The Mauer World is entering season 20 and we are looking for a few owners who enjoy a world that has little drama, low turnover, and rules to ensure a level playing field.  Here are the rules of our world.

Private World Rules

1. Voting
If the world is voting for a new rule to be instituted it needs 2/3(21 owners) to be apporved for the world. All owners are strongly encourages to vote. Voting in done by trade chat to prevent bickering on the chat board.

2.Vet Commitee
If a rule has been broken a Vets Commitee consisting of 5 owners(including the commish) will come to a decision if a owner needs to be removed from the world because of a rule violation. The owner who is up for removal can make a case for why they shouldn't be removed from the world. Then the Vet commitee would discuss and vote on if the owner should be removed from the league.

Member of the Vet Commitee

3. Minor Leagues
Minor League teams should have enough players to field a competive roster, and not have pitching staffs that are at 0%. This takes the fun out of the game even though it is the minor league level, and by having your batters facing pitchers with 0% you don't get a good feel of how your prospects are performing.

4. Minimum Win Rule
In the mauer league there is a Mimimum win rule of 58 wins. If an owner fails to reach 58 wins the Vet Commitee will decide if the owner should stay in the league. This rule is in place to prevent tanking for high draft picks, and to keep the world competitive.

5. Rule Changes
As we go into future seasons of the Mauer World we might find that we need to add new rules, or modify established rules. If this occurs any new rules or changes to established rules will be up for discussion after roster expansions to the end of the season. That will give us a week to discuss new rules, and rule changes. Then we would vote in the time between the start of the play in series and the end of the divisional champoiship series.

Here are the teams looking for new owners.  If you are interested in any of the teams post on here or contact me by sitemail.

Team #1 AL West-  http://whatifsports.com/HBD/Pages/Popups/FranchiseProfile.aspx?fid=4559                                                                                                                         If you are looking for a major rebuild look no further than this team.  This team will pick 1st overall in this years draft after a 54-108 record.  This team also picked 1st in last years draft, so this team has a very well stocked farm system.  Going into this season only 4 players have a contact worth more than 1 million giving the incoming owner extreme payroll flexability.  TAKEN BY BIGSAMMICH
 
Team #2 AL West-  http://whatifsports.com/HBD/Pages/Popups/FranchiseProfile.aspx?fid=4558
This team will pick 2nd overall in this years draft after a rough season of 58-104. This team is also in the rebuilding mode with decent prospects in the minors.  This team has some talent at the ML level but not enough to make a serious playoff run.  Lots of payroll options to make this team your own type of team. TAKEN BY STONEWALTER

Team #3 NL North-  http://whatifsports.com/HBD/Pages/Popups/FranchiseProfile.aspx?fid=4564
After a 60-102 record last year this team will choose 3rd in this years draft.  This team has had 8 consecutive losing seasons stocking the farm system with talent.  This team only has 3 contacts over 1 Million, with one of them being a Max 20 Million contract.  The player with the contract is a pitcher who is 29 yrs olf with a rating of 81.  Lots of flexibility to bring in some FA's or go to the international market. TAKEN BY ZEUSTIS01

Team #4 NL East-   http://whatifsports.com/HBD/Pages/Popups/FranchiseProfile.aspx?fid=4570
This team has made the playoffs in 8 previous seasons but has fell on hard times.  The team has the 10th overall pick in the draft after a 73-89 season.  This team needs some major TLC to bring it back to it's former greatness.  This team is a few years away from competing, but has talent in the minors to make some noise in the future.  TAKEN BY ELAN_M_M

Team #5 AL North-  http://whatifsports.com/HBD/Pages/Popups/FranchiseProfile.aspx?fid=4549
This team went 86-76 last season an will pick 22nd in the draft.  This team has had 7 consecutive seasons of above .500 with 13 overall.  This team has been well taken care of by the same owenr for the first 18 seasons of this world.  This team has great ML talent to make a run to the playoffs. TAKEN BY JACKSGAME

Team #6 AL West-  http://whatifsports.com/HBD/Pages/Popups/FranchiseProfile.aspx?fid=4560
This team had a great season finishing with a 98-64 record.  Will pick 29th in the upcoming draft.  This team has made the playoffs the last 4 seasons and it will only take a few additions to return.  This team dominated their division winning by 32 games.  Great talent with little work to be done to once again win the division.
