A league started by, well, me, now has a single opening. Please PM me if you're interested. Here are the details:

League Name: Senior Circuit Sluggers
Host Site: ESPN, http://games.espn.go.com/flb/leagueoffi ... sonId=2013
Player Universe: National League Only
League Details: 7x7 Rotisserie League
Hitting Categories: Runs, RBIs, Home Runs, Stolen Bases, Batting Average, On-Base Percentage, Slugging Percentage
Pitching Categories: Ks, Wins, Quality Starts, Holds, Saves, ERA, WHIP
Number of Teams: 10
Draft Date and Time: Friday, March 15, 2013, at 9:30 p.m. EST (online auction draft, $260 budget minus cost of keepers)
Starters: C, 1B, 2B, SS, 2B/SS, 1B/3B, LF, CF, RF, OF, OF, UTIL, Px9
Bench: 3 slots, 2 DL slots
2013 Dues and Prizes: 2013 League Dues are $50 per team. Dues must be received by the Commissioner (that's me) on or before the online auction draft date in order for the paying team to be eligible to win the cash prizes. 2013 League Prizes are as follows: (1) $250 and The Winner's Cup to the champion, (2) $150 and The Silver Cup to the first runner-up, and (3) $100 and The Bronze Cup to the second runner-up.
Keepers: Each team may retain up to 4 players (and as few as 0 players), at a cost to the team's 2013 auction draft budget (set at $260) of what was bid on that player in the 2012 league draft (or, alternatively, what was bid in a waiver wire claim on that player). For example, if King Kong Cutch decides to keep Andrew McCutchen ($30 in 2012 draft), David Wright ($28), Aroldis Chapman ($4) and Ian Desmond ($8), my team would have $190 to spend during the 2013 auction draft. You can review the 2012 league draft through this site.
Keeper Selection Date: Wednesday, March 13, 2013, at 5:00 p.m. EST. There is a hyperlink called "Keepers" on your team's 2013 web page that allows you to select the players you wish to retain for the 2013 campaign. Please let me know if you have any problems navigating the site.
Trades: The current rules do not include a trade deadline for our league, which means teams may propose and agree to trades at any time during the season or off-season. Additionally, there is no prohibition against trading players on the Disabled List. During this off-season, teams can propose trades of players, 2013 auction budget dollars and/or FAAB dollars designed to improve their keeper situation. Teams may only trade auction budget dollars for the upcoming year or, during the season, the following year. That means teams may currently trade only 2013 auction budget dollars, but once the MLB season begins, teams may trade 2014 auction budget dollars.
NL Players Who Become AL Players Via Trade: As noted during the 2012 year, teams do not receive any statistics earned by former National League players if they are traded to the American League. This is part of both drafting and acquisition strategy in our league. Players who are unlikely to be moved are consequently more valuable than players who are likely to be traded.
FAAB and the Waiver Wire: Each team will receive $150 to bid on waiver wire players throughout the season. If two or more teams tie in the bidding for a particular player, the team lowest in the standings will be awarded the player. Teams must bid at least $1 for a player. Also, FAAB dollars may be traded in-season (though the following year's FAAB dollars may not be traded). Because Senior Circuit Sluggers is a daily league (which means teams set their line-ups each day), waiver wire bids are awarded every day during the season (and prior to the start of the season) at 11:00 a.m. EST.

The team you'd be taking over features Clayton Kershaw ($34), Matt Kemp ($39), Neil Walker ($14), Andre Ethier ($14), A.J. Burnett ($10), and Martin Prado ($15) as potential keepers.

Let me know. Thanks.
