I'm looking for one owner for a MLB themed 30-team dynasty league. The league was started for the 2020 season on FanTrax and was put on-hold due to the pandemic after some league activity (trading) had taken place. Now that it appears there will be a 2020 season, we are looking to get running again and give the abbreviated season a go. There is no guarantee that the season will happen or be completed due to all of the uncertainty surrounding MLB but I need one replacement owner anyway so that this team can participate in the upcoming amateur draft in August as well as other off-season activities that will begin in the fall/winter. The Red Sox are the available team.
Please read the original description of the league below for more information. Also see the update below which clarifies how we are modifying rules to accommodate the abbreviated 2020 season, including cancellations.
Original League Description
This league is setup for owners to inherit an MLB team (MLB and a portion of MiLB) as of this spring, including actual rosters, salaries, and contracts. Teams will also start with up-to 39 minor league players from their organization. After that, we are on our own and free to build our teams as we see fit. So, if you love the Royals and wish you could turn them into a big market team, you can. However, there is a cost to that as your entry fee correlates with your team's payroll. At the same time, you can take over a rebuilding team and maintain a lower payroll and still earn some prize money if you continue to field a competitive team. This league has much to offer for all types of owners and the league rules are in-depth. I have put a lot of time into them to hopefully avoid many of the pitfalls that large dynasty leagues encounter.

I'm looking for mature baseball fans that enjoy fantasy baseball as much as I do.
If you are a win-at-all costs type that will bail out after one season if things don't go your way please look elsewhere.
This isn't a fly-by-night league. I have been a commissioner for many years and run very organized leagues.
Please do not waste my time asking to see the league rules if you're not serious about joining a league.
