ROUND SIX (One League):
This one’s for all the marbles! In this “Championship Round”, we’re going to offer up only the 26 teams that have been around since 1977. From 1977 through 2012 is a span of 36 years. Broken into four categories, you have:
1977-1985 / 1986-1994 / 1995-2003 / 2004-2012
Whichever franchise you select, you will:
(1) Build your roster with at least 6 players (minimum) from each group – none of which can be from the same season; and
(2) At least one pitcher from each category must finish the season with a minimum of 162 IP's; and
(3) At least two position players from each category must finish the season with a minimum of 502 PA's.
If any team finishes the season and doesn't meet the IP and PA minimum requirements listed here, they will be disqualified from the playoffs and winning the Championship. No excuses.
Draft order for this league will be determined by the number of wins in the previous round. Alignment will be in the order teams are chosen (i.e., first four N.L. squads will be N.L. East, etc.).
Here are some other items of interest:
NO: Waiver Wire, Trades or A.A.A.
YES: Designated Hitter – YES.
NO: Injuries – They’ll Be Turned Off.
You may use either full or partial players seasons in this round.
CAP – $120M
Stadium – You must use a park that your franchise called home at any time between 1977 and 2012.
THE WINNER OF THIS ROUND RECEIVES THE WINNER’S PURSE OF $310 FROM WHATIFSPORTS!
