Not too late at all dude.  Tell us about yourself.

best thing on my resume is probably my Augusta Penguins team in Josh Gibson. Took a **** team and have now won 2 world series in a row. I've been in the Bench and Bo Jackson worlds a few seasons now and took mediocre teams and are now contenders every year. Won a world series in Bo Jackson last season. Any questions for me?

Well I'll answer any questions you guys have, would love to join. Seems like a very competitive and entertaining world

Talk a bit about how your turned the "****" team around.  No need to give up trade secrets, but give some sense as to your managing, budgeting, etc philosophies.

I see brewsbrother is in the world series. We are bitter division rivals in Bench. I think he'd give me a good review.

Well, I think you can successfully rebuild a team without being one of those 'tankers' and trying to stockpile high draft picks. I have certain types of players that I like and I would actively go find them on other teams and try to work trades for them. I also purged my team of the type of players I did not like. I signed one stud ifa that first season I took over, but after that I just kept trying to improve my ML squad through trades and free agency. I guess my overall philosophy on turning around a team would just be to make good progress at the ML level every season in regards to wins and also runs scored/ runs given up.  My payrolls tend to be higher, but I understand what a team needs to contend for a title and if my team is close I don't hesitate to spend some cash. I don't spend recklessly, as every time I have had a high payroll my team has been in contention.

Budgeting....I find advanced scouting to be 99.9% useless. I usually only scout one of the college/hs scouting. IFAs are nice, but I like to find more cash efficient ways to spend if possible. Especially if I think I can be competitive in that season. 

Not sure if I covered everything, but if you have some more questions I'll gladly answer.

Ditto.  Light years ahead of the three other smelly turds we had to choose from.
Yea, mine too.  Even though I already let him into the league.

Well, that was fun.  I'm not adverse to putting ol' mitt on the ballot but, like his cousin Romney, I don't think he wins.   Voting ends today when I get back from the gym.   Just don't know what time that will be.
