Darn Good Teams 1946-1967

85 M salary cap. Pick a team from 1946-1967 that didn't play in the World Series that year.  Teams must have a winning percentage from .525 to .578.   Roster must contain all players listed by WIS from the team of that year. Subs must cost 200K and come from the same franchise from ‘46-‘67; if this is impossible, can come from ‘01-‘45.  Twist one batter and one pitcher, plus or minus 5 years of your team's year, but must stay from ‘46-‘67 and play for same franchise.

 No WW, not trades, no clones; 6/2 average AAA.  Ballparks from era.  Live play: current series only.  sixteen teams; four make the playoffs.  Roster players listed in baseball-reference.com but not WIS due to less than minimum PA or IP can be twisted if there is an open spot on the roster.

 First 16 owners to sign up are in.  Team choices are first come, first serve.  Each team can be used only once.  I will pick 9th.  Once I pick a team, I will email to all owners the league number.
