Here is the league's basic challenge:  Can you manage and not draft your way to victory?

The rules:
     Draft $200K scrubs only.
     Use your random 60/20 Above Average AAA with Real Names to build your team.
     (You can also use your scrubs if you want to.)
     There is no WW.
     Clones are okay.
     Trades are okay until game 120.
     No transaction deadline for minors.
     Unique stadiums with hits factor = 0.
     16 team, 4 division, league 
     No DH.
     No Live.
     Injuries are on.

two silly questions.............

when you say "hits factor = 0" for the stadium, do you mean the 1B number from the stadium ratings?

can you have a trade deadline at 120 WITHOUT having the transaction deadline until the end of the season?  (I thought it was either/or)

Yes, hits factor = 1B factor.  FYI, it really is a hits factor
No trades after game 120 will be manually enforced.

I am in. This should stave off boredom.

I entered a team but cannot find my AAA guys...shall I assume they will appear once the league fills? Or did I make an error somewhere along the line.

AAA guys are only available after the schedule for the league generates.

If you just want to see the names of the players you have without their actual ratings, you can click on the "rename players" tab.  It will show your roster by position with the real names of the players you will be assigned later.

has anybody tried a league like this before with Above-Average AAA pitchers?  will they even have enough innings or stamina to last a season???
12/13/2012 1:12 PM (edited)
thanks wonker that worked...but then, I thought I'd be clever and re-draft my team using players with last names that all start with the same letter. This would make it easier for me to identify the scrub players once I began dealing with 80 additional players...so I pulled my team out, re-drafted and then re-entered the league. Now I cannot see my AAA guys after clicking on rename.

Considering you have 20 pitchers and need ~1350ip for a season, you will need ~67ip/ pitcher.  I'd think at Above Average AAA quality, it should be do-able.  And even if you run short, you could have ~300ip from your scrubs.

I think you should check again...........it normally takes a game cycle after your team is entered before the AAA guys are assigned.

......and against my better judgement.................IN!
