Mantle - Season 22 - Two Openings Topic

Mantle World will be rolling into season 22 sometime in a couple of weeks (August 27-29 or so).  Chronologically, it is the third oldest world in all of HBD and will be the first private world to roll to season 22.

Mantle was without a doubt the finest public world in all of HBD for it's first 17 seasons and has since become private, making us one of the finest private worlds in all of HBD. We traditionally have among the lowest turnover from season to season (high of 7, low of zero) of all HBD worlds (public or private), and have had 9 original owners who have been here since day one through our first 21 seasons. We've even had a couple of original owners come back after spending a couple of season away from HBD altogether.

Mantle is world #5, and consistently sims within minutes of the start of each cycle. You can set your watch by us!

Since turning private, Mantle has adopted the following three rules that all owners are required to abide:
  1. Each team will need to win a minimum of 110 games over a rolling two year period.  Failure to meet this requirement will result in forfeiture of the franchise to a new owner at the end of the season.
  2. After the trade deadline has passed, teams may place no more than 7 players on the waiver wire at any one time.  This is to avoid flooding the wire with players in order to try to "sneak" players through after the deadline.  First offense results in a warning.  A second offense will result in forfeiture of the franchise to a new owner at the end of the season.
  3. Owners are expected to keep their minor league pitching staffs in good order, i.e. no running chronically fatigued pitching staffs at any level.  An owner in violation of this rule will be given an opportunity to set things straight.  Failure to address or correct the problem within a reasonable amount of time without a valid explanation will result in forfeiture of the franchise to a new owner at the end of the season.
We have at least two confirmed openings for S22.  If you are interested in being placed on our waitlist, please either post here or send me a sitemail.

With Richmond losing, it will be 21 seasons in a row without back to back World Series champions.  I think that's impressive.

Probably don't need to bump, but just in case something unexpected happens, it's always good to have a longer waitlist.
