A few teams have not checked in, or not paid. If you would like to be in the league this year, please post your e-mail address here. Returning owners, get your money in ASAP. Invitations to expansion owners will go out as soon as I can...don't miss out. If you need me to re-send the invoice, let me know.

I'm happy we've gotten at least 10 teams to pay. I have sent reminder notices to HHH and The Rain King. Hopefully they respond over the weekend and we can move forward with 12 teams for 2006...with just one new franchise. :)

Clive has officially been awarded the franchise of the "New York's 1.21 Squeakawatts".

If HollisHomerunHittaz and The Rain King don't come back this weekend (I originally said the deadline was yesterday) I will push for more expansion teams.

If you want to join the auction league, please leave your e-mail address in this thread. :)

I am giving "The Rain King" until tomorrow night to pay. If he doesn't, check your e-mail for an invoice first thing Monday morning.

The way it's working, I am sending an invoice from pay pal to everyone. As soon as the money hits my account, I know you've paid (as opposed to waiting for Jim to give us a list). So check for a message from me first thing on Monday, if Rain King doesn't pay by then.

Once a fee is paid, I'll send you an official invitation to join the league.

Hey, sorry I haven't checked this thread but I got your emails. I said a few weeks ago that I wasn't going to be participating this season, so whoever is next in line can definitely take my spot.

We're going ahead with 12 teams this year...which is what we had planned on last year but we ended up with 13 (the extra team was a friend of Snatch's, IIRC).

Sportsline.com assigned the new owners to teams, so the extra team (Notorious B.I.G. Units) is being disbanded, and their players dispersed to the auction.

E- Fantastic job, my man. This thing is running twice as smooth as last year. :)


Question- Minor League Auction order: Reverse from last year's finish? (I think it may say something about this in the constitution, actually, but I'm not sure...)

I agree. Except for some clarification on player values and keepers things should run smoothly. Last year really required a solid foundation be laid and I think that is why this year should run really smooth.

Yeah, reverse order of last year's finish. New teams first, last or in the middle?

We don't have any news teams, just new owners, right? If so, then the order probably shouldn't be affected.

True...we didn't disband all the teams and have an expansion draft...so that's fine...just slot them from last year.

E- if you can find someone to take HHH's team, he will let it go. It shouldn't be a problem, considering he has Felix Hernandez with a $5 base.

If we can find someone, I'd like to make sure that whomever takes the team over is pretty fantasy savvy...

He doesn't want to play anymore? What happened?

I can try to find someone...and have someone in mind, but am curious as to what happened?

He's got a much more expensive team drafting on the same night at the same time. He'll do it, but if we can find HHH a new home where he will be lovingly adored, he's willing to give his baby up for adoption.

Would he be up for a co-owner? Someone who can do the auction for him and help run the team this year, but still keeping ownership of the franchise as well? Then in 2007, the half-owner could get a full team of their own (assuming less than 100% return of owners) and HHH still has his team.

Just a thought...we had a couple of co-owners last year, too.

E- Sorry I forgot to get back to you- he would definitely be down for a co-owner. Is the guy you had in mind down for the team? It's already paid for and everything.

I'm going to Vegas in about 2 hours, so I won't be around until Monday or so.

No joke, Doug Davis at $1 and Nathan on an option at $14. And Buerhle at $9! I would sign him to two years in a heartbeat.

Seeing what he paid for Beltran though....

I'm going to Vegas in about 2 hours, so I won't be around until Monday or so.

Not a guy.....I know Randi from the other league was interested in a team. Her personal committments kept her from returning to that league this year...but she was interested in being in the Auction league if we had room. I will see if she is interested.
