We need one owner for The Post War Progressive League, which started in 1946 and will soon be entering it's 13th season, 1958.
The available is the Boston Red Sox. With 14 games remaining in the 1957 season, the team is 27-121. There is a 4 team WEIGHTED lottery for the first 4 positions in the 1958 draft. League rules have a minimum 40 wins requirement to participate in the lottery, BUT THIS REQUIREMENT IS WAIVED FOR A NEW OWNER, so the team will have a 40% chance at the #1 pick in the 1958 lottery.
The team will be a significant rebuilding effort for reasons I will elaborate on below. Consequently I will seek league approval towaive the minimum wins requirement for participation in the 1959 and 1960 draft lotteries as well
