I would really be interested in this league if it were with a twist where you could twist any of the players to any season of their career, and a cap of 140.

We've determined $140 mil cap is too high for this theme and twisting doesn't make sense in the spirit of the theme.

I've learned over the years that the best looking team on paper won't come close to making the playoffs & it's usually a sub .500 division winner that wins a league championship!  That's how the SIM baseball God's like it.

I'm putting together a 1985 team & I'm about $2.8 mil below the cap but I have all the best players from the playoff teams of that year, & I like having a deep bench & bullpen which is very tough to do at $100 mil especially w/ a DH...

Do we have a theme number yet?

I'm going to wait until we have at least 12 confirmed owners before I select my year.

Should we go with 16 teams?

Nah I think we can get to 24 teams!

I notice no team has been taken from the years where only 4 playoff teams existed.  Would you consider expanding those year to include 2 WC teams from the top AL and NL teams not to make the playoffs?  For instance, 1985 would add the NYY and NYM.  Which I would tentatively sign up for.  Thanks.

Welcome!  1969 was a playoff team last time I ran this theme!

Just to give you guys a little perspective on this theme.  Last time I ran it with the same cap/rules and 2004 won the World Series over 1981.  The other playoff teams were:  2007, 1996, 1981, 2004, 1969, 1990, 2001, 2005.

If I remember correctly my 1980 team missed the wild card by a game & 1985, 1972, & 1988 all performed well and narrowly missed the playoffs.
 
I would like to keep this theme by using only the playoff teams from the year you choose instead of adding hypothetical playoff teams.  The one concession I could make is adding teams where there was a 1 game playoff to determine division winners/wild card teams, such as the 1995 Angels.

I'll join and take 1975
