAA then, and we just need The Taint to pick from Rhode Island and Cheyenne. If anyone wants a second team before they choose, post here and one might give up his spot.
9/27/2012 11:09 PM
I'll go with the Clutch.  Will be fun to try and win 9th inning games.
