I'd be up for that. I have an 88mil team with 200+ plays through 150 games right now (the current "smoke 'em" league)
This post has a rating of , which is below the default threshold.

This is the other end of the spectrum but I just had a team make 352 errors and luck into the WS title (100 million blacklist twist league)  My starting SS Frank Fennelly was in a battle all year to see if he's end up with more hits or errors he JUST pulled it out at the end finishing with 119 hits and 117 errors

Here's a test for you.  Enter the same hitting into a league but use modern era pitchers.  I bet your errors get cut in half.  The 1880's pitchers make your bad fielders significantly worse.

My team ended up losing in the World Series.
10/4/2013 9:36 AM
203+ plays, Petco Park, 97-65.   Just starting playoffs

I tried the same hitters, but a different pitching staff.  Ironically, the pitching staff made more + plays (34 to 18), yet the team made fewer + plays overall.  For some reason, all the regular fielders were down.

Once again, we lost in the World Series. 
1/29/2015 9:59 AM
Finally won a world series with a range team, but I was actually disappointed:
(1) "Only" 173 plus plays (100 more than anyone else in the league, but still, not up to the standards of this thread.  This was despite putting them in Hilltop, which I would have expected to yield a lot more opportunities.
(2) I cheated and used 1908 Joss, which I really prefer not to do in OLs.

The team's ERA is highly misleading...take out the performance by mop-ups and AAA guys and the ERA is 3.23 (in Hilltop remember). 

The offense did well enough to win...here are the stats for the starters:

They went 11-4 in the postseason, and just won round 1 of their TOC, 3-1.

So, still not quite the success I was looking for (200 or more plus plays AND a world series title), but probably my most successful range team to date.
