  1. Giving a bump now that the holiday weekend is over.
  2. That's odd. I'm not sure why. Either way, just DM me here or leave your email address and I'll reach out to you.
  3. The past two offseasons, I wrote about a crazy (seriously) in-depth fantasy baseball league that included... International Signings, 40-man rosters, Rule 5 Drafts, 40-Round Amateur Draft (yes, it took days), Winter Meetings, Twitter accounts, hundreds of players under team control from AAA to the Dominican Summer Leagues, contract negotiations, arbitration hearings, and everything else the real MLB has to offer. Since that time, we filled up the league and have been steadily growing. And now...it’s time to open some more leagues. But here's the best part. Two best parts, really... 1. The leagues are MUCH cheaper than the original one and 2. They are all starting THIS SEASON The original league generally cost tens of thousands to enter (and usually does have 1-2 openings if people are interested in the high-stakes ones), but these are opening for as low as $125. The prize pools vary from $2,500 to $15,000 and, my favorite part, there are a LOT of ways to earn money with the team (most improved franchise, best farm system, rivalry series, etc.). The bottom line is that these leagues are for only the most serious of fantasy baseball owners, and they are not for the faint of heart. Before doing the first league, this system was in development for decades. Now, it has been running successfully with a full launch into its second season. The only roadblock had been the ability to add more people, and this now gives us the opportunity to do that. Finally, the way it will work for this season is as follows: From now to the All-Star Break: Filling up leagues All-Star Break to July 31: Two-Week Trade Period August 1: New league begins with identical records to corresponding MLB teams So, you will have two weeks to trade your way to a late-summer run to the playoffs and win money for it this year or start to prepare for the rebuild of the future. Either way, we now have a lot of opportunities for anyone interested. If you are, shoot me an email at Jets486@aol.com and I'll give you any other information you need. Enjoy! Mario P.S. We are also opening up football leagues for the first time (announcement coming shortly in a new post), so let me know if you would like information on that, as well.
  4. I've now written about this league in a few different posts, but I want to reiterate it for the potential in the teams. The league already has proven itself to be successful after its first year of operation in which it gave out nearly $50,000 in winnings and has at least $50,000 set aside in winnings for each of the next nine years. That was a big deal for a lot of the people, last year - that we needed "proof of concept" - so I'm hopeful that we no longer have those doubters. Anyway, our Spring Training period has just begin, Manny Machado and Bryce Harper are still unsigned - as are many others - and we are about to have arbitration hearings for those who have not settled on one-year deals. The teams that are still looking for owners are the rMarlins, rCardinals, and rPhillies. The rMarlins still have Marcell Ozuna and J.T. Realmuto, and acquired Justus Sheffield and Hunter Harvey, and they have, by far, the best payroll flexibility of the three teams for sale - ranked tenth-best in our league, actually. The rCardinals have Carlos Martinez, Luke Weaver, Alex Reyes, Jose Martinez, Paul DeJong, Harrison Bader, and a bunch of other talents, but they are pretty active in the trade market and probably have a lot of other pieces I am missing that aren't on the real-life Cardinals. Finally, the rPhillies have Jake Arrieta - like the real Phillies, they signed him last offseason - Aaron Nola, Chris Archer, Carlos Santana, and they improved their franchise value by four spots (ranked objectively by the league office). They are also in my division, so I'm hopeful that someone buys them and makes them terrible. Thanks. Anyway, I'm the owner of the rMets, and I've been pretty active in getting people into the league and answering any questions they have had while doing so. If you're looking for the most legitimate, serious fantasy league you'll ever find, send me an email at Jets486@aol.com and I'll give you as much information as possible. Thanks and good luck!
  5. The rTigers are now officially off the board! Just a few spots left!
  6. End of the weekend bump. Still a few teams left and I think we are close to selling one at the moment. Email me at Jets486@aol.com if you want more information.
  7. I wrote about this league a year ago when it was about to begin its inaugural season and now, nine months later, we have a few openings and a ton of momentum. To reiterate what I mentioned when the league was first starting, it has everything you could possibly want: Rule 5 Draft, 40-Man Rosters, Full Minor League System, Contract Negotiations, Arbitration, and obviously, Batting Lineups, Pitching Rotations, 162-Game Schedule, etc. If the real MLB has it, so does our Virtual Baseball League. Most importantly, one of the reasons why all 30 of us owners bought in before the year began was the expectation that our investments would rapidly grow. It's a fantasy baseball league, but it also has tens of thousands of dollars at stake (this last prize pool was $50,000), and the teams, themselves, are now assets. Right now, we're going to be retaining roughly 80 percent of our original owners, and two teams have already been re-sold. Neither lost money on the initial purchase, and one was sold for a 25% profit in less than six months. I'm leading with the money aspect of this only because I don't need to explain the league any more than I did, last year. It's for the most serious of fantasy baseball players, so it immediately cuts out a large chunk of interested parties. And, with only a few teams available, it's likely that we re-fill the league in a few weeks (which is also when the Winter Meetings begin, some of which will be held live, in-person in Las Vegas). I, myself, am an owner of one of the teams (not the league), but I've been so in love with everything that this company has to offer that I feel responsible to help get more people into it. And, with a full year under our belts, I think all 25 or so of us returning owners (there are actually a lot more, since many teams have front offices of general managers and scouts) are completely invested in seeing the league grow. Anyway, email me at Jets486@aol.com so I can give you all the details, and there is always a review process by the commissioner before approving any new owners. The current teams for sale are the rTigers, rMarlins, rCardinals, rPirates, rPhillies, and rRedSox. Most of the teams still closely resemble their real-life counterparts, but it’s been a year and some have changed. Here are some highlighted assets for a few of the clubs, with more to come: rTigers Mike Moustakas Nicholas Castellanos Michael Fulmer Miguel Cabrera Franklin Perez Matt Manning Alex Faedo Beau Burrows Casey Mize rMarlins Marcell Ozuna Jonathan Schoop J.T. Realmuto Dan Straily Jose Urena Justus Sheffield Ryan Mountcastle Hunter Harvey Dillon Peters Mason Denaburg rCardinals Wil Myers Carlos Martinez Luke Weaver Jose Martinez Paul DeJong Harrison Bader Sandy Alcantara Adolis Garcia Alex Reyes Dakora Hudson Logan Gilbert
