Hey all....I ran this leage several years ago, and with good results.  The premise is simple....pick a franchise, and draft players that played for that franchise between 1980 and 2012.  The catch?  You can't draft any hitters or pitchers over $8 mil.  Other rules:

$100 mil cap, just to keep things even
No AAA
No WW
No Trades
No Clones
YES to DH (I'm one of the few fans of the DH)
Franchises are exclusive
Play in a stadium your franchise played during this timeframe
Realignment as close to real life as possible

Hoping there is interest for this.  I'll pick after we're halfway filled, and will send out a league number at that time.

Could I change mine to the Padres and not the Orioles?  Trying to branch out from my manic fandom.
3/23/2013 11:36 AM
Okay, I might regret this. I'll take the Royals. Thanks
