Believe it or not, LA did so many trades last year that I had managed to re-obtain the Sabercats' 1st Round Rookie Pick, (included in the trade were WRs Garrett Wilson and Marquise Brown).   Other than that, we're good.

The New York Blackbirds aren't done wheeling and dealing yet!

I've got the following players listed on my trade block in Fantrax.

Luis Robert Jr. (OF) $17 cap hit: An excellent OF, had a career year last season.
Daulton Varsho (OF) $1: Decent quality for OF depth!
Clayton Kershaw (SP): $9: One of baseball's all time great starters, Kershaw is out until August unfortunately, but when healthy, look out!
Walker Buehler (SP): $18: Yes, he's expensive and yes, he's out until May 1st at the earliest.  But when healthy, he's an annual Cy Young candidate.
Dean Kremer (SP): $1: A cheap starting pitcher coming off a career year and has a great Orioles lineup behind him?  That's Dean Kremer.
Michael Wacha (SP): $1: Don't let Fantrax's projections scare you.  Wacha has been very solid the past two seasons and playing for a young, hungry Royals team, he could easily over perform expectations yet again for a cheap $1 price tag.
Kenta Maeda (SP): $1: Playing for an even hungrier and improving Tigers team, Maeda might over perform on his stats this year and he's a cheap starting pitcher asset.
Jose Berrios (SP): $17: I don't have him listed on my trade block since he's not on my team at the moment.  Yes, I just traded for him.  That doesn't mean I'm not willing to listen to offers for him.  A solid pitcher on a good Blue Jays team, he'll get his wins for sure!
Craig Kimbrel (RP): $14: C'mon!  You know you wanna ride the Craig Kimbrel experience!  Yes, he's very up and down, but he's also the Orioles' 2024 closer (Felix Bautista is out for all of 2024, remember).  That team being so good will certainly give Craig plenty of save opportunities.

I'm looking for draft picks (I don't have a 2nd Rounder at the moment and would love one!).  In particular, if you're pitching within the top 3 overall picks, I'd be VERY interested in getting into the top 2-3 picks of this year's redraft (I do have #6 and #11 of the first round that could be moved).  However, I could also use som

What an awesome end to MIU's first season in the league, as we survived a difficult match against Ohio A & M.  In doing so, the Bucks has won the Heartland Athletic Conference in dramatic fashion after being 2 games behind Minnesota Ag & Mech as late in the year as after Week 7 (of 10).   

It hasn't been easy at all, but we've made it to Bowl Season in the playoffs.  While we've scored the 2nd least amount of total points out of all the playoff teams, we do currently have the 2nd longest winning streak, (only trailing the Commonwealth in that regard) and the confidence of having a perfect 3-0 record against our fellow tournament foes.  

We'll need to stay hot as we face a dreaded conference foe for our first matchup of the post season.  We did defeat Minnesota Ag & Mech back in Week 8, but the fact remains that they outscored us by over 200 points during the season (in fact, they were the league leaders in points scored nationwide!!!), so this won't be easy!   But as we wear our standard home jerseys of yellow helmet, green shirts, and yellow pants, we'll be ready to bring the fight to the Threshers (hopefully with our QB able bodied, of course Jayden Daniels would have suffered concussion like symptoms yesterday)!

Ouch!   Well last week didn't go too hot against the #2 ranked Bandits... the white meat babyface promo didn't exactly work out.   

Ah well, now to move on and get the Sabercats ready for a bounce back win... against the #1 ranked Copperheads... hoo boy... well, nobody ever said this'd be easy.   Wonder if bringing back that old #HuntingSeason from WAY back in the AltFL Legacy days will inspire a much better performance?   

Let's do it!  L.A. Sabercats!  It's.... #HUNTINGSEASON!   Now, go get you some meat noddles!

Let's see, 8 out of 10 of us (and by us, I mean you all because I forgot to join this contest... whoops) picked the LA Sabercats to lose.   I'd gloat, but if not for a late game 3 yard TD catch by Garrett Wilson, we'd have lost by a whopping .1 points... soooo, yeah that wasn't that bad of a prediction.

This is to say that the Sabercats are gonna pull out the pro wrestling white meat babyface promo by promising to do our best, give it 110%, and that we're gonna get those dirty Bandits!

!!!BREAKING NEWS!!!

Today, a very visibly shaken Dick Dingleberry, the longtime AltSPN personality (and known grouch), released a bombshell of an announcement, claiming that he has finally solved the mystery of the Stickmen, those strange (and often irritating) sports team owners perhaps more famous for their antics than they for their debatable skills are running their teams.    

"I was over at Michigan Institutional University... or was it Michigan Collegiate Institute?   Eh, whatever, the damned name don't make a difference!  I was over at MIU trying to get an interview with University President Stickman... and it all happened like this..." 

(CUE FLASHBACK WAVY LINE EFFECT TO APPROXIMATELY 3 HOURS AGO... YES, OF COURSE YOU CAN DO THIS IN NEWSPAPER ARTICLES!  WHY ARE YOU ALL QUESTIONING THIS?!)

Dick Dingleberry walked away from University President Stickman's office, in a foul mood after being denied an interview by his foul mouthed and dirty minded young blonde secretary with the pink dress and goggles (seriously?  Dick was convinced that she hadn't yet graduated from whatever elite Japanese high school that she claimed to have attended.  And she was supposed to be an "Ultimate Inventor" too?   Whatever that was).   He had been trying for years to get an interview with this supposedly brilliant scientist, this latest Stickman.  After all, the elite science program was allegedly MIU's main selling point, with their fingers apparently deep into top secret bioengineering, U.F.O. studies, and even extreme hypnosis (MIU had claimed they could literally rewrite history by convincing every person on the planet to believe a lie with this technique.  Dick believed that to be nonsense).   All of the studies were supposed to be run by Stickman, while also being responsible for his duties as the founder of the college. 

Whatever, Dick thought to himself as he walked around a couple making out- right in front of a classroom too!-, this guy is probably

Great start so far Steel!  I've got one more suggestion for the standings.  If it's possible, in addition to the team abbreviations, I wonder if it'd be still a bit easier to tell which team is which by coloring the abbreviation box the team color the racer is on (I'd imagine with everyone having different colors, or at least different color combos, that's probably make identifying who's on what team in the standings pretty easy to quickly understand)

Keep up the good work!

Today, I'm happy to announce the unveiling of the brand new, state of the art, Old Corporate Bank Park.   Why is the new stadium called Old?  Mostly for character.  Since we are called Berlin 1871, we wanted to invoke a feeling of nostalgia, as though Old Corporate Bank Park has been there for generations.   Granted, absolutely nothing in the stadium itself is old fashioned, everything is state of the art.   Being able to seat an impressive 75,522 screaming fans, Berlin 1871 will be among the loudest on the planet (no really, we made sure of it.   It'd bore you to listen to me prattle on how exactly we did it, but our architecture was put together to make screaming fans' voices echo. making the stadium even louder than it already is).   

Oh, and don't mind the controversy about how the stadium was funded, or about the working conditions.  Fact is, state of the art stadiums are expensive and require significant resources.  There's only so much that an honest little company like Corporate Bank can contribute.  But, you'll all be happy to know that the classic Revolve a Field technology that other stadiums with the Corporate Bank (the most successful bank on the planet, mind you!) name have is back!   When we're not using the field for soccer, we're using it for American Football (we'd love to have the AltFL bring a game or two internationally to grow the sport's popularity in Germany!), Basketball (AltBA, perhaps?) and even Chess Boxing!  So the city will be getting it's money's worth for sure!   

What?  You really want to know about the approximate 4,500 lawsuits from those whining workers, that claim they were put through extreme and abusive working conditions?   Oh c'mon, you know how it goes.  We couldn't get enough German people to work on Old Corporate Bank Park and they wanted too much money anyway.   So we did what any other responsible corporation does, which was hire international workers from less fortunate countries for signifi

And our not-so-lucky clubs...



Be on the look out for an invite from Fantrax.

Needless to say please use the official team logo on Fantrax. We put a lot of time into developing them! 

QCS is so prevalent that they got to own a 2nd team, by kicking a Stickman out of Berlin to do so.  If that wasn't bad enough, instead of merely kicking Stick out of the AltLiga, they also then forced Stickman to shut up and take over Istanbul, no word yet on what happened to Darknes.  Moral of the story is, don't never mess with Quice!

All kidding aside, I'm so excited to get this league going!   So many great teams and something tells me this'll be our best league yet!
