The Baseball Confederacy League recently began its 2nd year and is looking for new, highly active, competitive GMs to take over 4 existing teams (out of 20).
It's an interesting, somewhat complex, traditional 5x5, salary, dynasty league (partially) run on CBS Sportsline (during the season) and uses tiered salary caps/market segments w/ somewhat different contract rules/incentives for each tier/market and an annual prospect draft for unclaimed/unowned prospects. We use 40-man roster (w/ anywhere from 10-20 spots for prospects) and do NOT
rely on real life MLB contracts/salaries at all unlike many other dynasty leagues out there. There is a very modest $12 league fee for 2007 -- mainly for the cost of using CBS and for maintaining a traveling, championship plague/trophy.
If interested, please check the league forum site for details (eg. rules, league setup, etc) and fire me a PM or email or YIM me.
[url=http://tbconfederacy.proboards49.com/index.cgi?board=available&action=display&thread=1162490439]The currently available teams are:
Ann Arbor Addicts
Running Red Devils
To Be Named
Metropolis Magicians - probably allowed 1 free drop
And you can click here to find more details about them.
We recently completed our restricted FA process, and just went through our first big week of regular FA auctions. We just started our 2nd week of regular FA auctions, and there are still some very solid players available, including Michael Young, Pat Burrell and Huston Street for this week and Jhonny Peralta and Contreras for next week. But you'll need to act fast, if you wish to get a shot at most of them as bidding deadline for this week's batch of FAs is Thursday night (3/22) at 9pm EST. If needed, we could probably extend the deadline by 24 hours or so, but you'll still need to act fast if you want to be prepared to make good bids. Auctions are conducted blind w/ single silent bids made by interested GMs for posted FAs.
Again, please let me know asap if interested, especially if you want to get a shot at the remaining good FAs that are being auctioned this coming week. If you cannot find me fast enough, you're welcome to register to the league forum site and ask to join there -- please provide some info about yourself and your FBB experiences. Please also spend some time going thru the rules, including the various announcement posts that have some rules revisions/addendums that may not have been updated to the regular rules section yet.
Thanks for your interest...
