    --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.
    --We still need two new owners. If you are a regular poster and have an interest in historical simulations please apply here.

    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.

    - 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.

    Mark - MapleSyrupMan took the Phillies already. We need managers for Washington and Kansas City. Post #36:

    --Still need an owner to run the Senators this year. If anybody is interested please let me know. The time required as an owner in training for your first season would not be a greta deal. It would require more of your attention in your second season (starting sometime in the real baseball offseason), when the Sens are disbanded and your expansion team takes over.

    Mark - Who has what team? MapleSyrupMan took the Phils, but then you told Hank he could have the Phils, and I never saw anything more.

    For DoubleX: Don't forget to add your post to the Rosters Thread. Just copy the Quakers roster and make any necessary changes in preparation for 1963. I am going to delete the Quakers roster once this happens.

    --MSM has the Phils and HA86 the A's. We still need an owner for the Senators. I've kept the current owners updated in post 1 of the discussion thread.
