this progressive started with the most awesome draft ever

24 teams, 25 roster positions, rookies only, the entire history of baseball

12,000 players to choose from, 1885 to 2010, David Aardsma to Dutch Zwilling



mainly everyone went for long term studliness, but also there was the lust to win now



now here we are ten seasons in and we just lost an owner

so do history a favor and adopt this orphan

League Rules:

1. you draft someone, you draft his rookie season

2. you cut someone, he is gone forever from this league

3. provided rules 1 and 2 are followed, you can draft any player from any year

4. you keep someone from last year, you play his next available year. meaning if he skipped a year, you skip on ahead too. no IR/DL like most progressives have

5. you want to draft a guy you have to cut a guy. no keeper list like most progressives have

6. no collusion & no tanking. oh sure, they all say that. here's how we do it: no trades & champ drafts first

7. 24 team open-league-style schedule. Alignment random so you don't get stuck behind that Cy Young Babe Ruth team every season

8. no DH, AAA, or WW. no $, PA, IP, position, or stadium restrictions. Like the mad scot says when they're scotching his nards, Freedom!

9. i will need a real life email address so i can send you a whitelist / blacklist spreadsheet every season around playoff time

10. just , baby
5/19/2013 6:31 PM (edited)
the teams below can be claimed

just advance players one season

or during the draft cut and replace as many as you wish with first year players

from an 11,000 player list i will email you
