FGPTs league reorganizing - owners needed

The old “Hillsborough High” league has been renamed to “Auto Noise Alliance” and is now seeking 10 new owners. 5 of the old owners were active last year, the other 5 in 2017. There are a lot of good players on the teams as well as in the free agent pool. We will give new owners time to review and thin out their teams, and then we will setup a draft, even though the season has already started.

We’re looking for team owners who are enthusiastic, committed, and good sports. Come and join us.

Hollenbox, commissioner

So, what’s the next step? I don’t see these teams in the Available Teams list.

I’d take ownership of a team!

Look under “expired teams.” There are nine teams listed there from Auto Noise Alliance. The tenth, “Fo Shizzle My Rizzo,” will be posted shortly (owner has said he is not renewing but there is a grace period that needs to expire); this team is viewable if you go to the league page and walk the team’s link.

Look over the teams and if you find one you like, claim it and email me.

Hope this helps.

Great! Pick a team and claim it and let me know.

Am I missing the league page? Would love to scope it out


For people who are interested, there WILL be a draft. This from commish yesterday:
So when would you like to setup the draft? I can go as early as next week.

We’ve gotten two new owners to pick up teams in our league. 8 teams are left, links to each below for those who are new to Ottoneu. There are lots of good players on the teams as well as in the pool of free agents. As owner, you will get a round of penalty-free cuts. You will get to participate in a draft in a week or so, so you will be able to draft good players then also. We’re getting interest, so give the teams a look. Hope you can join us.

Just added another owner!
Kenny Power’s Comeback is now taken and no longer available.

Looking for our last few owners. Plenty of free agents in Auto Noise Alliance (https://ottoneu.fangraphs.com/591/home) to stock your team, including those below. We will be setting up a draft shortly. New owners get a set of non-penalty cuts before the draft. Let me know ASAP.

  • Hitters: Peter Alonso, Vogelbach, Voit, Bell, Mondezi, Verdugo, Dahl, Domingo Santana, Villar, Puig

  • Starting Pitchers: Archer, Maeda, Soroka, Tanaka, Boyd, Arrieta, Paddack, Woodruff

  • Relief Pitchers: S. Greene, Alvarado, Giles, Brassier, Jordan Hicks, Pressly, Trivino

Hey, I’m pretty down to join, what teams are still available?

CJ, here’s the list of teams still available to claim. Hope you can join us.

I just claimed the Mermen…greetings.

Two new owners (welcome, CJ and astraea.m.k!), bringing our total to 7. Five teams are still available. Check 'em out. Hope you can join us.

“Hunterpence None The Richer” was just claimed. We now have 8 owners and only 4 remaining teams. The league is deciding if we will have a total redraft of all players or a “disbursement draft” (preceding the annual auction draft) of the 6 teams that did not participate in the full 2018 season. The remaining teams are included in the 6. This may be of interest to those contemplating our league, and hesitate since the remaining teams are somewhat ‘stale;’ either option should alleviate that condition. Hop in now while teams are still available.


We just voted and decided to do a full redraft, starting over for all teams. So if you join the league by claiming one of the four remaining teams, you’ll be able to pick your players and not worry about inheriting some players with out-of-date salaries. We’re starting to plan the draft dates, so jump in while you can.

We now have 11 teams for our league. Only one team opening remains. We’re setting up a draft and hope to start league play by June 1. If you’re interested, claim a team now - there is little time left.

We now have 12 owners and the league is closed. Thanks again for all the advice and interest. Now onto our total redraft.
