New Group created by the Spork

It's a though experiment called the Expansion Draft League.  What I am trying to do is create a team of all posters that will compete against regular baseball teams.  I need an entire front office and manager to control the players we'll be drafting and everything.  If you're interested, I'm am currently posting for a GM.  Leave a comment with an explaination of why you'd make a good GM on the group page.

So there's a little bit of buzz on this right now.  I'm currently working with 14 straight to pick a city for this theoretical team.  Essentially I putting together a front office at the moment in preperation for an expansion draft.  I've got some ideas about how we can compare the team to a regular schedule and see if we make the playoffs and whatnot.  I'll post positions on the group site as we need them.  Right now I'm looking at team location, team name, stadium site, sponsers and team colors.  Then we'll have a fake expansion draft.  Then the manager gets to choose his coaches, the head scout gets to choose his scouts, and the GM can assemble a team of advisors.  If you want in, I'll float your name out to 14 straight when he's picking advisors.

I have a group page set up for this thought experiment.  Right now 14 straight has been named GM since he had the only post I saw on the group site.  I'll be looking for a manager and scouting director after we get some of the basics hammered out (location, payroll, etc.) 

I think based on the posts so far, I wouldn't mind having mmccrac as manager and MisterE as scouting director if you each want to accept those posts.  I'll have more info once I get a chance to get an expansion draft thrown together.  Again this is purely though process driven and not an actual league or anything, but a fun attempt to run a franchise.

Let me know if you two want to accept the posts.

If i yell at my Kids alot like i'm running a team at home (5 children) then this is for me. Right now my throut is sore and aching because i got all in one of there faces about snacking during the summer. You need to eat right. this sounds like a great League you are putting together. what are your really looking for. What kind of team is going to be put together. I hope the front office doesn't go firing a manager and then following 
night they win another game. now i see there is a chain of events. 2 managers as we write.
