Sure, I'll pick a player later.

I think it would be tough to find a better option left than Mike Sharperson and the '95 Atlanta Braves.  Maddux and Schmidt will be acing this staff.
11/17/2012 11:33 AM
I'll take Clay Dalrymple and the 1969 Orioles

"If the exclusive player is not WIS eligible but appears on baseball-reference.com on the opening day team for transaction year then the player is still eligible since he can be twisted."

Um.....I read this to mean that my Phil Plantier / Blue Jays '98 team is ineligible since he never actually played for Toronto.  If that's the case I will pick someone else.



11/19/2012 12:03 AM
Eddie Kasko and the 64 Colt 45's

Jesters,
I tried really hard to find a link to the Blue Jays on opening day for Phil Plantier in 1998 but unfortunately the New York Times Transactions Published: March 20, 1998....

BASEBALL

American League

TORONTO BLUE JAYS -- Released OF Phil Plantier. Optioned SS Tomas Perez, C Julio Mosquera and RHP Carlos Almanzar to Syracuse of the International League.

------------------
If he would have opened the season on a Toronto minor league affiliate then it would be allowed but he actually ended up playing for one of the NY Mets minor league teams in 1998.

Yeah, I figured.  Well so much for the only feasible Toronto option.  Oh well, I'll use the same season (1998) but take jesus Tavarez and the Baltimore Orioles.  At least I'll get Robbie Alomar, Jimmy Key, and Juan Guzman.

Jesters,
Nice selection.  There is some serious hitting on that team.
11/20/2012 12:18 AM
Now that first 8 teams are announced I will select Chan Ho Park and the 2008 Los Angeles Dodgers.
11/20/2012 2:26 AM
That was my original thought until I found the 64 Colts....
11/20/2012 8:54 PM
So, if I understand this correctly, your exclusive player had to be on the team's opening day roster?  

If so, that was not the case with Vida Blue and the 87 Athletics.  A shame, plenty of solid veterans to work with.

I will instead go with Paul Blair and the 77 Yankees.
11/21/2012 11:45 AM
I'd be game with Dave Kingman and the '86 A's please.
11/21/2012 12:16 PM
This league could be called the Barry Soetoro league 
11/21/2012 2:35 PM
Welcome hokieken!  Good one kbaseball, can I reserve a slot for you?
11/26/2012 11:48 PM
I'll play. Team TBA,
of 4
