The National Association of Rotiserrie Baseball ( NARB ) league has just completed it's 7th year of competition. An unusally high number (4) of owners had to leave at the end of this season due to other priorities. I am currently recruiting new owners to join the NARB for the 2006 season. As soon as we have 4 new owners (hopefully later this month), there will be a draft held to form the new teams from the players available from the departing teams. The players available include veteran stars such as Josh Beckett, Brian Giles, Shawn Green, Ken Griffey, Todd Helton, Chipper Jones, Derrek Lee, Brad Lidge, Jimmy Rollins, Billy Wagner, and David Wright. Also available from these 4 teams are rookies and minor leaguers on the rise such as Garrett Atkins, Gavin Floyd, Jeff Francoeur, Cole Hamels, and Andy Marte. If you are interested, please e-mail me at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
and I'll give you more details. Listed below is a brief summary of the essentials of the NARB.
