Union League Baseball - Just converted to OOTP20

The ULB has just completed the 2029 season, and is moving to OOTP20 for the 2030 season. The offseason is slated to start on Tuesday, July 23rd,and we're looking to fill a few holes. We have recruited for a while due to the pending move to the latest version of OOTP, so we're looking at the largest amount of openings in the league's history.

PM me with an email address and I will invite you to our Slack group to get you set up!

Contenders

San Juan Storm (88-74, 1st place PL Atlantic Division. Minors rank 3rd,5 top 100 Prospects, 1 Union Cup Win since 1995)
One of the smallest markets in the league, the Storm do have dedicated fans, who have endured a decade of losing before 2029, when they came from behind to take the top spot in a tough division. (Thanks for selling Havana!) The Storm fell to the Connecticut Whales in the PL Divisional Cup this season, but the fans in Puerto Rico are excited to see the Storm contenders once again.

New Mexico Suns (89-73, 2nd Place FL Central Division. Minors rank 18th, 5 top 100 prospects, 0 Union Cup Wins since 2004)
The Suns just came onto the market as the GM switched teams. The Suns are built to win now, and also have some talent in the pipeline. With their rotation hopefully back for 2030 intact and the Stabb-Alexander's ready in the lineup, the Suns will most likely once again challenge for the Division title with Houston.

Neutral

New York Kings (78-84, 3rd Place, PL Metropolitan Division. Minors rank 7th, 5 top 100 prospects, 3 Union Cup Wins since 1995)
The longtime owner of the Kings recently retired, leaving the Kings open for the first time in over 25 seasons. The Kings currently lack depth and lean more towards the rebuilding phase. The team does feature a few aging stars and some promising prospects, with the right moves they could move up the standings quickly in the Metro division.

Rebuilding

Boston Colonials (74-88, 4th Place PL Metropolitan Division. Minors rank 16th, 3 top 100 prospects, 0 Union Cup Wins since 1995)
Boston looked to be turning their fortunes around a few seasons ago, but have regressed back into mediocrity. Good fanbase with consistent revenue. Team appears to have inherited the Bambino curse, which unlike in real life, remains a thing in the ULBverse.

Boston and New York have made some good moves in FA. NM and SJS are semi tapped out in terms of FA Money at the moment.
