    Please note, that this is a one time team swap. Once the season begins, switching teams will not be allowed.

    Scikotic (Me) has stepped down as the Yankees manager to allow lifelong fan Papi83dm to take them over. I am currently without a team and will make my pick soon. First I would like to see if anyone is interested in taking over the Rays, the team that Papi83dm has vacated.

    If you are interested in the Rays, please post here. They may not be around too long, as I may swoop them up.

    If I didn't have my Cubs the Rays would be tempting! Great young club, I am sure someone might be interested if they don't already have their hometown team.

    Lol I have been there, it is even worse than it looks. Granted, last time I was there they were the Devil Rays and Wade Boggs was their best player...

    yep, not only am I a Mets fan but I love Citi Field. I was also there in its inaugural season with 3rd row tickets in left field, nearly caught a Sheffield HR that night. Beautiful stadium

    If the Rays weren't in the AL East, i'd take them in a second. I want to get as far away from that division as possible...Not because it's intimidating, but because I prefer to not play against my favorite team. So if someone doesn't have their favorite team, and wants to move to the Rays....let me know. Chances are I might take your team instead...

    Citi Field is nice. Sometimes I wish the Cubs would turn Wrigley into a Baseball Museum and build a state of the art...but then I return every summer and remember why I love it...

    No matter who you choose, I think you should stick in the AL, we have less teams over there as it is

    agreed. I have to say i am suprised that a team like the Angels are still open. The Mariners are another team that could fly under the radar with King Felix and Ichiro

    Don't tempt me. I don't need to embarrass the entire NL Central. [​IMG]

    I was planning on it. I was thinking the Angels, Rays, or Mariners.

    I think the Angels will be better then you think. They added Vernon Wells to go along with Tori Hunter. I also like their starting rotation with Jered Weaver, Dan Haren, and Ervin Santana. In my opinion thats a strong starting 3 with the flamethrowing Fernando Rodney closing out games. Not to mention if Scott Kazmir bounces back from a subpar season your talking a very talented starting 4.

    also dont forget the Angels are all about speed and to me they are an AL team that plays NL style ball... bunt, steal, hit and run, etc. I really hated to see Figgins leave as he was another speed guy but apperently they have tons of speed left on that team.

    Kendrick Morales is good too and he was hurt last year. I just have a feeling they are ready for a downswing for a couple seasons with the A's and Rangers being better. We will see!
