Cash for Orphan Teams
It turns out this rule isn't codified, so it will eventually be
added in an appropriate place in the rules.
When owners pick up an orphan team, in most cases that team has
significant problems and needs a lot of help. These owners
will get extra Benchwarmer Bucks to help them rebuild the team and
shape it the way that they would desire. Since BWB began, this
cash value has been 2 million. In part because many owners
pick up an orphan as their first team and are thrust into learning
the game at the same time they are starting to rebuild, the cash
award will be increased to 4 million for 2011 - allowing them
some additional room for trial and error with their first moves.
