In with Ty Cobb,  No Ruth is fine by me,

You're in for a wild ride, my friend. Read those box scores, I cannot explain to you just how fun they'll be.
Love it!  Will the boxscore also show when he gets ejected for spiking Nap Lajoie...

I'll try  Lou gehrig
11/3/2012 11:09 PM
And i'm taking Billy Hamilton, because STEALS!

I'm going say I end up with close to 3000 steals. It will be awesome.

Someone has to do it. I'll take Barry Bonds.
11/4/2012 10:44 AM

Yo Adrian! Cap Anson, why not.

I'm going to get crushed, but I'll try my luck with Paul Molitor

With all the top hitters already taken, it will be hard for anyone else to compete. I could create a team of Ichiro or Raines that I think could perform very well with defense and speed against all those D- catchers. But if I created a team with that hitter, I would leave over $125M on the table and couldn't compete with the others who actually used most of their cap.

Sounds like a really fun league, but I can't convince myself to join with that $255M cap

I'll give you a hint for this league. It's all about speed. Unless you're Babe Ruth, the overwhelming majority of teams that make the playoffs are speed teams. It doesn't matter how much your team costs if you can steal a ridiculous amount of bases. I lost in the world series to the damn Robin Yount/Eddie Plank team that was nowhere close to 255.

I told myself I wasn't gonna join any more leagues until I had a couple finish, but I'm damn happy to see Two Man Band return. 

I'll take Chipper Jones.

I guess I am stating the obvious, but I feel that is is a MUST to be said...  If you took a Pitcher in round 1, you need to take a Batter in round 2 & vice versa?  Avoiding to obvious by taking 2 pitchers or 2 batters - & using 200K to fill the opposite side is NOT an option, right?  You KNOW someone would TRY to do this, just to foul things up -
11/7/2012 2:59 PM
Why the hell would you do that?

(I'm in but biding my time for now)
11/7/2012 5:20 PM
Yeah, I never thought that even needed to be said. Of course. If you take a batter in the first, you have to take a pitcher in the 2nd, and vice versa. I think in the 4 or 5 seasons this has been done, no one has ever brought that up!

Edit: elduro, it might be easier if you just pick your player now.
