I too have myIowa team ready, havent decided on an Stadium yet.  Talk about tough choices.  Came down to a monster trosky season or a typical anson season.  Wont say which way I wnt yet, but fun to see who actually played in my state.

Perhaps next season, playing @ $110 mil w/ a DH would make it equitable. Then Iowa could use both Trosky & Anson.

Im in with New York
9/26/2012 3:18 PM
Another owner has already claimed New York.  Would you like to try another state?
9/26/2012 4:31 PM (edited)
The problem with Wisconsin is using SP's under $10 mil & where to put Lave Cross!

I'm trying to avoid having Brad Radke as my 5th starter...

9/27/2012 10:50 PM
OK guys league has been created since I'm not going to use any 2012 players for WI.  Here is my team so everybody can see how equitable a $100 mil cap will be:

Why would you want to use Ruth twice?  If you do that you will only have about 70M left to spend on the REST of your 23 players?!  I spent 30M total on 3 players & had to pick Scrubs for the other 22 players...
9/28/2012 10:25 AM
You can use 1 version of Ruth the pitcher & the hitter because Maryland doesn't have great starting pitching other than Lefty Grove.  Just wanted to give you some more roster flexibility!

so, to clarify, 1 pitcher ruth AND 1 hitter ruth?
9/28/2012 1:56 PM
That is correct if you wish to use Ruth the pitcher.  I'm sure you'll use him as a hitter although Maryland's OF is pretty solid w/out him.
