Pick a franchise and then pick any 3 seasons of that franchise’s history from 1920-2013, $105 Million cap. Your roster must come from those 3 seasons of your franchise, no twisting.   No: Clones, AAA, WW. Yes:  DH. 16 team league with no live game requirement to qualify for playoffs. Must use a stadium used by your franchise in one of the years you select. 
 
Franchises are not unique, but specific seasons for a specific franchise are. For example, if someone picks the 1927, 1951, and 2012 Giants, someone else can pick the Giants but they cannot select any of those years for the Giants. 
 
You can have 2 teams but they will be placed in separate leagues. Will initially do random alignment and then adjust to make sure owners don’t have 2 teams in the same league.
 
Make sure you review Baseball reference for franchise history: http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/
 
At least one of the years you pick for your franchise MUST be a year they did NOT qualify for the playoffs.  I will set the league up once 8 teams are in.
 
I will start with the 1931/1948/1968 Yankees

Astros:  1979/1986/1997
