Just how good are the 2012 players? Are Miguel Cabrera and Aroldis Chapman ready to take on the world? Or are they hopeless against Addie Joss and Miguel Dilone? Let's find out.
If you choose a 2012 team, you get $120mil to build your team exclusively from 2012 players. If you choose a "regular" team you can have any player you want from 1885-2011, but you only get $100mil to do it. $20mil is a lot of money, but I built teams of each type, and I think either team can win this league. Just to be "fair" to the "regular teams, they can use clones if they want. Obviously the 2012 guys can't.
We will have a 24-team league. I am aiming for 12 teams of each type, and then we would split the divisions so each would have 2 of each type. (NL East has 2 2012s and 2 regulars, NL Central has 2 2012s and 2 regulars, etc.) I'll just use random.org to split up the divisions once we are full.
Here are the rest of the specifics:
Cap: $120mil or $100mil depending on your choice
DH: Yes (both leagues)
Alignment: See above
Stadium: 2012 teams use any park in 2012, regular teams use any park 1885-2011
Live: Not restricted, not required
Clones: Allowed for regular teams
As a special added bonus, I will give a $10 GC to the league winner if they win with an 1885-2011 team.
