Major Leagues - Season 26 - Full Topic

Major Leagues is currently simulating the World Series and will be rolling over soon. As of right now, it appears we will have 2 openings. This is a very competitive world with great owners and lots of long term stability that usually rolls over very quickly. 

Private World Rules
* City & Team Names remain the same for the entire life of the league.
* All minor league teams must be tended to. No pitching 0(0) pitchers.
* All owners shall treat each other with respect. Joking allowed, but rants/insults will not be tolerated. Nor will blowing up the chat board in any inappropriate manner.
* Owners who fail to win 55 games in a season face expulsion but do have the right to appeal to a committee of owners.

AL East

Baltimore Orioles
Season 25 record: 67-95
Projected Draft Pick: #6

Salary Commitment: 70 million in season 26 for 12 players, 51 million in season 27 for 9 player, 24.6 million in season 28 for 4 players and 11.8 million in season 29 for 2 players

This team has been stuck in a rut of winning 67 to 79 games for 13 straight seasons. The minors are in decent shape and there are some good players on the major league roster to build around. Lack of pitching depth has been the major problem holding the franchise back from getting over the .500 mark.

Recent Top Draft Picks

Season 24, #13 pick,

Season 23, #9 pick,
SS Woody Brown

NL South

Atlanta Braves
Season 25 record: 50-112
Projected Draft Pick: #1

Salary Commitment: 7.2 million in season 26 for 1 players plus 19 million in dead money to a released player, 7.2 million in season 27 for 1 player

This once proud franchise has fallen on tough times the past few seasons. But with no long term salary committed, the number one overall pick in the draft and a few top prospects in the minors, this is an excellent chance for a good owner to build a winner for years to come.

Recent Top Draft Picks
Season 25, #2 pick, SS Cy James
Season 24, #5 pick, P Wayne Counsell
Season 24, #47 pick, P Harry Butler

This world has a strong base of long time owners so turnover is minimal.  There are 25 returning owners who have completed 5 or more seasons in Major Leagues and 12 of those have completed an amazing 19 or more seasons in the league.  We added 4 new owners last season and all 4 are coming back so this isn't a league with a bunch of revolving doors.  Take one of these teams and whether you love them or hate them you will know who you are competing against year after year.

Atlanta franchise has been claimed.  Need someone to take Baltimore and we will be ready to start.

Come on. This is a team capable of contending for the playoffs with a couple of smart moves. Someone has to be up for the challenge.

***** This is an EXCELLENT league! *****

Major League theme, high quality owners - no nonsense, 55 minimum win rule overseen by a board of several members, no drama

We are full unless one owner who has been MIA for the past few days doesn't show up to reclaim the Texas Rangers.  If you are interested in taking that team if he doesn't reappear soon, let me know.

Great franchise available in Texas. Huge bat and a young player in Lucas Ford. Very good young pitcher in Santo Mota. Also, you get a very high draft pick as well (#7). Great team to grab for someone as this team will be young and competitive.
