The NL South team (New Orleans) that is available had the same owner for 19 of 20 seasons.  Last season ML record of 65-97.  They seem to be in the re-building mode.  Last season Rookie league record of 49-27 with the star of the team being the 12th overall pick in draft, a fast 2B.   The Rookie League team ERA ranked 8th overall.  The AAA team was 78-66 with a team ERA ranked 5th overall.  This seems to be a decent franchise to start with.

The AL North team (Burlington)has had the same owner for past 7 seasons and only two owners over past 14 seasons.  They finished in 2nd place with a ML record of 78-84.  Middle of the road pitching (17th  rank ERA) and defense (16th rank in FPct.).  Bottom third in runs scored.  Seem to have some solid position players including Marc Harris a slugging 1B in prime (3 years experience).  HR past 4 years = 30, 51, 43, 35 w/ RBI = 79, 132, 140, 116.  They have a solid SS in Miguel Alvarez, a couple more guys with power (Ball and Nixon), and an underachieving lead-off hitter in Walt Bush.  They have a few holes to plug, but I like them.

Thanks for the posts mik182bre. For an owner looking for an opportunity at success, there are options available. There are also options for those looking to build/rebuild a franchise.
