Last Benchwarmer Baseball Beer League Orphan Team Taken

Great news for the Beer League as the final orphan team has been taken by one of the Original 12 Benchwarmer Baseball managers: Andy "The Bank" Marquis. Andy will be running 6(!) teams this year and his wealth of BWB experience should make his Duff Duffmen a perennial favorite for the division crown.

The Duffmen have a good amount of talent (Prince Fielder, Dan Uggla, Michael Young, Joey Votto, Nick Markakis, Brian McCann, Josh Beckett), but previous ownership did not manage the finances well, so only Joey Votto is under contract (and only through 2009) and cash on hand is a mere 1006 Benchwarmer Bucks. It will be interesting to see how Andy reshapes the team.

The Beer League is the only (to my knowledge) money league in BWB. It is stocked with BWB veterans and is rather competitive. Best of Luck to all the fellow Beer Leaguers this year; I'm looking forward to another fun year. Thanks for joining Andy!
