I might be interested, but I have a couple of questions:

Why no interleague play?  Is that option not available?
I've never seen the "career winning %" draft slotting formula.  Did you just make that up or borrow that from another league?  If it's borrowed, how did it work out?  Is it based on the franchise or the owner?  What happens if an owner switches franchises?  Or if a new owner takes over an existing franchise?

I thought you all might be interested in an archive of articles from the old baseball magazine "the sporting life". I've included a link to the front page of an 1885 paper which describes the sale of the buffalo team to Detroit, an interview with King Kelly in which he describes a bet with Charlie Buffington, a box score and description of the game between Detroit Wolverines and New York Giants (pitcher Lady Baldwin is batting cleanup!) and more fascinating features. If you are into "rounders" you have to check it out: http://library.la84.org/SportsLibrary/SportingLife/1885/VOL_05_NO_24/SL0524001.pdf
The library.la84.org website has other publications too, including baseball magazine which started in 1914.

I'm interested, but not committed yet. I don't have time right now for another team but might have in month or two.
