    --1963 will be a training season using the 3 teams that have been computer managed in 1961-62. You'll be able to make lineups and so forth, but you'll have only limited input on who is on your roster. Actual expansion will be in 1964.

    I know I disappeared during the initial draft of this league (curse my computer and then my personal life), but I'd like another shot if you're willing to take me back.

    You dissappeared from this league and from the previous one, WCF. You also dissapeared from the "All Time Draft" project that you started in the History Forum after we had put quite a bit of time into it. Given that track record, I think you're asking us to do something pretty foolish.

    --Hank, you can pick which of the 3 doormats you'd like to use as your training team for 1963 (1961 A's, Phillies or Senators). You'll have that roster intact and will be able to sign any leftovers when the normal offseason activity is over to fill your holes (as best as you can with those teams and the remaining options anyway). You'll be able to create your own team to replace that one in 1964.

    Hank - If I were you, I'd take a serious look at the Phillies. They were horrible in 1961 and won't do much in 1963, but they put up some decent numbers in 1964 and could make you somewhat competetive out of the gate.

    I could be interested if you really need me, but I only have so much computer time, and even though I post pretty much every day, I'm also in the new version of the All-Time draft and the BBF Transaction game. This looks pretty cool, though.

    With a name like "Maple Syrup Man", you're bound to be a great addition.

    Is that a compliment or an insult?

    BTW, about what I said earlier, if Hank can do it, so can I.

    ... a compliment. I like mayple syrup, and it has the same sort of old home New England feeling as "Hard Cider", which is the name of my team.

    Maybe the Maple Syrup can be based out of Maine.

    Other suggestions:
    - Fighting Syrup
    - Maple Men

    If I can join, I could take any one of the teams, it doesn't matter to me.

    --Okay, Hank86 and MSM are in as "owners-in-training" then. You'll be running one of our previously computer managed teams in 1963 and have a limited availability to make moves. You can pick from the 1961 Phillies, A's and Senators. We are still hashing out whether or not you will be able to keep players off those teams when they are disbanded and replaced by expansion teams in 1964. Feel free to participate in that discussion. One more to go.

    How about the Sappy Crew? Sticky Nine? Pancake Toppers?

    Anyway, welcome to HankAaron86 and MapleSyrupMan! See, Hank, I told you to grab the Phils; now they're gone!

    --if we end up letting the expansion teams keep players off their training team then the Phils are clearly the best option. For just playing out 63 it won't matter much and the Phils are as bad as anybody could hope to be.

    You're right, Mark. Actually, I think the Senators have the best doormat team, as they stand now. But if the new owners can keep players, the Phils are definitely the best team.

    --Hank has selected the Phillies, so we just need someone to run the Senators this season.
