This is a friendly, drama free world, with a fairly quiet chat board, entering our twenty eigth 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 decent. We occasionally get some season previews 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 past season, we had only one team finish with over 100 wins (104), and our one 100 + loss team finished with 102.
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 owner not being allowed to return the following season.
Minor League Stocking:
You must sign at least 15 draft picks and/or international free agents per season.
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.
Franchises may only be moved once during the tenure of a single owner. The exception to this rule occurs if an owner wants to relocate back to a previous location.
if you have any interest.
