Planning for 2008

December 2007:

As mentioned this spring, we moved into a new realm of baseball statistics services...a necessary step, but very expensive.  BWB will lose money in 2007, and the fee for stats will go up again in 2008...so everything about the next few months is about expanding the number of leagues and customers.


For any of the items listed below, contact me if you are interested: jon DOT swanson AT benchwarmerbaseball DOT net (trying to cut down on automated spam).


Become a Benchwarmer Benefactor - Never pay for a team again.  Ever.

The BWB contract with STATS, LLC for daily MLB statistics includes monthly payments through December.  In order to cover the last few months (I needed to offer this in September) and to free up some cash for advertising over the winter, Benchwarmer Baseball presents you with this offer: Never pay for a team - ever again.


There is a catch.  A one-time fee to cover one month of the BWB stats bill.  $750.  No such thing as a free lunch, remember?

Obviously, this isn't for everyone.  But, you have an opportunity to invest in BWB and gain these benefits:

  • As many teams as you want each season - for no additional charge*
  • You may transfer the free seasons you win for post-season victories to any BWB owner.
  • Bring your friends into BWB.  You can give out up to 5 startup/orphan teams for free to BRAND NEW owners each season.
  • No promises at this time, but there may be the potential to return your all or part of your investment if BWB expands successfully in future years.

If BWB goes out of business in the next five years, you'll get a refund of $150 for each season not completed.

If you leave on your own accord, there is no refund - though you can return at any time with the same benefits.


This offer is available for a limited time - until 12/31/07 - or contact BWB if you need a little extra time to pay.

It may be offered again in 2008, but the cost will likely increase to $1000 to match the increased price for stats for that season.

NOTE - This offer is open again until March 31, 2008 - at $750, it will not be this low again. (If you've already paid, we can deduct that amount).


If you're interested, you can use the button below to pay by credit card via PayPal.  If you have your own PayPal account, that is a better option for me since I won't have to pay credit card transaction fees.  Contact me for other options.



*Sorry, this does not apply to league, conference, or division packages.  If you are part of one of those packages, that package price will not change.

Additional Free Teams

In order to seed the beginnings of more leagues, ALL division winners in 2007 will receive an extra free team for 2008.  This team is like the teams awarded to the winners of the lower-rung post season tournaments - they do not apply to the franchise that won the team (that reward is reserved for the league champion).  These teams may only be used for new teams in brand new leagues (no orphans - at least to begin with) - but unlike the free teams awarded in past seasons, these may be transferred to another owner.  They are good for 2008 only and cannot be carried over into 2009.


Are You Creative?

We'd like to expand our use of online advertising and start to create a brand identity.

BWB Logo

Do you have graphics skills or a marketing background?  It may be time for a logo for Benchwarmer Baseball

Print and Online Advertising

BWB has secured an advertising slot in this winter's Fantasy Baseball Index.  But I used their ad creation department - for that ad only.  I took a shot at creating a web banner ad a couple years ago -- it's not my bag.  Do you have experience with graphics and an eye for creativity?


If you'd like to help BWB with either of these items, and we can work out some creative compensation (BWB is cash poor and looking at a big bill for stats in 2008), contact me and we can work out the details.


BWB "Employment"

I haven't done very much with this over the last few years, other than giving some teams away for little or no work, but BWB can use some help with:

  • Transaction Tracking
  • League Admins - answering team questions and updating FAQs
  • Entering Minor League stats

Let me know if you're interested.  You can earn a free team (or teams) for your help.
