We need a new manager in our MIDNIGHT MADNESS LEAGUE for the Red Sox team.This is one of our DESIGNATED TEAM leagues and this one is the Red Sox. You can change to another team next season if you don't want to be the Sox . Draft already occurred tonight. In this league we have 6 keepers each year,3 from your designated team( in this case RED SOX) and 3 non designated that you keep from your roster each season heading into the season. You have to keep 3 active SOX on your roster each game( not on DL) all season long. First manager that gets back to me and gets in to grab team will be in league,so drop me a line if interested. This is the roster. You can be any major league team that isn't already taken by league mangers in the future.
C AVILA ,SCHUMAKER, JASO
1B ADRIAN GONZALEZ
2B NEIL WALKER PROFAR SCHUMAKER
SS PROFAR ( IN MINORS) JED LOWRIE

Obviously this team isn't so good right now and you will need to be looking at the Jackie Bradley and future Sox to build it and your first year may be tough, but there are always a lot of prospects out there and for those that like it, this is a neat team building league you can work with over the Years. Team does have 4 good sp, though lacks depth in pitching, a good 1b in Adrian Gonzalez( losing him as designated RED SOX didn't help so he became a non designated keeper instead), maybe a good ss for the future Profar and an unhealthy one with potential in LOWRIE, perhaps a 3b of the future in Chisenhall( if he can hit like he is this spring). outfield pretty boring ,ok, does have ELLSBURY and a potential future star in Sterling Marte. 2 good closers for this year in Riveira and Rodney. DOWNSIDE is not enough good sox and too much Skip Schumaker lol. with too.
You do have some trade worthy parts on your team to build. The Pirates are messed up big time as they didn't have enough Pirates going into the draft and still don't and are risking forfeiting games if they don't get some,so that is a potential trading partner right there. Think I'd build for the future. Let me know if you'd like to take over this team,first manager to get back to me and sign in joins league and gets team.
You can e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me here at fleaflicker. Would enjoy getting some fleaflicker people I haven't met involved with our leagues.
