Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Yes, it's really brutal. I had a manager try to ruin the league by setting up a brutal autodraft and not showing up to the draft. This team is the worst team you will ever see! I'm looking for a manager who wants a challenge. You will be joining a dynasty league in it's first year (so you have lots of time to try to turn it around).
If you are interested in taking over this team send me an email - firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work something out.
You don't really have any picks in the top 5 rounds as the autodraft really screwed this team over. This league will be extremely active and competitive so you should be able to field a lot of trade offers and scour the waiver wire.
Here is the team:
1. (16) Mike MacDougal
(LAD - RP)
2. (25) Arthur Rhodes
(StL - RP)
3. (56) Josh Spence
(SD - RP)
4. (65) Rich Hill
(Bos - RP)
5. (96) Everett Teaford
(KC - SP,RP)
6. (105) Casey Kotchman
(Cle - 1B)
7. (136) Marco Estrada
(Mil - SP,RP)
8. (145) Brett Anderson
(Oak - SP)
9. (176) Mark Hamilton
(StL - 1B)
10. (185) John Bowker
(Phi - 1B,OF)
11. (216) Brandon Snyder
(Tex - 1B)
12. (225) Russ Mitchell
(LAD - 1B,3B)
13. (256) Tommy Joseph
(SF - C,1B)
14. (265) Adrian Cardenas
(ChC - 2B,SS)
15. (296) Freddy Galvis
(Phi - 2B,SS)
16. (305) Jonathan Singleton
(Hou - OF)
17. (336) Clete Thomas
(Det - OF)
18. (345) Anthony Gose
(Tor - OF)
19. (376) David Aardsma
(NYY - RP)
20. (385) Marc Rzepczynski
(StL - RP)
21. (416) Nick Johnson
(Cle - 1B)
22. (425) Lars Anderson
(Bos - 1B)
23. (456) Mike Jacobs
(Col - 1B)
Obviously you have your work cut out for you. This isn't a team you will be able to turn around in one year, it will require a few years for sure. If you are up for the challenge shoot me an email
Even though this is a brutal team, you will be joining a great league. Thanks for your time.

Thanks for all the bumps guys, I got a ton of emails from guys wanting to try their luck at fixing the team. Our league is eager to help him out too. Obviously it's more than a 1 year fix but there is a ton of support in getting this team back together.

I agree.....it is the only way to save the league unless it is not a H2H league and you can delete that team..even if you have to wait til next year to do it. You will just have one dead team all year. I hope you blocked the guy from access to the team!!!!
That guy didn't try to ruin your draft...he did ruin your draft.
Is there a limit to weekly roster moves? If you aren't going to redraft you need to freeze rosters and give someone a few days to own the FA market.
No one will take over that crap. there are not even enough players on that roster who will get playing time to field a team. Is it a roto or H2H league?? Hopefully it is a roto or points league and you can simply eliminate that team next year!!! I see no other way of fixing it!!!
Is that a baseball team? Wow.
First year of Dynasty league...time to redraft that is f'ing ridiculous.
Give more details about league. Number of teams, roto or H2H, what positions do you start (so I get a sense of what is on the waiver wire). I might be interested in at least getting the team going. I think you need to arrange a few courtesy trades or something though...bc that is ridiculous.
