The Big Sky Alumni will be ending our season soon and we have 3 confirmed openings for the upcoming season.  This is a very high quality world with an active blog.  All 3 owners who are leaving are leaving because of personal time constraints.  Many owners who have left the world for time reasons have come back when they wanted to add teams.

NL South Memphis Marauders <a style="color:black;" href="">Memphis Marauders</a>

Memphis was a playoff team in the previous season but had a down season 28 (the owner blames his own time issues for bringing the team down).  Just under 11 million is committed to major league contracts next year with some young arbitration players to build around long term or deal.  The minor league system is solid as well, one of the top 5 systems in the just released top prospect rankings on the blog with Davey Unamuno being one of the top position prospects in the league.  This team could easily win their division next season and be set for years to come already.  You could shape this team however you wanted.

NL West Sacramento Stars <a style="color:black;" href="">Sacramento Stars</a>
Sacramento has only had one owner in the BSA and is due for a complete rebuild.  They have just under 14 million in contracts due next season, so they are not in bad shape financially.  They have some decent prospects in the system and some definite ML contributers with SS Lyle Boyle leading the way.  They also will have the #1 pick next season.

San Fransisco Sea Lions <a style="color:black;" href="">San Francisco Sea Lions</a>

San Fran was the #2 seed in the AL this year and will be the favorite to win their division next season.  But their minors are depleted so long term they will need some rebuilding if you like to stock up the minors.  Just over 36 million is committed to salary next season so their salary is not inflated and free agents could be signed or you could decide to rebuild fairly easily.

We're now in the World Series, so we'll be looking to move forward VERY soon

The World Series is over and we'll be rolling soon.  San Fransisco is left, the #2 seed in the AL with its talent returning.  There are also 2 other owners who still haven't reupped so there is always the possibility that we could have another opening, so jump in on the wait list while you can.

We have one more team that appears that it will be open after a long term owner failed to sign back up before roll over.  If we do not hear from that owner today, we swill offer that team as well.  Sacramento and San Fransisco remain open and are ready to fill now that we have rolled over today.

If you are looking for a challenging league, BSA would give you just that. I enjoyed my time general managing SF and would recommend the league to others.

The former Memphis franchise has been filled.  We are looking for one more owner to take over the former San Fransisco franchise, a team that is ready to win now.  We have a potential owner lined up, but there is still time to get in if you are ready to start right now!
