If you would like to post an application for one of our potentially available teams, please post in this forum.
Information we will want is below .... Name (At least First) AIM/YIM/MSN/Email Fantasy Experience? Dynasty Experience? Contract League Experience? Teams you prefer in order (if none are listed below, you don't have to list a team you want as none are available at that time) They would then be offered to the GM on the waiting list 1st. You also don't have to take a team offered, as you can continue to wait on a team you want.

Can I suggest that we have existing GMs "adopt" the open teams at least in the short term? The Angels are in pretty rough shape, the White Sox have an ok prospect list but incomplete roster, the Rangers have a lot of holes, and the Orioles don't have a prospect list but have a pretty good major league roster. I'm concerned about being able to find GMs as we've seen a few check in and then get turned off by how much work will go into rebuilding and record keeping with these 4. Ideally it would be a temporary situation until a dedicated GM can be found. Collusion safeguards could be put into place, like no GM can trade with himself or make waiver claims between his 2 teams.
As the Angels are in terrible shape I would offer to take it on if allowed. My primary motivation is that the NL East is a beast with active owners while the AL has 4 open teams so it's out of whack. What do you think?

Not sure I am really open to this idea but I could be in the minority.
I would be okay with trying to fill out their rosters by finding guys in their minors but not really sure I am okay with allowing anyone to make trades/waivers move for them who is not their permanent GM.
I think we would be better off just trying to get the teams overall pages in better shape so a potential new GM would know where to even start from in regards to his roster and prospects.
We had a good GM for the Angels but he didn't like some things in the other league and quit there and here which was unfortunate b/c that Angels team is not awful and could have done some damage in free agency had he stuck around.
For what it is worth, as a newbie I agree with the Mets idea on some level.
I was about 10 hours deep of message board back and forth; trying to find who was on what team when I just about pulled the plug on this thing. I know the other recruit the Mets found backed off because of the same issue.

I think getting the best daily roster out on the pitch, from what they have.
This would include promotions from their minor system, but NOT waiver claims, trades and FA bidding (due to potential conflict of interest)
To me the issue with allowing waiver claims or fa bidding is not conflict of interest as much as potentially giving a future GM a player/contract they do not want. Its just not something I think we should do but combing their minors and trying to fill out at least a competitive roster couldn't hurt for sure while also maybe getting their minors in better order and what not so a potential new GM isnt trying to figure it all out on the fly.
Making sure the roster was active and cleaning up the prospect/transactions records was my original intent. While there are very few active MLB free agents available right now (Jon Rauch? Sean Rodriguez?) I suppose you wouldn't want to set that precedent. If the Mariners want to tackle the Angels, I can help out somewhere else.
Yeah I'll take on the Angels, make sure they have the best team it can field on Fantrax daily, plus clean up the minors and old roster move as well.
When I came here in May 2011, the former Yankees GM was doing that for the Phillies. He was setting the daily lineups and checking old trade records for potential owned players. He had seen that the Phillies had acquired prospect Justin Smoak from the Rangers in 2009 and had just done a callup on him right before I arrived. He also called up C Lou Marson who I just non-tendered. lol. I guess one for two isn't bad.
2010: 109-136-19 .449 (4th NL East)(previous GM)
2011: 106-125-21 .462 (3rd NL East)(took over team May 2011)
2012: 107-125-20 .464 (5th NL East)
2013: 125-121-30 .507 (3rd NL East)
2014: 162-101-13 .611 (WON NL EAST - WON NL)
YankeesGM-ElGuapo: We've been told we pick 8th in the Dispersal Draft, but we can't find the actually list. Under what heading do we look? The list we see just has teams by division on it with no particular order.
Jan 20, 2015 19:29:16 GMT -6
YankeesGM-ElGuapo: We now have the list. Thanks. But we can't actually find it on the League Page.
Jan 20, 2015 20:46:09 GMT -6
YankeesGM-ElGuapo: We go to the Draft Central Category, then to Dispersal Drafts. But after that we don't find any lists, just the previous drafts and one that reads 2015 but does not show that list

GM Phillies: Here's the link to the "Taken Players of San Diego Padres and Pittsburgh Pirates" showing all of the players selected there in previous drafts.

Marlins GM (JoeyTTU01): If anyone knows of anyone looking for a league please point them this way. Thx.
Jan 21, 2015 16:13:49 GMT -6
Marlins GM (JoeyTTU01): Just to be clear we WILL be starting the DD on Monday and if there are open teams still we will figure out what to do we could draft for an OPEN (not INACTIVE) teams.

rushmore (LAA): when does free agency begin, just curuious
Jan 25, 2015 10:24:14 GMT -6
Marlins GM (JoeyTTU01): Re-Signing: February 1, 2015 until February 15, 2015 @ 11:59 PM CST. Free Agency February 24,2015 @ 12:01 AM CST. Is current plan.
Jan 25, 2015 17:34:40 GMT -6
YankeesGM-ElGuapo: So, we have Cano and Choo re-signed, right? That's all we need to do, having taken over the team not long ago? Don't want to miss any deadlines we were not aware of...
Jan 25, 2015 18:39:24 GMT -6
GM Phillies: Yes, your contract on Choo is good through 2015 and Cano through 2017. Nothing needs done with either until the off-seasons after those contracts expire.
Jan 25, 2015 20:10:17 GMT -6
YankeesGM-ElGuapo: Thanks. That's what we thought. Just making certain, so we don't inadvertently lose our players.
Jan 26, 2015 6:08:06 GMT -6
YankeesGM-ElGuapo: Yankees have a trade posted for the #7 DD pick. Once it's approved we can make our #7 and #8 picks. We are ready with our selections.
Jan 28, 2015 7:53:53 GMT -6
YankeesGM-ElGuapo: Yankees made 2014 DD picks: John Sever SP/PIT with #7 and Ryan Butler SP/SD with pick #8.
Jan 28, 2015 14:06:55 GMT -6
GM Phillies: Nice strikeout rates on both of those pitchers so far.
Jan 29, 2015 1:51:15 GMT -6
YankeesGM-ElGuapo: Yeah, we particularly like Sever, especially that deep in the draft. We could have probably saved him for the FYP Draft. heh
Jan 29, 2015 5:11:58 GMT -6
YankeesGM-ElGuapo: What's up gents? Did we get a new GM today?
Jan 30, 2015 19:41:28 GMT -6
GM Phillies: Got a new GM for the Nats. You're no longer the greenhorn. lol.
Jan 30, 2015 20:11:38 GMT -6
YankeesGM-ElGuapo: Uh, yeah, we are still very green -- and definitely horny. We'll no doubt make a ton of mistakes. Don't fully grasp the rules yet.
