  • Richmond (VA)-area NL only league looking for owner

    10-team, NL only 5x5. Teams can keep 5-9 players; players can be kept up to 3 years. Auction.

    This is not an expert, high-stakes league. The auction is done through Internet, but we're looking for owners in Richmond-Washington-Norfolk for eventual conversion to face-to-face auction. We've found that far-flung league is too hard to maintain, as owners have no interpersonal interaction.

    We have three openings this year. None of the abandoned teams finished in the money last year. Instead of assigning the new owners to a team, the league will create a draft pool consisting of (a) all potential keepers from the abandoned teams (this includes Bumgarner $7; Freese $2; Prado $15, Bourn $12; J. Garcia $2; G. Sanchez $3; R. Franklin $6; Strasburg $21) and (b) any potential keepers thrown back by returning owners. There will be a pre-auction snake draft where the incoming owners each can claim up to 9 keepers.

    This is a very equitable arrangement, which is consistent with the league's culture, which doesn't include a lot of jerks.

    Serious inquries only.
