In soliciting new owners, they mostly show interest only in the best available team (the other two aren't total dogs, but clearly have more work to do to contend). Would it be more fair (and more persuasive to prospective owners) to take all the players available for retention from the three abandoned teams and put them into a draft for those owners?
Other ideas are welcome.
I like this idea.
The teams don't belong to the new guys so it's not like one of them deserves the better team over the others. I think your solution is probably the most fair I've heard; generally people just randomly assign teams. But I like your idea better.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
