16 team league using the provisional rosters of the real teams. WAY ABOVE AVERAGE AAA will be used for those teams that do not have enough real MLB players on their rosters.

We will RE-NAME our AAA with the actual names of the players on the rosters.

Teams like the USA, who have more than 25 real MLB players can only use real life MLB players and NO AAA
Draft all of the MLB players that your team has and fill the remaining holes with $200k players (that will be sent down and never used !)
Once you re-name the AAA players you are going to use...change the other AAA names to this name...NO PLAY (so you will know not to use them).

$100 mil salary
38 Way Above Average AAA (18 pos./ 20 pitchers) up to 28 to be re-named with your team's non-MLB players' actual names.
No WW
No Trades
40 games LIVE

Use the assigned stadium from your team's pool.


PLEASE USE ONLY SEASONS --- 2006 to 2012. (This will give us a more accurate current player skill level)

Here is the MLB.com link to the WBC rosters...

start with dominican republic

Really, anybody but the Dominican Republic and Venezuela is going to have roughly a snowball's chance in hell of beating the United States in this league.  Not necessarily true in the real world version, but in the WIS version...

In previous version of this league, the US did win, but with the WAA AAA, the divisions should be competitive.
1/17/2013 10:27 PM
On the theory that AAA pitching is about as good as Lance Armstrong's words, I'll go with Venezuela.
1/18/2013 5:09 PM
I will take the USA
1/18/2013 10:07 PM
I'll take Canada
1/21/2013 5:25 AM
chris_son has told me he will take CHINA
1/21/2013 8:58 AM
I don't think USA should get Maddux, most countries have less than 3.5 starters.  
1/21/2013 11:34 AM
Most countries get AAA though. USA won't have any innings filler. AAA innings aren't likely to be good, but they are innings.
