Excellent. The contracts make sense. I'd like a team if you'll have me.

This is an online auction on March 31st.  Contracts are 1 to 3 years by default but you can extend by adding $5 per extension season after the second season.

For instance, Muncy at $2 in 2018 ... kept at $2 in 2019.  Prior to the 2020 season, he can be a) cut; b) Kept at $2 for 2020; c) Kept at $7 for 2020 and 2021; or d) Kept at $12 for 2020,2021,2022.

I don't need to know about the player contracts, because I'm intrigued. I'd like to be one of the 2 replacement owners and I'll be active, provided you give the 2 new guys a bigger part in the process of the teams we inherit. I'll commit to the 2nd pick in the first round of a 15-round snake draft of the 2 combined teams' players. I've been actively playing in consecutive seasons in my deep, home, Auction, Keeper League since before Syd Thrift liberated Bobby Bonilla from the White Sox and Doug Drabek from the Yankees. Also, since Heath sold out we've used OnRoto for our League Server.

How long are the player contracts?

0 to 15 keepers (just to clarify). We are far enough in that we don't have a minimum number of keepers.

Each team may protect up to 15 players between
major and minor leagues on its roster from the previous season, as long as all
long term contracts and option year obligations are met.

12 team NL only 5x5 $260 cap. 10 round reserve draft. Minor leaguers contract doesn't run until they are on the ML roster. You can email kostby at googles email and I will loop in Lynchmob to the thread as well.

AL, NL, or mixed?  Standard 4x4 or 5x5?  Keepers?  Single year?  Some basic details would help...:)  If it is NL-only I am interested.
