The01/61 League, currently a 20 team league, will be starting its draft for the 1918/1978 season in about 10 days from now.  We have 2  openings: St. Loius  Cardinals and Minnesota Gladiators.  Rosters are posted below.

Here are the league rules:

 No DH, No WW, No AAA, No Salary Cap, No Live play. Injuries off. 

 Teams may keep up to 25 players each year, plus injured reserve. Each team is allowed an unlimited number of IR slots for players who are not WIS-eligible in any given year. Each owner is responsible for keeping track of his IR players and making sure each year’s keeper list is correct. Failure to list a player as a keeper means that player will be added to the available draft list, and you risk losing the player.

Unlike some progressives, you do NOT need to drop players to account for traded draft picks. Each team will be allotted as many draft picks as necessary to reach 25 players, based on the total roster size of each team at the start of the draft. If, because of trades occurring during the draft, a team finds that it needs additional picks, those picks will be slotted at the very end of the draft.

There will be a random lottery among the 4 teams with the worst record to determine draft order for the first round only.
 
No team that fails to win at least 40 games during the regular season will draft higher than 3rd in the first round.

All other teams will draft in inverse order of their regular season record . All rounds subsequent to the first will be in inverse order of their regular season record .  Ties will be broken by total run differential (total runs scored less total runs allowed) with the team having the worst run differential drafting earlier.

Following the completion of the draft there will be an add/drop round where owners may add/drop as many players that they need to, each on a first come/first served basis. Sometimes there is an oversight and we miss drafting a need for the team. So any Players Drafted during the Current Draft, My NOT be Dropped for the Adds/Cuts.

If you will be away during your pick, you have two options:
(a) post a public proxy in the league forums OR 
(b) send a proxy to the commissioner and the two owners immediately following you AND post in the league forum draft thread that you have done this. 

Draft picks may be traded up to 2 seasons in advance.

I would love to be involved, but I haven't played in a league like this before or any league in a long time.  I'm an original who got tired of the simleague.  If you have an opening and some patients this seems like the thing to get me back into the baseball leagues I so love.  Brooklyn or St. Louis would be fine with me since I don't know enough to even figure out who will be better down the road.

Welcome aboard, John.  We have a great group of owners who can help with any questions--I think you will find the progressives fun.  I will drop you a site mail with more information today and get you access to our private forum.
